Tips and Tricks for Texas Hold’em Poker
Texas Holdem does not give you the bluffing power of other poker games. Therefore, there is no real strategy here. They can only pay attention to which hands are played or “folded”. Counting and a good memory are therefore an advantage here.
Exact calculations about the height of the hands can not be done. However, it has become clear in various games that it is advisable to increase your stakes most of the time. You should only get off if you have two unpaired hole cards in your hand when you see the first three community cards. Then you have few chances to win.
