When you’ve got a few spare minutes whilst you’re sitting at home do you quickly turn on your computer and play poker with Paddy Power to see if you can win a few hands? If you do you’ll likely think after a couple of wins that you’re ready to mix it with the big guys in the industry and fancy yourself as a bit of a Phil Ivey. What doesn’t get said enough is that there are some pretty distinct personality traits that set the top dogs apart from the rest of us chancers.
Top poker players are able to keep their emotions at bay and play the hand and not the situation and how often are you able to do that? Never? I thought so. Most of the time we react to things happening within a game that have little bearing on the result but we pick up on them. How often does pride get the better of you and you HAVE to call otherwise you feel silly?
It’s for this reason we’ve come up with a quiz to see what type of poker player you are.
