A Losers Guide to Poker

Sep 3, 2008
There are so many guides on how to play online poker that I decided and felt that it was right to create one about a losers guide to poker, if you are currently reading this you more than likely are looking to improve your overall skills. Some people think they are probably the best poker player in the world. But when it comes down to it they end up losing there hard earned money. If you think you know how to play poker think again, poker is a game of skill and ability and knowing when to be able to call a bluff. We will take a look at a few aspects from a loser's perspective.

First and foremost just because you know the poker rules, it does not make you an expert. If you go to the table with experienced poker players that have probably been playing for years, then in all probability you are going to get eaten alive!

A fact that I see quite often is when beginner poker players chuck in all there chips, when they obviously have such a weak hand. Why don't you just wait until you have a good hand to play with as you will have much more chance of coming out successful?

Another mistake that a lot of poker losers will make is, when they have lost all of there chips they just sit back and sulk. This is a major downfall, what is the point of sulking? Why not watch how your opponents are playing and get tips and ideas on what they do, so the next time round you will know how to call there bluff.

Like any game, poker is about skill and art. Do not think that for one moment that you are the greatest player, because there is always someone that is sneakier and better prepared than you. You have to be ready to understand how each poker players mind works. What you should do is have a discussion, or just general chit chat with your opponent before the game commences. This not only calms down your nerves but it gives you the ultimate chance to evaluate and get into the mind of your competitor. Remember poker is a game of probability, every time a new hand develops you will have to quickly evaluate the scenario. Keeping all of this in mind you should push yourself to the max and become a genuine winner.
