sat plays

We had no early plays friday and none today again.

The split between early and late plays is about 50-50 and I would expect that to continue through the rest of the season. These late plays are FREE. Just send me your email address and I will add you to the group receiving late plays.

Betting Patterns

Most players have reliable betting patterns that allow you to get a good idea of where you are at in a hand. It takes steady observation to be able to discern these but its well worth the effort in dollars won and saved.

Ideally against top players you should have some sort of randomization scheme to randomize your play. It would really be tough if every player at the table was looking for patterns in your betting. But the reality is at the mid to lower limits many of the players are only playing there own hand or there analysis is so rudimentary it dosnt come into play.

Some of the patterns you look for:

1. When you raise before flop and get called by 1 player. Then get check raised on the turn with a low flop in holdem…….there are some holdem players that the check raise on a low flop is automatic…ie every time.

2. If you get raised on the flop…does this player raise for value in this spot or raise for a free card. Many players dont mix it up.

3. If you get raised on the turn…could it be a semi bluff..or a big hand….again many players never semi bluff. And many always do it..and manytimes there hands area stretch even for a semi bluff.

4 In omaha 8…when a person raises before the flop….do they always do it with aa…and nothing else. Many players play the game that way. And if they raise with only AA….is it any AA.

5. A few examples of some patterns I have picked up on for a few players…in omaha 8 there is an agressive player that when ever he lead into the flop….if it was a low flop…he had a questionable hand..and if it was a high flop he had nothing. But if he checked a high flop…look out….he always went for the check raises with a big hit on the flop.

Only your imagination will limit you in determining betting patterns. But next time you play make it a goal to determine at least one betting pattern per regular player you play with during your session. Once you get in the habit of doing this…you will be amazed at how much easier some of your decisions can become.
