How To Use A Poker Hud Like A Pro

Usually in MTT's the table you are seated at first is the one you will be playing at for a long time. Look to NOT play a hand in the first round, unless it a premium hand. And don't play these premium hands overly-aggressive--just play them by the book. Even in live poker you see the same players winning tournaments all the time. It's not pure luck that Phil Ivey, Gus Hansen and all the famous pros show up at the final table of tournaments all the time. Here's the little secret nobody is talking about - the pro players and the "sharks" do use poker HUDs to help them play better! Sure, there are questions if those poker HUD trackers are legal but they do use them anyways and win more!

Ok, so lets get to the point of making money at the poker tables! By far the easiest way to make some big cash with is to play against bad players and with this I mean players that do not know anything about playing winning poker.

Speed of online poker play is roughly twice that of land based poker play. The number of hands per hour in a land poker room would be circa 30 per hour at best, perhaps as low as 20. Typical online poker game would see 50-60 hands per hour, and anything up to 120 per hour for short handed "Turbo" play.

Many online poker hud rooms offer bonuses and incentives for their players. Winning players make sure that they optimise their share of these offers. Simple tips include signing up for more than one poker room to take advantage of more bonus offers and ensuring that your VIP club level is as high as possible. While bonuses will not make you a winning poker player on their own they go a long way to protecting you from downswings and building up your online poker bankroll.

Winning online poker players ensure that they only have a small percentage of their bankroll at risk in any one game. Good rules of thumb are 5% (1/20th) for cash games and 2% (1/50th for tournaments). To some this may seem overly conservative - but players who manage their poker bankroll well are statistically less likely to go broke!

Table selection is often an important factor when picking an online table to play at. I typically look for loose tables where my tight aggressive play will prevail. Being able to pick up each individual players playing style will make you a winner in a big way. Pay close attention to players who play lots of hands and over play them. These players will usually be the first out from the table. Stay focused and pick strong hands to play back at them. More often then not you will be far ahead in the hand. To counter that type of player, there is the Tight player who is very picky about the hand he plays based on blind levels and their chip stack. These players are easy to steal on because they want to have good odds against you.

Finally, don't get cocky about your winnings. It might seem like a good idea in the moment to bet big and try to scare all the other online poker players away, but you can lose big and you can lose fast with this method. Trial and error will be your best friend at times and your worst enemy at others. Take the best that are low and in the middle to start with and after you've been playing online poker for awhile you will know when a big bet might come through for you.
