Typically, the essence of most poker games which is to earn a pot by having the best hand, is more or less based on the hand you are dealt and obviously, the value of your hand compared to your opponents is very important. However, in some instances this is not the case. In this article I will provide you with an overview of how to beat a player in post-flop play when you consider yourself better than him.
Firstly, consider you are better than your opponent. Yes, you can be certain that you have better cards than him, but if you consider yourself the pre-flop position then you are playing your opponent. In every respect, you are up against him and the strength of your hand is relative to yours and your opponent’s.
In this instance your hand is the size of the pot. If you consider the pot, the cards you have and the cards your opponent has, you can see that you are a 2.2:1 underdog to him. In this instance, you are certain to lose the hand.
However, if you consider the strength of your hand, you have some options. You can bet your opponent can’t catch a card that would give him the flush draw. If you’re right, you can call for the additional betting.
Making your flush using this strategy allows for a larger than normal bet. Normally reserved for premium hands, you are betting the pot with relative strength before you ever get to see if you have the best hand.
The implementing of this strategy is quite simple. You have to maintain you’re betting the pot strong and before you know it, they will be all-in and you will have lost the hand.
This may not seem like a big deal but it’s not just a hand you can easily lose. The bigger the bet you make to Europe, the more your opponent is going to fear your hand.
Revealing a Weak Hand
Now you’ll need to consider the possibility of your hand being weak.neath your considerable bet, you may wish to secretly worry that your hand is not as strong as you’re currently thinking it is.
If you are thinking that you have a good hand, your bluff will be waiting for a stronger hand to raise or to call.
Don’t worry, we will see how this works. If you have the impression that you’re not going to be able to take down the pot then you should consider waiting for your opponents to bet to your benefit.
Why would you do this? Well, this is an excellent opportunity to trap them in and see what cards they have. You’re using this play to see where your opponents have got a hit or strong hand.
However, the way you used this play was to get a bet up at an opportune time. Be careful using this strategy, as you want to have a very strong hand. If you’re not sure, play with less than premium cards and you will have a better chance of snagging victory.
Tournament Stake Points
Tournament points are more pernicious methods to accumulate victory. The system is a lot more ruthless and complex than probably anyone would initially expect.
In tournament poker, the final game play to determine chipleaderies is called ” Doctor Who”. If you are playing poker in this version of play, your chips will be tracked by the chipleader, as you are nearing the end of the game. Your blinds are raised, and as you near the end of the game, you are given more chips, roughly until your existence in the WSOP is assured.
You are not to act in any given round, unless the blinds would have been raised more than they already were, or you have been “called out” already. Rather, you are to wait until a timely (cold), timely (warm), or Picks (the game’s way of saying “random”).
If you should happen to be “called out” when you’re 1st in the hand, and you have not improved the hand for awhile, then you should know that your best play is to fold. To continue throwing away perfectly good cards, is not smart poker. Rather, it’s the fastest way to lose everything.
In the scenario that you do happen to improve the hand, you should not be servant to any particular set of rules. Rather, you should listen to yourself and your own instincts. They were developed through years of Close Close Play practice. Learn to listen to your own thoughts, and stop repeating things that don’t make sense. Often when we wish we will hear what someone is trying to tell us, we instead we hear ourselves talking.
Mark your territory and be prepared to win chips at almost no disadvantage. When you’re ahead, fight for it.
