Poker skills for thought

Postby kikovti » Tue Jan 08, 2008 1:01 pm

hi guys, i am new to this forum. quite interesting to know there are actually so many poker fanatics like me in singapore.
alittle about myself. :) i play on FTP with nick engshaoxuan and some live pokers with my frens.

So i read daniel negreanu's books and found this interesting article about where u might stand in terms of your poker skill.

Level 1:
Ability to see your hand strength and play hands that are gd or have strong drawing power. understand the basic math behind poker and understand pots odds and implied odds.

Level 2:
wat u can do for lvl1. and ablity to read your oppenent hands accurately in accord to what they do. bet size, betting pattern or even posture.

Level 3:
lvl2 + ability to think what your oppenent put you on.

So what level are you guys on?
i would say i am around lvl 2. :)

determining ones level of thought is quite an important step in improving poker play. So many times that people totally disregard what is going in a hand and all they focus on is the strength of their hand or draw. more often than not, a speech is given afterwards on how they could not fold their hand. if these people would just look at the action in front of them, they have access to lots of information.

as to OP's question, my level of thinking is so high up that i forget what i am holding, but, i can see the community cards clearly, as soon as they are dealt of course. this requires hours and hours of practice, mental patience, stamina, determination and porn.

I think OP neglected to mention that as ones level goes up, they start playing mind games with opponents and cards are no longer used. history and betting patterns dictate who would win or lose in the hand

let's not forget you have to believe!

always shove before you have the best hand. That's the best way to get value!

There can be miracles
When you believe
Though hope is frail
Its hard to kill
Who knows what miracles
You can achieve
When you believe somehow you will
You will when you believe

but yeah, your heart must be pure=)

I'm like level 55 on this.

poker, a few mintues to learn but a life time to master ~

I think its not important so as important to know exactly "where you are".
Most importantly is to have the character and discipline to constant review your games , read books, talk about poker etc to keep improving your game.
As u grow in your skills in multiple areas, hopefully $$ will naturally come in ^_^
