I am not going to go over the rules of how to play Texas hold em. Odds are you know the basics and are now ready to enhance your game.

So, I will have straight into the Strategy of Texas hold em.

Basically the game begins with everyone being dealt 2 cards (hole cards). Out of the 169 doable starting arms there are only specific hands you really should wager on with which I will list below.

Strong Hands

AA, King-King, Queen-Queen, Jack-Jack and AK (appropriate).

These are the strongest feasible hole cards in texas hold em. These generate you favorite straight away and must be played incredibly aggressively and usually raised with no matter what position that you are in. If others want to keep in you should make it pricey for them, this will also drive out any weaker arms that might have otherwise stayed in and got a lucky flop to produce a superior hand. With Ace-Ace and King-King you must at all times re-raise if there is a elevate prior to you.

Good Arms

Ten-Ten, AQ (suited), Ace-Jack (suited), KQ (suited) and AK

These are beneficial arms, an ace plus a great card gives you the likelihood of a good pair with an awesome kicker. Also suited great cards give you the likelihood of good pairs and flushes with an awesome kicker. These palms should also be played aggressively and raised with from middle to late positions if no other raises have been made. If there has already been a increase it’s generally very best to just call. Similarly if you might be in an early position it truly is usually ideal to merely call or maybe just make a little boost with these hands for fear of becoming re-raised by someone having a robust hand.


A10 (suited), King-Jack (appropriate), Queen-Jack (suited), Jack-Ten (suited), AQ and Nine-Nine. A2 (appropriate), Ace-Three (appropriate), A4 (suited) and A5 (suited

These are medium strength hands with very good possibilities but you may have to take into account how other players are betting. If one or two gamblers wager aggressively then odds are they have a much better hand than you and you should fold.

In the event you do stay in for the flop then you may have to choose whether to remain in for the turn card. You’ve got to use typical sense here. If you have produced a hand then you may well want to remain in except think about what the other gamblers could possibly have. Could they generate a greater flush or straight than you? Is there an ace in the flop giving someone a potential pair of aces that beats your high pair?

Any pair, 8 or lower, is worth wagering if it does not cost you a lot far more than the big blind to see the flop or about five percent of your stack.

The reason becoming that the flop will produce your pocket pair into three of a type about 12 % of the time. So a low pair is suddenly a fairly sturdy hand if the flop turns your pair into a set. As always you have to consider if someone can beat it depending on what is showing.

You might have to determine what to do based on how they bet, again if they bet aggressively they may well have a much better hand than you. They could be bluffing but as a rule its very best to be cautious and wait for the killer hand to beat them with.
