A recent novelty for poker in Italy is given by the new decree that allows you to play online cash games allow you to sit at a table, bet real money with each hand, and withdraw when you want instead of waiting for the prizes, with a maximum limit of 1,000 euros per game session.
Therefore, in addition to the mandatory invitation to play responsibly, to maintain control and not to exceed the amounts wagered, it is useful to go over some practical tips to better face Texas Hold’Em cash: a game mode, at least for Italian poker rooms, relatively new.
First tip: where to sit?
Let’s start with a piece of advice that begins before taking the cards – at least virtually – in hand: the choice of table. And yes, because, unlike live poker, in which you will never know, if not summarily and by direct observation, how the game evolves at a given table, the question changes online, and a lot. Thanks to the overall view offered by the lobby of your favorite poker room, you will have before you a wide selection of cash tables with the indication, in addition to the size of the blinds (which, unlike tournaments, always remain fixed), of very useful statistics like the stack of players, the flops that are generally seen, the amount of the average pot.
Second tip: patience is the virtue of the strong
If in tournaments the increase in blinds forces you, sooner or later, to come into play even with excellent cards, in the cash game the blinds always remain fixed. This means that if you don’t get caught up in the heat of the game and learns to wait, you will have the luxury of playing only with really important cards.
