Poker 6-7-8 Hold’Em Strategy Cards Set I: Full Tables (7-10 Players)

Five separate cards with Pre-Flop strategies for Full Tables of 7, 8, 9, and 10 players, along with a card with suggestions for play on the flop, turn, and river, and a discussion of outs and odds. The durable, laminated panels fold in any direction and are designed to lay flat no matter how the card is folded. When 10 players are playing, use the card for 10 players. If someone leaves and 9 players are playing, then use the card for 9 players. Tables with a maximum of 10 or 9 players are commonly found online, but the number of players playing at any one time can vary from 2 (see Set II: Short Tables for 2-6 players) up to the table maximum, which is one reason these hold’em cards are so valuable. The cards let you adjust your strategy based on how many players are playing, which expert poker players recommend. The easy-to-use tables have color-coded decision cells and display a short abbreviation for each decision. Three panels cover players in Early Position, Middle Position, and Late Position. A 4th panel (called Late Position – Aggressive) provides an alternative to the regular late position strategy to allow more variation to mislead opponents. Each Pre-Flop strategy panel provides every possible two-card starting hand, which allows users to quickly find any hand. Each panel that contains a strategy table is clearly divided into three sections: suited hands, unsuited hands, and pairs. Other panels contain a discussion of the blinds, the button, and the positions to help players learn the game. A large black number on each panel indicates the number playing so you can quickly switch cards when the number of players changes. WSOP champion Todd Brunson stated that “The biggest difference between winning & losing at limit Hold’Em is your starting hand selection.” The primary benefit of the strategy cards lies in providing sound starting hand choices every time.

Superb Texas Hold’Em quick reference guide for online play In August 2005 I reviewed this author’s (Hal Marcus’s) set of two Hold’Em Strategy cards and called it the “Most effective Texas Hold’Em quick reference aid I’ve ever seen.” But while getting his old set felt empowering, like moving from the horse and buggy era into modern times, upgrading from the old set to his 2 new sets feels like trading in a black Model T Ford for a state-of-the-art, Indianapolis 500 racing car. My comments below apply to both of the author’s new Poker 6-7-8 Hold’Em Strategy Card products, Set I: for Full Tables, and Set II: for Short Tables.I have heard and read that you should adjust your strategy as the number of players varies, which is logical if you pause for a moment to think about it. A pair of deuces is a pretty strong hand if you’re playing heads-up, but when you’re up against 9 other players it’s pretty weak. So it makes sense that the fewer the number of players, the more hands you should play.Hal Marcus’s original set of two Hold’Em Strategy cards contained a pre-flop strategy for 10 players. Almost every time that I play Hold’Em players come and go, and even at a 10-person table the play has ranged from 2 players going at it heads-up to 10 players, and every number of players in between. While I knew I should adjust my strategy as the number of players fluctuated, I didn’t really know EXACTLY what adjustments to make.For my last birthday I wished for strategy cards with the same super-easy-to-use format as Hal Marcus’ original set of two Hold’Em cards from last year, but this time covering every possible number of players from 2 to 10. To my delight, shortly after my birthday Hal Marcus came out with his two new sets (Amazon sells each set separately) of Hold’Em strategy cards. Because I was a registered user of his Blackjack 6-7-8 software, I was notified of the new product by email. Each set contains 5 different cards, and together both sets cover every different number of players from 2 thru 10. Set I covers 7-10 players, while Set II handles 2-6 players. If you buy both sets you get all 10 cards, and I think you’re going to regret it if you don’t get both sets. Why do I say that? Let me give you a super-easy quiz (but it’s super-easy ONLY if you own both Sets I and II).An experienced Hold’Em player might well say, “I’ve been playing for years and I already know what to do with the first two cards. OK, so here’s 7 super-easy, multi-part questions, with a total of 15 parts. Anyone who owns both sets of these new Hold’Em strategy cards could very easily answer all the parts of any one question in no more than 5 or 10 seconds. If it takes you more than 15 seconds to get all the answers exactly right to all of the parts of any one question, count it as a wrong answer. Passing is getting 100% of the answers to all 15 parts exactly right. Anything less and you flunk, because the fact is that either you KNOW, or else you really DON’T know.Here’s the quiz:There are nine players playing, you are in early position, and you are dealt an A10 off-suit. 1A) How many players are in early position? 1B) What is your correct action?There are eight players playing, you are in early position, and you are dealt an A10 off-suit. 2A) How many players are in early position? 2B) What is your correct action?There are seven players playing, you are in early position, and you are dealt an A10 off-suit. 3A) How many players are in early position? 3B) What is your correct action?There are six players playing, you are in early position, and you are dealt an A10 off-suit. 4A) How many players are in early position? 4B) What is your correct action?Five players are playing, you’re in late position and you’re dealt a K7 off-suit. 5A) How many players are in late position? 5B) What is your correct move if you are playing a normal, late position strategy? 5C) What is the correct action if instead you choose to play an appropriate but more aggressive, late position strategy?Four players are playing, you’re in the cutoff position and you’re dealt an A10 suited. 6A) What is your correct action if you want to play conservatively? 6B) How would you play it differently if you wanted to be aggressive?Three players are playing. Here’s the last question: 7A & 7B) Even though there is no player who is in the middle position, nevertheless, describe precisely the two different circumstances when a player might correctly decide to use middle position strategy anyway.(See all 15 correct answers below.)Just like last year’s set of two Hold’Em cards, these cards contain all of the 169 possible, 2-card starting hands. But now, all of the 169 possible, 2-card starting hands are repeated on 9 different cards, with a separate, entire card dedicated to EACH one of the numbers of players from 2 thru 10.
