Make it to the top

I get a few hundred requests a year from fans asking how they can make it as professional poker players. This week we take a closer look at two top poker players rise to the very top, so you can see how they did it, and how you can do it too.

Annie Duke
Born in Concord, New Hampshire, Annie Duke was brought up in an intellectual atmosphere right from her childhood. She loved challenges right from the childhood and this is the main reason for her interest in games and slots, both outdoors and indoors. She loved to play with cards right from the beginning and this is where she found out her passion for the games which are related with cards.

She had a great logical streak right from the beginning and this was the main reason for her success on the tables and online casino games, where the most powerful games were to be played. As she came from an intellectual family, her sense of calculation took her to places where all she saw was success. (more…)

Gus Hansen

It was like Gus Hansen had the game in his genes; the way he proficiently played the game, no person would say that he was not a pro at the game. Gus Hansen was born in Denmark and had started playing tennis and backgammon at a very early age. His passion for games and sports matured with age and when he took up poker, he found his forte. This was when he was sent in a student exchange program to the United States and he discovered poker. The year 2002 saw him playing a major tournament and winning it at a grand scale. This was only the beginning; what followed later was to change the entire course of the life of Gus Hansen.

In the year 2002, Gus Hansen won the WPT Classic championship and took home a cash prize of $556,460 and this was when he knew that this is what he wanted to do. Each year, he participated in the major events and kept winning. He always found his spot in the top ranker and this is the reason why his popularity was growing immensely. Form one title to the other, he moved on to the top rankers of the game and was soon a force to be reckoned with.

The year 2010 saw him winning his first bracelet and this was when he also won the Full Tilt Poker with a cash prize of $1 million! This was the best year of his poker history till date. This is just the beginning though. There are many milestones on which his heart is set and this makes it easy for him to keep on winning tournaments. He is also the founder of an online poker website which was later sold to another company. Poker is his passion and he loves to play and propagate the game.

Professional V/S the Amateur

In the field of the poker while playing poker games the audience can immediately make out, who is a professional player? And who is an amateur player? The playing methods and techniques of these two players would be quite different from one another. The professional player plays in a smart way, whereas an amateur player plays in a good way. A player who has a disciple within its inner is a professional player and a player who does not have a disciple is symbolized as an amateur player. Likewise, there are lot of differences between a highly professional player and knowing game rules an amateur player.

An amateur player should always be safe from a professional player. This is most important part in the game of the poker from which every player should be know and understands during his/her play sessions. The decision making power tendency of a professional player is always high and better than that of an amateur player. A professional player plays games with a confident within himself/herself; whereas, an amateur player plays games with an over-confident within himself/herself.

It is but obvious that, all the players in their initial days relies upon luck and fortune much more rather than their skills and strategies; so as, an amateur player play games by depending upon their luck and fortune as well. A player can be a professional player with their presence of mind, confident, mental skills, will power, decision making tendency and many more. When a player makes or creates mistakes he/she does not blame anyone of them such as luck, bad day or fortune. They feel that, it was their mistake because of it they lose the game and try to improve them by learning from their mistakes. One can be a professional player only after getting experience and by learning and improving their skills.
