Phil Accardi is a Professional Panen138 Player. He earned the Position of Sports Betting Consultant based on his vast experience in the Betting Industry. The best record of his career was finishing as the Head of the Borgata Hotel Casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey in 1991, having won about $150,000 in the tournament that year. Since then, Phil has been a regular at the final table of the WSOP.
His style is related to aggressive betting, calling stations holding on to the nuts, and tight players. In 1998, Phil took 3rd place in the very first event at the WSOP Main Event. He earned prize money of $200,000. Phil has written many books on the subject and regularly contributes to the online book site.
The books have been written with a very popular gimmick. The beginners, in the books, are all raising the same blind. So, the book says if you call the raise, the small blind will put in 2 dollars from the small stacks, and the big blind will put in 4 dollars. The flop is dealt, there is $10,000, and the players with good hands or “Good hands” putting in between $4 and $8, and the players who play a lot of high cards, like Kings, Queens, and Jacks, are all in together. Phil picks up pocket 6’s and is dealt 20 dollars. There is $30,000. Phil is quite disappointed with his poor hand, since he put in $20,000, and the rest of the players are putting up between $60 and $100. Phil is sitting on the big blind with 5-4 suited. The player to his left raises to $12.50. Phil calls, and the pot is $55. The flop is 6-4-2. The majority of the players are still playing hands, so Phil has a free card. The turn and river are 5’s. Phil has a pair of 6’s.
The player to his left seems to want to get lucky so he raises to $15.20. Phil calls. The pot is $102 and the two players are still playing. On the river card, Phil checks. He has pocket 3’s. The player behind them folds. Phil then turns over 53 cents. The pot is $180 and the two players are still playing.
Phil is the all-in player with a pair of 7’s. The small blind folds and the big blind calls. The small blind shows 9 9 inside. There is $ illuminating the inside. It’s a bit of lightening in the room.
It’s turn $10 of hearts and Phil has 2 hearts with a gutshot straight. Can’t lose this one, can’t win! Phil bets $50, the player behind them raises to $100, and Phil turns it over. It’s a $200,000.00 pot.
Hold on, this is getting too complicated.
The flop is the 8h-4h-3c. The big blind checks. Hey, what’s this? The small blind checks. That makes it even. Better yet, the big blind decides to call the $200.00. That means he bought in with $100,000.00. That’s a good play by the big blind, re-raise the $200,000.00, take nothing back.There was no flush, as the SB wouldn’t call with something less than the entire amount of the SB buy-in.
The turn is the 7h. It would be bad if you were the SB and found out your hand was already beaten by the big blind. Anyway, the big blind shows Qh-5h, top pair. The small blind shows Kc-5s, a better but not a hand you want to get involved with.
Now is the time to keep betting. Keep betting the $200.00 and remember, this is a $200,000.00 bet. Keep calling $200.00 or until you win.There was no flush, so you get to keep your original call amount. If you are called, you add the call amount to the original $200.00.
When you win, cash out all the money. Then you will have $600.00. Leave that $600.00 original bet on the table, now and forever you will bet that same $600.00 on every red hand.
By this time you have become familiar with betting $200.00 on red and you will be ready for the next hand.
