Poker Cheat Psychology

  • A poker cheat never concedes to his wrongdoing. So be prepared for this situation whenever you are confronting or dealing with a poker cheat about his activities. Even if caught red-handed, he will definitely try to play the same game again & again.
  • It’s a fact that not all cheaters are driven by monetary profit. Some are motivated by the excitement of winning or the thrill of cheating without being caught. So never consider low stake games as safe game play.
  • If you think that you’re proficient at looking out for a card cheat in a game, you will only encourage the cheater. A poker cheat will take it as a dare task to take on. As said earlier, it is not always about monetary profit but also about the thrill to get away with a quick & wise cheating trick.
  • It has been observed that alcohol always encourages the cheater, but it also distracts him from the game. In fact there is a very popular saying “cheating at cards is either a profession or a disease”. So when it’s a disease, alcohol has an ironic double-effect as it encourages the cheater to cheat & on the other hand it affects his skills of cheating wisely.
