P se Poker | Deciding the opening Bet size


Hi, welcome back to P se Poker
Today, I will talk about the importance of
opening bet size in tournaments.
Many new players make a mistake while opening a hand
Opening a hand means, you are the first player to bet.
Many new players increase/decrease their bet size on the basis of their hand strength
If they get aces, they will raise 5-6 times of the big blind
If they get marginal hand,
then they will limp from any position
If they get Ace-Jack, Ace-Queen or any small pair,
they will only raise 2 times the big blind
By doing this, we are giving a signal about the strength of our hand to the opponent
which we should never do in poker
Poker is a game of deception
If we give such a signal
Then the opponent will understand our game
and we will never be able to win.
This can be the big leak of our game.
So what should we do?
In 9stacks, you have a feature
to fix your opening bet size.
Go to settings

When you will press settings, you will see a “rate slider” in the drop-down column
Click on it. 2 columns will open in front of you
One would be “Pre-Flop controls” and
one “Post-Flop controls”
In “Pre-flop controls”,
let the minimum & maximum pot remain as is
In front of the big blind row, there would be an absolute number
Change that number to anything between 2.2 or 2.3
Then press “OK” to confirm
Now, whenever it will be your turn
2.2 or 2.3 whichever number you have entered,
will automatically come in your bet slider
You don’t have to do anything
You just have to press the button to open the hand
