Just about all mobile poker sites currently offer no limit Texas Holdem cash tables and these tables can be just the place to make some real money if you have the nerve, skills and, most importantly, if you have the patience. Below you will find some mobile poker cash table advice that can help your game, especially in no limit games, where you can punish fish much more severely.
As when playing any live, online or mobile poker cash table, you must play tight and aggressive if you want to make some money. You must play the minimum number of hands with maximum effect. This means that you should be concentrating on playing big pairs (A, K, Q, 10) and other monster hands like AK, AQ and AJ, and you should be making strong raises, possibly 4-6 times the big blind. This way you will weed out the players that are holding mediocre hands, which can hit. However, you should judge your table accordingly.
If you find that your raises are being called every time, which often happens when playing with fish and less experienced players, you should only play premium hands and you should bet big, maybe as much as 10 times the big blind. Don’t be afraid of going all in if you have a premium hand. You may lose one or two hands here and there but, providing you are playing with a good bankroll management strategy and you only play big hands, you should be able to make some serious money, even if you have a losing streak.
If you’re a particularly patient mobile poker player, the kind of player that doesn’t mind waiting for ten hands at a time for the right cards to be dealt, only scrapping for blinds in between, then playing mobile poker cash tables that have a high number of seats is your best tactic. The temptation when playing on nine or ten handed tables is to play too many hands. The more players that are in a hand, the bigger your own hand should be before you go in. If you want to see more regular action you can either play tables with less players or even play heads-up tables, or you can try multi-tabling more than one table at a time. This is currently a rare feature for mobile poker sites. However, at iPhone PokerStars you are able to play a number of tables at the same time, which is perfect if you like to see plenty of action.
Avoid the calling game when playing mobile poker cash tables. Many players fall into the trap of playing mediocre hands with just a call. There are two good reasons not to do this. Firstly, good poker players will raise you with strong hands and, to save face, you will probably call with your mediocre hand. Secondly, every hand that you play may end up costing you through the rake, which varies from one mobile poker site to the next. Therefore, you should only play hands that you’re likely to win, paying as little rake to the house as possible.
So remember, when playing mobile poker cash tables you should play tight but play aggressive and with purpose if you want to win big on your mobile phone.
