What are the advantages of online poker?
Compared with "live" poker, online poker has its drawbacks and advantages:
Don,t need to dress up to go to the casino or wait for the game in your area. With online poker, you are ready to fight 24/7
Now, every poker site provides a "quick" mode that allows you to change the table immediately: after you fold your cards, you will eventually put a novice on the new table. It is impossible to do it in a casino or gambling hall.
►Play on multiple tables
Even more unlikely: clone yourself! Poker sites and apps allow players to play on multiple tables! This requires some practice, but you are likely to be in 2, 3, 5 or 10 positions at the same time!
Texas Hold'em and serious websites not only provide several variations of our favorite card games: Omaha, Stud, Razz, Badugi, High, low or high/low. It is an honor to change the fun and try new experiences.
►Different types of players
You become a blacksmith by forging, but also by meeting the different types of players you develop. Playing games online allows you to discover new game configurations that you must adapt to.
►No one sees your face and twitches
This is not good for indoor players, but it is good for other players. It is not easy to infer anything from an invisible face. This is also an opportunity for those who cannot hide their emotions, they can freely control their screaming or vocalization...
Priority order for playing poker:
In order to play well, you must know your hand. This sounds very basic, but imagine that many players are not so satisfied with the power sequence of opponent cards or even high cards or "pots". In the Texas Hold'em game (the most popular type of poker game), you need to understand that you must get the best combination of two hands and the dealer's 5 cards (boards).
If a set of 8 (8♥8♦8♣-2♥) logically defeats a set of 4 (4♥4♦4♣-Q♠), for example when two players have a pair of kings, it is the highest one wins . Unless there is the highest card on the board. E.g :
You got: Q♥6♠
Your opponent: Q♣5♠ Board of
Then your hand and opponent’s hand are the same: QQ44A
Then divide the pot into 2 (divided pots). You own 6 and the fact that he owns 5 doesn't change anything. If the last card on the board (river card) is 3, you will win. If it is 4, you will have to share again (both players can participate)
Hand levels in poker:
Now, let us look at the order of importance of combinations. Know the advantages of everyone? These are the same for all kinds of poker. For clarity, we use hyphens to separate the combination to be highlighted from the rest of the "hands".
High card K♥-6♥J♣Q♠9♦
Not a real combination. Only the highest card. Don't expect to win with the king or even the ace, even if other players bluff, they rarely pass.
A pair (pair) 3♥3♣-5♣8♦9♥
The pair consists of two cards of the same level. If you own them directly after the cards are dealt, the pair is called a "pocket pair", but its value is the same as any other...
Two pairs of 8♣8♦K♠K♣-9♥
There are only 2 pairs...yes.
Three kinds (three kinds): A♥A♦A♣-3♥
Three cards of the same level. It started to get interesting...
Straight rod: 4♣5♥6♦7♦8♠
This is a series of different cards. Please note that in Texas Hold'em, you can use Ace to make 12345 like 1 (this hand is called "wheel" or "bicycle"), but not all changes are possible...
Color (Flush): 2♠4♠8♠J♠A♠
5 cards in the same suit! If you have two cards of the same suit in your pocket, you can make interesting combinations. When we talk about color, it is not about black/red, but about spades (shovels), clubs (clubs), hearts (hearts) and diamonds (diamonds).
Full (full house): 10♥10♦10♣Q♠Q♣
One pair and one group. This is a strong combination, but in many split cards (from the table) it is tricky. We were quickly beaten by our self-change (because of the height of the winning scene). In our example, please note: 10♥10♠Q♥Q♣Q♦
Square (four types): 6♥6♦6♣6♠-9♥
4 cards of the same level.
Straight flush: 7♣8♣9♣10♣J♣
This is a set of cards of the same suit. It is the most powerful card in the game, although in some rare wildcard variants "five" is even more powerful. If two players have the same combination, the higher the winning combination, the stronger the effect of the "Royal Flush", for example: 10♥J♥Q♥K♥A♥.
The most played poker variants:
Texas Hold'em Poker
This is the most popular game: there are 2 cards in the hand and 5 cards on the board (3 + 1 + 1). The winner is the one with the best combination. In "Unlimited", the number of raises is not limited, while in "Limited", raises and bets are the same as the big blind before the flop and the flop. However, on the turn and river, raises and bets doubled. Each player can place a maximum of four bets per round: bet/raise/re-raise/upper limit (last bet allowed).
This is a stylish variant with only 4 cards in the hand instead of 2. You must make the best combination of 2 cards and 3 of 5 communities. This is another very interesting way to invert the odds. There are different variations of Omaha, so be sure to read the rules of your favorite website before you start. Or choose a virtual currency game to get started...
