Do You Suffer From This Poker Disease?

Latest Casino News 08 May , 2019 0

If you play poker you probably think you're a pretty good player, right? Most poker players think they are better than their opponents? In fact, my guess is that 90% of poker players believe they are in the top 20% of their poker playing class.

As a result, poker players catch a disease. It's a disease that starts appearing because of a need to prove to all those who watch them play, that they are smarter and better than you. What is this affliction?

It's FPS. Better known as Fancy Play Syndrome.

Avoid FPS. If you are one of those players who think you are smarter and better than everyone else do not get sick with FPS.

Poker players have big egos. They over-rate their abilities and underestimate the power of their borders. As a result they try to be tricky and play backwards.

For example, playing backwards or Fancy Play Syndrome (FPS) means that instead of betting you check, or instead of checking you raise, or instead of folding you call. When you trick a player and win, it makes you feel smart but it often leads to a bad habit.

It's not bad to be tricky once in a while. But do not start to get too clever or you will lose hands you should win, and lose more chips in pots you should not have even entered.

And, if you spot an FPS player, take advantage of their predictable style. They are predictable because they will do the opposition-calls will mean big hands, bets will mean draw or nothing at all, and checking is a sign of a slowplay.
