Welcome to Liquid Poker's beginners guide. This thread intends to introduce you to poker and to our site. It's not our intention to teach you poker with this post, but to show a little bit of the poker world. This guide is organized in some topics that will help you to better understand how poker and our forum work. In case you are already a bit familiar to poker, feel free to skip any topic and read those that interest you. We hope this is helpful to you!


<font size="4pt"><b>About Poker</b></font>

<b>Poker Rules</b>:

Just like in any other game, knowing poker rules is the first thing you have to do. We have an article detailing how Texas Hold’em works. Hold’em is the most popular poker game in the world. After you learn it, it becomes much easier to learn other poker games. <a href="http://www.liquidpoker.net/pokerarticle/699930/Poker_Rules:_Texas_Hold_em">Learn the basic poker rules</a>.


<b>How poker works:</b>

There are plenty of ways to play poker online. Apart from playmoney, usually we divide it in three categories that are divided in subcategories.

- <b>Playmoney</b> - Just as the name says, it's a playmoney poker game. If you are just starting out, we suggest you to <a href="http://www.liquidpoker.net/out/1">create an account on PokerStars</a> and play on playmoney tables for some hours so you can get familiar with online poker. This is a great way to get a feeling of the game without the risk of losing money, since you don't have to deposit a penny!

1.<b>Cash games</b> - Cash game is a poker game played with real money. It means the chips on the table represent money. There are cash games for every kind of bankroll, from the pennies to the grands.

1.1 <b>Ring-game</b> – Cash game with up to 10 players

1.2 <b>6-max or 6-handed</b> - Cash game with up to 6 players

1.3 <b>Heads-up</b> – Cash game One on one


2. <b>Tournaments</b> – Tournaments are played until there is only one player left. Most of the tournaments pay prizes to around 10% of the field of players. Those players who get to the money are said to finish the tournament “In the money”. Every poker room has a schedule of regular tournaments.

2.1 <b>Freezeout</b> – In these tournaments you only have one “life”. If you lose all your chips it means you are eliminated.

2.2 <b>Rebuys and Add-on</b> – Rebuy tournaments are usually a lot more aggressive than Freezeout tournaments early on. They allow the player to rebuy the initial stack and get another chance at the tournament. Add-on means you can pay the buy-in of the tournament and add the initial stack to your chip stack. Let’s say the initial stack of a tournament is 1500 chips. You can pay the entrance fee of the tournament and add those 1500 chips to your current chip stack.

2.3 <b>Satellite</b> – Qualifier tournaments for bigger tournaments. Usually they work as freezeout tournaments.


3. <b>Sit N’ Go</b> – They work as tournaments, but the big difference is that they don’t follow a schedule. For a SNG to start the only requirement is that all available seats are sold out. SNG’s can start with as few players as two, but you can find SNG’s with seats for 360 players out there.

Betting Limits

In every kind of poker game (Cash, Tournament, SNG), there has to be a rule for betting sizes. Games can have a pot limit, fixed limit, or no limit at all.

- No Limit is pretty obvious. There are no limits for betting values or number of bets, so you can go all-in on your very first act.

- In Pot Limit you can bet any amount as long as the number does not surpass the pot. If the pot is 100 you can bet up to 100.

- In Fixed Limit games, bets are capped to certain limits in both value and number of bets.

You can identify the betting limit of the game at the poker room lobby. There will always be a tab displaying the limit: NL, PL or FL.

<b>Bankroll Management</b>

This is one of the most important poker concepts out there. Often it can mark the difference between the successful and the unsuccessful poker player. Bankroll management means you should only play limits with a cashier that allows you to do so, protecting you from poker variance.

