One of the things I love about playing texas holdem poker is that if you play long enough you can pretty much make any player you play fit or folds. If you attracted four or five of a kind, you can pretty much play them off the table. I have several friends in the online poker world that have written books on how to play limit hold ’em. If you learn to be more selective and more aggressive in your starting hands, you can make big money in no time.
Not many people are comfortable playing mediocre hands and waiting for a monster to win the pot. Most players don’t like waiting for those hands and they want to make money the minute they sit on the table. Most players are scared to lose money if they don’t have a big hand. What many players do not understand is that a big hand is based on two separate cards. The poker hand rankings are based on five cards and the best five cards. To make a hand the best hand possible, you have to use two hole cards and three community cards. Many “Donkeys” will call with hands like 3-4-5 off suit. The difference between a good hand and a champion hand is based on the number of hole cards. It is also important to stay away from playing many hands at once. It is said that playing more than one hand at a time can distract you, and can cause you to lose more money than if you play them one at a time.
When you play texas holdem, there are many different ways to play the same hand. In limit hold ’em, there are many starting hands, such as the following: Action, Premium Gold, Cash Ball, Pineapple, and others. In no-limit hold ’em, there are many starting hands, such as the following: Pocket Rockets, Sailboats, Trifectas, and others. If you start laying down hands like those, you may find yourself broke after the flop. How many times have you tried to make a big hand, only to end up with a low hand? If you learn to lay down hands that are in the middle of the range, you will be able to make more profitable investments into your poker account.
In limit hold ’em, many people play marginal hands, such as the low end of the range, as sets. In no-limit hold ’em, people can play any hand they want, as long as they want to. To make a consistent profit in limit, you have to be selective in your starting hands. laying down a hand like 3-3 offsuit on the flop, in middle position, is just not a very good investment. Even if there are multiple people in the hand, you are very unlikely to be able to scoop the flop. If you have a pocket pair, you are still at a disadvantage if the flop comes J-7-2. Even pocket 2’s are at a disadvantage if the flop comes A-5-2.
As far as starting hands go, pocket 3’s through 6’s are your best friends. Now you can say, “But what if I get a 6 and a 3?” Many people believe that one of the reasons for poker is to occasionally get a ” drafts ” and make a winning hand. Now, if you’re talking about a poker tournament, not just a one on one game, but a series of games, then you can say that a 6 and a 3 is just not a very good hand. Many people will try to make a case that a 6 and a 3 is a good hand because it can win just by itself. But that logic is flawed, because it doesn’t take into account all of the other factors in the game.
Let’s say, for example, that you had pocket 3’s and went up against pocket 5’s. How many people are there left to act behind you? If there are a lot of people, you are much better off to act last. You are guaranteed to act last for every round of betting. If there are a few people left to act after you, you are better off to act first. The reason this is a good strategy for Texas Hold ‘Em is because it can save you a lot of money. If you act first, you can often get a better price on your hand than if you wait and it can cost you less money.
The problem with waiting is that sometime you might still lose. That can cost you a lot of money. But, you just don’t lose as much as if you had raised. The thing with betting is that sometimes you have to bet to force the other players to make the decision for you.
