Texas Hold Em Poker Tips – How To Vary Your Style Of Play

Alot of Texas Hold Em Poker books that contain tips and tricks will talk about how important having a good starting hand is in your overall strategy to winning pots. However, you may have seen, either on the Internet or TV, professionals playing almost any hand and winning. How can this be so? In fact, unknown to you, their actions probably fall within a carefully thought out strategy for confusing and attacking their opponents.

The reason they play more hands is to vary their style of play to keep their competition guessing what they have. If they play to tight all the time their opponents will know that when they raise they have something good, or if they are always playing loose their raises will never be taken completely seriously. One of the most important things you can do when playing No Limit Hold Em is to conceal the quality of your hand. You do this by varying your style of play, so that no matter what you have the other players can’t put you on a specific hand at any given time.

New players will always assume that you have a great hand if you raise big. Experienced players know this so sometimes raise when they only have small cards. This is the essence of the bluff. To pull it off, the experienced players never play the same hand the same way – they are always mixing it up. If you constantly play similar hands in a similar fashion you will become too predictable and be an easy read.

One effective way to vary your style of play is by basing it on the opponents your are versing. If a certain player is dancing in and out of every pot, always calling and raising, playing really loose, then if he raises and you have a good hand like an A-K, you can safely guess that he probably doesn’t have a fantastic hand, so you can move all in to steal the pot. However, if you are versing a extremely tight player who only ever enters a pot when he has pure gold cards, if he raised, even if you had an A-K you could fold them down and not bother messing with him. This is an example of how you can vary your style of play.

Keep in mind you are never going to make 100% completely correct judgments 100% of the time. And you are never going to vary your style of play enough, correctly, or in the best situations. Everyone makes mistakes, we are all only human. The tips and tricks are all for practicing, trying out, testing etc so you can increase the quality of your Texas Hold Em Poker game.

Texas Hold Em Poker Tips – Playing Hands Of Middle Suit Connectors And Small Pairs

In a perfect work we would all play premium cards every hand but, in reality, this isn’t always an available strategy. In Texas Holdem Poker, all-roundedness and resilience are favourable traits. You can play smaller pairs or middle suited connectors some hands given the right situations.

Middle suited connectors are hole cards that fall within the middle of the stack so they have room available above and below them. Of course suited means they are the same suit. Examples of this would be 9C-8C or 7H-6H. It is fair enough to see a flop with these cards as long as the price to pay isn’t high. Don’t be afraid to make small raises though as these hands have the potential to make alot of money from you opponents if you actually hit something on the flop.

Personally, I consider anything 10 and below a small pair and you can debate this as you will. You can take my tips or leave them. Lets face it though, the average poker player’s chances with a 10 are quite similar to a 3 or 4. Don’t move to the flop unless noone has raised before you, or after you call. Small pairs are one of the easiest hands to make a decision on; if you don’t pull trips on the flop just bail.

Middle pairs are much tougher to play and this is the reason its small or nothing in my books. If you can flop a set (a set is three of a kind) thats great, if not you can get yourself into a pickle. Suppose you have yourself pocket 9′s and the flop comes J-8-4. Even if you opponent had bet first and its your turn or if you raise first and they call you, you have a dire situation on your hands. These types of plays require the utmost skill in decision making, with instincts playing a vital role in the process. Lets face it, you probably don’t have what it takes to make a call any better then a pure guess, and if you are playing online poker then you may aswell be playing with your eyes shut. Solution? Don’t get into the situation to begin with.

Playing middle suit connectors and small pairs is a viable game plan sometimes. Other factors, like opponents playing style, current position on table and availalbe chips will also affect how these hands can be played. Don’t be scared, but don’t get too confident either.

Texas Hold Em Poker Tips – How To Know Everyone’s Cards

When you continue to guess what cards your opponent has, and then get more refined and accurate with your guesses and they start actually being quite close to correct, your Texas Hold em Poker game skyrockets to new levels. Obviously, the object is to try to find out, as close as you possible can, what hands your opponents have and you do this by constant information gathering, guessing, refining, gathering and guessing some more. You should be doing this at all times when you are playing poker. At all times! I cannot stress this enough.

Once you have been watching how and when every player is betting and gather enough information about them, actions and patterns will start to become more clear. You will realise why one certain guy just limped in before the flop, or why a certain women is continually checking but then raising in other situations. You will be able to better sort what type of opponent you are versing and what type of cards they have. Basics first, but when you get more advanced you will be able to extrapolate why a certain person bet in a certain way with one hand, and a different way with a very similar hand, and possibly what they were trying to achieve.

