Hi Everybody, Ive had alot more time to play lately because of this pandemic. For me the more I play, the more I realize how much there is to learn about poker. I am just curious to know what others have learned lately as a result of being able to play more? It would be great to hear from both beginners and also those who are very experienced.
For me it has been:
EV (plus or minus)
Bet sizing Equity
Over the last few months, I have been able to significantly improve my skills and increase my bankroll through freerolls. I am also a beginner and I believe that our community is the best place to learn and improve the game. https://www.cardschat.com/become-a-w...-poker-player/
I completely agree Michka.
CC is a great to learn. I havent taken the course yet but I plan on doing so..
Remember this :
Many people fall in love with playing poker for a living because of the freedom this lifestyle seems to offer. While that is true, the freedom you actually get is not exactly what people imagine.
My friend plays poker for a very long time, but other than the basic concepts did not go into a more in-depth study, he still considers himself a novice, but this does not prevent him from earning money. He says that poker is too changeable and once you learn a technique, it stops working after a short time and all the knowledge just fills your head meaninglessly, instead, he studies the game of other players and adopts something for himself. Of course it's not serious, but he makes money, maybe he's just lucky.
Daniel Negreanue says that the moment you think there is nothing else to learn about Poker, is the moment you begin to fall back as a player.
I agree with this quotation a lot; Negreanu always seems to have good poker insight.
By the way, I've learned a lot myself too. I took the 30 day cardschat course and freeroll at the end of it (on May 31st) and I really enjoyed the experience; the 30 day course has really good content that everyone can benefit from hearing: especially beginner to intermediate players. Even on the days (each "day" is a different topic) I thought I was more knowledgeable in, I still usually learned something small or looked at something in a different light.

You just perfectly described the Dunning-Kruger effect. It's an interesting topic if you're interested in phycology. Essentially, It describes a person's perceived knowledge of a topic compared to their actual knowledge of the topic. It explains why someone who knows absolutely nothing about a topic thinks they know everything there is to know and why someone who's highly experienced thinks they know so little. It boils down to the fact that the person who knows almost nothing about the topic doesn't know how much more they have to learn about the topic and that the more experienced person knows they have so much more to learn.
In your case, it seems that you're still being introduced to new concepts and learning how much more you have to learn about poker.
Good luck out there and keep your head up!
Poker can be unforgiving.
