Mouse Pad Poker Pro

This is way more than just a mouse pad. It is your ticket to winning big playing online poker. I have been playing micro and small stakes Texas hold'em poker for over five years now, never having to make a deposit to fund my bankroll. Starting with money won in freerolls, I have managed to build substantial bankrolls at multiple sites and can honestly say I am in the elite group of poker players that in the long run, make a profit playing poker.

I have read the books of great poker players like Brunson, Sklansky, Harrington, Helmuth and more. I have taken this information along with the experience of playing over one million hands myself and created a strategy that anyone can use to make money playing online poker. This strategy has been condensed to a page full of information and graphics that have been imprinted onto a mouse pad so that you have the basic strategy right at your side. The Mouse Pad Poker Pro is like have a professional poker player coaching you during each hand. It is a cheat sheet that provides you with the following information:
  1. What starting hands to play

  2. What positions to play those starting hands from

  3. How to adjust for tight or lose play

  4. Chart of winning percentages based on outs

  5. Winning hand rankings

This mouse pad is a great gift idea, Christmas is fast approaching and the poker player in your family will really thank you for this present once the winnings start rolling in.

If you have already purchased the Mouse Pad Poker Pro, the following are your operating instructions:

The two most important aspects of Texas Hold'em are What starting hands to play and table position. By simply following the directions pertaining to these aspects you are going to improve your game profits dramatically.

Starting Hands
The system is broken down to show what starting hands you should play based on what position you are in at the table. Starting hands are categorized into eight groups, one being the strongest and progressively get weaker with each successive group, eight being the weakest group hands. (The s indicates cards that are both of the same suit)

Group 1: AA, KK, AKs
Group 2: QQ, JJ, AK, AQs, AJs, KQs
Group 3: TT, AQ, ATs, KJs, QJs, JTs
Group 4: 99, 88, AJ, AT, KQ, KTs, QTs, J9s, T9s, 98s
Group 5: 77, 66, A9s, A5s-A2s, K9s, KJ, KT, QJ, QT, Q9s, JT, QJ, T8s, 97s, 87s, 76s, 65s
Group 6: 55, 44, 33, 22, K9, J9, 86s
Group 7: T9, 98, 85s
Group 8: Q9, J8, T8, 87, 76, 65

Table Positions
The Mouse Pad Poker Pro uses color codes to identify table positions. Green positions, dealer, Cut Off and Cut Off+1, give you the best advantage in the hand as you will be last or towards the last to act in each round of betting. When you are in these positions you can play weaker starting hands as you have the advantage of knowing how the other players are going to act. I recommend you only play hands from group 1 thru 6 in these positions. As you get farther away from the dealers button you will be playing from the yellow or middle positions. From these positions you will tighten up and only play starting hands from groups 1 thru 3. The positions shown in red are the big and small blinds and under the gun positions. Here is where you want to really tighten up and only play starting hands from group 1 and 2. You can defend your big blind but fold to any bet unless you have a powerhouse hand.

Pre Flop Betting Strategy
If you hold AA, KK, QQ, or JJ yo have a good chance of winning the hand without improvement if you only have one opponent in the hand. based on this, you want to try and limit the number of players in the hand by betting. Usually 3 to 5 times the big blind amount. With AA, KK and QQ you will want to re-raise any bets to the amount of the pot.

Outs and Basic Probability
After the flop your betting strategy is based on the probability chance that you will have the winning hand and the amount of money to be won in the pot. This is know as your pot odds. To determine this you will first need to know how many "outs" you have.

Outs are cards that are left in the deck that will improve your hand or make it the winning hand. For example, if your starting hand is the jack and queen of spades. The flop gives you two more spade, you know that out of the thirteen possible spades in the deck, nine are unaccounted for. Any one of these nine spades would give you a flush and are considered outs. If the two spades on the flop were the 9s and 10s you would also have the possibility of making a straight with the 8h, 8d or 8c, giving you three more outs. The 8s has already been counted so you now have 12 outs. You would also make the straight with the Kh, Kd or Kc which gives you three more outs for a total of 15 outs. you can look at the MPPP and see that with 15 outs and the turn and river yet to come you have a 54.1 percent chance of making the winning hand.

Next you will take this percent chance of winning the hand and calculate your pot odds. Simply put, pot odds are the odds that the is offering you in relation to the size of the bet you are making or calling. For example, if a sole opponent bets .8 cents into a .72 cent pot (to create a .80 pot)then you are getting pot odds of 10 to 1 or a 10 percent. You divide the amount of the pot by the amount of the bet you will have to make to stay in the hand to determine this percentage. If the percent chance of winning the hand is greater than 10 percent, you want to bet or make the call. Calculating pot odds will take some practice but with the help of the Mouse Pad Poker Pro, it will soon become second nature to you.

Keep in mind when playing micro and small stakes online poker that most players at these stakes are not very safistacated. If someone is betting heavily, he more than likely has a good hand. If someone is betting weakly, chances are he is on a drawing hand or has a weak hand. At these levels it is not profitable to make fancy plays or bluff with nothing. Player just don't know when they should fold. Stick to your gut feeling, along with solid starting hands from the power positions outlined on the Mouse Pad Poker Pro and you will be profitable.
