Early Surrender

At some casinos, you have the option of early surrender; that is, you may surrender before the dealer checks the hole card. The higher the count per deck, the more likely you should be to surrender. Table 4 summarizes early-surrender decisions.

Examples:
A) You get 9-4 for thirteen against ace; table 4 says always surrender.
B) You get 8-8 against 9; table 4 says do not surrender.
C) You get 10-4 for fourteen against 9; surrender if the count per deck is greater than
or equal to +6, and do not surrender if the count per deck is less than +6.

Online Poker Guru Tips
 Creating an image that you almost never bluff can also be advantageous. I am generally considered a tight poker games player, and I sometimes pass up an early, marginally profitable bluffing situation to enhance this image. What that does is allow me to steal some pots in the future with complete impunity. No one imagines I am daring to bluff. When you are up against even average poker games players, they are constantly studying the way you play. So considering the effect of any play on future hands should be an important part of your game, especially in no-limit and pot-limit online poker games and especially when you are playing against the same people all night or from one night to the next or one week to the next.
