|Sound Poker Tips From Poker Stars
Here at OCS, we've been spending a good amount of time at Poker Stars lately.
We recently decided to give our visitors some options for playing online poker
and we couldn't think of a better host than Poker Stars. Besides the fact that
they are the largest and busiest poker room on the Web, Poker Stars truly runs an
outstanding customer service department that cares about their players.
while scouring their website, we came across some helpful strategy tips and
basic pointers for new players just getting started. And even if you are a seasoned
poker player, it wont hurt to remind yourself about the simple essentials of
smart strategy, which go a long way.
Generally speaking, Poker Stars
advises all players to become familiar with the concepts of tight play,
aggressive play, random play and the act of capitalizing on your opponents'
mistakes before playing with real money.
If you are first getting started,
remember to brush up on your mathematics (It's a good idea to keep a pencil and
pad of paper to keep track of pots and your bankroll).
As you practice, the first thing you need
to master are your skills in selecting a starting hand to play. But it doesn't
end here. Although it
sounds logical, you would be surprised how many players forget to develop their
playing technique beyond the starting hand, such as avoiding tilt and not
letting your emotions get the best of you as the game progresses.
Above all, every player needs to
remember this: You are not going to win every hand. As Poker Stars like to say,
"Make good decisions and the results will follow". And don't forget to
have fun while staying competitive. Losing a pot is not the end of the world.
There's always the next hand.
