Poker Game From "Meh"

One of the easiest ways to spot the difference between average poker players and elite ones is by how they think about what their opponent has.

Average poker players try and put somebody on a specific hand.
Advanced poker players think in terms of ranges.
A range is essentially the entire spectrum of hands somebody can have in a specific situation. For example, player X can have a flush, top pair, middle pair, bottom pair, a draw, ace-high or a complete air-ball bluff.

Good players understand that player X will show up with this entire range of hands with various frequencies.

They try and figure out those frequencies and then make the best play.

Average players try to put an opponent on exactly {a-Hearts}{j-Hearts} (or some other specific hand) because that's "what their gut tells them."

Re: Poker Game From "Meh"

I enjoy playing poker but I don't take it as a challenge to myself. I just like to play in a good company on this online site - I have tried playing on other sites, but they are not so convenient and I think they are too strict when it comes to paying out winnings. I prefer to play where I can withdraw my deposit to cash at any time.
