Top 3 Texas Hold'Em Tips for Online Beginners

2014-08-04 21:43 by Olsdog

Whether you play online or at a casino, poker is a game that can take many years to master.

There are several substantial differences between the two game formats. And with its realistic landscape and facial features, PKR poker is one of the best versions of the online game that you are ever going to play.

Even some of the best players in the world fall foul to common mistakes every so often. No one is perfect, and humans are not machines – errors are common even with the most distinguished poker player.

No matter what level of poker you are at, these are our 3 top tips to keep you at the top of your poker game.

Patience is a virtue

If you are a person that lacks in patience, be careful! There are several problems that come with playing a game of poker in this manner.

Impatient players can be easily predicted. They always either:

- Frequently bet with weak cards

A common rookie mistake, the player thinks that are being an awesome bluffer when really they are not playing strategically but recklessly. This is fine when playing against other newbies, but when it comes time to battle the professionals this player will suffer.

- Play too many hands

Especially if you have been sitting and playing for a long session, your concentration can start to wane and then you start to make stupid mistakes.

This is one of the worst times to play, as you cannot totally concentrate on the task at hand.

Understand your opponents

And pay attention to them! Play your game with a constant sense of poker strategy - it is all about reading people.

Although this can be more difficult online than in a realistic casino setting, online tells are a thing too. Keep your eyes out for:

- Raising on every hand (especially if they raise immediately)

- All in on a small pot

- Using auto-check

Also consider table position, because this is another important issue. Where you sit, and how close you are the dealer, can make a huge impact when it comes to what bets you place.

Don't bluff for no reason

For the players that are amateur, sometimes they incorrectly assume that the art of playing poker is inherently connected to bluffing.

Whilst bluffing may be a big part of poker strategy, the best players pick and choose the games they bluff in. They do not use that play on every hand – picking your battles wisely is an important tip that many beginners just don't seem to understand.

So whilst bluffing is an integral part of poker, especially online, save your bluffs for the priority hands. There's a time and a place for it.

Alternatively, if you are sat at the table with a serial bluffer, try and use that situation to your advantage. They can be annoying to play with, and irritatingly slow the play down – turn the tables on them and use your instinct to shift their raise into your pot.
