So I live in California so the only poker I am able to play is online with fake chips. It's extremely frustrating because every player calls every hand every round. Any suggestions on how to better play against these fish? Especially when playing in tournaments and trying to win rings.

Easy tip - If you have strong hand make big bet, they should call

don't bluff the fish without reading this first and getting the maximum value with strong hands, pot bet works really well. Against min 3-bets fold all hands except AK QQ+

Wait for a strong hand and bet bet bet. I remember when i was playing play money zoom on pokerstars i was raising 70-80% of the pot and still getting called.

Yeah that's all I seem to do is only bet with at least pocket 8's or better and so I'll raise maybe 3/4 of the pot then every stupid fish calls my raise I'm like Wtf how will I ever get rid of the crumb bums and shoe clerks?!!!

re: Poker & Playing online with fake chips
Bet strongest hands the hardest very aggressively. Call down or fold marginal or worse. It can be very difficult and frustrating to play these types of games. Another idea would be to play relatively passive preflop and maybe some flops depending on board texture if players are call happy. Then you have a chance to evaluate more information so you can play aggressively on later streets.

Keep a close eyes on these players, and take any notes on the type of poker players they are - ex - fish, 3-bets, donk bets, ranges etc. Eventually they will start making mistakes, and you can take advantage of them-
