Slow and steady wins the pots.

What I have noticed is that even if you don’t manage to get a lot of money in the pot pre flop or on the flop, people seem more than willing to get it all in on later streets anyway, so seeing cheap flops by limping is a decent strategy in Zynga Poker whereas not so much in real cash games. If you don’t improve, do not bet, simple as that. Don’t try bluffing, I’m telling you it practically never works. People can have anything in a limped pot for example, so if the flop comes 7-2-8, it’s completely possible someone limped in with 7-2 and now have 2 pair. Bluffing doesn’t work often enough on Zynga to make even the occasional bluff profitable.
Yes this is a boring play style, but it’s the winning play style for when it comes to Zynga poker. The money will indeed come slower, but over the long term, your win rate will be much more steady and you will have less swings to your bank roll. Don’t get frustrated when you see some all in donkey at your table with 5 times the amount of chips you’re sitting with. He is on a heater as they say, and I can guarantee that while he may have more chips than you right now, in a week’s time you will have more when it’s all said and done by playing conservative boring poker. Don’t think about the here and now, think about the long term.
That’s really the gist of beating Zynga poker. While you may like Zynga poker as a fun past time, you need to realize that it’s pretty much a joke in comparison to real money cash games. This is not “poker”. It’s “like” poker, that’s about it.. I’d honestly ask yourself if it’s that important to you that you sit in a play money Zynga poker game for hours on end just folding cards and waiting for a bomb hand to play just so you can have a huge play money bank roll that doesn’t mean anything in life. You’re not learning much about the real game of poker as it’s played in casinos and online for real money. You’re not making any money. I would rather see someone risk some real money and start playing micro stakes games online or spend time reading strategy books to at least learn something worthwhile and possibly be on the road to making real riches.
