When anyone gets into gambling they initially want to have a go at poker. People like to play poker because they think its an easy game that will make them rich. But that is where things get worse. Poker is not all about pot luck, you have to know the basics of the game otherwise you are going to lose out on a lot of money. Below are a few tips that you should always remember if you are starting out.
Dont Get Drunk and Play
Just as you shouldn't drink and drive, the same can be said for playing poker or online poker, by getting drunk you are more likely to not be thinking straight and you will throw away tons of chips. Having a social drink is ok but just don't over do it as you will get taken advantage of by the more experienced player.
Dont Bluff if you dont need too
If you bluff all the time then you are really not going to be taken seriously around the table, you should wait and then pull off some great bluffs as and when the opportunity arises.
Had a Stressful Day? Don't Play!
This is a relativley basic one, try to eliminate playing poker when you feel tired or stressed. The fact is that you will be the wrong state of mind so become a lot more likely to lose. Instead of thinking about the game in hand you will instead be thinking about your lifestyle and the stress of the day.
There are numerous hints and tips floating around the internet, in my opinion though one thing I can recommend is just do not get too personally attached to a game.
