In the end, the good player often defeats professional players and cheater with an exceptional strategical game.
Poker is not just a card game played by many, but a game that involves deeper analysis and perception not just on the game itself, but the players in it.
It is known that poker is merciless, and a kind of game that has players who could mentally slice their opponents with sharp, analytical minds if the unsuspecting amateur had only known better
One should focus on areas that give maximum advantages. Say, in a game where weak players are involved, you should concentrate more on your opponents’ mode of play.
In a game with unbeatables, focus more on your skill with less manipulating because this can only give room for your opponents to recognize your hand and intentions. Better yet, steer clear your self from these types of players.
It is also important that a player should take deep breaths to eliminate tension that is slowly building in you. A thoroughly calm and relaxed player makes him more productive and able to get money from opponents.
Moreover, physical fitness counts, too – for it can be a prime contribution not only to the player’s stamina, but also to his ability to focus and apply much-needed concepts of poker.
The use of hypnotic gestures and whispered chants to train and set players to react accordingly – giving in to commands, for example – to fold, bet, or raise.
One can always determine strong hands from deeper positions than he can realize. Not that serious if nobody opens after determining a strong hand since opening versus non bettors would usually end up in a small pot with minimal, if there are callers; and they would otherwise be callers who weren’t that strong.
The benefits of winning huge pots by check raising are stronger than the risks of ending up to passed-out, smaller pots. However, it is also helpful to avoid strong hands, especially under betting hands.
Opponents with good hands tend to be more aware. Players who abruptly start governing the game normally have openers, at least.
Somber players will seldom open their cards. And there are those who are tense all in all, but otherwise alert at aiming for their opponents’ weaknesses or the pot itself will usually open.
Finally, by learning to determine other players’ hands with accuracy, the card odds become less priority as the constant bluffing and manipulation of these opponents become more important, and much easier to handle.
