Experts distinguish two ways, or more precisely, two styles of playing a poker combination. Flush draws – passive and aggressive. Below we will discuss them in more detail, and which one to choose is up to the player, depending on the situation at the table and on his own temperament and way of playing.
Passive flush draw. The essence of the passive playing of this combination comes down to making small bets (if possible) to wait for the rounds of the turn and river. And when three suited cards appear on the board, try raising the stakes. But there is a simple “but” in this method – the players will be careful looking at the three suited cards on the table.
Aggressive flush draw. Here the game is on the verge of bluffing – that is, the player must show confidence in his hand and try to provoke the opponent to fold, which should increase the pot that you will get, when the necessary out appears, which strengthens your combination to a full-fledged Flash.
Professional players have certain rules on how best to play their Flush Draws at the poker table. Here is some of them. Do not believe strongly in the success of suited connectors and try to play Flush Draws in the first rounds of a tournament. The chances that they (connectors of the same suit) will improve even to a flush draw are not so great.
In a situation where you raised (raised) even before the flop round, continue like this – maintain a confident position in the subsequent stages of the bet – both on the flop stage and on the turn. In the event that, in the hope of playing a flush draw, you started the distribution by making a call, continue to act carefully, do not rush to raise rates. A check-raise in such a situation can be used extremely rarely.
If you are still confident in the successful play of your Flush Draw, then you should allow yourself a little cautious bluff, and if opponents somehow show their uncertainty in their own hand, take the initiative – you can make raises, and sometimes go all-in. , resorting to all-inu.
Summing up, once again on the main point – Flush is a full-fledged poker combination of five suited cards of any suit, the denomination or the order of the cards in which is arbitrary. A flush draw is a set of four cards of different denominations, not in order, but of the same suit. There are nine outs to strengthen the Flush Draw to the Flush. In disputable situations, when several rivals have a Flush, the winner is determined by the highest – the strongest card involved in the combination.
