While psychology, mathematics and discipline are the basics of getting your game moves right. You are going to have to know some more secrets to get the game over to your side.

Given below are some of the least known secrets that make experienced players what they are:

  • Beating your opponents is not hard. If you attack their personal weakness directly, and if you can do a good job of it, half the battle is won. Every section of a game is dependent on the previous section. Behaving irrational in your moves can also help puzzle your opponents. If you notice that a player’s moves are lacking discipline, you know that you have to exploit that.
  • Note how the game changes. Along the course of a game, very few players are conscious of the pattern which the players are adopting. Your opponent may be tight in some sections and loose in some others. Some are reckless players but that does not necessarily mean they do not know what they are doing. In all probability, you may not be able to figure what is real, and that is what you need to find out. Understanding your own style first is very important as mentioned earlier, and then you can get a grip over these patterns. Observation is the keyword here.
  • An important thing to know is that manipulation is not always the best tool to use. If you are put in an online game of poker against strong opponents, it is very likely that your manipulations are not going to pay off as you might expect them to.
  • Card odds can become less significant as you begin to learn how to guess at your opponent’s hands. This is not the hardest thing. Math that is required for poker isn’t of a very advanced level. Many poker experts do not even need to apply actual formulae. They instinctively understand probabilities. Your involvement levels in the game should be high so that you can tell their hands by their tells.
  • Playing a fast game unnecessarily can build a certain reputation for you, as a player. Similarly, a lot of other cover ups can help you divert focus. This works really because every player is extremely focused on the game and is constantly on the look for a chance. If you appear like a mundane, closed player, you are not likely to appear as a threat, at least not the first in their priority.

Some of the best players are known to extend investment risk evaluation to their real lives as well. Although not much of a secret, this is one of the most common mistakes poker players make. While their focus on the game is intact, they tend to forget in the momentum of the game, their bankrolls. Weighing your investment against the risks for the whole game is as important as it is in the game.
