Jonathan Little's Weekly Poker Hand: Common Spot Misplayed by Many Players
  • Hand analysis: Analyzing a common cash game mistake -- sizing bets incorrectly to miss value.

  • In his "Weekly Poker Hand," @JonathanLittle looks at how incorrect bet sizing can lessen profits.

Poker pro and coach Jonathan Little has been producing a wide variety of strategy content for poker players for some time, including authoring multiple books and sharing videos and articles on his website and elsewhere, much of which is free to players of all levels seeking to improve their games.

Little started his popular "Weekly Poker Hand" series on YouTube several years ago, and recently he decided to switch up the format to begin featuring footage from live small- and medium-stakes cash games.

In the episode shown below, Little returns to discuss a hand from a $5/$5 no-limit hold'em cash game played at Stones Gambling Hall in California. In this case, Little addresses a common problem players make after making strong hands after the flop — namely, failing to earn maximum value because of incorrect bet sizing.

Some of the concepts discussed in the hand analysis include:

  • starting hand selection
  • preflop betting strategy
  • continuation betting
  • timing tells
  • bluffing
  • value betting
  • bet sizing
