PRE FLOP BETTING STRATEGY
When learning to play before the flop, use this quick guide to get started and be profitable right away.
RAISING INTO THE POT
If everyone folds to you, and you wish to enter the pot, always RAISE into the pot.
“Nobody is always a winner, and anybody who says he is, is either a liar or doesn’t play poker.”
PRE FLOP BET SIZING
Keep your raises 2x – 3x the big blind.
If there are limpers (people who just call) and you still wish to raise in, then you can make your raise 3x-5x the big blind.
When 3 betting before the flop, make it 2.5x- 3.5x their bet.
SHORT STACKED STRATEGY
If you have 20 big blinds or under, you can just move all in instead of sizing a specific bet.
If dont in late position, this can usually be classified as an “unexploitable shove”, as it is mathematically profitbable no matter what cards you have.
