Fedor Holz is the professional poker player who famously won a major tournament. He used the money from that tournament to start his own brand of poker cards, which he named Pokerstars. He made a ton of money during his career as a professional poker player and has been making it in tournaments on and off ever since.
While he did win the money he won the money on a great stage, just like everyone else. So what makes Fedor so unique?
Well, let’s get down to it. The truth is, his first wins were at the first ever online poker game, which we will talk about later. Although that is all he did initially, he quickly rose to become one of the best players online. In fact, even now he will take a relatively long time at a table to beat somebody who has played on as many different sites as he has.
How does he do this? He plays poker very much like a traditional-style poker player. Except, he will be playing much better in some ways.
He will have the same variations of ranges as any other poker player and maybe even more so. To be more specific, the differences are, you don’t really need to know exactly how many outs the dealer has at any given point. And he will probably play a certain range of hands in each hand, although he doesn’t play as many different hands as you might expect.
Now, if you have ever had a bad hand, then you know that it can really mess you up. You need to focus on a particular range of hands, because they will let you relax a little. While you would probably focus on a totally different range if you had not had a bad hand, you should use a limited range if you were going to have one at all.
If you had a hand that was bad but not that bad, you would try to focus on that hand. But if you are stuck with a hand, then you can still relax and play it well enough. This is part of what makes a card player like Fedor so great.
Poker is probably the only type of card game that is skill based, rather than luck based. There is a reason why so many good poker players focus their attention on focus, for example. The focus is what keeps you focused on a particular situation and will usually make a good player as good as they are.
We discussed focus above, and how it allows you to focus on one hand. Now, we will get into more detail on why there are situations when you can let your focus go and fall back on an obvious range that is very likely to beat the hand.
Human nature is to let our focus go when it is not really needed. Some people like to make money by being a homeopath, so they focus on homeopathy and put their focus on those spots where they can make money.
Others are focused on making money, so they go into a casino and just bet the money they see. They go home with the money, but they don’t focus on the hands that they lose.
Although poker isn’t an activity with human nature as big as other games, there are some situations where you can let your focus go and be able to win more money than you might expect. Some sites have these poker sites now, which lets you build up a bankroll, so you can sit down and play poker for a while.
