It’s no secret that king’s skill defines many parameters that form so -called "Plinness" player. These include psychological stability, knowledge of the mathematical foundations of poker, and the ability to competently dispose of Bankrole, and many more equally important skills.
But the main quality of any good poterist is not a steel nerves at all, but the ability to instantly evaluate the power of his opponent and choose the most corresponding strategy for playing with him.
In living poison, everything is obvious, because an opponent can start a conversation, watch the game during the tournament or read his thoughts by face expression. But how to be in online where opponents are almost indistinguishable from each other? Despite this, there are many signs of a weak player that we will talk about in this article.
The size of the stack
Playing the cache, the poterist has the full right to take as much chips at the table that he sees fit, but there are certain standards based on the so -called stack to sweat (SPR). In essence, this concept dictates the rules of play with one or the number of chips, and the optimal initial size of the stack of a professional player is considered to be 100 large blinds. It is worth noting that there are strategies for which 40 or even 20 large blinds (so-called MSS strategies) should be bought, but in modern online they are hardly used.
Amateurs, however, almost never pay attention to the size of the stack and take a minimum number of chips at the table, calculating in case. There are other times when a weak player prefers to take an in -depth stack to put pressure on opponents.
Saw at the table a non -standard stack whose owner does some strange things? With great probability in front of you a weak rival.
Bid out of turn
Poker rules dictate a strict order of action that is often unable to change. Yet there are several manipulations that remain at the discretion of the player. One of them is the production of great blind while entering the table.

During the drawing of their hand, strong pokerists pay attention to the huge number of factors, the most important of which is mathematics. Each of their step is pre -calculated and follows a certain poker logic.
As for newcomers, their actions are haphazard and contradictory, because they are not worth the issue of winning – many of the recreational players are just having fun. Noticed the strange size of the rates or prepogan combination at the disclosure? Remember and notice this nickname.
Behavior at the table
How to distinguish at the table behavior of a newcomer and a professional player? Prof almost never writes in chat because all his attention is focused on the game. In addition, experienced pokerists often open several tables and they just do not have time for something else. Amateurs are primarily tuned to receive vivid emotions, and communication is a must -have detail of their rest.
One of your opponents has fully occupied chat? Do not interfere with him, let him have fun and you focus on the poker.
Strong and weak opponents in tournaments
Unlike cache game, where a poterist can get up from the table at any moment, as well as choose a more convenient place, the tournament poker of such freedom does not give. The player is forced to adjust under opponents and make appropriate adjustments to the strategy.

Once a table with unknown rivals, you should define their skills as soon as possible and mark everyone with a color or text note. As in cache to play, you should pay attention to the tactics, the size of the rates and maps of opponents when they reach the opening. By most players’ tournament tables, you can conditionally divide into three large groups: regular, taut player and amateur.
Regular. Most often it is a professional poker who earns a living and therefore has strong skills and can cause significant problems. Regulars mainly adhere to taita-aggressive style, competently select the size of the rates and skillfully use the weaknesses of opponents, so competitions with them should be avoided. Only enter the game with as stronger hands and throw cards in the pass at the slightest danger.
Titic player. This type of opponents can be considered the easiest to play as they only fight premium cards on their hands. A tailot opponent shows aggression? Set aside if you do not have the best of the possible combinations.
Amateur. To find a amateur at the tournament table is quite easy because it makes a huge amount of inconsistent and illogical action. A weak player can go to the Alll-in in the first distribution of the tournament, as well as passively play the best combinations, hoping for an opponent’s mistake. If you saw someone at the table played the Limp-Hll-in Line, there is a high probability that you have a typical amateur.
In the game against such rivals should be slightly expanded ranges and show aggression with strong combinations. Most likely the amateur will not cope with curiosity and will come to the disclosure, giving out most of his chips.
Certainly there is a huge number of other signs of a weak player, and you will need considerable experience of playing to study them all. Improve your own skills and you will not have to look for comfortable rivals soon – most of the opponents will be behind.
