"Life, like poker, has an element of risk. It shouldn’t be avoided. It should be faced.”
- Edward Norton
Saving money – is something we would all like to do. Whether you are struggling to manage day to day or earning a six figure salary, saving is something we all think about.
Even when you achieve the highest success at the poker table, you must always continue to study and practice the game.
The greatest poker players stay motivated even when they are way down. It's easy to have a positive outlook if you are winning all the time.
MANAGE YOUR MONEY
It may sound simple, but you should always play responsibly. Know your limits before sitting at the table, and always treat your game like a business.
CONTROL YOUR EMOTIONS
Poker will bring many highs and lows. It's crucial to know when to express your emotions. Also learn to read your opponents face and expressions.
BE AWARE OF SURROUNDINGS
It's important to be comfortable in any element. Always feel out the other players early to help give yourself an edge.
EXPAND YOUR KNOWLEDGE
Don't be afraid to ask questions! The best way to pick up new strategies or techniques is to ask other poker players that you respect.
"I first started playing poker around 2010. I would get together with friends to play friendly games with small pots. I quickly fell in love with the game. My competitive spirit led me to enter several World Poker Tour showdown tournaments."
"The ability to step outside of yourself and think critically & strategically. Not every situation in Poker will translate over to your day to day life, but that doesn't mean Poker can't expand your thinking. Learning to read people or situations is a key to understanding how to position yourself for success in anything you do in life."
"No doubt at the 2019 at the WPT Seminole Hard Rock Poker Showdown in Hollywood, FL . There is nothing like playing poker at the highest level with other great competitors"
"Take it slow. Poker is an investment in both your time and money, so make sure you spend them both wisely. Also, don't be afraid to ask questions. The best way to learn is to get different perspectives on a situation or strategy."
