Stages of a losing online poker player
Stage One - So I can win real money
just by winning a poker hand ? I just won't bet unless I have the best hand possible, this will be easy.
Stage Two - Wow, how could he bluff me off my two pair ? With the amount he bet, he should have had a monster. I need to figure out what kinds of hands the other players play.
Stage Three - These players in the micros call anything, and chase every draw. You can't win at this level, I'm tired of winning $2 a session. I'm taking my $100 and playing $50NL, two buyins is plenty for a tight player like me.
Stage Four - I can't believe he called $20 on a gut shot and hit the miracle straight on the river. Site must be rigged, you can't win online. I'm never playing online again.
Stage Five - Repeat Stages 1 through 4
