Texas Hold Em Poker Tips http://mytexasholdempokertips.com I Reveal My Texas Hold Em Poker Tips So You Can Win More Poker! Tue, 13 Apr 2010 04:45:29 +0000 http://wordpress.org/?v=2.9.2 en hourly 1 Texas Hold Em Poker Tips – Versing An Aggressive Poker Player http://mytexasholdempokertips.com/texas-hold-em-poker-tips/texas-hold-em-poker-tips-versing-an-aggressive-poker-player/ http://mytexasholdempokertips.com/texas-hold-em-poker-tips/texas-hold-em-poker-tips-versing-an-aggressive-poker-player/#comments Sat, 10 Apr 2010 03:20:29 +0000 Texas Hold Em Poker http://mytexasholdempokertips.com/?p=51 The Texas Hold Em Poker tips contained below will help you identify if you are playing an aggressive Texas Hold Em Poker player.

In Texas Hold Em Poker, the way an opponents is playing tips you off to their style of play. Style of play is described as the method in which the individual plays when they do in fact play at a pot. This is characterized, for the most part, by the way they bet. Betting is generally the biggest factor of player control that can have an outcome on the game for any given hand.

The style of play specifically refers to how the person bets. To determine their style of play you need to carefully observe their betting patterns. Here’s some questions to start you going…

- Does this person bet alot of hands?

- When this person comes into a pot, do they more often raise then call?

- Do they ever reraise the pot?

- Have you noticed they reraise to isolate themselves against another particular opponent?

- Do they often raise and reraise when they show down at the river?

- Have you noticed they tend to raise when playing middle suit connectors and mid or small pairs?

- Do they raise large amounts from their pocket cards?

I have worded these questions specially so that the more you answer yes that means the person is aggressive and the more you answer no the person is passive.

There are a couple of flavours to aggressive players. Tight aggressive players only ever play great cards like pocket pairs or cards above Jacks. When they bet they raise and reraise. Generally they raise alot because they have such good cards however sometimes they will raise just normally but intend on reraising on the flop and reraising the turn, more and more as time goes on. These players are nasty to play against and you can lose alot of chips very quickly if you aren’t careful. New Texas Hold Em Poker players usually have difficulty against this type of opponent.

Loose aggressive means the person plays almost any hand and also is constantly raising and reraising. This type of player is even harder to play against because you don’t have the benefit of ‘knowing’ he has good cards. This player could have anything and is still raising you. If you don’t ever play against this type of opponent he will constantly eat everyone’s blinds, grow his stack and become even more powerful. This player will often raise when he has worse cards to scare everyone off, and raise less on good cards to trick people into dualing him.

Texas Hold Em Poker Tips – Are You Against A Tight Opponent http://mytexasholdempokertips.com/texas-hold-em-poker-tips/texas-hold-em-poker-tips-are-you-against-a-tight-opponent/ http://mytexasholdempokertips.com/texas-hold-em-poker-tips/texas-hold-em-poker-tips-are-you-against-a-tight-opponent/#comments Fri, 09 Apr 2010 02:17:54 +0000 Texas Hold Em Poker http://mytexasholdempokertips.com/?p=49 This Texas Hold Em Poker tips goal is to teach you how to know if your playing Texas Hold Em Poker against a tight player.

When you are playing Texas Hold Em Poker, tips and tricks on what to do against a tight player can be helpful as many players prefer to play tight. Tight players will only play with great cards. They only ever enter the pot when they have premium pockets or a high pair. Loose players will play less then premium cards, like middle suited connectors or smaller pairs, and they will even play complete dirt cards like 7-3 or 6-2.

Many new poker players find tight players quite difficult to beat because that player only ever enters the pot with great cards. How can I beat him when he always has premium cards and if he doesn’t he just folds? They ask themselves. Their internal dialogue is damaging – “Wow he just bet 10 times the big blind and he is such a tight player, I bet you he has pocket aces”. Being scared and feeling helpless against these players are some negative psychological reactions.

As you probably know, a players type, whether they are tight or loose, is further coloured by their style of play. This gives birth to a couple more variations of a tight player. Remember a players style of play refers to how they bet? Aggressive players bet alot when they do, where as passive players usually just check or call someone else’s raise.

