Who To Play:

Here's some advice that won't improve your game as much as it'll have a positive impact on your wallet...

Find a mid-sized game. This size of game allows you more of a choice of who to sit by. Watch everyone play. Get a feel for who's playing tight, who's aggressive, and who is bad. Note who check-raised, slow played, bluffed or semi-bluffed in your head.

You should first and foremost decide whether these guys are better than you. Avoid games with lots of early pre and post flop raises, and avoid games where it looks like one or two players are about to finish cleaning up some chumps. Very aggressive players can be a source of agony or excitement. I suggest steering clear of those if you consider yourself beginner or intermediate.

In one sentence, sit to the right of a tight player - to the left of a loose player.

Power Tip# 1:.

With the loose guy on your right, you're always evaluating the hand After he makes their call.

Power Tip # 2:.

You can steal blinds easier from the tighties on your left.

Power Tip #3:  

With very loose or wild players on your right, you can re-raise their bets to try to wipe out mediocre and drawing hands.
