GENERAL POKER CONCEPTS

INTRODUCTION

Topics in this section range widely. You will notice, however, that several expose illusions which fool many a player. The player least likely to be fooled are lose who have studied the poker casino concept game. Some good “instinct” players are surprisingly susceptible to illusions about luck, who the best players are, and the like.

Though some illusions of these sorts are not too harmful, failing to see through others will definitely affect how you play. Your earnings will suffer. Strive to be the player of clear, analytical vision, untouched by the illusions into which hordes of players futilely invest so much energy. Other essays here may help broaden the way you think about poker. I hope that after reading this section, readers who have not thought about it before will be sensitive to issues involved in game preservation. Others may come to see short-handed play in a new, more favorable light.

My intent with the essays on how I learned poker is to offer an array of ideas from my own experience which interested readers can draw upon to structure how they work on their game. Finally, though game selection is of paramount importance to winning players, to make good money in poker tournament you must learn to beat games that are a little tougher than those found in the small limits. As simple as this idea is, some portion of players fails to appreciate it. I provide an essay here for those optimists who hope to get rich playing only in “no hold’em poker game.
