Poker (eng poker hand, using 5 cards, or forcing all opponents to stop participating in the game.
The game is played with fully or partially closed cards. The generalizing elements of all types of poker are combinations and the presence of trade during the game.
Online poker promotes personality decay. In fact, most gambling has a detrimental effect on a person, on his life values, and is often the reason for a person's fall to the very bottom. Because of this, you can hear a lot of negative reviews about poker. Moreover, people unfamiliar with poker often cite stories they know about losses in casinos or slot machines as arguments. These stories were told to them by acquaintances, seen in a TV show, etc. Numerous films about cheats and scammers also influence people's opinions. Club poker has one radical difference from most gambling games and from any game that the casino is ready to offer. It really can be won over a long distance. The game is played against rivals - the same people as you, and not against the casino. It all depends primarily on your skill, and not on luck, as in a game against a gambling establishment. Playing against a casino or slot machines, the player is doomed to lose money. Often such people become addicted and can lose everything. Naturally, this directly decomposes him as a person. The same fate can befall a player in club poker, if he treats him as lightly as a player, for example, at roulette. Such people have nothing to do with real professional players.
Poker rooms are scammers. Obviously, everyone is not a scam. They earn quite a lot of money, receiving a commission from each bank (up to 5%), they also take interest on tournament fees (usually up to 20%). They take this commission honestly and in the rules all players are warned about it. There is absolutely no need for them to behave illegally when they receive stable profits on completely legal grounds. You can also see advertisements for large poker rooms on well-known TV channels. It is known that the TV channel is not responsible for the honesty of the advertiser, but this may be an indirect argument, since this in any case affects the reputation of the TV channel.
RNG is tweaked. RNG is a random number generator. Each poker room, in the description of its program, states that the cards are dealt randomly. RNG each time issues a random card from the currently undiscovered ones. No one can 100% prove or disprove this statement. There are quite a few players who doubt that the cards are dealt randomly. Moreover, a regularity was noted - the weaker the player, the more often he complains about the "generator curvature". People have one peculiarity - they are rarely ready to admit their weakness, especially in a situation where you can come up with an excuse for this. The RNG in this situation acts as a general scapegoat. Every professional player has periods in which he loses several times in a row in situations in which he was the absolute favorite, for example: 85/15%. This is absolutely normal, since professionals play 20-80 thousand hands every month, and such situations are quite likely for long periods. The main thing at such moments is to be able to maintain composure. At the same time, many people lose control, start making a lot of mistakes and blaming them on RNG. In every poker hand, the most important thing for you should not be the result, but the quality of your decision. Take the honesty of the RNG as an axiom. You need this in order to learn to eliminate your own mistakes, instead of attributing them to outside forces. If you are losing at a significant distance, then most likely the reason is the quality of the game. Luck and bad luck on a long distance, everyone gets the same.
With the help of bots, you can win online poker. Recently, you can hear a lot about the capabilities of modern computers and programs. They are certainly very high, but they should not be overestimated. Many people think that it is now possible to write a bot program that, when launched on an opponent's computer, can play much better than a human instead of him. To date, only one program is known that plays by virtue of a decent poker player, but only one-on-one and only in limit poker. In no-limit poker, especially at a table with several opponents, there are too many nuances, a significant part of which is of a psychological nature. A program that can think has not yet been developed, programs can only perform actions according to a certain algorithm. There are no programs that would be able to beat players even at low stakes, not to mention something more serious.
I am losing online poker because there are cheaters. Cheaters in online poker are often called people who are able to somehow see the opponent's cards, or the cards that will fall on the table. Believing in cheaters is akin to believing in "generator curvature." Often, playing with a weak opponent, who is very lucky in a certain situation, inexperienced players accuse him of cheating, he supposedly knew what cards would fall on the table. Among experienced players, such statements are rare. When developing software for large poker rooms, the main criterion for reliability is the fundamental impossibility of cheating. Poker rooms are engaged in serious business that brings them multi-million dollar revenues, so they strive to protect themselves from those things that could affect their reputation.
There are waves of luck. It is very common for inexperienced players to claim that the card is coming in waves. That is, if you start to be lucky, then the luck will continue further, and if you are unlucky, you will not be so lucky. From this they begin to draw strange conclusions that with luck you need to play a lot more hands, and if you are unlucky, you need to stop playing. Indeed, often with bad luck, the player begins to lose simply by a collapse, but this is not due to the fact that he is so unlucky. Just "under the impression" of several unsuccessful hands, the player begins to make multiple mistakes that lead to big losses, which sooner or later pulls him into tilt. If the game is going well, then a positive attitude contributes to further reasonable quality play, and the illusion arises that there is a cascade of luck. Although such waves are indeed possible, they are not in any way regular. There is no such thing as a wave of luck, each time it can be lucky or unlucky with the same probability, regardless of the previous hands. It is very easy to understand this fact, but how it should be perceived can sometimes be difficult, therefore, even among professionals, decisions are often highly dependent on previous hands.
