1 Play people, not hands. Movement and speech patterns betray what people are holding.
2 Be aggressive; steal small pots through frequent raises to build a financial cushion.
3 Remain unpredictable — constantly vary your tactics so as to confuse the competition.
4 Do the math: The odds against you should compare favorably against pot payouts.
5 Manage money: Earn and gamble set bankrolls. Playing harder won’t offset losses.
