I was wondering what everyone feels is their biggest weakness: do you tilt too easily? do you play too many hands? do you play at the wrong times? etc.

For me, I would say that my lack of patience is my biggest weakness: impatience while playing games and impatience to wait for optimum games/times to play.

How about you? Would love to hear from everybody! ;)

I have realised that my worst enemy when I am playing poker is my EGO. Actually I am working in that and I feel much better.

I need to be more resistant about my patience, so my weakness is mindset.

My biggest weakness as a poker player is keeping my emotions in check after a few bad beats. I tend to go on tilt and lose a chunk of my bankroll before I get myself back in check.

My biggest weakness right now I would say is I probably Cbet too much. I am consistently trying to spot leaks in my game and correct them but sometimes I go a little extreme with Cbetting.

Definitely my biggest weakness is a combo between tilting after several bad beats in a row :)mad:) and underestimation of opponents. Often times it seems like they either have a weak Hand or no Hand at all, then @ Showdown Opponent Shows Hands - trips, straights, flushes.

When i hit a decent or a big score i feel like a have some money to just burn and i am doing some stupid things like overbetting underdogs in sports, playing overall bad thinkless poker etc. Just a "give some back to the community" approach.

My only "weakness" is not feeling sorry if people who hate me are eliminated and so on (in cc events) :)

Impatience is the biggest enemy of poker players (at least that's what I think) because it makes you make bad decisions. In Venezuela we say "patience is a virtue". GL

It was not being patient and playing too many hands. Once I learned that, it was what to do in the SB. It takes a different strategy playing in that position.

monster hand

My biggest weak point is when I had a monster hand.

Even if an opponent has a stronger monster hand, there are a lot of things which can't feel that.

My biggest weakness is sometimes forgetting that there are strong players everywhere. I'm not saying that I think I play good and everybody else plays bad. But there are large number of players out there who count on luck. Their strategy seems to be to play bad and get lucky. Then there are players that don't play that bad. And there are some that don't play bad at all. But I often forget that there are really good players out there, the kind that know how to switch things up and shift gears, who know how to set traps.

Every once in a while I encounter one of these players. After the cards get turned over and surprise of how good a hand I was up against has had a moment fade, I realize that I should have seen it. But I get used to players shoving any Ace from A-10 up, and coin flipping with any pocket pair that I forget that there are legitimately good players out there that know how to slow play hands, set traps, and even play a hand so it looks like an obvious bluff when they actually have the nutz.

Oddly enough, my biggest weakness as a poker player is playing in an online casino.:(

It's not a bad idea to hear the weakness of other players to use this knowledge in Cardschat tournaments. My weakness manifests itself when I can't recognize my opponent's weaknesses and I have to call all in preflop.

I have many shortcomings, sometimes I watch too many hands, and sometimes I easily go into tilt, but my biggest drawback is that I often lose)))

k 3 of diamonds is a monster and should be played at all times, regardless of any situation

I would think telling everyone else your weakness may in fact be your weakness.
Always working on all aspects of my game and adapting to the ever changing challenges of the game.

I'm very worried to mention my weaknesses on the forum. Only thing I say is impatient.

I have multiple weaknesses. My biggest weakness is executing bluffs and reading opponents hands. I always can't figure out if my opponent has a hand or not.

Tiltness! (is that a word?)

an angry player goes to a bad palce, makes mistakes, call OOP and more bad decisions in general....

Never tilt, take a break!
