Limit Poker Texas Holdem Basic Strategy

Limit Texas Hold'em can prove deceptive to less skilled poker tournament players. A false notion held amongst poker and casino players is that you can simply sit and call down the hands whenever you have pot odds, without taking much notice of your opponents. In fact, this is how a majority of Limit Texas Hold'em players act on low limit tables ($2-$4 or $4-$Cool. In addition, intermediate players are very commonly afflicted with a lack of discipline (tightness) and a lack of applied aggression (strong attack in the appropriate spots).
In general, an overall tight/aggressive style of casino play is probably the most profitable, especially in intermediate/strong games.
Limit Texas Hold'em Basic Strategy Advice

  1. Play premium starting hands: in a regular game a percentage of 20-50% of flops seen is a pretty tight play.
  2. Table selection: beware of tight/aggressive tables (low profit, high volatility) and avoid strong players overall as they will "read you and take your money". Look for loose games where at least 35-40% see the flop on average and play their hands too far.
  3. Make sure to have pot odds when you are drawing: only call a bet if the pot justifies the call (see Pot Odds). It might be good to use an odds calculator.
  4. Be aware of your relative strength in the hand: make a habit of always anticipating the holdings of your opponents and be sure to further evaluate as more information is revealed in later rounds
  5. Try to learn the playing styles of your opponents: important factors include, what kind of hands do they raise with? What hands do they re-raise with? Do they call all the way with weak holdings? How do they play pocket- pairs? How do they play their draws? What kinds of hands do they call/raise with from early position? What type of hands do they check-raise with?
  6. Bet or raise instead of calling: Texas Hold'em is a draw-out game. If you believe you have the best hand you should always bet/raise. You do not want to give any free cards. The extra bets a player extracts from their opponents is the difference between a good hourly profit and a decent one.
  7. Always have a good kicker card to your highest card. (Weak kickers create second-best hands, which usually is a big leak in the long run).
  8. Try to occasionally steal pots when you are in late position: when few players are in and it has been checked around to you, a possibility of taking the pot in last or late position might arise. Only do this if it looks as though the board did not benefit anyone. Also, be sure to consider the type of players left in the pot. Being caught bluffing once in a while can help your game since players will be more likely to call you down. But be careful not to waste too many big bets on bluffing, a steal attempt on the flop is a good idea then check down on the turn and river.
  9. Varying your play is very effective to mis-lead your opponents: occasionally limp on "raising hands" and bet/raise on some "calling hands". Do this both before and after the flop in order to avoid predictability in your playing style.
  10. Fold in time: you will save money if you fold in time. Do not draw when you know you are beat and the pot does not warrant a call. A fold should preferably be done on the flop, before the bets are doubled on turn.
