Favorable 5 Card Stud Odds
This particular trial against Cyndy Violette was an all-in wager on the highest favorable 5 card stud odds. Anyone who understands poker can easily tell that the probability of having a winning hand in 5 card stud is very low. Hence, to make a reasonable, self-correcting fold, you need to be aomer to have a better hand than the one that you are holding.
Folding a winning hand pre-flop is especially important against weaker opponents. If you consider yourself a strong player, it would be better to keep a part of the winnings for yourself. However, if you are a beginner, you are better to take the hand, unless the other players are powerful.
Stronger opponents would like to keep a lower part of the winnings for themselves. If you are on the losing end, they would try to make the game go on for as long as possible. And they are not in favor of losing their bets.
Examine the Possibility of Their Own Game Style
This was the spot where I had to admit to myself that Cyndy Violette was a much better player than I was. I suggest all other players examine the possibility of their own game style and adjust their habitual games accordingly. But, there is one simple, straightforward, game- Transition from limit to no-limit.
This no-limit game is much like the Texas limit, in reverse. There is not much space in a home game to have a max buy-in. Make do with a reasonable buy-in, but nothing never than that.
When you are first to act, you should call the blind. You can afford to do this because there is no point in seeing a cheap flop. But, once you have received 2 or 3 raises, it may be profitable to re-raise.
An Aggressive Pre-Flop Strategy
The same advice applies to post-flop play. When you are out of position, you should be prepared to either call or re-raise, depending upon the style of the players at the table. Against loose passives, you should call. Strong-tight players, you should raise. Against weak-tight players, you should limp.
This is because using an aggressive pre-flop strategy will make your post-flop decisions much easier. You will not be bluffed out of a pot. You will not be pressured to make a decision because you have a strong hand. And, you will have the ability to look at the current size of the pot, before deciding whether to play or not.
Making easy decisions to go all-in or fold should not be the goal. It should be the process of seeing a flop and being confident enough with your hand, that you can confidently make the decision to go all-in. If you are not confident, either go out and watch a table or improve your game.
But, whatever you do, don’t be anxious to make an all-in call for the sake of it, unless you have a premium hand. An all-in call is only made in a super-tight situation (a top-pair top kicker on the flop, with no possible draws).
You go All-in when You have the Best Hand
There are some other situations as well where an all-in call is justified. Against one or two players with almost nothing, you should call. Again, the idea is to slow play. Let the opponents make mistakes and lose chips. You go all-in when you have the best hand.
When you are against a small stack, you should not call but rather raise the minimum amount. Just keep in mind that you don’t want to bet less than the minimum by accident, so don’t get caught in the situation of calling all-in with Ace King under the gun.
The same advice applies to a big stack. When you’re in late position and the only hands played are big cards, you should enter with a minimum of three times the big blind.
Position is everything and it should rule your decision on whether to call all-in or not. Don’t call all-in’s when you’re in blind position because you have to enter the pot or be blinded out. Don’t call all-in’s against players who are in blind position because you have to enter the pot or be blinded out. / Dy
