Win epic with Value Betting

The Most Important Factor In Using Good Value Betting Is That You Know How To Place Your Opponent’s Hand Range. You Need To Assess Carefully What UFABET Cards Your Opponent Is Likely To Hold. This Skill Requires A Fair Amount Of Experience And You Will Naturally Learn It After Playing Thousands Of Times. The Combination Of The Opposing Hand Range And The Use Of Value Betting Can Be Considered As Two Things That Determine Winners And Losers.

And Although I Will Tell You That This Strategy Requires A Fair Amount Of Experience. You Don’t Have To Worry. I Will Teach You To Observe And Visualize How To Bet In The River Cycle.

Example 1

In A $3-$6 No Limit Texas Holdem Game And You Have A♣ T♥ In The Button Position.

There Are 2 Players Limp Before Your Turn And You Call.

The Flop Opens To 2♣ T♠ Q♦ Everyone Checks And You Decide Bet$20 Into The $27 Pot.

Big Blind And The Other Player Fold, But The Last Player Calls.

Turn Turns To 3? And You Both Check

River Opens To 3? Your Competitors Check Again, How Do You Decide?

Let’s Try To Assess The Situation. It’s Very Unlikely Your Opponent Will Have A Q Because If So, He Probably Already Bet On The River After You Check In The Turn, But It’s Possible He Has KJ Based On The Limp Pre-. Flop Which Most People Would Probably Do, He Might Have Had Another Soft T And Kicker Like JT, T9 Or Something Like That, And He Called In The Flop Probably Because You Were The Last Person To Act And He Thought You Were Just Try To Steal Pot

In Conclusion, I Recommend You To Bet, But How Much? You’ve Accidentally Shown Weakness By Checking In The Turn And He May Call You, But If You Bet Too Much, He Might Muck. Ideally, I Advise You To Bet Half Of The Pot, Even Though It Might Be Seen. That Bluff In The Eyes Of Competitors, But It’s A Decent Amount And A Good Value Bet.


Example 2

In The $2/$4 NL Holdem Game, You Are In MD Position And Have 3 Cards A And There Is A Player In The Early Position Limp. You Decide The Limp Too, Then The Player Is Big Blind Check.

Flop Opens To 2♥ 2♣ 8♠ And All Players Check  

Turn Is Turned To T♣ And Everyone Checks Again.

River Opens To Q♥ The Player Before You Checked And Now The Pot Has $14, How Do You Decide?

You Might Have The Best Hand Right Now With Your A High, So How Much Should You Bet? You Have To Make Sure Your Opponent Has Worse Cards Than You. But Still Good Enough To Call With. The Second Best Hand In This Situation Would Be K High And Almost No Player Calls With That Hand, So You Should Check And Still Probably Win.

All In All, Concentration Is Important When Playing With Value Betting. You Have To Pay Attention To Every Situation That Arises In Each Street , Try To Take Everything Into Account To Assess Your Opponent’s Hand Range. Once You’ve Become Proficient You’ll Know Exactly How Much You Should Bet Each Time. And Ask Yourself How Much Your Competitors Would Be Happy To Pay With Their Second Best Hand.