Closed poker or five-card draw
This is Cowboy (or Mavericks Movie) Poker: the oldest poker. This is a "closed" game with two rounds of betting. Between each round, players can trade up to 5 cards to try and have the best hand. This is a smart poker with few wins and losses. This is another exercise for your brain.
Poker 7 Card Stud
Rarely played in tournaments (but more in cash games), this variant also offers its own variant. What you need to do is that in this type of game, the first two hole cards are dealt, and we find that each player has another 4 empty cards and each player gets the seventh. This is a very special game, because the best starting hands are different, and your entire game may collapse on "Seventh Street" (seventh and last card).
Poker Jazz (7 Card Stud Low)
This is a variant of Poker 7 Card Stud. As with the latter, since there are many cards displayed, the player's decision may be different during the shot, depending on his draw and other players' draws. The player's position is again determined by the strength of the cards displayed by each player, not by the buttons. Note that in this type of game, the trump card is just a low card. Additional rules make the game difficult, especially the hand sequence that requires the entire article.
Badugi is a game where each player has 4 hole cards. The goal is to have the lowest card combination, such as A♥3♠4♣7♦. For this, everyone can make 3 transactions from 0 to 4 cards (triple draw).
10 tips for beginners
Poker is a great game to play with friends and a few slices of pizza, but when it comes to playing games online, the strategy changes. To avoid traps and develop good habits, here are our 10 suggestions for your internet poker game...
1 / Don't start the game "lightly"
You should not start a poker game like you would in "Candy Crush": you have to make sure you can finish the game. Of course, there are variants of "fast" poker on almost all sites, but if you are not familiar with them, we do not recommend that you use them. It’s also not a good idea to start the game “quickly”: poker requires concentration and spending some time in front of you.
2/ Put yourself in good shape
Before playing, ask yourself if you are in the best condition. If you are tired, stand up on your left foot, hungry, and wait in a hurry, it is not recommended to play. It is important to maintain a positive emotional state.
3/Play often, but don't play a lot
Learning poker naturally makes you want to play a lot. On the other hand, avoid large bets or sitting at tables that are too "expensive", especially at the beginning. In fact, with the bonuses given to players by various apps, some players "let go." Set a limit and never exceed it.
4/ Stop at the right time
When you lose, you should stop setting the limits for yourself, but when will you win? You must also know how to stop! Don't be overconfident, because you have already pulled out a large pot or just eliminated the chip leader with two consecutive hands. Some people also set a winning limit. If you win 10% of the initial bet, please stop or take a break!
5 / Don't be fooled by nicknames
In "real" games, you can judge, measure and try to analyze your opponent's game. However, we have almost no information about other players online. Don't try to "imitate" other participants from avatars or nicknames. Even if the nickname of "WeshWeshDu93" is stupid, "WeshWeshDu93" may be a very good player, and "PokerKingExcelsior" may (or even be sure) a big novice.
6 / Watch out for bets
By paying attention to the game and its actions, people may also forget the participation of the front corner. These blinds are added to the blinds after a certain amount of hands. When this stage begins, you will need to be more focused than ever, avoid being overly relaxed, and play wider before the flop. This is also the time when players bluff.
7 / If you are a beginner, there is no multi-meter
It makes sense, but playing on multiple tables at the same time requires some practice. When your game is not playing much, you may want to invite yourself to join an extra table. Avoid this at least in the beginning. People are very concerned about the potential benefits. Wait until you master the interface of the application to start using...
8/Analyze the player's reaction time
It is not easy to identify a player without being physically close to the player. However, there is one sign to rely on: reaction time. However, this is not a 100% standard: the player slows down because he is thinking about his hands, and because he wants to eat some snacks! Therefore, we must relativize. A player who plays fast from the beginning and spends a lot of time raising time would think...but it could also be a bluff.
9 / Pay attention to the location of other players!
Since the transaction and distribution of buttons are done automatically on the Internet, we can forget this detail and move on. However, the position of the player is very important: whether you are before or after the "main opponent", we will not bet in the same way. At the end of the turn, you will have a better understanding of the situation, because everyone will speak before you. This is an advantage. But the start of the turn is not disadvantageous: if you are not sure about your hand, you can delay it by "checking."
10 / Don't overdo it for bluffing...but don't be afraid
Bluff is a powerful weapon, but please be careful not to abuse it. If you fail once, no one else will give you more space. Do you never bluff? You are wrong because if you have played safely for an hour, then other players will be wary if you raise frantically on a particular hand...even if your win is 8 and 3. Be careful, remember that a guy can have a trump card on the flop, don’t care what you have in hand...
