RED LIGHT DISTRICT
Okay here's a poker tip i read in a daily newspaper a few weeks back, which i will post here. I think its a very good tip for new players.
For long-term profit in your low limit Texas
Hold'em games. obey the board signals. Go when you get a green light, slow down when it turns orange, and for gods sake, stop when its showing red.
Whats is an example of a red light situation? You've raised from the button with a medium pair, Nine-Nine, and got three callers. The flop comes down Ace-Jack-Six. With two big over cards and no draw this is a red light area for you. Check-fold to any raises!
lets look at another example. You've made a continuation-probe bet with Ace-king of hearts into a dangerously coordinated Nine-Eight-seven of spades flop and face a big re-raise and a caller. Does it get any clearer? Stop betting! Run for your life!
Decisions get more difficult when you "feel" like you've got a lot of momentum--such as when you;ve got a big pocket pair or two pair. If the coordinated board and the betting are flashing red however, don't accelerate in the hope of making it through this one time. You will be penalized and you could end up bleeding all your chips away in a monster pot pile up as your little two pair is sideswiped by a mega straight or flush.
