Here’s a guess post from my friend Allen.
It is important to consider some important pre flop strategies before you start betting in texas holdem.
The number of players in a texas holdem game constitutes the first important factor. With more players, be cautious, as the chances of someone else having a strong hand are very likely.
Another aspect in pre flop strategy is betting aggressively. If one player is raising every hand pre-flop, you’ll want to play tighter.
While playing texas holdem poker, you have to consider your bankroll. If you only have $2, then select you have a tough time having many buy-ins because the lowest buy-in table at most sites is $0.01/0.02 and you have just a buy-in for that, but then again, if you only have $2 I think you’re playing mostly for fun so jump right in and have fun .
With a larger bankroll, you can afford to take higher risks. Moreover, if you are in late position, you are able to influence the size of the pot considerably.
Your pre flop strategy will also determine your style of play; you may want to play more or less aggressively pre-flop depending on the table.
