The majority of the poker hands
you play after the flop will be in
a heads-up environment, so know-
ing how to handle yourself is the
key to success.
It doesn't really matter what you
have---the first thing you need to
analyze is what your opponent could
have in relation to the board. That
requires a big checklist of questions
that you must try to answer.
Is your opponent an aggressive
player who is constantly involved
in the action? Has he or she shown
reckless tendencies, or does he or
she play a very tight, conservative
What hands has your opponent
shown from various table positions,
and how likely is he or she to defend
both the big and small blinds?
These answers---which get more
accurate with increased table time
against an opponent---can help you
identify a range of hands that you
may be up against.
There are certain players in every
game who will play only pocket pair
hands or big ace combinations, such
as A-K or A-Q. When you find one,
count your blessings.
If that player is first to act and
bets out on a flop that contains an
ace, there is a pretty good chance
that you are up against top pair,
and folding your hand probably is
the best decision if you don't have
a serious draw or can beat two aces.
If that player type checks the
action to you, it would be a good
idea to bet out and attempt to rep-
resent top pair yourself.
A more aggressive player also
might fire out, representing the ace,
but it could be wise to re-raise (even
if it's a total bluff) to test his or her
honesty. A lot of players have the
stomach to fire one bullet, but they
usually won't fire two.
It's also important to ask yourself
if this opponent has a tendency to
slowplay his or her big hands. There
are player types that will check and
call you all the way down to the
river, then throw out a large, sweep-
ing bet that easily can be mistaken
for a bluff. Sometimes it is, more
often it isn't, and when you do call
or make a desperate all-in shove,
it can be the end of your night.
Phil Hellmuth, a Poker Hall of
Famer with hundreds of document-
ed hands on TV, is a notorious trap
setter who uses the post-flop check
more often than Tiger Woods hits
a pitching wedge in 18 holes of golf.
But Hellmuth also knows when
the time is right to bluff, and he is
a master at pinpointing his oppo-
nents' hands to a very specific range.
Does your opponent have that read
on you? What were the earlier sit-
uations that forced you out of a
hand, and is the opposition exploit-
ing your weaknesses?
The list of questions is daunting,
and you won't be right all the time.
If you were, you would be the great-
est player on the planet. All you
have to do is be right more often
than you are wrong.
