The best advice I can give to anyone who wants to play Texas
Holdem online or offline is to stay within your comfort zone. You should
never play for more chips than you are comfortable losing because the
pressure will simply be too great for you to play effectively. Poker is
a mind game. If you stay within your mental limits, the risk becomes
less of an issue and you will play Holdem poker as it was meant to be
played – as a FUN game where you are in control of your emotions and
your emotions are not in control of you.
Often times I see players who enter big money tournaments
that they had no business being in to begin with. Quite simply the
larger tournaments with the bigger payouts attract the better players.
If you are not at that same level of play as your opponents, you are
simply donating your time and money for a lesson learned. If you cannot
consistently win at a $20 buy-in table, then why should you loose more
money at the $50 tables? Always know your limits and always play
There you have it. Countless hours of internet Texas Holdem
have been played in order to bring you these game winning observations.
Many of the principles I have covered in this eBook may simply be
regarded by some as common poker sense, but I feel the need to stress
these principles once again due to the fact that so many Texas Holdem
players on the internet tend to abandon them. You can effectively
eliminate the majority of your competition online simply by following
these guidelines. Create your own unique style of play and mix it up
frequently, and I WILL see you at the final table!
