Written By: Samantha A. | April 21, 2015 | Posted In Poker News

Playing poker like a pro does not have to be hard. Here are some tips to help boost your profits and performance in your poker game.

  • Fold more often, rather than playing every hand dealt. People new to playing poker, make this mistake the most. If you are playing more hands, you will be losing more hands, as well.
  • When you are drunk, do not play poker. If playing low stakes with friends at home, this is fine, but at casinos you need to be sober. Your plays will not be as sharp and you play may be looser.
  • Do not bluff for the sake of bluffing. When people think of poker, they think of bluffing. Although new player may not understand how. Poker does not have a rule that you need to bluff. There are only certain people and situations this works on.
  • Keep your attention on the cards that are on the table. Look at what is showing and what cards were folded by other players.
  • Keep the limits you play, reasonable. Several people will move to higher stakes for the wrong reasons. Just because you may be winning consistently while playing lower stakes, it does not mean necessarily that you are ready to move up. Remember when moving up, so does the level of skill people have that are playing it.
  • When choosing a game, consider your skill and the amount of money you can lose. You are not guaranteed to win, so be ready to lose any money you have come with, just to play safe. You want to try to be one of the best players at the table you choose, so watch the skill level needed.
  • If the mood you are in is sad, mad, or basically a bad mood then do not play. When you are in any of these types of mood, you do not think on a rational level. If you want to be at your best, and possibly win, stay away from poker so you will not play emotionally.

Remember these tips to have a fun night at the poker table.
