How to break a losing streak

Benjamin Franklin once famously said, “In this world, nothing can be said to be certain except death and taxes.” However, if he’d been a poker enthusiast, he might’ve added ‘losing at cards’ as a third certainty. No matter what tips and tricks we teach you, it’s inevitable that you’re going to lose at some point. Sometimes, you might even get caught in a losing streak – and those can be tough to get out of. Here are a few ways you can pull yourself out of a losing streak.

Take a break

It’s the simplest and most straightforward option, and one that has nothing to do with poker – but maybe you just need a break. Walk away from the table, or away from the computer, or put your phone away for a few minutes, and just do something else. You will get better the more youplay poker, obviously, but there’s value in just stepping back every now and then as well. A short break to refresh your mind and recharge your batteries may be all you need to break your shackles and start winning again.

Look for patterns

One of the ways you can spend your time during that break is thinking about how you’ve played during the losing streak. It’s often hard to spot patterns while you’re still involved in an online poker game – and no wonder, there’s a lot going on! – but that could be the key to why you’re losing. Maybe you’ve just been too laser-focused on a particular style of play and it isn’t working out for you, or maybe one or two of your opponents seem to have a good read on you and are correctly predicting your moves more often than not – either way, you’ve got to break the patterns to break the jinx.

Walk away

“The only winning move is not to play.” That’s the central concept behind the famous 1983 movie WarGames, but it can apply to poker too. Sometimes, you’re just too mentally exhausted or burnt out to turn things around, and it’s up to you to realize when you’ve crossed this point of no return. When you do, it’s in your best interests to just call it a day. Look, you can come back in an hour, or two hours, or the next day – poker isn’t going anywhere, you’ll have your chance to play!

Losing’s inevitable in poker, but the trick is in how quickly you can turn it around and start winning again. To help you out with that, why not read our tips onhow to forge a winning habit?
