Poker Tips

This collection of poker tips was put together by Mike Sexton (host of and commentator for the World Poker Tour), and Linda Johnson (a noted poker player and personality).
  1. Pay attention. Watch and see who's playing in an aggressive or loose way and who's playing tight. Generally, you should try to play the loose players and avoid the tight players, unless you've got a strong hand.
  2. Always be aware of everyone's chip count. Know who has more chips than you and play more carefully against them - a mistake could knock you out. It's usually better to play pots with players who have fewer chips than you do.
  3. If your cards don't match any of the community cards, throw your hand away when someone else bets.
  4. Don’t play every time you have an ace in your hand. However, you can play an ace if it's accompanied by another card of the same suit or by a ten or higher.
  5. Hands to stay with before the flop: pairs (7-7, 9-9), two face cards (K-Q, A-J), or hands that can make both a straight and a flush (8-9, 6-7 of the same suit). Be patient and fold other hands, unless you're in the blind.
  6. In no-limit Hold’em, players can bet all of their chips at any time, so bet aggressively when you have a good hand.
  7. Play fewer hands when you're one of the first players to act, because you'll be 'out of position' and vulnerable to raises from the remaining players.
  8. Do not act until it is your turn; play proceeds clockwise at the poker table.
  9. Be a “bettor,” not a “caller.” (Being aggressive is good.)
  10. If someone raises in a late position (near or on the button), re-raise them a good amount if you are on the blind. Chances are, they don't have a real big hand and they are just trying to steal your blinds. (This style of play, known as going "over the top", is probably the strongest play one can make in no-limit Hold'em.)
  11. The biggest mistake most players make is to act too quickly. When you have an important decision to make, take your time and re-think how the betting has gone and what your opponent might have. Take your time.
