This is a discussion on you analyze your loss within the online poker forums, in the General Poker section; Do you analyze your loss, do you change the style of your game or do you play also, does the loss improve your next game?
It is definitely very important to analyze those hands in which we lose ... we can lose playing well because the variance exists or we can lose playing badly because we made mistakes ... this analysis exercise helps me a lot to improve my game ...!
not more because there are many, in the freeroll I have been making good money .. this is profit and even if I lose I do not see as losses, but investments to learn more playing .. After I got 500 dollars of losses I stopped depositing and think about it. poker now is fun.
If you want to improve your poker skills, one of the most important steps on the way to this goal is the analysis of your played hands.The essence of the analysis is to make sure that during the game you pursue a certain goal, seeing how each small step brings you closer to it as far as possible. The next time you play, write two to four hands. Decide which strategies are capable of surpassing your opponents in these distributions. After that, analyze your hands to understand where you followed your strategy, and where you ignored it. If you begin to analyze your sessions in this way, then you will become a stronger opponent for other players.
When I lose a hand, I analyze what I did wrong, which I could have avoided losing. Especially when playing cash game. Often it is for a simple lack of reading of the game, think about the possibilities that the opponent player has. But it's part of the game, I already lost hands that I won with Full House (k-3) on the river and another 3 came and the player made Quads of 3. Apart from almost playing my notebook on the wall after losing a hand like this, I saw that I should have been more aggressive in the move and thus avoid having lost the hand and expelled the player that made me lose LOL
I look over most of my hand histories, especially looking for miss spots that I should be taking. Im trying to keep my game somewhat balanced, though Im not sure what my lines look like to other players. Add to the fact, sometimes I confuse the lines Im taking with the lines I want to representing.
It's really interesting to analyze all our behavior, sometimes I win with not very smart play and I lose 95% in the pre-flop, poker is a very difficult incomplete math of a precise or certain analysis, sryulaw (https://www.cardschat.com/members/sryulaw/) quotes above, I am also basically a freeroll player, everything I have named bankroll I won in freerolls so I only count gain, sometimes it goes up, sometimes it goes down, as I have never spent anything but my time in learning and being here in Cardschat place of the opportunities in freerolls and learning in the practice of poker
You don't need to analyze your lose to improve.. analyze your whole play on every street with all the hands you are playing. If you are losing does not mean that your played bad and You should change that, or If your win does not mean that know everything and și everything perfectly.
So.. improve your play don't try to change Something just cause You lost.
All of the time. I may find a nuanced adjustment in bet sizing or something technical in any particular hand. But for me, It's how my play affects my table image and as such how I may influence the play of others with aggressive or passive play.
A difficulty is playing so many freerolls with all of the bingo players those players often play ridiculous cards and getting lucky and or jsut shove, seems like for sport. The longer a game goes, generally, the better the players, the more good play matters.
When I have a really really good hand and thinking that the hand is already mine suddenly spears the rivers card killing all my expectations to get the hand and then first of all u get pissed off about the lost but I always see what movement I did wrong. Maybe I don’t bet too much or should fold before. Then I think must be lag and everything is controlled by some god superior which choose who s going to be the winner....
We should always analyze where we are losing and how it is happening, the best way to analyze all this is to review your games, so you can see where you are win, or where you are losse, and so you can balance everything so as not to have high losses
Of course, if I did not, I would not be aware of how to improve my game and avoid making the same mistakes over and over again. Even when you think you have played a tournament or a hand in the best way it is always good to analyze and review what you did and one of the best options is to share with poker friends and show their hands to have different points of view. Undoubtedly to improve your game you have to look back and analyze it to see where you are and then set goals to reach the next level. Good luck at the tables !!!
you must always analyze your game to understand the reason for your loss sometimes it's impatience sometimes nerves or fatigue, although during freerolls you can do everything correctly but lose because it's online poker
Do you analyze your loss, do you change the style of your game or do you play also, does the loss improve your next game?
If i paid to play...and I lose...I'm going to at least give a fast though about it.
Most times....just a real fast thought. The thinking is usually done before I get to the coffee pot to fill my coffee cup up. That's a fact.
And it may, or may not, change how I play later on.
If I'm buying into games with the intention to win, and that's my goal, and
if I'm playing seriously, trying to play my best game, and I lose.....
I think long and hard, and then most likely, something will change in the next game.
If I'm paying to get into games with that goal to win...and I'm losing consistantly, not finishing in the money....I'm evaluating.
There are a lot of variables as to why it might, or might not, change how I play,
or even why I might, or might not give it much thought.
And that statement applies to everyone that plays poker. Even if they don't know it.
A lot of variables.
But it all ends at ..."knowledge" and "mind set".
Some people just want to play poker to win money every single time they sit in a game because they know they can.
My opinion is.....
the greatest of the players just want to play poker because they are good at it,
they make money at it, and others recognize their ability in their play.
As far as all those real good players analyzing day and night on ever single loss, bad beat, or losing streak ..??......
I'm not hearing them rant on cardschat about it.
Those guys tend to know....SHT HAPPENS! in online poker...and all the analyzing in the world ain't going to change nothing about that. lol
They also know...when to walk to the coffee pot, or the liquor cabinet, or the smoke tray....and take a breath.
There's alot of over analyzing going on.
It's not impossible to get inside the other guys mind...
but you can't do it just playing one or two games with them.
That's where those stats make fast decisions handy.
You can't teach a guy to fill a dent in a car with lead....
you can tell him the process, you can show him how it's done, you give him all the tricks and tips you've learned over a generation....
but if he can't light a torch.....he can't melt the lead.
Better let him use bondo.
It's easier to sand.
And if he messes up..it's easier to fix.
NOW...that you've taken the time to read all that.
I'm not a poker player.
I play poker.
But I'm a long way from being a poker player.
there are simple rules:
play with strong hands, risk only with strong hands
Do not bet a lot until you see the flop
to be able to wait, survival is of great importance
do not succumb, when your opponent tightens you, you need to throw even AA if you see that the opponent can have a set of 2
of course! the main thing in poker is to look for mistakes in your game and not to repeat them in the future! hmm great for reviewing your game and detecting errors! if you do not analyze your game you will constantly make the same mistake! themselves without noticing!
When i started playing online poker, i analyzed every hand i lost. I've been doing that for 1year. I analyzed every lost. That's how i improved my game, my play style. That's how i grown big into the online poker tournaments. As a poker player i build my own strategy, I'm making exceptions on my plays but they're really rare. But in general analyzing games/hands are important for the beginners so they can improve their self's.Good luck to everybody.
