1. Think about your opponent’s range, not what cards your opponent has!
One of the easiest ways to distinguish a professional amateur player is to think about what your opponent has.
– a mediocre one will try to put his opponent on a specific hand
– a professional thinks in ranges
A range is basically all the hands that one could have, depending on a specific situation. For example, player X may have color, top pair, middle pair, bottom pair, a draw, A-card or a complete bluff.
Good players understand that player X will play with all these hands and different frequencies. They try to detect these frequencies and play accordingly. A mediocre player will put his opponent on an exact hand (for example, A red clover A) just because his instinct tells.
