Jason Wheeler is a player with extensive experience in the world of online poker. He holds a number of high-stakes tournaments and has a rather unusual approach to learning. He claims that he prefers to lose rather than win, and that this is the best way to learn the game. Of course, I disagree.
You’ll need to learn to lose if you are to learn how to win in this sport. In this day and age of social networking and email and video conferencing, it’s hard to learn poker online. But Jason Wheeler believes that is better to lose rather than not to lose at all. I do agree with him on that.
His style of play in the game is to look for and exploit the weaknesses of his opponents. Jason Wheeler is very aggressive in the game. He expects the opposition to fold before the hand has been played. When the opposition calls, he expects them to fold no matter what hand he has. When he doesn’t have anything to give, he’ll usually call raising.
The problem with Jason Wheeler is that he’s too aggressive. Playing aggressive means to go into the pot without knowing what you’re doing. Of course, it works in poker games with players you know, but in the real world, you’ll need to be more careful in making decisions about playing your hand.
A simple way to change your approach to playing the game is to ask yourself a question every time you play a hand. Is it in my best interest to raise? If you don’t want to raise, what would be your best bet?
This will help you avoid the traps that are usually created by going into the pot without having all your cards. If you get to the point where you’re calling preflop, you’ll always have a weak hand in the late raises. You could also find yourself against an opponent who has a stronger hand than you and have a weak hand, too.
The best way to fight off the ego in poker is to understand the ins and outs of the game. Knowing the theory behind the game is one thing, but being able to apply that knowledge to the game is another. That’s why the best players in the world are constantly adapting their style of play.
Wheeler is no different. His overconfidence is a big reason for him losing so many games. You should always look for ways to beat him instead of trying to be like him.
The same applies when you’re learning poker. You shouldn’t try to emulate Wheeler. You should use Wheeler’s strategies to learn how to beat him.
Wheeler will always be an aggressive player. He’ll play for a draw. This will work against most opponents, but it won’t work against seasoned poker players who have learned how to keep control of the game.
If you can play off Wheeler, he’ll fold as fast as he can. Wheeler will also play hands he doesn’t think he has much of, but will still call if they call. This means that you should always leave a hand with less than 50% if you’re playing against Jason Wheeler.
You need to look for the weakness of Wheeler’s hand in order to learn how to beat him. Of course, you need to understand the fundamentals of the game before you can apply it. But once you’re able to play those hands against Wheeler, you should try to win every hand that you’re playing, regardless of whether you’strong or weak.
