Train your brain
Maybe you're one of those people who plays by feel and instinct alone. If so, more power to you. Good luck with that.
However, if you're a person who counts on the big noodle in your head to make sense of why that guy just check-raised you on a dry board after limp-calling your raise and making bedroom eyes at the cocktail server, then maybe this is for you.
That is to say, below you will find a graphic put together by the folks at PokerStars who like to think about a few of the more meta aspects of poker. Think about your frontal lobe. Think about your emotions. Think about your physical fitness. Think about all of those things, and then maybe you will be able to figure out Mr. Raise-Calling Server Flirter.
Ready to get started with the basics? Enjoy.
