Typical mistakes in poker Unnecessary Calls
In this new series, typical errors are illuminated, who regularly especially beginners and given tips on how to avoid them. The first common mistakes that should be discussed here is the unnecessary calls when your own the reason very strong-looking hand is beaten almost certain.
Example 1: The unexpected River-Raise
An example will demonstrate this type of call: You play NL50 online, and the button is a rather passive player who plays a bit too many hands. In this hand the protagonist to include the bet on the river makes all right. However, after the otherwise passive player raises the bet the protagonist is usually beaten and has to fold. Of course, it initially appears unlikely that the button with the River may have gotten a particularly great help. The only draw that got there would have been a guts hot with 76 or a runner-runner straight with A3.
Before the button brings his raise it’s likely hands top pair or a flush draw. However, with the raise on the river drop those hands almost completely out of the range of the enemy. There is no meaningful hand that still beats the protagonist who raises this river. It often happens that a player who is in the situation of the protagonists go through, the horses. He cannot picture how it can be beaten realistic here and pay the opponent’s raise.
However, the call on the river is particularly equal to a passive player. Practically always, the enemy is a hand like turn over 76s a slow played a set. Although the protagonist gets on the River-raise enormous pot odds and has only around 22 percent of cases hold the best hand but in fact expected the chance to win the showdown here, well below 10 percent.
Example 2: Two Pair shaky
Again NL50 (6-max) online play and the opponent in this hand is a very tight, not very imaginative player branded concrete player. Again, the protagonist makes to turn no greater mistake. But the Call of All-Ins on the turn is a rather dire affair against this opponent.
A bluff is already almost completely ruled out played as hard as the protagonist and considering the strength that he has demonstrated. In the end only 11 realistic combinations remain in range of the enemy left KK (3 combos), JJ (3), 77 (1), 66 (1) and KJ (3). Now and then a draw (approximately like ) or an overly optimistic played couple sneak aces in the range of the enemy but the protagonist needed in the on top of hand on the turn at least 29% winning percentage and he has against this tight player certainly not ,S9S8
In the heat of battle
Bringing in situations such as in the examples above calls in the end a very expensive proposition. Nevertheless many players make those same mistakes regularly: Man holds a commanding hand sees itself really far forward but suddenly grabs the opponents of the hammer and signaled that he has an even stronger hand. In the heat of battle it happens often players that they did not understand during the game or do not want to realize that the own just yet baresark looking hand has no chance next to the range of your opponent.
Until just one was still concerned with the idea of how to reshot the maximum profit out of your own hand, and the next moment you are faced with losing the whole stack. Who can keep a cool head in such situations and is able to dispose of a good hand against a much stronger range makes the long run considerably higher proceeds. Of course, it comes in Hold’em regular Cooler situations, so hands where you cannot do anything else set as his stack. Approximately preflop with kings against aces or the set-over-set. But it is a mistake to dismiss each situation as Cooler in which one loses to a better hand with a higher than average hand.
