Do you keep asking yourself why would you call pre-flop a middle-strong starting hand
while you keep folding better hands?
Why if you drop your sandwitch on the floor you will just throw it away, but you wont go and buy a new one.The chance that you still want a sandwitch is enormous you have just dropped yours ?!
Everything hides in the human brain the fact you dropped the sandwitch drives you silently mad
you want to buy a new one but you wont cause the LAST DAMN ONE FELT ON THE FLOOR!
That happens in our dear poker world and we do the same crazy stuff that we will realise we did later on.
The human brain is programmed to memorize every good and bad feeling the cause of it.
Example: You are holding J5 and you are calling a hand that brings you J55 on the flop someone with A5 goes all in you call him and win a massive pot.
Without you realising your brain memorize the feeling of statisfaction you get from the J5.
On entirely diffrent hand you will be ready to call/bet/raise more then you should with this hand
and probly lose.
In order to be a successful poker player you need to take control over your mind and emotions.
Now dont lie to me and confess you did such things more then once.Oh yea you did.
Why when we are lossing our game is getting worse?
We are suppose to be more cautious , but oh no we arent we are mostly getting loose aggresive after a bad beat.
Take control over your mind !!!
Turn off the emotions !!!
Dont blame anything but, yourself !!!
Everyone feel like a great poker player always putting the blame over anything but himself.
The software , his luck , other players joker play outs , even the fly that keeps bumping in the window. Well my friend its all you!
Your job is to maintain a stable strategy , a purpose , an winning attitude!
Next time you are about to make a donk call just cause you feel almighty , just fold it.
This is a sport of the mind , not a bingo :)
And when you manage that ....
