Are There Remedies In Poker?

As mentioned in Part I, hand selection mistakes are preventable, I have explained a number of similar causes of such mistakes. If you find you are used to such misplays and are stimulated to reduce them from your game, you may gain something from ascertaining which of the causes I have stated is appropriate to your case. Those that are appropriate will determine certain remedies.

Cause 1 is difficult to deal with. In a short period your best assurance against overrating your ability is good education in poker theory to have a feeling of much you actually know. This is combined with a sound knowledge of the nature of the variations which comes in a normal game. Experience and study can help these. However, in the long run, your results will figure how well you have played. If you believe that you have played well, though your results have not been good, you should take into account that you may not be as skilled as you think you are.

In addition, if you still continue to believe an excellent player in spite of poor results, it may reflect an emotion problem as far as your self-esteem is concerned. Further it is problem which would affect your poker results. If you do not accept to be a great player, you are possibly ignoring the study and analysis of the game that you want so as to improve. Excluding some psychological calculations, I recommend that your best bet for solving such a problem may involve psychotherapy.

Although entering psychotherapy sound like a measure, if you are serious about the poker game and want to gain large amount of money at the game, you will find doing it mathematically that is undoubtedly cost effective. It may save your poker career. (Refer to the essay "A Poker Player in Therapy.") You should decide what you are supposed to do to improve your play. (You may consider the long run benefits you may gain from a well observed psychotherapy.)

The need to maintain self-esteem tends to be stronger than the motivation to tackle oneself truthfully. Hence, the players who overrate their skill and ability do not realize this tendency in themselves. They will possibly not look for help until their internal problems create intense frustration in other areas of their lives.

Cause 2, going on tilt, can be solved without indulging in psychotherapy. Sharpening your knowledge to the game so that you develop the "professional attitude" may help you a lot. (Refer to the essay on the topic of tilt.) For few online gambling players, going on tilt may indicate to the deeper psychological problems. Further, professional concept is indicated.

Cause 3, 4, 5 are referred through the study of poker. It includes reading, consulting with the experts, and evaluating problems and strategies. Currently, study particularly the play poker of the first two cards, especially why certain hands are pointed in certain situations while others are not, and why hands are played the way they are

The reason 3, the illusion that any two cards can win, requires the particular development of an understanding of the benefits of one starting hand over another in a particular situation. If you always protect your blind, for example, you need a good understanding of the nature of the benefits a hand like

Against a hand like

in a heads-up situation.

Cause 6, gives a situation where there are no problem to be solved. If a player plays well, but for some reason does not play well, that is his privilege, I only wish that the best players in the game where I play should have such type of player more often.

It is sarcastic that the area of hold'em in which the correct decision is somewhat simple is also common source of mistakes. I expect that the points explained here have clarified the cost and causes of these errors, while providing some ideas on how to minimize them from your play slots.
