Long handed games

Long-handed poker requires a lot of patience with regards to waiting for good hands to come around. It must be understood that the standard of your hand has to be that much stronger in long-handed poker because you will be up against at least seven other players.

When the competition is so high, you really donít want to be throwing chips away by trying to play mediocre hands. They simply will not be strong enough and it would take a lot of luck for them to hold up or develop into something really strong.

To be successful in long-handed games you will be looking for suited or connector cards. A lot of players will be more speculative with playing these hands from the start. They will enter the flop with two high suited cards in the hope of getting lucky in a flop. By the time you hit the flush, the pot should already be quite high to bet it big if a few players have already entered.

Bluffing becomes a lot harder in long-handed game. It is very difficult to bluff so many players. It best advised to save any bluffing tactics for shorthanded games. It only takes one player to call your bluff and you could be in real trouble.

It is also very difficult to isolate one player when they are six other opponents around a table. You may spot a weak player but not have the opportunity to go heads up with them to exploit their weaknesses. By looking to take advantage of another player, you would also be playing more hands than you normally would and it would become very expensive.
