Who is the most unlucky player?

Face down cardWho is the most unlucky player? This may sound as an odd question in relation to the fact that the luck is presupposed by an absolute variance in an endless time perspective. The luck under these circumstances will only be irregular in short intervals. Besides, the movement of the luck is decided of the complexity in the game or whatever it is that generates luck and bad luck.

Can it then be sad that some categories of players are more unlucky then others? In the long perspective, there isn’t. The question should maybe be put in another way: what categories of players are more suitable to face bad luck?

Factors concering skill

Poker can be a tough game with many up and downs. Sometimes you don’t feel in harmony at the poker table, you are facing too much disappointment. Maybe you have been irritated in the way you have lost some pots: you think that you have played correctly when your opponents have made calls without good reasons.

Can you relate to this situation? Do you often feel that you are more unlucky then other players? If you think that I’m now going to say that you are crying for nothing, you are wrong. The truth is that a skilled player suffers more in poker than the bad player. This emerges from the fact that the bad player more often wins by luck than the skilled player.

The support for this argument is simple: the skilled player doesn’t play for luck, he trying to avoid it. When a skilled player wins theirs is hardly a big thing, it’s only natural, and you won’t be tremendous excited every time it happens. However when you lose you may be upset over how things turned out in the hand. Maybe an opponent was saved by the last card in a situation there this possibility was minimal. Because he overlooked the logical thinking connected to the odds, you feel that he doesn’t deserve it. Maybe he didn’t but you must remember that it belongs to the game you play.

You must learn to accept losing to players you rank below yourself. If you cannot do this, you miss something that belongs to a good poker player: harmony within the game.
