Want a really smart tip if you’re a beginner? Try the Tight-Aggressive – or TAG – strategy. This can make the most of your money, avoid unnecessary risks and help you fly under the radar, until you’re ready to go aggressive later in the game.
Got a strategy? That’s good. But don’t stick to it too rigidly. You have to be able to study the table and adjust the sizes of your bets to match the situation. Understand different types of bet – from big bets to ‘C’ bets – so you know how to adapt as you go.

When you’re playing a poker tournament, you need to think of a strategy for the whole competition, not just the start of it. Don’t play the beginning, middle and late stages in the same way.

Go hard or go home? Well…maybe. But go too hard too early and you might not get the desired result. Try and time your aggressive moves. When you ‘3bet’ or ‘come over the top’, for example, it needs to be warranted. Learn to spot the right moment to pounce.
