Facts about card cheating in Texas Hold'em poker:

Cheating at Texas Hold'em Poker is a lucrative business. Let's examine two simple facts: poker is a popular card game, in addition it is not a recreational card game, but rather one that is played for money. These simple facts make poker a very attractive card game for those with an appetite for action - amongst them, the card sharks.

The opportunities for cheating at poker are endless. Some poker cheats used sleight-of-hand techniques, others resort to the use of marked cards or other cheating gaffs... etc. Perhaps the most disarming strategy to cheat in poker is collusion - when two or more players secretly play together as a team, against one or more other players seated at the card table.

Since cheating at poker is by no means a rare occurrence, one can not possibly ignore the fact that a poker cheat can enter any game, at any place, any time. This is why any serious poker player should educate himself/herself about card cheating. Any time you sit down at the card table you expose yourself to the risk of being cheated. There can only be one logical conclusion - educate yourself about card cheating and you will ultimately be a better player.
