Beginners Tips For Texas Holdem

Though Texas holdem is a version of the poker game you need more practice and learn the game perfectly to be a real master of the game. So it is quite a disheartening for a newcomer to think about winnings as they don’t have enough practice. Though the players can not became a champion overnight, you have the chance to play very good and win in the game provided you have the right strategy for the game. Here are some great tips for the novice players.

- The first basic thing that a new player should learn about the Texas holdem poker is to go through its rules like the betting structure, the positions and the terminology that are associated with the game. When you are new to the game and don’t have proper practice, you should avoid playing in games where real money is involved.

- The basic goal that you should aim for is to formulate the best poker hand which is higher than the other player’s hands. You have to keep concentrate on the game unless the opponents will form straights and flushes while you are think you have a better hand. You have to play attentively and better if you can guess what your opponents have in their hands.

- In case you are playing face to face with players, you should know how to control the emotions and possibly restrain it to your self. There are players who have enough experience to read out the opponents. Your body language will tell them everything about your hand. So you should try that others can not get anything about your hand through the emotions.

- Another important decision that a player should make is to whether call or fold before the flop. Many advises that players should fold in case your card value is less than 10, however some players call in the same situation when they have 8 or 9 of the same suit that will increase their chances of straight or a flush. The amount for the blind should be decided accordingly. When you have better had you should bet better rather than betting for each hand.

- In case you have decided to call before the flop, you have another option of folding after the flop opens. In case you have less than a pair which is necessary for the straight or flush then you can fold.

- In case you are the first one to bet after the flop, you should check other cards to know whether you can add to the pot. Again when you have a strong hand by checking you can actually make others belief that you have a weak hand and they act accordingly.

These are the things that you should know better though there are many more things that you should learn to be a master.

Betting frenzy this weekend


Betting frenzy this weekend

If your looking for wagering action this weekend, it doesn’t get much better then this as the World Cup of soccer, the Belmont Stakes, NBA, NHL, MLB, PGA and NASCAR are all front and center.

In Germany there will be 12 stadiums, hosting 64 games that will put 3 million derrieres in the seat and the host country tackles Costa Rica on day one. Staggering numbers reveal 1.5 BILLION people will watch the opening match and 35 BILLION will take in the tournament and wagering outlets will be staffed to the maximum.

The Belmont Stakes from New York will wrap up a disappointing Triple Crown series that gave us the wonder horse Barbaro and then shattered our dreams with a freakish injury. I have been touting Bon & John all spring and like him in an exacter with Steppenwolfer that was named after the 70’s rock band Steppenwolf.

Last night the Dallas Mavericks got subpar scoring games from stars Dirk Nowitzkie and Josh Howard, but Jason Terry lit the Heat up for 32 points. They also got some quality minutes from Eric Dampier to subdue the listless Heat. Once again the fragile foul shooting of NBA players is alarming and how are you going to win when just two players on the team get to the charity stripe. Shooting 36% (7-19) on a skill that you have practiced since kindergarten is perplexing to say the least.

The Edmonton Oilers are in serious trouble down 2-0 to the Carolina Hurricanes and look for the Chris Pronger team to lay a beating on the North Carolina based Canes. This series is far from over and I look for it to go the full seven.

All baseball eyes are on the Chicago Cubs who are floundering and this may result in the dusting of manager Dusty Baker. The Cubs have lost 11 of their last 16 overall, falling 12 1/2 games out of first place. At 23-36, they've matched their season low mark of 13 games under .500.

For the Cubs, it was another night of futile at-bats against the Reds Brandon Arroyo and two relievers. Chicago has lost three in a row, getting a total of 15 hits and two runs in those games.

The PGA tour is in Rye, New York for the Barclay Classic a tuneup for the US Open and Tiger Woods is resurfacing. The nine-week layoff is the longest of his career, and Woods said he isn't sure what to expect out of his game. But having playing 18 holes at Winged Foot on May 27, he knows what to expect from the course.

Mike Weir is in striking distance after round one and you may want to place a bet on him to win this weekend.

NASCAR parks their trailers in the picturesque Pocono’s this weekend and the Roush team as usual will be front and centre as they have won the past two events staged there.

Happy Wagering!
