We’re back with another Poker Confidential! Today, we’re talking about how you can achieve maximum consistency when playing poker online in India. Wait, consistency? How can you be consistent in a game that involves random card draws? Well, stick around and you’ll find out!
Go with the flow
When you’re playing poker for real money, you’ll often win a few hands and then be tempted to call it a day and be satisfied that you’ve made a small profit. That’s not always the best thing to do, however – although the true randomness of poker means that it fundamentally cannot be controlled, you can be having a ‘good day’. That is, there are some days when you’re just at the top of your game, able to make calculations and read your opponents better than you normally do – and you have to learn to make the most of those days when they show up! Of course, the flip side to that is…
Realize when it’s not your day
The opposite of the above situation can also be true – some days, you just can’t get a decent hand together and, when you do, somebody has a better one! In times like those, you’ve got to realize when to get out and stop throwing good money after bad. This is a mistake many online poker players in India make, they stick it out despite knowing that they’re not at their best and convinced that they’ll be able to turn it around. Sometimes, that’s true but you’ve got to know when it likely isn’t.
Always have a goal
Always enter a game of poker knowing exactly what you want out of it. Do you want to win, or be in the top 3 at the end? Or maybe you’ll be satisfied with a high-enough place so that you get paid. Heck, some days you won’t even care where you end up as long as you have a good game. If you go into a game of online poker with a clear goal in mind, that will help you achieve it.
Know your opponents
Online poker players in India do sometimes neglect to pay attention to their opponents over time. Reading your opponents can be the difference between putting together an impressive winning streak or sinking to defeat after defeat before sadly cashing out. Take note of what the other players typically do in a given situation, and you’ll be better prepared to take them on in later rounds.
Take the long view
This is by far the most important point – don’t lose heart if you lose a few hands. When you’re playing poker for real money, you need to take a long-term point of view. Players who anxiously check their stack after every hand or worry about their bankroll aren’t being fully focused on the actual game, and are more likely to continue losing. Just shrug it off, and go into the next round knowing that you’ll be on the winning side soon enough!
