Texas Holdem Strategy

Introduction to Holdem
The objective of this guide is to teach you the principles of Texas Holdem poker. From mechanics to starting hand selection, we will cover the necessary poker strategy and tips to help you win.

Make it your goal to develop a thorough strategy to success. Visit the Pot Odds section for assistance with calculating pot odds, and further your poker strategy by learning how to bluff. Understand the different types of holdem and select one that is best for you.

There are three types of Texas Holdem:
-Limit Holdem:
Specific betting limits in each game and in each round of betting.
-Pot Limit Holdem: A player can bet what is in the pot.
-No Limit Holdem: A player can bet all chips at any time.

The Button
The dealer is a professional or computer at online poker tables. The button moves clockwise around the table after each hand. Players on the button receive their cards last and bet last in each round. Stay aware of the button's location for positional strategy. This presents opportunity, because the later you bet, the larger a strategic advantage against opponents.

The Blinds
Texas Holdem uses blinds. The first two players to the left of the dealer button post a small and big blind. Big blinds are equal to the lower betting limit, while the small blind is half of the big blind. For instance, in 10/20 games, the big blind equals $10.00 and the small blind is $5.00.

Pocket Card Selection
Patience is a virtue in poker. Weak hands will generally become weaker. However, good starting hands can be capitalized upon, because they become stronger. For examples of appropriate poker hands, proceed to the next section and also review the beginner's Top Hands.
