Poker Strategy – All-in and Raising – Getting To the Top

Ever go into a poker game and find people raising and when the final card is drawn you think ” that person went all in with a hand like that”. But you look at their chip stack and it’s higher than yours. They’ve been doing this a certain move in rounds over and over and have a payoff of a great chip stack as a result. Raising or going all-in gives implied value to hand that might be lackluster. Everyone who plays poker can tell you of the time a pair of aces lost to three of a kind 2’s or three of a kind 2’s lost to three of a kind 3’s. There really is no book on a good hand till the last card comes out. And there this is the loophole that can be exploited by raising or going all-in.
Going all-in might make an opponent think twice before playing but their ante is allready on the table. They fold, you win. I see this over and over again. It doesn’t always work but it’s a great way to build chips.
Once I was playing two tournaments at the same time and clicked the all-in button by accident. Guess what no one challenged my hand and I got the pot. Doing this over and over people will catch on and want to challenge you just for the sake of challenging you and some might just have good hands that might win. But raising and going all-in is another aspect of poker, the betting side of poker, that must be covered as well as having good hands. Yes you can take the pot by simply going all-in or raising. This is a more aggressive strategy for those who realize that there are many hands in poker and it’s just a game.
It’s best not wait till your chip stack is too low and you have room to breathe easy at the table. You’ll see some great results.
