Seems like most persons are generally talking about pre-flop system, so I wanted to speak a little bit about how I play after the flop. Perhaps I can support others, or possibly they have advice to enhance my play.

I consider that two of the most crucial plays after the flop are the semi-bluff and the defensive bet. That’s because these are the plays you generate whenever you havent hit a hand but you have a great drawing hand. Its easy to wager on a hand if you flop a monster. But I consider that these 2 are the greatest methods to wager on a drawing. Each one is bet depending on you competition(s) and your postion. So here is how I play it, so tell me what you think.

Early Position – Tight Opponents:

A semi-bluff works fairly nicely in this position. Come out wagering and if a tight gambler didn’t hit a hand he will probably lay down, and if he’s unsure you may have a call. But watch out, if that tight player comes back more than the best it might be time to acquire away.

Early Place – Loose Competitors

That is were I like to do a defensive wager. Choose how numerous chips you are willing to chance on your draw and wager. This is normally a much smaller wager than normal. It has been my understanding that the loose gambler will usually just call a wager rather than re-raise. Even so, in case you check to them, theyre more likely to throw in a lot more chips than your willing to pay.

Late Location – Tight Opponents

That is the greatest time to complete a semi-bluff, specifically if most of the table checks. If that’s the case you’ll probaly pick up the pot now. If a player prior to has wager, you’ve got to determine if he has a hand or not. If not, then reraise and he will possibly go away since he was attempting to steal the pot. If you imagine he does, effectively then it’s time to compute your odds, and come to a decision if the pot odds are worth the call.

Late Placement – Loose Opponents

This one can be a bit complicated, because it is harder to put a loose player on a hand. And if your in late place against loose gambler, odds are they have already wager. This really is were I usually decide to take a chance and are available back more than the best of them and pray they don’t call, and if they do, properly then its time to gamble. Odds are although even a loose gambler will go away if you arrive back strong enough.

Keep in mind though that these are moves I only produce following the flop comes and I have a reasonable drawing hand (usually not a gutshot either). Perhaps 4 to the flush or the open ended straight, for instance.
