What I find useful as a tactic is to always RAISE your bet. This will typically show which AI has a good hand or not as they will either fold or CHECK your bet. Then based on your hand either continue with the hand or fold.

It can take some time to wear them down as you may only win the blinds, but the hands go pretty quick.

Note that these unlock as Missions as you progress through the game. After a couple of missions you will be able to do the Dodge City ones. Later on, I had just completed the Steamboat mission, you will be able to do all the Empire City missions.

Three in Dodge City (Alhambra Saloon) with "cheating" and three in Empire City (Hoodoo's Casino) without "cheating".

The tactic I used which brought me fast success:
- Your first move with every first hand in the Game: All-In. In most cases at least one of your opponents calls. And if you win you reached two goals: 1. You have at least double that much chips than everyone else, who's still in game. 2. you eliminated at least one opponent. In case you lose and it was only a first hand you just start over.
- Cheat (with the 3rd card) as soon as you see a good possibility.
- Go All-In as much as possible. AI seems to drop in most cases. And even if you lose a hand - you will still stay in game because of the point I made above.
