Ready to hear what happened to me? Ok, let’s go.

Not unlike many thousands of other Poker Players, I kinda fell in to Online Poker.

There was nothing interesting on the TV, so I switched on the World Poker Tour. Only to be totally hooked by the sheer power of the game. I was spellbound by the level of skill involved, and the stakes they were playing for (although nothing by today’s standard).

There was Phil Helmuth staring into the soul of his opponent, it seemed like he was trying to read the guy’s mind. I saw a man named Ivey raise the pot with nine high, crazy fool! But to my shock and admiration, he took the money down.

The more I watched, the more I thought “ That’s sooooooo easy, I Gotta have some.

“Here I’d like to pause for a second and point out a simple fact that seems not to register with a large percentage of new on-line players (myself included). If you are just starting out in online-poker and playing small to medium limits, forget trying to be Phil Ivey, Helmouth, Brunson, or another player you’ve seen on the TV.

The WPT is a very different game. For one thing there’s far more at stake, the players have battled for days to reach the final table of a major event. Also, these players have spent years learning how to read subtle ‘tells’ that simply aren’t available online. So, to start with, unless you have reached the final table of an on-line tournament that ‘means something’, stick to a basic poker discilpline.”

Advertising quickly led me to an online poker site, and I jumped right in with both feet.

“That’s when I broke my first rule of poker. By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail. -Benjamin Franklin (1706-1790)”

Two weeks later and a few hundred dollars lighter the ‘fish’ swam back under its rock to have a rethink. It was clear to me, that although I knew the rules of poker, I really didn’t have a clue about the strategy required to be a consistent winner at Holdem. I needed my rules of poker.

Yes, I had some good wins, and like most poker players, I would give myself a standing ovation. I was a great player, only just started and winning lots of cash.

“In reality I was losing more than I was winning. The need to be seen as a winner is a strong human trait, and unfortunately, we poker players have an excess of this commodity. Hence the term ‘he/she has it in spades’

Everyone’s a winner…Not… so build that poker discipline.”

Divine intervention occurred in the form of my wife, who, fed up with the constant mutterings in my sleep, (when I occasionally found my way to bed that is) bought me a copy of a book called Super System, written by the great Doyle Brunson.

Poker players commonly know this book as ‘The Bible’, and for the next week, it really did become my bible. Some of the basic stuff it taught me such as ‘position’ and ‘the ‘starting hands’ was god send’.

“This may seem funny but I had been blissfully unaware of these basic poker strategies”.

So I read the bible and put it into practice, but I didn’t stop there I read every book I could find or buy on the subject. I think this may be one of the reasons for my success. After reading all the angles and trying them out, I really learned what worked for me!

But there was more to come…
