Improving the game

Patience and poker

The main quality for success in poker is patience. Excessive emotions harm the player, because Texas Hold'em is more of a long-distance race and it is unacceptable to waste your passion in the first minutes of the game.

Lack of patience leads to mistakes

Let's take a look at typical situations that require a lot of patience from the player.

  • A player who has suffered a bad pit does not need to tilt. You need to protect yourself from emotions, rash moves and bluffs.
  • Don't be fooled by a good starting hand. The situation can change at any time, and this will be reflected in the face and actions of the player.
  • If a player thinks he has a great starting hand (eg pocket pair) and, being impatient, goes all-in, then the odds of his winning are roughly 50%.
  • At the beginning of the game, be patient and determine the style of other players.
  • It is unacceptable to lose composure if the game has dragged on for a long time.

How can I be patient?

In order to remain patient and increase your chance of winning, you must adhere to the following rules:

  • Play the best starting hand.
  • Give the enemy the opportunity to be the first to show their style.
  • Don't play a hand after a bad deal.
