Factors that allow you to move up the stakes
Let's get nostalgic and mentally go back to the times of the poker boom, when a whole army of fans of this game rushed to conquer the poker Olympus. Over the years, time has put everything in its place, the vast majority of players who dreamed of multimillion-dollar earnings and a luxurious life have not managed to grow in limits. And only a few are now at the top of poker glory.
So why did some manage to become good professional players, that now they are in the poker news reports with regular winnings, while others remain at the very bottom or play poker only for entertainment?
Some will say that success has come to more intelligent people, others will put it down to extra luck and say that everything was decided by a banal case. Partially, this is true, but in reality, significant results are achieved by players who constantly work and improve their game.
Four factors can be singled out at once, adhering to which you can notice shifts and start growing in limits:
Factor 1️⃣ - Learning Theory
You can't just start playing poker in a great way at once. In order not only to move up in the limits, but at least to hold on and not fall to the limits lower, you need to practice and boost your skills constantly.
Poker is a very dynamic game. Playing strategies which were relevant 5-10 years ago can simply leave you without a bankroll at the end of 2022. It is important to work on yourself constantly, studying new information, reading various educational articles, working with poker software and coaches.
Factor 2️⃣ - Psychological aspect and lack of tilt
When it comes to psychology in poker, some might think that it's all about being able to resist tilt, but that's just one of the branches for future success.
We're not even talking about the times when you're downswinging or having to sit for hours. It's about the possibility of losing your mind from the state when the dispersion goes off scale in a positive direction, and you literally break your limit. At such moments, staying at a stable emotional level is as difficult as during periods of tilt, your endurance and concentration should be unchanged.
Factor 3️⃣ - Competent approach
Like in any business, success does not come by itself. It comes only with a competent game strategy and an optimal approach to organizing the process. In the future it will be possible to talk about some results.
First of all, this concerns the distribution of your time, when you see and understand how your working day or week will be arranged, how much it will take you to learn,play the game and rest. The choice of a poker room and a reasonable table select are also important. Your results will directly depend on them. If fishier lineups gather in your room closer to 17:00, then it will be foolish to do any other things at this time, except not to play.
The game should bring you comfort so that you are not distracted by all sorts of annoying elements. Fatigue will have a detrimental effect on your results, so you need to decide how many hands and how many tables you could play daily, weekly and monthly. In a word, the whole process of your game must be organized competently and logically.
Factor 4️⃣ - Concept of money
One of the most important factors that people don’t pay much attention to. One of the reasons why pretty good ones tread water on the same limits year after year lies precisely in misunderstanding of the monetary aspect of the issue.
But do not confuse the issue of money with the concept of bankroll management. First of all, you need to ask yourself the questions: "why do I need money?" and "why do I need to move up the stakes?". No abstraction in the answers, only clear and specific suggestions. Make it clear to yourself why you came to poker and what heights you want to achieve. If you answer the questions honestly, motivation will come, which will become your driving force on the way to the goal. Due to a lack of understanding of these seemingly simple things, many players over the years have not managed to escape from the clutches of the microstakes.
Right now, try to figure out which of the factors is least developed for you and make every effort to improve it. Only taking into account the complex of all the above factors and applying them in practice will make it possible to talk about the rise in limits.
