Five tips For Improving Your Low-Limit Game

Aug 17, 2007
Poker is a game of chance. Your winning the game depends very heavily on the hand you have, but there is a certain amount of strategy that you can incorporate into your game that can, help you overcome that hand when used correctly. The following are five tips that will help you when playing Low-Limit poker.

Low-Limit poker is used when playing primarily for lower stakes, as the betting limit is fixed lower than other types of Limit poker. The tips that follow are used primarily for online poker, but can be used when playing a live game as well.

In Low-Limit poker the strategy is much different from that of the higher stakes games seen on television or played in the casinos because the game is played differently, you must incorporate a different strategy when playing.

First, find a way to pay close attention. Stay alert at all times so that you are fully aware of what your opponents are doing, as well as yourself. Because you are playing a Low-Limit game, the players will not play like they would if the stakes were higher, since there isn't nearly as much at stake, but it is still crucial to know what is going on.

Next, manage your Low-Limit Table Bankroll. Know how much you want to walk away with, and when you have lost to that amount, leave the game. This will keep you from continually betting and possibly losing even more money than you started out with in the first place.

Next, use Sit-N-Go's to get your No-Limit fix. If you like playing Low-Limit poker, play at the Sit-N-Go's instead of the lower stakes NL cash tables. Sit-N-Go's are there to get No-Limit enjoyment, and the loss is limited to the buy-in.

Next tip, maintain discipline. Find another table if you feel you are unable or do not want to continue playing at the one you are on. Discipline is the key to not losing too much money, and developing it early will help you even when playing larger stakes games.

Last, build your stack playing Low-Limit. If the action seems to slow for you at ten person tables, move to six handed ones. There is more action there and here you can continue to play disciplined, aggressive poker.

Online poker is a good way to practice your Low-Limit strategies. Here you do not have to play for money, and will have an opportunity to improve your game and learn more about strategy and technique. Once you have developed your strategy and are more comfortable with your game, you might try moving to a casino where the game is live. You may even decide to move to larger stakes games.
