Professional Poker Tools – Part Five – Building A Poker Computer
Just because the Super Bowl is now over and Valentine’s Day has passed does not mean there will no more partying for a while. Spring is coming in just a few short weeks and people would like to find their pot of gold for a St. Patty’s Day party, have an Easter Celebration, or even moms and dads want to celebrate their own spring break for the kids.
The other part of Omaha that catches new players is the fact that lower hands very seldom win. Three of a kind is not a winner as often as it is in Holdem. There are many straights, flushes and full houses dealt in this game as each player has nine cards to make a hand. Ace deuce is a good starting hand for the low, but another player or two often ties it. When this happens, the high hand wins their half of the pot and the low hand players split what is left. What this means is you do not go crazy raising the hand with a low hand nut winner as it can be tied. The nut high hand can bet with impunity as the high hands are rarely tied.
Raising on the first round and there’s three more players going after you is the first issue. There’s a risk that one of them could really have a strong hand. It is not a huge risk if you haven’t invest too much pre-flop. If you feel you’re not going to take the pot down post flop, you can always back down. It could indicate that your opponents have a strong hand if the players after you call your raise pre-flop. You could represent a top pair hand with a bet and go for a bluff, if the flop reveals high cards.

My last lessons were talking about how patience is key and how sometimes we have to let go, so when I say be the aggressor, you may think it sounds contradictory. However, winners in PokerCC and life tend to have an aggressive mindset. Winners don’t just react to the situation, they change it. Winners like to make sure that the opposition is the one who has to make the tough decisions. In life people who push through the fear and take risks get what they want far more often than people who just wait passively for good things to happen. How can you have a relationship with that man/women if you’ve never asked them out? How can you get that promotion if you’ve never asked for it? The truth is that you can’t and won’t unless you are the aggressor.
If an Ace lands on the flop, there is a good chance someone else has one. Many players refuse to fold an ace before the flop. be very careful when bluffing against an Ace. You also wouldn’t want to bluff against a flop like 6-8-9 suited, even with an A-K because there are too many possible combinations .
Make the party fun for everyone by doing something similar to hit reality TV shows. You don’t need to keep it strict and complicated, just add some excitement by treating your guests to something totally unexpected.
