3 Steps to becoming a PRO Poker Player

People say that poker is easy to play but hard to master. This page will give you some advanced pro strategy concepts to help you win more and more in your poker games.

Once you have learned the basics, then it’s time for you to become a pro, this article will turn you into one.

Know the different styles of playing: Poker is fascinating because it presents the player with a sheer variety of different approaches, styles, and ways to play. Here is the broken down combination of the styles:

●Tight: it’s a cautious style, playing with fewer hands and not taking too many risks.
●Loose: Playing a lot of hands with great willingness to wager. It’s the opposite of tight.
●Aggressive: A lot of betting, opening pots, and making big bets to put others under pressure is involved.
●Passive: it’s the opposite of aggressive, you call more often than betting, letting the opponent dictate how the game plays out.

The ability to switch up your styles at the poker table is useful because playing one style rigidly will make you predictable.

Try mastering these styles and incorporating them into your poker games for a chance to win more.
Understand the importance of position: The dealer position is usually the last player to act in a betting round and is a tactical advantage as you already know how your opponents have acted.

It is changed after every hand so that this advantage is shared between the players fairly. Use this tactical edge in your favor. If you are playing opponents who have to act before you, it is said that you ‘have position’ while they are ‘out of position’. This advantage is significant.

Understand your odds and outs: Odds are the way of expressing the probability of something happening. So in a poker game, you have 4 clubs and are waiting for that last club to fall which will make you flush and win you the pot.

There are 13 clubs in a 52 card deck and 2 are in your hand and 2 on the board so only 9 clubs are remaining. Discount the 2 cards you have and 4 on the board so only 46 cards can come on the river, 9 of which will win you the pot of which the 9 are your outs. So the ratio is 37 to 9.

Your chances of making your flush are approximately 4/1.Incorporate these strategies and they will win you the pot.
