Every poker player wishes he or she could have better luck – good luck. Let the opponent (“enemy”) have bad luck. “Luck” is just a matter of chance. You never know what cards will be given to you and your opponent, or what the dealer will place on the board. You have no control over it.
Even if you have no control over luck, you can influence it. It is important! How well you do it will make the difference between a win or lose session. Let’s illustrate this with some examples on Texas hold’em limits visit Agenpoker303.
Have you ever lifted the flop with a drawing tool like the four-to-an-Ace-high-flush with at least nine good outs? Chances of your cards are only 1.86-to-1 against making a big flush. In this case, three (or more) opponents go limp to see a turn. You are raising. After investing one bet, they’ll usually call your raise for one more small bet. With a 3-to-1 (or higher) money chance on that increment, you have Positive Expectations (the odds of money are higher than the odds the card has against you).
Now, the player to your left is raising his hand. He has an intermediate pair and would be called a single bet, but not cold call raise – a double bet. You catch your flush, and win the pot. When you take the chips, he glares at you and says, “I’ll make the ship full and beat you if I stay here. Son, you’re lucky I folded. ” The chip rack you have just won occurs only because you influence luck by forcing that opponent out.
A somewhat similar example: Holding a Queens pocket, you raise the preflop from the starting position, hoping to dilute the field. You want to play your “made” hand against two or three players. Three opponents stand by to see the flop with you: Jd-9s-5c. Your QQ in hole is probably still the best. Already checked for you, so you bet. One opponent is calling; the other two folds. The turn is empty, but the river is Kh.
