Beginner Online Texas Hold’em Poker Mistakes
Playing Bad Starting Hands
Playing to many hands is something that many new online poker players do. This is a result of playing with bad starting hands.
As a beginner you should take a look at a starting hand chart, this is a good way of getting familiar with what starting hands you should be playing with and in what position on the table.
Playing out of Position
If playing the right starting hands is the most important thing for a new player understanding position is the second. Many new players don’t pay attention to where they are relative to the button (the last player to act).
Make sure you know where you are on the table and if you will be betting into or having other players betting into you.
Poker is a game of patience. You can play solid poker for hours and it can take only a few hands to undue all of that good play.
New players often will get frustrated with a long string of bad cards. This is a normal part of poker, you need to be patient and wait for good cards to start coming your way.
Playing With too Much Money
A very common mistake for beginners is playing at a betting limit that their bankroll cannot support.
Even pro players have bad and good swings where they win a lot of money and lose a lot of money. If you play to high of a betting limit you just might lose all your money even if you are play solid poker.
Over Valuing Suited Hands
It can be very tempting to play suited hands even if they are not strong. Playing suited connectors can sometimes be a good idea to mixed thing up when a table has a good idea of your hand range, but playing to many lower ranking suited hands is never a good idea. The probability of flopping a flush or drawing one is only around 12 percent.
Playing to Long
This is the mistake that I made when I was just starting to play poker. Playing to many hours can give you mental fatigue and cause you to start making bad mistakes.
Taking breaks of 15 to 30 mins is a good way of preventing this. Your chips and the cards will still be there when you get back.
There are many other mistakes that both beginners and skilled players make. You will make them just pay attention and remember when you do so you can correct them the next time.
