Pro Holdem strategies
Control your instincts better and focus more on rational strategies; learn that, practice a lot, and only then you’ll be ready for the next step.
Going all in
Many players make a common mistake: going all in when they know they have big chances to lose. That’s because they just want to intimidate their opponent, but that’s really something you should avoid doing. Go all in only when you are sure you’ve got a good hand.
1. Eliminate the concurrence
This might not really be a pro Holdem strategy, but it’s a good advice that may be applied in the case of all types of poker games. Don’t hurry to take all the players out at once; instead, be patient and go for small pots. Wait for them to make a mistake, wait until you remain with the best players only, and just then you’ll know what to do and what strategy to apply.
2. Raise only when you are sure you could call a re-raise
If you haven’t read out completely your opponent and you have even the slightest chance to lose that hand, then don’t raise. And if you by any chance do risk a little, then call a re-raise anyway. Don’t let the other player think he has an advantage over you, but at the same time, think twice before taking action.
3. Don’t be afraid to fold
If you just have a bad hand, fold! Don’t take it as a sign of weakness and don’t risk.
