Definition of heater

A heater is a period of time during which everything passes to a player. It can also be a period of time when he gets only good starting hands. Anyone who has ever played poker knows that AA, KK and QQ are rare. A player in a "heater" would have a good hand over a good hand. The heater can be 4 hands, 5 hands or more. It can also be said that a player is on his run-up, on fire, or run good. You have to know how to take advantage of your heaters to maximize your profits.

Maximize your profits on your heaters

A heater is a moment during which we will usually make a profit. What's even better with heaters is that your opponents won't see your cards, so if they see you playing hand after hand and the hands never make it to the slaughter, they may suspect you're bluffing. Perhaps they will say that you are on an aggressive streak and that you want to bluff systematically. If one or more players want to play police with you and call your bets with very weak hands, just to see your cards, your heater could be even more profitable.
