Poker Online Tips – Folding and Raise
You don’t necessarily need to hold on to your own cards in poker online, however. What I am about to reveal to you is a psychological ploy I use often. If you have an opponent who is holding a very strong hand, you might simply need to make him think that it is not worth holding. If you can spot this moment, then you have the opportunity to simply make him fold if he is holding the ‘strongest’ hand. There are many situations where you can get this opportunity, but one of the best is when you have a poor hand.
What is the best response to the limp raise? You should wait for their flop to come up. Once they have all their cards (including the one you are bluffing with) then you can raise. In the late stage of the flop, you can raise again but don’t do it until the last few cards are revealed. In fact you shouldn’t do it at all if you are holding any good cards now.
What is the benefit of the limp raise? It forces your opponents to act on your flop. If they have a good flush, then it makes perfect sense to act on it – they will have no choice! However, this also gives you time to work on your other strong hands such as the 4-of-a-hand.
What is the drawback? The only possible disadvantage of the limp raise is that it works quite often. It is a poor substitute for good position plays. Also, calling with weak cards is often not profitable because by the time the flop comes you may be out of cards and won’t have a chance to recover.
What is the benefit of the call? The main benefit of the call is that you know you have a strong hand pre-flop. This gives you more opportunities to make big pots. The biggest disadvantage of the call is that most players will fold if they are called. They do not want to take the risk of missing a flush or better flop and lose their chances to win.
Folding and Raise
So which online poker one should you play? The answer entirely depends on which type of hands you tend to play. Most players would call rather than play the flop because it gives them a better chance to make a big pot when they have it. But remember: any type of betting can work as long as you play it right.
