Poker Players Get your mind right!
be beaten by a player with lesser skills
Just because you're holding :As: :Ah: it is not
guaranteed to hold up
3 That goes double
for :Kc::Ks:, :As::Ks: and
It also applies to any
hand, not the nuts, on the river
The river does
count. Winning on the river happens to every player just like losing there. Winning on the river does not diminish the value of the pot
The hand will be contested as long as more than one player is in the hand
You have not won until the cards are shown down - this is at the end of the hand OR everyone else folds
While you can accurately determine your opponents pockets - maybe they cannot, they may call your bet having mistaken your better packet pair and beat you on the flop with trip sixes!
9 The fact that your hand is actually better than your opponent
will not magically cause that player to automatically fold
It is not against the rules to be called or bet back at while you hold prime pockets
There is no
pre-flop hand guaranteed to win after the flop - not one!
When a player is playing poorly, constantly reminding said player of this may cause him to play well enough to bust you.
When commenting on someone's poor play, comments like "you luckbox, non-playing sob"
be considered constructive, helpful hints. When you tell someone the story of busting out, "venting" and giving "helpful hints" they don't believe you either.
Sitting in the losers lounge commenting on others play does not make you appear to be a knowledgeable or even as good as those who have not yet busted out.
original quote from "Cool Hand Luke" 1967 starring Paul Newman:
You run one time, you got yourself a set of chains. You run twice you got yourself two sets. You ain't gonna need no third set, 'cause you gonna get your mind right.
