Spot the fish to spot the bluff

Everyone admires a great poker player – it’s either for their skill, class and mind games, or the way they can maintain their cool even amongst a heat. Here’s what we noticed about our top poker players.

 

Work Your Game

The first step into being a professional poker player is to actually be a 'professional'.

And there's no easy way to do that.

You need put it in the effort. Read every poker book you can get your hands on. In fact, read them over and over again.

But don't just leave it to the books. Get a practical experience. Face your fears and intimidate players.

 

The Right Mix

No, we're not talking about drinks. Although they might come in handy.

A great poker player has to have the right balance- of business and game, cash management and hand selection.

Change Your Game

Unlike other games, poker doesn't encourage a player to find a steady rhythm. After a while even professional players, start displaying a pattern. Change your play every once in a while to keep your competitors on their toes.

 

Spot the ‘fish’

In poker, the fish is always the weaker player. If you can't identify the 'fish' on the table, probably it's you. Before you sit on a table try and identify the 'fish'. It will only improve your chances of winning.

 

Know It All

Most poker players stick to Texas Hold-em poker. But this limits their playing style and game sense. Wouldn't it be better if you knew how to be profitable in other variants - like Omaha, or 7 Card Stud etc.?
