Some Other Obstacles Of Poker
Imbalance between theory and play:
When you start to play in a professional way usually carries a “mental cocoa” important.
There are people who study almost all day, while others, on the other hand, only plays.
We will try to be aware of what happens and set the times as healthy as possible, since at first both are important.
Sit down and objectively value what you think you need most, whether you study or play.
Set a% to each.
If you think you do not need much theory, I’m sorry to say that you need at least one-and-a-half% of your estimate. Leave the ego off the tables.
If you think that you need a lot of theory, give less time to theory and something more to practice. You feel insecure.
In excesses are the clues to establish healthy percentages:
If you are between 70/30, 60/40 or 50/50 deals there is no problem.
If you are between 80/20, 90/10 or 100/0 there are problems.
To overcome this obstacle be aware of the following:
If you just want to play or your game percentage is too high, you are leaving a lot of theory to effectively improve your technique. Be realistic, accept that you do not know everything, remember that everyone can learn something and especially listen to those who know more. Keep your ego out.
If you just want to study you may feel insecure and you are generating or dragging some fear. Do not forget that playing will make many mistakes and they will tell you which are the most important parts to work and where to focus the study, Do not miss such a magnificent gift.
Few things are more frustrating and more expensive.
To overcome this obstacle practice concentration. Remember that it is a skill that we all have and that can be improved. Mindfulness is very useful for this.
Do not bring it to the tables! And period. Keep it off or it will create you a pile of limitations, both in life and in poker.
To overcome this obstacle, live the competition as a cooperation in which the other rival is simply teaching you the parts of you that should be strengthened or improved.
