Value Betting | Texas Hold’em

In Hold’em one of the more misunderstood concepts is that of the . One reason for the confusion is that the definition of what it actually means to place a value bet in is often up for debate. In his book “Phil Hellmuth’s Texas Hold’em”, Phil Hellmuth defines value betting as:

“Making a bet in the belief that you’ll win money with what you hold slightly more often then you’ll lose money with it. A bet that you may well lose, but you believe the chances favor your making the bet.”

What does this mean?

A value bet has more to do with the long run then it does with the current hand. In other words, you’re holding a decent hand and there are a few other players still hanging in. Your hand while good is by no means a monster. It’s kind of the middle point between a marginal hand and a killer hand. You feel that what you’re holding will give you say a 1 in 3 chance of winning. So you place a decent sized bet that you’re confident will get called by the other players – you’re goal is to add more chips to the pot. While your winning is by no means a sure thing (1 out of 3), you know that in the long run, the additional chips you’re adding to the pot will result in bigger wins for you. You’re adding money to the pot, knowing that this additional money will make up for the two losses you’ll face every three times this hand is played.

Here’s a few suggestions:

1) Since value betting is a long run type of wager, don’t try it if you’re short stacked. In other words this is a strategy for you to use if you’re ahead.

2) New players probably shouldn’t get involved with value betting. As a new player you already have enough to think about – save value betting for a later time when you’ve accumulated more experience.

3) Value betting, like much of Texas Hold’em involves quite a bit of psychology. I wouldn’t attempt to value bet if I’ve just lost several hands. Use it when you are controlling the table.

Finally, value betting in Texas Hold’em is a more advanced technique that can add to your bankroll –in the long run. It’s not an end all poker strategy, it’s a tool that can be effective if used properly.
