Lessons Learned

After my appalling start on the “real money” tables, I learned a few essential rules I needed to follow. Well actually, I knew all of these already, I just lacked the discipline to follow them, but thats another post…

Essential Rules:

  • There is always another game, you don’t have to play tonight
  • Never play when your too tired
  • Never play when your too emotional
  • Never play if your on tilt or distracted
  • Never try to recoup your losses in a bad game
  • If the games good, don’t quit when your ahead – keep playing
  • If the games bad, find another game

These are just a few basics, but if you have the discipline to stick to them, then at worst you’ll be minimizing your losses.
