Free Poker Guide - How to Read Set Hands

Regardless of if you just play free dewagg online or play for charity there are set hands that you must know and understand. These set hands are very significant as far as the game is concerned and are a tool used to help you understand other players and the hands they have when they make them.

Many times the difference between the size of the chip stacks of players at the beginning of a game and the size of the pot becomes apparent when reading their bets. Let’s say a player has Q-8 of hearts and you have pocket K’s. Most people accustomed to playing big don’t even think about checking, but you could and that would be the correct play. The player with Q-8 likely has a set, but regardless of what hand he has you must know the following:

  1. The flop did not give you a full house or a pair.
  2. The flop did not give you a two pair or a three of a kind.
  3. The flop did not give you a high pair.

If you look at the above flop, you will see that the board did not supply you with any possible draws. In other words, you didn’t hit a straight or a flush. There are no cases of consecutive cards, like 10-9 or 9-10. Also, no cases of possibly having hit the board cards. The only possibility left is that the player had two pairs, but he could also have just been chasing a flush.

Now let’s take a look at what could have happened. Let’s say that the first two players just checked. They each had about $8 in chips. There was a fairly good sized pot and it was obvious that the players were just holding out there hoping for one of the other players to hit a pair of cards. A pair of aces on the flop would have just about doubled the pot. Since you did not receive any cards last hand, you now have roughly 8 outs times $8 in chips in your stack.

The turn card gives you the 8th club in the middle of the table, thus another opportunity to double up. You now have roughly 11 outs times $9 in chips in your stack. If you are in the blind and the action folded to you, you should be raising the pot to around $30 or $100 now. Most of the players in the pot will have between $20 and $40 in chips, so you will not be stealing many. The last thing you want at this stage are the players limping into the pot or checking the flop. Be honest with yourself, you are not going to hit anything that will help you. On the flop, you are looking for two pair or trips. If you get neither, move on to the next hand.

The river card is a club, thus another opportunity to double your chip stack. Move all in then have your opponent call. Most players will have checked at this point, giving you a chance to grab for something. If they call, play up to theerticalflop, thenindle them with a raise.

Once you have grabbed the lead, everything should basically run back to the original 2003 situation. After having established your poker leadership, you must tech the fact that you control the table. It is generally not profitable to the point that you lose control and make foolish decisions. You want to at least win the table every once in a while so that you have a profitable session. Playing short-handed is a game that requires a lot of patience. relatives and friends need not apply. You don’t want to ruin a perfect game. So while playing, the real essence is Making The Right Decisions While Gamblers All around The World Try To Find Theirs.
