Last but most certainly not least, the fourth and final key strategy for playing a strong game of Texas Hold ‘Em involves your ego. You see, one of the reasons this is such an exciting and popular game is because, unlike other casino based games, you are not playing against the dreaded house. You are competing with other people and one of you is going to win.
That is why it is so important to make sure you keep your ego totally in check — especially your “poker ego,” the facet of your ego and your personality that involves when you are competing during a poker game.
Remember, in poker, for every winner, there are a number of losers. Do not let your ego get damaged every time you lose a game, otherwise it will get irrevocably shattered. You need to realize that you will likely lose more than you will win.
There are no guarantees. There are no guaranteed wins. There are no guarantees that just because you are good at Seven Card Stud, you will automatically excel at Texas Hold ‘Em.
