It would be a wonderful thing to
be the ninth-best poker player in
the world---unless you sat down in
a game with the other eight who
are better than you.
Game selection is one of the most
neglected elements of poker for even
the most advanced players, yet a
strong case can be made that it is
the most important decision a player
can make. The money is made in
poker when opponents make worse
decisions than you do, so you want
to surround yourself with players
who are prone to making them.
Unfortunately, there isn't a whole
lot you can do about it, in the begin-
ning. When you take a seat in a poker
room, you are confronted with a sce-
nario of uncertainty and randomness.
The same table that may produce
the juiciest game in poker history
can transform into a stomach-
churning game that leaves you gasp-
ing for air in the span of a few hours.
It's important to keep your wits
about you and your ego in check as
you assess your ability to turn a profit
in your selected game. You don't
have to be the best or even the sec-
ond-best player at the table---you
just can't be one of the five worst.
If you play in a regular game with
the same opponents, the financial
bottom line tells the story.
The actual game itself is of obvious
importance. Most committed poker
players have a certain degree of
expertise in Texas Hold em varia-
tions. This doesn't mean that skill
transfers equally into other games,
like Omaha, Razz or Triple Draw.
Back when online poker flourished
in the US, I once made a very bad
decision and jumped on a Poker Stars
table with Barry Greenstein, who's
considered one of the greatest
mixed-game players in the world.
We played Omaha Hi/Low, and
while I thought I had a handle on
the game, it became very obvious
that I was in over my head.
The game has interesting quirks.
Players can win the pot with the
high hand and with the low (players
must have 8-7-6-5-4 or lower to
qualify). It's a fun game, because it
produces a lot of action. Every flop
hits a big hand or draw, and the pots
usually dwarf the size of those found
in a typical Hold em game played
at similar limits.
Well, I chased too many lows, took
too many runs at Greenstein and
went to the digital felt twice in less
than 30 minutes. It's not my game,
and when you take into account the
level of the opposition and the higher
stakes, there was no way to justify
my taking the seat.
It's a good thing to attempt to
learn new games, but when you do,
Time to unplug: Online poker has
gotten the best of European pro Gus
Hansen. Cardplayer.com reported
last week that in the past six months,
he has lost $6,328,995, and his life-
time losses are nearing $10 million
on Full Tilt Poker.
Hansen has lost more money than
any other documented online poker
player in history, and if you run the
numbers on the 1.2 million hands
he's played, it averages out to a loss
of $7.50 per hand.
