ART OF RAISING


Adopting an aggressive approach is ideal for any budding live or online player of poker in India – which means you will have to either raise or re-raise frequently. Here are some good reasons to raise,

•  To take control of a hand

•  To thin out the playing field

•  To raise for value

•  To get opponents to fold


By raising you are announcing to the cash game table that you have a dominant hand. Even if you miss out on the flop, you can carry on with your aggressive demeanor by placing continuation bets until you eventually win the pot.


In most situations you do not want to play a raised pot against more than two players. In spite having a big starting hand it can still be vulnerable. The fewer people in the hand means having fewer people fighting for the same pot, which means having fewer decision to make.


Perhaps the most obvious reason why players bet is to bring in more money. Players generally want to make the most of the value of their hand, and proceed to bet. However, there are several considerations to evaluate. Determine what bet size at the

card game would be the best for these considerations.


Try to bet an amount that an opponent can’t call. Each bet tells its own story. Going all-in might be the biggest bet you can make, but if it looks like you want a fold then you might get a call from someone who sees right through your bluff. Be smart when you play poker in India.
