He says he wants to teach me how to gamble. So I was thinking I would play the poker and blackjack in this game until I become good at them (I have won poker/blackjack games in this game before but I'm pretty sure they were mostly due to luck). My logic is if I can win alot of money from them in this game that should translate to real life too. Is there anything about this plan that will backfire?
The fact that gambling requires extreme luck and math skill might backfire. Plus casino games are always slightly rigged towards to the house. --- "I'm taking all your shoes to hell with me!" - John Marston
Also there's a little difference between online playing and real playing: Facial expressions. That can give your game pretty easily and with online playing you don't have to worry about it.
But still, you can get good experience in this game. I myself learned to play poker in RDR and began to play IRL, usually being a good player. --- "O Admonishing melody, arise in the of Necromancer. Mystic Cage"
Play blackjack and roulette. Blackjack is easy but you'll lose a lot to make a lot. Roulette on the other hand makes you crazy money and is simple till you really get the hang of it, Bet black or red till you get into it. --- Vegetarian- an old Indian word meaning bad hunter
Pretty much everything has been said. Poker: you can learn how the game is played by playing it on RDR, but you'll have to play it in real life to experience it properly. If your playing for money, it gets really intense because your playing for an actual prize. And as the other person said, facial expressions, body language etc, you'll have to keep them at a minimum.
