The 3 Big Tips for continuous Online Poker Success
So just what are the three biggest tips that a successful player can offer a novice for how to make money playing online poker and how to make it regularly? I sometimes get asked to quote “golden rules” and “tips” but to condense it down into the three biggest ones that are above all others is a tough proposition. However I will attempt to do so here and quote what I believe are the three biggest areas that you need to address to make money playing online poker.
1. Dovetail your skill level
Poker is obviously about making money but you can only do that by being better than your opponents. This is a vital two-step process of first understanding your own skill level and also that of your opponents. If you understand neither then you will simply be jumping into too many online poker games where the average skill level of your opponents forbids you from being able to make money long term.
This is really what makes many players become over confident in online poker because they initially make money by being on the right side of variance despite them not selecting the proper games and are ultimately –EV.
2. Take the “free” money available
The best online poker players and by the best then I am referring to the winners all take whatever money is available. So if the best players do this then why should you neglect this area of the game? Whether it is sign up bonuses, rewards, free rolls, re-load bonuses or whatever then it makes no difference.
The extra income that is above and beyond your normal earn rate that is derived from the actual games themselves can literally be the big difference between you being either a winning or a losing poker player.
3. Never stop studying…..ever
Poker is not a game where you can learn a few simple rules and then use them forever. It is a more complex game than say noughts and crosses where simple rules are effective and never deviate. But online poker is constantly evolving and shifting and so strategies and tactics that were previously successful may no longer work.
This means that you need to stay on the ball with the educational part of the game. Continue to buy and study books with all of the latest poker theory in them. Continue to read strategy articles and join forums and learn from others. Also you can join coaching sites and maybe take on a poker coach. If you can be serious about your online poker then this one quality alone will elevate you above all of the recreational fun players that inhabit online poker.
So the best and the most important online poker tips have nothing to do with actually playing poker hands. But this is how it should be because in most fields then the most important tactics and strategies for success are usually far deeper than what is first imagined.
If you can make $300/month from outside sources and your over the table play breaks even then this $300/month then becomes your earn rate and your profits…….it can literally be the difference between winning and losing.
