CREATING A POKER NETWORK
In order to progress, it is important to build a poker network that you can use to stay ahead of the game.
BUILDING YOUR POKER NETWORK
A network of other poker players that you can engage and discuss poker with regularly is crucial to your development as an all around player. You need to be able to bounce your hands and thoughts off of other poker minds, and have other players bounce their strategies off of you.
I received training early in my poker career, and it was invaluable. It taught me all of the basic concepts that I have compiled in these lessons.
But it also introduced me to other serious players, and those players became my network. I would discuss hands and theories with these players constantly. Some of them went on to win millions and still play at the highest stakes, and some drifted away from the game. I owe my poker network everything that poker has given me, because it is what took me to the highest levels of the game.
Be sure to join online poker communities and popular forums where players regularly congregate to discuss strategy. This is an easy and free way to tap into existing networks.
