Learn to Win More Playing Small Ball Poker

The term “Small Ball” was popularised by professional poker player Daniel Negreanu. What exactly does it mean? More importantly, can it be used to increase our earnings at the poker tables?

Small Ball poker is characterised by the following:
– Playing lots of hands preflop
– Using small bet-sizings postflop
– Looking to steal a lot of pots
– Giving up easily when Villain shows interest

Some have drawn similarities between Small Ball and the LAG (loose-aggressive) playing style, but there is an essential key difference. Small Ball poker tries to keep the risk very small relative to the reward.
