This is a discussion on Software within the online poker forums, in the Learning Poker section; I have a question
If I do not have a good software, can I successfully play poker? Explain your answer:confused:
A man visits the doctor after an accident with his hands. The man asks "Docter, will i ever play the piano?". "Sure", the doctor replies. "Splendid, i never could.".
So, to play poker succesfully you have to be talented. When you are not good in maths, software can help you in that field. But it can never give you a good strategy or the feeling when to act in which way.
If referring to HUD / Database software, i would say although they are not 100% necessary to become a winning player, alot of players consider it to be a huge advantage. The real time HUD stats, whilst shouldn't be used solely to make our decisions, can definitely store a lot of info that you would more than likely have forgotten by the time it comes for you to use that information against them. I use Poker Tracker 4 and thoroughly recommend trying their 30 day free trial.
Yes, you can be a successful player without using poker software. Players did it for years before the advent of HUD/stat programs. In fact without them you are simply doing what live players have been doing every day since the game started being played.
None of you seem to understand. I'm not locked in here with all of you. All of you are locked in here with ME!
