Beginner poker players make a lot of mistakes when handling their cards for the first time. Some players pick their whole cards right up off the table, letting anyone behind them get a clear look. Another mistake is leaving your cards unattended, because the dealer might think you folded while you're actually still in the hand. The most important thing to remember is to protect your cards so that even if someone is standing right behind you, they can't see what you're holding. And whenever your hands aren't on your cards, make sure to toss a chip or a card protector right on top. PokerListings.com. Start your poker journey today.
