Poker Tips For The Year 2020
Looking at the clock and calendar, it has probably already struck you that the year 2020 is here. Change is in the air. Your poker game is never left far behind. Poker is probably so exciting because it keeps evolving with the times and the tastes of players in different periods over time. The game changes along different planes including the rules of play. Limping openly into a pot was once frowned at but is now an accepted move, especially in bounty play, in tournaments. So here are some of the tips you might want to have handy as you play your poker in 2020. Some of the tips shared here for the future could still work today.
4 Tables, Max
This is a significant change from PokerStars. When Zero Percent and Rakeback policy were introduced, including the abolition of scripts for seating, the four-tables-maximum play from a PokerStars player put the icing on the cake.
Notice that PartyPoker did not pass unnoticed. Sometime in June, they said they were not going to allow the use of poker HUDs at their tables. They would also disable the feature that allowed you to download hand stories. The poker community cringed at the decisions. However, while perusing the poker trends we realize that some poker sites have been living large, thanks to the adoption of those rules earlier. So, expect more casino houses and poker sites to follow suit. As we mentioned earlier, change is in the air. You might need to adopt new poker strategies to cope with the rule changes.
Introduction of New Variants
Since poker keeps changing, and 2019 is one of the years that has seen robust tech developments, do not be surprised to see new poker variants. Games such as jackpot tournaments may be on their way out. Just like the gg network surprised players with Rush & Cash, poker sites will definitely surprise you with new games. It is likely that the evolution trend of Short Deck Hold’em will continue in 2020. Do not hold too tightly to your old poker favourites.
Choose What To Study
Now that we agree that reading will help your poker in 2020, note that you need to choose what to study for the week. Trim down your focus to, for example, 3bets or something similar. This helps you to focus on a strategy at a time.
Note down the top 12 stats
By listing at least the top 12 most profitable stats, you train your eye on how your study is influencing your poker game. The stats will change with time as you study. Here is a list of the top 12 stats:

In fact, the changes likely to take effect in 2020 might be more extreme than most pundits realize. However, a close examination of the changes likely to be embraced by providers reveals that the changes will be for the better.
