I learned how to play about three months ago and started playing with my friends about six weeks ago. We play on Wednesday and Sundays and we usually have about eight players and each person pays twenty dollars and gets twenty dollars in chips.
I’ve won twice since I started playing and the most I’ve won is one hundred and ninety dollars with three persons re-buying at ten dollars each. Anyways, what strategies do you guys use? For instance, are you an aggressive or conservative player. In my case, I tend to be conservative in the beginning and then more aggressive when there are about four players left. Do you guys calculate pot odds and if so, how do you do it. What about cards, which ones do you play and in what position in the table. Has anyone purchased any books and if so, which ones would you recommend.
I have one titled Winners Guide to Texas Hold’em Poker by Ken Warren and it has help so far. Alright, lets discuss some poker strategies.
