However, I know a cash game in a casino is totally different (For example I understand you shouldn't flat call that much). Anyway I just want any and all tips you guys might have. I will be playing 1-2 No limit holdem. Thanks for any advice you can give.
It is hard to really give advice because advice is only as good as your ability to utilize it. (Not too mention, advice is like an asshole. You know that one right? Everyone has something to offer, but a lot of it stinks....)
There is no "one size fits all". You could face some regular live grinders and you need to try to distinguish between serious and recreational players. Bluffing may work vs. the right player. Vs the action hungry tourist it probably won't. but vs. a player who is paying attention it could, depending on how your image is. Try to pick up on player tendencies. Try to disguise yours.
Just try to play good, and analyze your play after the game if you can.
