I know quite a few players who deposit, lose it ,
then deposit again, lose it, etc.
some are friends and friends of friends etc.
I try to explain to them to study the game, practcice BRM etc.
mostly they say " I already know that , I know how to play"
so most of them think they are 'good' and they blame bad luck.
If I mention 'pot odds
' or 'fold equity' or 'set mining' etc.
they get a glazed look in there eyes and they obviously have no clue what I'm talking about. Most of them are just playing for excitement.
Most of the people who play poker never actually bother to study it beyond the basics and they think that winning with a bluff makes them a good player.
So I can quite believe 95% are losers.
but these are only the people who I come into contact with.
How many people do you know in your daily life or local area
who play poker and make an effort to study it ?
How many people do you know who just play it ?
