Luck both good and bad have their fair share in the game of poker. So the luckiest player in the game of poker is definitely the person who draws the maximum from his share of good luck. When the risk is high, luck favors the brave. To the novice it would then appear that the accomplished player gets lucky more often than once, it seems that players playing for a long time are luckier than players who have just begun. The real answer to this paradox is that experienced players make the best of their good luck while the newcomer only relies on his good luck.
Skill vs. Luck
Another rationalization is that players who have experience at the game use their skill to get more from a good draw, luck surely plays its part but one has to play each card with utmost mindfulness if he has to be called lucky. You have to grab the good luck with both hands and the use all your skill and experience to utilize this till you get lucky again. Other’s success cannot always be blamed because of luck you have to try and get lucky yourself.
Learn to get the best out of it
Good players know how to get the maximum when luck is favoring them and also play well when they are not lucky. The average player will play well only when he gets good cards but the good player will play well even with bad cards because he has ability and experience to back him up. The good player will sooner or later get lucky because he is in the habit of getting lucky and also in the habit of wining. The key factor here is how one handles every situation whether it is a lucky one or not. It is good luck that never betrays the player who is ready to risk.
Forms of luck
Poker has many forms of luck and the good player knows best how to exploit each and every opportunity. The inexperienced player not only does not recognize good luck but also lacks the skill in how to deal with it. Everyone desperately needs luck in a big tournament but the bad player will always lament his bad luck while the good one will raise his regardless of the cards.
Good players sense weakness in another player and are always ready to surge ahead on the opponent’s bad luck. Bad players are unable to protect their hand and never manage to check the flop. While they moan and groan on their bad luck the good ones make the best of a weak bet and move along never leaving everything to chance.
Good player and bad player
Luck comes and goes and while the bad player folds under what he perceives as an unplayable hand the good on surely limps when things are not favorable but limps out of trouble. The good player aggressively plays his chips and moves on in a pot and keeps getting from time to time. The good player will eventually get lucky even if he gets some bad draws.
Lastly, lady luck makes her appearance when gets a great draw or what is called a monster hand. The good player will know the tendency of his opponent and also know what the opponent’s perception of him is. A good player will use all his wit and wisdom to throw the opponent off balance. A poor player is very predictable and the good player will know his next move or what cards he has in his hand. The poor player does not know how to reap the maximum from a good hand and the good player knows this weakness of the poor player. A good player mixes all his luck and talents to benefit from every kind of situation, his good luck or his opponent’s bad luck. He will conjure all his efforts in making the best from even a strange situation. As the game gains wider popularity, poker retains its luck dilemma, the game will go on and luck will come along the way of the player who is ready for it.
