Have a clear picture about what might be the size of the bets you will make in the future. The quality of the unpredictability associated with your hand. The skill level of your opponents also matters a great deal in poker.
If the size of the bets you are planning to make at the online poker table is going to be higher than normal, you have greater implied odds. This also means that you can call with confidence the hand that can lead you to improve with great nuts. However, you have to consider the predictable and unpredictable nature of the poker hands you are playing versus, because your hand needs to be alive and better than your poker opponents if you have to win.
Even in situations where you are playing loose with a probable situation that you think you might loose, you should set a predictable number you will be prepared to loose. By knowing the implied odds you will be able to estimate the probable loss, so that you might fit in your losses within the affordability of the poker bankroll.
If your hand is predictable and if your opponent is able to see you will win, they might consider to stop the play and to give up from playing anymore. If your hand is not predictable but you hold a good chance of winning, this can keep your opponent up and playing in the table because they are guessing what and they will be betting more because they are not sure. The poker opponent might be playing with marginal hands that might improve to be better than yours as well. Therefore, it is very important to keep tab on the probable mathematics of your poker hand versus what your poker opponent holds.
In worse possible trends you will be seeing reversal of implied odds which means you will lose as opposed to your expectation that you will win. If you are sure that your opponent might not bet again unless he/she has a good poker hand, then you need to fold if he does bet again. This is when you are able to predict the style of the poker player by his/her normal poker table reactions. You can as well consider the table trends and estimate the options for winning by the open cards in the table. To make a sure decision at the poker table you need to have a clear idea of where you are heading to at the table, which means you will know your strength and weakness as well that of your opponent’s.
