hey guys hows it going? Hope you’ll are doing well at the tables,
This time i am not going to write a blog on poker strategies or hand discussions or whats happening in the PG MP sessions. There is another aspect needed for this game which is equally important and highly misunderstood by poker players and that things is “PHYSICAL FITNESS” (which everyone will realize sooner or later as i did) Yes physical fitness is one of the most important part of poker specially tournament poker where players have long sessions of not less then 10hrs (even more) at the tables.
Poker players in general are very unhealthy people they lac physical exercise, unhealthy diet, unbalanced sleeping hours and also consumption of alcohol on or off the tables etc. It doesn’t matter if you playing live poker in your favorite casino or online poker at the comfort of your home these long tiring sessions are very physically challenging, specially for people who take this game very seriously and professionally. So in order to put in such high volume of the game at one time in a day physical and mental fitness is very important (physical fitness itself helps in mental fitness).
There is not too much effort required for this folks all you have to do is put in a few hours (3-4 hours, the more the better) of physical exercise during the week and keep continuing the same before and whenever you plan your poker schedule for the day or week and by the end of the it you will yourself feel the change in you, your game and your ability to make better decisions at the tables.. This whole physical training thing will help you in many ways. It will help increase your focus in the game, make your mind work faster than it normally does, you will be able to continue for longer sessions than you normally do and also will also help you feel less tired by the end of the day than you normally do (might also attract good looking women you never know ;)).
I know its too much of a task to drag our lazy ass out of the bed to the gym, morning jog etc. but trust me guys it helps a lot and i have experienced it my self. I know most of you guys won’t even consider this advice but you will miss out on something which is very important and necessary for your game.
GOOD HEALTH + POKER = BETTER DECISIONS AND GREAT RESULTS. Take care be good and keep doing the damage on the tables cheers 🙂
