One of my hobbies that I've been doing for about 15 years is playing poker and especially Texas Hold'em. However most people think poker is a game of luck, but it really isn't at all.
It's actually a game of incredible skill and about knowing your numbers. It's also about being able to read your opponent.
These days I usually play online for low stakes, but in the past I've been know to win tournaments in Casino's and even sat down at a World Series of Poker event in Vegas a few years ago. Even though I was playing with some of the best poker players around I managed to hold my own. Despite feeling completely out of my depth.
But there has always been one type of poker player that has scared m. If I see this guy sit down at a table, I'll get myself out of there at the earliest opportunity.
Who is it?
It's the beginner who doesn't know the rules.
Usually he will play loose and fast and play hands that others normally won't, so its impossible to read him.
Despite what you see in the movies and in James Bond films, its very rare that someone can bluff their way to a big win. So the best strategy is to only play when you have a winnable hand or a big stack of chips. This means you can bully the people who are scared and steal their blinds.
Anyway… back to the beginner.
He has the ability to take you for everything you have got and the guys who know the game know that.
That's why poker is a lot like running a fitness business and being the guy who plays by the rules you will probably be stuck selling sessions and classes because you've been brainwashed by the rest of the industry.
Don't be that guy.
Be the beginner who plays by his own rules and does business the way he wants to do it.
Be the trainer who earns more and works the hours he wants to work.
