You will learn: – THE BASICS – rules, hand rankings, jargon and etiquette – PRINCIPLES OF PLAY – starting hands, when to bet, when to fold – POKER PSYCHOLOGY – playing styles, table image, tells and bluffs – THE MATHEMATICS – how to work the probabilities and odds – STRATEGY for online and face-to-face play – MANAGING YOUR MONEY & maximising your return – HOW TO BEAT THE CHEATS
