1- Playing on Tilt

Whenever you take a hit, always take a break from the tables for some time. If you feel angry or upset, walking away from the game for few minutes/hours/days is the best way to give yourself time to get back in the groove. Never let your negative emotions influence your decisions at the game table if you want to prevent yourself from losing more money.

2- Bluffing almost every hand

Never make a bluff without carefully considering your hand strength, opponent’s skill set, table position, experience, and bet size. Bluffing every hand makes you easily predictable and vulnerable. Take your time to assess the table situation and read your opponent’s gameplay before deciding to make a bluff.

3- Scared of making mistakes

Poker is a psychological game which requires confidence and patience to take tough decisions. Nervousness and fear of losing chips can lead to hesitation and poor/irrational decisions such as folding premium hands. Winning and losing is an integral part of the game. You cannot win each and every game you play, but you can improve your chances of winning by learning from your mistakes. The more you play, the more you learn, and the more opportunities you get to spot weaknesses in your gameplay.
