Poker is enjoying a growing preference during Diwali celebrations across the country, and with good reason! The skill-based game has intrigued many to come ‘try their luck’ at the felts and find out what all the fuss is about. Get-togethers during the festival are slowly seeing Rummy games being replaced by it, and for us poker enthusiasts, well, that’s great news!
PokerBaazi.com’s ‘Diwali Cash League’ kicked off on the 16th of October and is a great opportunity to enjoy some poker at the cash tables while standing a chance to win a trip to Australia! That’s right – the top two winners of the Diwali Cash League win a 7-night package (flights + stay) to Melbourne, during the 2018 Aussie Millions early next year. The festival also features iPhone Xs, gold coins, tournament tickets, and tons of cash prizes all up for grabs until the 5th of November.
Divided into 2 categories (Hi and Lo), the League will feature a Leaderboard that rewards players with points based on the number of hands played (https://www.pokerbaazi.com/promotions/diwali-cash-league) and stack challenges completed (https://www.pokerbaazi.com/promotions/stack-challenge). Depending on the stake levels chosen, prizes and points will vary.
The PokerBaazi.com Diwali Cash League is guaranteed to add to the festivities of the season, and with the race now underway, it’s time to grab your seats at the tables and start clocking those hands! (Oh, and it wouldn’t be a bad idea to find out what’s nice to see in Melbourne too!) Two weeks of high-value cash games gift wrapped with loads of goodies, this one’s most definitely going to a be a ‘Happy Diwali’.

Playing online poker games either online or live give major lessons for life. Learning how to play good poker gives you a true multimedia learning experience that can be applied in life as well. Unfortunately, in poker and in life, we don't get the option to choose the cards that are dealt, we simply have to play with the ones with the best of our ability. The below mentioned are some of the points that one can implement in our daily life as well.
Try not to blow your bankroll on stupid things. Bankroll management plays an important role in poker. In the event that you don't have cash then you can't play.
The initial step to bankroll management is that you have to monitor your cash. Try not to play poker games for more than you can bear to lose. Squandering the cash on silly things will only diminish your bankroll. Give your cash a chance to make more money.
One more tip is not to carry on with a way of life that you can't bear the cost of either. You have to note everyday costs. Put some portion of that into an investment account that you cannot touch.
Search for Your Poker Leaks
Poker games for a change teach you to look for leaks which could affect your own game. They can particularly be negative behavior patterns and which are gaps that can make the vessel sink extra time. Settling the holes expects you to dissect your own particular course of action. That is extraordinary, however how to apply this to our own lives? Whatever circumstance you're endeavoring to enhance in your life, search for leaks. That could help you excel in the game and in life.
Emotional, Mental, and Financial Discipline
A standout amongst essential thoughts to be a poker player winner is to hold your feelings and funds under wraps. Indeed, even the best poker players have lost fortunes by letting either or both run wild. The standards are straightforward: don't play when disappointed, and don't play outside your limits. However, poker gives motivation to you: stay disciplined, or lose your money.
In life, similarly as in poker, sharpened emotional control enables you to take things slowly. To keep your serenity while others explode with rage. A sharp mental personality slices through the slack, while financial discipline keeps you grounded for life. Emotional reactions are regularly pointless and unfavorable in any basic decision processes. Abstain from settling on essential choices when you feel your emotions are out of control. Stride back, inhale and rethink.
Try not to cut off your brain to different methods for considering or other potential answers for a problem. Most of the time, in poker and in life, the appropriate response will be obvious and straightforward, however, in different circumstances, it won't. There isn't generally a set in stone approach to playing a hand of poker, and similar remains constant in your regular day to day existence, once in a while you'll see that there is more than one right answer, and on uncommon events there can frequently be no smart responses and you need to pick between the lesser of two disasters.
