Value Betting in Poker

A value bet in Poker is something that you would make when you are planning to be called. Betting as much money as possible while still getting a call would be a value bet. They are used when you have a good hand that you are sure will be a winner. It is one way to maximize your profits, which is very important. Every time you make extra money from a hand, you will be increasing your profits.

What is the best time for Value Betting?

The best time for value betting is when you have a strong hand. A lot of players use “slow play” when they have a strong hand. Although, slow playing a hand is surely a good way to make the most amount of money; there are other times when a value bet is going to get you a handsome amount. A value bet will often end up with an “All-in” towards the end of the hand on the river. At the time of making your first value bet, you may think you want more money in that pot. Remember that it is a process that will lead to more money going into that pot later on in the hand. As long as you believe a value bet will lead to the most amount of money, you will want to make that choice. Keep in mind that you will have several chances to make value bets. As you progress through the hand, a proper value bet will continue to get bigger.

Another important factor in making good value bets is to be good at putting opponents on hands. You have to be pretty sure of what your opponent is holding and then act accordingly to that. This skill takes a lot of practice and comes naturally after playing many thousands of hands. Putting opponents on hands and make value bets are two things that often separate winning players from the losing players.

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

Contrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not simply random text. It has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC, making it over 2000 years old. Richard McClintock, a Latin professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words, consectetur, from a Lorem Ipsum passage, and going through the cites of the word in classical literature, discovered the undoubtable source. Lorem Ipsum comes from sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 of "de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum" (The Extremes of Good and Evil) by Cicero, written in 45 BC. This book is a treatise on the theory of ethics, very popular during the Renaissance. The first line of Lorem Ipsum, "Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet..", comes from a line in section 1.10.32.
