    Not that I follow them, but:
    1. People are not bluffing as often as you think they are.
    2. Don't think about what hands you are ahead of, think of what hands you could be behind.
    3. Don't raise with a hand that you are not prepared to call with if re raised.( this is cash games )

    1. patience - waiting for good hands to play
    2. position - playing in position always gives you an edge
    3. maximize profits and minimize losses - value betting when you believe you're are ahead and dumping even good hand when you believe you are behind

    1. Dont get yourself into bad spots post flop due to bad play preflop.
    2. Just because they are betting doesnt mean they have a hand.
    3. If it looks like Aces and smells like Aces then its probly Aces. (Note for #3 Aces is interchangable with flush, straight, set, trips, flush draw, straight draw, bluff......etc.)

    check/call everything. dont pay any attention to what the other players are doing and make sure you make people as uncomfortable playing against you as possible

    nah im kidding. 1) bet roughly 66 percent of the time so people dont know why you are betting or calling. pay attention to the other players betting patterns and chose your games wisely. you should always play in a game where you are one of the top two players on the table (cash game)

    Spoken like a true nit.

    Here are my rules

    1. Don't play w/ money that you can not afford to lose
    2. Don't play if you are not feeling well or feel you are not playing your best game
    3. Don't play on short time.

    If you notice the general theme? In 2 words.... DON'T PLAY

    The necessary rules are a lot of concentration and a good bluff a good position.