Tight aggressive means that the person only ever plays good hands, and when they do they bet lots. This is usually the opponent new Texas Hold Em Poker players have trouble versing.

Tight passive means the person only ever plays great hands and when they do, just calls in whoever else raises the pot. Players generally have a better time up against this type of opponent because he never raises, only calls or checks. If you don’t have a good hand just don’t raise much and you shouldn’t have an issue.

So next time your at the poker table, watch the other players and see if you can determine if you are versing a tight Texas Hold Em Poker player. A tight player will only ever play great hands. You can generally tell by the amount of pots the player is entering – if they are folding alot from the deal that tips you off they are tight. Also check to see the hands they lay down when they win. If they often come out with great pocket pairs or two premium cards they are definitely tight. Search around for some more Texas Hold Em Poker tips on how to deal with them and you’ll be on your way.

Texas Hold Em Poker Tips – Observing Your Opponents http://mytexasholdempokertips.com/texas-hold-em-poker-tips/texas-hold-em-poker-tips-observing-your-opponents/ http://mytexasholdempokertips.com/texas-hold-em-poker-tips/texas-hold-em-poker-tips-observing-your-opponents/#comments Thu, 08 Apr 2010 01:16:54 +0000 Texas Hold Em Poker http://mytexasholdempokertips.com/?p=46 Texas Hold Em Poker tips on observing your opponents is some of the best information you can get to increase your Texas Hold Em Poker game.

The more you learn about your opponents in Texas Hold Em Poker, the better. The more information you have, the more fine tuned your gut feelings and reads are, the more you are able to beat the other players at the table. Tips, tricks and secrets mean nothing if you have no idea what cards you opponent has. Of course you’ll never know what they have, but you can get a pretty good idea of what type of cards they may have and that is better then nothing.

Once you have been at a table for 30 minutes or more, and you’ve been paying particular attention to your opponents and their style of play – and of course you have been doing this because you are an avid Texas Hold Em Poker player that follows all my tips and tricks – you should be able to put your finger on their exact style of play and be able to make judgements about the calls they are making and why.

When you have, or think you have, determined your opponents style of play its alot easier to play better against them. I.e. If you have determined that a certain player is very tight (tight as in the traditional sense, tight with money) and they go into a pot with a large raise you know that you definitely do not want to get involved unless you have an extraordinary hand, and even then you are cautious.

Now imagine a similar situation where a loose player brings it in for a raise and you don’t have much of a hand. Because you know this person will raise with almost anything you can follow fairly safely even if you have a good hand or don’t. Then you get to see the flop, you might pickup something, end up taking the pot and increasing your kitty. If not, you knew safely it was actually worth the shot. Whereas back to the tight player, you almost know its not actually worth trying.

You need to be making moves that you believe will give you the advantage to win the pot. You cannot base this on blind guesses, you need information to make informed decisions. By observing your opponents you may be able to determine what their style of play is. You should make your decisions based on the type of opponent you are facing. Sometimes, this is one of the more difficult Texas Hold Em Poker tips to actually do/implement.

Texas Hold Em Poker Tips – Knowing Other Players Hands http://mytexasholdempokertips.com/texas-hold-em-poker-tips/texas-hold-em-poker-tips-knowing-other-players-hands/ http://mytexasholdempokertips.com/texas-hold-em-poker-tips/texas-hold-em-poker-tips-knowing-other-players-hands/#comments Wed, 07 Apr 2010 04:30:06 +0000 Texas Hold Em Poker http://mytexasholdempokertips.com/?p=44 This Texas Hold Em Poker tips about knowing what hands the other players have because it tips you off to how you should play your Texas Hold Em Poker game for that round.

Sensing weakness and putting your competition on a specific hand is a downright imperative skill to have if you ever want to be a winner at No Limit Texas Hold Em Poker. If you can do this you can essentially win with any cards. It doesn’t matter what cards you get dealt, how strong your pocket is or not, when you can correctly guess what your opponent has you can bet effectively enough to force them into a corner.

