Wow – you’ve seen it on TV. Luxury, luxury, CASH!!! And you may have noticed that one of the main skills in any game of poker is observation. In live play there are relatively few distractions and you can see your opponent’s reactions and body language.
Playing online is a very different ball game. There’s the TV, the family, the dog, the phone, it even seems like the whole world wants your attention. This is not good for your game and ultimately your poker income. Oops, you just folded that AA when you wanted to raise it. Damn now you are called an all-in bet with trash and you mean to fold. Don’t laugh, I’ve done both of these and they cost a few bucks!!
So now you’re in the Den, calm down and you can finally concentrate. Ah, let’s reply to these emails, do a search for new and awesome BBQ for the best bonus offers. Hey what do you mean I’m sitting?? Multi-tasking modern day buzz words. And a total killer for your poker profits Daftar Ion Club .
It’s a pretty tough game to beat when you’re fully concentrated, on top of your game and playing the best you can. So why hinder yourself by not giving him the attention he deserves. And have fun while doing it. Chat and Smack Talk while playing, you can send players obliquely! But don’t forget to concentrate, it takes a lot of focus and discipline, especially when the game is slow and you don’t get any cards. Don’t be tempted to do anything – you’ll lose a lot more money faster than that!
The best way to divide your attention is to play 2 or even 3 tables at once. This guarantees that you can’t focus on a particular table. If you have to do this, (and I am guilty of course!!), play a tournament and a ring game, or 2 tournaments. Try and avoid playing some ring games, it is not profitable in the long run unless you are the Howard Leaderer of Phil Ivey.
Choose a card room and table that suits how you play. At the lower end which is easier said than done, but by OBSERVING what happens you will get a ‘feel’ for the table after a few hands and for little or no cost, depending on whether you put up and go through the blinds or not. If it doesn’t suit you, get up and find another table. It will be much cheaper in the long run than trying to force your table. Know when to cut and run and when to stay.
As the game progresses, you will see players leave and join. Pay extra attention here because the fish you were milking has gone and an aggressive, aggressive player is now in his place. This can affect the tone of the entire table and make it unprofitable to continue.
Play fast, aggressive, and reasonable and your bank roll will grow over time – and maybe see you at the WSOP!! – I’m All-in
