Therefore GOOD positioning is LATE positioning.You want to play more aggressively, i.e. more hands, at a later position and conservative, i.e. less hands in early positions.

When you are comfortable, you can try and move up. If you lose your bankroll, dont be afraid to move back down again and rebuild it.

The best way to decide to call a bluff is to think to yourself is my hand the type of hand Id go all in with?. In most cases its not so you should fold instead of call. If it was a bluff you still managed to protect your stack. Checking the real strength of their hand can be wise but if they re-raise FOLD!Ultimately, the cards determine whos the winner for a hand, but thats only when a hand plays out until the VERY END andallcardsareflippedover. 9. 7th commandment Be un-predictable: Just as you should be studying your opponents, your opponents should be studying YOU. If you are predictable, your opponents will be able to outsmart you easily whereby theyll fold every time you have good cards and bet every time you have bad cards.Remember your position and ensure you mix it up to kill consistency, play some crazy things ones in a while. 10. 8th commandment Know when to quit:Knowing when to get up from a table is crucial and will saveyou a LOT of money in the short and long term.

Youve got to be able to let go and become un-attached from the outcome of the game.The key is to EXPECT IN ADVANCE that things will get stressful and intense. EXPECT that youre going to get rivered and sucked out.The reason its important is because if you let go of your log in and start playing based on EMOTION, youll never, EVER win.
