Speed Poker Tips Sharpen Your Skills

By Wesley R Young

I recently had the opportunity to watch a new version of tournament poker called speed poker. The format I watched was played using Texas holdem, with pot limit betting before the flop and no limit betting after the flop. Each player had 15 seconds to act, or their hand was automatically folded, and each player had a time bank they could activate if they needed extra time. Once all of the time was used in the time bank, they could not use it again. The game required two dealers to keep on top of the action and the tables started six handed. This speed poker format was very interesting to watch, as the game moved along at a very nice pace, and it reminded me of playing online poker.

Players who play online have the advantage of being used to acting quickly over their opponents who play mostly live poker, but remember that online players often have tells because they don't have to hide their emotions when they are in front of a computer like when they are facing real opponents. I am sure that online poker players will only have an advantage over players of close to the same skill level. Professional poker players tend to be able to adapt to most situations quickly, and they have the advantage of being able to quickly determine pot odds and the correct play.

Speed poker is not widely available at this time, but I feel that it has a good chance to catch on because it is more entertaining in many ways than regular tournament poker, especially for spectators. If you want to sharpen your skills for speed poker, here are a few tips you can do to improve your chances.

· Play tournaments online, where you only have 20 to 30 seconds to act.

· Practice quickly determining pot odds.

· Always pay attention to all of your opponents. Any small tell or playing tendency that you can pick up can make the difference between winning and losing an entire tournament.

· Practice in high-pressure situations. The lack of time in these tournaments to make decisions builds a great deal of pressure into the game.

If you have a chance to watch a speed poker tournament, I highly recommend it. As a spectator or a participant, you will probably enjoy it a great deal. Until next week, good luck at the tables.
