Hello Plat fans (I'm going to ignore the gruffnuts from now on),
This is a quick post about how and when you should go for the check raise. This is gold dust. This will help you all with your games and deciding when to check raise!
The best time to checkraise is when you have a flush draw to disguise your hand and totally fuck with your opponents minds. This also works with any other type of draw including double ended straights and sometimes with the middle pin straight draw.
Another great time to go for the check raise is when you have a pocket pair. Like when the flop is 23J and you hold TT... this is an ideal time to check/raise... you gotta mix it up. 77 on a 993 board... GO ON CHECK MOTHER FUCKING RAISE.
You will have a disguised hand that they will never be able to put you on. Even if they do call you should still bet about one tenth of the pot on the turn... often these clowns will either fold to your turn bet with top pair or sometimes go all in and you can safely fold knowing you played the hand perfectly and lost the minimum when you were obv beat.
There are players at the £20NL tables who think they deserve to win every pot... you have to fight back against these gruffnuts! They bet with shit all the time. Every fucking flop all they do is bet. THIS IS WHY THE CHECK RAISE IS SUCH A PROFITABLE MOVE. I mean it has made me £1000's over the last few months alone. I am such a creative player... I really should move up to 25p/50p some times very soon... or maybe just 15p/25p.
