Winning and losing all depends on you and if you know the right thing and you do the right things at the right time there are more chances that you will win. It is all about confidence which I have but also I never allow my confidence to turn into the thing people call over confidence.

What is your win lose ratio?

I will call it even. After learning so much, I never ever consider myself the winner before the right time. There comes a time when I never lose and I am always on the winning side but there also comes a time in which I lose but then I learn from my mistake there and try to make it right next time. I never stop learning new tips and techniques due to which I will certainly want to put more load in win case than the lose one.

How you learned to play poker?

I learned poker by going through websites and learning about new ways to play. I also went to professional poker players and asked them to teach me, though only a few of these agree but there are every kind of people and you just have to find the right guide for you. But to be honest with you, this is not something you will be able to learn on notes, you have to step up and play to understand it and for this I played online poker games which helped me a lot. Think of it as, practice makes a man perfect – but no one is perfect so never stop practicing. This is the key I kept in mind and learned poker.

Who said poker is even easy for professionals? Poker is not an easy game at all unlike most of people think and say you only have to put the right bet. This is not the case, you have to use your mind, not only mind but a sharp mind. Though not to discourage, poker is easy to learn and understand but if newbies get good in practicing it they will find it less challenging.

Why you think that poker is even worth learning with a risk involved every time?

Why not? Everything is worth a risk and taking the risk is a step of bravery but calculated risk. Don’t risk your whole monthly pay! But risk a small amount that you spend on things that hold no importance to you but you have to spend the money because you have money. Risk those, maybe it gets more and if not then this was the risk. Play intelligently before risking an amount and poker is worth it.
