Similar advantage can be also achieved in poker. To the position advantage in poker we can refer the factors of your position with relation to your opponents, the availability of varied membership and the number of opponents continuing the tournament, your aggression, the size of opponents’ stacks and so on. There are also some other factors that will determine your position advantage over your opponents and they are involving the available chips, the image of yours and your opponents’ hands, opponent’s played hands, and so on.
Now it can be established what the factors important in mega88 are and the way to act is clear. Let’s take a look at the fifth and the seventh factors of your position in poker: the availability of varied membership and the number of competitors continuing the tournament. In the latter case, if you are in an early position, you have to be cautious in letting other people past since you still need to close the deal with them. In the former case, if you are seeking an early position, you can move all in quicker than the others. You are likely to have a better hand than them. In any case, the result is that you move all in and they have to call a blind or fold. Here the issue of your hand and the number of players is critical. You move all in and they call and the result is that you take the pot and they don’t. In the first case, you need to have more chips than them. In the latter case, you need to let them build the pot for you.
To understand the answer to the question as to what to do in a particular situation, take a close look at the last hand or at least at the last one that you played, on a free poker site. Observe if several players folded and when two players remained in the game, one of them is going all-in. Keep track of the other players’ actions and add them up. The number tells you the player’s position (beginning, middle and end) and if he played operation (call, raise or fold).
If several players are gone in the game, you can assume that the play is rather loose. If several players remain, the game is rather tight. So you can assume the tight player is the player that needs a lot of starting capital. He plays relatively few hands preflop. When he does play a hand, he bets aggressively. If several players are involved in the same pot, an all-in move is quite common. When you see several players go all-in, it means this one is rather loose.
If you see a flop with several players going all-in, it means that a lot of chips are in the pot. People are not afraid of going all-in at this time since they have a lot of chips. Tight players will fold rather than let themselves vulnerable. If you have some hands, you can play them. If you don’t have any hands, you can fold. Play your hand then go all-in. If you lose, go away and if you win, come back another time.
By observing your opponents, you can make some simple conclusions. If many opponents go all-in, it means that a lot of other players have confidence in the hand of their opponents, not to forget that a loose game also means a lot of players are in the pot. If several players are calling all-in at the beginning, you can play rather safe. Hence if you have some hands, you can play them, else you loose your composure and fold rather preflop.
If you win a rather small pot, you can play aggressively and not afraid of losing your chips. If you win a rather large pot, you can play even more aggressively. When you see a player win a really big pot, it usually means he had a great hand. You can play even if you don’t have any hands, since you can always get lucky. Luck is not for everyone, but for those who work at it, it’s all a matter of time. They can’t control what happens outside of them, so they have to wait it out.
