View Full Version : Yahoo Hold 'em

I have been playing Yahoo Hold'em. Since it is not real $, people fold less. I thought a good strategy is to be patient; only go in when you have good pocket cards, and you will be rewarded better. However, I have found that JJ, QQ, KK hands are no bargain, since with five other players staying until the end, someone winds up pulling a straight or a flush, or two pair. Is there a better strategy, such as always stay in for the flop?

See as many flops as possible cheaply, one BB. Go all-in when you hit the nuts on the flop.

Stay in with suited aces, suited kings, suited connectors, even suited 1 gappers are good too.. Pocket pairs are good if you can make a full house out of them, a set is prolly the minimum required. Depending on the action it might even be worth it to stay in on the flop if you have a backdoor straight and a backdoor flush draw. or a inside straight and backdoor flush.

Thanks. FYI - The game is limit hold'em -- the aggregate raises per round are $10, $12, $20, $20. You get a pretend $1,000 to start, and you can still play if you go negative. I recommend it for a beginner, though I haven't been on any other sites.

I've noticed that low limit hold'em games somewhat mirror play money games, although the play money tables will always be much looser. You could try reading Winning Low Limit Hold'Em by Jones.
Actually, the bigggest difference I've noticed between play and real money low limit: there are far fewer people at the play money tables thinking about what your cards are.
