Fabrice Touils most important poker tips for beginners
Play the long-term:
As a beginner player, you are going to lose some of the time. For example, you’ll go all-in with a pair of aces, then lose to another player holding a pair of 9s who catches a third 9 on the river. Don’t let these losses get you down. Poker is a game of odds, and they won’t always be in your favor, but over the long term, those aces will win more than they lose against those 9s.
Poker is a long-term game that requires practicing and playing thousands and thousands of hands in a real table setting.
