1. Watch out for flops that are in consecutive sequence such as 6-7-8, because even if you have a high pair there is a high probability that another player will make a straight.

2. Sometimes being caught bluffing can work out in your favour. While getting caught may not be your primary goal, it will make it harder for your opponents to guess your next move. Nonetheless, you shouldn’t always bluff to try and fake out your players, eventually a really good player will catch on and end up taking all of your chips.

3. Carefully study your fellow opponents. Pay attention to the moves they make during the game. How and when do they bet, call, fold, call, check, raise or bluff? Do they take their time when it is their turn to make a move or do they act quickly? Even though players tend to jump around from table to table online, if you frequent a certain table often, you will come to know the type of players that filter through. Never forget – you can always learn something from others.

4. Keep a watchful eye on the high stakes tables, as they usually draw more experienced and professional players. By studying the actions of these players during the game, you will gain a better idea of what separates the pros from the armature and mediocre players. This is an excellent opportunity so make sure you take notes!
