While being in a good mood does not guarantee you success on the felt, being in a bad mood will almost certainly guarantee that you won’t have any. In fact you are more likely to find a leprechaun giving a bear a piggyback than find a player who has won money while being in a vile mood.
So try and play poker when you are in a good mood and focus your attention on trying to change your mood when it is bad! Make sure before you play that you are feeling confident, on the ball, comfortable and positive. This means the reverse is true, so if you feel something is out of place, haven’t slept properly and are tired then don’t play. This is true even if you are playing on a Betfair poker website.
If you are a cash game player then you will understand that the game is infinite. As it never ends you can use this to your advantage by choosing when to play or not to play. If you are a tournament player this is a little bit more complicated, especially if you have travelled to play in a particular game and are not in a very good mood. http://poker.betfair.com/en/how_to_play/
If you are serious about your poker then you need to get serious about your mood. You need to learn new techniques to try and create a more positive you. Try meditation, yoga, listening to some great music or watching a funny movie. It also helps if you make friends on the circuit or have a travelling companion. You will find that people have the ability to also change your mood for the better – well most of them!
