Lucky vs Unlucky

October 30, 2011 Posted in Poker Blogs by No Comments

All poker players experience lucky and unlucky breaks. Most people that are losing players complain that they are just too unlucky. It is their faulted perception and/or pride that create this belief. Every time a person is lucky, there is a person on the other side that was unlucky (Game Theory). It is always going to even out over time. Players are going to go on unlucky, losing streaks while other players will go on lucky winning streaks.  However, over many hours and hands, eventually the luck curve will even out.  Playing in multi cash games and seeing 1000’s of hands causes the luck curve to eventually come to equilibrium. Of course the luck curve will look a lot different if one is not getting the same opportunities in huge tournaments. You will see the winner of the WSOP to be very lucky when he wins and very unlucky when he is out early the next year. Playing many big tournaments is like playing the lottery; you have to be very lucky in snagging that winning ticket. I do recommend people playing tournaments regardless, since they can be quite enjoyable and anyone with basic poker skills can win.
