Winning at Texas Holdem’
Winning at Texas Holdem’ – Betting Nobody is always a winner, and anybody who says he is, is either a liar or doesn’t play poker.
— Amarillo Slim
A bet is a declaration that either:
a)”I have the best hand and I’ll wager money on it” or
b)”You have a poor hand, and you will fold if you are forced to wager on it”
Typically, players are supposed to bet when they have a good hand. Players who don’t have good hands are supposed to fold. Of course, if it was this simple, there would be no need for this book.
