I think it might be interesting to see how good you think you are...

In poker the best player does not always win. This implies that a relatively bad player wins sometimes too. Does this mean that (like drivers) a lot of unskilled players think they are much better than they are?

the best there is- actually i am that good- that there is no level to even say, just the best of the best- now the next question would be why i am not so famous like the ivey's, isildur's etc.- and the answer is simple! i am hiding my skill level i play at micro stakes (and lose there) just because it's not the time yet to unleash my talent to the world Big Smile

This thread pretty much seems to be a tricky question, as we all know poker is a game in which you need to have tons of motivation and self confidence.

I think it's important to consider yourself a good player if you are ever trying to improve your game Blink

I'd like to think that will all the time I've put in that I'm at least slightly above average, although I haven't used any tracking software so I'm not really sure exactly how I stack up. That's something I've been meaning to do though.

I honestly think i proven to myself so far that i'm pretty decent player. But my bankroll management is pretty non-existant at this point. Don't feel too bad about it tho as i see poker as my hobby. Blink

I'm always learning from my mistakes, but have had good days in the SnG's. If I could play consistant it would definitely help my overall game.
And, maybe when I think I'm playing well it could be that everyone else is just playing worse then me.

I'm in the bottom 40% at the moment - better at MTT than SNG's although I can hold my own at 10c/25c tables. When I move up levels to 25c/50c tables always do my bollocks.

I am learning and figure over the next 2 years to be able to play profitably at 50c/1.00 level which means I should be able to make a living. Earn myself enough to enter some live tournaments, possibly win some.

My dream is to be able to play at WSOP, not sure how I would do, not sure which event - Razz event would be good.

Anyway it does not matter how good I am it does depend on the standard of thr player you are playing - no good playing intricate plays against some idiots who will go all in with any Ace rag !!

GL to you all and remember you heard it here first !!!

I guess to correctly "read" the poll, one should take into account that everyone tends to evaluate himself higher than it should. On that note..i think I'm on the 50% line Tongue
Although this is also a psychological fact, I think/and numbers tend to agree with me...that I do fairly better at the 10-20$ buyins than in the 5$ or less mtts. I think it is because I give people too much credit at the microbuyins and supraevaluate their plays (or smth like that). Has anyone experienced anything like this? Any thoughts on the matter ?

I know i am not a good player. Some days ago, a mobster friend here (dont want to write his user wrong, that's why i dont say who was he) explained a way to play in poker as scared poker, and, although not always, i know sometimes i play that way. We always try to call it other names but, in conclusion, we know what we are doing.

I highly recommend studying the mathematics involved in poker. Not only the odds; try to understand the ICM and EV (expected value) .. also pay attention to the ranges of opponents and play by those and do not try to them on specific hands..thus the concept of playing with scared money (to which Fakiry is reffering) will diminish and will not affect your game as much.
