First Remarks

By: Lloydor @ 18:03 (EDT) / 78 / Comment ( 0 )

Poker. A beautiful and yet cruel game, all at the same time. Unlike many other games, there is a fair amount of luck involved. Many will argue it's almost no luck, where others - usually beginners - will claim it's anything up to 50%. Either way, poker incorporates some luck: and that's a fact.

The one thing that I've realised in my first 5 months of poker is that I've been disgraced by luck, and I've been rewarded by luck. But all too many times I've heard of players getting angry at luck. She is a devil, true, but it's how you play every hand that counts.

Look at Michael Mizrachi - the Grinder - he plays so many hands, around the 40% mark in fact, and of course he relies on luck because the hands he plays aren't usually premium. However, his betting fools almost everyone that he has the best hand.

You don't need luck, no one does, but when it does fall into your hands, you should really exploit it.
