Online Poker Tips

If you have never played a cash poker game then now would be a great time to start.  You might be very familiar with playing poker tournaments but haven’t tried your hand at the cash games.  There is nothing to fear at the cash tables and in fact, you might even make more money at those tables then by playing a poker tournament.  What tips should you keep in mind when playing cash games?

When you begin playing Texas Holdem cash games you need to remember the basics.  The first decision you have to make is whether or not to play your hand at all and amazingly enough, many people make the wrong decision. The main rule is to stick to strong starting hands.  Those are aces, kings, queens, jacks, 10’s, ace-king, and ace-queen.  You can play suited connectors from time to time but you don’t get carried away. Sometimes it is worth it to see the flop if the big blind is low enough and you are not raised.  Be careful though, you can get into all kinds of trouble playing hands that you should have folded.

A huge tip to playing cash games in Texas Holdem is that if you don’t hit anything on the flop, fold.  Too many players make the decision that since they are already in the hand they are committed to see more cards.  Don’t make that mistake.  If you didn’t get a decent flop, fold.  As the poker game progresses you want to have a good idea of what you want to accomplish.  Remember that your opponents are trying to win just like you are.  Very often they will be drawing to something, so if you are strong, make them pay for the extra cards.

Fold Weak Hands
What you want to remember when playing Texas Holdem is that very often your weak hands will cost you money if you play them.  You are just not going to hit draws and more often than not you are going to lose money. Throw those bad hands away.


Keep things simple in cash games. Play your strong hands aggressively and fold your weak ones. That is pretty much as simple as it gets with Texas Holdem but you would be amazed at how many players don’t do these two simple things.  Simplicity oftentimes works in poker and playing strong hands and folding weak ones is simple, yet effective.  Keep that in mind the next time you are playing Texas Holdem cash games.
