As anyone who’s played Hold ‘Em knows, one of the toughest places to be in the best online gambling website (website judi online terbaik) is on the river. Most hands are over before then, and a lot of players find themselves in unfamiliar waters when they get there. Betting the river can be a tough decision.
To illustrate a river concept, I’d like to show an example from 7-card stud. Pretend you have six cards, with one more left to come. At present you have 2 (unimportant) cards face-down, but you’re showing your opponent 9999, face up.
Your opponent is showing a 7, a 2, and the 4 and 5 of spades. He also has two unknown, face-down cards, with one left to come.
You bet, he stays in. The last cards are dealt. Your opponent is first to act and, after looking at his last card, he checks to you.
Should you bet your four-of-a kind?
I have a friend that’s played trusted online malaysia casino for years, and he still can’t get this concept right. The answer is: NO! No, no, NO! As I love repeating to my friend, only an idiot would bet here.
Let me put it more simply: if you have 4 nines, and your opponent KNOWS that you have 4 nines, he will call you ONLY WHEN HE HAS YOU BEAT. Since he stayed in to see the last card, he must have had a chance to beat your 4 nines – they were already staring him in the face. The only possible hand he could’ve been going for then, is a straight flush in spades (he had, for instance, a 23 of spades in the hole and needed the last card to be the 6 of spades.)
