5 Common Poker Mistakes
Posted at 05/22/2006 11:13:44 AM in Beginner Topics by The Greedy Gecko.
Below are five common mistakes that players make, especially novice players that think winning at online poker is easier then it really is.

The first mistake that some make is bluffing a weak player. It seems that novice players don't want to lay down. They seem to think that they can play every game and get lucky.

Poker is not about luck it is about skill, so if you want to win you have to know when to hold and know when to fold them.

The second mistake is playing weak hands early. Some players do not pay attention to the position they are playing in. Playing marginal hands early will put the odds against you.

The third mistake that players make is playing for revenge. Some players if they loses think they can make a comeback so they start to increase their bet size. That is not a good strategy because in the end you will most likely just increase your loses.

The fourth mistake is mismanaging money. Some players tend to play in games they cannot afford.

The fifth mistake is not knowing the odds. Knowing the odds can help you decide if you should call to see the next card on the board. People that don't know the odds could end up calling too often and lose because of it.
