Weak opponents usually fold. If you called a raise out of position with 65s and the flop comes down A-x-x and you didn’t connect, a strong play is to float a flop bet and lead out on the turn. This is a trend we see good players following more and more frequently. It’s a strong deceptive line. Counterbalancing it by sometimes playing top pair, two pair, and sets similarly keeps your opponents off balance and guessing. Hand Example 5 ElkY at EPT Deauville 2010 It’s Day 3.

In the early going, it’s critical to identify and characterize each of the players at your table. Important variables include the number of hands each player is involved in; whether they limp in or bring it in with a raise; the frequency with which they re-raise an initial raiser (3-bet) both in and out of position; how they respond when they’re 3-bet; whether they 4-bet and if so, with what hands; whether they often call a raise pre-flop, then check/fold on the flop, etc.

Finally, Farha found a hand he was willing to play (AQ) and called Seed’s push. Seed was dominated, holding A3, but got lucky and won that hand and went on to win the match and ultimately the title. Showing hands is generally counterproductive, but showing big folds to a LAG is downright suicidal! Identifying and Exploiting Weaknesses and Tendencies Identifying a player’s weaknesses in order to exploit them is one of the most important aspects in poker; all of the authors’ games revolve around this important concept.
