Poker Players Are Strange!

March 12th, 2015 | Filed Under: Poker Talk

Throwing Money AwayI’ve tried to figure this out but it eludes me. Why do players say.. “I’m beat but I’m going to call you anyways.”? Do they like giving their money away? If you do this then let me give you my PayPal email address and just send me your money and save yourself a trip to the casino.

First off, we all have instincts, these are gained through life experiences. You play poker for many years and your instincts get honed. Now you are in a pot and your instinct (which is basically your computer brain analyzing all the info on the hand and how a player played and acted) tell you that you are beat. Instead of listening to it, you say that stupid saying and just throw your money away.

Start believing in yourself and give yourself more credit. That’s what poker is all about. Trying to figure out what your opponent has and then deciding if you are beat or not. If you know you are beat, throw the hand away! You’ll definately come out ahead in the long run (provided of course you are usually right when you get your feeling).

    Another stupid saying I see lots of players say is “Im sorry”. If you are sorry for taking someones money, then give it back after you win.

    Then after you do that, don’t play cards again because that is the whole purpose of playing poker, to take all of everyone elses money!

    Not all of us play for money. Some of us play for fun and the social atmosphere. The money is just a bonus.

    And yes.. no one is truly sorry. Some might argue they are just trying to be polite.

    However, if they really wanted to be polite, they wouldn’t draw to those 2 outs and give a player a bad beat. When they do that, they are trying <strong>really</strong> hard to take your money.
