poker strategy - MASTER BEGINNER

Sometimes players forget about important poker basics. So, at the
request of some of our subscribers, we are offering a refresher course on a
few essential poker strategies.

As you embark upon your new career in poker (okay, maybe you're just
playing for kicks), you will want to have some basic steps down before
you start getting into the fun stuff like trying to psych-out your
opponents. To sit at the table with the pro's requires deep pockets, complex
considerations, and other betting techniques. However you will most
likely be playing at the fixed-limit or lower-limit games. Your primary
goal should be to know how to master the game and to manage your money
rather than to be stressed over who's sitting next to or across from you.

In most cases, beginner players are not going to be calculating the
cards and the combination possibilities in your pocket hands. They are
worried more about the cards that they have got and likewise so should
you. Play tight and stay consistent to a strategy that will straighten
your learning curve in no time. Do not worry about beating other players
just yet. Focus on beating the odds of the game.

First let's determine which of your pocket hands are good from bad.

* Hands You Will Want To Raise
-----------------------------------------------
These hands are the "cream of the crop" giving you the signal to load
up the pot before the flop:

AA, KK, QQ, JJ, TT, AK, AQ

* Hands You Ought To Call
---------------------------------------
You should wait to see the flop before you decide to raise or to fold.
However you do not want to call more than twice since you will
blatantly reveal your position to others that you are unsure of your cards and
that you are relying merely on luck to win the game. (Remember you want
to beat the odds)

AJ, A"x" (if of same suit), KQ, KJ, QJ, JT, T9 (if of same suit), 99,
88, 77

If you get anything lower you can fold if you would like. However
always keep in mind the pot odds in relation to the chips that you have
thrown in. You want to ensure that the pot gains are larger in amount and
in your favor to return the bets that you have made - smaller bets for
larger returns. Also small $2 raises aren't going to make anybody shriek
"Mercy!" at the lower limits, but it does show you who is playing right
versus those who are playing outright foolishness at the end when
everybody reveals their cards. This strategy may not always apply when
you're playing with good players but it gives you the discipline to keep an
eye out on your money every time you sit at the table.

Learn to master the odds of winning using your opening hand. Bet
aggressively and employ pot odds when the flops turn in your favor. Lay low
or fold when you have weak hands since psychological aspects of the game
such as talking smack or "lucky" oranges are not relevant to you as a
new player. Deal with what you've got first, while the rest will depend
on what comes to you.


P.S. I hope you can use this, if not it's cool

Sherm. You've been posting these articles for some time and while I'm sure you're not trying to pass them off as your own, I rarely see any references to your sources. Whenever you use the work of someone else, you MUST at least credit the author or the publishing source.

Also, I'm not sure what the point of these posts are. They are certainly well written and worth reading, but anyone of us can find articles from Cardplayer or bluff or wherever. Unless you add some thoughts of your own to the post, it makes the un-credited cutting and pasting of entire articles all the more egegious.

Almost Insulting

Hey FD:


Im gonna start this off with the hope's that you were'nt trying to imply that I pledgerised anypart of these post, cause first an farmost I feel like you should've sent me an (PM)- it look's like you call yourself trying to bust me out:eek: . I'll get right to it, as stated at the bottom of majority of my post I put Roy Rounder as the Author around 90% of them. An the other 10% were split, around 6% whice were purposely left blank due to an link being attached or something similiar in nature- which in my opinion would've led member's to search there forum, instead of CC. An maybe 1 or 2 from me 4% which I did go into detail about my personal feeling's on how to improve one's game. I dont know what your issue is, but this is an prime example of what not to do, espeially in the eye's of the public (Non-Loyaler's). On top of it all, these post were done with the intent to increase the member's who are less Poker Savy, not the elite. Right now im tired an will stop right here, but feel free to respond if you want, just so you know- FD maybe im wrong with this reply to you man, but every post I ever did I stand behind.


P.S. lol an I almost missed this:rolleyes:

What does it matter? Would you say that if it was your work getting ripped off?

Sherm. It's simple. Credit the source! It's not that big a burden.

FD is right, credit the source whenever you copy/paste something.

Not doing so could potentially get CC into icky copyright legal crap.
