How to Analyze your Poker Hands from BetMGM

Poker is a game of strategy as much as luck. Study and preparation can work wonders for your gameplay, making it crucial to look back on your previous games, point out any mistakes and work through kinks in your tactics or approach.

One of the best ways to improve quickly is to dissect your poker hand history, unlocking hidden insights as you sharpen your decision-making skills through examination. Poker hand analysis reveals the underlying dynamics of your moves, allowing you to understand the strengths, weaknesses and mistakes in your gameplay. Whether you’re an online poker beginner or a seasoned expert with proven poker skills, fine-tuning your strategy allows you to gain a competitive edge at the poker table. 

In order for it to work in your favor, you have to be meticulous in your analysis, use all the tools available to you and be honest with yourself regarding weaker aspects of your play style. By dissecting your past hands, you can identify leaks in your strategy, spot patterns in your opponents’ behavior and make data-driven adjustments to improve your overall game.

If you want to study your poker plays and have fun while you’re at it, register with BetMGM Online Casino and begin your quest for perfected plays today. DEPOSIT MINIMUM $10 AND RECEIVE 100% MATCH UP TO $1,000 PLUS $25 FREEPLAY® ON THE HOUSE

Where To Begin

If you want to record your poker hands accurately, there are three ways to do so; hand histories in-game, hand-tracking software and good old pen and paper. Tracking everything yourself takes more work and you’re missing out on the advantages of modern technology, so it’s best to become familiar with the perks of tech-assisted analysis sooner rather than later.

There are also various tools available for effective hand analysis, from equity calculators to hand converters and solvers. These tools will help you grasp the fundamentals of hand equities, ranges and optimal plays. By bringing these resources into your analysis process, you’ll be better equipped to make informed decisions at the poker table.

The Best Countries for Casino Tourism from BetMGM

Land-based casinos remain popular tourist attractions all over the world. Despite a near-infinite selection of casino games that can be played online, such as online slots, live dealer games and casino table games, land-based casinos continue to attract masses of people, primarily because of the social aspect involved.

Because of this, there has been a growth in casino tourism. We’ll discuss why that is the case, as well as which countries you should add to your list if you consider yourself a potential casino tourist.


What Is Casino Tourism?

The term “casino tourism” is quite self-explanatory, as it refers to the pleasure people take in traveling, not only for the purpose of sightseeing but also to visit popular casinos across the globe. Of course, they may try their hand at jackpot slots and other games in the hope of winning big, but visits to casinos aren’t always geared toward winning. It’s reported that the casino tourism industry is growing precisely because it prompts people to get on the road or on a flight to seek out and experience the thrill of a vibrant nightlife in person. 


The very nature of casino environments means that there’s always a buzz, and with people coming from all corners of the world there may well be some of them who haven’t yet obtained sufficient local currency. Fortunately, casinos still use chips instead of cash, not only to accommodate tourists but also for the sake of tradition, aesthetics and security-related reasons – which patrons no doubt appreciate.
