The goal of every poker player is to get to the point that they can make money each time they play. While it is a challenge to win consistently because luck does play into the equation, you can put yourself in a better position to get more good luck rather than flowing down the river in a boat with no oars. Here are a few things you can do to change the outcome at the poker tables online.
Moving Down a Level and Not Up
If you are playing at a no limit table at the online poker room, they you are putting your entire bankroll at risk. If you think that you are bulletproof to a bad beat you will be sadly mistaken. If you have your entire bankroll in play and you get AA with and ace of the flop, you feel invincible. Then the board pairs and you know your boat is the nuts, so you try to keep someone in the pot long enough for them to make some type of hand and bluff at the pot. In your haste, you don't see the board lining up for the four of a kind to slaughter your boat and wipe out your entire bankroll. This happens every single day at the online poker tables.
Keeping Things Close to the Vest
Every person that plays at the online poker table will have aces cracked. Every person that plays at the online poker table will get sucked out on the river. Every person that plays at the online poker table will have their four of a kind beaten by a bigger four of a kind. The key is to not talk about it to the table to the point these layers take notes on you and come after you more.