With enough practice at the guessing game – continually guessing and checking, guessing and checking – you will be able to more and more accurately know what hands the other players have. You will eventually get it right more times then you think. “He has a pair of queens” or “I think he is drawing for a straight” are examples of what your internal chatter should sound like. Finally, when the cards are face up at the end of the game, you backtrack and check what your thoughts where and what infact happened. You can clearly see how close you came to getting it right.

Take an example of some internal dialogue. Say you get dealt an A-5 and your up against another opponent. In fact he got dealt an A-7, but you dont know this. You raise a little to get to the flop and he calls and follows. The flop comes, A-4-3. Your opponent raises! Put yourself in this position. Your opponent has just lead out on the flop when an ace drops. “What does he have?” is what you should be thinking. You may draw this conclusion: if the opponent has an ace he has a weak ace, because he only checked after the inital raise before the flop. If he had an A-K or A-Q he would have most definitely reraised. We can extend that: would the opponent lead out with aces up or maybe trips? If the opponent had of flopped a hand like that would he have raised? Probably not he might have checked to lure your into a trap. Is the player agressive or tight, is this his normal betting strategy or not? “What do I think he has and whats the best betting strategy to negate this?”. Maybe the solution would be if you really think he has a weak aces, come over the top of him heavy. He surely won’t have the guts to risk his stack. This is just an example of internal dialogue that should be running through your mind at games, ok?

Being able to correctly put another player on a hand and know what cards he has is what seperates the winners from the losers. Its what makes the professionals the pros and the ameteurs going home broke at the end of the day. When you continually practice the guessing game, and get better at it, your overall Texas Hold Em Poker game will dramatically improve and you will become a better poker player. The tide then tips to your favour. When you become a better player you will win more pots, and as you win pots you will become a better player, and the cycle will continue; this is this Texas Hold Em Poker tips goal.

Texas Hold Em Poker Tips – You Raise Early But Miss The Flop http://mytexasholdempokertips.com/texas-hold-em-poker-tips/texas-hold-em-poker-tips-you-raise-early-but-miss-the-flop/ http://mytexasholdempokertips.com/texas-hold-em-poker-tips/texas-hold-em-poker-tips-you-raise-early-but-miss-the-flop/#comments Tue, 06 Apr 2010 04:16:29 +0000 Texas Hold Em Poker http://mytexasholdempokertips.com/?p=39 New Texas Hold Em Poker player’s don’t know what to do when they hit a great pocket, raise, then completely miss the flop. Read this Texas Hold Em Poker tips advice on how to deal with this.

Many times you’ll pick up a nice A-K or K-Q in your pocket. Its a nice hand, one that you should raise with. So you up the pot four times the big blind because your playing good poker. Sure, some fold and some call, you may even get the agressive opponent who reraises and you call that too. But then the flop comes out 10-8-6… You don’t know what to do. Your lost, a little bit afraid. You’ve already put so much in the pot and don’t want to lose that but you actually have nothing. You know you shouldn’t continue past the flop if you have nothing but still. Maybe you can pretend a bluff? Yeah! But you’re afraid to lose any money. Usually, 9 times out of 10, an average player will call in this situation. They want to stay in, but don’t want to raise.

Now your opponent immediately assumes you don’t have a big pair because you’ve just called. So what does he do? No matter what he has, he raises, pretending – or worse, actually having – a high pair because he knows that you, the original raiser, now calling, probably didn’t hit on the flop. And even though he may only have Q-J for example, pocket cards actually worse then yours, he will take the pot away from you if you check to him. A similiar scenario would be when the less then desireable flop comes out, the opponent plays before you. You haven’t called like in the previous scenario, the opponent just raises flat out. So now you have to make the decision, do you call him and continue?

In either of these scenarios, that is, you get nice pocket cards, raise before the flop, then the flop comes out and is useless to you, the solution is to keep your cool and not get stubborn. Stick to the game plan, if you’ve got nothing at the flop, fold. Like I’ve said in my previous tips, if your hand isn’t nice and tight by the flop then fold em. You’ve gotta know when to hold em and know when to fold em. You should just simply fold and give up the battle. You need to wait for a better opportunity to attack. Don’t go into a gun fight holding a knife.

