I think we all know becoming a better poker player require dedication.
One way that I’ve found to increase my skill level is by playing different forms of poker. By mixing in different types of poker, you are now looking at the game in a completely new way.
For example, I started playing Omaha and one thing that boosted my holdem game was betting patterns in Omaha. People tend to bet when they have strong hands, then when the board gets scary, they back way off and give up. I was able to apply this thinking to my holdem game and now I scoop more turn and river pots with aggressive plays.
This is just one example of how playing a different form of poker increased my overall poker knowledge.
Give it a try; I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised by how you look at the game.
