We all like to have a mentor that leads us through the games and teach us the strategies and others like to play the easy way. I love playing poker for real money but historically, unless you were a fish back then, you aren’t destined to be a winner. Don’t get me wrong there are thousands of ways to make money online as well as live, but you have to take it slowly and slowly, the most important is winning.
My mentor taught me one of the most important lessons that I have ever learned. Do not try and develop your skills in a poker room cash game. He knew poker inside and out, and he had been there and done that. It’s a great way to make some easy money, but not in the long run. The reasons are sometimes psychological, and you have to figure that out for yourself. I now know how to play poker on the internet as well as poker in person. But it takes experience, and not everyone has the time or money to sit in a poker room and waste their money, learn the hard way.
The greatest online poker cheats are professionals that make their living off just a single table. It can be as low as a dollar poker table, but I found out that the best players can make over $5,000 a day in rake money. With some very basic online poker tricks and techniques, end up being a pro yourself in no time. The hard part is to want to learn how to play craps, blackjack, baccarat, or roulette with out getting beaten down. When I started to play legit card games online, I was losing horribly and killing myself in the long run. I would give anything to have back those days, and now I have. Don’t be in a hurry to develop your skills, it’s worth the wait.
Before I continue, I just have to say, I am not one of the experts you are stealing your money from with your bad attitude.
Here is why…
If you truly enjoy poker, poker is a game of mathematics. You can’t win and if you can’t win, you can’t lose. It is simple to calculate the odds, and you have to be patient. If you think you can be impatient, you will be betting and losing, really fast. Poker is the exact opposite of arena punting. You want to adept to the game, which requires patience.
Don’t call or answer your opponent if you don’t have a valid hand. When you’re punting, the longer you can hold your nerve, the better. Your odds of holding your nerve are a lot better when you don’t know your opponent as well as you know your own hand.
Don’t play multiple hands at once. The more you have in poker, the less you have to pay attention to each hand. You should play quick pick and be able to tell the hands of your opponents as soon as they are dealt. Don’t play three hands at once; play two at a time. Keep in mind; you can’t do beat the dealer or the other players. If you’re a multi-table player, you should know that you could be in one big pot, in a three way pot, or in a six way pot. Know your limits!
If you’re in a big pot, fold quickly. Don’t hesitate to fold; the longer you stay in the hand, the higher the risk.
As far as betting strategies go, any competent QQdewa player can determine the pot odds and he can calculate the cost of calls to stay in the hand when he has the nuts. The second part is purely up to you and your poker calculator. I won’t advise you to chase some grand because it will probably lead to you losing more money.
Know your betting options. Bets can be very different depending on the pot odds. If you’re in an early position, you can call practically any sized bet. If you’re in late position, and the flop gives you a lot of improvement, then you can call some big bets, but you should make sure that you know your risk in each situation.
This is about all I’m saying, as far as strategy is concerned, its really up to you. The more you know about poker, the less out of touch you are, with the perfect versus perfect knowledge of a hand do the choosing in your mind. This probably sounds like pure poker 101, but it’s the first thing I would add to your poker strategy any day.