So in Texas Hold Em Poker, when you raise early but miss the flop by a long shot, don’t keep putting more chips in. Have the integrity with yourself to fold you cards and wait for a better hand when you do hit the flop and have a nice hand to work with. You cant afford to be losing chips to weak hands because you just wanted to stay in because you had already put so many chips in already. Take this Texas Hold Em Poker tips advice and don’t fall for this trap, this is the trap ameteurs fall into.

Texas Hold Em Poker Tips – How To Know Everyone’s Cards http://mytexasholdempokertips.com/texas-hold-em-poker-tips/texas-hold-em-poker-tips-how-to-know-what-cards-your-opponent-has/ http://mytexasholdempokertips.com/texas-hold-em-poker-tips/texas-hold-em-poker-tips-how-to-know-what-cards-your-opponent-has/#comments Mon, 05 Apr 2010 04:08:26 +0000 Texas Hold Em Poker http://mytexasholdempokertips.com/?p=34 As far as Texas Hold Em Poker tips go, how to know what cards your opponent has got to be one of the most useful ones for help you win more money.

When you continue to guess what cards your opponent has, and then get more refined and accurate with your guesses and they start actually being quite close to correct, your Texas Hold Em Poker game skyrockets to new levels. Obviously, the object is to try to find out, as close as you possible can, what hands your opponents have and you do this by constant information gathering, guessing, refining, gathering and guessing some more. You should be doing this at all times when you are playing poker. At all times! I cannot stress this enough.

Once you have been watching how and when every player is betting and gather enough information about them, actions and patterns will start to become more clear. You will realise why one certain guy just limped in before the flop, or why a certain women is continually checking but then raising in other situations. You will be able to better sort what type of opponent you are versing and what type of cards they have. Basics first, but when you get more advanced you will be able to extrapolate why a certain person bet in a certain way with one hand, and a different way with a very similar hand, and possibly what they were trying to achieve.

The whole process starts by carefully and meticulously watching your opponents and every move they make. The first thing to really concentrate on is how the opponent is betting before the flop. After watching this, you continue to narrow down hands from here on in. If they just check on the flop, try to figure out why they missed the flop (as in didn’t get a good hand on the flop), or if they actually missed the flop or not. Do you think they are playing a drawing hand? Could they be trying to play a second or bottom pair? Maybe they have a monster and are slow-playing, using the old check-raise strategy? Asking questions like this and continually checking the results (if the opponent goes to the river and lays down there cards see what they had and if it matched your guess) will enable you to know what cards your opponent has in later deals.

An opponents betting patterns, whether they call or raise, tips you off to which cards they could have. Your experience, as in the information you have gathered, the guesses and confirmed guesses you’ve previously made, helps you narrow down what they could have into what they should, or you think, they have. By following this Texas Hold Em Poker tips advice every hand, I’ll say every hand just one more time, you will significantly increase your Texas Hold Em Poker game and will be able to know what cards your opponent has.

Texas Hold Em Poker Tips – Always Bet The Correct Amount http://mytexasholdempokertips.com/texas-hold-em-poker-tips/texas-hold-em-poker-tips-always-bet-the-correct-amount/ http://mytexasholdempokertips.com/texas-hold-em-poker-tips/texas-hold-em-poker-tips-always-bet-the-correct-amount/#comments Sun, 04 Apr 2010 04:05:14 +0000 Texas Hold Em Poker http://mytexasholdempokertips.com/?p=31 The Texas Hold Em Poker tips going to explain that you need to bet the correct amount when your playing Texas Hold Em Poker because if you don’t it tips off to your opponents what cards you have.

When playing Texas Hold Em Poker, deciding how much to bet and when is an extremely important decision you have to make pretty much every hand. Even if you are deciding not to bet, zero is still an amount, so in fact this decision impacts the game aswell. The other players see this and another ‘He folded’ gets added to their tally on info about you.

Betting is an art. Because there is so much variety in the amount you can bet in No Limit Texas Hold Em Poker every different amount sends just a slightly different message. Three times the blind is different to five times, and much different to ten times. The sliding scale of impact continues, seemingly exponentially. Combine this with comparing your bet to your stack, and then against every different players stack, and then against the most obvious opponents stack for that hand, and betting starts to get almost too complex to grasp.

