10 Important Poker Tips

1) Don't play every hand, it's alright to fold

Many beginners often make the mistake of trying to play every hand. If you have doubts about your hand it is the smart move to fold and make sure you don't get committed in an unnecessary hand.

2) Don't play drunk

I can't tell you how many times I have sat across from someone at the poker table and watch a drunk guy throw all of his chips away. Trust me, save getting drunk for another time because it will probably save you some money.

3) Don't bluff just for the heck of it

Sometimes when you're beginning to play poker, many people think that they have to bluff. It is better to get to know your opponents before you bluff them. Sometimes there is that guy who calls anything and it would not be smart to bluff him.

4) Don't stay in a hand just to be in it

A lot of people make the mistake of staying in the hand too long. If you fall behind early in the hand it is alright to fold. A lot of people have the mentality that they have already invested so much in the hand and they stay in for that reason. It is not necessary to get sucked in and lose even more money.

5) Don't call at the end of the hand just to keep the person honest.

I am guilty of this all the time. Sometimes you call at the end of a hand to get a read on your opponent. This is not a smart strategy. This takes your mind off the purpose of the game: to win the most chips.

6) Don't play if you are in a bad mood

Some people call this playing on tilt. Nine times out of ten, the person playing on tilt will leave the table in a worse mood than when they started. Poker is not a good game to get your mind off of depression.

7) Pay attention to the cards on the table

It is very important to know what's going on on the table. After the flop you should automatically look to see what the best possible hand could be. This gives you more time to see what advantages your opponents might have.

8) Pay attention to the other players

It's always good to study your opponents. Try to see if a person always raises in a certain position. These are generally called "poker tells".

9) Don't play too high of limits

Don't ever play out of your wallet's reach. Sometimes playing high stakes can pay off, but the majority of the time they don't. Don't play high limits just to impress someone either.

10) Play at your skill level

It would not be wise to start playing poker at a casino. First start with some friends and work your way up to getting comfortable. Playing at a casino still makes me nervous sometimes and I am there twice a week.
