re: Poker & Trying out BOOM
Thats the language, my friend.
AK is definitely a raising hand, doesnt matter whether its suited or not ( suited better of course, but its not the only factor ).
Limping shows weakness? You might be right about this, mate, but poker is about strategy. If you can make yourself look weak in your opponents eyes, but youre actually having a strong hand you will get rewarded 2x as you usually could ( Thats of course if we dont count the lack of bluffing
, should I Clear that? If your opponents seems to think youre a weak player youre better of not bluffing him. )
And a check on the flop,river,turn doesnt always mean that he has a weak hand, he could also be trapping you and you raising him falls right into it. In order to avoid these traps, you need to have information that is acquired in the last few hands, to know if he is checking with nuts or he is often bluffing? Does he raise when he hits his hand? You should also look for betting patterns and all that. You cant define his hand just by seeing him check one hand.
