Hows it going? hope all the running grinders doing good in their game.
I havent been much active poker wise. Been playing some live cash games in my city thats about it. Its going ok not that great to be true. Since i dont have much to share about whats going on poker wise i thought why not share some useful poker tips that i have learnt till date.
In my last blog about poker tips i had mentioned about how physical fitness plays an important part in the game. This time i am going to mention another important thing which most of the poker players know but hardly put in practice on the tables. PAY ATTENTION! on the tables a very important thing required in poker players. You can actually improve your game by just watching your opponents on the tables even when u are not involved in the hand. Your observations can be used as a tool to exploit your opponents the next time your are involved in a hand against them. It is a very simple task to be performed but yet ignored by many poker players. Well its not a compulsion to do so but if you are really keen on improving your game its better you follow it.
All you need to do is be mentally focused on the game when u are at a poker table. Gather info about your opponents and KEEP THEM TO YOURSELF no need to blabber them out here n there. I am sure u’ll know what all is needed to be noticed in other players so i wont get much into details here. But if u wanna know more you guys can check out this book called ‘Cairo’s book on Poker tells’ (there might be better one’s that i am unaware off) a good detailed book on poker tells. You Dont have to know every bit of it but try n keep some important info in your head like betting patterns, Strong n weak tells, the way they talk, their comfort level while they are involved in a hand etc. All this is only possible if you PAY ATTENTION!
I know there is a LOT!!! more to learn in poker than just paying attention at the tables. But its one of the most important thing to be kept in mind. A small but powerful tool, as the saying goes “Great Beginnings Start from Small Things” (i hope i got that right :-P)

Thats it for now. Hope u’ll find this tip useful. Take care, be good, and keep doing the damage on the tables. Cheers 🙂
