Welcome mobsters, if you are reading this blog for the very first time, I thank you for your initial interest. I think that if you give it a little time, you will find something that will peak your interest.
I am a semi-pro poker player and an author. I am currently working on several projects for publication, and will be discussing them on occasion in this blog. If you are a fan then I warn you, from time to time there will be spoiler book ideas discussed.
Section 1: Poker Tips & Concepts
The best poker players in the world all still have losing sessions. If you expect to win every time you play then you are naïve. Your goal should be to play the best poker you can in every session. If you do then winning will take care of itself as your overall game improves.
Many players make the mistake of judging their ability to play poker after each session. You should simply try to make the best possible play each time. The better you overall decisions become the better your results will be. Think long term not short term.
Avoiding tilt should also be very high on every player's poker strategy list. Our opponents will use our emotions against us if they can, but only if we let them. Over emotional play results in poor decisions, and that will make us lose money. Going on tilt can happen to anyone, and sometimes the only cure is a break from the game. We must always remember there will be another table to plat at in an hour or two, or if a break is really needed, the games will be there tomorrow too.
We have all been there when idiots just keep playing every hand and keep sucking out win after win with unbelievable hold cards. Well I am writing this section while I am on total and complete TILT. There is no question I am beyond upset. The cheese has totally slipped off the cracker and the dog licked it then walked away.
Until next time
Section 2: "Ronin's Bankroll Management Challenge"
Well this section is going to be familiar to the forum regulars as I have been running this section for awhile in the forums, It is about the single most important skill a poker player must have in their arsenal in order to be a successful winning player.
Bankroll Management has been estimated to be the single most neglected poker skill by almost 95% of all players. Countless books have been written on the subject, and yet most players most often just ignore the rules of proper bankroll management.
I too fall into this trap a lot of times.
This section is intended to show how proper bankroll management can ensure that and good poker player who approaches his bankroll and poker play from a solid and disciplined position can succeed.
It also is intended to help me to remain focus and discipline in my own bankroll quest to succeed.
The next 60 day bankroll challenge will begin March 1st, 2015.
