There are a lot of very strong players right now in the Russian speaking poker community. Poker players think that all Russians are crazy, and they might be right a little bit. When Russians start to bluff, they can’t stop. Daniel Negreanu said one time that if Russians didn’t bluff so much they would win every tournament. They just love to bluff, and show the biggest bluffs, because that’s the reason for liking poker.

As far as I have experienced they tend to put you to the test for your stack any time they sense weakness.

If to speak about online poker, then I consider that the level of the Russian players is one many higher than an average. At least on those limits on which I play. For example in the SnG tournaments on 45 players where on average about ten Russians at a final table get usually the person 3-4 of these 10.

In the United States in more than 100 years of poker playing. That's why there's so many good players. Poker in Russia only gaining popularity. Will not be more than 20 years, and Russian players will be no worse than the American

I'm wondering if Vladimir Putin play poker as well like his peoples. Does he like bluffing as well ? He play at the high stakes or just making his bankroll from freerolls ? :D ... pffff ... you do realize if you win against him you win against Russia ? :D
Anywway, about the question...not sure what's higher at russians : knowledge or luck ? And if they are so lucky then what's the best method to play against them when you loose everytime even if you have the better preflop hand ?

I think they have the strange habit of sharing the cardschat freeroll password everytime on the vk community so all the russians can get into the games even if they don't even know what cardschat means and take the whole money to the motherland

Putin is so grateful for that
