Now, the player to your left is raising his hand. He has an intermediate pair and would be called a single bet, but not cold calling a raise – a double bet. You catch your flush, and win the pot. When you pick up the Chips, he glares at you and says, “I’ll make the ship full and beat you if I stay here. Son, you’re lucky I folded. ” The Chips Rack you just won happens only because you influence luck by forcing that opponent out.
Even if you have no control over luck, you can influence it. It is important! How well you do it will make the difference between a win or lose session. Let’s illustrate this with a few examples in Texas hold’em limits: dewapoker
A somewhat similar example: Holding a Queens pocket, you raise the preflop from the starting position, hoping to dilute the field. You want to play your “made” hand against two or three players. Three opponents stand by to see the flop with you: Jd-9s-5c. Your QQ in hole is probably still the best. Already checked for you, so you bet. One opponent is calling; the other two folds. The turn is empty, but the river is Kh.
Now, you are concerned; a pair of Kings will beat your QQ. Fortunately, the remaining players didn’t have the King in the hole. Your queens-pocket wins the pot.
Again, as you stack chips, the player to your left who has folded to your preflop raise, pouts while announcing he will make a pair of Kings and beat your QQ. Your preflop improvement makes all the difference.
If you don’t raise, you’ll end up with the second best hand, and lose a lot of Chips. Again, you influence luck for your good.
