Do You Want to WIN at Poker Online
November 11th 2006 01:52
Personally, I like playing Limit Texas Hold 'Em. After utilising the training tables and feeling comfortable that you kinda know what you're doing, find a game table with not too many other players. This is because the more competition you have, the more chance there is that one of them will be able to beat you! Sometimes I'll hold back a bit before joining in to see how the others' style of play is. Are they big betters or timid? Keeping this in mind, its time to jump in.
What I have found that works for me is to be a rather aggressive player. If you've got nothing, but have decided to bluff anyway, try to get a feel for how the others are going to play it. Are they just 'limping in' with small bets or, better yet, just 'checking' you? I would then make large bets and never let up. You'd be amazed at how many people will get scared off by this tactic. But you have to be strong and not back down because if the other players get a sense of weakness, or hesitation or worse - figure out that you're a confirmed bluffer -its over. They'll smell a rat and it will be difficult to fool them again. If you do get found out, its time to high-tail it from that table and find another one to join.
