Tip and Info to Play Poker

When a poker player evaluates the cards he needs to win and adds to it the fundamental chances, he is in a better position to determine whether he should remain in the poker game or quit.

To begin with, he should not forget the number of cards there are in a pack. Simple, isn’t it? Then he should count the number of exposed cards. Let us say a person is playing Hold’em, a player can view the two cards he is holding and the cards in the flop, the fourth and fifth streets.

When he is playing stud poker games he can view his pocket card(s) and the up cards of all the players. For instance, when playing texas hold’em, if a player could view six cards (the two he is holding and the four in the window), the he should minus that figure from fifty-two and get forty-six, which is the total figure of the cards that remain unseen.

Then it is time to evaluate his chances of having a hand that could win, the cards that he requires to make it so and the number of chances he has of getting these. Very often the chances of quitting will be more than the chances a player would have of winning.

For example, when playing Hold’em if a player has 6♦, 7 ♦ and 5 ♦, 8 ♦, 6 ♠ are displayed in the flop. For starters, a player knows he has a four-flush and a pair 6s. To determine what one needs to win, he should evaluate which hand would be better.

In this instance where the community cards displayed are 5¨, 6ª, 8¨, an opponent might have a straight flush, thus only if he is very lucky and another pair of 6s appear in the community, the pair isn’t worth much. Although luck is on his side as he only needs one diamond.
