Tell us more about your game.

What tables are you playing??? NL2, NL5, NL10, NL25, NL 50 ......

Do you play 6 or 10 handed tables???

I think the best tactic depend on what level are u playing. For example in microstakes in much better to play tight.

Play with the minimum buy-in, when you make 150% or more of your buy-in get out , and enter again with minimum buy-in. Play micro, yes you donțt win more in less time, but you dont loose more after few hands. And depends, if 6 or 9 handed. In 6 handed if you play in the bigger BB, you loose more, since you may get dead cards few hands and you lost money from SB and BB... If i loose 2-3 times i just close the poker platform and doing something else. On PS and FT i saw you just cant play aggressive, i dont know they just enter with any cards and they have luck. On Winner Poker, Speed Holdem i play very aggressive and won. There are some who try to steal the pot, with minimum raise, i raise with $0.05 more and they fold Cool .

Oh Oh Oh and and try to mark the ppls you play with a color. So next time meet them you know how they play. Aggressively, fish, donks, tight etc.

Have a nice day/night and GL.

I can't say much about other levels but I can give a few tips on NL10. You should play full ring and play pretty tight. No raising AJos utg Big Smile don't bluff until you have a bit of experience to know when you can take pots.
If you raise and get reraised don't call with hands that can get you into bother say kj or JQ AJ you will normally only get action from people who have something or are on a good draw so be cautious if your hand isn't great and you are getting action. Say top pair or an over pair on a low board someone could have a set or a bigger over pair.

Best thing to remember tho is that there will always be a better spot and you don't have to wait that long for it. You don't need to waste your money playing mediocre hands because you don't have to wait that long to get a good one.
Same with every new variant tho, the more you play the better you'll get as you will see more and more situations that you can learn from.
HTH and it's not me just waffling on lol
Good luck bud. I hope you do well Thumbs Up

I like playing the zoom thing....but because you can never get a read on anybody's style of play,...it's better to play relatively tight...and pretty much just play the more premium hands!

My general rule of thumb is,...the higher the buy in,...the looser you can play. More donks and bingo queens tend to play the lower buy ins.

Get rich dude...! Smile

as with anything else in life, same rules work: practice a lot & learn constantly. of course to practice a lot you must have a sufficient roll. there a re no golden rules/tips- cause one thing works well for one dude, but is a complete failure to other...have a go yourself- spot where you're leaking money & try to fix those holes.

I love trapping with sets on zoom poker, and i always go with the min buyin to hopefully get some donk with a massive chip stack to try and bully you....I do rather well however I have many ups and downs!

1 Automatic fold with bad hands.
2 Bluff more often in middle positions, But never with bad hands.
3 KEEP WRITING NOTES ON PLAYERS - this might seems odd, but because of the enormous number of hands, you meet the same players pretty much.
4 along with point 4 - I use a very short way to write my remarks, for example:
a) f - fold. f2 - two folds. etc....
b) reX, rmX, rlX - raise early/middle/late position where X means number of times.
c) rrX - re-raise. X again is the number of times.
d) pb - protect blinds.
and some more....

Good luck all, Dollar Dollar