The whole process starts by carefully and meticulously watching your opponents and every move they make. The first thing to really concentrate on is how the opponent is betting before the flop. After watching this, you continue to narrow down hands from here on in. If they just check on the flop, try to figure out why they missed the flop (as in didn’t get a good hand on the flop), or if they actually missed the flop or not. Do you think they are playing a drawing hand? Could they be trying to play a second or bottom pair? Maybe they have a monster and are slow-playing, using the old check-raise strategy? Asking questions like this and continually checking the results (if the opponent goes to the river and lays down there cards see what they had and if it matched your guess) will enable you to know what cards your opponent has in later deals.

An opponents betting patterns, whether they call or raise, tips you off to which cards they could have. Your experience, as in the information you have gathered, the guesses and confirmed guesses you’ve previously made, helps you narrow down what they could have into what they should, or you think, they have. By doing this every hand, I’ll say every hand just one more time, you will significantly increase your Texas Hold em Poker game and will be able to know what cards your opponent has.

Texas Hold Em Poker Tips – Observing Your Opponents

The more you learn about your opponents in Texas Hold em Poker, the better. The more information you have, the more fine tuned your gut feelings and reads are, the more you are able to beat the other players at the table. Tips, tricks and secrets mean nothing if you have no idea what cards you opponent has. Of course you’ll never know what they have, but you can get a pretty good idea of what type of cards they may have and that is better then nothing.

Once you have been at a table for 30 minutes or more, and you’ve been paying particular attention to your opponents and their style of play – and of course you have been doing this because you are an avid Texas Hold em Poker player that follows all my tips and tricks – you should be able to put your finger on their exact style of play and be able to make judgements about the calls they are making and why.

When you have, or think you have, determined your opponents style of play its alot easier to play better against them. I.e. If you have determined that a certain player is very tight (tight as in the traditional sense, tight with money) and they go into a pot with a large raise you know that you definitely do not want to get involved unless you have an extraordinary hand, and even then you are cautious.

Now imagine a similar situation where a loose player brings it in for a raise and you don’t have much of a hand. Because you know this person will raise with almost anything you can follow fairly safely even if you have a good hand or don’t. Then you get to see the flop, you might pickup something, end up taking the pot and increasing your kitty. If not, you knew safely it was actually worth the shot. Whereas back to the tight player, you almost know its not actually worth trying.

You need to be making moves that you believe will give you the advantage to win the pot. You cannot base this on blind guesses, you need information to make informed decisions. By observing your opponents you may be able to determine what their style of play is. You should make your decisions based on the type of opponent you are facing. Sometimes, this is one of the more difficult Texas Hold em Poker tips to actually do/implement.

Texas Hold Em Poker Tips – Putting Your Opponent On A Hand

Imagine, just imagine, if you could play a game of No Limit Hold Em but your opponents cards had to be face up. How easy would it be? You would know exactly when to raise to steal his pot, when not to bother calling his raise because he has such a good hand, whether it was worth going heads up or playing a pot down to the river. If he’s not allowed to see your cards but you could see his, that would make the game extremely unfair and you would basically be able to win everytime. Of course this is never going to really happen, but you can in fact use strategies and methods to determine what cards your opponent actually has.

The most important thing to do if you want to know what cards your opponent is to pay close attention to the game and gather as much information as possible. The more information you have on the other players the more effectively you will be able to put the on a hand. To develop this skill, you need to constantly be trying to figure out what cards your opponent has and then check that guess against what cards he really did have when he lays them down. You are going to get alot of incomplete information and this makes the process quite difficult, but if you hang in there and learn how to perform this neat trick effectively and consistently you will exponentially increase your Texas Hold em Poker game.

You should be playing this guessing game 100% of the time you are at a poker table. No matter how insignificant you think a hand is, no matter how much is in the pot or what the stakes are. Even if you have folded, actually especially if you have folded, you should be paying close attention to all the other players and guessing what hands they have, trying to figure it out based on all the information you have. Then finally at the end of the pot you’ll see the cards and you will be able to cross-reference that back to what you thought and why. As time goes on and your guesses are confirmed or denied, you’ll know how accurate you are and this will enable you to make even better judgements in the future.

You should try to get your hands on more tips on how to more effectively guess your opponents hands. Anything that will enable you to more effectively perform this act will help you win more Texas Hold em Poker games and you will become a better player.

