Playing alot of online tourneys, no tables. YouTube alot of pro highlights. 24/7 poker streams of tourneys on twitch. Read books (my fav/ learned the most from The mathematics of piker( On table it's hard, find a way that suits you for emotions. I keep my head down alot and have a dead face. But still chat some.

Keep urself to a strategy that works for you, I'm still inconsistent on tables and still learning, but online I find myself more comfortable

it all comes down to picking the right table (the one with trash players)
2019-05-13 02:40
might be, i'm not sure if i know how the stock market really works tho...but in both cases u can become a pro and makes lots of money if you know what youre doing, especially because u earn the money of those who doesn't know...see, some old friends always invite me to play some casual poker with them and i'm able to win it all like 7 out of 10 times. So how much luck i need to have this rate? well the thing is i play poker for 15 years and for some times was my primary source of income, but to them is just a fun hobby... if u go for stock market treating it as a fun hobby the sharks will get your money easily too

Luck is small in poker. Yes the odds need to be in your favour but u can calculate most hands and you will learn to read
2019-05-13 02:37
If you play tourneys luck is massive, I know really good players who had losing years playing tourneys because the variance is huge. If you play cash you can grind a steady profit, but there are more good players in cash so you have to table select carefully.

I'm assuming you're a beginner or amateur, so a few tips: In online poker, most important thing to learn first is how to manage your bankroll, learn the stakes and the limits you can play. After that there are several basic things to learn like position, pot odds and hand-range. Keeping simple, a gold tip is to avoid the flash plays at all costs, hero calls and bluffs just gonna break you. Then when u got the basics it will be to great use if u learn how to use a HUD software like pokertracker or holdem manager 2. Tracking your history as well as your opponents tendencies can give u huge boost in online poker. Peace

Study strategy Practice good bankroll management Game select (don't only play vs people who are as good as/better than you) Don't be results oriented Don't get tilted Poker is extremely competitive. You will need to be on the right side of variance (get lucky) if you want to get ahead, you'll probably burn through a whole bunch of buy-ins before you get a big score. Honestly if someone asked me if I think they should be a pro poker player I would say not to unless you are a super genius or just extremely driven and disciplined. I used to grind mid-stakes tourneys and after turning a mediocre profit for 2 years I quit. Going on a big downswing is super depressing and will wreck your motivation unless you are an emotionless robot. Nowadays I just play sunday tourneys occasionally for fun.

+1 to this. Field nowdays is just so full of regular good players, it makes supercompetitve. Also too much discipline and mental streght needed, downswings are like the worst thing ever. can't describe the feel of getting cracked non-stop for weeks and months. It's super tough to be a pro or make a living out of poker. I was able to make a few bucks in the 2000's, but that fish pool is long gone.

Yeah man, if I could take what I know about poker now and go in a time machine back to 2003 I would be so loaded, I didn't start playing till 2009 and the golden days of online poker truly died in 2011 when it got shut down in the US. Nowadays you have to go up against the Russian GTO bots.
