The biggest advantage of online poker is the ability to play more than one table at a time. When I first played poker, my friend Dave "Raptor" Benefield introduced me to the concept of playing more than one table at a time, and I gave it a try. At the time, the sites would only let you play four tables at a time, which I quickly mastered. If you win $30 per hour per table, you will win $120 per hour if you play four at a time, assuming playing more tables does not discount your win rate. This is a pretty easy way to get a hefty raise. Eventually the online sites allowed us to play 16 tables at a time, which gave us even a bigger raise. Your win rate per table will start to drop off at this point. Suppose you normally have a 10-percent ROI in sitngos while playing four tables but only a 5-percent ROI when playing 16 tables. If you play $10 games, you will make $4 per hour 4-tabling, assuming you play one set of games per hour, and $8 per hour while 16-tabling. Despite winning half as much per table, 16-tabling clearly makes more money.

If you are a highly skilled tournament player who plays well enough to expect to win twice your buy-in amount per tournament over the long-run, this is what you can expect if you play in typically payout-structured $1000 buy-in tournaments:

There are some generally accepted rules on bankroll management for cash games. Typically 30 buy-ins for the limit you're playing is a good enough cushion to absorb any negative variance. Really though, if you haven't beaten a particular stake level ever before, and you drop around 15 buy-ins, you should be moving down until you can win.
Running bad is going to happen to everyone multiple times throughout their poker careers. However, let's have a moment of honesty. If you knew what you were doing, and were skilled enough, you could absorb most negative variance by making the best play in many other situations. This holds especially true the lower the stakes you are playing. The higher the stakes you're playing, the less this will hold true because the average potential skill gap between you and your opponent will be less. At micro and small stakes though, the average potential skill gap can be gigantic.
There are a lot more short stackers in today's games, and ones that are slightly more competent then they were in the past. We'll define a short stack as anyone with a stack between 15–35 BBs. On most online poker sites the minimum buy-in is 20–30 BBs, so most short stackers will be around this range. One of the most important things when facing a short stacker is knowing what kind of short stacker they are, because your calling ranges are going to vary depending on this.

Bluffing is obviously an important part of poker. Everyone knows this, but many people get in trouble with bluffs. One of the most common problems is that people think once they start a bluff they can’t stop and end up bluffing all‐in. After you get called on one street most of the time it is wise to give up the bluff. However, if you have a gutshot straight draw and make a bet or a raise you could continue the bluff by planning to bluff certain cards. Like if the board completes a flush draw or straight draw you could represent these big hands. So you can win the hand by making your hand or by bluffing on a scare card. But if a brick hits the turn or river you need to exercise discipline and be willing to give up the hand.
Sometimes boards will come down that hit your perceived range very hard and you will have a hand that has completely missed the flop, if you have a very marginal hand and you're against an opponent who is capable of barrelling as the board gets scarier for the range of hands you're representing by calling a flop continuation bet, you may want to raise the flop as a bluff.
Generally, a flop call, especially on a drawy board, represents a range with marginal strength because many players will give lots of action with a draw on such a board if they think they have good equity versus a calling range as well as some folding equity. Against players who continuation bet and barrel too often, but often enough that you will make mistakes on future streets, you may be best off choosing to raise the flop as a (semi)bluff.
