What is the best strategy to play Cash game some tips?

Play according to your bankroll (at least 30 buy-ins) but don't start too high even if you could afford big bankroll right at the start. Start at the micro stakes and play straightforward poker. Don't get too fancy, don't bluff and be patient. That works like a charm at the micro stakes. Once you master that, you can start adding trickier moves and even bluffing into your play.

so in case I have to start playing just like an MTT player at the start of a tournament. play safer and with lower limits!

May I add that not too safe though ;) I actually open with pretty wide range in 6-max and then adjust my play depending on what happens on the flop, what kind of opponents do I have against me, board texture etc. Straightforward poker works in the beginning but the sooner you find your own style, the better. If you are logically thinking player who takes poker seriously, it shouldn't take too long to realize what works in every stage and what doesn't. Good luck! :)

You should play tighter against raises, and raise a lot yourself. The other thing is avoiding offsuit hands except AKo, AQo. The marginal AJo, ATo and KQo can be played in position. All the rest offsuited and unpaired hands are trash. Once you have mastered this down, you’re ready to start earning money post-flop.

Totally disagree with this mentality, even 43 suited can be playing in a position if pre flop bets are tiny.

Well, .., ha ha ha,.. you need couple years to mature if you think 43s can put money in your stack. Position doesn't make from a trash hand a playable hand. Trash suited is still trash.

Would you play 43off in position in the CO or BT? - Why your 43 has got to be suited for you to play it?

You have no idea what you're talking about. Stop spreading trash around here. Stop!

asking for the "best" strategy in such a general way is like saying "what is the best way to get rich?". Just aint gonna be an answer in a simple sentence (or 2, or 3 etc..).
(Answer: best strategy is the one that wins. Best way to get rich is to make loads of money...lol)

For someone asking this, it sounds like you need to study poker basics. I would suggest reading some poker books (Blackrain79 has a couple of very good books on this, but there are many more as well) and posting hands in the hand history analysis section. As a start.

I agree with you, small suited connectors have a lot of potential when they are played right. That doesn't mean that they need to hit, pots can be won in many different ways. And it's a party when they finally hit good.

I agree with Rational Madman so he's not alone in this one. 43s is definitely worth of playing if the time is right. I think you are the one who needs couple of years to mature if you can't handle other opinions. What's with the aggression dude? People can have other opinions, you don't have to laugh at them and say that they don't know what they are talking about. You are entitled to your opinion as well and perhaps you have even won money with your own strategy where you fold hands like that.

There are different kind of styles to play and all those styles don't work with everyone. It still doesn't mean that they are wrong. If you can't win with 43s, it doesn't mean that anyone else can't either. Others might succeed because they know how to proceed post flop with them even without a hit, they have been gaining experience with them and know when it is good spot to steal with them. You can definitely disagree with us but that doesn't mean that we should be shut down. You don't have to be shut down either, just act like an adult without laughing and telling that the only right way to play is yours.

Cache poker – one of the most difficult disciplines. It occurs because stack depth, practically always, is 100 big blaind. It means that players in an arsenal have much more receptions, than at tournament players at whom stacks are very quickly reduced till 20-30 blaind. However the complexity of a game in poker a cache is caused by absolutely small amount of strong players therefore if you are able to overcome this discipline, income will be much higher, than in one or many table tournaments. The first that needs to be considered in attention, at a game in poker a cache – a position. The closer you are to long loaf (a position before blainda), the more widely there can be your range of hands. All the matter is that the more players will make the course to you, the you obtain more information. Such hand as the king jack, there is no sense to reyzit from the first positions, the probability that at players after you the combination will be stronger – is rather high. However, if you are on long loaf or a kat-offa (a position before long loaf), and before you all dropped cards in a pass, chance that at you the best hand it is rather big. Even if opponents will come into bank, on the subsequent streets you will have an advantage, you will foreknow decisions of the opponent, and it will not. Important aspect at a game in a cache poker One more important aspect – bankroll management. As at a game in poker a cache, at a table on real money, having got to a period of failures, you can lose a large number of money in the shortest possible time. It absolutely not that a game in poker free of charge. Here other tactics is necessary absolutely. For an insurance from such unforeseen situations, it is necessary to have very decent stock of means. The minimum – 20 stacks, that is 2000 big blaind of your limit. However such approach will be safe only if at loss of 5-7 stacks, you go down on a limit below where you will have same 20 stacks again. Remember, the bigger bay-in in your bankroll, the chance of ruin is less. Cash poker is full of weak players also because many fishes go there in hope quickly and easily to increase the money. Still to turn 100 dollars into one thousand, playing the CIS or tournaments, rather difficult and long occupation. In a cache, at successful combination of circumstances, having risked, it is possible to receive this sum for a couple of hours. Such players are also the purpose of regulyar, they take chances, and true professionals on mathematics in general and probability theory in particular

OP was asking "Beginning Strategy for Cash Games" you can't feed him with lag style, I know you guys like your suiteds, but for beginner that is not. And feeding this kind of information is kinda mean in my opinion.

I have to admit that I kind of forgot that we were talking about beginners strategy even though it is right there in the title. So I think you have a fair point there. I still think that small suited connectors should be included in the game already quite early on. That's how you learn, through experience. But I also understand the point by mastering the strong hands first and then adding weaker hands. However, I got the impression from Stuey's posts that he is laughing at everyone who plays them no matter what skill level. That's why I defended them and you don't want to teach beginner's to be too tight either, right?

The problem is that once someone is playing only strong hands, more experienced players will spot that quite soon and then take advantage of that. Playing small suited connectors make you harder to read right from the start. So I don't think that's mean to teach someone about the value those hands have. In the end, the players themselves make the decision how to play and pick the strategy that suits them best. We are just here to give them ideas and possibilities to work on.

Don’t play above your bankroll. For example don’t play 5/10 if you’re scared of losing money because you won’t make good poker decisions. Play at a stake you are comfortable with so you can bluff without sweating bullets and having the table know you have the nuts.

I believe that the best strategy is to choose the right time to play and be very aggressive.
