For those of you would love to raise on the pre-flop in no limit hold'em, it can be a frustrating process. I have found out that the best way to deal with this frustration is just to let it run its course. I have found out that the more you bet an excess amount when all other players either check or fold they will give you small amounts of chips; but the silver lining in this is that even though your goal is to take all of their chips, you be doing this slowley but surely and sooner or later it will force them to play bad hands in bad situations just to save face. This is my tip of the day.