If you have $100 in your cashier, it would be wrong to play a $25 buy-in cash-game, because you can lose all your roll in a blink of an eye. Even though the concept is not really complex, many players fail to follow a correct bankroll management for some reason. Do not do this. We have two really good texts about bankroll management (<a href="http://www.liquidpoker.net/pokerarticle/146467/Bankroll_Management_Explained">Bankroll Managemente Explained</a> and <a href="http://www.liquidpoker.net/pokerarticle/146441/The_bankroll_management_and_variance_guide">The Bankroll Management and Variance Guide</a> in our <a href="http://www.liquidpoker.net/pokerarticles/">Poker Articles</a> section. Read them!

<b><i>Rakeback</i></b>

First, let's define what rake is. Online poker rooms are like a virtual casino. This means they need profit, just like any other business. Rake is the way we pay them for their service. At pretty much every cash-game hand a small percentage of the pot, usually up to 5%, goes to the poker room. In tournaments the rake is a fee added to the buy-in. In a $3+0.30 tournament, the rake is 30 cents.


Rakeback is a refund to the players. Poker players get back a percentage of the rake they pay to the poker room. It is a deal between the player and the poker room, which allows the player to receive part of the amount raked by him during certain period. Usually these rakeback deals refund the player in around 30% of the rake. Say you raked $100 during a month. If you have a 30% rakeback deal, you have the right to get $30 back.

Liquid Poker offers the best rakeback deals of the internet. <a href=http://rakeback.liquidpoker.net/>Check out our rakeback site</a>!

- Other poker games hand discussion forum;
- Main poker, that involves all poker discussions;

Hi you all ,i like playing poker and usually i play at Heracasino . has anyone any thoughts on building a roll from HU sngs.

Using the principles like that off doubling up on red in casinos on roulette. But with poker HU SNG. Less variance of course because it's pretty hard to lose more than 5 HU sngs at once. Unless ur really bad.

Any thoughts?

ie. $1, $2, $6 , $10 , $20 etc

Researchers used brain scans to show that when straight men looked at pictures of women in bikinis, areas of the brain that normally light up in anticipation of using tools, like spanners and screwdrivers, were activated.

if you are talking about martingale strategy (always betting just enough to get slightly ahead) or another betting strategy, it doesn't work

most of them are structured such that they will maximise your chance of having a winning session, but at the same time making your losing sessions so severe that you end up with the same longterm results (as in the graph)

There is an M chart that is used in tourneys for when you should shove all in or fold depending on your stack size in relation to the blinds, position at the table and how many orbits (M) you can survive for.

For cash games not really.

Graph looks standard, if you consider earlier shots (big losses in few torunaments) the "epic downswing" was just cumulation of 2-3 smaller swings which occured around 120#, 180# and so on.

martingale works, you just need infinite bankroll for it :DDD

when did you guys start?


kingpowa   France. May 15 2012 19:29. Posts 1525

If it is not for just registering for a freeroll... here is an answer.
Quite a lot started playing with playmoney and next sold it for some real money and started from there playing micros.
If you don't want to go through playmoney (which is understable), start at the lowest stakes, and don't move up until you feel very comfortable and beat it easily.

sorry for shitty english.

wow thank you very much for your help.
i know i sound very amateur (and i am!) but i really appreciate you helping me out as i believe you all know it better than me! thank you very much!

just out of curiosity: whats so bad with freerolls? as i understand its a tournament withouth entry fee right? that doesnt sound that bad. and can i change playmoney on PokerStars too?

Raidern   Brasil. May 16 2012 20:05. Posts 4227

freerolls are not any bad. It's just that sometimes liquid poker hosts freerolls and some people sign on the site just to be able to play them.

Hi, I've been on the starcraft part of teamliquid for ages, and decided to give poker a try. Can I ask some questions? Is this the right place?

I took the pokerstrategy offer for $50 free on titanpoker if you did their quiz etc. Is titanpoker a good/bad site?

They keep repeating (at pokerstrategy.com) that I should play TAG. To know if I actually am playing like a TAG (I'm aiming for a cute little noob TAG right now), I feel it would be useful to take some statistics on myself (and maybe even on other people). Is there a free software that can help me take that kind of statistics? I don't feel like spending the $90 dollar for the fancy software you advertise on the OP right now.

cheers, see you at the tables! (plz don't take mai monei!)

edit: also, the accounts are separate on the starcraft and poker parts right? I didn't make a new account for nothing?

