If you are short on patience and like to see a lot of hands per hour (MTT like a fiend), then be prepared for lots of variance in your cash game results. Slow-playing and generally stronger hands shown down are more frequent.
Pushing with middle pairs from middle position is a good way to go broke.
Playing with suited connectors that can make the nuts
[e.g. Ax(s) ]are a good way to felt/tilt an aggressive player with a hand.
A little creative gamble goes a long way to winning huge cash pots if a big pair is trying to charge you the maximum because he thinks you're on a draw (when in fact you already flopped 2 pair or better).
Toss your marginal hands; they will do you no favors. It's better to have two live middle cards than some junk in the play zone (9 ~ A) that can be dominated.
