  • Home on (to) the Range

    When playing a hand in poker, amongst the myriad of considerations to consider is how to keep weaker hands from folding. The biggest pots are usually the ones where there is a showdown, and the only way to win a showdown is to be against weaker cards when the betting is done and its time to expose the hands. Oftentimes, as a newer or even intermediate player, when you reach showdown against a weaker hand, thus taking the pot, it is somewhat unintentional. Sure, you want to win the pot and you play with that in mind, but are you consciously trying to keep weaker hands in the pot? By tweaking your game slightly, you may be able to do just that, giving you more winning showdowns and more huge pots.
