How to play a maximum play in European poker

Having a maximum play is one of the best things that can happen to you in poker, although it is essential to know how to play it in order to get as many chips as possible. It is also called “The Nuts . “

The first thing is to differentiate between a maximum start play, in the middle of the play or in the last round . These three scenarios are very different from each other even if they have the common denominator of having the maximum play at all times. Obviously, the sooner the maximum play is played, the greater the risk to be taken into account.

Let’s go by parts:

If we have a maximum start play , an AS-AS in this case, but we could also understand here other plays as a high pair or AS-K. In the pre-flop round we must decide how to play this hand. There are several options that can be summarized in two: playing covered to hide our strength but increasing the risks; or play aggressively, thus limiting the risks quite a bit. The first thing to keep in mind is how we are playing the rest of the hands, the size of our bets and other factors that can give information to our rivals. So if we are re-covering many hands, it may be advisable to do the standard climb we are doing, since it is not foreseeable that it is a great hand. If we decide to play covered, “slowplay” the most important thing is to take the risks and know how to throw the hand when the time comes. If we decide to play covered, we will surely invite more players with mediocre hands but that can be very dangerous since they will be unpredictable. It is also true that playing cover can also bring you great benefits, but be careful. In any case the decision to play covered is always an exception to the rule.

Middle of the play

A maximum play in the middle of the play, that is to say in the round of the flop or in the turn, or what is the same with one or two cards to leave supposes several differences with what was said previously. In the first place with the flop everything can change, and the best starting hand can become unusable and a mediocre play in maximum play. Although here we are going to see what we can do in the case of having maximum play with whatever hand it is. The first thing to know is if we think we have a maximum provisional play with great chances that the rest of the cards will be taken away from us (eg having a trio with open possibilities of color and / or ladder …), or if we have a play almost unbeatable (eg Full on the flop). Depending on the case, and the risks and especially how strong we see our rivals and how susceptible they are to pay, We will place our bet with the right amount or continue playing covered. You have to know that to win chips there have to be bets, and that many times waiting for the river to bet is synonymous with a lot of strength and you won’t see a chip. There are times that betting a lot demonstrating strength invites players to pay thinking that you have no maximum play and that you are trying to protect your hand. All psychology is very complex, so the most important thing is to think about how we can get the greatest number of chips taking into account the risk we have and thus track our play. It is also important to vary the plays and not always play the same hands in the same way. and that many times waiting for the river to bet is synonymous with a lot of strength and you will not see a chip.

Maximum play

A maximum play on the river is unbeatable. So the risk no longer exists. The only thing that exists is to think how we can get the most out of our play. For this, the first thing is to think that our or our rivals can have, so that we can guess what they would do according to what we would do. So if we think that our opponent has a very good play that can lead him to bet, if we talk first, we could move on to invite him to bet and thus re-raise the bet. If we think you have a partner or double partner that is scary, we will try to make a value bet that we think you can pay us. And if we think that it has absolutely nothing since we think that it has remained in a failed project, we should also go to encourage you to bet since in no case would you pay a bet from us.

It is a psychological question that you should try to master to go a step ahead of your rival to take advantage of his weaknesses and take refuge from his strength.
