Reading The Board

A very simple thing it is to read the board in a hold’em game, but I’m shamed to admit that I have overlooked it for far too long. Its only since reading a couple of pages on it in Lee Jones book Winning Low Limit Hold’em that it has jolted into active memory.

Its something I’m working on at the moment, that is to always make an effort to read and re-read the board throughout the hand, and it has made a marked improvement.

Still, I do occasionally slip up, by expecting to win a pot with aces, when I’ve raised and re-raised, not seeing the possibility that someone is still in the hand with 4-7 off suite to then catch his straight, when will I learn :p
