Regularly varying your play is considered a good poker tactics. This meansthat sometimes you have to 'Bluff' and you should do it tactically, not justfor the sake of bluffing. The aim is to make it harder for the other players tobe able to 'read' your cards or guess your intentions when it matters.

The next and very important thing is body language and talk. Both of thesecan reveal a lot of how strong (or weak) your hand is. Over the time playerscan develop the ability to 'translate' your body language and what you say,into meaningful insight of what hand you might have.

Probably the number one mistake beginning pokerplayers make is that they play far too many hands. When you're just startingout playing poker that means staying in hands that aren't very good just to bepart of the action. But playing more usually means losing more rather thanwinning more. You need to upgrade your starting hand requirementsifyou find you're staying in half or more the hands you're dealt.

2.Don't Play Drunk.

Countless nights have I sat across a table fromsomeone & watched them get plastered silly and throw away their entirestack of chips. I've been that person too - and there are nights where you'rejust playing with friends for low stakes and it's more about the fun than thepoker - watches the alcohol if you're in a casino and playing for real money. Itmay lead to you playing looser and less sharply if you are more relaxed after 2drinks.

3.Don't Bluff Just For Bluffing's Sake.

Not exactly how a lot of beginner's understand that bluffingis a part of poker. There's is NO rule that one must bluff certain amount or atall during a poker game, but many players don't feel like they've won unlessthey've tried a poker bluff. Bluffs only work in certain situations &against certain people. If you know a player always calls to the showdown, itis literally impossible to bluff that player. It's better never to bluff thanto bluff "just to bluff."

4.Don't stay in a Hand Just because you?re Already in It.

Another common mistake beginners make is to thinkthat "Well, I've already put that much in the pot, I have to stay in now.You can't win a pot just by throwing money at it. There may be cases when potodds warrant a call, you should fold right away if you're sure you're beaten andthere's no way your hand can improve to be the best hand. The money you'vealready put in the pot isn't yours anymore. You can't get it back just byplaying a hand all the way to the end.

5.Don't Play When Mad, Sad, or in a Generally Bad Mood

If during a poker game, you lose a big hand or get sucked out on and feel yourselfgoing on tilt, stand up and take a break until you feel calm later on. Fellowplayers will sense your mood and take advantage of it.

6.Do Pay Attention to the Cards on the Table

It's enough just to remember how to play and pay attention to your own handwhen you first start playing. It?s incredibly important to look at what's goingon at the table once you've got that down. In 7-card stud, payattention to what's showing and what people have folded when you considercalling opponents.

7.Do Pay Attention to the Other Players

One of the single best things you can do is observeyour opponents, even when you're not ina hand. If you know if one player always rises in a certain position,and another has a poker tellwhen he bluffs, and 3rd folds to every re-raise, you can certainly find thisinformation to help you decide how to play against them.

8.Don't play at too High Limits

There are many reasons people move up to a higherlimit 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 higherlimits or you want to impress someone. Don't plays at stakes that make youthink about the actual money in terms of day-to-day life or with money youcan't lose? Even if you had one super-good night at $2/4, resist the urge toplay $5/10.
