This is a discussion on What is the major weakness, that prevent the development of your poker skill within the online poker forums, in the General Poker section; Personally I have many weaknesses, but last time I noticed that the worst enemy for my poker life is the game World of Tanks. When
My biggest problem is getting irritated and not reevaluating each time the cards come.. AK suited.. hit nothing on the flop.. and continually staying in throwing good chips after bad. Say Q 10 5 hits.. somebody bets.. another raises.. and I'm chasing that gut shot.. By the end I'm out 1/3 of my chips with an Ace high to show.
Work in progress.. Discipline.. discipline discipline.
Phil Hellmuth, "This fricking donkey stuffs $15,000 in with king-jack. I mean ... the guy can't even spell poker."
Going all in pre-flop. Always burns me (90% of the time) even with AA, AK, etc. Always much better to play aggressive, then take it down after the flop.
Sometimes all-in pre-flop is very good decision. For example when you have short stack (12-14 bb or even less) many professional players advise to push all you cheaps (depending on your cards and position).
For me is not having the proper bank-roll to be at the tables more often; therefor, I some times
can't play for a while so is hard once I get back to poker, that I'm not as sharp on my game.
And I lose my patience so I start playing junk hands when I should had muck them and wait for the proper position to make a move with the right cards.
Personally I have many weaknesses, but last time I noticed that the worst enemy for my poker life is the game World of Tanks. When I`m playing WOT I loose the interest for poker
What about you, guys?
Mine would be bankroll management and discipline with my bankroll. I'll get on a heater and work my way up from say $5-10 to $30 & start taking chances in some $3-5 games when really it's a big chuck of my bankroll.
I honestly miss Pokerstars so much. I know little off topic, but they just had the best tourneys and structures, overlays more players and options.
Acr is pretty limited on their tourney selections & doesn't hve a really big player field.
Most of the times I play freerolls and I get bored in some of those and I punt without obvious reason. I try to search for studying material from decent sites and forums like CC but some strategies are not applicable to the smallest stakes.
On the other hand whenever I choose to play a serious MTT I can feel again the thrill and the adrenaline of this very exciting card game.I wish I had the bankroll to play something like $22+ where the game is totally different.
Lately I elect to play whenever I am in the mood in order to be fully focused!
And I have a weakness when I lose start to open more tables more and can not wait for the card to want aces and go all-in, but it is a mistake if one bad turns and at five tables from where you can win, swear yourself for it but there is no again start and so One table kind of pretty good turns out
My main problem is that i do not spend enough time playing and reading to improve my skills. When i play i try to play well and not just gamble but i simply do not play enough. For me poker is a hobby so i have to work and i also have other hobbies which require free time and money.
I feel like I am learning and growing a little each day, but that is probably normal in beginning. I think I just need more experience and time which is probably my biggest weakness, but I am enjoying the process so far.
Frustration and boredom are two things that I have to overcome for my game. I get too anxious if I go long periods without playing a hand. Iím finding the best way for me to handle it is to try to keep 4-6 tables going at once.
TILT! and greed, this is my major problems, sometimes I am greedy, and this make me lost all of my games, than I just TILT, and cant think clearly
And, the second one is that *sometimes* may get bored on the games, that make me just go on a idiot all in....
The more fishes are at your tables, the more profit you will have
My weakness is fish getting lucky, they play all shit and when I fight them, they have aces, or get a flush with 4 cards on the board in case I bet them with 2 high pairs. So it resumes my biggest weakness is to think, there's a solution to this game....
