Probably most of them have the same thing - tiltability. Still the correct location of the money.

It has helped me to be patient and to make some decisions based on calculated risks, that is, to analyze first with a little calm before making a decision and perhaps it has also helped me to read people a little.

Hello.
Yes, without a doubt, I learned a lot playing poker. I became more patient and effective in my personal life. Although poker is a hobby for me, in my case it is a very useful and positive hobby.

It's better applying what you learned from life to game.

When things going well or looks good, it might change to worse anytime. Like when you hit top set or straight on the flop later end up cracked by flushes, full houses etc.
At that point you're best, it looks guaranted but there's always two more cards to come and some people willing to risk it all for that probability. So you can't be in a control of anything everytime, it's the most common thing among poker and life.

I think I learned a couple of things playing poker, like patience and discipline are very important to have success in poker, but also in real life.

I learned that when it comes to making decisions, you should not be results-oriented. You should always make the best possible decision based on the best possible information you have at that moment in time. If things do not turn out as you had hoped then that is not your fault - you just had bad luck.

I learned to be more patient and know how to wait until the right time.
I think everyone agrees that the greatest learning is patience.

The most valuable thing in poker that you can transfer real life is endurance and patience.

Hi.
Thanks to poker, I have learned to control my emotions and stay focused for a long time. Obviously, poker develops useful skills in adequate players.
Good luck.

Be patient and let things ride it out/// (example if your in tourney and you have mid good hands its best to fold while other people are raising let them all fight each other) make your goal to be in the top 10 so you get good payout :)

Certainly patience before playing poker I liked to act on impulses in my personal life now I think a lot before making any decisions and I can say that this was only possible because of poker

I learn to be more patient, to think for a few seconds before giving an answer. In some, if not many times, life puts you at a poker table and you have no choice but to play.
