If you want to win in poker you need to keep patience every time. I often go well in different tournaments, but can easily loose my patience and so loose lots of chips or just be knocked out from the tournament, where i just was a cheap leader. I understand, that i can play pretty well, but sometimes this wrong moves( because of patience) can be disappointing.
My weakness is always my patience, I mean, lack there of. If I get bored then I start playing dumb hands or I try to play too many tables at once for the action but then I'm not paying as close attention to the table
Keep calling when I know I am beat. I put my opponent in a range and keep telling my self that he beats me only with this two cards. I analyze his position and the pre flop , post flop action and after that I call and lose my chips :P
Do you know what your greatest weakness in poker ?
Everytime when I get monster draw on the flop, even bubble time in the tournament I can't from fold with so many outs because in my own perception if you fold your hand heavy draws on the flop like Jd, Qd, flopped with 10d, 9d, 3c..I feel I can't win the tournament.
Tournament nowadays need some skills with a gambling spirit and lot of luck to win it.
my weakest part of NL texas holdem is playing against a TAG type player. A player that only plays 15% of all hands received. I hate playing players that only PLAY GREAT cards. I love playing loose players and any other type other than the TAG.
How it looks like me! But I think that we just need to play more often and psychologically indecision must pass. Shall we try?
I am starting to realise that my weakness wasn't so much folding when I had decent hands, but playing too tight. Once I started bluffing more and stealing blinds I can now afford to play more with good hands (but not premium hands).
my weakness is probably playing too safe. I wait for good cards and then when I do play everyone folds because they realise that I am a cautious player. I have to try to sometimes use that to my advantage.
My weakness is boredom when I am card dead.
I can handle the long tourneys and the emotions but when I am card dead
for 2 hours, I begin to play cards I would not normally because I'm tired of not playing. Been working on it but the struggle is real.
Honestly its my patience and boredom. Have seen that my mental issues are a problem. So, I work on it... It also shows me, my weaknesses that carry over in my private life....
Yes, poker is more than cards an money to me. Its also an indicator of my personal weaknesses... Have to be honest, face the facts, or continue to lose more cash.
My biggest weakness in poker is the moment of the tournament, when I have to choose between to get a good prize, because I'll just stay to it, or try to win first place and get 10 times less than the first option in case of failure.
my weakenss mainly in live poker is not raising bets enough when im sure i have the best hand, i usually would just call it down to showdown just because i might have the fear that they just might have a better hand, most times they dont lol, need more confidence in my raising aspect

Tilting because the cards have been cold and I see my stack dwindling. I start to feel pressure to do something. Things usually end badly.
Not folding AA or KK. For some reason it's very difficult to me. My intuition can tell me to fold and I usually don't. It can logically look like a good idea to fold it and I rarely do. I've gotten out on AA, KK or AK/AQ more frequently than probably any other hands.
