Hand Reading for Beginners

Tags: 888poker
Posted on 10 May 2017 by "T".
Getting familiar with the types of hands your opponents could be playing is a skill that will take your game to the top. Look into your opponents' soul, read their deepest thoughts and then call that bluff!   We've all seen it (or experienced it) at some point, a player makes an inconceivable call, leaving us scratching our heads thinking: ‘WOW! How did they make that ca[...]   Read more » Hand Reading for Beginners

I find these sort of insights fascinating and i love trying to learn about them. It proves that all the top players have so many hidden talents to their game and it is frightening just how good they are

The gaming style changes with the time and so it was not easy to read a bluff only. But in the lower stakes you see a lot of players on tilt and so you have a good chance to win allin situations with the better hand. Only suckouts are a problem Blink

I too like to read souls and know what my opponents have, wiw how fun it would be to play poker when i know what opponents have, i can only dream about this, buti imagine that it is so easy to make money in this situation, but in reality we xan only guess and try to make as good guess as we can

SOME PLAYERS are so annoying or like when I have AA and flop comes A10Q2J AND THEY HAVE KK but still go all in on flop with real money sometimes stupid but they still hit and win the hand

This is true: "The better you become at hand reading, the better a poker player you will become. It can be the difference between a profitable or not so profitable session."

i think that some dudes highly overestimate their abilities at the table, namely their hand reading skills... let me get this straight- you can't read a hand, you can just think that there is a good chance that your opponents has one or other hand, but this is still not hand reading, it's just a guess, g.so let's call things the way they are- not hand reading, but hand guessing

It is not always easy to assign or narrow down the hand range of your opponents, especially if you are playing at micro stakes tables full of calling stations. They might call your 3 or 4-bet with Q3 suited, T5 suited, or whatever.

I love the skill of hand reading so much that I have been observing the higher abilities of my opponents. In one game I raised UTG with AA and this dude in MP3 came all in. I assessed that he had Ax or mid pair..... that wouldn't be too unreasonable now would it. I considered why hand he had me on as I had shown a few games previously raising with KK in MP1. So.... I went all in too and the flop came 7, K, 9. Not a particularly bad flop but dangerous in terms of my assessment that he may have mid pair! The Turn comes as a Q No harm in that card I thought! The river sails down as a 2. Still no great danger to our assessed hands but as we are all in there is no opportunity to influence the game from here!

Oh...so I forgot to mention... we obviously had turned our cards.... and he had shoved with 72o. Of course he had read me perfectly and I was a mile away as he had shoved with nothing and WON! His interpretation of my hand (nor mine of his) contributed nothing to this game.
