Things have been really heating up in the online Texas holdem poker games that I’ve been playing. When I first started playing the game online, I was a novice, and was facing other novice players. Eventually as I got better at the game, the opponents that I would face became more skilled. I had to grow to meet the challenge of the opponents that I was getting. I’ve gotten so good at the game that I think I’m as good as some of the professionals that play the game in real life. Of course, this is all just my own assessment of my own skills, as I’ve never played against a real player.
The games are pretty intense at the level that I’m playing. The opponents are really good at getting the best hands possible, and even thought I can’t see their faces, they are still good at having online poker faces and making it so that you can fall for their bluffs. I didn’t think it was even possible to do that online, but they showed me a thing or two. I have to have my wits about me when I’m playing against these players, because they can quickly defeat anyone.
For each game that I play, I do my best not to lose, because money and pride is on the line. I don’t always win, and when I lose, each loss feels like a dagger in the heart. I have to take a moment to step back and think about what I could have done differently each time that I take a loss. It’s frustrating, but it helps me grow as a player, and I can come up with new strategies to help me win in the future. I’m sure the other players are doing the same thing when they lose.
