Most Common Pre-flop Mistakes To Avoid in 2021
In today’s article, we have prepared for you Top 5 most common Pre-Flop mistakes that most beginner poker players make. Whether you play Multi-Level Tournaments or Cash Games, mistakes are the same.
We will start here that each poker hand is like a fairy tale, have a beginning, a middle, and an end. As with fairy tales, if the beginning of the story itself is not worth it, you will hardly read it to the end. So making mistakes pre-flop leads to other ones Post-flop.
We can say for sure that if you do not make these mistakes, your life at the poker tables will be much easier and more enjoyable.
We will start with one of the most significant mistakes Pre-flop.
Lack of a Pre-flop Plan
The first step to being a Winning Poker Player is to have a clear and well-developed pre-flop strategy before you start playing.
Before each session, make sure you have the answers to some of the following questions
What hands will you play from each position?
What hands will you pay if someone raises your bet?
What hands do you have to pay or raise against other players’ raises and many other factors?
Most of you don’t have the answers to these questions, this costs money for most of you.
Try a little before each session to answer these questions, take notes for opponents, put colored markers on different types of players. If you find these things difficult, you can read a little more in our article.
The choice of limping strategy
Limping is when all the players have thrown their cards to you and you only pay the amount equal to the big blind, every next player who only pays this amount is called an over limp.
Limping is one of the worst possible strategies you can choose.
Unlike the Raising strategy, limping is a passive strategy that deprives you of the immediate opportunity to win the pot and the obligatory paid or so-called dead money from the small and big blinds.
With the limping strategy, you encourage your opponents to limp. They have a better price or, in the worst case, to raise because in most cases they will play you in a position against your weak range of cards.
The choice of limping strategy puts us in an unpleasant situation for us most cases to participate with 2 or more opponents in the hand.
The more players involved in the hand, the less equity have our hand.
From which position do we play
Another serious mistake Pre-flop is that players do not comply with the position they play and what cards they play from it.
The position you are in is closely related to the range of cards you need to play.
The earlier you are in position, the tighter range of cards you need to open.
This is because the possibility of facing a strong hand increases with each player behind you. You will also play out of position and this will lead to difficult decisions
Lack OF Aggression
If you are not aggressive in modern poker, it would be difficult to be a winning player.
When we say aggressive, we mean reasonable in the right situations.
Perhaps more of you have heard the expression 3-bet for those of you who are not 3-bet it is used when one of your opponents before you raises and you reraise his bet.
In most cases, the amount of 3-bet is between 3 to 4 times the opponent’s bet, depending on the size of the stacks and positions.
It is most often used from the blinds in stealing situations.
3-bet is a weapon that is an essential part of every poker player’s arsenal. With 3-bet, players exploit the weak ranges from the late positions and people who use limping strategy.
If you do not feel confident in the ranges of cards you have to play from certain positions, we advise you to limit yourself to aggression until you feel really ready. The stronger this weapon is, the more destructive it can be and it can cost you extremely much.
Learn to fold your hands.
When you play with passive opponents who just call all the time, and at some point start raising from nowhere, the red light should come on right now and you should fold a lot and even some of your strong hands.
Last but not least, don’t get stuck with the hands, learn to pass them on.
Do not bluff especially at low levels. If you read correctly, DO NOT BLUFF, in fact, bet when you have and give up when you do not. Of course, this is not an option when you go up to the stakes, but then you will be aware of most of the complexities, and when and where you can bluff until then, you have hand play, you don’t have hand fold is simple.
In summary, it all comes down to the Pre-Flop Ranges that you play.
To be disciplined, and to work hard on your game.
