Without sounding too arrogant, I am quite pleased with what I have written in the Poker Tutorials section of Laytheodds during the past few months. Therefore, I am happy to share my knowledge with you.
Some of the poker tutorials include:
- The newest article, How to Win at Heads Up Cash No Limit
- Basic Fixed Limit starting Hands
- Basic No Limit Starting Hands
- How to Play AK (also known as Anna Kournikova - looks pretty bad rarely wins) and how to play small pocket pairs in Cash NL
- When and how to bluff correctly
Furthermore, If you are tired of paying rake make sure to join Pay No Rake Poker Site.
In a less serious note, I have compiled my top 8 Poker Jokes. Trust me, these are hilarious.
If you happen to be new to poker it is likely that you will start off by playing fixed limit. The reason for this could be that the mere concept of losing your entire stack in No Limit is just too daunting or it could be that spending hours playing a tournament and not win anything as too frustrating.
Bluffing is a strategy used to deceive or fool other player’s into thinking you have a better hand when you really don’t. In order to make the bluff work, you need the other players to think you actually have a better hand by betting or raising.
For many people, including me, playing AK is tricky. However, if you are not showing a profit with it, then something is definitely wrong. If you play it correctly, you should be able to make a lot of money since it is such a powerful hand.
One of the biggest mistakes that beginner players make (other than bad bankroll management) is to over-value starting hands. Even though a hand like KJs under the gun (first to act pre flop) make look pretty, there are other factors that matter just as much, if not more, than your cards, with one of the key factors being your position at the table in relation to the blinds/button.
The reasons why people play real money poker are as many as the combinations of flops and frankly, the only thing that matters is that week in and week out the bankroll is still intact by exercising good bankroll management.
