the Fold Vate and the Fear Value (two indispensable concepts)

Fold rate

Friends who often play Texas Hold’em, you will find that in many cases, even if the opponent holds a card weaker than you,
he still has a chance to pass you and win the pot. In situations where your opponent has a chance to overtake you,
in many cases, you can actually kill your opponent’s chance to overtake you by betting to fold.
The payoff in this case is what we call the fold rate.

When you bet or raise, there are two ways to win. One is that you can win the pot immediately if your opponent folds, or show the winning card after all the cards have been dealt.

When you call, you cannot immediately win the pot. Always call, you have only one way to win, and that is to show your winning cards.

To fold, it is clear that you give up this pot, no matter what your win rate is, it will not help. You surrendered.

In Texas Hold’em, there are not many cards that can hold the winning game until all the cards have been dealt.
If you have a hand K 手 K 手, the flop is K ♦ 9 ♠ 5 ♣. Your opponent holds 7 ♥ 6 ♥. If your card does not improve,
then he only wins by getting the inner straight draw or the cards coming 3 and 4. His odds of winning are not high,
but if this hand reaches a showdown, he still has a 15% chance of winning. That 15% is his win rate to win this game.
But if you bet on the flop and he folds, he loses the win rate.

In some cases, when you read your opponent well and think you might be defeated, it’s no surprise to give up a very strong hand.
As a general rule, use as many folds as possible, which means more bets and raises and less calls.

Generally, the larger the bet (or raise), the higher the fold rate. One thing to note about this principle is that in some cases,
full pressure can be more noticeable than a pot-sized bet or small bet. Once other players realize that you will be willing to pay all your chips at any time,
you will start to involve another concept: The fear value.

The Fear value

No matter it’s a strong hand, a bluff or a semi-bluff, one of the benefits of betting big is what we call “fear value.”
Your opponents will realize that you can often use all your own chips (and most or all of them) to take risks.

At any stage of the game, if a player presses all the way and threatens his opponent, the opponent often loses the best card.
Therefore, it is important to understand the form at the table and analyze the opponent’s license range and pay attention to the amount of chips at all times.
If you have a good ability to evaluate and judge, you will often be able to use full pressure to force your opponent to give up a better hand.

Good tournament players are constantly looking for “fish” on the table. The best targets are those who play “weak and tight”.
This type of player is easy to read because their gameplay is very simple. If a weak player doesn’t call with a hand that is worse than the top pair on the flop,
there are quite a few times when he folds when someone bets. These timid players are good targets for stealing blindness,
and they rarely resist (raise and raise) against you, so they are not very dangerous. You can continue to oppress them and squeeze out their chips.

On the other hand, if a player is willing to go full pressure relatively early in the game,
it is also a threat. Players like this are not a good target for stealing blindness, because they are bold and reraise without fear and even go all-in.
These players are not easily surrendered, and too many attacks on these players are dangerous.

Experts will try to avoid mingling with these fierce opponents, because they may seriously damage themselves.
Other players will try to avoid confronting these fierce and bold players. Unless they have a good hand, they will hide.
This feeling of instilling fear in the opponent by this big bet is the fear value. After seeing a ferocious player make a full pressure,
it often gives the subtle feeling that in any pot, the next big bet or raise may be all the chips!

Fear is a very useful tool for you. It will stop a blind habitual player from stealing, and it will also reduce his attempts to steal the pot with a hand.
If used properly, fear can help a player control and dominate the table. The more he accumulates chips,
the larger the weapon his chip symbolizes, and the greater the fear value.

But in the infinite Texas Hold’em game, if you are always worried about being kicked out, and your opponent clearly shows that he is not worried,
it is difficult to use effectively. If you can instill a little fear among your opponents while building your chips, you will have a chance to win a prize.
