Ace King Is Your Best Friend
The king of poker, of course, has to be Ace King. With this powerful starting hand, you can dominate at the table like no other. Whether you hit the flop hard with pocket rockets (Ace, King), or a set (two of the same card, like Queen, MPO500), you can sure flop a huge hand, like King, Ace, King. Unlike pocket rockets, King, Ace, King has the potential for two distinct situations to capitalize on.
When you hold the ace and king of the same suit, you can flop a straight. That’s a great hand to play and win with. If you hold those two cards in your hand, you can only escalating your bets. You can only bet until you see a free card. If you ever see two kings, you are in trouble. The trouble only occurs if someone has two overcards, like Kings, Ace, King. If that happens, you will have a difficult time playing out the hand since you can’t bet twofold. In most instances, I will raise a pair of kings, perhaps even going all in. If I ever see two more kings, I will continue to bet and maybe take the pot. Having KT, SoQ, QQ+ in this situation, is not what you want to see. The bottom line is your cards or your money in the pot.
Royale For Some
Having a pair of kings in the hole is never a bad thing. You want these to be the cards that get you the best returns. These are the cards that make you a guaranteed winner. Compared to the times you don’t, you will win more often. You need to remember to raise in well determined amounts according to your cards. Never go in ahead of yourself. If you have 10, Jack, Queen, and Ace, raise three to cap it. If you have less than 10, go all in if no one has gone in, unless you have a very good hand. If you raise and someone goes in, you will probably lose the hand, so only do it if you have the dealer distracted.
The set of tens is a little better than the pairs. For instance, set of sevens has a higher likelihood of winning. But unlike pairs, if you have 10, Jack, Queen, and Ace, you should go all in before the flop. If you have 10, Jack, Queen, and Ace, you will probably win. For instance, if you have the dealer on the ropes, you will likely win. If you have the wife and she drifts in on a lucky twenty-one, you may win, too.
If you have a good hand, you should bet out, unless the hand is weak. groups of 4’s or less, and you call your bets, are examples of hands you want against. If you have a weaker hand, and you call, you can’t win a knock one if another player wins the pot.
The blinds can go up quickly, so in pre-flop action, you should watch for the aggressive players. These players appear to be the ones who go out quickly and fire quick bets. Against these players, you can call, but your raise should not be more than three times the blind. Against light fray players, you can two hat the bets, or three times the blind. Just remember a raise of three or more times the blind will almost certainly mean one thing: somebody’s going to have a better hand than you.
Once you are in the hand, you should play it out. There are good opportunities to win very big pots. But, these opportunities don’t always valuate. When you are trying to get money in to the pot, a flop with two discernible cards to a flush or straight seems to be quite good. On the other hand, two discernible cards to a straight and a flush looks like a good chance for the runner.
