Tip of the Month – July 2013

The Flop

I have heard it said, there are no goodPokerFlop hands, only good flops.  In Texas Hold-em if you’re holding a pair of high cards – be careful.  Make sure to pay close attention to the flop and what is possible for straights and flushes. Nothing changes the value of your hand like a flop with three of the same suit or a three-card sequence.  Too often these will lead to a lower chip stack if you try to hold on too long.

You should always pay attention to the best possible hand on the cards that are up on the table, but sometimes it’s hard to let a big pair go when a sizable bet comes your way.

You sometimes have to just let it go.