But you can grasp betting and learn to how effectively bet, just read a few tips and you’ll be on your way. Heres one: if you the first one to enter the pot, you are better off to either raise or just fold. Do not enter the pot by calling. This is a rule of thumb ok and it works pretty well, especially if you are not a poker professional. So if your new to poker, and your the first one to enter the pot, raise or fold, its that simple. When you do this, raise about the same amount every time. It doesn’t matter if your packing pocket aces, or bluffing a 7-2, raise between three and five times the big blind.

This strategy works because the bet is big enough to force your opponent to have some sort of fairly good hand in order to atleast call and play with you. When you are consistent – remember I said raise about the same amount every time – you opponent cannot put you on a hand. They don’t know if you playing a premium pair or just middle suit connectors. Maintaining this mysteriousness in Texas Hold Em Poker is vital if you are going to survive. The amounts you bet when you raise, or if call or fold, will provide everyone with tell tale signs of you, your style, your type, your cards, what you have, everything. Remember, whenever your are the first player in a pot, follow the general guideline and bet three to give times the big blind or just fold em. Always bet the correct amount. Thats the idea this Texas Hold Em Poker tips getting at.

Texas Hold Em Poker Tips – Feeling The Game When Betting http://mytexasholdempokertips.com/texas-hold-em-poker-tips/texas-hold-em-poker-tips-feeling-the-game-when-betting/ http://mytexasholdempokertips.com/texas-hold-em-poker-tips/texas-hold-em-poker-tips-feeling-the-game-when-betting/#comments Sat, 03 Apr 2010 04:28:26 +0000 Texas Hold Em Poker http://mytexasholdempokertips.com/?p=41 Read these Texas Hold Em Poker tips on how important it is to get a feeling for the for game when you’re betting and you will be able to win games more easily.

To be able to bet properly – the right amount at the right time – you need to have a good feeling for the game. When playing Texas Hold Em Poker, making a crucial bet tips the game in your favour. You need to get the most things working for you as possible if you are ever going to make it in the ruthless game of No Limit Texas Hold Em Poker. Your starting hands, bets, style of play and grasp of the other players style of play and possible hands all need to line up together in order for you to make huge leaps and bounds and grow your stack into a monster.

At certain times in the game, the last thing you want is for your opponent to call your bet. Think of an extreme example, like your completely bluffing 7-3 because you’ve lulled your opponent into thinking you are tight and only play premium cards. In this instance you absolutely do not want your opponent to call your bet so you need to bet a large enough amount that he won’t possibly consider it. The aim is to force them to fold and you seriously want to, need to, achieve this sometimes.

In a different situation say, you definitely do want your opponents to bet. Maybe you’ve been playing very loose and raising almost every pot. Then you hit those great pocket kings, so you really want your opponents to call you. You’re sure you’ve got the best hand and you are keen to increase the size of the pot that is most surely yours. You want to get the most value out of your hand as you possible can. You’ll need to bet an amount of money that, atleast you think, is modest enough that most of the other players will call you. Then you can earn a little extra on that hand.

Betting decisions are complex and there is no end to having to deal with these when playing No Limit Texas Hold Em Poker. The crux of the game, that you can bet up to no limit, means that practice and experience in betting are crucial. Any amount you bet likely tips the game in another direction and this is what makes it so crucial to the overall game. Like anything, you need to get a good amount of experience in order to be able to best determine the amount you should bet in a given situation. An easy way to do this is read more Texas Hold Em Poker tips.

Texas Hold Em Poker Tips – Putting Your Opponent On A Hand http://mytexasholdempokertips.com/texas-hold-em-poker-tips/texas-hold-em-poker-tips-putting-your-opponent-on-a-hand/ http://mytexasholdempokertips.com/texas-hold-em-poker-tips/texas-hold-em-poker-tips-putting-your-opponent-on-a-hand/#comments Sat, 03 Apr 2010 04:04:39 +0000 Texas Hold Em Poker http://mytexasholdempokertips.com/?p=29 This Texas Hold Em Poker tips goal is to help you be able to put you opponent on a specific hand, so you can play Texas Hold Em Poker more effectively.

