Poker Myths - Believe or Not?

Poker Quotes

Nobody is always a winner, and anybody who says he is, is either a liar or doesn't play poker.
Amarillo Slim

It’s rather funny and downright fascinating how many myths abound about casino and online poker. With the rise of the game over the web, it seems there are tons of fallacies about how to play, how to bet, how to cash, and on well, you name it! So why don’t we take a minute and debunk some of these myths so they don’t trip you up or cause you to overthink your hand in a game situation.

Take Out Your Money

I guess many people are scared to death to put any money out of online accounts because they think a black cloud will take up permanent residence over their shoulder. This couldn’t be further from the truth. Do you really think online poker rooms pay attention to what you do with your money? They also have no stake in your financial losses or windfalls, so they are not going to call the witch doctor and place some bad mojo on you or ensure you don’t receive a winning hand for a year. It just doesn’t work like that.

Facial Expressions Tell All

Many people think the only way to win at poker is being able to judge your opponent’s facial expressions and body language to wager properly. So not the case. One of the best benefits of playing online is no one can see you or what you are wearing, or where you are and you can still watch your bankroll rise. Reading people doesn’t really factor in the game, so it’s really not as important at a casino as others would like to make you believe. I’m not saying it doesn’t help out, but if you can still win money online instead of at the table, doesn’t that tell you all you need to know?

The Best Always Makes the Most

As with any game, there are good players and bad players, and a lot of people think the good players can just work any game at any time and come out a victor. No way. It doesn’t matter how good you are, luck is the great equalizer and let’s face it there are times no matter how blessed a person is they experience a run of bad luck.

You Make Less Dough on the Web

There are people out there who swear you lose much more online than you do at the casino. Well, there is a grain of truth to that, but only because you can play so many hands than you can live so the opportunity to experience being beaten badly is larger. Heck, it is a numbers game.
