Mistakes when playing in flop poker
For many novice players, playing post flop is a kind of “stumbling block”. Having played two reflow cards received from the dealer in accordance with the starting hand charts, inexperienced players often face insoluble post-flop situations. Especially if the bank is growing at an alarming rate. What line of the game to choose, how to continue to play and how to prevent a blunder? Answers to these questions will help find this article about the most typical mistakes of cash players at low limits.
1. Incorrect player type determination
It is extremely important to correctly identify the type of opponents who continue to participate in the hand, deciding to bet on value or fold. For example, it does not seem like the right decision to make a bluff bet with the expectation that the “phone” will fold its hand. Conversely, in draws with tight opponents often semi-bluff rates will lead to the end of the draw from their side.
The number of players in the bank is also important: in a multipote, as a rule, combinations are played carefully, because opponents often choose the tactic of bluffing ketch, especially in limped sweats.
Tip: periodically analyze the current game of your opponents and classify them again.
2. Revaluation of own hands
Having a monster hand preflop, many novice players “fall in love” with it and cannot afford to fold it, regardless of the course of the hand and the opponents play. Even the name of one of the streets in poker turn (from the English turn – change, turning point, etc.) speaks for itself that the situation on the table has changed dramatically, and the time to overestimate the power of his own hand.
Tip: with each new card on the table, think about how strong your
regarding possible combinations of opponents.
3. Similar actions
Having learned the basics of poker, there is always the temptation not to change the winning strategy in poker and to continue to act straight. Being the pre-flop aggressor – continue to bet regardless of which cards lay on the table. Conversely, practice calling two streets in a row if the texture of the board has not changed significantly for the better when the next card comes out. For example, you can diversify your game with checks with an aggressive opponent, successfully hitting the flop.
However, it is important not to “beat” yourself and not get lost in your own difficult decisions.
