Texas Holdem Tips

Think Texas Holdem is just about luck? Think again! If anything the game has to do more about strategy than luck. How else can you explain the top ten poker players who keep winning all the various poker tournaments? If it were luck that list would be dominated with rookies and casual poker players. Hence in this article we will examine tips on how one could improve their Texas Holdem Poker game.

Improve Your Poker Face
In Texas Holdem you are only good as your poker face. If an opponent sees you getting excited, or upset, when you read your cards, you are as good as beaten. Therefore, in order to win you have to trick your opponents and this means you should avoid showing any emotion at the table.

Be Patient
Patience is a virtue, and it is an essential one to have when playing Texas Holdem. Many players too easy become impatient and immediately start making careless betting which leads to careless play and eventually to loosing the game.

Don’t Count On Your Bluff
Don't waste your time going all in, or placing large bets, if all you have is a bad hand. Sure you can bluff but what happens when an opponent calls you out? Ideally you should keep your bluff play to no more then 20% of your total game play.

Learn To Read Your Opponents
In Texas Holdem is it vital that you learn how to read your opponent. Observe your opponents body language. Examine their expression when they look at their cards. Do they look excited? Do they look shocked? Try to find anything that would give them away. If you can get a read on what your opponents are thinking, or feeling, you have gained a massive advantage.

If you can master these poker strategies, you will become a force to be reckoned with on any poker table.
