Texas Hold ‘Em is becoming an increasingly popular game. This may well be due to the fact that it is the poker variety most often featured on televised poker games, be it a tense game in the World Series of Poker or an entertaining game on some kind of celebrity poker show. Whatever the reason for this spike, it pays to keep up with current card playing trends sometimes — often literally. However, if you want to win, you have to have some serious game. You have to go in with some solid strategies, which we are going to discuss in a serious of posts.
When you first start out, it is essential that you keep it as simple as possible. Naturally, as a beginner, you should begin playing at low playing tables, but keeping this strategy in mind when you move up to higher tables can also pay off. You need to remember that slowplaying can lull your fellow players into a false sense of complacency, especially during an already sluggish hand. Often, sticking to your simpler roots can prove to be an ace in the hole — so to speak. Besides, keeping it in your arsenal is doubly beneficial. You never want to be too predictable in poker.
