In the previous content, I mentioned the importance of aggressively typing cards. Although the strategy of check-call is very popular, unless you have enough strength, you can't win the final hand. After summarizing and analyzing, it is only in this way that you just keep waiting. It is a relatively bad strategy to get your own strength and get the opponent's payment. This strategy will make it easy for everyone to underestimate the value of betting and raising with a draw. At the same time, it also overestimates the number of chips that can be won when their own cards become stronger. So it often happens that when your opponent sees a draw with a flush or a straight finish, he won't put the chips into the pot with a card that is worse than you. What followed was the ruin of your entire strategic plan. Having said that, I recently encountered a situation at the poker table. At first I felt that I had the opportunity to use the bluff to immediately take the pot, but I still deliberately played a draw. In the next article, I will tell you how to put this strategy to the limit in some specific hands.
At the time, I played a deep-counter $5/$10 No-Limit Hold'em game, and most players on the table had at least $3000 or so. The player in the first position is the first to raise to $50, and I am holding 9♦7♦ to act after him. In this hand, I don't recommend that you use a flush cross-stack to play in the front position to call the opponent's big bet. However, the reason I called was because I found three information points that are profitable:
1. First, the first raiser often makes a big raise before the flop, and almost does not consider the position. Therefore, in the face of this savage player, I don't have to worry about hitting the card that makes it difficult for me to deal with. This is what I think when I come across a tighter raiser.
2. Then the other players on the table are very passive, especially when they face 3bet. So, in most cases, I think that other players won't embarrass me when I play on the flop.
3. Finally, I think that the opponent's fierce play will make him make mistakes when hitting the big flop. Although I understand that holding a weak card and investing in a poor position in a poor position is generally a loss-making style. Fortunately, only the blind player called once before the flop, which means I have an absolute positional advantage after the flop.
The flop: 4♣5♥6♠. The blinds checked and the first raiser bet $100 in the $200 pot.
At this time, I judged by his bet amount and the timing of the bet that his card would not be bigger than a pair. So I am sure that I will have a chance to win this pot when I raise. After all, I only have 8 clear-up cards (although 7 or 9 can also improve my hand, but holding a pocket pair usually can't win a showdown), which means that if I don't choose to bluff, then this game Most will lose.
In fact, if my draw is slightly different, such as A 7, I will choose to raise. Although this hand has a chance to complete the straight, I don't think that when the board is 4-5-6-8 or 3-4-5-6, someone will put more chips into the pot with a bad hand. So you only have to get a bigger card than your opponent to win the big pot. At the same time, you have to pray that your opponent will not fight against you with good cards. It seems that the straight draw cannot do this.
What's special about my 9♦7♦ is that if I hit 8 on the turn, I can hit the nut and the other players can easily get the second nut. Separate from here: When the raiser in the front position is below the one-on-one situation, there is very little chance that the opponent will take this card against me. But when there are two other people in the pot, the chances of someone having 7 are much higher. Because the pot is already big in front of other players. So when I think I really cool them, their chips are hard to avoid losing, so I think it's worth trying.
So I chose to call and I was happy that the two blind players called. This strongly implies that someone in the middle holds 7. Things that make me happy are repeated one after another, when the dealer will issue 8 turns on the turn. I got the nut card successfully. Everyone checks my turn and I bet $300 on the $600 pot. This number seems small because the remaining effective stack is more than $25,000, and I want to light up all of their chips, but I suspect that some of the blind players will only use a 7 to raise, or use some more A bad card calls to gain value. In fact, in the case that there are so many chips left, it is quite a big mistake to use only one 7 check-raise. When the opponent falls into the trap set by himself, that is the scene I am most happy to see.
After the small blind player saw my action, he raised to $1000. The other two players chose to fold, and I was all down, and she called happily. The river card is a waste card, I won more than 300 big blinds. The opponent voluntarily showed J♥7♥, which means she has a flush draw, her check-raise is in defense, because she actually has a stronger one besides a 7-inch. The card can win the pot.
It is undeniable that I was very fortunate in this game. I successfully hit the nut on the turn and then someone paid me. Everyone needs to know that whenever you win the pot, you have some luck in it. A good poker concept is that technology and luck coexist. When the cards follow your wishes, you can use this luck to earn more value for yourself.
The topic is discussed here, I believe everyone has their feelings, but I still feel that the technique of passively listening to cards is too much luck. At the same time, when your own brand is strengthened, the return of the pot is not proportional. However, in some specific hands, when your draw is perfectly concealed and your stack is relatively healthy, it is not appropriate to use this style of play against opponents who overestimate their hands. Good choice.
