Example text

But in general, playing these hands aggressively is a good way to play Hold’em. I know that you’re probably thinking right now, “Is it really that easy? ” The answer is basically yes, at least as far as your starting requirements (your first two cards) are concerned! Yes, because it will be easy for you to play before the flop (on the first round of betting) when all you have to remember is to play only the top ten. ) In what follows I’ll be giving you a number of examples of hands that will help you understand the best courses of action for a beginning player to take.

What should you do? You make it $40 to go, figuring that you have both the jackal and the elephant beat. The elephant has probably called with a hand too weak to call with, and the jackal has probably raised with a hand too weak to raise with. If either of them has a pair, then you will need to make a hand, but this is still a good time to play aggressively. Making it four bets here is an especially Limit Hold’em: Beginners’ Strategy 43 good play, because the jackal could have anything. And putting in those extra bets now will make the pot so large that you’ll probably be forced to play the hand farther than you might want to, making it easier to call the jackal down with ace high.

OK, you have the fifth-best hand in Hold’em, and in general I would say never fold this hand before the flop in limit Hold’em. But there may come a time or two, as you become a lion, when you choose to fold this hand before the flop. Maybe, for example, the tightest mouse on the planet has made it four bets to go, and you just have a strong feeling that you’re beat. After all, what hand would encourage the tightest player in the world to make it four bets to go? Probably A-A or K-K. But because this is the beginners’ section, I’d advise you to put in your four bets anyway; when you are a lion you will know when the time is right to fold this hand.
