Not here. Not in this close-knit community.
Not here. Not in this small city with many colleges.
Not here. Not where our Department of Public Service are never called cops.
Not here. Not where neighbors know their neighbors.
Not here. Not where you’re unafraid to walk any street.
Not here. Not where city living is like living in a park.
Not here. Not where lovers actually walk down Lover’s Lane.
Not here. Not where fathers take sons and stroll the pickup isles.
Not here. Not where senior women can share a girls night out.
Not here. Not where tweens babysit a houseful of youngers.
Not here. It’ll never happen here. Those things are reserved for the large cities with their broken down neighborhoods full of broken down homes.
For we are Kalamazoo. And we will not be afraid.
Our spirit remains unchallenged. We are Kalamazoo Strong.

Texas Holdem Tournament Theories and Strategies – Demystified by CL RobertsKnow Why You Bet

by CL Roberts
Published on: May 28, 2014

I’m a huge observer of other’s play. The one thing that amazes me most about some players is, they just play.

By that I mean, they don’t always think about why they’re making a bet. At least they don’t think it all the way through.

As I always say – This game is simple!

You bet for one of two reasons.

  1. You bet in hopes of getting called.
  2. You bet in hopes of everyone folding.

That’s it. The problem for some players is, they don’t know why they’re betting. Sure, they may actually be thinking, “If I bet this amount, they’ll fold”. But have they really thought that through? Maybe they’re on the fence and think, “If I bet this amount, they’ll fold. But if they don’t fold, I get to see another card.”

That works if you actually wanted to get called. But you didn’t really. If you get called when you want them to fold, you didn’t bet enough or you underestimated the strength of your opponent’s hand. Either way, you’re in trouble the rest of the hand.

So this is my random short advice article for today.

Know why you’re betting. This game is simple! But you can make it a lot harder on yourself by not knowing why you’re making the bet you’re making.

Texas Holdem Tournament Theories and Strategies – Demystified by CL RobertsIt’s OK to FOLD

by CL Roberts
Published on: April 12, 2014

I devoted an entire section of my Texas Holdem Tournament Theories and Strategies – Demystified book to the art of folding.

I’m not going to include it all here, I simply want you to understand one thing.

It’s OK to fold

It’s not shameful. It’s not a sign of defeat. It’s not something to ignore for the sake of ignoring it. It’s a way to make sure you get paid.

That is all I have to say about it at the moment. Even if you believe in your heart of hearts that you have a better hand, sometimes it’s best to fold to ensure you’re one of the few that get paid.

I’m going to be posting snippets from my books. Just some little nuggets that will help you win more Texas Holdem tournaments.

OK – Win may be a bit too optimistic term. Let’s use “place in the money” instead. For that’s always my goal – to get paid. If you follow my advice you’ll often get to the final table and be among those that get paid.

So my first piece of free advice is my number one rule when it comes to getting paid in Texas Holdem tournaments.

Never put all your chips in a pot unless you know for a fact that you’re getting them back. If you go on feelings, percentages, hunches, or anything other than fact; you lessen your chances on making money.

I say in my books, “I’m not here to teach you to gamble. I’m here to help you earn money playing Texas Holdem tournaments.” And if you follow this one simple rule you’ll do just that.

It takes patience and discipline to play by this rule. Face it, most poker players gamble. But that’s your advantage. You wait until you’re unbeatable and hope a gambler calls you. And here’s a news flash for you — Gamblers like to gamble!

Of course, that means there’s going to be the suckouts that hold 2/7 and flop 2/7 against your A/A. But that’s poker. And that’s why we never put all our chips in a pot unless we know for a fact that we’re getting them back.

I’m not sure if this will be a weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly series. But I will be posting these little tips every so often so you don’t have to wait for the release of the next book. Besides – I like talking poker (but never at the table).

Thanks to all those who participated in my Freeday Friday yesterday!

Hope everyone has a satisfying weekend!

You don’t have to have fun. It doesn’t have to be great. Simply strive for satisfaction. Not because it’s an easily attainable goal, but because it’s a goal we should always look forward to.

If at the end of the day we’re satisfied, how much better does life need to be?

Thanks again for your support. And I hope to see all your friends and relatives at the next Freeday Friday.
