The key to learning the best technique is to practice. The more hands you play The better you get but you actually don’t even have to be involved in hand to pay attention t what is going on. You can easily learn from other people’s mistake rather than your own. Better it cost someone else money to teach you a lesson than it coming right out of your pocket. What ever you do keep your wits about you and pay attention when you are playing, All too many people get drunk or stop learning as soon as they are out of a hand. These are terrible ways to play the game because you can miss out on some of the best information just because you are not paying attention.

No matter how good you become at the game you’ll still come across a bad beat once in a while. As a matter of fact some casinos have progressive jackpots setup just in case of these bad beats. Can you imagine having 4 Aces only to be beaten out by a Royal Flush? Sure, It’s great for the winner because the guy with the 4 Aces likely went all in & lost everything. In these cases the progressive is usually set up as a community pot. The person with the bad beat gets a lion share, The person that beat them gets some and the entire table or Poker Room would in some cases get a little payout as well…
