Short Handed Texas Holdem Tips – Watch The Blinds And Antes

Are you challenged with making money playing short handed Texas Holdem? It’s because you aren’t effectively utilizing the blinds and antes to your advantage.

Wherever you play Holdem, no matter how seasoned a poker player you are or how new you are to the game, you, like me, need to understand the important of the short handed Texas Holdem blinds and antes and how they completely change the game.

It can be very difficult just to keep up when there are only a few players at the table. The blinds just come around so often they will eat you alive. Not to mention the antes. It’s hard if you don’t know what you are doing.

How would it feel if you could rake in tonnes of chips without ever having to show you cards? Think about what this would do for your stack and bankroll. Read this whole article to find out how to do it. And read the exclusive tip at the end.

Short Handed Texas Holdem Tips On The Blinds

First realize that the blinds are going to be coming around much more often than usual. You will lose a lot more money to the blinds.

This is true for your opponents too. The most likely person to survive is the person who is most successful stealing the most blinds. Always steal blinds from position when you have the chance (and try to defend your blinds)

It’s also more viable to be playing from the blinds. This is because you can play much worse hole cards at a short table and still have a half-decent chance of winning. Consider playing more often and you might get lucky on the flop.

Short Handed Texas Holdem Tips On The Antes

If you are at the end of a tournament on a short table there will usually be quite a bit of an ante eating you every single hand. This is a recipe for disaster if you are playing too tight. You must play more cards.

You’ll need to loose up. Start playing more cards but focus on playing certain cards against certain opponents you that you are in position for.

Generally you can play basically any ace. Be a little careful with very low kickers but if you hit an ace on the flop that’s a good sign you’ll get this pot.

Imagine you stack getting so huge because you were continually winning blinds and antes. You are feeling unstoppable and your options are so many. You are thinking ‘I can do anything, I can bully, I can target, and I’m going to win this!’

I know you are very aware at how lucrative these tips are for you, and that studying more tips and tricks on poker is what you must do.

So please take up experiencing the feeling of fanatical inquisitiveness, the feeling that makes you want to get in front of any piece of information you can find that will help you win Holdem – and always take action on these feelings. Because each and every time you do you are moving forward to becoming very successful. And each and every time you don’t you are moving away from being successful.
