How to Beat the Dealer

Have you ever wondered what are the best and bad strategies for beating the dealer in poker? This article reveals the best and bad methods so you can have a more fun and profitable poker experience.

Sometimes, poker can get very frustrating because you are continually losing money. This is problem is further complicated by the fact that sometimes the card counts, probabilities and possible strategies are all wrong and you are just making a bad decision in every sense of the word.

However, poker is not entirely about luck and probabilities; it is also about the use of bluff and other strategies to outwit your opponents. In fact, this is one of the rarest kind of games in which you canISE (actic – is an action) your opponent instead of playing against him.

We rarely go beyond the first zone (of online poker rooms) when we are playing poker; this is the zone where the best player will still be able to find some way to beat you, no matter how good or bad a player he is.

Since poker is a game of statistics, you should be able to tell which cards you should play in what position (based on the statistics of all the hands played). Cards that are suited, high cards, pairs, three of a kind, full houses – whatever you call them, you should call them when you have the right cards and there should be no whatsoever of late psychology involved in calling – normally you want to beat your opponent by means of a better hand or a bluff.

When playing stakes poker, it is highly crucial the cards you are playing fit in with your style of the game exactly. If you are playing tight, and you have a couple of cards that have a high card value, you should fold these cards every time. Even if you draw a card that beats the dealer, you should only play with your best cards. Low cards value cards like 2-6 are of no consequence whatsoever, and should be played 98% of the time if you have any say in the game.

It is also important to raise in stakes 7meter to scare the opponents out, and to get the bets higher. You should be able to have medium hands (but not ‘ monsters’) in about 20% of all hands, so you should try to make a hand every 7-8 times you play. No matter what cards you have, when you have a strong hand, you should try to make the others fold. If you have a good hand with a weak kicker, then you can pretend to have a high card, or an ace, and bet aggressively.

With stakes poker, you should be capable of playing on various levels. You need to have an in-depth knowledge of the statistics, i.e. winning odds of your particular hand against number of players left, etc. This will increase your winning odds considerably.

Finally, in this article there is a common flaw of poker players – they like to play very loose poker. Loose poker is popular because people think they are more likely to win. Loose poker is also called ‘all-in’ poker, which is where you play with all your chips. Players can both win and lose by betting all their chips. This is called going “all-in” and risks all your stack if you have a very strong hand. If you don’t have a very strong hand, and there is a big chance that the other player has a stronger hand, you should prefer to hold out and let the other player get the pot.
