On the return, the fourth community card is revealed. This means that only one more card is still not open. This last remaining card may or may not differ in the hands already formed by poker players. But most of the time, what the value of the hand that the player has formed will be equal in the return. Therefore, in the return, there are two things that will influence the strategy of the winning poker player.
1. Bet in proportion to the size of the pot
When your hand is a strong hand, one must certainly bet. In Texas Hold’em, favored pocket cards are high pairs, such as a pair of aces, a pair of kings up to a pair of ten. When one must bet, one should do so in proportion to the size of the pot. In the round, the bets are higher. Therefore, the amount in the pot should also be high so that earning it is worth the investment.
However, one must be careful when the pot is large and there are many players who have remained in the game. The pot has become big because many of the players have made pre-failure gains. And with so many players, one must expect that the probability of being beaten is high.
2. Make opponents increase the size of the pot that
some players make the wrong assumption that they should call even with weak hands because a good community card will appear that will greatly improve their hands. This should not be the mind set of the player especially in the turn, when only one card of the community, the river, should still be opened. Another incorrect assumption by some players is that they would not bet or raise even when they have strong cards because they think that their opponents will have an idea that they have good hands. Such an assumption will not be profitable.
When one has a good hand, one must bet, or even raise. Opponents with weak cards will certainly double and this simply increases their chances of winning the hand. When an opponent doubles, all other poker players staying in the game have a greater chance of winning. As for the opponents who wanted to see the river card, hoping that they improve their moderately strong cards, they will certainly call their bet or raise. Your call will build pot. Although there is a settling of accounts, one will have a good chance of winning if one has a good hand.
