Poker is a game of mathematics but also a game with incomplete information. It may sound a little bit complicated but this is the truth. At the most basic level, the winning strategy in poker should always start with selecting your starting hand. If you enter the pot with a strong hand more often than your opponents, you will win more often than your opponents.
Like it or not, but Texas Hold’em is a game of chance. Each of your actions, each of the hands you play and each of the bets you are to answer are connected with the odds, probabilities and statistics.
If you are afraid of maths or you don’t like it, don’t worry. You don’t need to be an expert in maths in order to become an expert poker player, not at all. As a matter of fact, there are a lot of wonderful players who have no any idea even what a common denominator is. The strategy of Texas Hold’em is quite complex but basically the game is very simple. This simplicity is expressed in simple equations and very easy mathematical operations. Many of the things below you don’t need to understand fully, you just need to know enough to feel confident during the game.
