/>No Limit Texas Holdem Poker Strategy – Say Goodbye to Limit Games and Win more Money



No limit Texas Holdem poker strategy is the key to winning big and you need to employ a very different approach to the strategy used in limit games.



Although the dynamics of the game are essentially similar, with the skill level in no limits games being higher and with the use of psychology you can win more money than in any other poker game.



Here are the fundamental differences and advantages of no limit, compared to limit Texas Holdem:



1. No Limit Texas Holdem Is a Psychological Battle



Limit Texas Holdem gives you small edges over your opponents to exploit, No limit Texas Holdem poker Poker however gives you far a far bigger edge to exploit. In limit Hold’em, “the best hand wins”.



In no limits games though, we have an intense psychological battle where you are essentially playing your opponent, NOT the cards.



It is this psychological battle that is the key one to win in no limit games. If you can do it, you will win big.



2. No Limit Texas Holdem Is a More Skilful Satisfying Game



No limit Holdem offers more tools for a skilled player to use against an unskilled opponent.



Because of the nature of a no limit game, you can use skills such as bluffing, deception and varying bet size, with far greater effect to crush your opponent than in limit games.



3. Initiative and Winning



Taking the initiative means taking control. In both limit and no limit, being on the offensive is more favourable than being the caller, as limit games put a far higher premium on initiative then limit games. The reason for this is that you can make a large bet, or raise, to take control. Because of the initiative factor, betting and raising has much more power.



4. Chip Size



In no limit Holdem, the amount of chips that a person has in front of them, is one of the largest factors affecting play against them. For example, say you have $2000 in front of you and your opponent has $300. You hold an advantage over them. However, if your opponent has $2000 dollars and you only have $300 dollars then they have the advantage.



The size of your bankroll, against your opponents, is a consideration to take into account that is not present in limit games.



5. The Odds Favour the Strong



Limit Holdem poker has very favourable odds, which means that people can call you easily. That results in people running you down with what in many instances stupid hands. This is usually because they don’t really know how to play or that the odds are favourable to do so.



In no limit, you don’t find that this happens due to higher stakes involved. Skilful players take out weak hands quickly.



6. Higher Stakes Means – Bigger Winnings



The big difference with no limit compared to limit games, (where you can make a number of errors and still come out ahead), is that no limits games are not so forgiving. If however, you know what you are doing, you can take an opponent in one hand for his entire bankroll.



No limits games favour the skilful player much more then limit ones do.



No Limit Texas Holdem Poker – Brutal and Profitable!



If you are a skilful card player, then playing No limit Texas Holdem poker strategy offers potential to make big profits.



Sure, it is a brutal unforgiving game, but it allows far more scope, in terms of strategy and gaining a psychological edge, that is just not available in limit games

Sean Moronse asked:


The poker tournament we usually see on TV is the no limit variation of Texas Holdem. It is aptly termed as no limit because a player can bet all his chips during the game play. This form of Texas Holdem is perfect for those who have mastered the game and loves taking high risks, but for those who are still learning the basics of Texas Holdem, it is wise to start with the Low Limit Texas Holdem for practice. Low Limit Texas Holdem is a form of poker which sets a bet limit for each round of the game with the limit ranging anywhere from $2 – $4.

If you want to win in Texas Holdem, you have to take note of three things – position in relation to the dealer, patience, and power. Choosing a starting hand to play with is the most important decision a poker player must make. It is very bad practice to play too many hands so better avoid doing this. The best strategy is to be patient and wait for the powerful winning hands in Texas Holdem before making your call. Since the player’s position also matters, various types of winning hands in Texas Holdem must also be played relatively.

One common mistake that novice poker player makes is holding onto the wrong set of cards instead of folding them. Thus, if you are still learning the ropes in Texas Holdem, it will be well worth it to memorize which are the winning hands in Texas Holdem.

Luck is definitely on your side if you are initially dealt with a pair of Aces, likewise known as pocket rockets, since this is the best possible starting hand. A pair of Kings and a pair of Queens are also great opening hands of Texas Holdem. An Ace and a King of similar suit is also acceptable since you can form the nut flush with ease with these cards. Likewise, an Ace and Queen with the same suit also increases the chances of you being the winner.

Other potential winning hands in Texas Holdem include a Pair of Jacks, a King and Queen of similar suit or otherwise, an Ace and a Jack, a King and a Jack, and an Ace and a Ten. You must remember though that the mentioned best opening hands will have greater chances of winning against these cards, but when played intelligently, these cards can out win the greater hands.

These are just some of the winning hands in Texas Holdem which you can play on. But possessing these hands is not a guarantee of you winning. The game of poker still relies largely on how you manage your cards and analyze your opponent’s skill. However, having the mentioned winning hands in Texas Holdem improves your chances of besting other players in the game, just make sure you do not become so obvious in ‘telling’ so that you will not fall trap to manipulative measures from your opponents and end up losing your precious bankroll.
