Playing the Shark in Texas Holdem Poker By Re-raising


 
Gambling
If you've been playing poker for any period of time, you've probably heard the word shark. In poker, like the ocean, a shark is one of the most feared animals in it. Similarly, in a poker tournament, a shark has everyone on edge. In a live game at a casino, you might notice a famous player. He would be a shark. In an online game, where everyone uses a handle, there are still many sharks, you just might not see them so clearly. But, you can be a shark too. It doesn't happen often in a tournament and there's still a risk. But you can do it simply by re-raising at key points in a hand.

To be a shark, you should first have a good hand like a pair of aces or kings. For the first betting round you should double the blind, or the initial bet. You may attract some players who might also think they have a great hand. If so, you've just sweetened the pot.

The next round is called the turn. The turn is where everyone can see the cards they have contrasted to the community cards. At this point, you raise again. If you're opponent continues to believe in his hands, he will raise with you. It will be to your advantage to assess the flop as well. If, for example, you have a pair of aces, does the flop favor you with another ace or king, queen, jack for a potential straight. Assess whether you have an advantage at each step. You need to raise again if you have favorable conditions.

The next round in Texas Holdem poker is called the river and is another chance to assess your hand and continue the raising sequence outlined earlier. At this point, if all favors you, you will be rewarded with a massive payout at the showdown, if your opponent didn't fold previously.

If you play your poker games with this betting strategy, fellow players will fear being in a hand with you because they fear you will re-raise to get their chips. The truth be told not everyone who plays like a shark necessarily has a pair of aces but many people don't want to risk the chips. In an online poker game, you can see how many chips your fellow players have and can bet accordingly. Lower stack players tend to fold more readily. This poker tip works well especially during the later stages of a poker tournament when pots swell . You will add to your chip stack very nicely.

So, there you have a nice betting strategy to play like a shark. A key point is to assess at each step. Your pair of aces could lead to a full house or your opponent might have a four of a kind. Your goal is to win by stacking as many chips as possible this is a wonderful strategy that you will win time and time again. If you're a frequent player at a table or online, the thought of betting against you will make opponents think twice and you can get pots more often than not.
