Seems like most folks are generally talking about pre-flop system, so I wanted to speak a bit about how I play after the flop. Maybe I can aid others, or perhaps they have advice to enhance my play.

I feel that two of the most critical plays soon after the flop are the semi-bluff and the defensive wager. Which is because these are the plays you produce whenever you havent hit a hand except you might have a great drawing hand. Its easy to play a hand when you flop a monster. Except I consider that these two are the finest methods to play a drawing. Each one is played depending on you opponent(s) and your postion. So here is how I bet on it, so tell me what you think.

Early Place – Tight Competitors:

A semi-bluff works fairly properly in this position. Appear out wagering and if a tight gambler didn’t hit a hand he’ll most likely lay down, and if he’s unsure you may perhaps have a call. But watch out, if that tight player comes back over the best it may possibly be time to obtain away.

Early Place – Loose Opponents

That is had been I like to try and do a defensive bet. Determine how several chips you’re willing to chance on your draw and wager. That is usually a much smaller bet than regular. It has been my understanding that the loose gambler will usually just call a wager rather than re-raise. Nonetheless, in case you check to them, theyre additional likely to throw in more chips than your willing to pay.

Late Position – Tight Competitors

This can be the greatest time to try and do a semi-bluff, specifically if most of the table checks. If that is the case you will probaly pick up the pot now. If a player before has wager, you have to make a decision if he has a hand or not. If not, then reraise and he’ll most likely go away since he was attempting to steal the pot. In case you think he does, well then it is time to calculate your odds, and decide if the pot odds are worth the call.

Late Position – Loose Opponents

This one is often a bit complicated, simply because it’s more difficult to put a loose player on a hand. And if your in late place against loose gambler, chances are they have already bet. This is were I usually make a decision to take a chance and arrive back over the top of them and hope they do not call, and if they do, effectively then its time to gamble. Odds are although even a loose player will go away when you arrive back strong enough.

Don’t forget though that these are moves I only produce soon after the flop comes and I have a decent drawing hand (usually not a gutshot either). Perhaps 4 to the flush or the open ended straight, for example.
