Why Are You Still Playing NL Holdem!?
Like most of you I started out playing holdem and I guess it would be the most exciting form of poker.
But have you ever though to yourself "why do I play"?? Is it for the money? Are you interesting making extra cash every day?
If so..why the hell are you playing holdem!
Unless you have dreams of winning the WSOP
and being a poker celeb..there's no need to play NL Holdem as your main game..if you keep losing/breaking even...because being decent in a limit game, you will be winning money more than you lose it...nearly every time you play!
The amount of bad beat stories we see here is crazy and there's a reason for that......holdem is a lot about luck. Whether you like it or not...it's true and a big reason why is the NO LIMIT part.
How many times have you played a cash table, built up your buyin to 5 times the amount and then lost it all in 1 hand? Stop letting it happen!
Start playing the limit/less popular games, Razz, 2-7, Limit holdem, Stud etc and you will find you will keep more of your money and lose less of it when you do get sucked out on.
Limt..unsurpisingly limits your variance and your losses.
In a limit game you have more decisions to make and if you are a good player at chosen game, you will easily do well. Nobody can easily bluff you out of a pot with a losing hand, nobody can go all in after the river when they hit their straight and make you lose you whole stack!
There is a big money to be made in the less known limit games and these will only grow in popularity in the future, so get in on them now before they turn out like holdem
Do you want to be a NL poker celeb (with all the variance stress mind you) or earn a consitent profit and having winning sessions most of the time)
Just something to think about.
