Poker is Easy to Learn, but Hard to Master – True or False?

Now you have had an introduction to the rules of poker, you need to make a decision. You should pick one and only one of the four standalone variants (not the mixed HORSE variant) to focus your attention on. This is the game that you will learn, study and develop yourself into a winning poker player at.

Once you have mastered one variant, then if you wish can move onto learning others at a later date, but it’s vitally important that you concentrate on just one for the time being. There is a famous saying in Poker, “Poker is easy to learn, but hard to master” and it is a reasonably truthful statement if you spread yourself too thin. However if you focus on just one game, then it is relativity straightforward to become a winning player.

We highly recommend that you choose No Limit Texas Holdem as your starting game. It is the most popular form of poker in the world, the most widely available, the variant used in all the large poker tournaments and for those reasons is the one which we have based a lot of our further courses on.

The next step, now that you have an understanding of the basic rules of how to play poker is to develop a poker strategy to stand any chance of being a winning poker player. There are logical and mathematical principles behind poker which is at the end of the day a game of probabilities with a certain number of cards and possible outcomes, so having a basic strategy, and knowing when to play and when to fold will make you a much better player overnight.
