Default How long to get good?

Im at the point where i can sit down and play. But when i comes to hands i have a tought time remembering what beats what sometimes, just cause im new. Well the question that I have is how long will it take me to get good at poker and whats the best ways about doing it?
Casino History


Does playing in a casino mean to win? Of course not, otherwise the gambling establishments have long turned to the distribution points of money. This never happens on every bet amount is already incorporated a certain percentage of the casino takes as a fee for services.

casino bonus

Among other things, in different games have a casino advantage - if there is no interest charges from the bet, then, the casino gets its "share" in the form of more frequent winning player.

This is known to all, and if the casino has a good reputation, which seeks to preserve, it will never become "tighten up" slots, roulette and other games in the direction of increasing loss of players. This policy works is correct, and only following it in good faith may retain the confidence of visitors.

However, even in the best casino players sometimes are not immune from the frequent defeats. Usually it is a question of luck, and in fact 20 losses in a row - not only signal to fraud on the part of the casino or its employees, but also a sign of a player, that today the star is clearly not inclined to make him rich.

Roulette


If the player has chosen a good casino, well-versed in the rules of the game, and quite balanced bets, but he is unlucky, one way out - to accept, and try to take a chance on another day.

Professionals are taught to extract errors from their failures. So treat to failure in the casino, how to training courses. In this case, you may be, get as much information as you will never, no victory. And the first thing to do if you get a "black bar" - to leave without trying to win. " Most players lose very large sums in trying to win. "

Even after an altered state of consciousness (as in stress, which is the losing, it is precisely this), replacing the normal perception of the world, should be reviewed to happen to you "the bones". Do not need to immediately write to all sites, a casino, where you lose, just dishonest, and you do not advise anyone to play there. Even if true, would require proof of dishonesty institutions, and allegations are fraught with challenges for the player himself.

After a big loss would be particularly effective in a detailed analysis of spending of your finances and identify the weakest link in the strategy. If there is a link - excellent. You have not lost in vain. online casino


And finally - the universal advice: keep your sense of dignity even in Akhova situation, and to make it easier, do not play on the last money. Good luck!

Sadly the truth is in these low limit games you are only as good as your river card.

How good you get is based on how many hands you play. The more hands you play, the better you will get.

Play a lot and you will become a better poker player faster. You can make it even faster by studying good poker strategy books.

That's a good line, but I don't buy it.

Just playing hands isn't going to make you a good player. Learn how to play first by reading the poker books first, I recommend Super System II, play tight and solid. Then see how it goes in some freerolls and work your way into low buy-in SnGs and MTTs. It will take a while to get good but start off playing the right way and not like donk and you become a profitable player from the get go

I wonder how Brunson, Amarillo Slim, etc became great poker players before poker books were published. I'll bet they spent thousands of hours playing poker.

That being said, there are a bunch of poker books available now. I recommend Harrington on Holdem over any other book. Maybe Negraneau's book too.

The fact is you can't become a better player by studying books alone if you don't play much. You can become a better player by playing a lot of poker alone. You must play a lot of poker.

I agree the ideal situation is to read poker books and play. You will become a better player quickly.
