Bets that don't fall into the half-to-full-size-of-the-pot range are either underbets or overbets, though bets just outside the range are still considered normal (e.g.
However, you must be extremely confident of both facts.
As an example, a player who has pocket kings hoe heet iemand die een trekking van een loterij doet is up against two players with unknown hands.
If the pocket kings were to overbet the pot here (for example, going all-in with 1000 for an 80 pot they could only be called by players holding 9-9 or 4-4, and perhaps not even then.Overbetting aimlessly is generally considered poor strategy, for a few reasons: If you are bluffing, any caller who could call (for example) a bet that is the size of the pot, could probably also call a bet that's twice the size of the pot.Players with a very strong hand may overbet the pot in order to: make it seem as though they are bluffing, and overbetting according to the first point, or: make the maximum amount from a caller who is certain to call any bet, but.Overbetting is usually done for one of two reasons: Players who are bluffing may choose to overbet the pot in order to make it that much less likely that anyone would call.Overbetting can be solid strategy if : If you are almost certain that you have the best hand and you are almost certain that one or more players will call your overbet, you make more money by betting more.This concept does not exist in fixed-limit or pot-limit games, since the betting sizes are limited to at most the size of the pot.In no-limit games, bets are generally made in relation to the current size of the pot, depending on the amount of odds the bettor wants to lay for potential callers.If you have an extremely strong hand (for instance, the absolute nuts and overbet the pot, you may scare out potential callers who could call smaller bets.It is wise for the kings to check or to bet normally, perhaps a half-pot-sized bet, to induce other players to call with their worse hands.An overbet is a bet that is significantly larger than the current size of the pot.Typical bets are half the size of the pot (to lay a caller 3-1 odds or the size of the pot (to lay a caller 2-1 odds).If you are guaranteed to win anyway, why not win more chips as you do so?The Kings, however, should want to encourage calls from players who hold A-K, 9-8, 9-4, or other moderately powerful hands, to try to build the pot and win more money.When you bluff, you want to make sure that you are betting the smallest amount necessary to guarantee that no other player will call'.If you are wrong about either one, you cost yourself a significant amount of money (and may even lose it all!) If you are almost certain you have the worst hand (or that there is one better hand out there) and you are very confident.
Such hands are essentially drawing dead against the Kings at this point, so any extra money they can get into the pot is theirs to win.
The flop comes K-9-4 rainbow.
A bet of 10 into an 8 pot is not generally considered an overbet).
