Patience is #1 by far. But also knowing when to pull the trigger and not underplaying your hand. There is nor sure fire way to guarantee winning, but giving yourself the best opprotunities when the time arises is key. Some hands its just best to live to see another hand, I have learned to fold AA in a heartbeat when the writing is on the wall.
Merry christmas friend
I get fasted 6 hours before the tournament and if I get hungry like bread and drink some water to keep the thoughts pure and better understand the players' actions during the tournament.:icon_sant
It's very simple.
It becomes necessary to provide comfortable working space, monitor, and configure it so your eyes don't hurt, comfortable chair to not have numb feet and my back did not ache not to fidget on it every five minutes.
While playing poker, all other programs, forums, chats, social networks, only poker should be disabled. Nothing in your room should distract you from poker.
Warn your relatives not to distract you while playing poker.
To prepare in advance a supply of food, taking into account not to run to the bathroom )).
Sometimes I tune in before a tournament. But rarely helps. The mood comes during the tournament. If you manage to collect a lot of chips, then you can build the game from their mass. I often bluff and put pressure on those who have few chips. Gradually, the number of chips grows and you can count on getting into the prizes.
Most online poker players ... we know that when playing tournaments we must prepare mentally to spend hours playing a tournament in which there will possibly be times when we hardly see any action ... So "Patience" It will be our best ally ...!
As many others have said patience is very important .... you should always have a reason for what you do ... as in not let yourself just do something stupid because you have become bored, or more simply just to stay focused on what you are doing ... do I pull this off every time .. not even close ... it is something to be worked on and you should always ask yourself ... what is the reason I am making this play .... boredom may be a reason but it's not a good one, and lack of patience will not serve you well .... as far as what helps you to stay focused, so you can hold onto that patience ?? .... I imagine if every member was asked, most would come up with the answer that works for them, and most of those reasons would be different than for others, so you have to stop and figure that one out first ... so that is the real question there ....at least imo ....
