Cash table poker game strategy

For a successful start in your favorite game, it is not enough just to learn poker combinations. At the beginning of your career, you should concentrate on strategy and try to follow these simple instructions. Answers to five questions will help you earn your first poker winnings in cash game.

1. What are the limits to start on?

We don't recommend starting with medium or high limits even if you can afford betting on them. On the contrary, micro-limits can and should be beaten by every ambitious player. Start with a deposit of 30 buy-ins of the minimum limit and gradually polish your skills. Once the bankroll grows to 50-70 buy-ins of the next limit—it's time to say goodbye to your familiar rivals and move forward. If you failed to stay at the new height and lost more than 20 buy-ins, move down the limits and continue working on your game.

2. What style to stick to in the game?

At the beginning of your career, use the tight-aggressive style of play. Play 18-20% of your best starting hands, minimize calls in free positions and exploit your opponent's weaknesses. Reasonable aggression and the ability to "push" the opponent will be exactly what you need.

3. How to work on the game?

Today, a beginner does not need to read hundreds of poker forums pages in order to find snippets of precious knowledge. All the starting information is in the public domain. If you want to improve on your own, then choose the available poker "simulators". You can also "borrow" the right solutions from Pokerbet streamers, who are stream every day.

4. What to pay attention to at the table?

At the start of your career, you should open no more than 3-4 tables at a time to be able to think longer about your hands. Pay attention to how your opponents react to different actions and what combinations they show on showdown. A weakness noticed at the right time can give an amazing advantage over any opponent.

5. When to end the session?

The average duration of a standard session is 3-3.5 hours, but it's better to calculate this time based on individual characteristics. If you lose attention and your actions become automatic, it's time to take a break.
