Beginners Guide NO. 5: Pay attention to the whats happening at the poker table
Poker is a game of information and the more noticeable you are; the more money you will earn. Attention in poker means much more than just remembering your past hands. You have to keep an eye on everything from the moment you sit down at the table.
