This is a discussion on What do I need to Succeed? within the online poker forums, in the Learning Poker section; Hello Guys,
What do I need to do in order to take my game to the next level?
I would love to hear what u guys do
It really depends on how serious about the game you are. I make it part of my day to day, and treat it like a job. (A job I dont have to go to if I'm not feeling it that day). So I make sure to schedule when I'm going to play. My study sessions, and study groups into my weekly schedule. And I also try to hit the gym before I play. This make me feel ackomplished before play. That is huge. Making sure your head is right, already feel ackomplished it's easier to play right and accept variance.

Surely, knowledge is the first. There are plenty of poker books written by great pro players, there are plenty of video clips on poker, so you should be educating and developing in that sense. In addition to knowledge, as I said, patience and time are needed, as no success comes at night. You need to invest a lot of time, effort and effort to succeed. You have to be your own manager in terms of money. To know how to allocate money from poker and to have it properly and not to get frozen because everything comes gradually. He teaches and just teaches and time will bring you success. Good luck!
Learn Bankroll Management and Patience to be successful.
The biggest thing you need to learn is bankroll management. If you can manage a bankroll properly then you've won 80% of the battle. I say this because each time you play you have no chance of losing your entire bankroll. You're only playing with a portion of your bankroll and a portion you can afford to lose if it comes down to it. You're also moving up and down the stakes as your stack increases or decreases so you learn to adjust your playing style according to the level you are playing, making playing all levels more profitable.
After bankroll management, I would say patience is the biggest thing. Being able to wait for the good hands through long droughts of crap hands is vital to maintaining a healthy stack in either tournaments or cash games. if you're not patient and start playing A6o aggressively just because you haven't played a hand in several orbits then you're going to get crushed when you do play a hand.
I, personally, have neither of these to any great extent. but I've noticed when I do practice these I sustain a stack and make it further in tournaments. Unfortunately, I like to play for fun and end up playing lots of hands and joining stakes higher than I should.

To learn poker, the most important thing is to read a lot about the game, starting with strategic articles. I like to watch professional videos to prepare myself before playing poker.
The biggest advice is especially not to get stressed in the tournament. Come relaxed, rested, calm.Play relaxed has the advantage of playing calmly, and therefore making the right decisions. Poker, we can not say it enough, is a game of patience and reflection. It's important to take your time, to know when to make a move.
also think of drinking regularly, and preferably water.boire helps hydrate our brain, and therefore better to operate.
Hello, I try to read books about poker, look for training in some pages and see how other players play their hands to be able to learn. I try to play in a closed way and not play all the hands, avoiding entering with trash hands that could compromise my chips. The ideal is to be focused and not go crazy and lose your mind, this is going to make us lose our entire bank. The music helps to relax and decontract haha. regards
The game must be constantly disassembled.Allocate yourself to start at least one day for this (Wednesday is best).And the sport definitely does not hurt.And in the five-minute breaks, do not smoke, go, and it is better to press 20-30 times and again into battle)
I'm always reviewing sessions. Either talking with my friend who also plays or just playing them over in my head to see where I mad mistakes or what I did right. Studying is something I do whenever I have spare time. YouTube, coaching sites and books are my sources of information. Playing and executing new learnings are going to improve you play. You can't get enough time at the table. Make sure you play within your bankroll and make sure when you move up in stakes you have at least 100 buy-ins or more. Bankroll Management is going to be key to your success. remember Poker is a break even game. If you play properly and manage your money you'll have more opportunities to succeed.
In my opinian like most of games.........we need practice...but practice with discipline......improving and trying the best all time......and to be very strong mental is verry important.....maybe most important then all strategies....
If you really want to go to the next level you should review your games. I will go over a couple of times a week each tournament I play to see if there is something I could have done differently. I not just looking for mistake but if the was a way to have won more chips or lose less in a hand. Example. you have pocket aces raise and get called by the SB and the flop is A72 rainbow, the SB checks and you bet pot and he thinks for a while and folds. Yes you won a pot but could you have won more. Now lets pretend its me and I called in the SB with A5c the flop had no clubs by the way. I folded as I lose to almost any Ace better kicker you could have. You flopped the top set on a very dry board. I would have called a 1/2 pot flop but the full pot got me to fold. When reviewing this type of hand you could ask and see was there something I could do better. What hands were you trying to get value from? Smaller pairs and aces are the most likely thing and sets if your lucky. You could deduct that this bet may have been a mistake as a pot bet would scare of a lot of players but a smaller bet may have gotten you more chips. This type of review can really be helpful but you need to be honest with yourself when you do review you hands.
Good evening everyone.
You need to study hard and practice.
It is advisable to take a poker course, I also recommend seeing professional players playing poker online, many players often make trades via thwitch. And luck is key to being a winning player.
don't know if you are looking for paid content or what not, but I think dto is great. I mean its not for everybody, but the grinder for $10 a month or 100 for the year. Shows the right answers and you can play many different spots and what not. Really helpful IMO.
I would think practice. After you know all there is to it. I used to play by myself with 8 other ghost players. After i had it quick,knowing all my outs, what can beat me ect. Then its all about working yr bluff skills. Good luck
I believe in using every tool at your disposal to learn - videos, books but also watching and analyzing streams of high level tournaments.
However, increasingly I believe there is little which can supplant personal experience and putting in endless hours of play- there is no substitute, no short cut.
Anyone who is self-aware should be able to focus on their own personal weaknesses in comparison to stronger players and start to make adjustments and at their own pace. Personally I think this is the key to development over the longer term.
There's a lot good advice on here so far, but the real question is, what level are you at now? If you're near the top of the game, the answer is different, if you're a complete noob.
That being said there are a few universal things that I believe are important. As someone else mentioned, bank roll management is very important. There are a number of players, good players that have gone bankrupt due to poor BRM.
Other than that, simple things really help a game. Play with a clear head; Pay attention to the action, even if you're not in it; and it never hurts to read one more poker book.
Is folding JKo UTG+1 too nitty?
I agree with many, most importantly patience. Then good luck. Ability to work with a combination of both, to calculate all the possible hands on the flop. Now if I do not fell on the flop, I take off. Because if once the card is not present, there is no reason to go further. It is worth to think soberly evaluate all the odds, a rarity on the turn that you have improved, but this also happens. Play sober, I drink, I lose everything and do not think. Eat chocolate with nuts, brains will turn on)))) To be honest, I still do not know all poker hands, how to play, to build a bankroll. Nevertheless, he won prizes. Nobody will say their strategy, it comes with experience.
