Be Your Own Boss
Things you will learn:
- Treat playing poker like a job and don’t let yourself get distracted
Poker players are always looking for new strategies and tactics that will give them the edge in a game. But poker success often boils down to the things you don’t do:
- Don’t tune out. Most of the time when you’re playing you aren’t in a hand, so keep busy by observing the other players. Use our software’s notes feature to write down your reads on your opponents
- Don’t run distracting programs. When you play, try to only have our game software open. Close your web browser and shut down other instant messaging programs
- Don’t let other people interrupt. Sometimes people think playing poker is a pastime, like watching TV. It’s fun, but you need to concentrate when there’s a big payout looming. If you’re playing an important game, take your laptop somewhere private and close the door
Give yourself the biggest chance of winning a cash game session or big tournament by being your own boss and breathing down your own neck.
