Pot Limit & No limit poker : Play poker

(5) All you need to raise is A dry king, three-flush or three-straight if you are playing in a game where the low poker card brings it in, and if you are the only person left.

(6) It is understood that buried aces or kings Are better slowplayed in limit poker. The reason for this is with such holdings, you tend to win small pots or lose large ones. With only a limit bet, they are impossible to release if the pot is large. You can save your hand in pot-limit poker. Also, if things go wrong, you can mcks. Therefore, the more sensible thing is fast action with big pairs.

(7) Again, the advice in limit is to play the hell out of your low trips. For slowplaying such a hand, now the rewards Are far greater.

  I can fast-play my monsters As well because i take ferocious Action even with quite mediocre holdings. As poker players have various styles, there lies one of the joys of poker. What is right for one poker player might be totally wrong for another poker player.


(1) As rapidly as possible, muck junk.

(2) For a hand like 10♠ 9♠, the potential overlay is huge. Your rival poker player can become afraid by any card a through 6 plus the 5♠, 4♠, 3♠, 2♠. Always be careful of an aggressive poker pleyer who checks such a hand. He might be thinking to check-raise or slowplay a monster.

(3) a four-flush is At least as good as hand as A pair of aces. The flussh-draw makes it only 48% of the time. However, sometimes the poker player makes a winning two pair anyway.

  Honestly speaking, I want to prevent an all-in coup where i hold hand such as (A 4) A 9 against a four flush. This is giving the rival poker player even money. Therefore, i am more likely to bet fourth street than check-raise. The pot is often big enough for the rival poker player to reraise all-in if my rival poker player bets And I raise.

  I can call if have bet and he raises. If he hits A blank, then i can set him in and have the best of it or if he improves, pass. I might pass my dry aces if he hits An open pair. A four-flush and a pair is probably his weakest hand which is A favorite against my hand. Obviously, two pair or trips Are favorite against a four-flush. However, it is not that big deal.

(4) It is good for you to learn how to play tight when you play all poker variations. Afterwards, you can learn to play loose. However, the option to fall back is Always there.

  You are drawing to lose and the rival poker player has potentially a full house if your rival poker player has An open pair against four-flush. Four to an up-and-down streight is A losing tight situation if a poker player is Already in the pot with what looks like a four-flush.

  With an extremely tragic result, you might both improve. But one of the main advantages of a straight is that poker players Are much less ready to believe in them than flushes. Therefore, when it does blossom, you are more likely to be paid off.

(5) It is sometimes worth calling with a hand such as (Q J) 10 8 or (Q J) 10 9 against a good poker player, facing an open pair of 8’s. The reason for this is because you are more likely to get paid off. The weak poker player would not understand the anomalous nature of your hand. Since, a 9 isn’t so obvious A middle-pin, the above middle-pin straight is A better proposition than Q 8 10 J.

(6) Although, aces might be a slight favorite against one flush-draw, one important principle of pot limit hold’em poker is that they are a big dog against two flush-draws. For example, you bet with (A 6) A 4, one poker player raises with (? ?) 9♣ 7♣ and the next poker player raises with  (? ?) Q♦ 5♦, it is correct to pass.

  Overall, they both miss only 25% of the time. It might be good idea to check a high pair when you are looking down the barrels of the guns of two poker players each with an open two-flush. However, i prefer to bet, and when the going gets rough, then run for the hills.

  Even of fifth street, this principle of the made hand being an underdog to two poker players each on a draw can apply. Poker player a has (J 10) 9 8 7. Poker player B has (A♥ A♠) 6♠ 2♠ A♣. Poker player c has (Q Q) Q 5 4 in an all-in coup.

  Poker player B has the best of it. He wins 41.3%, poker player a 33.5% and poker player c wins 25.2%. The three flushes help poker player B. The entire scenario is very different from a pokur game such as omahs. Here, the other poker player’s chances Are hardly affected by the chances of one poker player improving.

  If the pot stands At $100, poker playr a bets $90 all-in, and poker player B calls All-in, then poker player c is correct to call, even though the poker players might turn their cards over and show him that he is beaten in two spots. He wins 25.2% of the time, and for his $90 wager, will win $280.

(7) An open-end straight-flush draw such as (7♣ 6♣) 9♣ 8♣ is a hand worth mentioning in poker mythology. With 15 outs on each of three cards, this is so likely to improve that it scores 48.5% against trips on fourth street. However, don’t jump off your seats; it is only a 2500-1 against being dealt this hand.

  The last time it happened to me I was up against aces with only one club and no 4s or 10s showing or passed in a nine handed game. All the money went in. I was A proud possessor of  (7♣ 6♣) 9♣ 8♣ 4♠ 3♦ 2♠, a 9-high at the end of the game. This is going down in style!
