Question by dunhate235: In holdem what does the term value betting mean?
Is it a bet on the river when you arent sure whether you have the best hand? Or is it just a bet that you want your oppenents to call? I read in wikipidia that you should use this kind of bet with a made hand. That doesnt make sense because 25% of the time some1 has a drawing hand.
All these answers are really different from what wiki has to say. ARe there 2 different types of definitions? And does value betting apply to both nl and limit?
Answer by tipp10
A value bet is a smaller bet that you want the opponent to call because you have a made hand after the river card. The bet size depends upon how much you think the other player will call. You can use this strategy when you miss your hand to make it appear that you made your hand.
