Money Management

You must define your maximum bet. It should not be more than five units, but it can be as few as two units. we suggest staying with a one unit bet if you lose, no matter what the other players did on the prior round, but aggressive bettors may wish to bet up even on a loss.

I suggest a stop-loss point of six units. When you are down by six units, then it is time to go. This means that you could get forced out of this game after losing two hands in succession if you are betting three units on each hand.

The best way to bet in a strong game with Ride the Bias is to take your table stake of six units and divide it into three stacks of two units each. These stacks represent three bets of two units each. This is the way you start. If the game turns sour right away (you lose three bets in a row), you're out of the game. If you chop back and forth with these three bets over half to a full shoe, you can stay in the game or exit-your choice. You may wish to revert to the basic betting strategy described earlier.

But once you start winning, and in many games you will because you've qualified the table as a winning table with dealer-breaking activity, this is where the fun begins. Use your win to increase the size of the three stacks evenly, beginning with the leftmost stack (you're betting from the rightmost stack). So the stacks increase evenly, first to three chips then to four, five, and so on. As your stacks increase, your maximum bet increases, so now you can bet three units, for example, when three more players win than lose on the prior round.

Online Poker Guru Tips
Often players who play too many hands will make many other mistakes as well. A typical loose player will call too much, not just on the first round but on all rounds. These players are the kind you encounter most often in home games. They play online poker games only once a week, and they want action. Against such opponents, conservatism and patience pay big dividends. You play your solid cards, and you don't bluff nearly as much as game theory indicates to be correct. There is clearly no value in bluffing when you know you'll be called - except perhaps once or twice early in a session for advertising purposes, to make doubly sure you'll get called later with your legitimate hands.