Texas Hold Em Poker Tips – Think Your Hands Through

Taking time to think things through is very important in Texas Hold em Poker because it potentially tips the game into your favour. When its your turn to act, you don’t have to do it immediately. You aren’t being forced. Its not like someone has a gun to your head forcing you to take your move in the next three seconds. You shouldn’t rush yourself. Many new Texas hold em poker players, for one reason or another, try to make quick moves. They try to do all their thinking while its the other players turns, not completely registering that players move and including it in the decision making process. You need to take enough time to think things through.

Now, no one likes a lengthy deliberations ever single time there’s a move – you definitely do not want to slow the game down to extremes. But you are allowed to take the time to think about key moves you have to make. Your allowed to pause to think over the situation.

When you review the betting action that took place in front of you, you can calculate your actual odds of winning, consider the opponent, who else your up against, and then you make your move.

A secondary benefit of thinking before you act is after the fact, you won’t end up second guessing yourself nearly as often. You won’t ever think to yourself ‘Maybe I should have folded when he raised so much” or things like “If I had of thought it through I probably would have…”. All of those debilitating second guess thoughts most people go through after the lose a pot, take a bad beat, make the wrong decision, or think they did, end up taking a toll on you, psychologically.

I’m sure you’ve been at a table, someone’s made a move, and the next guy is just sitting their blankly. Staring at the cards. You’re all thinking “What is this guy doing? Come on!”. In all probability he is actually calculating some pot odds. Based on his pockets, whats on the board, the big blinds, the pot, the raise that last guy just made, he is calculating how much to bet or if its even worth bothering. This is in fact a very helpful strategy if you can do it. Thinking things through has its benefits. So the next time your playing a pot, and your up, take this Texas Hold em Poker tips advice and think it through a little bit.

Texas Hold Em Poker Tips – Implied Pot Odds & Early Calculations

This Texas Hold em Poker tips all about calculating your odds early and determining your implied pot odds. By early I mean before the river. Say you have an open ended straight draw after the flop is down and your opponent raises before you. If you calcualte the pot odds you might not get the 5-to-1 needed to match your payoff risk, say your getting 4-to-1 or 3-to-1. You have to remember that the hand isn’t over and the pot isn’t complete. If there isn’t five times your opponents bet in the pot already you have to think of what might/could happen before the hand is over.

As you have more rounds of betting to go, that is after top turn and the river, your not only going to win whats in the pot right now but also the additions to the pot over time. If your opponent is going to raise again later, or even if you raise to push him to call, that would increase the size of the pot and the overall amount you are going to win. So if the numbers don’t fall into place right now they could, or probably would, be good enough later one when the pot is a bit chunkier. This is what is called implied odds.

Being able to understand and calculate implied odds is an extremely important part of playing Texas Hold em poker, one that winners take full advantage of. Yuo need to be able to grasp the fact that you aren’t playing for the amount of money sitting in the pot right now, but the amount that will be sitting in the pot by the end of the hand. You’re not going to win the amount thats in the pot before or after the flop, you’re going to win the whole amount thats sitting there after the river!

How much you can win if you call the bet and hit the card your waiting for? Are you going to win alot more money? By caling a bet, even though the current odds and payoff risk aren’t good enough, might be an opportunity to rake in a massive win and grow your stack. Take this Texas Hold em Poker tips advice, calculate both your pot odds, payoff risk, and more importantly, your implied pot odds. These numbers might prove to be extremely insightful and help you make the best calls in a particular hand.

Top Tips on How to Win Texas Hold ‘em Poker

When people speak of poker, there is one name that cuts above the rest of the poker classification—the Texas Hold ‘em poker. This type of poker is considered to be the most popular type being played in the casinos today, whether online or in real casinos.

Generally, Texas Hold ‘Em Poker starts with a batch of two players situated at the left of the “dealer button.” This dealer buttons refers to the round disc being passed on clockwise on each player. It signifies who will be dealer in the event that the deal was move forward from one player to another.

The betting starts on the first part of the game where the money is placed into the pot before dealing the cards. Normally, the first blind is the one that places half of the required minimum stake. The first blind refers to the player situated at the left of the dealer. The second blind, on the other hand, is the one responsible in placing the full minimum required bet.

Since the very object of the game is to win whatever is in the pot, it is best to know some rules or strategies so as to get an edge over the other players. Here’s how:

1. The table.

When a player is playing Texas hold ‘em poker, the best thing that he or she should consider is selecting the table. This is because players, regardless of their skills in playing the game, will be constrained to give their best shots if the table is too assertive, too rigid or too loose, or if it consists of players that are more skillful.

