By my opinion, the luck is the most important in poker play. You need to use your knowledge but you also need to rely on your instincts and these instincts are developing with experience in poker play. So, you can always think that you are good player and lose if luck is not in your favor that day.

I don't know, because I am not.

The only thing that is really important - is to understand, that you are a bad player, even if you think you good enough, you still must concentrate on your game. I,m sure if you ask Daniel Negreanu, he will say that he is a bad player and he still has something new to learn in poker.

I think the answer is pretty easy. Go to shark scope and look at your stats. It's a math based game and the numbers don't lie. After a few thousand games, what is your ROI (return on investment)?

umm what happens when sharkscope is wrong?

which in my case is 100% true.

I never deposited in life till jan this year to try out bitcoin on some sites

I withdrew 600 in 2015 and 800 in 2016 off acr

It says I am down 263 something says first game is nov 21 2014

now my first game was jan 2003 on acr since then its folded up sites and got everything messed up by me and now my handle thetick33777 is from doyles room which says ive played since 2005 now ive played pokerhost supposably since about that time so maybe some of the confusion but host is from 2006 lol so

sharkscope is wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy off on all my stats so is what it is

i did block sharkscope at one point for over year also and that messed up things more

So if you looked at me youd think im a losing player ... yet somehow my total deposit history on wpn is 35 dollars lol so emmm ya great job sharkscope lol

If you have won a strong freeroll tournament, do you think this is a reason to think you may have the qualities of a good player? Or is it a matter of luck? How do you know when you became a good player?

You do not realize you just play and you see that every day you go better and you get great results and the losses you have you recognize are your mistakes.

I'm sorry but I disagree, every poker game is full of different types of players, lots of donks, aggressive players, passive and a few good all round players. In freebuys the amount of good all round players is less and the amount of donks is higher. The higher the stakes, the less donks and good players is alot higher. A freebuy win show an element of skill but to be a good all round player you have a long way to go buddy. It takes years of tournament play to be considered a good player, you must be extremely adaptable at all levels of play, each tournament is played differently depending on the situation. Once you regularly make it past the bubble and profit the better the player you are.

Good players are people who are profitable and successful in the long run. Winning any Poker tournament requires a -lot- of luck and a fair amount of skill.

You have to ask yourself, while we might qualify people like Phil Ivey, Daniel Negreanu as good at Poker, how come they haven't made the November 9 in recent years? That's the luck part!

Good Player

When I see my name in lights!! LoL Usually the proof is in the pudding. When people see me at a table and the first thing they think is "Ah Crap" , I feel like I am making good decisions. I know I am getting better when I am having fun, staying in the plus and can take a punch and get back up. Play smart, stay humble and have fun. :cool:

When you learn to analyze your distributions to see your mistakes and no longer allow them, this will be a good level already. When you realize that you play without errors, adhering to poker math, then you can consider yourself a good player. A victory in a tournament or freeroll is not an indicator

In fact, the quality of your game should be reflected on your credit card account or in the office of Neteller or Skrill.
A good player takes out more money than he spends on the game. Note - displays, and not just counts the amount of bankroll in the poker room. ;)

I fully agree with the colleague above, but maybe you have a good game but have to play several games to make a profit

Honestly i think good players naturally do well, yes there will be times when you run bad but good players often do well and have results to show for it

I think poker is a game where you have to have luck, skill and courage. If they do you have, then you're a good player.

Tournaments have so much variance. In my opinion, winning one tournament does not necessarily mean that you are a good player. I think making constant profits over a long period of time proves that you are actually good at poker

You became a good player when you start cashing out and buying with it the things you cannot buy before.
Even if you win so much and you keep losing it back, you aint that good yet.
