Texas Hold Em Poker Tip – Maintain Your Discipline

This is my best Texas Hold Em Poker tip for poker players striving to make alot of money in Texas Hold Em Poker.

Today I will share with you my top Texas Hold Em Poker Tip. Its called maintaining your discipline. As we all know, luck plays quite the part in our lives every single day, and, certainly it plays a huge part when we play poker. Most of us know that luck isn’t some airy fairy thing that happens to be bestowed upon some people but not others. In reality it is the combination of opportunity and awareness, a mix if randomness, probability if you will, and being attuned to watching for or being attentive to that happening. Luck doesn’t just happen to us, we make it happen.

Luck is the losers lament. You hear people all the time, whining about someone else’s good fortune, sniggering ‘Oh he just got lucky’. Most of us do it all the time. You see a guy driving a red sports car with a beautiful girl in the passenger seat and you think to yourself ‘Lucky son of a’. We all act like skill, either at the poker table or in life, doesn’t play any part in the outcome and it is all merely luck.

By now your probably thinking ‘Why is Alex talking about luck when he should be blurting out the virtues of discipline’? Well the reason is because when playing poker, luck and discipline seem to be virtually connected at the hip. The time most normal poker players lose their discipline is right after they take a bad beat due to being unlucky. Some other guy pulls a flush draw on the river and snaps you, and you lose it. Of course, this is the most important time when you should maintain your discipline. The other situation when most players lose their discipline is when they continually get dealt a string of unplayable cards. Many players will get fed up and try to make something of nothing, usually getting blown away and losing most, if not all, of their stack.

As important it is to maintain your discipline under pressure, you must maintain it in other ways as well. There is a famous quote that goes “The more I practice, the luckier I get”. This is especially true in poker. The key word here is practice. And the key to practice is discipline. You need to take a disciplined approach to your practice if you want to get better at poker. It takes a huge amount of self discipline to deal yourself thousands of hands at the kitchen table, analyzing each and every one and thinking to yourself how you would play each one. It takes alot of concentration and determination to read all the books, watch all the videos, do all the calculations for hours and hours to improve your game.

The best use of discipline is when you are waiting for that starting hand. If you don’t maintain your discipline when your being dealt junk cards, hands like J-3 will start to look like pocket aces. You’ll lose your patience, play loose and end up losing your stack. Of course, the basic ingredient to patience is of course, discipline. Discipline is your best friend when it comes to consistently winning big in poker. That is why its my top Texas Hold Em Poker Tip. Remember to take it with you to every game, every tournament, and stick with it when you play every hand.
