General Strategies and Approaches for Casino Poker
A lot of Australian players like to take a break from the pokies to play table games, and many of these table games fall under the Casino Poker genre. What’s interesting about this genre is that the individual games can vary wildly in terms of what types of rules are involved, but certain general strategies remain the same. If you take advantage of these general strategies, you can come into almost any form of casino poker and do decently well at it even if you’ve never played it before. Here we’re going to cover some of the general thought processes that dominate correct strategy in these games.
Casino poker is a game of information. You want to get as much information as you can and then use that information to make the best decision possible. There are two primary sources of information that you’ll have in any casino poker game. The first piece of information, and the most important, is the value of your own hand. The second piece of information is the value of any dealer cards that you can see. There’s a process you can follow that will help you to make the most out of all of this information.
The cards that you hold will dominate how you play your hand in the vast majority of situations in the vast majority of games. You’ll take into account your hand, the payout structures and how the opponent has to qualify to decide whether to play your hand or fold. If you have marginal situations that can go either way, that’s when you’ll take into account the dealer’s cards if any are showing. The reason for this is that the card removal aspects of the situation and the chances of the dealer having specific hands based on one card aren’t all that important compared to the actual cards that are in your own hand.
If you want to get your feet wet with these games, then the best two games to start with are three card poker and Caribbean stud. These games will introduce you to simple strategies that are effective enough to allow you to play really well inside of a short period of time. From there, you can move to more advanced forms of casino poker like Caribbean draw, Oasis Poker and Let It Ride.
