Tips And Tricks

You must always try and add tricks and let’s say craft to your game in order to stand a better chance of not getting read by the other poker players. If you always check when your hand isn’t great but not so bad as to fold and always bet or raise when you have a very good hand then you are playing it straightforward all the way. And this can turn against you, because other more attentive poker players can figure out your game pattern and they might use this knowledge to control your game.

When you see the flop and you are the last or among the last players to make an action, then you can raise the bet with a drawing hand. It is very possible that your opponents check when the turn comes and if you don’t get the cards you need or expect; check. However, if the turn card improves your hand, bet again. The whole situation you have created will end up saving you money as you can check at the turn if your hand doesn’t become better and it will make you win a lot of money if your hand gets better. If however you are re-raised by another player it will cost you more money than predicted but it would be worth it because you just gained information  about the other player’s hand.

When you find yourself in early position and have a hand that requires a bet or a raise, it is better to check hoping that one of the opponents that has to act after you bets and you can raise after that when it is your turn to play. This way you get a  much bigger pot. Let’s say you have in your hand A,K, if the flop comes and you see an A, K and 7, check if you are the first to act. The next two players might check also, but one of the players in late position will make a bet. When it is your turn to play, raise the bet that has been placed. This will cause all the other players to either fold or call your bet. But the statistics say you will get more folds than calls. If you check and then raise when you are in an early position you control the game. However, if some of the other players call, this should give you an insight on their hands and it is still helpful.
