Slowplaying Poker Strategy:1

1. When you should slow play?
When you have a low hand that it is not possible to be beat.

2. Example?
You have 456A2 and are in a multiway poker pot. The lows are not complete, some treys are dead and no one has what could be a wheel draw. As someone will have to chase perfect twice to beat you, you may want to slow play.

3. What if you have a high draw to go along with your low hand?
You may want to play tough and quick.

4. Example?
If all the treys are live in the above example, you will likely do not want to slow play your hand.

5. What if you have a high poker hand?
You must not slow play because you have a chance to win the entire pot.

6. What if you have a very big high hand that is not possible to beat and it is clear that a low has been made?
In such case, slow play would be correct.

Knowing Your Rivals strategy:2

1. When a tight player comes in with a raise, what does it actually mean?
He has a high hand or a very strong low hand.

2. What can you do in such cases?
You should throw away hands that appears to be better under normal conditions as now they are not even average.

3. What is the exception?
If you know your player very well and are really certain of what his hand is.

4. How do players particularly play?
They usually play high hands strongly and stay with them longer. That is, they will be aggressive with big pairs and careful with low hands.

5. What about a razz player?
He will play in an opposite manner.

6. What about the top eight or better players?
They will have a better blend to their games.

7. Give an example where there are many players who tend to play more one way than the other?
When the table is full, several players usually play only quality low hands that are frequently three straights.

8. How will you play when one of these players chases perfect on fourth street?
You should not give him any action.

9. What if this player now checks?
He is possibly paired.

10. What if he bets out into several players or raises?
He has caught well.

Raising Aggressively strategy:3

1. Why do you raise rarely?
To set up a play, to conceal your hand, or to knock someone out.

2. Can you raise to get a free card?
Very occasionally.

3. Why is this?
Because most rivals will raise back, in addition the cards that you get will not have the possibility, as they do in many other games, to make a big concealed hand.

4. Does raising provide you valuable information?
Not generally.

5. Why not?
If a rival has a playable hand, he usually will get on, whether you raise or not.

6. What will actually happen if you raise?
You may discover yourself calling a re-raise and hence being forced to play to the end.
