Games such as blackjack and baccarat have been around for a long time and as such there are familiar strategies that abound for these games.  However casino holdem is quite new and as such a steadfast strategy has yet to be developed. There will never be a perfect casino holdem strategy, but there are steps you can take to make the game easier, more profitable and ultimately more enjoyable.

Play the Bonus

Playing the bonus on a casino holdem table can be very profitable. The payouts are normally higher for the bonus plus you don’t have to rely on the dealer to qualify to get your winnings.

Bet Half

This may sound like a funny strategy if you want to win but it will pay dividends in the long run. Unlike blackjack and other table games, the betting in casino holdem is not finished when the player receives their cards. You get to see your two cards, plus the first three community cards before you have the option of ‘calling’ and putting more chips in the pot. Obviously you will only fold when you have an absolutely horrible hand, and if you do fold you get of the hand at half the cost. If you call you must match your original wager. It is important to remember that there are two betting rounds in casino holdem, so don’t commit too many chips at the start.

Play Aggressive

Poker is a game of patience whereas casino poker is a game of quick thinking and fast decisions. The most common mistake players (especially those who play poker) can make at casino holdem is folding too often. Remember that you only have to beat the dealer and the dealer only has to get a low pair to qualify for the hand (this will vary but it’s normally between a pair of fours and eights). The player also has the advantage of seeing three of the dealer’s cards before they make their decision. Mathematically it is correct to fold about 18% of the time in casino holdem. Players should call after the flop if they have any of the following: any pair, any straight draw, four card flush, three card straight flush, any straight flush draw or even two over cards. If the board pairs it is normally a good idea to call, especially if you think you have higher cards than the dealer.

Follow these tips and you’ll be having more fun and more wins when playing casino holdem.
