Don’t play all hands but learn the art of folding. Probably this is the most common mistake of less experienced players or those who do not even have the slightest idea of how to play.
Don’t Drink Too Much
It is undeniable, whether you are in a gclub casino, in a club or at home to play poker with friends, a good glass next to the chips fits perfectly. In the series, to understand how to play poker, you must also learn to drink something. Obviously, it’s not a problem to be a teetotaler; even a nice glass of soft drink or an energy drink can make a good impression next to a deck of cards.
In fact, even just a shot is perfect, and so is that moment when, a little to cut the tension (yours) and increase the suspense (of the opponents), you take a few seconds to pause to bring your cocktail to your mouth or your beer; nothing to say about it. The problem, however, comes when the glasses begin to multiply, the mind relaxes, and the chips begin to go away at an excessive rate. And then, while the alcohol rises, you forget how to play poker and even that you are sitting at a game table.
In short, even if poker is not exactly a game to play while sipping peach juice, what we recommend you to do is to pay attention to the amount of alcohol you drink: if two glasses can make you feel more relaxed. And ready to play, you may find yourself playing too loose within a few minutes and unable to reflect as you should on betting and hand rankings. The same is also true in the case of soft drinks or energy drinks. In fact, too many sugars could risk making you unnecessarily excited and distracted, with the result that instead of concentrating your energies on the game, you will be very forgetful.
Bluffing Just To Bluff Is Not Going To Do You Any Good
Many beginners think that bluffing is a fundamental part of poker even if, in reality, they cannot understand why. Others believe that to know how to play poker. One must first learn how to bluff and win poker money. There are no precise rules for successful bluffing, and it is not true that to play poker, you must learn to bluff even if there are players who cannot feel satisfied if they do not win at least once thanks to a crafty bluff.
Sure, the pleasure of winning without the most substantial hand is great but beware of the risks and tries to understand your opponents before doing anything. In short, if someone continues to always go to the showdown, it is certainly not by continuing to rise indefinitely that you will convince him to let you win the hand. Better not to bluff than to do it “just for”. Bluffing is an art, and we advise you to learn how to do it well, to be able to get the most benefit possible and be able to win.
