Great promotions at bet365 casino

Arguably one of the most popular areas of the entire site, the Cash Games section on Bet365 Poker is populated with a large variety of different games (Texas Hold’em, Omaha, Omaha Hi-Lo, 7 Card Stud, 5 Card Stud, Razz etc),with games available to be played in different denominations of cash (pounds, dollars and euros).

The site is organised so you can select either the game you want to play (Texas Hold’em, or Omaha for example), which will bring up all the games in that category, regardless of the cash denomination used, or you can search for cash games based on the British Pound or Euro currencies. Our guide to signing up a new account at Bet365 Poker can be found here.

On the Cash Tables, there plenty of options to choose from to play depending upon how many people you prefer to play against at a table, (heads up, six, eight or nine other players) and of course, how much you want the small and big stakes to be in each hand. These range from £0.02/£0.04 at the lower end of the scale up to £50/£100 on the highest price tables.

Once you have decided the stakes you want to play at, and the variant of poker you wish to play, you then click on the room, click join table, select your buy in and then take your seat at the table and get down to playing the game; keeping in mind the following tips:

Tip 1: Wait for the Big Blind before you start to play

On a cash table you never want to give money away needlessly, so when you take your seat, always click on the “Wait for Big Blind” option which means that you only pay this when the button is in position so you would automatically play it in play anyway.

Tip 2: Be ready to play from the first hand

When you are playing in a MTT or Sit N Go game, you are allowed the luxury of bedding into a game and just letting a few chips go to see how players play at your table. On a Bet365 Poker Cash Game, you are not allowed that luxury.

It’s worth noting that when you join a Cash Table, you may be joining players who have been playing for several minutes, or hours even at a time. They won’t be looking to “gently ease” themselves into the game, they’ll have their eyes on your stack and will make immediate attempts to procure it from you.

Tip 3: Don’t expect an easy ride – your opponents are likely to be strong players.

In terms of gameplay, one of the things I noticed, particularly in the smaller stakes Cash Games on Bet365 Poker is that the standard of play, when compared to smaller MTTs or Sit N Go games, is markedly better and players make full use of slow-playing, bluffing and whatever to catch unwary players out.

Even on a smaller stakes table of £0.02/£0.04 a hand, pots soon rise to 50p, £1 or more  on a regular basis because players will bid more cash, more often either because they have strong hands, or because they are attempting to bluff players that they feel are likely to fold.

It is therefore vital that you choose your moments to bet wisely. Playing at one extreme, either too loosely or too tight, will make you an easy target for the better players to pick off repeatedly.

Tip 4: To be a success you need to mix up your play

So with all that in mind, how can play more profitably in a Bet365 Poker Cash Game? Well the first thing to do is to understand that to be successful, you are going to have to mix up your play, however there is more to it than simply sometimes bluffing, sometimes folding, sometimes going all in when you have decent cards. Timing is key.

A badly timed bluff can leave you overcommitted to a pot against much stronger cards so position in the betting is absolutely key.

Another thing to watch for is slow playing, especially on what appear to be relatively weak flop, turn and river cards. You may think a player is just checking to stay in the game, he may be waiting for someone to overcommit to the pot and the minute you do, they go all in with a strong hand and leave you facing a heavy loss, or trying to bluff your way out (which is unlikely).


The quality of play in the Cash Games on Bet365 Poker is surprisingly good and does represent a steep learning curve for the novice player, however winning instant cash from other players is tempting but you should be secure in your poker skills and abilities if you want to play in these rooms on a regular basis.
