"Poker is a lot like National Geographic"

Mark Seif points out that one should come to a poker table hungry, ravenous like a predator looking for their next meal. Search for the weak or novice players and take full advantage of them. Never feel bad about taking all the money you can, since it's not your fault that you win, they need more practice. And remember that your goal should be “take it all, never leave a trace”

Be proactive about getting in the best game, with the best seat.

Ask for the seat located on the position you want or a table change, shyness wont do you good. If you feel uncomfortable, it will affect your playing style. It is also ideal to sit with aggressive players to your right, passive to your left and don't you forget that money flows clockwise around the table. Also remember that there are no myths in any casino game, but following certain myths if you think really exist then do so.

Betting is important

Think about the things you want to accomplish with your bet: Are you trying to build the pot? Or, narrowing the field? Or, make a better hand fold? Keep in mind that on how much you bet will determine the odds that you are giving to your opponent. You should force them to make incorrect decisions.

You must always pay attention

Don't show or never show your big blind at the start of the game. Instead, wait for it to come naturally and use your time observing your opponents. Pay attention to people’s betting patterns and identify the types of players on the table. Take note of the kinds of pre-flop bets that will get players to fold and which won’t. Notice who the aggressive players are and try to remember them. Listen to what people are saying. Some players will tell you exactly what they had and the reason why they played a hand the way they did. It's called bluffing. Poker, as we know, is a game of incomplete information. And so, the more information you have, the better you'll be able to make the correct decisions.
