Played poker with my friends last night. Got blindsided with 'The Pretend Fold' trick last night. Should have paid more attention to the player. Damn!
What other strategies are there that I can apply while playing?

Hi jacksmith,

One good way to improve your poker techniques is to read and watch everything you can find about the game. There are many things to learn that can't be put here in a short message. A good place to start on Gambling City is this page about Online Poker Strategies. From there you can move on to some other reading and videos around the site, like this Poker Videos page. You can also find several good articles on poker on the Gambling Articles page.

Hey kattboots,

That's quite an interesting things you have told me. I guess I have to read a lot about the poker game online and as well as watching the pros playing the same. These are the two ways i can apply. Thank you so much for your help. Cheers! Hope to hear some of your experiences or specific strategy.

Hey back jacksmith,

I was just thinking that I should mention that there are many good poker training videos on YouTube. Poker Pro Daniel Negreanu has some really good ones and has also written some books, as well. He is one of my favorite pro poker players.

the fake fold is a definite part of poker. I think it's what makes it fun!

I'm not a great poker player but here are hopefully more than two cents worth of info: read a lot, watch a lot, train a lot and do table selection.

I can suggest you the books I liked:

The Poker Mindset: Essential Attitudes for Poker Success by Matthew Hilger & Ian Taylor $24 paperback on Amazon and $12 Kindle version
The Theory of Poker: A Professional Poker Player Teaches You How To Think Like One by David Sklansky $22 paperback & $20 Kindle version
Poker Math Made Easy by Roy Rounder (don't know where you can still find this book but Google helps and the book is ideal for a NLH rookie)
Heads Up No Limit Hold'em by Collin Moshman (2008 edition) this is VERY good for heads up SNGo's $25 paperback and $31 Kindle version
Small Stakes Hold'em: Winning Big With Expert Play by Ed Miller & David Sklansky (good for MICRO stakes) $20 paperback & $8 as Kindle
Harrington on Hold'em: Expert Strategy for No Limit Tournaments (Vol I) "Strategic Play" $24 paperback and $20 Kindle version and (Vol II) "Endgame" $25 paperback or $27 Kindle edition (both books being written by Dan Harrington and Bill Robertie and can be found on Amazon)
Pot Limit Omaha Poker: The Big Play Strategy $12 paperback / $10 Kindle and Advanced Pot-Limit Omaha: Small Ball and Short-Handed Play $28 paperback / $12 Kindle version, both written by Jeff Hwang if you want to make it into Omaha Pot Limit poker - oh and by the way, since past year poker players are migrating heavily from No Limit Hold'em to Pot Limit Omaha with their action play but there are also many who are looking forward to No Limit Omaha and I believe this will be the next big thing within the next 3-5 years (no books for NLO currently)

As for training software, download SitNGo Wizard for $99 (or get The ICM Trainer from PokerStrategy for free). AAaaaand... ready, set, GO!

Poker is a popular card game that combines elements of chance and strategy. It is a wonderful combination of luck and skill.

Probably the number one mistake beginning poker players make is that they play far too many hands. When you're just starting out playing poker, you want to play poker, and that means staying in hands that aren't very good just to be part of the action. But playing more doesn't mean winning more, it usually means losing more. If you find you're staying in on half or more of the hands you're dealt, you need to upgrade your starting hand requirements.

When you first start playing, it's enough just to remember how to play and pay attention to your own hand. But once you've got that down, it's incredibly important to look at what's going on at the table. Make sure you notice flush and straight possibilities. Always pay attention to what's showing and what people have folded when you consider calling opponents.

I think that many experts and professionals will not reveal their secrets for this game!
