How to Raise and When to Raise

The raises that you make should not be impulsive and should have a good reason behind it. Many of the raises at poker are made under impulsion without any thoughts given to it & it afterwards leads the person into loosing out money from his overall winnings. When you play bingo online, you either have a winning card, or you don't, but poker requires a lot more skill in analyzing what course of action to take depending on which cards have been played. Raises should be carefully analyzed and should be clear enough about the main motive.

There may be a situation where you think that your hand is strong enough and you should raise but then also it has to be checked before. If you don't analyze the whole situation correctly your raise can go in vain and would let you loose money from your overall winnings.

There is some gaming information and some key factors to consider before raising which I have written below.

1.Don't raise to take revenge from your  opponent.

In the game of poker, you should not get sentimental about your beats by somebody which is a general mistake people commit. If A strikes you 100 $down and you strike  B 500 $down total profit is $400 , which is far better if you strike A $150 down and B $ 150 down (total profit is $300). It is the sum total of the profit which will add to your total winnings by the day end. So, there is hardly any reason to take revenge from A.

It is considered alright if you are raising to float a message across to your opponent so that he steps back by giving you an opportunity. There may be opponents who would not react in this manner like the people who have beaten you in the past. So you need to choose people very wisely against whom you would be playing this strategy. If you choose this theory against a person who is very aggressive then you would be left with nothing in your hand at the end of the day's play.

2.Raising from early positions is not a good decision.

You should first analyze all the possibilities tha can arise in the game before raising. Raising from early position is not a sound technique for a poker player. You should raise when you are very certain about your strong hand wherein you are 100% sure of making money.

3.Tendency of raising from late positions.

  Mostly it happens that people who loose often by playing from early positions  they have a good fortune by  playing from late positions but they  are unable apply this theory in making profits. You can very well take advantage of raising after your opponents does so. The position has to be a analyzed first whether to raise or to keep a low.

4.The prevailing  rule of edge raising choice….

You should only make raises of borderline against the not so courageous opponents and you need to check the probability beforehand of getting the position or not. You can raise and get profits only against the not so courageous opponents.
