Playing the Opponent

By: 14u2lose @ 20:31 (EDT) / 1 / Comment ( 0 )
I have found that the safe and sure way to play consistent poker is to play the opponent, not the hand you have. Too many times I have noticed that I couldn't get away from big hands like AA KK QQ or suited AK, AQ, etc....The truth is, you can't rely on two cards to win the tournament for you, your play is key. I am no pro, but I can say that I have improved from a ridiculous rating of somewhere around 5,500 to somewhere in the 400's, maybe 441. This month, although I am a college student and don't have much time for the game, I will look to improve even more. I have played against many people, some skilled, and some that you wonder how they even passed the core quiz, but one thing is sure, I am improving fast. Look for my screen name at the top of the leaderboard this month!!!!! Good luck everyone
