TIP
  1. Patience rewards most in head-to-head playing if you don't have a lot of experience. Head to head battles frequently have one player significantly weaker in chips than the other, and would, therefore often have several all-in calls.
  2. The easiest way to get better is with more practice. Luck is always an important factor in any card game, but with practice you derive more experience, and with experience you can learn to maximize your winnings and minimize your losses.
  3. In casinos, do not ever touch cards until the dealing is done. It's the best way to not only demonstrate respect for the other players, but also to get an extra glance at each to find out a little more about their personality and read their tells. In any tournament, it's better to keep your head in the game and not lose sleep about being the first to pick up.
  4. When sitting on the big blind, you should at all times ride your cards to see the flop - only halt to consider your hole cards if another player raises the bet.
  5. The little blind poses a bit more of a problem you've already paid some money into the pot, and it won't cost as much to see the flop, so you can think going in on a weaker hand than you would want to call the blind generally. For instance, a seven and eight of spades is a good hand for the little blind to call, still, some non-blind players may not feel at ease calling the blind on those cards.
  6. Your first option, and one often used wrongly at the wrong time, is to check on a round of betting. This forces the other players to either bet, letting you observe the following action for raises before revealing whether you want to continue or not.
