      use your position

      What I normally do in live games as there is so many bad players is when im in a late position in raise big because a lot of people like to limp into every pot, so if I have AK and 4 players have limped in plus the blinds for like 100 I would make it about 700-900 so it makes it expensive for anyone to call.

      this will normally make 2 or 3 players fold then if you hit the flop bet about half the pot and you should take it down

      This is just a strategy I found profitible in my live games as so many bad players just want to see a flop every hand so you want to play your good hands against as few people as possible so you not getting you AA cracked by a donk that limps in with J2s

      play your big hands agressive and lift as many chips as you can punish the players looking to hit there draws

      If they are all amateurs I find that they are really gullible as hell! Whenever I hit something, top pair or better... Its very easy to just pretend you are thinking about whatever you do for a very long time, like you are so unsure. Almost every single time I do this they think I have a weak hand... Even when I actually say stuff like... hmm I donno.... haha. Like Im that stupid to say stuff like that when I got shit. Oh and I add in a little comment that I think they are bluffing before I call or bet. Cant believe it works but it does :)

      Try using poker leveling everytime. Don't hurry to make decissions. And use your position as a greatest gun :) you can float many amateur players. And avoid bluffing on a calling stations.

      1st Level: Your cards

      2nd Level: What does your opponent have

      3rd Level: What does your opponent think you have

      4th Level: What does your opponent think you think he has

      5th level: What does your opponent think you think he thinks you have
