      I always blind battle against a very tight opponent, but only in the late phases. It's very profitable.

      - Never underestimate your opponent.
      - Always be aware of the changing of the game and ppl's game play change.
      - Don't over think a hand and miss judge your opponent

      Hate to be the combo breaker, but I'd advise to focus on things one should do rather than what one shouldn't. It's more useful when applied to practice.

      - Isolate fish lose IP
      - 3-bet light vs regs
      - 2nd and 3rd barrel good boards
      - raise half sized donk bets etc. on the flop almost every time, or fold.
      - use pot control
      - fold overpairs, TPTK, etc. to check-raises depending on board

      Hmm can't think of any more right now

      -Do not play drunk
      -Have fun

      Don't know, don't know. These 2 kinda contradict each other :D
      One evening after a small party, being not drunk, but definitely above legal driving limit :f_biggrin: , I decided to play coupla hours. Result ~ +$20 (on NL10). Next 2 days playing sober and serious I lost almost all of it (you may find my report in downswing section). If you can resist the Tilt, pair of beers or drinks wouldn't break your game, at least on lower limits.
