The tight-aggressive strategy
The tight-aggressive strategy for No-Limit Hold’em is the most profitable style of playing. It’s based on three principles:
- YOU PLAY TIGHT POKER
don‘t play everything that falls into your hands.
After the flop you don’t need to see every showdown simply because you have a pair. Knowing when you are beat or when the price is too high can save you a lot of money.
- YOU PLAY AGGRESSIVE POKER
You don‘t want to be the one to just call, i.e. the one who just goes along with the bets, without betting or raising yourself.
- YOU PLAY POSITION
If your opponents have to act before you in a given betting round, you have position on them. If they have the luxury of getting to act after you, they have position on you.
Whenever an opponent has to act before you, you have the distinct advantage of being able to observe their move, before needing to act yourself. You are therefore in an advantageous position in terms of the information you have, and in this game, information is a valuable commodity. In addition to this it is also possible to make more profitable moves when playing in position.
