When you lose for hours, or for days on end, what do you learn from your losses?
I have friends who think that poker is a sport to spend a few hours, regardless of losing or winning!
from these statements what do you think you can learn from your defeats?
After losing , I try to analyze where I wrong, we can not fix our mistakes if we can not see where we are wrong
as a consequence of this, I usually do analize hands, reviewing games can cause you to stay positive
what the foundation to enter into an aimless poker tournament?
if you do it in, you will surely lose your money

I learned that there are better players than me, with a strategy different from mine, and I also review some bad calls I made.

With all certainty acting in this way you will achieve your goals, nothing comes free, everything needs effort and dedication

the road to success is full of failures ... every mistake made is an apprenticeship

I try to pay attention to how others are playing--not just at the micro level, say at my table, but across tournaments, at the macro level. Poker is both cyclical and trendy. This means that you risk more than just being transparent to others at your table if you refuse to adapt and take notice. You risk being unaware of leaks caused by a lack of self-awareness. For example, I like to think that if you are aware of certain styles such as TAG or LAG, and trendy betting habits such as 2.2X, you can use this information within a tournament to exploit play by others, and also to occasionally mix up your identity at the table--and from one table to another. So, not only evaluate others at your table but also change it up and present a different identity here and there to confuse your opponents and to adapt to situational spots in tournaments. In this way, you're not just randomly mixing it up but you actually have a sense of purpose in what you are trying to accomplish. I think this approach allows you to both minimize losses and maximize profits by not allowing others to place you in a box--at least not a box that is not of your design and choosing.

Learning is a roadway with potholes called mistakes. To make the same mistakes over and over again is called extreme stupidity, and you never will progress.

I learn more from my tilt sessions. It's all about discipline and knowing that poker is a journey and not a race.

Perfect placement, I usually follow some of these steps, but I'll put all mostly in practice in my games

We learn more from our mistakes than from successes. All-in pre-flop, in initial position with 99, an opponent decides to call with KK, you make a three of a kind and wins the hand. Your brain takes it as a winning move. Then you have to lose twenty times with a pair of nine to recognize that it is a wrong play. That's why we learn more from mistakes than from success. It is always good to review our losing hands so that we can become better players.

I feel like if people make mistakes and dont learn from them then they will find it very hard to progress in poker.

Not only losses but also winnings. Sometimes you won due to bad moves getting lucky for you. Your winnings can have been bad playstyle short term variance in your favour; learn from winnings too, analyse with vigilance.

my game session almost always ends with an analysis of the played hands, regardless of whether I won or not! and I advise you to do the same!

I do so, in each lost or won distribution I look at it on the other hand and I consider that I was mistaken in any distribution. The fact that I was mistaken, says that it - where to grow and if I sort the moment with a mistake, then further it will not happen to me also I will be which is better for playing. Each mistake demonstrates that in poker there are things which we do not know, so they can learn. I treat mistakes with a positive, the rage will not improve my game in any way, will not return the lost counters, and will only tire out in tilt then I will not be able qualitatively to finish a session any more. Also I mark the lost this distribution and in details I sort and I analyze it after the session.

Everyone is trying to evaluate their mistakes. Otherwise, you will always lose. Only the poker game is built on mathematics and probability theory. Some moments of the game are hard to bring to a concrete denominator.

of course spending several hours playing poker you gain a certain experience and of course learn from your mistakes and see what mistakes your opponents are making General conclusions and your friends are also right that they consider poker as a sport as for every person poker plays a role

I learnt something today. It is like my view of poker has changed entirely. I know one day is so little time but I will definitely want to see how this turns out in future.

Lately I have grinded NL2 like a madman. I am a winning player in that level, but the amount of daily bad beats is so freaking ridiculous. Aces getting cracked by some brainless J6o shove preflop etc.. That simply leads to frustration against the game. Bluffs are basically impossible since you get always called with bottom pair over your failed draw or something like that. What I did today, was changing to NL10. People actually do understand the value of money there and respects raises. Ranges are not so wide there so as pretty tight player, you end up winning wayyy more often.
I try to remember posting my progress here if I remember/have energy to do so. I had to share this because I was stunned how well your style can manage in another stake level. Just wow.

Thats a key topic, and the vast majority of poker players dont do it. Its much easier to just blame bad luck ir say its rigged than actually put in the work to become a good player.
