Poker And Sports Betting

poker babe Shana Hiatt If you play poker and bet on sports, you know that some common themes exist that unite the two.

If you don't do both, you may want to consider it.

There are a number of skills that are needed for each option that may transfer well to the other. If you utilize all of these skills to good effect in one of these areas, you may want to consider trying to succeed at the other.


Poker and Sports Betting: Strategic Thinking

Both poker and sports betting require careful planning. It may not seem this way to the untrained observer, but those who wish to be successful will have a plan.

Some successful gamblers play video poker online first before they start on the real-money tables.

A good poker player has a strategy that begins long before the final card is dealt. He assesses his opponents and maps out a plan of attack for each hand.

Similarly, a good sports bettor doesn't just put money down on his favorite team or go with his hunch about what team will win, he collects the statistics and analyzes them to come up with a plan for the best sports bets in each contest.


Poker and Sports Betting: Patience and Discipline

In poker, if you play every hand, you are begging to go broke. Playing as many hands as you can as deep as you can play them is a recipe for disaster in poker.

In poker, you need to hang back and wait for your spot, then strike when the moment is perfect.

Similarly, if you bet on every single football or basketball game on a given day, you could be asking for trouble, although many people do this.

Some games and lines simply don't offer a worthwhile edge to play, and good sports bettors understand this and look elsewhere.


Poker and Sports Betting: Adaptability

In both poker and sports betting, there may be situations where your plan just isn't working.

In those cases, you need to adjust, whether it's hedging your sports bet or shifting gears at the poker table.

If you can't adapt, you could be in big trouble. Good poker players and sports bettors are always alert to a change in the weather, and can change their strategies accordingly.
