Poker Winners Tip

Regardless of your ability and history, it’s essential to put a plan in place so you can document where you think you can improve and where you want to go. Even if you play recreationally, rather than trying to earn a long-term income from poker, set yourself targets. Improving as a player isn’t just going to happen, you have to be proactive about trying to improve and putting it on paper will help to focus you on improvement.

Things to document:

• What are your strongest games? (MTT, SNG, CASH / NLHE, PLO, etc.)
• What is your effective bankroll? (How much are you willing to invest in poker long-term?)
• How often do you want to play?
• Realistic targets for the number of games you will play over the next four weeks?
• How can you try to improve? (Books / articles / videos / coaching / self-analysis)
• Which areas of your game do you feel you need to improve?

By taking the time to think about a plan for the month ahead, you are already doing more than 99% of poker players and starting to gain an edge over your opponents.
