Final tips for playing winning poker

As promised, here are more Poker tips to help you on your way to being a winner when playing Texas Hold’em. Continuing from where we left off.

Evaluate your opponents at every opportunity. When a very tight player lifts preflop from starting position, he has strong starting power. Clean your hands unless you have an ace, king, or queen (handmade) or premium drawing hands (AK, AQ, AJ, KQ). Becomes more inclined to call up (or, perhaps, even raise) aggressive players in similar situations.

If you catch NUTS on the flop, play your hand to make the pot visit dewapoker. The nut is a hand that cannot be beat, considering the cards that are shown on the board. Don’t bet or increase the flop. Let your opponent lead the bet, and just call until the turn. Then, a raise would be great if you believed your opponent would make a bet after your check. Let him think he has the best hands at that. Then, on the river, it is usually best to bet; if not, your opponent will likely check you out if you try for another raise. Notifying the opposite, like sitting in your chair, can encourage one or two callers.

You have already dealt pocket aces. This won’t happen very often (once every one of your hands). Make the best of it. You have 80% of the favorites over every opponent who sees the flop with you. If more than four opponents defend, you are the underdog; You will lose more times than you win. Bet or raise to thin the pitch. The best way to compete with two or three opponents.

Want to come home victorious? Variance – ebb – inherent. The best way to be a winner is to stop while you are ahead. Have a reasonable goal. At that point, you can pack up and go home – a winner! Not ready to leave the casino; Would you like to play again? GOOD. Cash in your chips. Record how much money you have won. (Hope you keep a record.) Could be a good time to have an early dinner.

Beware of calling stations – players who, once they’ve invested in the pot, are reluctant to fold on the next betting round. Don’t try to bully players like that.

Never be a “hunter” – the player who stays in the hand if he has a chance to catch the card that made it. Hunters are losers. Every now and then, he will get lucky and win that pot. But, the odds were very far against him, in the long run, he would definitely lose his chips.
