? Don't bluff. In a limit game try to be sure you are going to turn over the best hand. When you have it, bet it. When you don't, get out.
? Play for position. If you are the first bettor you need a stronger hand than if you can trail the bet.
? Study the guys you're playing with.
? Even if you're not in the pot, watch every hand and try to guess what it is.
? Beware of cheaters.
? Don't drink.
? Have patience and wait for a good hand. Just sit still when you have to.
? In a high-low split game always play for the low hand. You can make a high hand accidentally.
? Never act as if you are better than the people you are doing business with.
