Same Mistakes Plague Poker Veterans and Rookies
It is amazing that a game known to “take a lifetime to master”
continues to have the same mistakes made by its players regardless
on if they are experienced or new to the game of poker. Excessive
bluffing, overplaying bad hands, lack of respect for the odds, and
going on tilt to chase bad beats remain the biggest obstacles to
success in online poker to this very day.
Bluffing is becoming such a farce that it has become a caricature
of itself more than an effective strategy to be carefully hand selected
over time. It is harder to bluff online that it is at a traditional
brick and mortar in person table game and yet most online poker
players seem to have the belief that it will work for them and lead
to “stealing money” and profits. Smart players have
become accustomed to everyone bluffing nowadays and are no longer
fazed by it as they continue to respect the odds.
Tilt is just as bad of a phenomenon as there are a huge amount
of online poker players that lack the discipline of being able to
accept a bad beat. If you want to get beat over and over again by
chasing and reliving the same bad beat by all means be our guest
but don’t cry about it afterwards. The best poker players
grow up and realize the risks that they take when they enter the
online poker tables and have lived to fight another day with bankrolls
not blown on tilt.
