The Scandinavian Float


In this article
  • Why the float is an important weapon in your post flop game
  • When to float in MTTs
  • How the float works street by street

If you're an experienced cash game player, you probably know what "floating" means. It's calling a bet on the flop (or sometimes on the turn) with not much of a hand, but with the intention of stealing the pot on the turn or the river. It's often much better than raising, because we can represent a wider range of hands by floating.


That's not the entire article...

I've been doing this for years; I'm one that very rarely plays more than 4 tables at a time (I like to notice tendencies and analyze my HUD closely - balancing the lower number of tables with higher buy-ins) and this article is bang-on. Good read.
