Don't expect to win $10000 your first day. Report Abuse
Online poker has two outcomes. Either you take your time building up a bankroll and slowly winning some money, or you lose your initial investment. The odds of hitting a $30,000 jackpot your first week are about like the odds of hitting the lottery. You figure the odds.

Join a site that has rake back. Report Abuse
Rake back is a tracker that gives you a small amount for every hand you play. So for example every friday the site will give you a small amount of your rake back to your account. This amount varies from site to site but in some cases it can be substantial money.

Add notes on other players Report Abuse
Many online sites allow you to save notes. If yours does not, then take a notebook and try to organize your notes so it's easy to find a player by their screen name.

Avoid going "ON TILT" Report Abuse
If you play poker long enough, you will eventually run into losing streaks. When that happens, it's to log off and come back another day to play, then to keep trying to win your money back and end up losing even more.

Try to be unpredictable. Report Abuse
Even online, people get to know you. They recognize your tendencies. Try to switch things up at least a few hands every hour so people don't hone in on your normal play.

Don't try to multi-task too much Report Abuse
its ok to have a program like itunes running in the background, but don't try running 4 or 5 different things while you are trying to focus on playing poker. If you have 4 or 5 other things to do, then get those done and then play poker. When you play poker online, it's real money up for grabs. Don't waste yours because you're too busy reading the latest update on Brett Favre's Text Messages.
