How to be a pro at the poker table
What’s the difference between a good poker player and a winner? Do you know how to behave at the poker table? I bet the terms ‘poker etiquette’ mean something… But do you know what are the must-haves and the clothing you should be avoiding? As much as you can think of – these small details can help you balance things in your favor or on the contrary against you.
If you’ve ever played poker then you probably know that the way you dress influences your game performance, but it also tells a story about yourself in front of the others. So, what else is important to know? Can a tight shirt really ruin your concentration? As a matter of fact – it can! But, let’s dig deeper into this matter!
How to dress at the poker table
This highly debatable subject of how you should be dressing at the poker table still raises questions nowadays even though many specialists have made their opinions public. Therefore, we have gathered for you 3 golden rules you should consider when willing to have a winning night at your favorite casino. Enjoy!
Make sure you stay comfortable
No matter what you choose to wear when going out to play poker, you must feel comfortable. It is usually said that a smart-casual appearance would be the ideal choice for you; of course, if you’re not attending an important tournament or event. Don’t forget to take with you a jacket or something to make sure you won’t get cold at a certain point of the game.
But why is clothing so important at the poker table? Well, it’s obvious. Apart from the poker etiquette, you need to feel relaxed and comfortable when gambling. If not, studies show that inevitably you won’t be able to concentrate 100% on your strategy.
A watch is another accessory you should consider when playing poker. All casinos are built following the same strategy – make the player feel so comfortable that he/she forgets to leave. Don’t make this mistake. Get a watch to always know how much time you are gambling. Don’t let the mirage of a great night make you spend more than you wish. This is just a newbie mistake.
When it comes to gambling online, you’re probably not going to have this problem…
For some, wearing sunglasses when playing poker is just fashion. But, for others is an indispensable accessory that can help them mask their feelings and body reactions. Wearing sunglasses is a debatable issue. Some players feel they’re advantaged by wearing sunglasses while others might feel more comfortable without them. It’s your call…
Remember that saying – ‘clothes make the man’, it might just not be the case here, however, your outfit can definitely influence the outcome of your poker session. Have in mind the goal for the night and pick up the clothes that will provide the right comfort for you to be able to attain your aims. Although you might consider this as a small detail at the beginning, after a while you’ll see its importance. Good luck!
