Tourney Strategy: The Stop-and-Go


Being short-stacked in a no-limit hold'em tournament is never ideal, whether during the early, middle, or late stages. Whereas a big stack affords you a wide range of options both before and after the flop,...

Taking Hands Off

After winning a big pot, some players will instinctively fold the next hand or two.

Say you're in a no-limit hold'em cash game. After struggling for most of the session, you've just won a nice pot and now suddenly you're back in black. The next hand has begun, it folds...

Light Three-Betting in No-Limit Hold'em

The decision to three-bet light often has more to do with your opponent, position, and stack sizes than with the cards you're dealt.

Once upon a time a preflop three-bet -- that is, a reraise over an opening raise -- was an unmistakable signal of strength in no-limit hold'em. When it came to preflop play, the vast majority...

There's a new game debuting on Betfair Poker this week called Push 'em, a variant designed to provide action in a hurry. A no-limit hold'em cash game, Push 'em requires players to buy in for...

Single-Suited Flops in No-Limit Hold'em

A flop consisting of three cards of the same suit comes a little over 5% of the time.

It happens more often than you might think in no-limit hold'em -- a flop containing three cards of the same suit. About once every 19 hands or so (a little over 5% of the time),...

The Squeeze Play

A well-planned squeeze play can put your opponents in a painful spot.

The term "squeeze play" is sometimes used loosely to describe all sorts of situations in "big bet" games like no-limit hold'em and pot-limit Omaha in which a player exerts pressure on another with a hefty...

Opening Raise Sizes with Premium Hands

Some players instinctively want to raise more before the flop with pocket aces than they would otherwise, which may or may not be a good instinct depending on the game.

I recently reviewed Nathan Williams' Crushing the Microstakes and interviewed Williams as well. As the title suggests, the book focuses on the lowest-limit games, with Williams' concentrating primarily on NL2 and NL5 full ring no-limit...
