Excellent thread, Rob
Looking at your weaknesses as a poker player is one of the hardest things to do, especially for players with an ego or for those who think they are poker's next big thing
Being aware of your weaknesses and looking to improve on them is a must for any player looking to move to the next level. Even the worlds greatest players look at weaknesses in their games, and strive to improve them in order to be the best player they can be
I know MTT's and HU play is where my strengh lies. I have improved so much since I first started playing. I remember when I first joined Cardchat early last year, when the forum was just starting and had only a small number of members, that my poker game
was only average and as a new player I had lots to learn.
After only a few months of playing I had won a massive tournament but I am more content with my game now, and yet I havent won a tournament with that number of entrants since. But I know my game has improved since then
Looking at my weaknesses, I strive to pick up on them all the time. Being the biggest critit of your own game is a massive asset, believe me.
Getting back on track after a beat used to be a massive weakness of mine, yet I know that is something I have improved on recently and something I know I need to keep improving on to improve as a player
Also, you must be confident as a player. Dont be afraid. I have seen these weak players with not that many holes in their game who just have no confidence. having confidence when playing is a must for any player IMHO
