The Penguin's guide to shorthanded poker

The Poker Penguin, a good friend of mine, shares his wisdom on the short-handed game
I love shorthanded games. That means I love it when there`s only two, three, four, five, or six players at the table.

I especially love heads up or three-way action.

Aggression is repayed in spades (and every other suit, although flushes are just a bonus).

I`ve discovered that if you bet heavily with good hands, bet heavily with medium hands, and sometimes bet heavily with nothing, then most players will fold regularly. The players I like to go up against in shorthanded games think they need a hand of sorts to win. Any hand will do. Which means I punish them when they don`t have a hand, and when they have second best.
