Acey-Deucey and Ten-Nine are the two best starting hands in Texas Hold’em. If you have a good idea of what your opponent has, you can attempt a check-raise. You will get a call more often than not.
You will get a call more often than not if you raise before the flop. Your opponents will call you because they need a hand. You raise after the flop to get a free card. Your opponents call you because they have a better hand.
Thus, you check-raise and win the pot when you have the best hand.
It is also possible to check-raise and lose the pot. Suppose you have Ace-King and the flop is 2-3-5. You have the best hand, so you raise. Your opponent doesn’t have the Ace, so he calls. There is no need to check-raise here because you already have the best hand pre-flop.
However, checking-raise is not advisable in any position. If you have raised pre-flop, it is probable your opponent will re-raise you on the flop. Most of the time your opponents will fold to you unless they have a very strong hand.
If you don’t have the top hand and your opponent bets, you should consider folding. Check-raising can work to your advantage sometimes, but it is not something you should do all of the time. It works best in certain situations and against certain opponents. It is not a guaranteed way to win money.
Playing check-raising is not exciting. You don’t get the feeling of speed. You raise with Ace-King and take your opponents to the cleaners. There is no tension in the game. You are just raising and betting with the best hand. They call and raise. Sometimes you will win but most likely you will lose.
To play a jayapoker, you need to be in good position. If you are in early position, you should keep in mind that your Ace-King is not the strongest hand. If you are in late position, you should consider putting in a small bet. If your Ace-King is good, you can put in a larger bet.
You want your opponents to have a hard time reading your hand. If you raise before the flop, your opponents are less likely to be able to guess what you have. After the flop, if they have played any hands, they will have a good idea about what you have.
They will keep guessing and calling along with you. That is what you want. When they are unable to put you on a hand, when they can’t put you on a hand, they will keep betting and betting. That is what you want. No matter what happens, you want them to keep betting. That is what will cost you your money and get your free chips. So if you raise pre-flop, throw in a small bet after the flop and turn.
They probably won’t put you on a hand and you will get all three community cards.
For an ace high flush or a high pair, you want to make your flush and your high pair as strong as you can. You don’t want to slow play this hand. If you slow down, a seasoned opponent will pick up on the game and bluff – a risky strategy that can cost you.
Once you make your hand, you can begin to play aggressively.
- Some people go all-in on a flush draw.
- If you make a flush and end up with the same suit on the board, you don’t want to keep betting. Stop. Stand up and remove yourself from the thrill. Many people will continue to bet, however, provided you are not pot committed.
- If you have a draw, you don’t always have to lead. follow your mentality. If you are not sure, follow your instincts.
- You can’t leave your hand at this. If you think you have the best hand, you probably do.
- You want to build the pot when you have the best hand.
- Don’t slow play for too long. Turn the next card or card, however, to your advantage.
- You can’t bluff nobody.
Playing suited cards is not for everybody. My biggest tip: suit isn’t for everybody!.
