To raise or not to raise? Strong betting
I play PartyPoker
on 10 man tables. I've heard a lot of advice about betting strong but that tactic never seems to work for me.
I thought it was coincidence at first but this has been going on a long time now.
Whenever I'm dealt 2 good cards pre-flop and raise I almost invariably lose the hand whether I hit the flop or not.
If I hang back (maybe even passing on a very good hand until the turn card) I find I can make better informed bets, checking and then hitting hard on the turn or river.
Any comments, advice or suggestions welcome.
