Poker can be difficult at times. Instead of beating your head against the wall, read on about the three simple tips on how to improve your game! Starting the game can be easy; the actual play can be a different story.
It is okay to feel like you are having trouble with your progress as a poker player. A lot of people have been in the same spot as you. Our writers have been there. Today, we will be sharing some of its hard won wisdom through the years of practical experience. Here are a few tips to get you started on your path to improvement:
Play More Poker
Yes, we know it sounds like a crack tip. However, it is one of the best tips that we wish someone shared with us when we were all struggling with our poker games. When you feel like you are struggling, do not stop playing poker.
We’re not going to lie—it can be quite tempting to do so. It can feel super frustrating and progress may not be swift in coming. What is important to remember is that there is so much to gain if you keep playing. When you keep playing poker, you get to see where you struggle.
Are you not pulling the hands you need? Are you failing at your bluffs? Do the others always see through you? These are things you cannot realize if you stop playing. When you play more, it should be important to take careful note of any mistakes that you spot.
Make Poker Friends
Remember how when you were in school, it was often easier to tackle assignments with buddies? The same still applies to poker. When you create a circle of friends that you can count on, they can help keep an eye on what you seem to be having trouble with.
There are a lot of ways to make poker friends. You can get in touch with people you play with. Or if that is a tad awkward with you, hit up forum websites. There are a LOT of resources that you can use which are written and made by other people who carry the same love of poker as you do.
Discover Poker Blogs
Other than your friendly bunch of Rotten Gods, there are other poker blogs that you can utilize to get in-depth tips on how to improve your game. Not all poker blogs are the same. There are those that take a clinical—almost scientific—approach to poker.
We try to stick to humor and the more human part of poker—after all, we want a more organic feel to our discussions. Find other poker blogs that approach the topic of poker in a way that you are okay with.
These may not feel like they will do much about improving your game but that is what we also thought back then. We gave it a go and saw an eventual and massive improvement to our playing. Don’t give up, friend!
