There are so many variables to , and so many different aspects to what many people first assume is just a simple card game. Texas Hold ‘Em is one of the great games because the rules are so simple, but the game itself is complex. There are players who make a successful living because they know every mathematical equation backwards and forwards. There are players who make a living because they have no tells and play a solid game, and there are even players who make a living who are only okay with the math, but they can read every tell of every person at the table. Many times the small things, just as much or even more than the large, can make a huge difference on whether or not you are a big winner at your table.

One of the small details that can pay big is if you can locate a player’s tendencies. This sounds simple and basic, but this goes well beyond the basic tells that virtually every poker player knows by heart. Certain people have tendencies that they may or may not even know about. One of the major tendencies that is overlooked by people is how a player will play suited cards. There are a lot of “rules” on how to play suited cards. Virtually any player will play high suited cards, but the low cards are a different story. What is unusual is that there are some basic patterns that can prove profitable–if for no other reason then that they will tell you when to throw away a beaten hand before you lose much more.

One of the small details that, though not used often, can often be very valuable is a person’s preference towards suit. Who would keep two small suited cards? Which suits? Surprisingly, there are differences. For some reason, spades are the most common suit where someone will keep two low, or two middle, cards to chase the flush. It might be something psychological, but for some reason more players will take a chance on suited spades than any other hand. That means that if there are a lot of people, and the river flops three spades, unless you’re holding the ace then it is time to get out.

Other players have a preference. If you study long enough, you may be able to detect a pattern. Many times this is a conscious thing. My friend, Jeff, had several table games in a row where he seemed to hit a heart flush every single time he played them. As a result, he will always play two hearts, no matter what the cards, long enough to take a look at the flop. He will always consider chasing hearts, where if they were clubs or diamonds, we would simply throw the junk cards away.

For other players, the preference is actually subconscious. I generally play conservatively, but I like to chase flushes, so I will make a lot of cheap calls to see cards. There’s one exception. For some reason, I found I always threw away diamonds. While for many people their minds are wired to think well of spades, mine was actually wired to throw away junk diamonds, and even some mid-ranged ones. Knowing this pattern has made me realize that others can also have the same trait.

Since this is a preference that involves hitting, or running away from, a flush, though rarely used this type of information can be extremely valuable. Look for it, and when you finally use it to make a good call or a good lay down, remember that the money not lost is just as good as the money won. Every pro thinks so, and you will be grinning ear to ear the first time this keeps you from being busted by a river rat!

  1. Marginal starting hands in Holdem (Play Video Poker) Says:

    […] To decide how to proceed we need to first define what a marginal hand is. This can be a tricky matter as your hand is often as good as your opponents think it is, in relation to their own hand –follow that? What I mean is, if your opponent(s) are meek players, and you’ve followed a tight poker strategy and have cultivated a tight table reputation, then any bet from you will probably scare them off, if they’re not confident in their own hand. However, for the purposes of this article, we’ll assume that a marginal starting hand is a hand that can turn into something good if we hit the flop. This could be a low pair –say deuce through four, suited connectors (6h,7h) or 1 face card and a low card off suit. Any of these hands could turn into something good after the flop but are probably not the best hand pre-flop. […]
