Let me assure you, to fool others that you are on tilt
is one of the best moves (against a good player) you can
make in a session online.
Its an art form
When you get a bad beat (or even just a beat), play it
up in the chat boxes, let the opposition know that you
are not happy. Indeed, MAKE them think you are fuming
and ready to blow. You will have to loosen up to do this,
but throwing 10 to 15 dollars about in order to make $50 or more is fine, isn't it?
A huge aspect in no limit games is your table image.
That means if you are seen as a tight player (someone
who will only play with premium hands), your opponents
will start questioning your state of mind when you start
playing 'recklessly'. Only you and I will know that this
is for a reason. Let them think you aren't playing well,
indeed, encourage that idea.
To offer an example of a given hand here would be foolish
for me, the author, and you, the reader. Each game is
different and each hand within that game is different.
So 'play it by ear'. Learn from your opponents play and
use this to improve your play. Stand up if needs be. Start
hammering at them if needs be. Find your own style, a
winning style. Don't let it go to your head and don't
let your opponents get to your head.
I realize that this article is more based on the psychology
of poker, rather than playing actual hands. That's something
you will have to learn for yourself. Read the thousands
of articles out there and buy some books. This will prove
invaluable in the long run.
probably ISN'T an article for a new player and I advise
caution if that's the case. I hope you've enjoyed reading
this article. Keep and eye out for more future articles by myself and
the other great folks here at thepokercollective.com.