Imagine, just imagine, if you could play a game of No Limit Texas Hold Em Poker but your opponents cards had to be face up. How easy would it be? You would know exactly when to raise to steal his pot, when not to bother calling his raise because he has such a good hand, whether it was worth going heads up or playing a pot down to the river. If he’s not allowed to see your cards but you could see his, that would make the game extremely unfair and you would basically be able to win everytime. Of course this is never going to really happen, but you can in fact use strategies and methods to determine what cards your opponent actually has.

The most important thing to do if you want to know what cards your opponent is to pay close attention to the game and gather as much information as possible. The more information you have on the other players the more effectively you will be able to put them on a hand. To develop this skill, you need to constantly be trying to figure out what cards your opponent has and then check that guess against what cards he really did have when he lays them down. You are going to get alot of incomplete information and this makes the process quite difficult, but if you hang in there and learn how to perform this neat trick effectively and consistently you will exponentially increase your Texas Hold Em Poker game.

You should be playing this guessing game 100% of the time you are at a poker table. No matter how insignificant you think a hand is, no matter how much is in the pot or what the stakes are. Even if you have folded, actually especially if you have folded, you should be paying close attention to all the other players and guessing what hands they have, trying to figure it out based on all the information you have. Then finally at the end of the pot you’ll see the cards and you will be able to cross-reference that back to what you thought and why. As time goes on and your guesses are confirmed or denied, you’ll know how accurate you are and this will enable you to make even better judgements in the future.

You should try to get your hands on more Texas Hold Em Poker tips on how to more effectively guess your opponents hands. Anything that will enable you to more effectively perform this act will help you win more Texas Hold em Poker games and you will become a better player.

Texas Hold Em Poker Tips – How To Play The Worst Hands http://mytexasholdempokertips.com/texas-hold-em-poker-tips/texas-hold-em-poker-tips-how-to-play-the-worst-hands/ http://mytexasholdempokertips.com/texas-hold-em-poker-tips/texas-hold-em-poker-tips-how-to-play-the-worst-hands/#comments Fri, 02 Apr 2010 03:57:39 +0000 Texas Hold Em Poker http://mytexasholdempokertips.com/?p=27 Sometimes you have to play the worst hands in order to win Texas Hold Em Poker. Read my Texas Hold Em Poker tips below to understand how.

Raising big with very plain hands is sometimes a very effective method of varying your style of play to maintain the randomness and constant confusion that is imperative to playing Texas Hold Em Poker effectively. This is a favourite method of many top players and is one of the most common tips around. However, sometimes this strategy can be misguided if you are a very new beginner, and sticking to a more reliable strategy may be more appropriate if you haven’t exactly fine-tuned your game yet.

When you raise before the flop with a completely shocking hand, Like a 7-2 or 9-3, you main plan for doing this is to scare everyone off so you can steal the pot. You will get the small and big blind, and if you are lucky a bit of a small raise from someone infront of you, and these small gains can do wonders for slowly but surely building your stack. When you see pros do this, please understand they aren’t raising on the strength of the hole cards – there is no strength, in fact there is less then strength they are a burden – they are raising in an attempt to make a quick steal of the pot. If someone did call their raise, they are also confiding in pure luck to hit something on the flop. Because, for example, the person that called them would have great cards like A-K or K-Q or a very high pair, but the bluffer will have something like 6-2 or 7-3, so they are hoping the flop is mostly low cards so they pull maybe some pairs or a chance at a low straight. Get the picture?

This has added value because say for example you have a 6-3, quite poor cards, and you raise. You opponent calls and the flop comes out 7-5-4. For someone with A-A, K-K, or other premium cards this is a shocking flop. Because your opponent probably thinks you have good cards like this – why else would you raise so much? – they have almost no chance of putting you on the straight. This makes for a nasty suprise for them and enables you to make a grab at an even bigger portion of their stack.

Remember though, you don’t always make those lucky flops. The crux of the strategy is to scare people into folding early on so you can steal the small and big blinds, and maybe some ante’s if thats on the table. If this Texas Hold Em Poker tips played properly, its not played all the time. Do not do it all the time or it won’t work properly. Vary your style of play to keep your opponents guessing, thats the best way to win Texas Hold Em Poker.
