Example text

Your opponent makes a continuation bet. If he is competent, he will bet his entire range on this flop, representing an overpair. If you call and your opponent has a weak hand, his turn check will let you know that. If he bets again, he probably does have the overpair and you can fold. If you raise, he will fold all his weak hands and probably call or push the strong ones. This is a spot where raising makes sense, as long as you are deep-stacked. An amateur may look at this hand and think, “He raises pre-flop, and so I put him on A-K.

Your eyes should be on first prize, not getting a little money back. Poker tournaments are also profitable because they draw a huge number of relatively inexperienced players. If you are playing a high-stakes cash game, usually there are one or two weak players at the table. In a high-stakes tournament, there could easily be five or six weak players at every table. Amateur players are considered weak, but so are some professionals. Most cash-game players only know how to play with deep stacks. They lose a lot of equity in the late stages of a tournament by failing to go all-in optimally.
