Aug 18, 2007

Poker is a game of strategy. Even with a poor hand of cards, a good poker player nonetheless has a good probability of winning. Here are some tips:

*Hand strength. Any hand that's smaller than a pair should be folded at the soonest chance that comes. Don't delay believing that other cards will remedy the situation, because they will not.

*Show a poker face. This makes the other players suspicious of your cards. Your facial expression will let your opponents know how good or how bad your cards are. A point to recall, never project a clue to them, if you do, then make a point that if you do have bad cards, pretend that you have differently.

Do bear in mind that bluffing will not work if you are a poor player. Keeping in mind that players who overrate the strength of their hand. Besides, if a player bluffs repeatedly or on a regular basis, adept players will eventually sense their style and would now know if they're bluffing or not.

*Do not be afraid to fold. One forbidding aspect in poker is placing your bet. As to how much or how little one should bet, feel the game. As you continue, you will then be versed and know when to bet and when to fold. A rule to remember is, don't anticipate that later cards will rectify your situation if you have nothing in your hand. Be free to fold as often as needed.

*Control. Bet with wisdom. This means betting with your head. Bet only within your means. You can not win fortunes in poker, so keep inside your limits.

*No intoxicant. As alcohol makes one bolder and daring, it's wise to avoid it at poker time. You may find yourself betting more in not so good cards. Avoid alcohol particularly when the stakes are high.

It's of importance for one to give a good deal of time to the development of their own strategy. The more you play the game, the longer that you're exposed to it, you could then have your own secrets to winning the game.
