Playing poker can be fun, but it can also leave you with all kinds of those head scratching moments where you aren’t sure what to do in certain situations. There are so many different hands, in so many different spots, in a ton of different situations, and we understand that even the more advanced poker players sometimes have to ask the question of “what would you have done in this spot?”. And sometimes it’s not nearly as easy as “how to play pocket aces” (although we will give you a breakdown on that as well). Here are a few of the topics that we will be covering under the poker strategy here at Betting Blogger.
Texas Hold’em Tournament Strategy
This will cover both early in tournaments, and late in tournaments; as well as cover situations of when you have a short stack and when you have a big stack. Tournaments can be a great way to make money, and also enjoyable if you know how to make the correct plays.

We’ll give you advice on how to focus on making the money, and also how to focus on the number of blinds that you have.

Omaha Poker Strategy
Omaha is very similar to Texas Hold’em poker, but you are dealt four starting cards instead of two, and MUST use two of the four starting cards to make your hand. Our strategy section will cover good starting hands, as well as how to read the board. It also covers what hands are typically strong in Omaha, as it does vary against Texas Hold’em.
How To Play From Early Position
This section covers when you are one of the first players to act in either a tournament or cash game. Position is huge in any type of poker, and we’ll explain in full how to play specific hands in early position.
How To Play From Middle Position
Very similar to how to play from early position, except that it’s how to play when you are one of the middle players to act at the table.
How To Play From Late Position
Playing from late position can make you one of the scariest hands at the table, and we’ll explain more in-depth as to why. Having position on the rest of the table is a huge advantage.
How To Play Pocket Aces
General strategy on how to play pocket aces from all over the table. We’ll explain how to disguise your hand, and to get the most value out as well.
How To Get The Most Value From Your Hand
Getting value from your hand, can be the difference between being a profitable player, or just a break even, or just above average player. When you have the best hand, you always want to make sure that you get the most money in the pot against your opponent as you can.
Razz Basic Strategy
The game of Razz is one of the most interesting games of poker out there, and also one of the easiest to learn in a lot of players’ minds. The idea behind Razz is to get the lowest hand possible with straights and flushes not counting, meaning that A-2-3-4-5 is the best possible hand.
Seven Card Stud Basic Strategy
Seven Card Stud is one of the originals when it comes to poker. It was one of the first poker games played, and still is featured in big time tournaments and played in most online poker rooms as well.
There are a ton of different games and a ton of different strategies for each game as well. The most important thing to remember is the find the game that suits you best, and that you enjoy the most; and read up, and learn as much as you possibly can about it.
