The winning poker strategy when your play online poker games is to take players notes. This concept is extremely important when playing poker for real money online. Not taking notes on your opponents is a costly habit. Especially beginners fall into this trap.

Taking players notes is one of the main advantages online poker has over casino-room poker, and it’s a winning poker strategy. Because online you cannot see your opponents, it is much more difficult to analyze any tells or habits that your opponents may have. Moreover, these tells are a lot less reliable than in real life – if only for the fact that sometimes two or three people play under the same account.

Daniel Negreanu once said, “In my opinion, she is without a double the best female poker player on the planet, but that’s not a fair title at all. She is also one of the best all-around players in the world – period!”
