It is extremely hard to win if you are only thinking about your own cards. Therefore, learning to put your opponent on a range is a crucial part of any successful strategy. I can even call it a habit, because most of the players know how to do it, but struggle to implement that for many different reasons.
It is unrealistic to put your opponent on an exact hand unless you saw what he has. The only way around it is to put your opponent on a range of possible holdings that he would be playing in the same way and to play against that range of cards.
It is probably the most important tip you can ever get. Games are getting tougher and tougher each day, and it will never be a piece of cake, as it was before. Do not get me wrong; it does not mean these games are not beatable, it only means that players who are not ready to put an effort and time into studying will fall behind.
Therefore, if you want to stay ahead of your competition, you need to keep constantly improving your game and find the best ways to do that. Luckily, there are quite a few options available to everyone.
This topic generates significant discussion, and I do think that many misunderstand it. Therefore, I will try to do my best and explain why you should be learning to adjust vs. different players and not just stick with your initial strategy.

It is hard to find anyone who plays poker, whether professionally or as an amateur, who hasn’t heard the name Daniel Cates. Daniel ‘Jungleman’ Cates, is one of the rare poker players who came up through the online poker ranks and was able to conquer the live tournament circuit as well.
With over $3 million in live tournament winnings and over $10 million online, Cates is truly one of poker’s elite. One might think his nickname came from the online world, but actually it came while playing live games. He had long hair and admitted to being pretty hairy with a resemblance to Tarzan. The other players started to call him Jungleman, and it sort of stuck.

He also went into that final table as the only player to have more than $1 million in WSOP tournament winnings. While coming close to a title a few times, he was never able to put that gold bracelet on his wrist until last year when he claimed the most coveted prize in poker.