 Last edit: 27/09/2012 08:04

Art.Cascade   Australia. Sep 27 2012 10:42. Posts 41

Also, is the advice from pokerstrategy accurate for a beginner?

I read the "become a winner" articles by Jelle (from 2007!), which seemed to say more or less the same: play only the strongest hands preflop, but don't be afraid to raise when you get a good hand on the flop. Is that how I should play now at the start? I am getting a bit bored by sitting and folding round after round using the table from pokerstrategy (table.pdf), but maybe that is working as intended.

Correct, both sites use seperate databases. We don't want minors or people that have moral objections to poker to automatically be a member of a poker site.

Thanks for help guys!
I installed fpdp. What are good numbers to show on the HUD? I have 11.7% VPIP, is that too small? Maybe not enough hands to really tell atm.

I'll create a thread as Rapoza suggested once I have a bit more to show. Atm I have like 300 hands (up almost 2 dollars, yay me!) and just a few large bets. I'm playing preflop according to my chart, but pretty sure I'm doing everything after that wrong. Possibly folding/checking too often. I want to get a few more hands for better statistics before asking for advice though. Ty again.

It's not stupid, people are not BORN with knowledge...everyone starts somewhere and somewhere along the line this info needs to be available. This is a beginners poker forum, the perfect place to find this sort of info. Imagine if it was never ever available? Now THAT dear Sir, is mind boggling along with the fact that you seem to be oblivious to this.

Hello guys

I recently started playing poker. What i found out so far, that is really addicting :D Since i am sc2 fan, i favor this forum and decided to ask stupid questions that are not in beginners guide or in novice guides.. :D I hope i will get some friendliness.

So the questions:

Do you guys registered to most poker sites because of "100%bonus of cash"? It sounds very very huge bonus.
Played some games with pokermoney and tried cash games. I do think sit'n'go is easiest to start especcialy when you win if half table players drop out. It doesnt give you any money but gradually i could try those normal tables. Any comments on this?

I also interested in making my own sheet with results of some kind of to track something that is suppose to be important(not just interesting). Any guide in here? Or is this that bankroll manager? Or bankroll manager is another useful sheet of info?

I noticed i try boldly with shitty hand(same color) for flushes. It seems to pay off, at least when i play very casually. And i also focus on my timigs to fold the cards by guessing if i will loose.

And the last question: is texas holdem most popular or easiest to play for noobs or the way to become a good poker player? Will people eventually transition to other poker types?

Ty. for answers!

And the last question: is texas holdem most popular or easiest to play for noobs or the way to become a good poker player? Will people eventually transition to other poker types?

Ty. for answers!



Definitely try to always take FULL advantage of the 100% bonuses you find. For example, if you have $300 and one site offers 100% at $100 and 50% at $1000; you'll want to deposit to the first option first off, grind up / unlock your winnings and bonus, then deposit on the other site when your bankroll is large enough. It's definitely a great reason to start at a site, but you should also weigh that against the risk of the site closing (if it isn't regulated or for another reason). Do your research!

Sit and goes are a great starting point. Your edge is quickly made known, especially at lower stakes when that is often a matter of patience. You might typically be able to literally sit out and get 5th place or higher a decent amount of the time in a 10 man tournament. These tournaments also teach you about adapting to players quickly, about variance of the game, and about keeping cool after things don't go your way (because they won't a lot of the time!)

Texas Hold'em is by far and away the most popular game to play. However, it's also one of the more competitive games. If you're getting into a game, or anything you want to beat, just make sure you're doing more than your competition to learn and to improve, and you will come out on top in the long run (barring any physical talents, like if we're talking basketball and being above 6'5" helping quite a bit)

Are there any good guides that tell you which hands are worth seeing the flop for and which hands are worth betting on and stuff like that?
