4 More Poker Life Hacks

Posted On 02 May, 2018 0

We recently talked about five poker hacks. Here are four more poker hacks to help you enhance your game and make your life a whole lot easier:

1) Consider supplementing your poker education with an evening cardio routine!

A recent university study showed that 35 minutes of interval  performed 4 hours after a learning session can improve your memory retention by . Although this might not be a number worth dying over but poker is a game of very small edges and every percentage point counts. Besides, cardio has numerous other benefits like reducing stress and keeping you healthy.

2) Make poker notes better by acting like you're writing them for players or coaches who will sweat your session.

We’ve all had this happen to us. Sometimes we tend to come up with these elaborate notation systems and then promptly forget all the shortcuts which make our notes a nightmare to read in the heat of the moment. While using shortcuts in your notes is a perfectly valid approach, you might want to consider writing your notes in a manner that would be easy to read by someone who has no idea what you’re talking about, thus making it easy for you to read.

3) Watch coaching videos at 1.25x speed.

The fact that we subjecting ourselves to more and more stimuli at a faster and faster rate made the attention span of an average human shorter than that of a goldfish. However, when it comes to poker its worth speeding things up a little.

Poker isn't exactly played at lightning speed; even if you're watching a zoom poker live video there's usually a lot of downtimes and the ability to cut down a few precious minutes from every coaching video that you watch will add up in the long run.

4) Ask one follow-up question in every line-check thread you create.

Hand evaluation forums are one of the most efficient ways of learning poker and making sure that you become more involved with other users better than the average hand-poster. It is a great way to ensure that you're getting the most out of the process.

We certainly hope these hacks will make your life better. Do you know of anymore? Do let us know by dropping a comment below.
