Choose Wisely
Sometimes you are just not going to find a game that suits your style and you will need to change your play if you want to win money. You do have the option of choosing another table that is more suited to your style but that is sometimes easier said than done. The problem with staying away from tables that don’t suit your style is that you don’t improve as a player. You want to continue to learn and grow as you play poker and that means being flexible enough to change your strategy.

Stretch Out
We all like to get in our own poker comfort zone but sometimes we are better off stretching out a little bit. You might find that your style is very well suited to Omaha but you haven’t taken the opportunity to learn the game. You might be excellent in a cash game but have only played tournaments. You really don’t know until you try and far too many people are afraid to stretch their limits. Change is difficult for most of us but the good players are willing to change and adapt while the losing players are not. For example, if you are playing at an aggressive table and your normal strategy is to play tight then you may have to loosen up your game a bit to win money. To be more successful in poker you have to be open to changing your style and that means getting out of your comfort zone.
