Top Hold ‘Em at Home Posts from 2013

{ NOTE: The Hold ‘Em at Home gang will be taking a break while the Pro AI level1 of THETA Poker Pro nears completion. For the next few months, please enjoy meta-posts like this one. Maybe you’ll discover an interesting post you hadn’t seen before or reread an old favorite… }

I started the Hold ‘Em at Home blog on January 31, 2013. Full of enthusiasm, overflowing with ideas, and dreading the emptiness of the blog, I posted an article every day for the first month before switching to every weekday for six weeks. Since then, I’ve posted one article a week early each Friday.

The topics have varied greatly, but every article has been about Texas Hold ‘Em in some way. I thought by looking at the most popular articles, I could discover what areas I should focus on, but the fact is that you readers do like a wide range of subject matter. Here are the most popular posts that I published in the first 11 months:

Most Popular 2013 Hold ‘Em at Home Blog Posts

Rank Post Title (with link to post)
1 Stan’s Lists – Poker Player Nicknames Explained
2 Texas Hold ‘Em Odds from 1 to 52
3 Stan’s Lists – English Idioms from Poker

6 Rounders Last Hand
7 Stan’s Lists – Poker Player Catchphrases
8 The Most Famous Hold ‘Em Hand
9 A New Game in Town – THETA Poker Pro

The number one post isn’t a surprise, as everyone likes to know where nicknames come from. But number two is a bit of a head-scratcher as that post has almost no useful content (or rather, the information is too hodgepodge to be of much use). I understand that lots of people search for phrases like “Texas Hold ‘Em Odds”, but my article currently only ranks #39 on Google (#135 on Bing); how many people tap on links at the bottom of the fourth page of search results?

Footnotes:

  1. The Pro skill level is mostly about hand reading, as you may have deduced from recent posts.
