    I have to say that I am a big pocket pair man. If I get pockets that pot is going up big time before the flop. You have to try your best to run the sraight and flush draws out before they hit.

    Post Re: Do you Hold'em?

    You talking no-limit or a 2/4 or a 3/6 game?
    For these smaller-limit tables:
    1. Suited connectors are not going to leave pre-flop. You can make some of them hurt by raising, but once someone's in, they're pretty much "pot-committed."
    2. But if you don't pair-up (or in the case of pocket pairs, not make a set and see a higher card than your pair), and if there are flush/straight draws on the flop, it would be best to fold instead of paying.
    3. If a pair flops on the board or anytime on the board, be prepared for a full-house (or four of a kind -- I saw it recently) winning the hand.

    For no-limit, a good 3-times-the-pot-or-big-blind bet is the way to go. But, you might want to mix it up a bit. Whatever your strategy is, you need to be able to camoflage it, or be ready to change from conservative to aggressive from time to time.

    In all cases, you must think of what can possibly beat your hand (or how many ways your hand can be beat), based on what you know about your opponents and how they're betting. And combining this information with current pot size versus the cost to call a bet.

    Re: Do you Hold'em?

    I don't know if I would devote my love to any one hand.
    For the price of a big-blind, I'll play suiteds or connectors.

    Are you doing home tourneys or going out to the casinos?

    Thumbs up Re: Do you Hold'em?

    I do not play the game, but I really like to watch it on television. You can usually find Poker on the Travel channel or ESPN. We first started watching it, when Chris Moneymaker won big. My husband got me hooked. I nicknamed it "Garbage Poker", because you can win, with nothing. Good betting sometimes wins instead of good cards.

    If the television is on, I look for poker to watch. I have favorite players I like. I always root for the ladies. I like Daniel N?????? Not sure how to spell or pronounce his name. Doyle Brunson, I root for him. The guy named Scotty. I root for Kathy Liebert. Don't care for the poker brat. Names are leaving me, and I just see faces. Phil Ivy is a popular one, but he never seems to win.

    The men like the ladies, who bring in the money.

    I have a video game for Play Station, that is kind of fun. Another one for Game Boy Advance. I am not very good, but it passes some time enjoyably.

    I drive my husband crazy, when I play the video game, he says I bet all wrong. I don't really understand it completely.

    So Texas Hold Em - Great entertainmet in our house.

    I host a home tourney two nights a weeks for a ten dollar buy in. There is usually about 8-10 ppl there. I also go to a big home tourney on Fri nights. Its a Fifteen buy-in.

    I pretty much break even. I mostly play for the fun and fellowship.

    P.S. 6 9 off-suit I have won many a hands with those cards. Most of the time catching at least two-pair. I have boated up with it plenty though.

    Re: Do you Hold'em?

    7 Card-Stud fan myself. Hold 'em is too much luck. I understand that makes it exciting, but 7 Stud is still played, and has more skill. Omaha is my fav. to play, but very few actually play it.

    I see Omaha as requiring four times as much luck.
    I usually deal stud at the dealer's choice games I go to. No wild, no buy-a-card, no follow the queen, etc. Just straight.
