Since last week, I received a positive feedback from the life experiences of blackjack, I thought I’d share some of the lessons I learned from poker as well. Background again, feel free to skip the background story, if you just want to read a part of the curriculum. I only include this for the curious. I first learned to play poker when I was 18 years old, just play the nickel dime quarter of the game, from school friends. I am a fairly weak player back then, mostly using too many loose-aggressive style and bluff manner. But I really like the game, usually played one week at least once. Of course, this is just the home games, I mainly play poker casino did not find those deviant form. My favorite game is called 3-5-7. I only played for fun at this time, many years later, I never put the game seriously. When I was 21 years old, lives in Los Angeles, some friends and I made a few trips Commerce Casino casino. I played seven more – stud and Texas Hold’em a little bit of time.
I played maybe five times total in the Ministry of Commerce. This is from my home an hour drive, so it is not convenient enough to bother, because I’m just playing the fun of it. From 24 to 33 years old, I almost do not play poker at all, maybe once a year average.
January 2004, my family and I moved to Las Vegas. Poker in Las Vegas ( and the recent surge in popularity ) availability means that you can always find a game. Las Vegas Strip is only a 20-minute drive from my house away, and downtown Las Vegas is 15 minutes away.
When I first moved here, I think it would be fun to play poker more often, because I’ve always liked a good game. I have no intention of making it a career, but I do not have any interest in it losing money.
So that I can have fun and win some money at the same time. Facts have proved that I was right. Based on recommendations from others, I picked up a few books on the subject.
I followed Jones’ suggestion is very close, and they work very well. I only play cheapest limitations, such as the $ 1-3 and $ 2-6 or $ 2-4 spread game structured game.
I personally like the Excalibur poker room campy / friendly ( and smokeless ) atmosphere, so that’s what I usually play. This is a very winning, low- pressure game, if you are halfway decent, especially when the place is full of tourists who mostly have fun and free drinks on a Friday or Saturday night. I know the names of most of the dealers are very friendly.
I just love the fun and challenge of the game. I’ve always liked to compete. On average, I play a few times a month, usually on weekends.
Last year I came out positive, with each section to win about 70 % of the rate of $ 2.27 per hour and the positive rate (excluding tips ).
I only play in person, not online, because I like to chat with other players and get to know interesting people from all over the world. So far, the rules of poker is a much tougher game than master blackjack, because your decision depends on the actions of other players, not only in the theater, and the probability of pre-determined. Poker also requires more patience than the glass in my opinion.
In blackjack poker observed most of my observations from watching other players play their hands in poker, I learned the most by watching their own, partly because of the nature of the game ( I can not see every other people decide to do, I can Blackjack ). Here are some comments from me playing poker over the years to make : 1.
Simply by observing myself, look at my own talk, like seeing my hands shake when I looked down on the A button pocket, I learned to find other players who also told. In low-limit games, almost any time you see a player’s hands were shaking as they attempt to put their bets, which means they have a monster hand. I’ve thrown a lot of solid hands after reading this story, so far, every time it was the right decision.
This is how to apply to life itself? If you know your behavior in the face of certain emotional state, you can see the information obtained in the behavior of others ( can be very useful in some cases ). For instance, if I look at someone else to do lectures, I can observe my behavior, I’m really bored or very interested. Then, when I was a speech, I can see the reaction of the audience.
If you are a salesperson, how you behave when you look good / bad presentation given by others? If you are a manager, how do you behave when someone tries something entrusted to you, you’re not going to do it? If you are married, how do you listen to when you’re not really the behavior of your spouse? Observe how your own behavior to reflect different internal states, and then observe these behaviors to obtain information in others. You might be surprised to find that the physiological response resulting emotional state is very similar from person to person.
You can learn a lot about yourself by learning other people. # This is the opposite one. By observing the behavior of others Poker, and then see what kind of hand they have, I can connect to their own behavior information.
Many poker players do that. No big cry.
So if you see someone moving away from the table when they have a monster hand, make sure you do not look too far, you’ve got a monster. You can also put this concept a step further and use it more active.
It is used to feed false information to the person they are sneaky physiological responses of itself. Just make sure you are not too obvious, right, or other players will catch you. I think it works best because it changed their rivals intuitive feel subconscious signals.
By learning about other people, you can consciously respond to the performance of a certain behavior that you want to activate. Of course, this sounds manipulative, it is.
TV commercials use this to manipulate all the time. They know all about the various emotional states, and they use them to try to manipulate your emotions. This is one reason so many ads appear in the logical silly, but they can still be effective if they include bypassing your mind and push their message to your subconscious correct signal.
People exhibit tells the story of the emotional state of the advertisers want you to be able to relate to their products or services. However, these signals are often independent of the product itself.
How many beer ads displayed behavior stupid drunk people? 3. Of both wisdom and intuition to make the right decisions to provide input.
Sometimes they agree, sometimes they do not. In life, however, you usually higher than the check, bet, call, raise, or fold more choices.
When my logic and intuition does not seem to agree, I try to step back and look at the situation from another angle. In the past I tend to favor my logic, only to find that my intuition was right.
Now I know that the information provided by the two inputs, but they do not complete the data to take action. In poker you can have limited how much data is being collected. But life provides additional opportunities for the peak in cards.
You can in the new information to enhance your logic and intuition of data being processed. You can pre- action, such as clarity. You can even dive with the best decisions you like to see the next card, and afterwards adjust course.
Not a fish. “Fish ” is a bad poker player who is basically not give up their money.
And the longer they play, the more they lose. Is not life the same? If you play a bad long enough, eventually you lose.
Good players learn the rules of the game and build their skills. Destroy them, or they will bring them down negative habits. 5.
In poker, you can expect that once again the bad beat. Eventually you will need a heartbreaking case, when someone draws very unlikely to beat runner- runner cards you do hands.
You can play perfectly and still lose. There is no security in the card. The only real security lies in knowing you did your best.
6. No one will hand you kicked out of the game of life.
It is in the past, and there is nothing you can do, and now nothing. Focus on the present. There is another hand to play.
Do not play J8S UTG no matter how attractive it looks, how sure you are to achieve a multi -way pot. The lesson here is that life as an exercise for the reader. If you’re a poker player myself, I ask you, by posting comments to share their life experiences from the game.
