Hold'em Tips on the Right Time to Fold
It saves us a lot if we know when to raise or fold. Folding is crucial when the poker situation we are in is not redeemable.
Knowing when to fold has a lot to do with reading poker tells. It's really helpful for us to know when exactly to fold when everything looks bad for us and more or less detecting bluffers' real hands is a way of getting a perfect timing. But what we're after here are poker tells, not really bluffs. Here's our working principle: most strong players act weak and most weak players act strong. This is often (not always) the case.
And often, strong players who seem weak don't really intend to be such—strong players with enough experience tend to relax themselves when their cards are okay. Hence lots of times we need to deal with poker tells. Sometimes, they do act weak, but the point here is that they usually have strong hands. So here are Hold'em tips on poker tells that show a strong player who seems or acts weak.
Seeming disinterest. This is the common poker tell and the most powerful bluff there is. It sends the message clearly across, "I don't care what you have or do. The pot's mine." The player most times looks far away, not making eye contact. This actually says the player doesn't need to resort to watching other players for poker tells because what the player has is a killer hand.
Often, players with good but unsure winning hands need to supplement their good hands with what poker tells they can get from other players. This is especially so in a flop hit—when players either have watchful or disinterested eyes. A helpful flop hit makes a strong player glimpse at it and nonchalantly look away, bright faced. Hold'em tips say, a long, hard stare at the flop cards means the cards are of no help or they're bad for the player.
Ever seen how a player prays to himself? The player's too quiet and seems to be contemplating on something deep. Well, the player is wishing we'd call the player's bet. When everybody's having a good time laughing and suddenly one player quiets down, or somewhat forces a laugh out the mouth, chances are, the player's got a strong hand.
When we're positive that a killer hand is present by how players act on the flop, that's when we fold if we have a poor hand. For more Hold'em tips, visit http://www.NoLimitHoldemSecrets.com/tl/766QSyC.
