small words of wisdom, from me to me

By: ketchup143 @ 11:12 (EST) / 520 / Comment ( 1 )

I am going to start a cash game session now, and these are the things I must remember:

1) Be patient. Let the action come to me. No need to force a bet when it's just not there.

2) Don't focus so much on winning huge pots. I shouldn't have a goal in mind of how much I want to win...I should simply focus on winning.

3) Remember that stations are stations. There's nothing I can do that will convince a station not to be a station.

4) Have fun. I should stay grounded and go with the flow. If I lose, I won't call myself a hopeless donk. If I win, I won't call myself a pro.

5) Keep every session in prospective. Poker is not going to come's take lots of determination to seek out value and get the hell out when the cards come out bad. I should never let my guard done, or assume anything.

6) Play the game that's profitable. I shouldn't always look for the games with the most action. I should play against opponents that fit my style, even if it's not the specific game I had in mind before the session began.

That's all I got. GL out there, it's a real jungle
