the player we all want to be or become, the shark. Undoubtedly the best player of all and therefore the most difficult to beat. It comes into play with a very select range of hands playing with strength and decision, avoiding too many players in the hand because he knows that he loses a good part of his chances when this happens, especially when his hand is winning so far but easily surmountable in subsequent rounds. As we can see, he raises bets to protect his play and it is difficult to discover when he goes bluffing. Play with skill and intelligence using all techniques, observation, reading hands, position, bluff, semifarol, raise, chec-raise, reraise, etc. The best option is to check-call when we perceive that he wants to throw us out of hand with his bets or retire if there is no "pot odds" to move forward.

I think one of the strongest skills the, "Sharks" possess is their ability to read cards. A lot of their success comes from their ability to read hands. This is how they know when to get out, when to apply maximum pressure, when to bluff, etc. etc. etc. I am currently working on my hand reading. After that, I am going to study the psychology of poker.
