Starting Hands In Poker Part 1 – Standard Hand Values

The honeymoon, they say, is the perfect time to enjoy the company of your loved one, bask in his/her love and relive the beauty of falling in love again – before the hassles of married life starts. After the wedding preparations, this is one of the truly memorable experiences of your wedding. Now, there’s just the two of you, together, in some secluded, private place without any distractions, any interruptions – just love and love and love, and of course, more time for each other.

After placing the ante bet, the player receives three cards face up, while the dealer receives two cards face down. Then the player decides whether or not he wants to raise the original bet, by the same amount as the original bet, or continue without a raise to the next round of play.

For the players who have extraordinary hand starters, and when the person has a higher pair, like J-J or may be higher, it would be better not to vacillate raising the card before it flops.

Sometimes these players continue this pattern of all-in until they have a sizable chip lead or until someone stops them. Do not let this type of player frustrate you. It is easiest (and most profitable) to wait until you have a huge hand, call their all-in and then punish them.

Daftar Poker sandbaggers. Before “sandbagging” became a synonym in golfing circles for “scum-sucking dirtbag,” Word-Detective says that poker adopted the word. Around the Texas Hold’em tables, “sandbagger” refers to someone who lulls other players “into a false sense of security” by waiting until late in the game to raise the stakes on a good hand. Thus sandbag now means “to underperform any task in order to gain some advantage,” says Word-Detective.

Then you have three of a kind. You need three cards of the same denomination, like three queens. Following is a straight. This is when the denominations fall in sequence for all 5 cards. You could have a two through six, or eight through queen. The highest straight is a ten through Ace. A straight can be beat with a flush. A flush is all five cards being the same suit. Like all hearts, or all diamonds. Again, the higher the denomination the better chance you have at winning.

Unlike the All-in bluff, and most other bluffs, the Post Oak Bluff differs in that it does not involve a large number of chips. For this, you make a small bet, representing the value bet of a strong hand, rather than the scared bet of a weak one. This is especially effective if you have been making the value bet a common part of your winning hands.
