Poker; Mistakes and how to fix them
One of the most obvious things that beginners to poker do, is they play hands that have no chance of ever winning. You don't have to be a pro to know that if all you have is a high card of 5 to know that your in trouble Many beginners will be drawn in by the rush of gambling and play hands just for the thrill of playing. I would recommend that you play for that thrill but play smart.
Other beginners will play in games that are over there spending limit. I always say that you have to check that limit. You dont want to be left there betting money you dont have, or all of your money in one play and then lose it all. The thing about online poker is that its so easy to play because its exciting but you don't see your actual money, all you see is numbers. This makes poker online seem like a crazy game.
Many Poker players will get very emotionally involved. This is hazardous to your bank account. Anger sometimes comes from helplessness. When you are playing online and losing every game and your money along with it you have no way of getting it back, there is no person that sees you losing this money. It is just you and your screen. In many cases to try and receive there money back, many players will just keep playing until they are in debt.
Many beginners who play poker will try crazy things like walk into a casino backwards and throwing salt and rabbits feet for luck. Although, like in all gambling, there is a large portion of luck in poker. If you are a good player this will effect your winnings, but if you really don't know how to play you will never win, good luck or not. A good player will take the worst cards with the worst luck and turn it into the best hand in history
Imitation is the most sincere form of flattery. In poker it is the biggest mistake you can make. I have heard of people who have watched some pros playing poker on T.V. who where winning and just copied them at a casino That is not a good idea because, on T.V. the pros play in tournaments. These are much different situations then the ones in the casino's. In some cases the players they imitate are not actually good they actually just had a good day.
