Do You Want to Discover the Three Hidden Secrets of the Poker Playing Professional?
What's the difference between an amateur and a professional when it comes to poker playing? Professionals consistently win. Do you want to win like a pro? Professional poker players are professionals for a good reason - their professionals. They weren't always that way. They learnt from poker players that were more advanced and discovered hidden traits that make them the best. Here are three hidden traits I have discovered that separates amateurs and professionals. These three traits will dramatically increase your earnings. Lets get to it and learn them.
Do you read minds?
Hidden secret number one: Professional poker players know how to read players. The better you are at reading the more you will understand how to play against them. I'm not talking about behavioral twitches, which is not available for you online. But you need to consider their raising, folding, re-raising, and other habits on the table. Do they fold early on? Do they fold when you bet big all of the time. Were they bluffing from the flop, but got lucky on the river or turn? You need to be aware of their betting habits, and professionals know how to do this. Practice online or with friends on your poker night. Beware though: practicing online to learn this skill will require real money, because people do not react the same way with "play money". Most people do react the same way with real money, practice and pick this skill up. This will save you a lot of money in losses, and take your poker revenues sky high.
Don't flood the market
Hidden secret number two: Professional poker players don't bet on every hand. Poker players that have constant success take their time and don't flood bets in. They are confident in their skills to read players that they don't have to bet on every "possible" hand they could get. They usually bet on hands like pocket aces, or high suited cards. Don't make the mistake that I use to make and bet because I had royalty. I usually would bet on a Q,9 or a J,8 I have found that cards like this, don't pay off. It is rare that they will pay off however. When you show others that you're not betting on any old thing that comes through, your bets will have more weight and you'll be considered more conservative. So when you do bet, and bluff, you will be taking more seriously. Learning this secret has enabled my poker wins to jump, even when some people don't bet against me. Remember the price of something goes up if its rare, if you bet rarely, it will be weighted more.
Just a little bit
Hidden secret number three: Professional poker players rarely rush in to a hand. How often do you see pro's betting within a 2-minute time frame on ESPN? There's a reason for this. It confuses the opposing player. They are thinking, "Does he have a good hand?" "Why is he taking so long?" "What is he considering?" This technique only helps your chances. To through a spanner in the works, professionals sometimes bet a hand quickly to throw people off. It is gold! Master it and you can really make your poker personality known. There are a lot more poker secrets for you to discover. They are hidden from view, but are valuable enough to make you serious money.
