    Tips on How to Play KK and AA Starting Combinations on No Limit Hold’em Tables with Small Buy-ins.

    AA and KK are the best starting combinations in texas holdem. According to statistics, these are the most profitable combinations. That is why a player with these hands on the preflop looks forward to getting a good win. This is the main problem with these hands, because it is always very difficult to fold hands like these even when a player realizes that he will probably lose. A typical mistake for new players is getting into the game without a raise with AA and KK. The player doesn’t usually fold easily and lose much. Don’t be discouraged if you win just a small amount with this hand. This can occur often, but you should be afraid of losing a lot. This is common when you just take blinds with AA or KK. Also it is important to note that you should try to play against at least one or two opponents on the flop. AA and KK are just a pairs and there are many stronger combinations.

    Micro Limit Games – Turn and River

    A turn is the most important stage in taking control of the bank. It is when you must make the important decision as to whether you will increase the size of the bank based on a strong poker hand or call the bet on a weaker hand. If you are hoping to draw a combination, you will want to make seeing the river as inexpensive as possible. Mind that if there are many players in the pot you may increase it having even not complete combination. Though, that is quite difficult for newer players to do.

    In most cases, a player on the turn should clearly plan what he will do on the river. That is why, when playing the turn, it is best to think about all the possible plays your opponent could make in various situations from the beginning of the game to the end.

    This guide will go over different situations and explain what a suggested play would be.

    Micro Limit Games – Flop Strategy

    A flop is the most important part of a game as very serious decisions are made at this time. Five cards are already known and now you may decide either to stay in the game or check-fold. Bets are still not very high at the flop. Playing correctly will help you judge your position correctly. You will also be able to get a great deal of information about your contenders’ hands and make an approximate plan for playing on a turn and a river. Playing incorrectly at this stage can cause many problems later on. If you want a big win, follow this advice.

    Micro Limit Games – Pre-flop Strategy

    We will describe the pre-flop game strategy on full-hand tables (10max) here.

    Micro limit games (~0.02/0.04) have some peculiarities in comparison to a game with higher limits. You will find the highest ratio of an average bank size to a big blind size here. This means that the highest percent of drawn combinations are paid-out. Contenders play very freely and lose their stacks easily. The best strategy for this game will be a reliable tight play if you are a new player. Of course, that strategy is not very profitable, but a new player would fare better playing this way. You shouldn’t play weak hands which may cause difficulties when you play the post-flop.

    Micro Limit Poker – Introduction

    The articles about micro limit poker are published on this site to teach new players how to play for cash. The second goal of these articles is to help a player save some starting capital after winning a freeroll, a small deposit or a no deposit bonus.

    After your first win in a freeroll, try to increase this amount by playing for cash at the cheapest tables a poker room can offer. The most important thing in playing on these tables, is not the amount you win, but how easy it can be to win. Saving your bank-roll (all the money you have in a poker room) allows you to constantly conquer more expensive cash games. Having a strong desire to win and self-discipline aids you in becoming a successful player at these limits. This also helps to build confidence in your strength. Don’t try to play higher limits at this stage of the game. Also don’t pay too much attention to the fact that many contenders play poorly, and you can win more money there. There is a very strict regularity in poker when average level of contenders’ skills grows with limits. It’s rare that you come across a player who managed to win a great deal, even at NL $20.
