When I have a premium hand. I try not to put more than a pot on the table. Sometimes I put 1/2. And on the river I very rarely put all-in because I think that my opponent will fold. I think this should be done gradually. Because the opponent will suspect something if I put 100 on the flop, the turn of 350 and 1,700 on the river. As you increase the bank?
Consider what is on the flop first. Consider what position you are in. Consider if he called your raise or you called his raise. Remember, you are not going to win a tournament/ cash table off of ONE hand. Bet when you have to. Don't worry if he's going to fold on the river...you should have that as a goal, not to avoid. Accumulating chips takes a lot of grinding and the right opportunity. Don't be over excited when you have the nuts....look at the position, pot, and what happened during previous hands and what happened on the streets and think! So if you're not too sure when to not bet, just look out for draws and possible hands within his range. But never miss out on an opportunity to bet for value. Just review your hands and see how it could've been better. Just remember those positions and when you're at it again, be more careful this time. Forgetting how you won hands and just remembering how you lost them won't make you a better poker player. You'll just be more scared. So review your hands with friends (recommended). It's just like school. Don't just take the exam without studying, duh :P
