Tighten up during your period of adjustment

Most of the players do this in fear of losing their money while moving up to the middle limits. It is essential that I need to stress much. By tightening your starting requirements you will have to lessen up your fluctuations and also your exposure to difficult decisions. By tightening little after the flop, you will further reduce your fluctuations. You're tightening before the flop, which means folding a bit more when you would call or raise, should particularly center around the average, small edge situations. Such tightening theoretically costs a little a hourly rate but several players who want to be relaxed at the higher limits are happy to accept this in exchange for less unpredictability, and more often wins.

The reason is that it will allow less than best or expert players to receive a better hourly rate than he would chase the smaller edges, for him, are not actually there. Do not get used to with these ideas of the post-flop part. If you begin your play by throwing away your hands after the flop that actually have good chances of winning because you run into a little confrontation, you'll give up too much.

To illustrate with an example of tightening the pre-flop, if the worst offsuit hands you usually play in an early position are hands like

And

You should try to eliminate them and play only AK and AQ, unless the game is favorable. With the post-flop tightening example, you might pass on an opportunity to raise a bettor on the flop when you hold second pair. You should often fold in such kind of cases. Of the occasions when such a raise is correct, a normal percentage is very slightly so. They can also turn into a losing plays if you have not read the rival's hand well and do not play brilliantly for the rest of the playing poker hands. Hence, you will give up a little and may well increase your profits by passing such raising options (folding instead) during the adjustment period at your new, higher limit.

You can develop more examples of such tightening. The time you feel you have adjusted to the limit, you can reduce a bit weak-tight spots in your game which can be caused by starting to push smaller edges as your skill enables.
