How To Spot Big Pocket Pairs In Cash Games

How To Spot Big Pocket Pairs In Cash Games

I spot big pocket pairs all the time I play online texas holdem, especially in high stakes games. These pocket pairs can be the best thing that you can have out of all the dewabet hands. But, if you aren’t getting the right cards, they just sort of grow on you. Of course, I wouldn’t want you to develop an addiction to poker, but I do want to help you increase your success with these types of hands. How do I do this? I break them down into two categories. The first category are cards that function as pockets, but don’t function as good cards. These are the cards that get re-raised preflop, or get re-raised on the flop when they are missed. These cards will hurt your stack and you should find a way to get out of them before you get hooked. The second category of cards are the ones that function as good cards, but don’t have great hands. These are the cards that you will want to play aggressively every time, unless there is a scenario that exactly fits the situation.

For example, if you have pocket kings and a player re-raises you all in, you will want to call him probably in most cases. However, against one other player, you will likely want to fold your pocket queens against him. The main reason for this is because you are almost never going to have a high pocket pair against this player. It is too early in the event to be playing any type of hands against this player. When you play against loose players that will play any hand, you will have to be aware of their Weekly Match Play Schedule. You need to know when to play tight versus loose players that will play any hand. In the beginning you should play tight versus loose players that will play any hand, until you know what your table image is against this player type. What that means is that the only hands you play against these players that are loose are the hands pre-flop that don’t have great value.

For example, the blinds are very low with 4 players, and everyone checks the flop. You have a pocket pair and an ace. It is folded around, and a loose player open raises. You are sitting on the button with 4 high. If you call this loose player, you are calling a raising war. If you re-raise then you are playing a tighter game against this type of player. As the blinds rise, you will want to isolate one player by raising pre-flop, or to try and test the waters against this player. A loose player that is a fan of early position will raise from early position. It is your job to throw this player a bone when you have a premium hand pre-flop. If you are unable to isolate this player then it is time to get out of the hand because you are playing a hand that could be a winner, but not if you are playing this loose.

In the middle position, you can loosen up slightly. You already have some chips in the pot because another player wasocks it to you. If you called the big blind, it shows you did assess the situation and assess the risk/reward ratio of playing your hand pre-flop. In middle position, you are in a better position than the players behind you. You can re-raise. It ends the matter right here.

Late position is where most players play their hands. Is the table tight or loose? If it is loose, you want to stay out of hands that can be a problem. If it is tight, you are hoping that the players behind you will fold their hands and thus protect your hand when you play a big pot. You can open up your starting hands here. You already have some chips in the pot and an ace is probably behind. It is time to open up the aggression. A lot of players are not going to believe you have an ace and there is going to be some raising. Be aggressive and you will win these hands. If the hands above did not happen, you will probably still end up with some money in the pot. Sometimes you will win big and other times you will lose big, but you are a sure winner every time. Study the tables you play and you will know what to expect. Learn to read players and don’t make the same mistake that they do. They are currency dealers at the casino. Use your table position to your advantage and play aggressive. The more aggressive you are, the more you will win.

How to Win at Blackjack - The Secret of Blackjack

How to Win at Blackjack – The Secret of Blackjack

How to win at Blackjack? What is the secret to Blackjack gaming? How do some people know when to quit and when to stay? What are the possibilities of winning that natural 20 or 24 or even sometimes 20/40 point hand in Blackjack? Lets find out.

Blackjack is one of the most studied and known casino games the world over. Why is it popular? Simply, so many people know it is popular. dotted all the globe, casinos, television stations, and even the internet, casinos, are overwhelmed with people who want to take their chances in a casino.

Because MPO777 is so popular the people who learn it and can beat the house with Wong-Li, the casinos, that are brainwashed into thinking their guests will win, are called the smart money. As you can guess, people are much easier to brainwash than your average Joe and usually, the guests are paying the casinos for that opportunity.

Although, the house does have the advantage, there are quite a few ways to counteract them and gain an edge. How to win at Blackjack is not about card counting. It’s about the psychology of the game and knowing when to take a chance and when to quit. When you go to a casino, walk around and observe. Don’t walk by any means, but just observing, you will pick up a lot of techniques. One of the techniques to learn is Hand Reading.

Hand Reading is the idea that the cards your opponent sees (and how they are tilted) contribute to the probability of your chance of winning. For example, if your opponent looks at the cards in the middle of the table and makes a quick check, you can deduce (based on that behavior) that he is likely to have a good hand, especially if he is a staring guy. Keep this in mind when you play, especially in Doubles andChargers.

Another good time to check your opponent is in the pre-game warm up when the dealer is doing his thing. People play more hands, and the hands with more money are more likely to win. Why? Because the dealer looks at the flop and keeps folding over (or checks if folded) until the poker spark passes and a better hand comes along. Many beginners make the mistake of “games-playing” rather than playing hard. With some experience, you will understand that there is a pattern to the way the dealer plays. Observe and learn.

It’s a good idea to pay attention to your opponent as well. When you are at a table, it’s easy to let your eyes help you earn a win or a loss. Don’t do it though, because you will believe you are being deceptive. If you are watching, pay attention to their moves. When you are losing, you are not letting your eyes off your opponent. Suddenly they check, and as if lightning striking, you call them as if you were a fish. If you believe you can beat that hand, you will take it. Not only because it is a sign that you were beaten and the hands have little chance of beating you, but also knowing that you will get the chance to beat that hand gives you confidence. It’s worth a few bucks to take a shot at that.

Folding at the slightest sign of short-stacked, or with only a pair, is a tell-tale sign of going on “Tilt”. Stay focused, and if the situation calls for a call, be sure to do so. No one likes to lose to a cold table, arbing just for a negative EV, but if the odds net you a small win, more than half the time you will come out ahead.

If you are winning, tilt out of curiosity, or for the sake of principle, but leave it at that. Do not bring unnecessary elements to the table that will distract you from your aim (only one out of ten times will you fold something that you will remember for weeks to come, but other times you will be wrong and confused.)

Most poker pros suggest a minimum to earn a living from poker, which means that you should have at least $250,000 or extra in your bankroll to play with. Personally, I found the minimum to be way too high, even though I would have $500, 000 behind me. You need to earn a living and buy a big house to make that a reality.

However, if you only have $200,000 to spend on poker, you can still make it, but you had better pick a limit to buy in at like the $2-$4 range, or even the $0.50/$1 range. You need to increase your entry way considerably if you want to last longer, and play enough to make those Maxim wins and losses pay for their own redemption.
