Winning Poker Strategy

May 3, 2008
A poker players strategy has to incorporate many different aspects of his or her game. A way to look at each players strategy is to look at it in terms of a plan, policy, approach, or a tactic. The reason for coming with and using a strategy is to make sure that you are making as much money as you possibly can be and losing as little as you possibly can be. There isn't one strategy that will work for everyone. Each player is different and these differences require a different approach to the game.

Knowing that your hand is the weakest and having the smarts to fold that hand is one of the most important things that a new player can learn. Without being able to do this new players will lose their bank roll and even more importantly lose and fun that they had in poker, and this player is not likely to keep playing poker in the future. By being able to employ this strategy new players will see a longer life in their bank roll and in the playing careers.

On the flip side of the previous point we have the bluff. When you think that you have the weakest hand but you don't think that your opponent has a very strong hand you sometimes may way to push a large bet at your opponent to get him to fold the better hand. This approach must be used cautiously as if you bluff to much your opponents will catch on and eventually you will not be able to bluff anyone at your table anymore.

To become a world class poker player you must learn to employ every trick and tool in your poker arsenal. This can take years for someone to completely master. Sometimes even the best hand can lose when not played properly and no amount of analyzing and contemplating will be able to fix it once the improper play has been played. That is why it is so important to come up with a long term poker strategy that suits your game and will make you a winner over the long haul.

None of this will happen over night. To become great at anything it takes much time, and practice. Don't get discouraged if you hit a bad losing streak. It happens, just make sure that you are sticking to proven winning strategies and don't let any other players get inside your head. Most of all play as much as possible, and stay within the limits of your bank roll. After all poker is gambling and I know of gambling game where you are assured to win money.
