DEEP STACKED POKER IN NO LIMIT HOLDEM PART 2
Author’s Note: I originally posted this on Texasholdemonline.com with this link: http://www.texasholdemonline.com/strategy/deep-play-thoughts-in-nlhe-part-2/ back in 2012. I have edited some parts to reflect some of the changes in the games. Either way, I believe that much of this still holds true.
Due to copyright issues, I have decided I would like to link each article here and write an amendment/what has changed since the original article was published. It has been quite some years and poker strategy has evolved immensely during this time. I will not post the original article here, but I recommend that you read the original article from the link (mainly because I do believe that the underlying strategies/article is still relevant today) and then read my amended notes below.

Small Mistakes Lead to Huge Ones
This is still one of the biggest mistakes that I see in low stakes poker today. Players oftentimes will play one street without any consideration for future streets. Small mistakes STILL lead to very large ones and remember to have a plan. I wrote an article about this very subject: http://orangepokerblog.com/2017/04/25/having-a-plan/
Flop Options and Differentiating between 100bbs and 200bbs
In my original article, I presented two typical scenarios that can be played differently in 200bb situations (vs. 100bbs). The underlying message is still the same in today’s games- with 200bb stacks, you have many more options postflop, especially with aggression. Alternately, if you have hands that are vulnerable or inelastic in equity, such as AA on a 38 7 board, be sure to play more cautiously and not stack off like you would in 100bb scenarios.
