1) Don’t play too many hands
A very common mistake that an inexperienced player makes is the lack of thoroughness in the choice of starting hands. Do not fall into this standard trap with the thought that “any hand can win.” Despite the fact that there is some truth in this, some hands will help you win money, while others lose. A meaningful approach to the choice of hands – the path to success!
2) Do not bluff too often
At low limits, your goal is to wait for strong hands and get value from them *. Weak loose-passive opponents will call your bets more often than you think. It is not in your interest to invest money in a bank with weak hands. Bluff is not so necessary in poker, as you might think at first glance.
3) Think of the hands of your opponents
It is good to have a strong hand, but to have, at least an approximate idea of ​​what is in the hands of your opponents (learning how to read them) is extremely important. So you can better choose the size of the bet, pursuing a particular goal.
4) Play against the worst possible players.
Obviously, playing against weaker players, you will be in profit in the long run. Try to choose the appropriate tables and limits for the game as carefully as the starting hands. Look at the statistics of the tables, and look for the most suitable for you.
5) Think of your position
Being in the position, you get information about your opponent’s hand earlier than it does about yours. The strength of the position often exceeds the value of the cards in your hand. Try as little as possible to enter the distribution out of position.
6) Watch the game
When you sit at the table, start watching your opponents, feel the atmosphere of the game, track down the “fish” (beginners) and “sharks” (strong players). Come to the distributions in accordance with your knowledge (guesses) about the players.
7) Do not fly to high limits
Poker is a game of ups and downs. Good players usually have more climbs. But falls fall at all, without exception. If you sit at a table with limits of $ 0.5 / $ 1, having $ 200 on your account – you sign yourself a sentence. Lead a careful bankroll management, then failures will not hit hard on your pocket.
