Texas Holdem poker

Wondering how to become one of the top poker players? Your search ends here! This post will help you understand the importance of daily habits in becoming a master poker player.

The first step to becoming a good player is to accept that it isn’t that easy. Just like any other aspect of life, it takes a lot of efforts and constant practice to be able to make poker your profession. Here are a few things that you need to keep in mind if you want to become a master in Texas Holdem poker.

1. Putting in a few poker hands every day

Just like everything in life, the phrase ‘practice makes a man perfect’ stands true even in poker. One thing that is essential to be successful is to ensure that you play a few poker hands every day. Thanks to the availability of online card games, practising poker and playing every day from anywhere you want is a possibility. So, to become a good poker player, it is important to play a minimum number of hands every day. This is what most master players swear by!

2. The spacing effect

Another daily habit that can help you master poker in a short period of time is reviewing your previous games. A poker rule of thumb is to review at least the top 5 games of the previous day and try and look at all the tough spots and find ways to play better. This is called the spacing effect and is generally an effective way to learn anything new! We can see this being effective in learning a language too. Rather than memorizing a bunch of stuff, learning specific words and practising them as in a conversation helps get a grip of a language quickly and more effectively. It is the same with poker as just playing the game isn’t enough. You also have to review your game and see if it can be played in a better manner and then try to implement the improved strategy when playing again.

3. Discussing your game with experts

The online poker game being a player vs player game, most players don’t generally try to engage with their opponents. But just like in any other aspect of life getting an outside perspective on our performance and strategies can do wonders for the game. As much as self-review and self-criticism are essential, getting an expert option can be more valuable. But, how to find people who are expert enough and interested enough to engage with other players and provide feedback?

In this age of the internet, there are many forums and platforms that are totally dedicated to poker. You can take advantage of such platforms to post about a few of your top games and invite positive criticism and ideas. The best way is to select a few of your good poker hands, post them onto the forum without disclosing the result of the game and asking for feedback. This will trigger a discussion and you might be able to get some valuable feedback, information and new ideas on how to get better.

Another way top poker players try to better their game is by creating poker strategy discussion groups with their peers. Try to contact a few successful poker players and see if they are interested in interacting with you online or offline (if possible). There are a number of social media platforms like Twitter and Facebook where poker players are active. So you can use these channels to connect with them and see if they are interested in helping you out.

4. Learning new information every day

The beauty of poker is that it is dynamic. This means that there is vast information available in various formats and you can really profit from learning something new about poker every day. There are numerous resources, especially online like training videos and books which are written by experts on new and effective strategies that can be useful the next time you play. So, spend a couple of hours every day on watching training videos or reading new information or strategies, learn the information thoroughly and try to use the strategies or information the next time you play.

Thus, these are a few things that successful players do every day to ensure that they are always at the top of their game!
