Introduction to 3Betting

Introduction to 3Betting
The 3Bet is a term used for when you make the 3rd bet in a single round of poker (e.g. in the pre-flop or on the turn). For example 3betting pre-flop would be the same as a regular re-raise. The blinds are considered a forced bet, the open-raise is the 2nd bet and than the re-raise is the 3rd bet or “3bet”. We could go even further and make a 4bet or even 5bet (somewhat common in the high stakes $10/$20 cash games where opponents are constantly trying to out-level each other with deep stacks behind them).

The Semi-Bluff

The Semi-Bluff
The semi-bluff is one of my favourite moves in online poker because it can be used in a massive range of circumstances and boards. The difference between a semi-bluff and a pure bluff is that with a semi-bluff you still have some “outs” in case you get called by your opponent. Whilst the aim of a semi-bluff is to coerce your opponent into folding, you can also earn implied odds and other advantages from your opponent calling your semi-bluff. In other words, a semi-bluff can be +EV regardless of how your opponent reacts afterwards.

Bankroll Managing
A lot of new poker players are often confused about what their poker bankroll guidelines should be. Usually, they are shocked to find out that they need at least twenty times an entry fee in their account.

Online poker players know that large-scale MTTs (in which thousands of people play) offer the best potential ROI for disciplined and extremely deep-bankrolled players.

Poker Propping

Poker Propping
What is poker propping? Is it something you too may want to try? The online poker world has long been aware of and enjoying the benefits of rakeback. If you’re only now wondering what rakeback is, you’d do better to be a beginner, otherwise, I’ll have to tell you you’ve missed out on the bandwagon big time. Anyway, the reason I brought up rakeback is that poker propping is pretty much all about rakeback. Players who sign up as poker props do so in order to receive rake rebate deals which sometimes jump the 100% mark, effectively ending up in a zone where they basically pay props for the time they spend at the tables.

Online Bankroll Management – a Few Basic Rules

Online Bankroll Management – a Few Basic Rules
Maintaining a healthy online poker bankroll is a surprisingly difficult undertaking. With all the boasting and showboating going on in various online poker forums and message boards, one could swear that 90% of people are long-term winners online and that they’re all bankroll management specialists. The truth of the matter is though that it’s a statistical fact that around 90% of players lose money in live poker. Given the increased game-speed, the lack of live reads and the generally stiff online competition, that number may be higher online. Now then, the fact that losing players aren’t good bankroll managers doesn’t come as a surprise to anyone. After all, they’re doing things wrong, so they may as well go about bankroll management the wrong way. What IS surprising however is that in addition to the hapless masses, a large percentage of players who do win have problems with bankroll management too.
