Holdem Lesson – A Quick Lesson On Betting Strategy

This is a quick Holdem lesson on betting strategy. Betting is the single biggest factor you have control over to win a game of Texas Holdem.

Holdem Lesson On Betting #1 – When

It’s important when you bet in Holdem. Bottom line is you want to be betting when you think you will win, and not betting when you don’t think you will win.

When you get dealt good cards, bet! If you have bad cards, don’t bet. Don’t bother betting after the flop if you didn’t hit the flop. You should only continue betting without hitting the flop if you are going for a draw.

Holdem Lesson On Betting #2 – Where

It’s important where you are when you bet. It’s preferable to be in later position when doing your bets. This is because you have the advantage of making your move after the others.

If you are in early position and bet you’ll often find someone comes over the top of you. You don’t want to bet in this situation unless you have great cards. On the other hand, when you are in later positions you can see how everyone else bets. If they raise too much and you don’t want to play just fold.

Holdem Lesson On Betting #3- Why

You should always have a reason to bet. There are many reasons to raise. Don’t raise without a reason.

One Reason – You have good cards
Another Reason – No one else has bet and you are trying to scare them
Advanced Reason – You want to force bad pot odds

Betting, how much you bet and when, is the biggest factor you personally have to change the outcome of the game. This quick Holdem lesson covered the main areas of betting.
