How is WSOP Roulette Different?
In WSOP Roulette you can only call or fold preflop. On the flop, you must go all in, call, or fold. No action takes place after the flop. The only decision you will make in this game mode is to go all in or fold.
WSOP Roulette Preflop Advice
I recommend playing tight preflop. Since you need to go all in on the flop, you want to start by playing strong hands, to begin with.
Use a Hand Range
I recommend using a hand range. This is the exact number of hands you will play with. Using a hand range will help beginners a lot I recommend everybody use one.
The Hand Range I would play in WSOP Roulette
- Early Position
- QQ+, AQ+, KQ+
- Small and big blind
- KK+, AK
- Middle Position
- TT+, AT+, KT+, QT, JT
- Late Position
- 88+, A8+, K8+, Q8+, J8+, T9, T8, 98
Hands I Call With
I also call with A2-A5 suited, all pairs, and connectors when on the button.
I Rarely Will Play Other Hands Outside My Range
I sometimes play other hands, but I mostly stick to playing hands in this range. I have found doing this wins me the most hands.
Poker Position Chart
The following chart shows you what I mean by the positions I mentioned. Being in late position and having the button is the best position. Therefore, I play the most hands on the button.
Why Playing in Position Is Important
Playing in position is important because it allows you to see what people will do before it is your turn to act.
Position is somewhat limited in WSOP Roulette because you only play on the flop. But it still matters somewhat. Seeing the whole table go all in before you should affect your decision to call or fold.
WSOP Roulette Postflop Advice
Avoid Calling with Bad Hands
You are going to fold most of your hands. Do not call bets with bad hands. Unless your goal is to have fun and ignore losing. I would ask then why you are reading a guide to winning more though.
Stick to Two Pair and Better
Most hands are not worth going all in or calling with I recommend going all with two pair and better most of the time. With hands this strong you will beat people going all in with weaker pairs and draws.
I Rarely Will Play Hands Worse Than Two Pair
You can sometimes go all in with strong single pairs, but I would need to see somebody call with worse first to do this. I would make an all in like this against multiple players.
Only Play with WSOP Roulette with a Good Bankroll
This Is a Risky Game Mode
Only play WSOP Roulette if you have the right bankroll to do so. You can somewhat get away with playing higher limits when playing normal Texas hold ‘em If you play well.
But WSOP Roulette has high variance. You will lose even with great hands sometimes because of how random a game mode where everybody goes all in the flop is.
Playing with a Weak Bankroll Is a Huge Mistake
Playing WSOP Roulette without at least 10 table buy ins is a huge mistake. All it will take is a few bad hands you lost a huge percentage of your bankroll. You could potentially lose your entire bankroll in single session.
Grow Your Bankroll Before Playing This Mode
My advice is to ignore the event until your chip stack grows if you do not have the right bankroll. The event comes and goes frequently.
The buyin of the event is changed based on your current club. So if you want to play in lower staked events don’t move up to higher clubs.
Common Mistakes People Make in WSOP Roulette
Going All in with Bad Flush and Straight Draws
Avoid Playing Weak Draws
I do not recommend playing draws in WSOP Roulette. You will need to pay your whole stack to see if you make it.
If you really want to play draws limit yourself to playing strong draws. Straight flush draws are best. People who play worse draws are making a huge mistake.
Other People Will Have Better Draws
Another thing people seem to not think about is if you have a weak flush draw somebody can have a stronger draw than you and make a better hand when you make yours.
You should avoid weak draws like this, to begin with.
Going All in with Nothing at All or Very Weak Hands
Do Not Try to Bluff People
Do not attempt to bluff at all in WSOP Roulette. This will not work. Semi-bluffing works because you risk a little to get folds and your hand may improve on the turn card.
Going all in makes this a commitment, and this is not how you play bluffs.
Going All in with Weak Hands Is a Terrible Idea
People who play terrible hands are going to lose chips. Don’t be fooled because they get lucky and win sometimes. They are going to lose it all eventually.
Going All in with Weak Hands in Multiway Pots
This Is Something People Should Learn
This is a concept many poker players struggle with. Do not go all in with single pairs in a multiway pot. This is a huge mistake because often your hand is not as good as you think it is.
People Feel like They Cheated Because They Are Playing Bad
People call all in situations like this, and they think the game cheated them. Their odds were lower than they thought, and they underestimate the odds the other players have of winning as well.
Not Adjusting to the Other Players
Pay Attention to How People Play
If you see somebody playing very tight and only going all in with the nuts fold more often. If somebody is not joking around and playing tight, you do not want to get caught with a worse hand.
Some People Always Play Hands the Same Way
Bad players will play the same hands against everybody and never adjust their play. I always treat everybody like they are playing to win and playing strong hands until I see otherwise.
Playing Too Many Hands Preflop
Stick to playing a hand range. Bad players play any two cards, and they will lose to better hands often.
