I’m going to be posting snippets from my books. Just some little nuggets that will help you win more Texas Holdem tournaments.

OK – Win may be a bit too optimistic term. Let’s use “place in the money” instead. For that’s always my goal – to get paid. If you follow my advice you’ll often get to the final table and be among those that get paid.

So my first piece of free advice is my number one rule when it comes to getting paid in Texas Holdem tournaments.

Never put all your chips in a pot unless you know for a fact that you’re getting them back. If you go on feelings, percentages, hunches, or anything other than fact; you lessen your chances on making money.

I say in my books, “I’m not here to teach you to gamble. I’m here to help you earn money playing Texas Holdem tournaments.” And if you follow this one simple rule you’ll do just that.

It takes patience and discipline to play by this rule. Face it, most poker players gamble. But that’s your advantage. You wait until you’re unbeatable and hope a gambler calls you. And here’s a news flash for you — Gamblers like to gamble!

Of course, that means there’s going to be the suckouts that hold 2/7 and flop 2/7 against your A/A. But that’s poker. And that’s why we never put all our chips in a pot unless we know for a fact that we’re getting them back.

I’m not sure if this will be a weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly series. But I will be posting these little tips every so often so you don’t have to wait for the release of the next book. Besides – I like talking poker (but never at the table).

    I’ve decided to not give free advice on a schedule. But stay tuned, because I will be randomly giving free advice. As I did at It’s OK to FOLD. More will be shared as time permits.
