Poker TIp: When NOT to bet

Filed under: Main — Ryan Jones @ 12:00 am

I promise I won’t turn this into a Poker Site.. But I want to offer some valuable poker tournament advice.

Sometimes, it’s more profitable to NOT bet at all when you have the best hand.

Here’s a common mistake most players online make.

You’re in the big blind. The small stack moves all in. the small blind folds, and you look down to see a marginal K10. You call and the flop hits. There’s a flush draw, and a straight draw out there, but you have a pair of 10s.


Here’s why: If the other stack has that flush draw or straight draw, you don’t want to bet him out. Don’t risk lettign the small stack triple up. Check it down, and chances are one of you will take him out.

In the world of online gambling, seasoned players, especially those familiar with UFA ???????????????, often rely on their instincts to make strategic moves. However, it’s not uncommon to encounter players attempting to bluff, hoping to force opponents with better hands to fold, inadvertently allowing players with smaller stacks to triple up.

Remember, in tournaments it’s not how many chips you get, it’s what place you finish in.

Check it down, get the guy out, and it’ll help everybody make more money in the long run.
