Error: play too many hands

This is the mistake most commonly seen. Many players want action, do not want to be the one who puts away, they think something could still take etc. This too loose game is a very typical beginner’s error.

Poker is all about you go to wait patiently for the few low moments and then be aggressive. If you have previously fired already but now with various bad or marginal hands be powder, missing the chips if and only if they would do any good.

In poker you go to a lot of chances and bad hands like. , or , or … have very low profit opportunities. If you understand that, you can still make better use of its limited supply of chips in the few profitable situations. Compare that with worthless penny stock shares, of which you know very well that no longer rising in value with very high probability … Why should you therefore to invest their money?

At the tournament or SNG Poker, it is important that at the beginning when the blinds are still low, plays very tight. On the one fly in this early stage already the first player out, what brings you even closer to the money. On the other hand, you can only gain so much, as you yourself still left with a good hand from the opponent forever … You can not win more chips as you use.

Another reason is that the pots in the higher blind levels are more profitable. Whether you win a pot of 60 with blinds at 10/20 or not is not very important. More importantly, you do not have then when it comes to big pots a neat stack.

Another reason is that their starting stack of eg. 1,500 chips during a tournament or SNG’s is worth less and less. Here an example. In a 9-SitnGo we say come the first 3 in the money for $ 10 entry fee. Is usually divided 50% for the first 30% for the second and 20% for the 3rd place. With 9 players their stack is at the beginning so worth $ 10. Now, if you make it into the final 3 and all 3 have an average stack of 4500 … For the first place, you get $ 45 .. Right now you have a third of the chips … These 4500 chips thus correspond to a value of $ 15 . Thus, 1,500 at this time only $ 5 worth, so only half.

In other words, especially in the early stages they should be VERY patient and play only the best starting hands. Because as you know now, their chips are worth in the early phase the most.

Another good reason is the push or fold phase. If you only have about 10 BB or less for disposal, you can not raise or call, you simply remains a Allin with all chips or fold it. Because if you just call or even raise small, then you already have such a large portion of their chips in the pot, that after a fold (an increase of the opponent) would be mathematically incorrect. This is called at poker and “Committing to” or profess to hold the pot.

Time assuming you have 1000 chips left with blinds at 75/150 … If you now increase to 300, then lie with the blinds already at least 525 chips in the middle (if other than the two blinds yet another player has limped maybe more ) and you only have 700 left. The ratio of the amount already set to the amount you can win is called pot odds. If now is one of the opponent, say 500, then total 1,025 chips already in the pot and you just have to risk 700 to win them if necessary. This is quite a good relationship … good pot odds. Also, you would hardly bring to fold with your remaining few chips someone. So that you now only not fall into this fatrakte situation, you should either fold before the flop … or put allin.

In the early-blind phase applies: Be patient! (Until the boredom) = Right!

During the early-blind phases you can use the time you anzuschaun your opponents, so you may be able to better estimate later. Who is rather tight, who loose more? Who raises only with very strong hands? If it’s later it arrives, you can meet better decisions.
