Here are 5 tips that you must understand to make a consistent profit from poker. Solid poker is a proven winning poker strategy, and these 5 tips will increase your earnings if used correctly.
Be robotic. For years now actions caused subconsciously by the human brain have been analysed to assess inner thoughts. From detective work to poker, even the slightest movement of the eye, the rashness of a decision or recurring patterns can give analysts conclusions of what the inner psyche is thinking. Even online, where players cannot actually see you, there are several ‘tells’ that can be observed, such as bet patterns, how quickly you bet, what you type into the chat box and whether you show your folded cards or not. To be a truly solid poker play, all your actions must be calculated.
Self confidence. To increase your profits from IDN Poker you must be confident in your decision-making abilities. If you have played an opponent several times, and he plays relatively weak hands, and you connect on the flop you must be confident in your bet. If you lack self-confidence at the poker table, players will steal pots off you, making your long-term profits take a turn for the worst.
Play Tight/Aggressive. This isn’t just the ‘flavour of the month’, this is a proven winning strategy. Select the hands that you get involved with carefully, and once you’re involved in a hand, play aggressively to give yourself the maximum chance of wining the pot.
Don’t worry about your buy in. Once you have bought into a tournament, or cash table, you must regard that cash as gone. You can’t play timidly because you’re scared of losing it, you must play to the best of your ability, whether that be risking your buy in with an all in move, or folding aces because you believe you are beaten
Don’t show Emotion. Emotions should be left at home when playing poker (unless you’re playing at home, in which case leave them outside!). Poker, being a game of averages, has a tendency to punish solid players with bad beats from time to time. You must hold your head up high, move on, and continue to play your solid poker. If you have full confidence in the solid poker play style, then it makes it much easier to separate your emotional thoughts from your calculated decisions.
