Big Hand in Poker

Big Hand in Poker

Table of content:

There is a popular saying that ‘the only certainties in life are death and taxes’. Something similar can be said about a game of poker, because every time you make a wrong move, you end up losing money and die from within bit by bit. This is exactly why you should make each move only after thinking it through properly.

A hand in poker is the set of five-cards (in most poker games) a player holds while playing. There are many types of hands such as royal flush, four of a kind, full house, flush etc. The winning hand is what is called the big hand. Different kinds of hands have different names and rankings, with the basic idea of most games being to create a winning poker big hand.

What is a poker big hand?

The meaning of a poker big hand is the same as it sounds - A ‘Big’ hand.

In any game of poker, you can have the ‘nuts’ if you own the absolute best hand. If you have a very good hand, you can call it a ‘big hand’. However, this does not mean that you will always win the pot if you hold a big hand.

A hand of pocket kings can be called a poker big hand but that does not necessarily mean that you have a winning hand.

If you have a big hand, then you should try and own the proceedings at the table. You should not sit back and relax but a lot more active to reach a stage where you are dictating terms in the game.

Flopping a set, flopping a small or medium flush and connecting on the flop with A-K are some situations where you should carefully play with a poker big hand.

In a game of poker, every move you make should be based on protecting your hand and working upon your strengths. You should have a clear understanding of your strategy or else your opponent can get the chance to catch up.

To make a right decision in poker, you must be able to evaluate your situation. As this is the only way you can protect your stack against the drawing opponents and can get enough value out of your hand.

This is easily the best looking Poker I have played online. I have been playing for about 2 months now, and I keep participating in various daily & weekly contests. Still, I was pleasantly suprised to make ₹60,000 in one week itself.

I couldn’t believe I had won ₹1.5 laks playing on the BB100 leaderboard. Though I have been practicing Poker consistently, I was still pleasantly surprising to have won this much. GetMega has truly exciting contests running daily & weekly.
