Hi xDINGERx.

I´m not a really great poker player, only a little winner (1.75bb/100 in 2 millions hands aprox). I´m going to post two tips:

1. Bankroll management. The only thing really important for the start. You will need a solid bank for the levels you´ll play.

2. Choose your kind of game. Cash, SnG, MTTs, and Holdem, Omaha, etc.. And don´t change it until you´ll be winner. Try some kind of games is soooo bad at starting.

One more!!

3. Play poker is the first step. You must 'spend', at least, the same time working with your database searching for errors, etc..

Couple of tips I think helped my game...

If you are first to put chips into a pot, NEVER limp, always come in with a raise (unless you have a plan!), this means you take control of the pot pre-flop, can still lay it down/call to a re-raise, and alot of the time you will win the hand without seeing a flop!

Be patient! Try to stay calm, and be patient, even if you are short stacked. Wait for the right opportunity, then go with your gut instinct!

Have fun! Never play with money you can not afford to lose, scared money is no good in poker.

Never play drunk! (please note I do not follow my own advice on this one) Tongue

Thanks guys all tips are welcome as I really want to learn to be a better player as I can see that improves the game for all.

I don't know much about the maths side of things but i'm trying to learn pot odds and stuff at the minute, I'm trying to watch how others play and I'm starting to win a little now too!

I've been placed a few times over the last few days 2nd place was my best (yey 3 whole euro's but you'd think i'd won lotto lol) so something must be working?

I'm slowly building a bankroll because 1 thing I have learned is you need patience Smile

I would'nt know where to begin with a database so any help/advise would be cool or any good books to read?

Thanks for listening to my ramblings Tongue

I think over the years I have gave out plenty of tips with reasons, look in the poker strategy section, lots of good stuff there.

I think my tip is often forgot or overlooked....

PLAY THE PLAYER

Each hand you play should be played according to who you are playing.
It's not just about holding the best hand, psychology is a huge factor and you need to understand the villain, If you want to become a better player, don’t just look at your own cards, outplay people, you should try to figure out the villain is likely to hold at all times, find them tells and exploit them.
When not involved in a hand, pay attention, make notes, review notes etc.

(something I have done) - Go find a table, watch how everyone is playing and make a few notes, (I used my HUD too) now put something in the way of your cards and try have a winning short session.

Good thread idea xDingerx. It's short, simple, and quick education. And hopefully more than a few people (Myself included) will take at least one new thing away from it.

I'd say a big one is don't play while angry, stressed, or frustrated (especially if you're tilting from other big losses). You'll likely end up chasing, raising, or folding way too often in a desperate attempt to "recoup" losses.

Take a shower and risk going blind.

Start playing only one table at once. Don't be a hero by opening more tables, just because U have heard some people playing 24+ tables simulatneously, if U haven't played poker a lot. You'll see your poker skills will grow really quickly. Isn't it better to get some skill and move up the limits than multitabeling NL2? Even though U could be a great winner in NL2 U can't move up the limits because theres totally different strategy and U can't handle it by multitabeling. Thats my tip Blink

Hi!!!!

I disagree, kiirus2. Even if you are a beginner you can play easily three or four tables at once. Play only one is EV---. Only play 1 table to configure HM !!!!!!!
The tip should be something like 'find the number of tables you can handle confortably', imo.

I agree with that,except for the "get some skill and move up the limits than multitabling NL2" part.
If you 1 table NL2 all day just to make your skill grow you'll spend years playing NL2 because you simply build your roll super slowly .
Also,the actual $ hourly winrate by 6 tabling NL2 is surely higher than 2 tabling NL5,as well.
If you dont have much expirience in poke rthen your tip is surely great,it's a common mistake,but for the more expirienced players,they should play as many tables as they can.
In the end what matters is the $/time invested rate,not the BB/100 or ROI.

I somewhat agree with you. Yes, you can earn more by multitabeling, but for getting better you should deffinetly play less tables at once. I'm a leaving proof Big Smile I got 25$ to my account, lost 20$, then read an article about poker and started playing NL2 one table at once. In two months I was up to 800$ and NL25. Then it came a law in Estonia that I can't play anymore and I withdraw all my money. Playing one table was the main reason why I was going up so quickly.

Why cant you play anymore? There are some pretty good estonian regs playing on stars,girl90ihqdaa (very good SNG player) even moved from finland to estonia,and I'm chatting with an other estonian reg quite often,so why cant you play? Shock

I'm aged 20, 21 needed. I'm actually playing in Party Poker again even though I'm not allowed. I hope that government doesn't follow my gaming, otherwise I should pay some fees for that. Started to play with 5$ again Big Smile withdraw 500$ again when my friend said not to play there. Still, let 5$ be on my account and now I'm grinding it up

a few things ive noticed that help in freeroll tournys is for one early on in the tournament you should be trying to avoid all donks at all costs however those few donks that make it around till just before the bubble.... they are ripe for the taking make sure you take advantage of there lose play during that crucial period of play. also one thing that i find helps keep you alive in all tournaments is running the clock. when you know your gonna fold just you know make em sweat a little someones all in on the flop for like 50k and your sitting with a 100k stack let the timer run for a bit... for one other tables are still playing so you increase your shot at money plus it makes people think you consider your moves very carefully aswell as can scare the living pants off a short stack... hope you enjoyed my tips merry christmas to you Agree

great advice mate... i agree that bankroll management is key to a success in poker and beleive me i learned that the hard way lmfao

------------
a quick way to figure out pot odds for on the flop and on the turn is the rule of 2 and 4.... its quite a simple rule and only gives you an estimate but its quite accurate aswell as useful and quick

ON FLOP
add up your outs (atleast what you beleive are outs Cool ) take that number and times it by four... this will give you your percent (example i have a open ended with two overs: that 8 outs from the open ended and 6 outs from the overs assuming there good too. total of 14 outs so that 56% chance to win)
ON TURN simply do the same just times it by two!!!!

hope this helps good luck mate Tongue

1. just play when you WANT to play
2. Focus as long as you play, get good or bad hand
3. hear your feeling/ insticnt about your hand ( dont fall in love with your hand Smile )
4. Tactical bet or play , find your style not just adobted from poker book.

This is my opinion as beginner, Big Smile Big Smile , I hope advise from you ,too.

I already read good advise above.
