Usually most players ask: What does it take to be a good poker player? After reading and researching, in response I found: Patience and Discipline. But what kind of answer is that? Well the best one I found.
Why do you need patience? Patience to wait for the right cards and the right time to play them.
Patience to endure a downswing
Patience for the results to arrive.
Why do you need discipline? Discipline to play at your level due to Paciencia.jpgDisciplina.jpg
Yes, i believe in those two things as the base for a good player, plus the knowledge about the players who you´re playing against in the table, so you can learn how they play and then put your abilities to make the best play and take the pot.
Yes, it is true that it is key to have patience and discipline, but you should also study your rivals a lot at the table and how to play your cards according to occasions, so it is not only patience and discipline.
Yes, these 2 things are important. I think you also analyze the hands played yourself. But you also have to wonder; what is my level in poker ?. Surely a possible answer to that question could be managing the bankroll well. In the long term, we want to go up, some go up a bit, others a lot.
I absolutely agree with you. I also believe that patience and discipline are two key skills for success and not just in poker. Obviously, patience and discipline will allow you to gain the necessary experience and become a successful player.
the two most important things in poker very well said by creating these two habits at the foot of the letter you can become a good poker player I in particular have to improve quite in both aspects but above all more in patience
I believe discipline and patience go hand and hand. Having patience is practicing good discipline. I'll give you myself as an example. My strategy involved playing Cash games. I would play a session until I got at least one cent above my buy-in and once I did I stopped until hours later and played again. I would make $1.30 some sessions and other sessions I would pull $53.45. Some sessions I would only pull $2.40, some $5.67 but ultimately I would stay consistent. I would pull up my tracker app and see nothing but profits. Small profits but profits nonetheless. I turned a $50 bankroll into $325 involving multiple cash game sessions. That takes discipline and patience. Study however I believe is the other component. Without that, I never would have got one cent above any of those buy-ins. Good Luck!
