How to get good confidence and trust in poker?
Much like a small child trusts its mother completely.
Is such a close connection with poker possible?
Some strange comparison of the trust of a child with a mother. Why should you trust poker like your own mother??? This is a strange approach to the game. Maybe I didn't quite understand you, please explain in more detail what you mean?

It's difficult to gain confidence when there is so much variance since what you win today, you can lose tomorrow. Nevertheless, the best thing you can do is play each hand to the best of your ability, and when you have doubts about a play, you can check it later with a probability calculator.

Familiarity will bring comfort and trust. The more you play and experience the more you will get this. Just keep playing and you will become accustomed to poker. It should only take a few months.

Absolutely, building confidence and trust in poker is like developing any skill—it takes time and effort. Start by enjoying the game, both its wins and losses, as each hand is a learning opportunity.
1. Learn the Basics:
  • Take your time understanding the rules and basic strategies. A solid foundation will boost your confidence.
2. Practice Makes Perfect:
  • Play as often as you can, whether with friends or online. The more hands you play, the more comfortable you'll become.
3. Reflect on Your Play:
  • Don't be afraid to review your games. Learn from mistakes and celebrate smart plays. It's all part of the process.
4. Don't Let Emotions Take Over:
  • Stay calm and collected. Emotional control is a big part of poker. If you're feeling overwhelmed, take a break.
5. Connect with Others:
  • Share experiences with fellow players. Joining a poker community or discussing hands with friends can provide valuable insights.
6. Celebrate Small Wins:
  • Set achievable goals, and when you reach them, celebrate. It's the small victories that build confidence over time.
7. Be Patient:
  • Trust the process. Improving at poker is a journey. Don't rush it; enjoy every step of the way.
8. Learn from Setbacks:
  • Losses happen, but each one is a chance to learn. Instead of dwelling on the negative, focus on what you can do better next time.
9. Have Fun:
  • Remember why you started playing in the first place—because it's fun! Enjoy the game, and the confidence will follow.
10. Trust Your Instincts:
  • As you gain experience, trust your instincts. Your knowledge and intuition will guide you in making better decisions.
Poker is not just about the money; it's about the skill, strategy, and the thrill of the game. Enjoy the process, keep learning, and your confidence in poker will grow naturally.

Poker is a game of chance. gambling involves financial risks by default. But everything in our life is somehow related to risk. Even when you are sleeping at home, safe, there is a risk that something could happen, an earthquake, or a natural disaster, a fire, or a neighbor who decided to become a maniac.
As for poker, by following a few simple rules, you can at least partially protect yourself and minimize possible risks. First of all, play poker on reliable sites, those that have been tested by time, experience and have positive feedback from players. Play only with money that is not important to you, that is, money that you can afford to spend. Do not keep large, significant amounts for you on your account. Use reliable payment systems.

The path to success lies through failure. Many players often encounter psychological problems when playing poker. One of these problems is confidence in your own technical skills and doubts that you are really at the proper level of gaming.Almost all successful people say that on the way to their biggest and loudest achievements there were many failures. Their initiatives were smashed to smithereens, sometimes this happened publicly, but these people did not give up. They understood that in order to achieve their goal they would have to go through all these obstacles and obstacles.

Of course, you will gain confidence in poker over time when you have enough money and you won't worry about losing money in poker, but there will definitely be no intimacy and trust like a mother in poker and you won't be able to trust poker, you'll just play more confidently and that's it

I think the most important thing is to believe in yourself and your good actions, it's the best thing that comes to my mind.

At some point, when the last penny is lost, confidence will be lost.
try not to bring it to that point (y)

Training. Studying tactics...it will benefit your results and can give you a self esteem boost.

A good start for you would be to stop playing Out of position and stop limbing all the time xD

I think that security in poker comes as you play and gain more experience.

As you play, you play and learn more and more, and with that comes confidence and security.

You can not trust in poker at all. Like you never have to trust in a game of luck.

So, you want to trust a card game like people trust their mother?
...... well, it's all your right and your choice, but I'm more than sure that this attitude towards gambling will lead you to the fact that you will live in a cardboard box somewhere under a bridge.

Assuming he means trust in his game. It take time and lots of it to get there. Study and learn the game. Learning from you errors and you correct moves is vital. Question everything you do and are told. Just because you are winning in a certain way does not mean you're doing the right play and will win forever. I have found over time some things i assumed were right were horrible wrong. Remember you always need to learn and work on the game.

You have to learn a lot. ..
Course you need luck at times but you can compensate the need for luck with constant stable play

And the question wasn't if he trusts the game itself but HIS game
