If you ever wondered why the same online poker players are always growing their bankroll and you are struggling to barely stay a float, it all comes down to the way they approach the game. What you see as a game or a place where you can just blow off a little steam, the best players focus on the game like it was a business and will not settle for anything except winning.
Here are a few traits that you should develop that will help you to start playing better online poker.
The best online poker players make it very hard for you to figure out what they are going to do in any situation. They mix up the speed that they play, they mix up what they do in certain situations, and they are always looking for ways to keep you guessing. Chances are good you are too comfortable playing at home and you simply raise the same hands, check the same hands, and fold in the same situations. Is it no wonder you keep getting wiped out?
The best online poker players will not use the chat feature to give you an ounce of information about them or their play. The difference between them and you, you think you are getting sympathy from the rest of the table when you whine about the bad beats you keep experiencing. Keep on telling the table about your poor starting hands and you will only get more of the same in the way they bully you off pots.
The best players only show their cards when they have to, usually when they are raking all your chips. They never flash their hole cards.
Now that you see how you differ from the best online poker players, start mimicking their actions to see similar results.
