Texas Hold Em Poker Tips For Playing The Turn #1

The first thing you need to know – and this goes for nearly any hand, but especially the turn – is that if you have a hand that you think you are likely to call with, you should just straight bet out.

Betting is a far better tactic to employ in this situation. This will present strength and the guy on the other side, who might in fact not have quite what you thought, could possible get scared and fold.
