Cut The Rapid Growth of Competition!
Entering the world of Poker can become a bit overwhelming as you receive the fruits of your toil immediately after you showcase your talent on the felts. While Poker has the ability to put you on cloud nine, it can surely instigate a bitter start to your Poker journey. With the Poker industry growing rapidly, there is an increase in the level of competition. So, in order to cut your competition, the smartest move is to study the most common mistakes committed by newbies. Let’s dive in to discuss some of the key pointers to keep in mind.
Monitor your frequency of bluffing: Bluffing is an art which requires skills, it does not depend on whether you are a regular or a new player. However, the timing of your bluff should be chosen very carefully. Look for players who might decide to fall back against your bluff and if you already have this talent, never try to misuse it.
Strike a perfect balance between listening & talking: If you find yourself in a tricky position and you’re nervous, try to strike a conversation to make yourself comfortable. While doing that, you could also take out information from your opponents.
If you think you are ahead in the game, always resist yourself from showing your cards or what was your strategy behind playing a particular hand?
Never try to play as much as you can: Being a new player, you might want to play as much as you can to sharpen your poker skills but this is exactly what you have to avoid. Understand the concept of a ‘premium hand’ early on in your career as this will help you build your game. Observe and learn how to play weaker starting hands. It’s always better to learn from the mistakes of others.
Bet-sizing: The underlying fundamental is to maximise your bets if you have a stronger hand and minimise in order to put a check on the amount you could lose. Although this is another skill which is developed with experience but being alert always helps.
Become emotionally strong: Tilting on the felts has been one of the most common phenomenon, but we all know that this beast can be tamed. However, achieving this goal too needs experience. If you are a newbie and you manage to do this, then you have checked off a major part of your learning goals.
We wish you all the best. May you fulfil all your poker endeavours.
