Mike Sextons 5 Tips For Beginners
Tip No.1 For people who are relatively new to the game, my recommendation is to just play solid poker rather than trying to make any fancy plays.
Tip No.2 If you’re new to poker, wait for good starting hands and play them straightforwardly.
Tip No.3 If you are an inexperienced player, you cannot be successful by playing a lot of pots. You simply have to fold a lot of hands in No Limit Hold’em.
Tip No.4 Don’t get cute with hands like A-3 offsuit, and try to impress everybody by gambling.
