Without a lot of fluff I am gonna get right to the meat of this article. What I want to do is present the thesis that making a living at home, online playing an hour or so of Texas Holdem a day is very possible and actually, with the correct information, not hard at all. To take it a step further, By playing a few hours a day, it is very possible with the proper information.
That is BlackHat information, down and dirty, no good scoundrel information, a person can very possibly, ooh wait just a minute! Forget the possibly! Most any person can and will make thousands a day. After all, whats the soul of gambling all about.
Do you know what Blackhat means? There’s a lot of definitions, but the one i’ll use for this article is action taken at the very edge that gives you the superior edge.
The following are tips you can use immediately to start winning online. It is my advice that you first take these tips and in grain them in your heart, playing on the play money tables before you put a dime down at Poker Star or any other online sight, for real money play. When you win more, I mean much more, like 60 to 70% of the hands you play, then and only then is it time to try out the cash tables.
1. As you probably noticed in the last paragraph, I said when you win more than you lose on the hands that you play? here’s the insight. DON’T PLAY EVERY HAND, ONLY THE ONES YOU HAVE THE BEST ODDS OF WINNING. You may throw down ten hands in a row, don’t play ’em if you aint got ’em. (The better odds cards or groups).
2. Only play with 7 TO 9 PLAYERS AT THE TABLE YOU PICK TO PLAY ON. Fewer will get the better groupings of cards.
3. DON’T PLAY THE BIG OR SMALL BLINDS. The odds are against you, you don’t know what cards your gonna be dealt.
4. When you are dealt your 2 cards ONLY PLAY THE CARDS THAT HAVE THE HIGHEST ODDS OF WINNING. Here are some but not all of the possibilities: A PAIR, this can lead to three or four of a kind. A full house, Two or three pair including the cards from the dealer. 2 OF THE SAME SUIT. This can lead to a flush, a straight flush or a royal flush. PLAY FACE CARDS, including the 10 thru the ace. Up to this point the odds are in your favor, or you would win more than lose, but with the face cards you can do much better or much worse, so how do you improve the odds?
You wait for the next three cards laid down, you must determine if you got a pair, a flush, a straight, 2 pair, and a full house. If you have any of these, your odds are very high for you to win the pot with 7 to 9 players at your table, ONE POT CAN BE UP TO $15,000 DOLLARS, OR MORE, PLAY MONEY AT FIRST…
If you have the higher hands, such as a straight, a flush, a royal flush, etc. let the bidding go around the table once, very carefully watching if anyone bets or raises instead of bids, this person may very well be your adversary. On the second round of bidding, don’t bid; don’t call, but raise a good but moderate amount and take note of who folds and who doesn’t. When the last two cards fall they usually will confirm your winning position, if so keep rising till your opposition folds or loses.
5. MAKE A GOAL FOR WHAT YOU WILL WIN OR LOSE BEFORE YOU SIT DOWN AT THE COMPUTER. Write it down, don’t vary from these amounts. What I’ve shown you above will cause you to win far more than you lose and easily make you a thousand dollars a day. You must realize what I’ve shown you above increases your odds of winning and limit the gamble of the game.
Sounds simple doesn’t it, well, once you get this take very few chances play disciplined into your psyche, you will win nearly everyday. But you must not vary. You may have to throw in 15 0r 20 hands before you have the edge. Do it! You must do it without wavering or you’re just pissing in the wind. don’t let your daily limit get over a grand for your fist year.
What I’ve shown you above is pretty tame to what the true blackhat tactics are that you can further learn, follow me if you dare and find out what like crap thru a goose? means and Taken candy from a baby?
