pretty much it. they rarely bluff.
position position position
im not yet a huge wining player but these are the things i have learned so far
The last game I played I doubled up with top pair top kicker beating top pair with second best kicker AK vs AQ. So it really kind off depends on the situation I think.
I didnt slow play the hand and we were all in on the flop. Generally I would think about slow playing if I have top 2 pair atleast but that again depends on the situation.
I have so far avoided going broke with QQ vs KK and JJ vs QQ by being cautious before the flop. Ofcourse it helped that over cards came on the board and that there were 3 players in the pot. My point is that I am by no means a trigger happy player that wont fold a big hand.
Btw here's a question. I have lost 2 buy-ins with Ace rag hands where someone was on a ridiculous tilt making huge raises every hand and I knew I would be the favorite. I was right both of the times he didnt have a pair or an ace but I lost both the hands. I never do this in a tournament but in a cash game I am like why not? Ultimately you will make profit by lets say playing A6 vs TJ isnt it? I know I know the odds
are very close so do you suppose this was really stupid of me to do?
