Poker Articles - Play Poker Like Pro - 3 Quick Tips:
Online poker has exploded in popularity. More and more players are winning big money in tournaments and other money games. In order to win, you have to play like a pro. The best players are educated on all aspects of poker. These three tips should help your poker game improve vastly.
1. Don’t be afraid to commit to the
pot. When you have a very good hand, you should always bet a fairly
large amount. You can try to draw players into the hand with slowly
increasing bets. If you make a large bet, and a player re-raises
you, don’t be afraid to call. Some players attempt to scare others
off by re-raising. If you know that you have a solid hand, then
don’t be scared off by a re-raise. Committing to the pot is not bad
when you know you have a solid hand. Someone who folds a good hand
because of a raise is generally just throwing his or her money away.
The best players play with a significant amount of confidence.
Confidence is shown when you stay in a hand that you know you have a
good chance at winning. In the end, poker is still a game of chance.
The players who are willing to take chances (when they have a
reasonably solid hand, of course) have the most success.
2. Avoid under betting the pot. This
goes along the same lines as “commit to the pot." If you simply bet
a small amount after every turn, then more players will be inclined
to stay in. This increases the chances of someone hitting cards and
beating you. The ideal betting scenario for someone with a good hand
is to bet just enough to keep one person in. Or, if it is one on
one, bet high enough to scare people off. This again relates to
confidence. The best players are confident in their hands, so they
don’t worry about betting too much. Tentative players may last
longer than players who bet a lot in the beginning, but the winners
are those who know exactly when to be tentative and when to be
3. Know what to do with a draw. If you
have a draw (you need one more card to have an awesome hand), you
have to be very careful. For example, needing only one more card in
order to have a flush is very nice, but many players get over
excited. Players sometimes bet extremely high in these instances and
then end up losing the hand. It is important to know what to do in
case of a draw. You should either check or bet small. The only time
you should bet high is if you think that the other player does not
It is difficult to win consistently in online poker. There is always new competition, and lady luck will not always be on your side. However, the pros always play smart poker, and make good decisions. These tips should help you make better decisions and have greater success with your poker game.
