Hold'Em Strategy For Any Number Of Players by Hal Marcus
Poker experts recommend that you adjust your strategy at Hold’Em when the number of players’ changes, but up until now the strategies for doing this simply did not exist (to the best of my knowledge). These strategies can now easily be used by players who have the new Let’s begin by looking at some typical situations. Imagine that you’re playing online at a 10-person table and that a total of 10 people are playing — that is, 10 people are getting cards. It does not matter how many people actually call to see the Flop; since 10 people are each being dealt two cards, there are 10 players playing. On the Internet, players leave and enter tables on a regular basis. Suppose at your table someone leaves and now 9 players, instead of 10 players, are playing. A little bit later another player leaves (and no new players have come to the table), leaving a total of 8 players playing. You’ve been playing with three different numbers of players: 8, 9, and 10. Have you been adjusting the starting hands you play as the numbers of players were changing? For example, in middle position with 10 players, did you fold K8 suited? And with 8 players playing, did you Thru diligent research and reading of various books on Hold’Em, one can find material that discusses starting hands when 10 players and 9 players are playing.

The main reason the There are a number of other features of the Hold’Em cards that contribute to them being revolutionary. The strategy tables have color-coded decision cells in addition to displaying a short abbreviation for each decision (a legend below each table explains the abbreviations), so players have two different ways to read the decisions. Three strategy panels cover players in Early Position, Middle Position, and Late Position. A fourth panel, called Late Position — "Aggressive," provides an alternative to the regular Late Position strategy to allow more variation to help the player mislead his opponents. Also, each Pre-Flop strategy panel provides As an example of using the 3 red numbers, consider Card 7, which is for 7 players playing. Below the large black 7, When playing online, usually there is a choice of tables with regard to the maximum number of players that can be playing at any particular table. The most common variations of maximum number of players are 2, 6, 9, and 10. Since there is less information in the poker literature on short table play (2-6 players), with the The Hold’Em cards also contain suggestions for play on The Flop, The Turn, and The River. Some of the suggestions differ on Set II from Set I since the average winning hand is not as strong at short tables and also because people play differently at short tables compared to full tables.
