Is it Okay to Min Raise?

By: ACEKINGPROS @ 14:43 (EDT) / 193 / Comment ( 0 )
Simply answer. No, generally it is very poor poker. However, there are times it is a good move when you wish to deceive your opponents into thinking you either have made nothing on the Flop or only have a Drawing Hand, when you actually hold a great hand or the Nuts! It is also used to great advantage with Pocket Aces UTG (Under The Gun) or very EP (Early Position) Pre-Flop for example. Personally, I used to do this, but I now way prefer Flat Calling the BB and then Reraising any or all Raisers and Reraisers All In! Min Raises are both poor poker and great poker. Use them sparingly.
