Tips to play online Poker.......

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.

London the sh$thole
Well I started playing on line about 4 years ago. Had a rough idea of the rules and just jumped straight into a $1-2 limit game on Will Hill. Lost a few times and had a bit of luck also.

Then I decided this was something I enjoy playing and ordered 2 books based on a forum recommendation. The book that really helped my limit game was "internet texas holdem" by Matthew Hilger. I think this book is brilliant and really explains the strategy's in detail, but is understandable to a relative beginner. I still re-read sections of it to this day.

Other than that IMO poker takes practice and you are always learning (Either through play or by reading forums, books etc)

I still only manage a modest profit from poker (mostly bonuses!!) but I do enjoy it much more than casino games.
