Hold Em Beginner

I'm a complete beginner when it comes to poker, i've been playing for 3 months and i am still working on basic strategies, slow playing, value betting, pot odds, all that

Despite being new to the game, i've begun to almost dominate all my friends' home games, always being in the top 3, usually winning(not trying to brag, my friends arn't exactly professional)

So being at this point, what should i learn now?

Are there any tips or strategies some more experienced players can share with me?

There really isnt an instruction manual for poker. Each person learns the game in different ways. I never read any poker books. Me and a buddy just learned the rules of the game and then went to the casino and started playing. After about a year of getting my ass kicked and losing thousands of dollars I've become a very good poker player. I never sat down at the limit games. I went straight to 2-5 NL and learned the game. In my opinion its the best way to learn. Might be the most expensive way, but to me it was well worth it. The only advice I have for you is dont be to worried about trying to spot weakness in other players and focus on not showing your on weakness. Be smart when playing, especially in cash games. Remember you are there to make money. Many people would disagree with me, but I feel that poker is not gambling. I go to the casino and play poker to make money, not gamble. The key to the game is to be patient if you want to actually make money. This refers to cash games only for the most part. In tournaments you can pretty much do whatever you want, but if you want to actually make extra income by rounding then you have to be smart about things.
