Advanced Poker Strategy

Do you consider yourself to be an advanced poker player? If so, there is a good chance that you already have a poker strategy in place that you rely on when you play.

Improve Your Skills by Killing the Luck

I started playing Texas Hold’em almost a four and a half years ago now.  Like many new players my approach to the game back then was much different than my approach now.  If you are familiar with the “5 levels of thinking” of Texas Hold’em, I used to play with only the first one.  I certainly never considered things like my position at the table, the blinds, my stack, the pot odds, etc.  My plan was to look at my 2 pocket cards and try to guess what I could hit on the flop, the turn, and on the river....

Master Caribbean Stud Poker

When I am asked what my favorite poker variant on the planet is, I usually like to think a bit before giving an answer.

It is impossible for me to choose one particular poker variant and claim it is my absolute favorite. Instead, I would have to...

Short-Handed Play

It’s extremely common to play in a multi tabled or large single table tournament and then once the game becomes short-handed (meaning there are less players) there is always a player that instantly becomes a maniac. This person will raise, bet, re-raise, call all-in and often take complete control of the game. Although this player is often raising on poor cards such as a K5 off suit they often seem to ending up winning time and time again. The reason behind this is purely aggression, the key to winning a short handed game is being able to play a solid...

A downswing in poker is bad. Very bad. Soul crunching, teeth grindingly bad.
