To play winning poker, you must begin by believing in the power of one’s casino game:

Church of Holdem Psalm #2:

Succeeding poker often begins having a succeeding attitude.

Surely there is far more to poker techniques than waking up on the proper side of the bed and smiling as you wager on? Well, of course there is. Duh! But to be able to realize what I’m talking about, you initial must know what you’re up against in the globe of Net poker.

Your average online Hold em player is a loser. (In the traditional, "losing money", instead of slang, "person you do not need to associate with", sense of the word.) He or she will consistently bet on poker, because it’s fun. Occasionally, that person will win a little. Incredibly rarely, they may win a chunk.

Most of the time, they’ll lose. Let’s say they shed $50 on average. Multiply that man or woman by various million, and you understand how optimistic, solid gamblers make their living betting winning poker online.

When you ask these dropping players what they’re accomplishing wrong, they are going to answer: "I’m just unlucky." Or, "Everybody knows that Web poker is fixed." It has in no way occured to them to research how to win at poker for themselves. Poker methods are a foreign language.

Look deep inside these unfortunates and you can locate a war between desire and expertise. Hope is acquiring its butt kicked by experience. Oh boy, and how. One day, they are going to wake up and say either: "Screw this, I am going to waste my money accomplishing some thing else," or, "Screw this, I need to locate out the way to wager on greater poker."

They may learn the truth about poker. It is impossible to stop being a loser unless you think like a winner.

You must convince yourself that you are a winner. (Proof helps! You need concrete evidence of past performance too. Just wishing to be much better is no very good at all on its own.) Set oneself straightforward, easily achievable targets, hit them and then stop for the day.

Why stop? Because you’ll have ended on a great note and so will uncover it a lot easier to start in a favorable frame of mind tomorrow. Had a dropping session? Never mind. It occurs to everyone! Put it out of your thoughts and commence afresh tomorrow with (you guessed it) a succeeding mindset.

Once that you are used to beginning having a succeeding attitude, you’ll come across on your own winning a entire lot more. Just do not forget to thank me for it when you do!

Here ends the lesson.
