Skill versus Luck in Texas Hold'em Poker

The debate goes on, but consesus seems to be that skill constitutes about 30% of the game for novice/intermediate poker players, decreasing to about 10% for expert players. Luck becomes more important in the minefield stage of a tournament (or rather to not have bad luck here) as well at the final table of a tournament in particular.

Poker is largely a game of skill, so within a few months of study and disciplined play you will move up in skill level and have several million players below you. This enables you to slowly build up your bankroll and also allows you to enter bigger tournaments for free.

Luck can be used to your advantage. At times of general good fortune, with the help of the planets on your Lucky Days, you will generally be playing on days when you get dealt better cards and close calls tend to go your way. This is a fact, simply because planetary transits work, even though nobody knows why.

Luck is a very real factor in poker, ESPECIALLY in the early and late stages of a tournament. When you are sitting at the final table of a tournament, that is the time when you need a bit of extra luck and this software will indicate days where you will generally get the edge you need.

If you can just follow the following rule, you will be playing to a positive expectation:

Only play the best hands and poket pairs. Almost always, discard everything else.

And when you do get a good hand, back it hard and with conviction. Using this strategy alone you will become a better than average player.

Poker players, like everything else, live by skill and pecking order. Only, in this case, this skill is almost instantly redeemable as cash. Wherever you may be, for a couple hours work, you can be RAKING IN MONEY ON A DAILY BASIS.
