I'd be interested to know how many hands on average it takes a good player to win a tournament though. Took me 42 hands to finally grab my second trophy.
When you first start let the computer players eliminate each other first. Let them duke it out between themselves so that one or two are eliminated then start to jump in. Try to eliminate the ones with the lower cash. When they're are low on chips (or even you) the best course of action is to go all in every chance they get. They do this to double up on chips or sometimes just to steal the blinds. Whatever it might be, captialize on it when you have good cards.
Some times you can have good cards and still lose. That's just the way poker works. Just be patient. You can end up folding on most of your hands. I think on average I win roughly 20%  25% of the hands. The best I did once was 50% but it's just luck of the draw. Most of the winning comes at the end when it's a show down between you and a single computer player.
In the beginning, when you don't have to pay small/big blinds, just fold when you don't have good cards.
When the computer raises on you and you're missing a card to get a straight, flush, etc... don't ever expect to get that card. The odds are against you. If the raise is too high, it's best to fold.
There's a lot more you pick up from playing more but it's mostly patience. Don't jump into a battle you don't think you can win.
In Hold 'Em the only real difference in hand is your hole cards, and if you don't have at least two face cards or a pair chances are you're going to lose. But if you remain patient and start betting higher when you actually have good hole cards you'll win a bit more often.
The thing that helped the most, though, was actually reading up on Hold 'Em. I used to think I was fairly good at Hold 'Em but realized I was doing a lot of things stupidly (I used to bluff a lot). It's much harder to bluff the computer.
In short, fold liberally and don't throw good chips down on bad cards in the hope that the computer will fold. Because they won't.
If you dont have a decent hand on the flop fold, theres no point sticking around with a 25% or less chance of hitting a card. if you dont know your odds on poker for turn and river heres a basic way to work it out (not 100% accurate but close enough to work well.)
Work out your outs by thinking what cards could be left in the deck that can help your hand
Eg. if you need a king or an ace to increase your hand strength you have 8 outs (4 of each in the deck) minus whatever is on the board or part of your hole cards (say you have 1 of each that would be 8 outs 1 ace 1king so a total of 6 outs) this can work for straights and flushes too (although be aware if your looking to hit two cards running this wont be accurate and runnerrunner play is usually a bad idea)
On the flop with two more card to be delt work out your outs and apply this formula
2(O2) (where O is the amount of outs you have)
So in the example you have 6 outs and do the working of 2x(6x2) = 24 which means you have a 24%(ish) chance of hitting one of those cards on either the turn or river.
for working out your chance of hitting something on the river simply work it out as O2, so with the 6 outs you would have a (6x2=12) 12% chance of hitting either an Ace or King on the last card.
this is just some basic theory and theres tons more stuff to learn out there but maybe this will help a little on the way.
If you find poker a fun and exciting game, then your doing it wrong.
