HOW TO BET PRE-FLOP

Example - You are dealt two queens. Time comes to match or raise a bet. The chance of winning the hand is 22% (see chart). The pot is $50. Based on a 22% chance of winning, your pot odds would indicate a safe bet of $10 at the pre-flop (22% x $50). Then somebody goes crazy and starts betting. Do you know what kind of a player they are? Do they have a pair of 9's? Over 50% of the pots are won by a pair of 9's or better.

Tight players never deviate from these rules unless they are playing with a very weak table.
