Poker Strategies and Tips
MASTER THE RULES - If you plan on playing online poker consecutively, be aware of the specific rules set by the online casino site you chose to play with. Often times, poker players can be thrown out of a site by not abiding by the rules and this happens simply through ignorance of the rules. Make sure you read up on the rules before playing.
PLAY REGULARLY - As with anything you do, practicing regularly improves your skills and online poker is no exception. By playing regularly, you will learn the tips and tricks on every game. You can also craft your own strategy in winning more from online poker.
SET A BETTING LIMIT - But only if it's $1/2, $2/4 or $5/10 blinds. This section will discuss the research, the math, and the studies on human nature that prove conclusively that high-stake limit tables are not the place to make money. They are however an excellent place to lose large amounts of cash in a big hurry. The return on investment (ROI) is best at medium limit tables.
SELECT YOUR STAKE - No decision here if you're smart. You must have 50 to 100 times the Big Blind. Any less and your chances of making money nosedive. More will only improve your table 'cred' and help to intimidate weaker players.
SELECT A TABLE - Spend at least 15 minutes watching the play at each table. Review your notes if recognized players are present. Check out at least three tables before you start. Then select the loosest table. To win at Texas Hold'em Poker you must play tight in loose games and play in loose games only.
PLAY TIGHT - Follow the Food Chain Theory. Learn the rules. Understand the odds. Bet like a 'shark', not a 'fish'.
