The motive behind it is to give a brief knowledge for new players of poker at the same time quick look for experience one. I just pointed out some of the strong flops which a player generally faces. So go through on it and make your skills up-to-date.

Pocket pair abandonment.

You should almost always fold after an unpaired flop you hold a hidden pair lower than the second highest board card. at this point there is a bet. No matter whether you’re playing no-limit, pot-limit or fixed-limit hold ‘em, this bet almost surely represents a hand better than yours or a bluff. This is a very tough situation to call a bluff since you likely will be faced with more bets on future rounds. Most pros agree that you can not call a bet with this hand but in actual practice, most occasionally violate their own best judgment and call in such a situation.
Unless you have a specific reason to stay in the pot (such as exceptional straight or flush possibilities or a good bluffing opportunity now or later in the hand), you should pass without hesitation when you‘re bet into and you hold a hidden pair smaller than the top two board cards. This advice even applies when a pair shows on the flop, and you have a hidden pair smaller than both the board pair and the non-matching board card. Here‘s a good example. You have... If you‘re bet into, this is almost always a passing situation. While most strong players seem to obey this advice at least half the time, they cost themselves greatly when they stray from the obvious and decide to call. If there s been a bet and a call on the flop, seldom overcall with any private pair lower than the top rank on board. For instance, if you hold a pair off asks, and the flop contains a king and two low cards, you should usually fold against a bet and a call. Pair — ace in flop You should seldom bet and should often abandon a pocket pair if an ace is present. Be prepared to surrender most of the time when an ace flops, you hold a lesser pair and someone bets. This includes a pocket pair higher than the second rank on board. You don‘t always need to surrender But against typical players, you should usually surrender.This common situation leads to plenty of trouble: You have... This is not a safe betting situation. Most strong players recognize that they are usually in trouble f another player bets, but they are not quite sure whether or not they should bet f they must act first. The answer is almost always no. The ace spells danger, but no other cards show signs of hope for your opponents. You‘re likely to get called (or raised) off beaten; if you‘re holding the best hand, you‘re unlikely to win a call. This may, rarely, be a good betting situation if your intention is to win the pot immediately without a fight-but it’s risky. Simply don’t bet with a hidden pair lower than the highest card on the board unless your opponents could reasonably use the weaker board cards. Even then, bet selectively and with caution. In the example provided in discussion, you would be more likely to bet if the flop were J-9-a. Big pair, big kicker Top pair with an ace is sometimes better for you to hold than an over pair simply because it’s easier to help! Of course you don ‘I want top pair and an ace someone else has an over pair Then you‘d rather have an over pair higher than theirs. For example with a flop consisting of a ten and two low cards, you’d often rather hold an ace and ten (sometimes called a “big ten “) than a pair of jacks. In order to help the over pair you must catch one of two remaining queens (however that will give you an extremely strong three-of-a-kind). With the a-i, you can improve by catching either of two jacks or any of three aces in five cards. That doesn’t‘t mean they aren’t some good reasons you‘d rather have the Q-Q (especially since it leaves more room for opponents to have the hands, like a-i, that Q-Q will pulverize), but on balance, expect a-Frequently to be more profitable.
