Ever since I first started playing poker, I was looking for that perfect strategy to give me an edge over other players. Learning this one super simple trick can increase your rake by 25% or more. The trick is maximize earnings while still decreasing risk. Of course in poker, more risk means more reward. So this task and be quite a paradox at times. My strategy is as much of a different playing technique as much as just a different way of thinking about the game as a whole. If you stand back and look at the whole picture, you can get a much better idea of what is going on.
Long ago I changed my approach at poker and I noticed my wins steadily growing afterwards. Simply by changing my thought patterns, I was able to do this. Basically, I started thinking of each poker as a stock exchange market. When you invest in the market, there is obviously some risk involved, much like poker. After I started thinking about poker this way, I was asking myself new questions during poker games. Like, if this was a company, would I invest in it? It may sound absurd, but it absolutely has worked for me.
Next time you're sitting at a poker table, try to approach it like the stock market. Invest in hands that have good potential. Sell your stocks before the company goes belly up. If you think the company has very good potential, then invest more in it. Just try it once in a while and you may find yourself winning more hands.
