Do You Know the Right Time to Move All-In in a Poker Tournament?

You are playing in a no limit poker tournament. Unfortunately สล็อต xo เครดิตฟรี things are not going well.

Your chip stack is low, and in order to get back in the hunt, you must make a move. But when is the right time to move all-in?

You can't wait too long or your time will be too valuable. On the other hand, if you move too early, you might be in too much danger of losing out.

The time to move all-in is when your stack is nine times สล็อต xo เครดิตฟรี or more the big blind. But, you want to make this all-in as the first pre-flop raiser.

Why nine times the big blind instead of ten or eleven? Because with nine times or less you have a good chance of taking down the pot. สล็อต xo เครดิตฟรี Furthermore, with ten or eleven there is a good chance you will be out-kickered. So why risk ten or eleven chips when you can risk nine to increase your chances of taking the blinds?

Of course, if you want to be a chip leader rather than just join the losers, you can increase the time you wait before moving all-in. If you think you can wait ten or eleven minutes, then do so. If you think you can wait longer, then do so. But you should not take forever. Even if it takes you ten minutes to wait, you are giving your stack away to the blinds. Don't let your stack sit in the red.

The time you take to wait for your opportunity to move all-in, is also the time you are giving your opponents the opportunity to read your actions. Be unpredictable. If you are predictable, your opponents will know when you have strong hands and can call you, when you have weak hands and can't decide whether to call or not.

When you move all-in, call the amount you want to bet. Don't raise the amount you want to bet. Set a limit for the amount you want to bet, and if you don't win the pot, move all-in. Before you move all-in, calculate your stack size and the blinds and antes going into the hand. This way you will know if you can take the blinds or not. If you have less than the amount you want to bet, you won't be able to. If you have more than the amount you want to bet, you will be forced to move all-in. This action is very important. Don't just push your chips in the middle and hope for the best.

What happens in these situations? A player moves all in ahead of you. You call. Instead of tightening up, you're playing more aggressively. Why? Because you know you have the best hand. You move all-in and you are going to win the pot. It doesn't matter what happens after you win.

Before you move all-in, read your opponent. สล็อต xo เครดิตฟรี Observe them. Who do they play tight? When they have the best hand, do they keep playing tight? When they have a weak hand, do they play around? Do they try and make a weak hand stronger with a continuation bet? If they try and make a big hand, do they have anything?

When you play, you should be looking for three things. If they bet immediately when you bet, then you know they have a strong hand. (On the flop) What kind of hand ( dexterity or strength ) do they have? If it's a weak hand, they will fold. If it's a strong hand, they'll either raise you, or push you off the hand.

) Do they play in a way that makes it impossible for them to make a decision? (They always act strong, but their moves are too complicated to make accurate assumptions)

) How do they make their moves: heavy-handed bets, or light-handed bets? Do they take a lot of time to make their play, or is it super-fast?

You should play against these kinds of players with any hand that has a chance. In some cases you'll find that the betting patterns of the better players are too complicated, and so you won't be able to make accurate reads.

However, for the most part, you'll probably be able to สล็อต xo เครดิตฟรี play against any player as long as you know what they do when they have a hand. Knowing what they do with any hand is more important than what cards they actually have.

This is a very simple concept. But, it's an important one. If you can't answer yes to at least three questions, you shouldn't be playing against that player. You should be folding.
