The winning poker player must be a hungry poker player. You finally made yourself a great hand, whewwwwww!!! What next? Now it's time for business. No matter how you can get it done, you must juice up the pot as much as you can. This can mean many different things depending on the type of player you are and the type of people you are playing against. Are you playing a bunch of loose cannons just waiting to explode? Then light the fuse and make them explode! If you are known to be a bluffer, then make it look like just another one of your bluffs .. Easy!! No matter who you are or who your opponents are though, the object is to get as much money as you possibly can into that pot. Be deceptive, be unpredictable. Make that pot look winnable for you opponents. And make that pot look really big and juicy. The other hungry players will try and get some of that juice.
