Internet Poker - 13 Rules to Follow


Add bad poker players to your buddy list

Playing poker is much nicer to play against bad players than good players. If you find a bad player add him/her to your buddy list. Looking at your buddy list occasionally you will notice if he/she is playing or coming into a poker table. Using 'search player' is easy way to find your buddy. Then double click a table where your buddy player is and start gambling. Some players have chosen an option "Hide me from search". Search option does not show you where these players are but tells you if they are online.Take the advantage of deposit bonusesCasino poker sites are offering different kinds of deposit bonuses. These bonuses are worth to utilize. Why to avoid taking advantage of them if you are playing at a web site anyway...

Write notes of all players

I can not stress this too much. Make notes! If you find a player playing poker a certain way, repeating this way again and again, make notes for yourself. There are so many players that nobody can remember the weaknesses and strengts of each poker player. At least write notes about good/bad players.

Use 4-coloured card deck

Why? It is worth to use four colored card deck if you are playing at more than one table simultaneously. Almost every player has done a mistake reading a card that is not you wanted to be. Especially in the end of long poker session this is very important. So use 4-coloured card deck.

Sneak out a hand history what your buddy played

This is a nice feature if available so use it. This way you can learn the way your 'friends' are playing poker. If a game goes to show-down but your buddy hits his/her cards to deck it would be nice to see what cards he/she was playing.

Do not pay extra blind

Start playing poker at a table from big blind. There is no point to hurry and pay an extra blind to start playing. But acting this way some players may think that now there came a pro playing poker. You can relieve this effect by paying that extra from button or cut off.

Play all 'free' hands

When you are going to end up your game at a table do not waste your payed blinds. Leave a table only at ' under gun' (first seat after blinds). Be careful using auto-post-blinds button. It is better to push off playing your final rounds.

Observe players one round

If you are playing just one table and there are only unknown players at a table it is good idea to observe those players one round. In other words let blinds pass once (you are 'sit-out') so you can observe the way or style players are playing. You can also make notes during this warm-up round.

Keep your computer speakers' volume on

A man is a curious thingi.He uses his/her every instincts analysing different situations. When you keep computer voices on that feedback information coming through your ears can complete that what you see. But in long term these voices can also harm you so remember not to play too long.

Learn to leave table

You must pay attention to leaving a game at a certain table. Are there a lot of new players? Are those players good or bad? It is not use to trying get back your losses (you start playing bad), just quit. If that game is going to be short-handed it is better to leave if you can not play it properly. It is quite different game to play than long-hand game (full table).

Make big enough buy-in

In limit games this has no effect in tactics but playing pot and no limit games this has a big meaning. But it is still important to make your buy-in big enough. There is no point to get a situation where you flop your full hand and you do not have enough money to take full advantage of that situation.

Do not be afraid of loosing money

If you are afraid loosing this pot you are giving advantage to other players. So play just those money you can loose and the size of game you can play at your best without fearing anything.

Do not play $5 sit-and-go

There is no problem if you do not have money. Go at least one size bigger tables (sit-an-go) because at $5 table rake is $1 ( 20%) and at $10 table rake is $1 (10%).
