Here are my basic rules regarding playing poker – which hand should be considered the strongest, the weakest or a combination of the two.
Rule 1: The strongest basic Vodka138 hand is the royal flush. That means that you have a ace, king, queen, jack and ten of the same suit.
Rule 2: However, depending on your card combination, you have several different hands of the same rank, but they are not the same suit. You can have a pair, two pairs, three of a kind, four of a kind, a straight, flush, full house, poker flush, and even a straight flush. This is why this hand ranks above the other basic poker hands.
Rule 3: The least stronger hands are the pairs, while the stronger ones are the royal flush. In my opinion, the pair is more flexible. I suggest that you stick with these basic rules regarding the strength of your hand and the type of poker hands that are better than what you already have.
This is not to say that you cannot play other types of hands. You can play other types of hands when you play poker, however, these other hands are just backup cards that you can get in case you lose the hand you are playing.
What I am trying to say is that if you want to be a great poker player, you do not need the royal flush, four of a kind, or even the brutal straight. You already have excellent hands. The royal flush is a bonus.
A-A-K-K, 4-4-4, 3-3-6-9, 5-5-8-8, 4-4-8-8, you will probably lose. They will not win consistently unless you nail the royal flush more than once in four years.
As the first rule says, you should play poker a lot. But, if you play poker the wrong way, you will lose. Poker the wrong way will make you a loser. The first thing you should do is figure out what the best possible hand is. Once you know what hand you have, you can decide if you want to win it today or not.
Which hand would you rather have? Of course, everyone wants to win the hand, but that is not the point. The point is to make money. If you want to win today, play a better hand. After all, you are playing poker. You are in a competition to win, not to just tolerated be in.
Once you know what hand you have, you need to know what other players have. When you learn what other players have, you can formulate strategies to beat them. Using their cards against them is how you win.
For example, you have a 6 and a 5. Everyone knows that a 6 is a pretty average hand, and most of the hands that you will play have at least one of these. So, the chances that you are drawing a low card are pretty high. You need to bet to get the opponents to fold. You can also bluff with a hand like this, because most of the time, other players will not believe you when you do have a better hand.
However, you should not go over the top with a hand like this. Much better hands can beat you, and your losing hands will eventually run out. You need to know when to get out if you are not beat at this point, and move on to the next hand. There is no sense in throwing away a hand that already has you losing.
8-8-Q-3-3, 5-5-8-8-9, 4-4-8-7-10, 3-3-8-7-10, 2-2-8-6-9, where the Q is weak, and the three’s are not so weak. When you see these hands, it is time to get out. At this point, you are either broke or breakeven, and probably one or the other.
One instance that many people miss is that of pocket 7’s. When you have 7’s, you have a good chance of either a straight, or a flush. Most of the time, you will have the option to limp in, or possibly even raise with a pair of 3’s. You should always raise with pocket 7’s no matter what the situation. Your hands deserve respect.
8-8-Q-3-3, 5-5-8-8-9, 4-4-8-7-10, 3-3-8-7-10. . Most of the time, you will miss the flop with these hands, and fold are your only options.
