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?
Such a connection is quite possible if your mother is the owner of a poker site. In this case, even if you once again lose all your bankroll, your mother will be able to help you and solve this misunderstanding :)

I think using things like a solver and icm tools will give you confidence.

When you know you are making a correct shove or call its a lot easier when it does not work. You wont be second guessing yourself and you will be ready to move onto the next hand.

When you start learning and making good decisions at the table you will be more comfortable playing.

You should not trust poker, you must trust your game... no matter how good you become, there will be times when you will be in a losing streak and to overcome that you must have mental strength... that is why you must trust yourself and your game.

The best way to be more confident is practicing, so, the more you play the more you learn to not make the same mistakes. Also, studying is also important to be confident in your decisions.

So don't you trust poker rooms? I think online poker is fair. :D But seriously, I think a lot of players trust poker rooms, believing in dispersion. :unsure: I trust poker rooms too, but not all of them. :ROFLMAO:

you have to trust your game, if you have a well-studied and well-structured game you automatically play more confidently, you have to always try to make the best possible moves for a given hand

To gain confidence and trust in poker, it's crucial to immerse yourself deeply in the game's strategies and maintain a healthy mindset. Start by mastering the basics: know your odds, understand different playing styles, and get comfortable with the numbers. Practice is key. Regular gameplay, coupled with reviewing and analyzing your hands, helps you learn from mistakes and successes alike. Embrace a learning mindset, where each session, win or lose, offers valuable insights. Mental resilience is equally important; work on managing emotions and stress, as poker can be a rollercoaster. Engage with the poker community for shared experiences and advice. Consider a coach to accelerate your growth, providing personalized strategies and feedback. Above all, balance is vital. Ensure you're looking after your physical health, as a sharp mind requires a healthy body. Remember, confidence builds with experience and knowledge. Keep learning, stay disciplined, and the trust in your game will grow.

If you don't trust the logarithm and the room, how will you play at high performance?

Any monetary investment is a risk. If you invest money in poker, you should understand that your money cannot be completely safe, because poker is always a risk. Unfortunately, there will always be those who want to hack your account. But it's not just about poker. Even when your money is kept in a reliable bank, even then there is a risk that something bad can happen. We live in such a time when risk is an integral part of our life.

The trust can only come with you and your ability in your game.

There are ways to measure this like making sure your play is positive EV as over the long run you will be doing the right thing and you can ride out the luck.

by not changing your game style at all , but i am saying this because by having a game style it supose to have a lot of knowledge of the poker game and poker plays ..the trust and confidence you gain only by reading well the game that is played in front of you and making the right decision , not by been lucky when you win a hand aldo your decison was very bad ...

The many experiences of success can give good self-confidence.
But if someone is a good player, he must know how to stay on the ground, not fly away because of success.
The game can also give self-confidence to less good players, one or two small or big victories are enough, which fills a person with pride and this also affects self-confidence.

You have to play a lot, gather a lot of experience and start winning, and from this comes self-confidence.

I think that I am quite confident in poker and I always try to improve my skills. What is sometimes difficult for me is trusting online poker, many hands and even the way some players play sometimes makes you doubt certain online sites. Especially in GG poker. But I think we have to be aware that we will never know how the online algorithm is handled.

Poker is a harsh mistress. She can always break your heart. Like golf you never truly master the game. Or like the sea or nature you can never underestimate them or take them lightly.

You always need to believe and trust yourself and not something else. Poker is like any other activity in this life, and an opportunity to make money. If you believe in yourself and work on yourself and your game, then there is a very high probability that you will achieve success in this field of activity. But if you believe in something or someone and not in yourself, then it is unlikely that you will succeed. If you adhere to theoretical knowledge and learn to feel the game, then you will have faith in yourself and, accordingly, you will get good results from the game.

Your win chart will give you confidence. Also reviewing hands and validating the play with some solvers can increase confidence.

As you play more and more, it builds confidence in your own play. Not in others, but in yourself
