What are the top ten worst mistakes that noobs make when they start playing poker - especially for money? Is it the mindset or the strategy or the money management which is most detrimental to their success?

I can not think of ten right off the back, but we all know that newbies have a problem of just jumping in and betting more money than they need to without thinking it through.

I think the biggest mistake any new player could make is to start playing without properly learning the rules of the game. Also, as Caitlan said, betting more than they can afford.

let me count some in no particular order:

- playing too many trash hands (ex. J8o, 10 7, K3o, etc.)
- calling with too many hands (playing loose)
- just limping instead of raising preflop
- bluffing too much

and the biggest one is definitely:
- inappropriate bankroll management
