Texas Hold’em-4 Core Skills in Poker
But when you play, you play as if you had the best hand.
“As stated above, poker pros are generally known to play rigorous and aggressive.
Poker pros tend to play MMC SGD strict and aggressive as above.
It’s probably because they perfectly mastered the four core skills of poker.
- Computing ability
A good poker player knows very well about common odds.
The probability of being tripled when holding a pocket pair is about 1/8,
The fact that a person with a flush draw on the flop has about 1/3 the probability of getting flushed, etc.
We know very well about common probabilities.
A good poker player calculates the odds by counting the Outs.
Usually, if you multiply the remaining cards by 2 and add 1, you get rough probability.
For example, in the case of Plush Row, 4 out of 13 are already available.
There are about 9 cards left, so if you do (9*2)+1, there is a probability of about 19%.
Outstanding poker players place their bets by calculating Pot Odds.
There is a 20% chance that the hand will come out,
If your opponent has raised $100 and your stake is over $500,
By investing $100, you are aiming for more than $500.
Call, but fold if stake is less than $500
These computational skills are very basic and essential knowledge.
If you do not understand the concept of Pot Odds properly,
It’s hard to expect to win real money in poker.
- Compensation for risk
Great poker players use their advantages to play fiercely.
Those who simply play poker don’t have the keenness to win, they just want luck to follow.
However, great poker players work hard to win and take advantage of the odds.
Great poker players don’t want luck.
However, I just hope that other people are not lucky.
Great poker players know the nature of the game and play accordingly.
In the limit game, play very strictly, paying attention to losing chips little by little,
Even if you play a little less rigorous in a no limit game
We try to avoid losing all our chips at once.
However, I know when to fold my hand.
Great poker players know when to play and when to stop,
He knows well whether he is currently a bit excited (Tilt) or in a comfortable state with sweetness.
And, great poker players realize their mistakes, learn from them, and keep trying.
- Psychological skills
A good poker player is not self-centered.
When you sit at the table, a great poker player always looks at your opponent and thinks about them.
A good poker player thinks about what his opponent will think,
Try to understand why the other person made that decision.
Great poker players always try to answer the following questions.
-What did the opponent catch?
-What would the other person think I caught?
-Would the other person think I was predicting what he would have caught?
Answering these questions is the first step,
The second step is to adjust these answers.
A good poker player is trying to control the answer to his opponent’s 2nd and 3rd questions.
It uses slow play, fast play, and bluffing.
- Understanding of risks and rewards
A great poker player is always ready for adventure, even if it’s dangerous.
However, it is always limited if the expected value of the reward for the risk probability is large,
Pot odds are a prime example.
A good poker player knows well about the risks to his own assets and life outside of the poker game.
He knows how well he has to play poker with his opponents and how big he is.
A great poker player can play for $10
Even if you have the ability to make $20 with a 52% chance
Because we are well aware of the fact that there is a 48% chance that it will be $0,
You will always play games that fit your scope.
If you are gambling with a greater risk compared to your total assets,
They all become afraid to lose
We know that this inevitably leads to mistakes at the poker table.
