Texas Hold’em System

I am not going to go over the rules of how to play Texas hold em. Chances are you know the basics and are now ready to improve your game.

So, I will receive straight into the System of Texas hold’em.

Basically the game begins with everyone becoming dealt 2 cards (hole cards). Out of the 169 attainable starting palms there are only certain arms you should wager on with which I will list below.

Powerful Hands

AA, KK, Queen-Queen, Jack-Jack and AK (appropriate).

These are the strongest doable hole cards in holdem. These generate you favorite straight away and must be wagered really aggressively and usually raised with no matter what position you will be in. If others desire to remain in you should make it costly for them, this will also drive out any weaker fingers that could possibly have otherwise stayed in and got a lucky flop to generate a better hand. With Ace-Ace and King-King you ought to at all times re-raise if there’s a raise prior to you.

Beneficial Hands

Ten-Ten, AQ (appropriate), AJ (appropriate), King-Queen (suited) and Ace-King

These are excellent palms, an ace plus a superior card gives you the chance of a good pair with a great kicker. Also suited great cards give you the likelihood of good pairs and flushes with an excellent kicker. These hands must also be played aggressively and raised with from middle to late positions if no other raises have been made. If there has already been a raise it’s often ideal to just call. Similarly if that you are in an early position it’s often best to merely call or maybe just make a little elevate with these palms for fear of becoming re-raised by someone having a strong hand.


Ace-Ten (appropriate), King-Jack (appropriate), QJ (appropriate), JT (appropriate), AQ and 99. Ace-Two (appropriate), A3 (appropriate), Ace-Four (suited) and A5 (appropriate

These are medium strength arms with very good possibilities but you’ve got to take into account how other players are betting. If one or 2 players wager aggressively then odds are they have a much better hand than you and you should fold.

Should you do remain in for the flop then you’ve got to choose whether to remain in for the turn card. You may have to use common sense here. If you’ve got made a hand then you may possibly want to stay in except take into account what the other players may have. Could they make a greater flush or straight than you? Is there an ace in the flop giving someone a potential pair of aces that beats your high pair?

Any pair, eight or less, is worth betting if it doesn’t cost you much more than the huge blind to see the flop or about 5 percent of your stack.

The reason being that the flop will generate your pocket pair into three of a kind about 12 per cent of the time. So a low pair is suddenly a fairly strong hand if the flop turns your pair into a set. As constantly you might have to consider if someone can beat it depending on what’s showing.

You’ve to choose what to do based on how they bet, again if they bet aggressively they may possibly well have a much better hand than you. They could be bluffing but as a rule its very best to be cautious and wait for the killer hand to beat them with.
