Don’t play bad hands: Limit your game to pocket pairs, Suited Aces(a suited A-4,A-5) Ace King off suit , or suited connecting cards. For now, all the other hands are just not worth playing and you should just throw them away. This requires great patience.
Be aggressive: You’ve waited for solid hands, now its time to pound your opponents. Raise before the flop and if you hit your hand keep firing bullets, but don’t go nuts , one pair won’t often win big pots. When you play aggressive , you force your opponent into the defensive. You also force a lot of people out , making it less likely for someone to make a better hand than you.
Play your position: When you are later to act in a round of betting you are at great advantage. This is helpful against predictable players who check with weak hands and raise with good hands. You can play marginal hands and bet when they check to you. You can also re-raise players who bluff to much.
Be Selective Poker is literally a selectivity game. Every player gets a similar amount of both good and bad hands, but the winner is separated from the rest by how they handle these hands. Selectivity is one way you can have an edge over others. Always to have an advantage, enter with a hand, irrespective of whether your starting hand is better, your opponents are weaker or maybe your state of mind is better compared to your opponents. These are factors you can select yourself, by literally passing on any weak hands, choosing your games in regard to what you have observed about the strength of your opponents and playing at that moment you feel you are most focused. Selectivity is among the most overlooked tools, but one of the most important any poker player can use.
Small pockets: Hands like 2-2 ,5-5 or 7-7 lose most of their value after the flop unless you make a set (three of a kind), you should throw them away after the flop and maximize profits after making a set with the right bets for that opponent.
Bluffing: Bluffing is an art learned only over time. You should begin by learning the semi-bluff. Betting with a hand that is not best but may improve with more cards to come is very profitable play. You have two ways to win. Your opponent folds or you make the best hand (usually flush or straight). This tactic works best in later position if everyone checks to you.No Free chips!
