      I'm hoping someone has done some research into this matter, I did a search of the forum and didn't see anything come up.

      Long story short what I'm concluding here is that there are specific times of days and days of the week where one game would be better than another to play based on who is playing at that specific time of day / day of the week. This of course would correlate to a person's base playing style, or the playing style that they are most comfortable with. Some players can say for instance switch gears from tight aggressive to loose aggressive but feel more comfortable playing tight aggressive and therefore cannot maintain a loose aggressive demeanor for more than x amount of time before reverting back.

      It's the story of juniorgolftour Steve Cyr, who was one of the top casino hosts for whales. It's a fascinating look at what goes on when casinos are courting whales, high rollers, and big players. It's a world I can only look at from the outside of course, since I don't have the big bucks, but it's some of the most interesting reading I've looked at.
      Play only the best cards. In the normal game you should not play more than 20-25% flop.

      Select the table. Beware of strict, aggressive tables (low profitability, a small percentage of flops seen) and avoid the good players, because they will take all your money. yaleispblog Look for tables with an average of at least 30% of people browsing the flop and play to the end.

      Observe the relationship of the bank. Declare a bet only if the ratio of the bank rate to make this possible (read the article - Value to the size of the bank rate | Pot Odds).
      Always analyze the relative strength of their hands. Adopt a rule repeated attempts to guess what cards in the arms of your competitors. Use any information that can help your game. You will never become a strong player, if you do not learn to read maps and game competition.
      Try to remember the playing styles of your opponents. Here are some questions you should ask yourself: Why they raise? With what they are doing to re-raise your bet? Declare whether they end up with weak cards? As they play pocket pairs? As they play their draws (unfinished combination)? With what they say or raise in early position? What are the cards they can afford to check and then raise (make check-raise)?
      Set or raises, if there is a potential win. Structure of the Limit Hold'em is such that the lift should be with any good cards. If you think that your card is best, in no case do not check or reply. Bet, raise and perepodnimayte. Do not let competitors catch free maps!
      Always play with a good kicker. You must have a strong second map. Weak kickers on long distance only lead to defeat.

      Try to pick up pots bluff with the latest positions. When the game is short players, and all before you have a check - you have a good chance to steal the sweat in the late or last position. Doing this is only if you think that cards on the table no one helped. Consider the same type of players who took part in the game.

      Vary the style of play. Sometimes argue with maps, meant to raise and lift the middle card in order to confuse the opponent. Your opponents should not second-guess your actions, is simply unacceptable for them to become predictable.
      Throws cards on time. You will save a lot of money if you learn in time pass. Do not try to catch the cards, if you know they will not help you, act decisively and to monitor the ratio of the bank to bet.
