Poker Crackdown Could Boost Three Card Brag

Saturday, Apr. 23rd 2011 12:38 PM

Last week the FBI and US Department of Justice turned the world of online poker on its head by seizing the domains of leading poker sites that served US players and that action will have a knock-on effect across the internet, not just at poker sites. The online poker crackdown could boost three card brag player numbers and prizes. ‘How?’ we hear you ask. Well there are a number of reasons why the fallout from online poker’s Black Friday could boost online three card brag.

Firstly, the major benefactors from last Friday’s shutdown of the world’s three largest online poker networks were the non-US serving poker sites, which include BetFred Poker on the iPoker Network and Stan James Poker on the Microgaming Network. As both of these poker providers also offer multiplayer online three card brag games there’s every chance that some of them will try their hand at a few games as a change from poker.

Bankroll Management Strategy

Monday, Jan. 3rd 2011 1:09 AM

Like many card games that are played for money, 3 card brag has an element of chance and can leave even the most experienced player in the middle of a losing streak. When playing online 3 card brag at sites such as BetFred Brag, it is vital that you observe and strictly adhere to a bankroll management strategy.

Many uninitiated online 3 card brag players ‘go broke’ unnecessarily due to poor bankroll management. An all too common mistake of losing players is to up stakes when things go wrong. This is exactly the opposite of what you should do. If your bankroll is taking a nosedive you should reduce your stakes, allowing you to keep enough money to get out of your losing streak. If you up your stakes while your bankroll is going down you will soon run out of games to play.
