understand that waiting for the right hand
doesn't necessarily mean it has to be a monster hand. On

raise to steal the blinds. But you can only make that
play when you've got a read on your opponents. Which
leads us to key 2.
Key 2 - Play patiently to
get a read on your opponents

money. Sure you may get lucky every know and again. But
in general if you simply start playing hands because you
are getting bored that's the first sign of a novice
poker player. And a sign of a losing poker
Please do not get this key
confused with key #1. If its the right time for you to
make a move with an inferior hand then go for it. What
I'm talking about is you simply get bored and frustrated
with not catching any cards.
Be patient. The cards will
come. I promise!
