Play smaller tournaments first

The reasons for this are many, but mainly to gain confidence at the lower levels if you are able to dominate them. Playing in these small buy-in tournaments, one can receive a ton of experience for just a little bit of cash, with incentive to win some pretty decent prizes if you make it to the end.

Avoid playing too loose online

Again, this goes back to tightening up your play against these super-loose online players. In the long-run you, as a tighter more disciplined player, will be more successful and take down more pots. These loose-as-a-goose players try to see way too many pots, maybe because of the low limits, maybe because of the action. Whatever the reason, tighten up your play and take down those pots.

More soon.......

Tips to play online Poker

Nice and useful tip(s). Thanks. I know that it's seems like such a temptation or trap to play 'loosey-goosey' in any online game. I think it's a psychological thing for me because I'm not holding chips (unless I'm practicing some chip trick in my hand) and knowing that they're worth a monetary value and I can just loosen up the game to see any sort of random cards hit.

I'd be on an online pokerroom/UB table and it would be a small buy in ($5 SnG) or .05/.10 ring game and I wouldn't play a more structured tight/aggressive style - which I'm used to when I'm in a casino or even at a home game with family. Instead I'll call my low pocket-pairs way too often, just to see if I can spike a set or take my gut-shot draws way too far.

But, yeah, don't forget that's real money on the 'table'. Remember that, and hopefully you'll be able to dominate, build up that confidence (and bankroll!) and move on up.

Good luck on the tables!
