How to Win at Texas Hold’em | Poker Tip #17 | How to Spot a Monster

Texas Holdem Tips Video Source & Information:

If someone calls your bet on the flop on a wet board, be wary. A good player won’t call with air or two overs on a wet board. In fact, a good player will often raise if they have the nut flush draw. Some players will raise in this spot on any flush draw.

They know you accumulate more chips by betting prior to hitting your draw. If you bet after you hit your draw, your opponent is less likely to call. If they just flat your bet, they might already have a monster, such as two pair or a set.

You will have more information on the turn. An amateur player will almost always call with a flush or straight draw on the flop. If the turn is a card that would make a flush for your opponent, place a value bet.

You don’t want to place a big bet because you could be unnecessarily wasting chips. You can find out the answer for a smaller price. A good player will fold here if they don’t have the flush.

If they call or raise, fold. If it’s an amateur player, they will likely call because they’re trying to trap you. If they raise, they have it. Either way, you don’t want to check if you’re first to act because it indicates weakness.

This opens the door for your opponent to bet, and now you won’t know if they’re just betting because you showed weakness. If you have top pair, or even two pair, it’s going to be a tough decision and might even cost you more chips.

Betting out in spots like this can actually save you chips. If you have a great read on your opponent and know they hit the flush, fold.
