Choose less skillful opponents

...if you want to win money. Sounds fairly obvious, but you should play at betting limits where you can beat the majority of players. Move down in limits if you are having difficulties winning money. In poker, always leave your ego at the door.

Know when to hold’em, and know when to fold’em

Learn how to fold a hand, and don’t be a calling machine. Many beginners keep betting regardless of the board or what their opponent’s actions are suggesting. Top players frequently say it’s the hands you can lay down that are often the key to profitable play.

Playing too many hands

Most beginners play way too many starting hands, in fact top players typically play between 20-30% of their starting hands. Concentrate on higher value starting hands and help remove the luck element of the game.

Don't Play at too High Limits

There are many reasons people move up to a higher limit game than they usually play. Good reasons like they've been winning consistently at a lower lever & are ready to move up, & bad reasons like the line is shorter for higher limits or you want to impress someone. Don't play at stakes that...

Do Pay Attention to the Other Players

When you play poker, you shouldn't do it to escape from being depressed or having a really bad day. You start out on tilt -- playing emotionally, not rationally -- and you won't play your best. Likewise, if during a poker game, you lose a big hand or get sucked out on and feel yourself going on tilt...

New Internet bill.

This whole USA ban sucks. I live in in Indiana and I'm one of the 11 states dropped. Now I've got to experiment with new sites again.

When to Quit

Quitting at this point is to prevent fatigue. Once you get tired you will start making mistakes that you would not otherwise make when you are fresh. There are some clear signs that suggest it is time to stop. First of all you start getting hit by a wave of paranoia and begin to think you opponents ...

Inducing a Bluff

Inducing a bluff goes contrary to most of our better instincts. When a player is bluffing far more then they should, our human nature wants to find some way to stop them. We somehow think their attempts to deceive us are doing us harm. Turn that thinking around for a moment though. Perhaps you shoul...

Do Pick the Right Game for Your Skill Level & Bankroll

One of the reasons you shouldn't jump into a $5/10 game after winning a huge bunch of money at $2/4 is because as the stakes rise, so does the average skill level of the players sitting there. You want to be one of the best at the table, not the fish who sits down with sharks. If you're making stack...

Don't Play Drunk

Countless nights have I sat across a table from someone & watched them get plastered silly and throw away their entire stack of chips. I've been that person too - and there are nights where you're just playing with friends for low stakes and it's more about the fun than the poker - but if you're...

Don't Play Every Hand / Do Fold More

Probably the number one mistake beginning poker players make is that they play far too many hands. When you're just starting out playing poker, you want to play poker, and that means staying in hands that aren't very good just to be part of the action. But playing more doesn't mean winning more, it ...

Facial Expression

Again, many pros try to disguise their entire face by wearing a cap and looking downward.  This is to avoid the classic stare down that poker pros are famous for.  They may try to study your face for nervousness (detecting a weak hand), or even look for repetitive characteristics like a bo...

Watch the Eyes

This is why many pros wear sunglasses or visors/caps when playing, they know that the eyes rarely lie.  For eg. many players can't help but stare at big hole cards, so their length of time peeking is longer.  Conversely, if a player is looking to steal the pot, he may look to his left to s...

Big Stack:

- The first think you should do is challenge the smallest stacks when you can get heads up. Make them go all-in or just call their all-in bet with just about any two cards. - For all other players you should be putting in 3x-5x raises before the flop if there are limpers and call the same with good ...
