Reasons tight play is important in online poker

Date Published: 5th November 2019
Author: James Shelton
Playing tight in online poker is practically the default for new players. Gambling can be unnerving, and the tendency for players that are not comfortable gambling online is to play tight. This is smart because tight play is very conservative, playing tight will limit your losses and only put you in positions where you’ll have a high likelihood to win.

Online poker turns also go by significantly quicker than live poker turns, so it is more practical to play tight. Since you get to see more hands and more flops in online poker, playing tight is more feasible, and some experienced poker players will play multiple tables simultaneously with a tight poker strategy. Playing tight in online poker is important to win money, but playing tight at the right time is more important.

What is Playing Tight in Online Poker?
Playing tight in poker means being selective about which hands to play, and what hands to fold. Tight poker players only play hands with excellent equity, and therefore fold most hands. This style of play is conservative. Waiting for AA, KK, or other superb cards, you won’t be able to play the majority of hands, but when you do play you will have a very high likelihood of winning the pot.

Winning More from Tight Play in Online Poker
Tight play in online poker helps players win because it makes the decision process much simpler. Betting when you have strong cards isn’t really gambling. However, there are weaknesses to tight play too. This can be exploited by your opponents, because they will constantly fold when you call, as they know your cards are great whenever you play a turn. This will mean less chances to win more for you. You can take advantage of their fear that you are always holding magnificent cards, by timing some profitable bluffs. Players that feel they have the read on you, will fold to all your hands so you can take pots. Also, when you do have nuts or other spectacular cards, you should play aggressively. The tight-aggressive combination in online poker will invite players to call and mean more profit for you.
