This is a discussion on Intuition within the online poker forums, in the General Poker section; Do you ever rely on intuition guys and what's your experience with it, have you got any awesome stories including it?
There was a moment when my intuition told me to call in an all in cash game and I had jack jacks and guess how much I won ahhhh I won nothing by the way I lost 18 $ because the villain had a 98765 strath Flush and I JJJJ but the I get it right the intuition that I'm going to win a triple all in with linked cards and I end up doing a beautiful sequence.
In Poker, intuition is not everything you have to be lucky and know how to fold too.
I rarely rely on intuition. I am more inclined to rely on my own skills and experience. But if your intuition allows you to increase your bankroll then it is great and you should keep going.
My intuition tells me.. i like the look of this hand. Then 2 players go all in.. i fold because my cards arnt exactly the best for all in pre flop.. J 8 suited for example.. then i see the flop 8 8 J.. kickin myself i knew i should of went in.. but then my intuition tells me AK suited i could possible go all in. My guts telling me to.. only to see that i lose to someone who called J 8 suited and hit a full house on the flop.. so intuition.. or statistic influenced intuition.. sometimes hard to distinghish
Yeah, always. It speaks about cues we consciously don't notice. The problem is when you don't really trust it, you will betray yourself. When having a hunch, remember the FIRST feeling that came. Introspection and analysis are necessary to identify, but mine is almos always right. Go with it.
Awesome stories with intuition are just the usual coincidences of falling cards and your imagination. I do not believe in this and always protect myself from thoughts that what I need will now fall on the table. To confirm my statements, there is a simple mathematical pattern of cards falling out.
As far as I understand intuition, this is knowledge that you have deposited in the far corners of your memory, repetitive situations that are not clearly postponed, but exist in the subcortex. And when the right situation comes, but you don't pay attention to it, your intuition speaks of your vision of playing a hand in poker.
I know a lot of players who play only on intuition and do not pay attention to the development of their knowledge of poker.
But I also know that intuition alone cannot hold out for the whole tournament, all the more intuition can fail. But I play some hands myself purely intuitively, but only in the case when I enter state A.
What is intuition?This is your inner feeling and it is like luck is always different.Either he's telling the truth or he's trying to fall.So I would not advise relying on it, although people are different and anticipate situations on the front.
I almost always trust my intuition and it is usually correct
The few times I decide against it is typically because of pot odds and then I call and see what I "knew" intuitively and should have folded. I have so many crazy stories relating to intuition. I won't type them into detail here because that could be a book on its own lol. I've got hero calls, folding AA, sick folds of Full House over Full House and many more.
I think every poker player has these stories come up for them sometimes, but it seems like I get way more of them than the average player and I know it is in large part because my intuition has served me well
1st place finish at CardsChat 30 Day Course Freeroll (May 31, 2020). As my first ever CardsChat event, this one will always be special for me.
Once I flopped a set of tens. But the flop was very draw-heavy. Flush and straight-draws were possible. I had 4 opponents. 3 did a lot of action. I knew that I would only win with a full house. I took the risk and i got the full house while one of my opponents was finishing his nut flush. I won a big pot with it. I have a rough strategy that I follow, but every now and then you have to play freely according to intuition. But I would never fold kings preflop, even if I was sometimes right about my opponent holding pocket aces. Even if my opponent already goes all in preflop. I still don't fold pocket kings preflop.
Intuition is that feeling in your gut when you instinctively know that something you are doing is right or wrong. While understanding intuition offers a considerable challenge for science, broadly speaking, it involves “learned responses that are not the outcomes of deliberate processes”. While intuition occurs in your day-to-day life, it is sometimes most apparent in the decisions of experts. The specialist draws on years of experience, held in unconscious frameworks, to make fast, high-quality decisions. I guess that happens to poker players. And I really think intuition needs to be obeyed.
Intuition helps you to guess the opponents cards. So is he just bluffing or does he really have the straight or flush?
But at the ends the cards decides who have won the pot and not the intuition. So you just can use intuition to decide if you want to call e.g the all in or fold. It is also important to fold in the right moment.
Intuition, as a prediction of the opponent's actions, sometimes prompts to do the right action, and the hands do the opposite, therefore, when choosing from three actions, when doubt arises, it is better to change the decision and do otherwise.
Intuition can actually be very helpful in some tough spots, but only if you can distinguish intubation from a simple desire to gamble.
For example, if you are playing a live cash game, and facing a huge bet on the river, sometimes you just feel that you have to call with your 3rd pair. You don't know what exactly it is, but something just won't let you fold your poor hand. This might be your "intuition".
But when you are thinking to call off two all-ins with 96 suited, this has nothing to do with intuition. This is just gambling or desire to suck out and win easy pot.
Sometimes I rely on intuition, but this is not very common! It seems to me that intuition also plays its role in poker, but in the first place is still discipline and a lot of luck))))) I would advise you not to rely on intuition, but to play more disciplined! I wish you good luck at the tables!
