Quest for Poker Success



By: paoboi @ 15:07 (EDT) / 255 / Comment ( 1 )

How many players do you know that have read everything there is to know about poker and insist when they lose it’s because they were unlucky and their opponent was a luckbox?

This mindset plagues many players (including me).They believe they are perfect and the only thing stopping them from winning is bad luck. While it is true that luck does play a role in hold’em, more often than not if a player is consistently losing the problems lie much deeper.

If we are going to be a successful hold’em player, we need to constantly analyse our play and scrutinise everything that we do, both good and bad. If we lost a big pot to a fish, we need to ask ourself if there was something that I could have done to prevent the loss. Could you have bet more or prevented them from seeing the flop? Rather than placing blame on the fish, look for reasons that we failed to win the hand.

If you can do this, you will probably find some holes in your game and understand how to counteract your opponents’ play. Eventually you’ll be complaining less and raking in more and more big pots. You'll be a success in poker, period. Hope it helps!
