End Of Year Poker Play Tips Review

Now that the new year is literally just around the corner so to speak, and the time for New Year’s resolutions is dangerously close by, perhaps there is no better time than now to review a few of the basics of poker play. Think about it, even the professional sports teams begin their training season with what looks to be a review of the basics of their game. In other words, in professional sports as in poker play, the basics are your foundation for success. With that in mind, take a look at the following poker playing to win basics.

Start with a poker play tip that at first glance may seem too simple to even discuss, that of proper money management. Yet, proper money management tops this list for the simple reason that quite a number of players that want to be successful poker players overlook the importance of money management and never seem to make it to the next level.

Truth be told, proper money management starts with keeping records of your game play. Take note of your poker games. You are looking to figure out your optimal playing routine while keeping tabs on how much you are winning or losing with your poker games. One additional technique you may want to try here is to actually calculate your hourly rate. Just looking at that number may be enough to prompt you to be a bit more meticulous with how and when you choose to play the game.

Another poker play tip you will want to take some time to consider is that of aggression and when to make use of it in your poker games. Consider the age old wisdom of the oft quoted but rarely practiced saying from ancient times, that of ‘….good things come to those who wait…”. In this case that means not necessarily waiting for the premium hands to play aggressively.

After all, if you end up waiting for those premium hands, the other players will of course be more cautious of betting against you. On the other hand, if your play style is more aggressive even if you make nothing on the flop or you miss a draw then those other players will have a much harder time figuring out how and when to bet against you.

Bottom line: you will always profit from reviewing and practicing the basics of successful poker play.
