Texas Hold Em – Know When to Fold Em

As the saying goes, when you are playing Texas Hold Em, you’ve gotta know when to fold em. Read this article now to learn the easy ways to know when to fold your cards.

Playing Texas Hold Em is an art. Not only do you need to know when to punch it and go all-in, you need to know when to fold your hand to reduce losses. Sometimes, knowing when to lay down your cards is the most important thing you can do.

Further to that point, it’s not just knowing when to fold, it’s actually having the strength and diligence to actually push the cards in. Many players find themselves walking from the poker table broke muttering to themselves “I knew I should have folded.”

I’m going to outline a few easy ways that you can know when to fold you hand when you are playing Texas Hold Em. The only thing left for you to do is follow this advice and muck your cards when the time comes.

Easy Way To Know When to Fold Em #1

A very simple and easy way to know when to fold your hand is if you have paid to play, and then the flop has dropped, and you have not hit the flop in any shape or form. Fit or fold is the rule.

If you are at the flop and you did not get any sort of hand increase from the cards that dropped this is a major sign that you should be folding there and then.

Easy Way To Know When to Fold Em #2

A super-duper easy way to know when to fold you cards pre-flop is when you get dealt cards that have a very low probability of actually winning as per the pure odds of the games.

You may need to refer to a probability chart to discover these but only playing cards that have a very high chance of winning – as per the pure mathematics of the game – is a sure-fire way of winning more often.

Easy Way To Know When to Fold Em #3

Another tell-tale sign I personally use to know when to fold is if I am in a pot and my opponent goes all-in and all I am holding is a pair.

A pair is not a strong enough hand to tackle someone going all-in. After repeatedly losing my whole stack time and time again I made a new rule that I don’t call all-in’s when I only have a pair. This is when you really got to pay attention and fold when the risk is too high.
