more advanced strategy as a beginner
you are a poker player, you want to be the best poker
player you can be. You know the basics: a flush beats
a straight; the first three community cards in hold'em
are known as the flop, etc. Now you're ready to get
into some advanced poker strategy. How do you do it?
Where do you need to go to get to the next level of
poker strategy is a little harder to come by than
the basics; that's what makes it advanced. But poker
knowledge can be gained and we are fortunate
to live in a world so technologically advanced that
that knowledge is practically at our fingertips.
of the best ways to learn advanced poker strategy
is by reading the literature. There are tons of poker
books out on the market now so you have a wide variety
to choose from. The two books which must form the
heart of your poker book collection are Super/System
by Doyle Brunson and The Theory of Poker by
David Sklansky. Once you have mastered these two tomes
you will already have a good line on advanced poker
strategy and be ready to move forward.
great way to learn advanced poker strategy is by observation.
Watch good players. See what they do, how and why
they do it and how and why it works. Televised poker
is actually not the best for this purpose. Televised
poker tournaments cut out too many hands and only
show final poker
tables, where strategy can change dramatically.
For the best results, observe online or live play.
It's not as exciting as watching the World Poker Tour,
but it can improve your game dramatically.
the only way you will know if your skills have improved
is by putting your advanced poker strategy to the
test. Play as often as you can within your means.
The more you play, the more you will learn, and the
more advanced your poker will become. Good luck.

Poker is another one of the giant poker rooms

low standard. Some sites boast lots of famous players
and pros, but if you just want to win money then Pacific
is one of the best sites around. Good new account
bonuses, nice interface, super fast dealing and clean
games make this site one of the best.
