Don’t play too many hands
Playing passively with a good hand is a usually wrong strategy. Our hand is almost always vulnerable, which means that, although it may be a favorite at any given time, there is a danger that a subsequent card will lead to some rival surpassing us.
If you have a good hand, If you almost have a color or a ladder attached , you cannot pass. Goes up!
Don’t bluff too much
Poker is a game of constancy and the golden rule of poker is self-control . Very little will help you win on many occasions if you get excited and start raising bets without control, or you are not able to overcome a bad streak. So lower your level when you suffer a bad run. It will allow you to seek balance, calm down and regain confidence. Don’t even think about leveling up to recover what is lost!
Pay attention to the game
Playing more does not always mean winning more: You don’t have to play all hands. Some rookie players think they should play all their hands. This is not the case, take your time and study your cards carefully. If you think that the odds of winning are not in your favor, do not hesitate to withdraw.
Don’t jump in at the high limits
Do not think about the winnings, if your only goal is to play well each hand the results will come alone .
Pay attention to the position of the table where you are. In poker, the way you play your hand must be determined by the position on the table where you are in relation to the dealer . Count the number of seats between your seat and that of the dealer, starting from your seat go counting to the right (like clockwise). If the number is higher, you are sitting in what is called “Late Position”, this means that you will have the opportunity to see Your opponent’s moves before making your own.
If there are fewer seats, you are in the so-called “Early Position” which means you will be forced to act before most of your opponents. Depending on your style of play and your cards in a certain hand, both positions can be advantageous. Normally the closer to the last position you are, the more information you will have about the movement of your rivals before deciding on your next action.
