  • Remember that players generally play tighter, particularly in three-bet pots
  • Know position is still as crucial to success as ever
  • Make notes, which will be of great help
  • Steal liberally from late position unless you have notes dissuading you from doing so
  • Three-bet late position raises lighter than you would usually
  • Take plenty of stabs on the flop with continuation bets
  • Size bets smaller for button steals and continuation bets
