The original and still most prevalent purpose of FlopTurnRiver.com
is to help build winning, profitable poker players. Profits can come from solid
as well as taking advantage of the online poker room promotions and bonuses (free money).
You'll find helpful tips and advice developing into a profitable poker player through our
poker room reviews
poker room bonuses
etc. However, our poker strategy essays and discussions are still a vital building block to
becoming a winning poker player.
The emphasis of our Poker Strategy section surrounds Texas Hold'em poker.
Texas Hold'em is the most popular form of poker (and the game that I play!) so we do discuss Texas Hold'em
poker strategies more than any other form of poker. However, in our
, we have
discussions of other poker games and poker strategies.
The contributors to these poker strategy articles and the strategy discussions in our poker forum
range from brand new players looking to venture into online poker all the way up to seasoned professionals.
Peruse our list of poker essays at the top of this page. Everything is also split into sections, which you can click on to return articles related to those, such as MTT or SnG. You'll see articles in these sections on a wide range of Texas Hold'em concepts
and strategies, including
the importance of position
, no limit starting hands,

, and if you're a tournament player, you must read every essay
tournament strategy section
. In this section, there are several essays from winning tournament players
providing insightful strategies for multi-table tournaments! If you are interested in sharpening your SnG game, have a look at our Sit-n-Go tournaments
But take these articles for what they're worth - basic stepping stones for developing and
evolving your own poker game. Poker is a game that requires situational thinking and analysis.
Following a simple chart, or playing the same way in every situation, will only get you so far. Sure, it's enough
to beat the typical weak player, but you can start to make real money by taking your poker strategy one step further.
Understanding and evaluating your scenario, your opponents, your odds, and then making the best play takes experience, knowledge,
and practice. Reading an essay cannot get you there. But it is a start. Read our material
on poker strategy, read other material, read books.
Then start getting experience - play some poker.
