wow not one reply, anyway i studied the subject, through my good friend harrington and trial and error i have come up with this:
try to play every hand with a % call %raise ratio / %call %fold, i have different ratios for every hand i play but mostly will play according to position. If i feel someone is catching onto me i will change up the %'s accordingly.
The super-useful way of working out how to play your percentages is with the harrington watch method, for those of you who havent read the hoh books (and i suggest you do) here is the example:

I find the above technique very useful, it may be frustrating to do this through the whole game but its definetly something i suggest you start doing when the competetion starts thinning out and you know that you are playing against more observant players.
The key is to being able to appropriate proper ratio depending on the strength of the hand, the position and the circumstances, its definetly something you get a feel for after you start doing it more often.
Apart from this its suggested that you never play one style, but merely use it until you sense people are catching on until you switch, i have found that you will make most of your chips when you switch your style as it often throws off players who have tuned their style to your previous style.
If anyone has anymore contributions they are warmly welcomed, good luck and have fun avoiding those reads!!
