In general, gambling is a mug's game. There is a reason casinos and online gambling sites exist, and it is to make profit from the punters. Any game where house is involved is where they are making money and do not need to make more money with each game, otherwise they would not stay in business. This is particularly true with online poker and online roulette.
In poker, many people make the mistake of thinking there is an easy out of playing the game. Especially after taking poker lessons from the various poker room or books from remipoker.com. Unfortunately, most of these people never take those lessons seriously. Why not? Because for many people gambling is a means of making money, not a hobby. Winning a few bucks is all it takes to become a broke poker player, even if you are a good player. These people do not see every flop, because they are not experienced players. Give these players a Barcelona card, and you will see a pattern in their gambling. They will come into the poker room, and either play every hand, raise every pot, or fold every hand.
The people who never question their decisions are the ones who are successful. When you question your decisions, you are telling the world you are inexperienced and not sure what to do. This pattern is predictable and you can take advantage of it. Let's say you raise every pot preflop, and you end up with a raise after the flop. What you did is tell the world you were going to bet and if raised you would have to call. Then represent that you were unsure with all types of cards showing. You made your intentions clear, and now the flop is bringing aces and eights.
Using your judgement to your advantage, you made the best play you could with the information you had. The ones who question why they played certain cards are the ones who lose. Whenever you play a hand decide if you are going to bet or call. If you call make sure you have a very good reason to make that decision. Don't question your play, chances are your opponent will be working in reverse trying to figure out what cards you have.
Play every hand as if you paid a blind. Remember players evaluate their cards at different times, but as long as you are making consistent bets preflop, postflop, and in the process the other players are seeing you for who you are, you have established your table character. This will carry over to the flop and on into the river.
When you have a draw, you need to make a low bet. This action sends a strong message. visually it alerts the other players. low bet means I have a draw. I am inviting competition. am willing to make my hand and take down the pot. I might not win the pot, but I will make a preflop raise and win a big pot. The challenge is having enough money to make your low bet consistently. Make sure you have enough money to play until the flop.
The opportunity to do this is given to you by the fact that every player has 'the nuts' at any given time in a poker game. The players are relying on their postflop play to get the cards in the middle, to hit the set or not (a thing you can't do much about after the flop). The best time to hit the set is when you have between 8-10 outs. That's a stat worth thinking about. How often will a player go from 8-10 outs to the entire deck? Very rarely. And don't forget about the odds. The probability of hitting your set is 1 in 3 based on the numbers you're supplied. That's odds against you of a nearly 3 to 1 shot. That's the reason you need to make your low bet.
Imagine what it would be like to call and make a set on the flop. Of course you do. And you get a gut shot straight. Or a gut shot flush to add to your glory. Or a steal of the blinds.
This is a situation in which you must play aggressively. Steal the blinds, your opponents blind and see the flop. Raise not once, not twice, but every time you are on the button. Always raise in position. Never fold in position. Making a postflop raise in position is an indication of strength.
This is also a situation in which you lette yourself a danger to your opponents. They will be expecting your preflop raises from the button and will be taking themselves out of the game. They are playing with a high degree of suspicion, based on your past performance.
