Generally the player sitting to the right of the dealer has the advantage to act in a betting because he is the last one in the row and has already seen others reaction, its easier for him to take a decision on playing more hands at that time. The dealer position keeps changing always, so as to do justice to all the players. The game of poker is all about probability, if you were good at it during your school, then it becomes less tedious during the game. If you got certain cards and you need to get some more cards to make your flush and win the pot, then calculate the probability of getting those cards from the remaining deck is called the odds. Now there is another odd that you need to work on in order to win the game is the Pot Odds.

Always practice a standard raise format while playing.
Hence by building some strategies or situations and being good at maths will help you win the pot. Playing composed and analysing the right time to act accordingly will really help you earn more pots in this game.
