How Much Time Do You Spend on Improving Your Poker Game?

Posted on 11 November 2020 by "T".

Like any hobby or pastime, you need to spend time researching and studying to enhance your knowledge. Poker is no different in this respect. It's the most complex of all popular gambling games and takes the widest array of skills to become expert. Online cash tables are filled with players who spend no time on improving. They just play without much though. If you want to have the upper hand, you need to devote some time to educating yourself on more advanced poker concepts. The time and money you spend should be worth it once you are implementing new techniques and strategies. Be careful though, there is a lot poker content online but a lot of it is outdated, obsolete or just wrong. Stick to the more fresh and relevant websites for the best material.

Methods of Improving Your Game

There's lots of way to get better at poker. You can read books, listen to podcasts or discuss strategy with fellow poker players. Most professionals devote a block of time each week to looking back at key hands. Provided you have poker tracking software, you can review hands you've played in the previous week. This is a great way to review and analyse what you did well and more importantly, what you did wrong, so you can seek solutions and avoid making similar mistakes in the future. This method of studying is one of the most effective because it's personal to you. You're seeing your own hands being played out and when watching it over, you sometimes see things more clearly than when you're in the heat of a hand.


Take A Poker Course

Did you know that you can study poker courses? These are a very practical way of becoming proficient in specific areas of poker. Most poker courses are flexible and can be taken at your own pace and leisure. As long as you don't mind reading lots of content, they are a cost-effective way to take your game up a level. The cost of poker courses varies but the price of a course is usually far outweighed by the potential earnings you can receive as a result. You can usually retain the course material so you can always refer back. BankrollMob has discount codes you can use with Texas Hold'em Questions, a poker training website that offers specialised poker courses.

How Many Hours A Week Studying?

There's no right or wrong answer when it comes to studying poker strategy. Generally, the more time you invest, the better you will get. Although, you should always be playing more than you study. Take small steps at first. If you study 2 hours a week, try increasing to 3. If you don't do any study, set 1 hour a week moving forward. The time you invest in studying will be paid back down the line when your win rate is higher. It's essentially an investment in your future earnings. Remember, most winning players are continuously working to improve. If you're doing nothing, you will get overtaken by potentially inferior players. How many hours will you study next week?

I can't improvise anything on the stakes i play, because players pay with any card wants and they won. I prefer to take risks when is necessary and feel more focused on higher stakes. I don't often play big tournaments but sometimes i still qualify.

Sometimes when I have free time I dedicate a lot of time to learn and thus prepare great solid strategies to be a winning player in the game, the time is up to you, it will depend on your day, if you are active with the desire to learn, and also that does your most consistent game to win.

ofcourse that in todays world,where everything is online and especially in this time of corona,people will try to earn money on people that are in home and have lot of time!people who want to play poker will pay to learn fast poker and with that they think they will play on high level and that they will earn money!
before you had books,you played lot of freerolls and we had lot of poker shows on tv and you tube!now you dont have anything and people want to play poker after one day!

I forgot about the course, first I started taking free courses, and if they helped me a lot in the beginning, but if you want to have knowledge and solid strategies that will make you a winning player, you should take courses with pay from a pro player who will help you improve your game.

Players are unpredictable and sometimes they pay with any card because that's what they think. There are times when boredom intervenes and to finish the tournament faster they throw their whole stack. When they win, continue game as if nothing had happened.Then i'm disgusted.

geseco12 what pro will lose his time to learn other players how to play and we all know that they some young players or older who is on the beginning,cant pay him enough for his time,so nobody will spend time,when he can play live or online games and earn much more!there is no chance that you will find pro for something like this!

Improvise with mentality of being focused on the moves of other players and finding out some secrets to use them. It's not that hard and if you implement this idea in your mind... can have something extra at end of a every month.

when i start playing i didnt spend nothing. I think for begginers there is enough free material out there to beat the micro stakes. And there are enough discord or skype groups with allot of good advices for free. But if you really want to improve your game i think you must invest at least at software and some coaching sites. At least i do that for know. If i play "serious" stakes someday then will sure must invest in coaching with better players too.

I spend a lot of time to playing freerolls and there i can improvise certain tactics. Even if the players are not very focused and pay, it remains to be seen what software offers. I reached on a few final tables, not too many but i can win some small things to register in more tournaments or to bet.

The preparation time is up to you, but for me, initially in my beginnings it was only a couple of hours, but as I was climbing levels, the challenge is greater, you have to spend almost half a day of training to be solid with the strategies, and always being a winning player, I like to know how I evolved.
 dule-vu21/11/2020 10:23:33 GMT
I am just not so much in poker for last two or three years!sometimes I play it,ofcourse I read news and everything about it,but I am more on casino games,I spend lot of hourse on slots!so cant say that I will improve my poker game,but what I know till today its enough for online play!probably will play some tournaments that we will have on christmas calendar!

I want to improvise my game with some friends, who will be at my house and make good decisions in some online games. When each of us has some good strengths, we learn from each other. You can't become a good player if don't take a few lessons from the internet, TV, live poker or friends. Good luck, guys.

I really like poker, since I met it in an advertisement I liked it and from there I did not stop playing it. Well at first I was not very interested in studying I thought it was just a matter of luck, but as I climbed I realized that no, study and perseverance is the key to winning and being competent, it is a clearly popular game for its pure adrenaline that there are.

I played poker to earn some extra money, but it's not as easy as it sounds. Poker rooms offer hands in different ways, because these cards are calculated and entered into software according to their choices ... and that's why turn and river brought dangerous hands. I don't want to improvise too much, because losing my stack very fast...
 geseco1207/12/2020 23:41:42 GMT
learning poker is not easy it takes a long time to shape strategies and raise your levels, in my case I dedicate 6 hours a day to study poker also playing 2 more hours, I like to play at night, I think there is more concentration in the game And that's where it helps you make big decisions.

I learned a little when i played several free games and after that i saw professional players on TV or internet. When i wanted to learn strategy, i got bored because she couldn't make it to poker tables. The main culprits were software that almost always beat me in turn/river, or players who paid with a single pair... even the whole stack after river. After that i gave up to learn strategy.
