I'm still losing but for me is patience and the ability to fold big hands.

If the player is not disciplined, then knowledge will not help...

Hello. I have read almost all the comments - guys, I agree with you and I want to say that everything you listed, I sum up in one word for myself: advantage. I would also highlight diligence, in the sense that having reached a certain level, one should not stop and rest on one's laurels - there is always something to learn and improve.

A successful poker player embodies a blend of skill, discipline, and psychological fortitude. They grasp game intricacies, exploit opponents' weaknesses, and adapt strategies dynamically. Effective bankroll management and emotional control are fundamental. Continuous learning and self-reflection drive improvement, while resilience fuels longevity in the game.

What makes a player successful is study, concentration, a good healthy life, having clear objectives and never stopping learning, even the champion himself has things to improve.

What are the skills/abilities and knowledge that are most important for being a winning poker player?
Is Poker Based more on Luck or Skills?
Patience, persistence and practice are the main things. With that you have to put in study and review time if you are really serious about the game. Talking to others of various skill levels (both higher and lower) about different events, hands, formats, ect can also increase your knowledge and skill.

Mastering skills is lucky and you have to win 2 out of 3 hands 😀.

No. 1 and the most important is a good Bankroll Management: - if you want to succeed in Poker you need a strong bankroll management, without it you will not get far.
No. 2 is discipline : - you need to be disciplined in order to not deviate from your strategy... ( study daily, don't play emotional, don't play tired )
No. 3 is desire to improve : - since Poker is a constantly evolving you have to keep up, and in order to do that, you have to want to become better and better...to achieve that you need to study all the time.
No. 4 is luck : - luck is always involved in Poker, but what is more important is that luck is not the defining thing here...your skills learned by hard work and consistency will make you profitable in long term.
