Poker Strategy Blocking Bet

Today I’d like to discuss the game tracks that no limit hold’em players apply too little. Don’t get me wrong.While many players use and understand it, most often overlook how effective it can actually be.

What’s a cut-off? In general, this is a bet applied to a river to ensure that the other party does not bet more. This means that when “out of position” is done, the blockbets are applied, and the last thing we do is we don’t trade. Using blockbets can cost less money than others. For example, if you sit in the 1/4 river of a port and call in your opponent and have a better hand, you lose less money if he throws a 1⁄2 port and you make a phone call. After all, you’re looking forward to a cheap showdown. Checking blocking bet is an indication of weakness. Betting is a sign of strength, and players will rarely rise unless they have a very strong hand in such situations.

In this case, the value bet is a better solution. A good blatt for a blocking bet is the same as an OK kicker. 1/2 NL, hand of BB position {10 Diamond} suppose you have {j Spades} and it’s a header off another player. Community cards include: {10-spades} {7-diamonds} {6-diamonds} {2-spades} {2-clubs}. You have a top pair, but that’s not much of a Blatt. Turn and River Card look pretty safe, and the other party is {7 clubs} If you have the same loss as {6 clubs], you are leading in a group of two. Nevertheless, your kicker is not the best and there are 10 better pairs that your opponent can have. The other person may have hit a straight line, but the couple on the board may be a little nervous, and if they sit on the river now, there is little chance that the other person will climb straight up without any more grooves.

Suppose that when you call Flop and River and only the player calls, the pot is $44. A $10 bet in the river can be considered a cut-off battle. Players with the same pass as {k-Spades} {10-Hearts} have the best pass when checking in the river and can easily bet $15-$20. In addition, checking can quickly become a bluff after the opponent misses a flush draw. If you check and your opponent bet $30, you have to make a difficult decision. You can create a situation in which the other person takes even more risks. Now, going up as a lost pair of drawers is a lot of courage (or stupidity). Blocking Bets prevent the other person from taking advantage of their weaknesses.


This bet, even if folded from a larger bet, can make money for you by a player with a weak hand invoking your bet. {7 Clubs}Players with the same hand as {8 Diamonds} are more likely to bet $10 on a $44 port. This doesn’t mean it’s a good call, but if your enemy has already gone so far, it’s well possible to bet your little bet. {10 Diamond}A player with the same hand as {9 Diamonds} missed all 17 outs, if purely out of frustration, will almost certainly call.


If you sit on the river and raise your opponent, you’ll know much better what you can hold in your hand. You may have something like A-A or have already hit a set on the flip, because it’s not likely that the other person has always dialed Ace-high only. Whatever happens, you can feel safe in this case.

Suppose a flush card is on the river.
