10 TIPS FOR WINNING ONLINE POKER Pt. 1...

Specifically, this information relates to the game of Online
Hold'em. Bear in mind that this is more for the beginner and
not the advanced skill levels.

CONCENTRATE ON YOUR TABLE POSITION & STRONG STARTING HANDS

This is a common rule and one that should be adheared to if
one is to become a sucessful online poker player. This is due
to the fact that most online players are involved in way to
many pots and see way too many flops, mainly with marginal to
weak starting hands. It is permissiable to play marginal hands
in late position when there is no action in front of you. The
way to beat these super-loose online players is to just
tighten up and wait for the right cards at the right time so
you can felt someone.


AVOID PLAYING TOO LOSE ONLINE

Again, this goes back to tightening up your play against these
super-loose online players. In the long-run you, as a tighter
more disciplined player, will be more successful and take down
more pots. These loose-as-a-goose players try to see way too
many pots, maybe because of the low limits, maybe because of
the action. Whatever the reason, tighten up your play and take
down those pots.

PRACTICE READING THE FLOP

Since the speed of online play is part of its allure, the
games move at a much faster pace. Being able to immediately
scan a flop and determine the "nuts" or best possible hand,
is imperative. Does the flop have a possible straight or
flush draw? Who may have hit the flop? More importantly, who
missed the flop all together? McEvoy reccomends sitting out
a few rounds the first time you start a game or new table
session to get a feel for the style of play you're up against.


ADJUST TO THE SPEED OF THE ONLINE GAME

This one is pretty self explainitory, but important still.
In a Brick & Mortar casino a player can expect to see around
30 hands an hour. This number can be expected to easily hit
50 hands per hour in an online casino and one must be able
to adjust to the faster pace. There are several reasons for
this, first, the online "dealer" is much faster than a live
dealer in a casino. Second, there is a time clock that
immediately begins to run as soon as the action is on you
which causes an annoying beep when you have delayed too long.

If a decision isn't made 10-20 seconds after this period,
the players hand is automatically folded and play continues.
There is a way around this however, a player may request an
additional period of time when faced with a very tough
situation such as an all-in call. This feature is available
on most gambling websites.

TAKE NOTES WHEN YOU PLAY

This one, in my opinion, is a biggie. On most sites there is
a little "notes" box that you can click on and jot down small
tidbits of information along and along during a game. An
example of this would be keeping a list of hands that a
particular player shows down. Another example would be to
keep track of your own play so that you can review it at a
later time and fine-tune your play. Also, when playing online
at a particular site, one will notice that at certain limits
and in certain rooms, it is common to see the same players so
keeping track of their betting patterns and what hands they
show down is extremely helpful. To this I would add: there are
a few great programs out there that auto track lots of
information, one must just be certain not to become dependent
on this software and use it strictly as a supplement.
