Mixing up your playing style
It is hard to say if a player made a wrong decision about his hand. You might hear other players or commentators on television that one should have done this or that but poker is not like that. You really cannot say if what a player did was right or wrong.
You can say it is a mistake if you play low quality hands too much, or fold too much, bet even with mediocre hands, or maybe not spot an obvious poker tell by an opponent. But remember at that specific moment you really cannot say what is the best decision to make. That is why you need to mix up your playing style especially when your opponents are quite alert and attentive with your style.
Make the other players guess what your next move will be. Do not do one thing too much so that you will be predictable. You have to keep the other players wondering and keep your balance that you will not second guess your moves and so you are focused towards gaining some profits at the end of the day.
Raising a blufferA lot of players who has a strong hand with a high probability of winning commit the mistake of raising after a bet comes from a frequent bluffer. You can do this maybe once when you try to mix up your style of play but the best move acting after a bluffer is just to call. This move invites the next players to commit into the pot and put more money. Raise and you might just chase more chips away. A real poker genius knows how to give his guy a little rope!
Do not be afraid to give up the stageIf you play wild,aggressive, and unpredictable to drive the other players crazy and force the mistake, you might be used to have the spotlight on you. But what if you have other players who talk to much and also try to disrupt everyone around the table. In this scenario, do not be afraid to give up the stage and just focus on your game. Remember that your primary goal is to bring home some profits after the game and that trying to compete for the stage will not help you especially when you are already distracted by the antics of other players.
