A great saying in online poker is that Texas Hold'em takes a minute to learn but a lifetime to master. We agree 100%!

One quick tip - know your pot odds. Pot odds are very important when playing poker so that you know whether you are making a good investment when calling a bet. The percentages can get complex, but you can use the rule of "4 and 2".
After the flop count your outs and multiply them by 4. Example, you have 5 outs so you have a 20% chance of winning. To call a bet it needs to be equal to or less than 20% of the pot. Going to the river the multiplier decreases to 2. Multiply your number of outs by 2 to get your winning percentage to calculate your pot odds. This rule is not perfect but it is close enough. You can also use this rule when making bets to en sure you are not giving your opponents good pot odds so they keep chasing and beat you.
