I am getting sick of hearing people complain about how hard it is to beat bad poker players. It seems like every time I sit down at a poker table people start discussing how hard it is to beat someone who plays loose passive poker and sees every flop. If you can’t beat someone that is bad, how the hell do you think you can beat someone that isn’t bad? You probably wouldn’t stand a chance against someone who is decent, and I’m sure someone who is great would take your life savings in a few hours.
What is so hard about beating bad players? If you sit down at a table with a sufficient bank roll, play tight aggressive poker, pay attention to how they play their big hands, and focus on making good decisions, you should come out ahead. I’m sure you’ll get outdrawn a few times, maybe even a bunch of times, but solid play should prevail in the long run. If you’re not profitable against people you consider “bad” maybe you’re the one who sucks at poker.
I’m tired of listening to fish complain about getting outdrawn. Bad beat stories aren’t entertaining, they aren’t amazing. Everyone takes bad beats, it’s part of poker. The sooner you learn that, the better. No one wants to hear you complain about your worst bad beat – we’ve all taken one that is just as bad, if not worse. I’ve seen people river straight flushes against quads, I’ve seen people hit one outers, I’ve seen people river the only four left in the deck to make quads – and those are all good players. visitez le site
Just imagine the bad beats I’ve seen bad players deal out.
I have been heads up once and been three handed once, each time I feel like I was in control of the table and dictating the action. If it weren’t for the bad beat tonight, I would have been heads up again and been in a great position to repeat as a winner. Oh well, what can you do? I got my money in with the best hand and that’s all I can ask for.
I will post an article in the next few days regarding my heads up strategy. Maybe if you bug Steve you can get an article on his heads up strategy, he plays a lot of heads up sit and goes.
