Texas hold'em cheat sheet with some quick pointers

Preflop

Use the starting hand to determine whether the hand must be played in the first place or not

Open raise 3 big blinds

Reraise to 3 times when in position and 4 times when out of position

Continuation betting

Bet more often when: you are in position or the flop is dry or when you are playing against 1-2 players or when you have a high top pair like an ace and king

Bet less often when: you have a second or a third pair or when you are against three or more players or when you are out of position or the flop is wet.

The flop

Take into account -  

(1) opponent's position and your position;

(2) the tentative card hand that the opponent holds;

(3) the board texture; (4) previous history of the games.

Bet and raise when you have two or more pairs and combo draws

The call to make a 'value bet' in the postflop must be based on the question, "Can I be called by a worse hand?"

The call to make a 'bluff' must be based on the question, "Can I make a better hand to fold?"

The Turn

Double barrel bluf cards are higher than the flop

Be cautious with the bottom pair

Continue aggression with strong draws

The River

Do not bluff the fish

Aim to get a showdown with medium strength hands

Fear the river check raise

Bluffing tips

Only bluff when it makes a difference to your standing in terms of the tournament or the stack of chips.

Bluff when the board hints that the opponents have a better hand than you have such as a turn of ace or straights and flushes.

Do not bluff in case your opponents are most likely to call or to timid people who are most likely to fold.

Do not bluff to opponents who have a history of playing only if they have a solid hand.
