2) Participate in Poker Forums and Blogs. Reading and posting comments really sharpens your thinking. The more you contribute, the richer your reward.
3) Subscribe to poker newsletters. Most are published monthly, and written by some of the best players and thinkers around.
4) Read books. I have never read a bad poker book (no matter how bad it was). Every book, even the stinkers, have something to offer.
5) Rail-bird. On-line rail-birding is simple and bountiful. Just check your poker site’s leader-board, and watch the leaders play. Great lessons are available just for the watching. Some of the leaders also have their own web-sites and blogs.
6) Hire a coach. Many poker pros now offer various forms of on-line coaching.
7) Watch instructional DVDs. One of my favorites is Final Table Poker with Phil Gordon.
8) Subscribe to poker magazines. Poker magazines are a monthly treasure chest of fresh poker ideas and information.
9) Download ebooks and ecourses. But, be careful because some are expensive. So, be sure you know the author. The better ones include audio, video, and hand history review. Some even include limited coaching.
10) Utilize software programs. This can take some research as there are many to choose from. Find one (or more) that help while you play, and afterward for critical review of your play.
11) Watch TV, and on-line radio and TV. The radio programs offer many interviews with some of the greatest players.
12) Visit sites with awesome content. There are many, probably more than you could ever visit. Some are public, and some are private for members only.Sound like a lot of work? It is. But, everything you could ever need to know to improve your game is somewhere in these twelve places.And, here is the best part. Every learning experience reveals new secrets. That’s right. As your knowledge expands, so does your recognition of secrets. And, as you are able to recognize and assimilate secrets, your knowledge expands. Like they say, the more you know, the more you know. So in a sense, there really are no secrets. At least, none that we cannot find once we are ready to look.I guess I sound like I am talking in circles. So, here is my point, stated more to the point: there are no poker secrets. There are no magic bullets or magic potions, either. As you seek to improve, everything that you need to know to improve will be revealed. It is only the seeking that is important. This is because you will only seek when you are ready to understand what you find. And, it is not until you are ready, that you will understand what you find.Essentially, therein is the origin of the saying that, ‘poker takes a lifetime to learn’. Poker is learned slowly and in layers, something like the skins of an onion. A young onion is small and without many skins. As the onion matures, it grows in size. There are many more skins, and each is larger than the one before. Poker knowledge is like the skins of an onion. You cannot have a large, fully encompassing skin of knowledge, until many smaller skins have preceded. Adding those skins of knowledge is a slow process. In the case of both the player and the onion, it is a lifetime process. And also, as in the case of the onion, with proper nourishment, each skin of knowledge will be added.So, do not be misguided into thinking that a treasure chest of secrets will shorten your learning process, allowing you to become an overnight success. Nope. It will only be a baggy skin that you will still have to grow into.

One to One Poker Games Are Everyone’s Favorites

People seem to prefer one to one poker games. It’s the aggressiveness and adrenaline involved that lure so many persons to these heads-up games.The One to One poker game became a choice that is well used around the world. The main reason behind it’s popularity are the online casino websites, that offer poker buy-ins with values to suit any budget, from just one single dollar to thousands of dollars. There are additional reasons for people to make this choice, like the fact that the One to One poker game is very fun and it is a great way to develop one’s aptitudes.In short, things are like this because a poker player can not hide in such a game. You have to always pay for the poker blind, with each and every new hand, and if you wait for those Aces to appear, you will become broke in no time by placing forced bets.Hands like A2, K3 or J4 return great odds of getting the flop if you play them in such a direct game. Unless someone else places considerable raises. You should always fold when getting bad hands like 5-3 or 8-2. In a one to one poker game it’s crucial that you know how to effectively bluff, how to tell you opponent’s hand and how to play your post-flop bets.The other basic element of a heads-up poker game is the position. This thing is very important in no-limit games. Because the first poker player will place the small blind bet in this format and this allows him to act first before the flop round and the last one after it, both players get almost equal chances of taking the lead. The pressing can be continued after the flop.You will have to play very aggressive when you are first. The most part of your defensive poker will be done when you are late position. Working on this constitutes the first step towards success in a one-to-one poker game. But we must not underestimate the human factor, as in the end it all depends on the poker opponents you get. If your opponents use the same strategy the chances are that you will duel each other in a long battle, where no one is willing to give up anything.In a no limit poker game, it takes only one huge mistake that can cost you your entire poker bankroll. Dozens of small mistakes can not do so much harm as a huge one does. It can come out of a strategy error, or simply because you are not paying enough attention. So make sure you are analyzing everything both from your perspective and your opponent’s perspective.