The bottom line: Even if the essence of winning the game is directly affected by the skills of the player, it is still best to play on a table that has few raisers but many callers.

The logic behind this concept is based on the fact that the more raisers there are in a table, the lesser the chances of winning the game.

2. When a player is in the early position, it is best to raise with K-K, A-K, and A-As, then, with A-Qs, Q-Q, J-J, A-K, T-T, have a call and then fold everything else.

3. For players who already have a remarkable hand starters, especially when he or she has a high pair, say JJ or even higher, it is best not to hesitate raising it before the flop.

Indeed, playing Texas hold ‘em poker requires skills also. It is not all based on gambling. This just goes to show that games like this requires both luck and skill to win the pot.

Texas Hold Em Poker Tips – Choose Your Starting Hands Wisely

The most important thing you can do when playing Texas Hold em Poker is to choose your starting hands wisely. If you plan to be able to give tips to the dealer you must be very selective about the hands you decide to play. Always enter a pot with good pocket cards – pairs or two high cards – and aggressively play them from the flop right through to the river.

The biggest mistake inexperienced players make in poker is to play too many pots early on. You cannot be successful this way – you simply have to fold alot of hands in Texas Hold em in order to win overall. Don’t kid yourself into thinking an A-3 offsuit is likely to win you a pot or try to impress the table with your audacity. Even if you pull an ace on the flop, whats more likely to happen is another player will end up winning due to a higher kicker.

Here’s some good tips for newer players. Excluding if you start with a pocket pair, unless your hand is nice and tight by the flop don’t try to justify to yourself you should continue. This rule is true for any pot size, no matter how small. When playing Texas Hold em Poker, if your not in a good position by the flop you have very little chance of winning. I would be lieing if I said noone has ever one without being in a good position from the flop but seriously, we are talking about good quality, consistent results here, and being in nice form by the flop is a pre-requisite. For example, if you have a K-Q and the flop comes out K-5-2, you are in a good position. If however it comes J-8-3, you have nothing and you should fold.

Choosing your starting hands wisely is the key to pulling together great hands and raking in massive wins. You win with full houses by having two pairs on the flop. You win with straights and flushes by having 4 of the 5 cards already done on the flop. You need good pocket cards to pull these together and still have enough surprise factor to enable you to have your opponent raise and re-raise. The crazy luck, final card on the river kind of win’s rarely happen in real life – its not like poker in the movies. Like I said, you simply have to fold alot of hands in Texas Hold em in order to win overall, so don’t be afraid to.

Texas Hold Em Poker Tips – Always Bet The Correct Amount

When playing Texas Hold em Poker, deciding how much to bet and when is an extremely important decision you have to make pretty much every hand. Even if you are deciding not to bet, zero is still an amount, so in fact this decision impacts the game aswell. The other players see this and another ‘He folded’ gets added to their tally on info about you.

Betting is an art. Because there is so much variety in the amount you can bet in No Limit Texas Hold em every different amount sends just a slightly different message. Three times the blind is different to five times, and much different to ten times. The sliding scale of impact continues, seemingly exponentially. Combine this with comparing your bet to your stack, and then against every different players stack, and then against the most obvious opponents stack for that hand, and betting starts to get almost too complex to grasp.

But you can grasp betting and learn to how effectively bet, just read a few tips and you’ll be on your way. Heres one: if you the first one to enter the pot, you are better off to either raise or just fold. Do not enter the pot by calling. This is a rule of thumb ok and it works pretty well, especially if you are not a poker professional. So if your new to poker, and your the first one to enter the pot, raise or fold, its that simple. When you do this, raise about the same amount every time. It doesn’t matter if your packing pocket aces, or bluffing a 7-2, raise between three and five times the big blind.

This strategy works because the bet is big enough to force your opponent to have some sort of fairly good hand in order to atleast call and play with you. When you are consistent – remember I said raise about the same amount every time – you opponent cannot put you on a hand. They don’t know if you playing a premium pair or just middle suit connectors. Maintaining this mysteriousness in Texas Hold em Poker is vital if you are going to survive. The amounts you bet when you raise, or if call or fold, will provide everyone with tell tale signs of you, your style, your type, your cards, what you have, everything. Remember, whenever your are the first player in a pot, follow the general guideline and bet three to give times the big blind or just fold em.
