Poker coaching a money making scam?
Might just be me, but sometimes I sit and read articles on strategy, look at hand analysis, etc, etc
I'll try someones strategy, I'll change the way I play, etc, etc
To me, you can either play poker or u can't. The only way to understand poker is to play...end of.
It seems to me that when people talk about poker there is so many contradictions it is untrue.
In my opinion, learn how to play poker, understand the maths of it all, play the way you feel you should play...there is no one secret to playing poker.
I was speaking recently online to a famous poker player (I won't say who, but anyway) He said that the only real way to make it in poker is by a big hit in a MTT.
He also said that people forget that even maths in poker will not work in a normals persons lifetime - too many "Ifs and buts"
Example he gave me, but this might not be exact.
"The numbers do stack up. However, it is WHEN they stack up. That is the main LUCK of poker. For example, say that you are heads up and all in with another player and you both have a 50/50 chance. If the 50/ 50 you win happens to be in a home game for a pot of $5 and his 50/ 50 win is on the bubble in the WSOP
, that is luck"
I must admit, I'm with him on this one - this is how luck plays a big part in poker.
So, in summary, I would never pay to be coached to play poker. Play your own game, learn your own "strategy" and have fun
