"7 and 2... aways win" - Paulao, the dealer, in a live poker house that I play
"trust me, hold your cards and trust that it's gonna be ok" - Also Paulao
"the first quads win a beer today" - The owner of the poker club that I play
And "you don't need to be a good racer to be a good mechanic, so don't listen just the pros" - I Don't remember from what book
Poker in general, not just tournaments, is a marathon. Ignore short term results and look at each hand as if I make this play 100 times or 1000 times how many times of those will it be profitable. Then how can you adjust to make it more profitable?
It is necessary to derive benefit from each loss. Analyze the not productive parties and you reveal mistakes which in the future try not to allow any more. Remember that loss, as well as a successful game, is an invaluable experience. In the future it will surely bring you benefit and will cover all earlier suffered losses.
Whats the best advice you have heard from an experienced poker player
Greg Merson told me that he knew when he needed to have it and when he didn't need to have it. Specifically when it came to overbetting, he knew who he could overbet as a bluff and he knew who he could overbet for value.
When you are able to really use the art of betting to get the outcome you want (be it a fold in a big pot or a huge passive on a big hand) then you hit the level of winrate that most only dream of or even claim is impossible.
It's takes a good feel for your opponents and their perception of you as a player, but this is by far the best advice I have every received and I aim everyday to improve my ability to apply it in my own game
Learning process in poker: In the first stage, you don’t understand the concepts. In the second stage, you understand what you are doing wrong, but you don’t know how to improve. In the third stage, you learn how to improve at these concepts, but they feel difficult to apply. In the final stage, these concepts become automatic,you can employ them without any conscious effort; they’re as automatic as breathing.
I learned from many experienced players and from tutorials of playing poker to never play the same style for all game with same players, play slow, don't be agressive and give all-ins every time, and often call or check, even if you have a big hand on the flop, when the opponent plays aggresive. You can get him at the river.
But even if you play like a pro, you have to have luck
I know some colleagues who are at high levels, and also from what I heard from star players, is to take the time to think well about everything, the rival, the table, all the factors, if you are not very observant or not so attentive you will lose valuable information, greetings
