No-Limit Texas Hold’em Poker:

Introduction

When playing No-Limit Texas Hold’em you should clearly understand its difference from Limit Texas Hold’em. First of all it is in hand and position value. In No-Limit position you have is of fundamental importance as it greatly impacts on your stack. In good position trapping someone in No-Limit can bring you the entire stack of your unlucky opponent. Compare this with a few extra bets you win in Limit. As far as the hand values are conserned, you should know that in No-Limit KQ, AQ, AK and other big connectors have a decreased value. With such hands you have better chances to win small pots and lose big ones. All pairs in No-Limit also increase in value due to your ability while hitting a set to double through your opponents. Big pairs like KK an AA have an increment in value as well since you have a chance gain the whole stack by trapping someone.

While playing No-Limit Texas Hold’em, it is crucial to pay attention and evaluate the money your opponents and you have on the table. Here are some examples demonstrating dramatic effect of of stack size variation on the game:

While playing No-Limit Texas Hold’em, it is crucial to pay attention and evaluate the money your opponents and you have on the table. Here are some examples demonstrating dramatic effect of of stack size variation on the game:

  1. You are in a big blind with a JTs and $500 on the table. Your opponent with only $25 moves all-in from first position (usually called “sitting under the gun”). The blinds are $2-$4 and all other players prefered to fold. Being the most probable underdog in this particular situation your only way is to fold rather then to run a risk of $21 hoping to win $25. On the other hand, in case your opponent has $500, your $21 risk is well-taken, as you can win $500! A profitable play, isn’t it? Deciding whether to accept the call or not pay attention to your opponent’s skills of playing after the flop.
  2. Both, your opponent and you, have $1000 on the table and the blinds stay the sme - $2-$4. You have QQ and make it $20 to go. Then your opponents stakes the whole 1000$ moving all-in. If you are not sure whether your opponent has no KK or AA, the right decision would be to fold. But if your opponent playes the same having only $60, then try your luck and accept his call, hoping that there is no KK or AA in his hand.

General Advices for No-limit Texas Hold’em Gamblers

  • Make sure you have 20-30% view of the flop percentage playing standard NL with $2-$4 blinds. This presumes AJ to be in first position, KT in middle and QT in late.
  • Choose the table to play at carefully. At least a cople of weak players will allow you to have an edge.
  • Develop a skill to make right and accurate estimates of people you are playing with. Find out who bluffs and who can be bluffed, who calls big bets without strong hands, who plays inferior hands or folds at aggression and etc.
  • We recommend to call only if you have a strong hand and godd reason like to trap an opponent for instance.
  • In most cases big raises and bets deserve respect: as plyers mainly do not bluff such calls usually happen to be true

Avoid Common Errors:

  • Do not hold a good hand when beat. It entails the loss of entire stack.
  • With weak hand do not call when facing a bet
  • Do not play excessively many starting hands
  • We don’t advise to hold drawing hands and go with them too far after flop without raising pre-flop.
  • Avoid over and under betting the pot - do not risk a lot with small hand.
