Hold’em Tactics – Top Opening Hands

One of the biggest issues that I encountered when I first got into Texas hold em was figuring out what cards to bet on in what Placement. Often I would obtain burned on a hand that I thought was a very good starting hand. Come to find out they were good hands, just not in the placement I was wagering them from. Here can be a pretty basic list of what sort of hands to play and what location it’s suitable to play them in. Bear in mind this chart doesn’t factor in raises or suits.

Play From Any Location

Ace, Ace KK Queen, Queen Jack, Jack TT 99 Eight, Eight AK AQ AJ Ace, Ten KQ King, Jack

Bet on Mid to Late Placement

66 Five, Five KT QJ QT Jack Ten

Play in Late Position Only

Ace, Nine Ace, Eight Ace, Seven King, Nine King, Eight Q9 Jack, Nine J8 Ten, Nine Ten, Eight Nine, Eight 97

If you are just beginning to play poker, betting these hands at the suggested positions will aid you always be in a safe placement prior to the flop. As your game progresses, you’ll be able to add additional hands to this list and know how to play them in specific situations. In case you are just beginning to bet on cards, I would recommend wagering for nickels and dimes at household or for free at an online poker website. Poker web sites are nice because you have to see a lot of much more hands per hour than you do at residence. A number of goods sites to wager on for no cost are UltimateBet and PartyPoker.com.
