Master These Three GGPoker Features to Improve Your Online Game
However, you might not be aware of these three GGPoker features that, when used correctly, might spice up your online poker playing experience!
Ever been playing in a home game with that one guy who loves to straddle? We've all been there. Now's your chance to be that guy (or girl) at the online poker felt!
DISCOVER: Explaining the Straddle
On GGPoker, any player can blind raise before the hole cards are seen – regardless of table position. In fact, you'll also be given the option to go 'No-Look All-In' if you're feeling extra confident!
Run It Three Times
We've proved on PokerNews before that running it multiple times does not affect your odds and GGPoker has now brought this feature to its online poker client. In fact, the more times you as a player run it, the more frequently you get what you "deserve" (or close to it).
In order to take advantage of this feature, once you're all-in just tick the box and you can run it up to three times as long as your opponent agrees. This creates three different outcomes for you to sweat, and three different pots for you to win!
You might be more familiar with the concept of Insurance at the Blackjack tables, but it exists in poker as well.
It's easy. Get paid – even when you lose. GGPoker allows you to purchase insurance for the chips you put into the pot when you go all-in as a favorite, helping to alleviate the times when your hand is outdrawn on the next street
This unique feature is available only in the following instances:
- You are the favorite to win the pot when you go all-in
- The total pot is at least 10 times the amount of the big blind
- There are 14 or fewer outs that your opponent can catch to beat you
- There are only two players remaining in the hand
When one of your insured outs appears on the next street, players are immediately able to collect their insurance payment.