10 tips for advanced players:
1/ Play less, but play actively
Even a very good player can't play all the roles. The risk is that even with good luck, the stack will drop significantly. You must develop a reliable strategy before the flop to improve the result. Don't be impatient and only play cards that are worth playing. The best way is to play strong and/or aggressively. Playing all hands aggressively, including the more speculative 7♠6♠ or 5♥5 ones, can mask the power of real hands.
2/ The art of semi-bluffing
If you really want to be proficient in poker, you have to bravado. But false bluffs are one of the fastest ways to lose the stack. So, how do you control the frequency of bluffing? The most effective way to swindle is to let the cards you control determine whether you want to swindle. This means you must bluff with hands that still have potential. You must consider all probabilities. Try 8♠9♥ or 2♣6 bluffing may cause you to fall on your feet (suit or maybe flush)
3/ Quickly pop up a strong hand to expand the pot
In most cases, it is best to bet on your own strong hands to expand the pot. This does not mean that you should always bet/raise after the flop. However, when you are not sure where you are going, all you have to do is place a bet (if you are not the most active player before the flop, please raise). Yes, it is disappointing when the opponent folds, but it can be worse...
4/ Defend yourself for the blind
The big blind is a special position because you already have some money invested in the pot. This is why when you face a raise while sitting in the big blind, you have a better chance of calling than other players – consider this as an advantage. Since you are the last person to act before the flop, you can call with more hands than sitting in other positions. This does not mean that you should raise with bad hands like 8♠4♦, but in most cases, restricted hands like A♣9♦ and Q♥7♥ can be played.
5 / go when not sure
The difference between a good player and a bad player is that the former can pass. This is not easy because we are naturally curious and we want to win. When we fold, we give up the chance to win the pot, and there is no chance to satisfy our curiosity by discovering what our opponent has. (After the invalid fraud after) calling too frequently and losing poker in bad situations is the second fastest way. When you are not sure whether to call or fold by betting or raising, do not fold in a hurry.
6 / Bluffing when the opponent is weak
Players do not "betting" with cards that can require multiple combinations, which means that when they bet, their hands are usually relatively weak. When your opponent shows a lot of weakness in the heads-up pot (for example, checking the flop and turn), you can profit from it through an aggressive bluffing strategy. Not only do you need to be accustomed to playing the usual "semi-bluff bl" games, but you can also try full bluffs with very bad players.
7 / Only play when you want to play
Whether you are a hobby or a professional player, poker should be an interesting experience. You will perform better when your headrest is resting, so it makes sense to play this mentally intensive game only when you "feel it." If you feel frustrated, tired or angry, you should stop the session immediately. This way you will most likely save a lot of money. Poker will still be here tomorrow. a suggestion ? Before playing the game, imagine that you lose your entire chip in the first hand. If you don't mind this idea, then you can prepare for a long game!
8 / Control your position relative to the button
One of the most important factors to consider when selecting the hand to be played is its position relative to the button. You can win more money from farther away, so try to play more cards from far away. Start playing very tightly from the highest position, expand the game range by approaching the buttons, and try to steal as many chips as possible. By far, the most profitable position in poker is the button, because sitting there allows you to play more hands than in other positions. It takes some time to get used to it...
9 / Learning probability:
You need to know the odds of winning. This is not to react like a robot, nor to calculate that you have a 16.33% chance of owning such cards on the river, but to weigh the advantages and disadvantages of this move. It can help you make decisions based on mathematics rather than emotions. You will have to define the level by calculating "outs"; an out is an upcoming card that will help you best. Suppose you have 4♥5♣6♠7♥: You can use 3 and 8 to make a straight. There are 4 3s and 4 8s in the game, so there are 8 outs in this hand. On the other hand, if you have A♣A♠A♦, then you only have one square. . . If you want to know the approximate value, just multiply the output by 2, which is a good indication of the possibility of improving your hand. Opportunity for the next round. Or multiply by 4 (if you are looking for opportunities to improve your hand from the flop to the river). Let’s take an example: if you start with an 8-out straight on the flop, you can count on an 8% improvement on the turn (8×2), and on the flop you have 32% opportunity. turn. River (8×4). These numbers are not precise, but they are a good approximation. You can also use software such as Holdem Manager or Poker Tracker.
10 / think about the opponent's hand
Focusing on the game is a good thing, but you must also consider what other people have at hand. Consider where they are, the hands they might have, and what kind of games might develop from there. Player actions after the flop can provide you with clues about their hand, just as their bets, raises and bets can indicate their strengths or weaknesses. The time it takes them to make a decision can also provide us with more information.
