Playing out of Position and My Poker Philosophy
I know that I can play good position poker and play position strong in poker, but something I need to improve on is playing well out of position. If I can do that, then everyone else better watch out. Many leaks in my poker game
I have fix will be fixed eventually but there will be some growing pains (it will be tough and frustrating) as it'll probably take 8-10 years in order for me to elevate my poker game to be where I want it to be. For all poker players who want to improve, if you don't think there is gonna be some growing pains on your road to improving your poker skills, there gonna be pain. A lot of pain involved. It's all part of the process.
To change subject, nothing is worse in poker than playing better than your opponents and forcing them to make big mistakes. However, the crappy thing is when they get their money in bad and they suck out on you somehow. On the other hand, long-term variance dictates that those who constantly need to get it in bad to win is a losing player in the long run. So while short-term variance may not necessarily be in your favor, it's not the end of the world. Just know that there is no need to sulk and pout over a bad beat. After all, a bad beat by its very simple definition is when you lose a hand after getting your money in as the clear favorite. There's no need to complain and rant in the chat box about how your opponents sucked out on you, because all you have to tell yourself is that you got it in good which is what you want long-term. Long-term success is achieved by forgetting and putting behind your short-term misfortunes. One of the most important things I've learned playing poker is that it's more important to be process-oriented rather than results-oriented. As long as you go through the right process to give yourself the best chance to succeed long-term, you will succeed eventually. Even when things aren't going your way, you still have to believe that your fortunes. All you can do is make what are the long-term correct decisions in the long run and that's it. Everything else is beyond the boundaries of your control. Good players define a successful session as one where they make good long-term plays. They aren't result-oriented but they are process-oriented. That's how I approach each session. will improve. It's all about positive thinking. The journey is just as important as the destination.
