The first decision you take when you play poker is to enter or not in the hand, so it is important to know what are the best starting hands and especially that they are not as beautiful as it may seem.
When you bleed the cards and you find yourself in my hands two cards in the group ’1 ‘can be well pleased. We have a very strong hand preflop and therefore need to raise as much as possible. Maybe you can think of with fear that your AK centers not missed the flop or on the contrary when you have two women the dealer shows a flop like AK 10 is a way of thinking wrong, when you have a good one should be aware that the opponents leave almost certainly disadvantaged and then if they want to improve their point they have to pay as much as possible. So aggression is the best weapon with this kind of cards.
With the cards in the second group it is necessary to consider some more in a particular position, we can not always raise as those in group 1.
Early Position – no one has spoken before us, so we raise. If our bid is raised further make a simple call.
Central position - in this case if no one raised before, we have to do it. If, however, there has been a raise to ask yourself a few questions, because if you find yourself having to call 2 or 3 players maybe our cards start at a disadvantage and therefore it is better to pass.
Similarly, it is important to know the people we’re playing against and analyze their raises even when we are not involved in the pot: if the speaker before us is a player very open, we can afford even a raise, on the contrary, if we are dealing with tight players, you should not have more than one call.
Finishing Position – is the best location, we can know what they think everyone else of their hands and act accordingly. We can see a map on a budget, raise to try to stay with a few opponents or carefully consider the best thing to do based on the type of player who spoke before us. In any case, in this position must be more likely to raise.
The hands of this group are even less certain. They are often the cards you need for a project and then start at a disadvantage compared to many others. It is not easy to play these cards, especially if you are the first steps in the world of Texas Hold’em. Then, we see the various situations that may arise at different location:
Early Position – when you are in early position should be played only small pairs of this group, the other may bring more problems than benefits.
Central location – if there were raises before our turn better leave, that almost certainly leave our cards back to those of others. In the event that some of the players before us “limp” in the pot, or just make a call, we can afford with prudence to call us too, but if there were only fold perhaps the best action to do is to raise to put pressure on the opponents who come after us.
Finishing Position – We are more or less in the same situation as the central location leave if there were raises, relaunch or call if there were call (though many people show hesitation, better to raise to show strength and stay with few opponents), relaunch if no first invested money to steal the blinds or stay for a maximum against 1 or 2 players.
