How do you become winners?
Often wonder why some players win with more continuity than others. Fortune? FOSE talent? In fact there are various reasons that lead those few to become real phenomena of online poker.
Certainly a player to have a high probability of success, should have three important characteristics: intelligence, discipline and confidence. If you miss even one of these unique attributes, it will be difficult to find the right way to get great satisfaction that endure over time. Intelligence is perhaps the key feature for a poker player, the basis on which to develop any other skill.
Without the mental flexibility fundamentals of poker, mathematical and logical conclusions, the adaptations based on the type of opponent can not be understood and applied not to mention advanced strategies that require more in-depth considerations. The intelligence poker, however, is not just ‘be smart’ in the eyes of someone or have the culture of the game, a successful player must be able to think critically, absorb and apply the information on the time and have some aptitude for mathematics and logic.
The second key characteristic to win with continuity is what brings so many brilliant minds to fail in poker discipline. Any professional will tell you that discipline is essential and many winning players encounter every day with the lack of clear objectives, with the lack of motivation, the tendency to tilt. A player should, first, to compare the technical discipline at the same level of the game and approach it with the same desire to grow when you read a book of technique.
Discipline means to play for as long as possible in the correct way, knowing how to fold certain starting hands preflop, be careful in your hands post-flop play, remain calm after a series of bad beats, select their games and especially considering online poker as a job, devoting countless hours to this game for several days during the week.
Third aspect, but no less important, is trust. It is not about self-esteem or how to relate to others, here are talking about how they feel by acting in a certain way at the table, what the Americans would call ‘confidence’. Poker is not a game for the timid and a player can not be successful for long if he can not trust its readings or go to the bottom of a decision to bluff for valid reasons.
One of the most important concepts is selective aggression that requires not only the courage of actions, but also determine what situations need to play aggressive. A player timid longer withdraw easily give up too many dishes, too many times ultimately leave money on the table.
Find players who possess all three characteristics is rare, this is perhaps the reason why there are so few players to long-term success in this particular field.
