It’s rather odd how you can never truly learn the depths of poker if you don’t lose, but it’s a fact. Developing your logic, mathematics and strategy skills isn’t enough to be a winner – for that, you also have to be able to read between the lines when it comes to the actions and decisions of your opponents. So what’s the key to making the best out of a terrible situation? Professionals say the answer consists of keeping calm and relaxed.
When you’re agitated, whether it’s because you’re excited about having a good hand or anxious because of a bad one, it’s very hard to focus and make wise decisions, thus risking losing. Being focused, keeping your guard up even when you know that you’re about to win is what will grant you success in the long run. For this, controlling your breathing helps more than expected – these situations are inevitable, so it’s good to find a breathing technique that suits you well.
Surprisingly enough, hydration is also important and it’s one of the essential parts of a professional’s routine. The brain functions best when you drink enough water, and a healthy diet would blend in perfectly – a healthy body means a healthy mind, so if you want to be at your best mentally, you shouldn’t neglect your needs. Take the time to analyze the actions of your opponents.
In time, you will start recognizing patterns that will allow you to separate the good players from the bad ones. Knowing your environment is essential if you want to keep focused, so make sure that you pay attention to the others too. If you have the patience to try it, meditation can clear your mind in ways that you’ve never imagined. Not everyone does it, so it’s good to keep an ace up your sleeve (metaphorically, of course).
