      Become silver/gold and read articles, watch videos etc.
      And think about your game when you play.

      Read some books.

      I am reading NL holding cash games from Dan harrington. It has 2 parts and is really great! You will learn much about preflop strategy as well as postflop strategy. Differnt styles (TAG,LAG) and how to play them and defeat them.

      In addition to reading books & articles, two other important factors are a) getting as much actual postflop experience as you can, and b) participating in sample hand discussions.

      Hey shmorls,

      The key to improving your post flop game is gaining experience and having played a lot of hands. With time you get a better and better picture of how to react in certain situations.

      In addition to this you should strengthen your theoretical basis. What are you playing at the moment? ShortStack Strategy? Big Stack Strategy? Fixed Limit? Sngs?

      Depending on what you are playing I suggest you check out the Strategy Section: http://www.pokerstrategy.com/strategy/ There you will find lots of articles dealing with different post flop situations. You can also find a lot of practical aspects of postflop play in the videos from our coaches: http://www.pokerstrategy.com/video/


      Last but not least- post your hands in our sample hand forums and try out the Equilator! With this tool you can calculate your Equity with different hands on different boards against various opponent ranges. This will help give you a better understanding of where you can stand post-flop.

      Best regards
