Game Choice

Before the Flop

Also playing with the better hands gives you a continue advantage over your opponents. And it helps you from staying out of a situation where your hand is dominated.

During the game

Try to remember when they made a bet or a raise, and what turned out to be their hand. Try to build up a profile of the people you are playing at all times. This can help you when you need to make a decission.

Out of the Game
Folded the hand preflop? Time to quickly check your email, NO! When you are not playing yourself this is the perfect moment to whatch the others at the table, make some notes and really pay attention. This time you are not “distracted” by your own cards and you can focus completely on the other players, and their actions.

But to make sure you learn from this write down after a series of game where you lost most of your hands, with what cards you tend to play to slow or to aggressive. Think about where should could have gotten more players into the pot or less. This will make you reflect and help you learn and improve real fast.
