So if you are part of the group of players who are dying to try the offer of this demanding game, we want to give you some strategies to make the most of each of your games.

Don’t let your position go unnoticed

It is one of the most important aspects in any Hold’em game. The more time you take to act on the hand, the more time you have to collect information and make good decisions.

The best position you can have when you are starting is the button (or dealer) position, since it allows you to know what your rivals have done, react in time, being able to imagine the play that they tend to. Without a doubt, this location is ideal.

The benefits of playing in late position will be to be able to play more hands but at the same time, you must be careful in your game.

Turn down the aggressiveness (omm)

Knowing how to master your emotions will be your plus in a game of Poker, because with a cool head you will be able to choose the ideal moment to apply an aggressive game.

So if you suspect your opponent has a good hand, don’t try to kick him out of the pot with big bets. In the long run this will encourage you to start throwing a lot of money and no one is going to fold if he thinks he has the best hand.

Let no one know your game

Avoid acting according to your game because the most experienced will know how to read your cards like an open book, because it shows both in the way you bet or by the gestures (when you play live)

A typical way in which it is usually noticed is for example: not placing bets in the right proportion, that is, you should bet avoiding the extremes, neither too large nor too small bets.

For example: it would be illogical to bet $2 into a $30 pot. If you have a decent hand you will not be able to increase the pot, while if you are bluffing, it is difficult for you to succeed with such a small bet.

If you are a beginner player, a good strategy to stay unnoticed is to place a bet between half the pot and its total value. You will pass as an experienced player and prevent others from reading your game.

Play an appropriate number of hands

If something distinguishes a novice player from an experienced player, it is undoubtedly the number of hands they usually play, beginners usually play any hand without thinking or analyzing their game strategy, that’s why a good strategy is great to avoid falling into the typical mistake beginner is to play between 10% and 30% of your hands.

For example try to play even below that percentage, in the case of cards like King-Ten they are losing cards in the long run, so you should avoid throwing these types of cards before the flop to avoid messing up.

Play at the right levels

An ideal strategy is to play according to your level of experience and budget.

Exceeding this or not complying with it can cause you a lot of stress and affect you emotionally. It will block your ability to make decisions and it will cost you to play. This will be noticed by your opponents and they will surely attack you from their comfortable game position because they will surely have a budget adequate to the level of the game.
Golden rule: If a buy-in means that you have to invest a lot of money, you are at the wrong table. When a player plays a lot of hands it is usually signaled in a loose style, which is not recommended if you are an amateur player.


Inexperienced poker players tend to play any type of hand (loose), frequently call instead of raising or folding (passive), disregard position and do not take advantage of available information. Try to put these strategies into practice and you will see results in the long term, it also shields you from the typical beginner mistakes and recognizes others who do make them so that you can take advantage of it.
