Sometimes, the best poker advice is to not play at all.
It is still true that the most profit to be had from a game of poker will come from money ‘not lost’ rather than won.
Poker is a game of mistakes, and the player that makes the least costly mistakes will come out the biggest winner. This is a two-fold lesson. Not only will your mistakes cost you the most, but also you will win most from capitalizing on other playres mistakes.
This piece of poker advice can be very difficult for many players to take on board, which is a great pity, as sooner or later they will come to realize the truth of it. In the natural course of a poker playrs education a lot of chips will be needlessly lost by not accepting this truism early.
