That way, when you get your cards you can evaluate your chances to win and play accordingly. Holding a Royal Flush, the most powerful combination of cards in the game – try to maximize the bets around the table. Holding a Straight or a Flush, two medium strength combinations? Try to determine if the other players around the tables have better combinations of cards. Have a lousy hand? Fold to minimize your losses or do your best to bluff.