Slot machines with high stakes are more winning. And slot machines with smaller bets are less lucky. The winning amount that is possible in video poker is shown in the table on the machine. The probability of winning is independent of the video poker bet.
In video poker, cards are dropped in a special way, beneficial for online casinos, and not randomly from 52 cards. The falling out of one or another card is subject to the laws of probability. And the probability of getting one card out of a deck of 52 cards is 1 in 52, about 2%.
In video poker, the slot machine prevents players from winning more than a certain number of times. Each round of the game is independent, and the player has the same chance of winning in each subsequent round. For example, if you have made a combination "Royal Flush", then the fall of the same combination in the next round is also likely.
You can't fight rake in card poker. If you play poker in your kitchen, you probably won't have to pay anything from the bank. Every dollar lost by one player will be won by another player. But casinos and poker rooms provide poker attributes, create conditions for playing different types of poker. Obviously, they have to make amends and make some profit from it. Therefore, usually, a certain percentage is withdrawn from each bank in favor of the institution. Or you are charged an hourly fee for a seat. The ability to overcome reiki comes with experience. If all players play approximately the same (it does not matter, equally good or equally bad), the only one who will make a profit is the establishment. If you play significantly better than your opponents, you will be able to overcome rake. Usually tables with high stakes have a lower rake. This simplifies the task. And that's why most professional players play at high limits.
Jack - Ten suited is a very strong hand in Hold'em. At one time, many believed that jack - ten suited - was the most winning starting hand in hold'em. This is not true. Usually it shouldn't be played already with a double preflop raise. And it should usually be folded on a full table from early position.
In a loose card game, play tight, and in a tight, loose. If your opponents rarely stick to the right strategy, you can try playing more hands for extra profit. If your opponents are too tight, you can bluff more often. You can also make more profit from medium hands just because your tight opponents didn't recognize them. If your opponents are too loose, you can play more semi-strong hands that would not normally be profitable. If your opponents have weakened their standards, you can also weaken yours, but still play more better hands than they did. So, you don't need to be too selective. And while you won't lose a lot of profits if you don't want to adapt to your opponents' play, you can make the most of your profits if you do adapt.
"Stop loss" is a good concept for card games. The term "stop losing" means that if you have lost a predetermined amount of money, you stop playing. Unless you use this concept for purely psychological reasons, or in games where you miscalculated your odds, “stop losing” will not be the most effective way to manage your funds. Since "stop losing" means that you stop playing if you have lost a certain amount of money, you often just stop your winning opportunity. And “stop losing” becomes “stop winning”. If you are emotionally capable of handling your losses, the game is good for you, you play well, and in the end, you will make more money than you lose. This can take a long time, though. But there are still several reasons why you are better off ending the game when you are losing. For example, the game was not as good as you thought, or you failed to put pressure on your opponents, which made them play better. In these cases, you really should end the game when you lose and try to make it even longer when you win. But in each case, you must decide for yourself when to finish. You should not be tied to specific amounts in advance.
Don't count your chips while you're at the table. Chip counting is useful for determining how well you are playing. But you shouldn't use it to create an artificial chain of victories, where you always end the game if you have any winnings. But you need to count your chips. Almost all professionals do this.
After the withdrawal of funds, a streak of bad luck begins. The player tells that he made a cash-out (withdrawal of funds), after which he had a failure in the game. They try to explain this by the fact that he allegedly took the money from the room, and he is now trying to return it. The funny thing is that he understands perfectly well that no one took money from the room and could not take it. Everything we win has been won against rivals - people like us. Poker rooms receive income solely on commissions, and can not lose anything in principle. They do not care who won whom, the main thing is that the game continues. A bad streak is indeed possible after a withdrawal of funds, but it is rather related to psychology. The player has just reduced the amount on the account and is seeking to return it to its previous level as soon as possible. Therefore, frequent mistakes in large pots are possible in the form of replaying average combinations (replaying means the continuation of the game when it was necessary to play a pass).
Online poker is a source of easy money. The relationship between people is based on the fact that each person pays for the work of others to professionals. A person pays specialists to make repairs at his home, set up software, etc. Quite often we have to deal with low-quality work, and in this case we pay a person not for his work, but for his stupidity, unprofessionalism, greed and laziness. Poker is an area in which a person himself has to pay for his stupidity, unprofessionalism, greed and laziness.
