Texas Hold Em Poker Tips – Observing Your Opponents
The more you learn about your opponents in Texas Hold em Poker, the better. The more information you have, the more fine tuned your gut feelings and reads are, the more you are able to beat the other players at the table. Tips, tricks and secrets mean nothing if you have no idea what cards you opponent has. Of course you’ll never know what they have, but you can get a pretty good idea of what type of cards they may have and that is better then nothing.
Once you have been at a table for 30 minutes or more, and you’ve been paying particular attention to your opponents and their style of play – and of course you have been doing this because you are an avid Texas Hold em Poker player that follows all my tips and tricks – you should be able to put your finger on their exact style of play and be able to make judgements about the calls they are making and why.
When you have, or think you have, determined your opponents style of play its alot easier to play better against them. I.e. If you have determined that a certain player is very tight (tight as in the traditional sense, tight with money) and they go into a pot with a large raise you know that you definitely do not want to get involved unless you have an extraordinary hand, and even then you are cautious.
Now imagine a similar situation where a loose player brings it in for a raise and you don’t have much of a hand. Because you know this person will raise with almost anything you can follow fairly safely even if you have a good hand or don’t. Then you get to see the flop, you might pickup something, end up taking the pot and increasing your kitty. If not, you knew safely it was actually worth the shot. Whereas back to the tight player, you almost know its not actually worth trying.
You need to be making moves that you believe will give you the advantage to win the pot. You cannot base this on blind guesses, you need information to make informed decisions. By observing your opponents you may be able to determine what their style of play is. You should make your decisions based on the type of opponent you are facing. Sometimes, this is one of the more difficult Texas Hold em Poker tips to actually do/implement.
