To stabilize the beer and avoid spoilage more hops were added and the alcohol content was increased. The antiseptic properties of alcohol assured Indian expatriates their ale.

Poker - a game of chance or a game of skill? Chance, because of the random dealing of playing cards; skill as players have to make informed decisions based on the risk-reward nature of the game and the general probabilities presented with each hand.

Among the more interesting tips and trivia contained in our Poker Tips & Trivia Playing Cards are the following:

When players are placing their bets watch which chips they use. Using small denomination chips for the same size bet usually denotes weakness or a bluff while using larger denomination chips often subconsciously indicates confidence and strength. If you are betting using a black chip to bet $100 it looks like a smaller wager than a bet of $90 using three green chips and three red chips even though it's $10 more. If your opponent is inexperienced you can put more chips in the pot when you would like him to fold and the greater number of chips in the pot is more intimidating than only one and conversely if you are looking for action, bet with fewer chips.
