Common mistakes in playing poker


Players often play with their own power, without taking into account the possible strength of the hands of rivals. Slightly diversifying actions postflop, you can put your opponent in a difficult position, and, therefore, give him the opportunity to allow an error.
Loss of concentration (automatism)
Playing poker on several tables at the same time, it is very easy to “slip” into automatism in making decisions with an increase in the number of hands played. Having learned to assess the situation and perform on one table in seconds, the player instantly moves on to another draw, thereby increasing the number of hands played during the session, but at the same time it is not necessary to have his own financial result. Taking a quick decision increases the risk of missing the nuances of which a successful poker game consists.
Tip: before each action, think for at least a few seconds about who you are playing with, what tactics you are going to use and why. This will help to avoid automatism in the game and will immediately affect the win.
At the considered limits, there are enough players showing recreational poker, that is, playing for fun. Often they are unpredictable for novice players (they can and remain in the hand with the second or third pair, straight, having outs on a straight or a flush). As a result, “moving” by such players is also not uncommon.
In this case, it is very important to remember that the bad beats are an integral part of the game, and that poker is a game designed for a long distance for those who set themselves the goal of earning money. Manifestations of luck or bad luck are temporary, and with a large number of hands played, the influence of these factors decreases. Stay true to your tactics, try to avoid blunders. But, if you feel that you are not able to cope with surging negative feelings, then the best solution would be a break in the game.
