Basic Poker Strategies

Once you have started a game you need to adopt some tricks that can be useful to win at Poker . In this paragraph we have decided to list some tips and tricks that we can very well fit into the basic Poker tricks category. They are general techniques that can be used in all variations: from Omaha to Cash , from multi-table tournaments to Heads Up . 

Studying the behavior of opponents

Whether it’s a poker game with friends or one of the many and very crowded online Texas Hold’em tournaments , we think that among the first poker tricks there is the study of your opponent, especially when you have the opportunity to see him live, with a lot of attention. If he is still a beginner he will probably go to externalize his mood according to the cards. This will make it much easier to read his moves and beat him.

Take care of the style of play

It is important to adopt your own style of play, improve it over time and make it your winning weapon. The advice we would like to give to newcomers to the game is to start with a rather conservative style , avoiding to imitate the “deeds” of the champions seen on television. Play your cards at the right time and avoid looking for plays that you are not yet able to do. In this way the first results will come. Then, when you become familiar with Texas Hold’em , you can start experimenting with more aggressive playing styles.

The bluffing strategy

The term bluff indicates the attitude of a player tending to mislead an opponent by not making him understand what his playing situation is. This is, in all likelihood, the most used and known trick to win at online or online poker. But be careful not to abuse it because it is undoubtedly one of the most used poker strategies at all tables.

Playing unpredictably

It is also among our advice to adopt an unpredictable style in the eyes of your opponent. Always keeping the same line for the whole game would be counterproductive as in the long run our opponents could easily guess our moves. 

Fold

If during your game of online texas hold em poker you have not exceptional cards in your hand, fold, without any kind of delay. Holding bad cards could penalize you and consequently take you away from winning. Always making it to the river, wasting a pile of chips, is not part of winning poker strategies.

Patience is a strategy

This advice applies to both real and live poker as well as online poker. Don’t get caught up in the frenzy, wait for the right moment to get into the game. Considering when to enter will give you a huge advantage.

Black interlocking cards

Blackjack cards are American cards with 52 hands per deck. Compared to a French card game used for example in Skat, Black Jack cards differ in number, print and size .

While only 32 cards are used in the French card game, the American 52 uses the card values ​​2, 3, 4, 5 four times each – in the heart suits, spades, clubs and diamonds.

The so-called court cards (Facecards) are called also differently. The jack in the American card game is the jack. The “Queen” is the “Queen” and the “King” is the “King”.

Blackjack cards also have a different size than French playing cards. French cards are a bit longer and not as wide.

  • French Cards: Length: 83mm / Width: 51mm
  • Black Jack Cards: Length 80mm / Width: 55mm
