Okay, the word is difficult. But to be objective is to really win, what you should really try to do: smash and destroy the novice players you have to face.
This mentality seems clumsy and may even cause your friend to quit the game when the game first starts.
Let's say that when playing games with friends, you obviously have to teach them how to play and know when you can reduce the aggression in the game.
But our goal in this article today is not to maintain morality. Instead, we will only look at it from a profit perspective. Therefore, you can use these tips at your own discretion and do not hesitate to post your comments to us.
Here you will find tips for new players playing in the classic no-limit Texas Hold'em cash game, which is most likely to happen in someone's home.
Please also note that most of these techniques are not suitable for skilled players.
1) Classified opponents
At the most basic level, many poker players can be divided into two categories: those who are afraid and those who are not.
It is easy to observe on a few tables. Players who are afraid will often call and fold in the face of a raise. He rarely adds animation to the pot, and he rarely sees him at auctions.
At the same time, even if the hand is not good, players who are not threatened can make crazy raises.
You should adopt a completely different strategy for each style of player. When you fight against players who are afraid, you will keep trying to kick them out of the pot and bet aggressively. Be careful when raising your salary, because that will mean he has something.
Conversely, if you play against a player who doesn't care, you must make your strong hand profitable. You can also place big bets for a lot of money.
Oh, are you still aware that there is another good player on the table? So it's simple: avoid confrontation with him or her. Do not be silly.
2) Place a bet... a lot
For new players who are accustomed to the endless royal flush parade in TV or movies, this is a difficult concept to understand.
Most of your players will miss the flop, and there are few advanced starting hands like a pair of aces and kings.
Many novices (especially those in the "fear" category) will only put their cards on the flop if they have not managed to connect to the flop in a good way. This means you can bet on almost every flop.
Go further, you can almost even raise your hand, and other players will be surprised that you continue to play such excellent cards.
This is another technique you can use against the blues of poker: make a minimum bet on the river.
New poker players usually don't understand the concept of pot odds. If they miss a draw, it is very likely that they will fold. This means you can bet 10,000 or 1,000 for the same result. Therefore, this is a low-risk but high-reward strategy.
3) Advantages of preconceived thinking in hand classification
But just knowing the ranking of the poker hands is a huge advantage.
In fact, players who learn poker may have some misunderstandings.
The most common mistakes are:
1- Defeat the three people in a double-double (beginners think double-double is stronger because they use four cards)
2- Beat a straight flush (for some new players, a straight seems more difficult);
3 The height of the most important card in the suit (self-explanatory).
How does this help you? Well, you have a better chance to see your flush or triple flush, and sometimes you can even infer what your opponent thinks you have.
So bet accordingly.
4) End the uninterrupted call
The whole poker can be summarized into three different options: bet, call (pay) or fold.
They actually think this is a safe way to avoid injury. Once they think of the idea of reaching the river, they will always be able to choose the risk-free folding option.
If you have a pair of advanced matches, you will bet every time you place a bet. And because novices don't know how important the size of the bet is, you can even place big bets, which are between 75% and 100% of the pot.
Another trick is to use smaller denomination chips to make the bet appear smaller. Try different techniques to understand the most effective method.
5) Beware of aggression
Beginners rarely use the wrong hands to pull out nails. Not without, but very rare.
If a relatively new player bets a strong hand before the flop, then it is safe to say that they may have a good hand, or worse, they have a good hand (a pair or two faces).
So in this case, it is easy to do.
6) Use basic math to hurt opponents
Starting from setting the optimal bet size, there are many ways to extract value from the opponent using basic math. Mathematics is one of the secrets of controlling beginners.
Again, this is a concept whose importance makes poker novices not immune. They don't understand why you can occasionally bid 3 big blinds with J-T, but raising 10 times is the best recipe for disaster.
Therefore, you can place bigger bets with larger hands.
On the other hand, beginners often place small bets, and then pay, pay, pay, and pay for the charm of "family pot".
Raising in this situation is always fun, but when you call with a weak hand, you can also get incredible odds. When you try to win a big pot with a small amount of risk, 7-5 is not that bad.
Then if you have a big flop, it is likely that someone else has something on the flop. In this case, you can take him on a trip and he will not come back!
7) Pay attention to basic body language
This is the first level and the foundation of poker psychology: people tend to be more comfortable when they have a big hand.
Many times, you will find that amateur poker players have strong hands and start chatting and joking when the rest of the time is quiet.
In addition, if instead they become incredibly calm, it may also indicate bluffing.
This is obviously not 100% effective, but when it comes to people who have only brought a few poker games, this is a very reliable basic sign.
Here are some of the most obvious messages for new players:
1 Players who look at his cards again usually indicate that he is checking their clothes;
2 A player who looks directly at his chips after the flop may indicate a sign of strength (he is already considering placing a bet).
8) Pay attention to the opponent’s chips
When people are just learning to play poker, even if they win a small victory, they will quickly become very excited.
So if someone sits down for $20 and then leaves $30 at the table, it will be a huge victory for him/her.
How does this help you? Sometimes, you will notice that beginners put their chips aside as if they are leaving. Because of the lack of other terms, you might call it "gate-level stack". Obviously, they agreed to lose a certain amount, but will not lose a penny. If you find this "strategy", then ask them to contribute to the pot and raise large sums of money. Really easy money!
