To be honest: There is no secret. (Or at least not that I am aware of :P)
I just play poker. To be honest: I've never even read a poker book. So I'm afraid I can't be of much help if you ask me for the "killer tip."
Of course I will not leave you empty-handed. My advice is as simple as it is effective: try to focus on other games apart from your main game.
90% of all players play mainly No-Limit Texas Hold'em. (Especially on the Internet, where the bulk of the games are NLHE short-handed ring games nowadays.)
You may wonder why you should even bother trying a game in which you are not as skilled as your regular game. It probably seems like a waste of time.
There are a few reasons that justify the effort, though:
- Playing a different game improves your overall "card sense."
- Since a lot of people focus solely on NLHE, you might find games that are much easier to beat.
- NLHE is the most popular game at the moment, but Steve Wong (Steve@888.com)
