· Stronghand (Bet)
You are certain that you will be able to make a bet here and not lose
so many players that there will be no pot to fight for. If the table
is loose enough, you can make your bet and keep enough players in.
Or, you are playing a lower strong hand, in which case you want to
get rid of a few competitors. Your bet will eliminate some players from
the pot, increasing your chance of winning.
