Pick Your Battles When Playing Poker

Online poker is fun, exciting and it can be profitable. When playing online poker many people make the mistake of playing every single hand and mixing it up with raises all the time. That style of play may work for some of the poker pros but most players don’t win that way. If you are going to be successful at online poker you have to pick your battles, because you can’t win every time.

The first thing to remember when playing online poker is that you don’t have to win every pot. What you want to win is the big pot. You can lose some small ones along the way. You need to learn how to choose the battles that give you the best chance at winning.

Your first step to picking the right poker battles is using your stack. The bigger stacks usually win against the smaller stacks. The large stacks have the ability to control the wagering action at the table. Pick a game where your stack is at least equal to that of your opponents, but preferably larger.

The next step after choosing the right table is choosing the right battles. The best players wait until they have positive expectations for a specific hand. If you watch poker on television you will see some players that love to play every hand. There are a few pros that can get away with this strategy. Most players, even pros, cannot. Bad players look to get involved in nearly every pot and eventually they will go broke because they play too many hands.

The battles you want to win are when you have the advantage. You want money in the pot when you are leading and little in the pot when you are weak. If you want to win online poker battles you have to pick your spots carefully.
