Hello everybody!

This post is for constantly losing players. Have you tried to understand your losses, understand the reason consciously, without emotions? Write your opinion. Please don't talk about BADBEATS and tweaks.

I can say that I am lazy and slow to learn the game, impatient and overreact if my good cards are overplayed, this leads to the fact that I start playing poorly at the other tables and eventually get thrown out everywhere.
Share your opinion about yourself, thank you.:)

I let emotions get to me and I take too many chances. I pick the worst times to bluff.

Most players are lazy. They do not want to improve. Me too:)

I am just crap. Only play cash, never payed to play a tourney or a sitngo

But as said before I also am lazy but trying to learn to play cash properly now.

So there may be hope yet :)

The problem in my poker failures is bluffing and risk.When I pull myself together and play carefully, then I’m just unlucky.Poker is such a thing where there are many factors.One wrong move and all your efforts end in a waste of money and time.

Getting too optimistic about good cards and considering it a "sure win", I think was the biggest issue for me to overcome. I recognize good cards but still consider there's a chance it may not bring in the pot.

My fatal weakness is probably playing too tight when close to the bubble and the blinds start eating my stack. Then all of a sudden I get a prime hand with which I shove and lose to rags !
You made it kind of hard asking us not to talk about bad beats because I have to say that they play a huge role in a losing career. In mine at least...

Previously, I was also losing money, mainly because I lacked patience. But over the past few months, I have become more disciplined and patient, and thanks to this, my results have improved significantly.

I think my laziness is the biggest problem. It prevents me from improving my poker game skills. I already have a plan to move to a higher level, i'm just lazy to start :(

I let the emotions affect me too much and with that I took the risk. I choose the worst moments to bluff since I don't know how to choose them

I often play too aggressively, even though I know it's not right

Lack of experience and bad reading of the game. Lack of knowledge and understanding of how to play in specific situations. And for new players it's hard to control emotions they want play agressive and go All-in with all hands they have. In poker like in betting - no easy money, u need work a lot and grow if u want win

That's what I think

Like every game, you win and lose, if we take into account that in 1 tournament 17% more or less of the entrants are awarded, there will always be more losers than winners, but hey, I have had good streaks and others have not So much, I'm still going to keep trying because it's a game that I really like, if I win better, and if I lose I'll keep trying

Bad players

Hello, well I think that if you start by saying not to talk about bad beats and that you get carried away by your emotions, the reason why you lose is quite clear, if you study and practice and make the best decisions each time, you will lose only when do bad reading of the rival or have bad beats, there is not much science, bad players lose and good players win in the long term

In poker it is easier to lose than to win, but if you have good banking skills, in the long run you can win money in poker.

A tournament has only 15~20% ITM, Cash game has 3~5% fee for every hand. One want win from poker must has better skill than other. :deal:

Many players lose due to the fact that they play at a large number of tables or are distracted during the game by watching a video or something else !!! Try to play only at one table, but only thoughtfully, not being distracted by anything !!!

For one thing, games got a lot harder than say 10-15 years ago . Way too many good players nowadays. My problem is I have 3 or 4 winning sessions out of 10 and thats not enough to show profit in a long term
