The countdown continues...
Here is a simple exercise to improve your game playing online poker.
Raise or Fold
Enter a MTT event online. You are going to do the following:
1. The first two rounds play tight
2. After the first two rounds, you will have the following decision pre-flop; You will raise, re-raise or fold. The only exception will be in the big blind where you may end up being in a hand when no one raises.
3. On the flop, play the player and the texture of the board.
How will this improve your game?
It show you the power of raising and re-raising.
For example, if a player raises on the cut-off (one to the right of the button) and you have pocket 6's, re-raise instead of calling or folding. If you get called, lean towards following through with a continuation bet on the flop.
You will also be surprised at how well this simple exercise works in accumulating a large stack of chips if you get a little luck in the first hour of play.
Give it a shot and it will show you the power of aggression.
