Card Players

Can a card player be good for business?

Although it is not a guarantee, being a good card player can open doors for you to work on Wall Street, the main stock exchange on the planet.

No, what we are going to tell you does not refer to the plot of some Hollywood movie about gambling (although it is not a bad idea) . The card game involves analysis and strategies that few players master, but in some cases they handle it so well that they find space in other businesses, such as investing on Wall Street .

Aaron Brown is another popular player at the WSOP, who combined his experience as a poker player with a 30-year career also working on Wall Street ; Brown even wrote The Poker Face of Wall Street , a book where he analyzes the things that the cards and the stock market share.

The key to a card player is risk analysis

Risk analysis is one of the characteristics that both disciplines share , measuring how viable a bet is at the WSOP table or in a stock company. Also managing volatility is key in both , because knowing how to deal with uncertainty helps you make better decisions in both cases.

Something fundamental for poker and investments is knowing how to manage and keep a budget, choosing the bets correctly so that it grows and does not leave you in ruin. Of course, controlling your emotions must be something that cannot be lacking for both of you, preventing an outburst from throwing everything away.

Mastering the art of poker is not something that is learned overnight, and investing on Wall Street does not happen overnight. In the meantime you can start to develop your card skills at the Casino , perhaps in one of those you will jump to the stock market with what you have learned in our games.

Learn to bluff in poker games!

One of the most common strategies in card games is to bluff your opponents with your move.

Playing poker seems simple , but there is an art behind it to do it in the best way. The chance is the main factor , but your strategy bluff also influences enough when play.

One of the most common tactics is ‘deception’ , of which we have already explained the most common mistakes . Therefore, now we want you to become an expert on the subject, so we bring you the best tips to learn how to bluff like an expert.

Take into account the number of players

The number of opponents in the game will determine how feasible is your strategy ‘ bluffing ‘ . The more players participate in the hand being played, the greater the risk of not getting good results , since at least some of them will have a valuable play.

Measure the bets

Continuous gambling without having something worthwhile will cause your opponents to discover your style of play, thus putting you at their mercy. Make bluff should be a subtle tactic , so they do not identify how often you try.

Understand your opponents well

A few days ago we explained some of the types of players that exist at poker tables ; Knowing well what type your rivals are will help you analyze if it is worth risking a ‘bluff’ or if it is better to play it safe.

Don’t bluff with either hand 

It is true that the intention of the bluff is to make it appear that you have a better play than it really is, but it does not imply that you bet with any hand. In these cases it is better to bluff with a pair of cards that have a chance of completing a straight or hitting a good pair.

Understand how they see you at the table 

If you already grabbed a couple of times in the bluff and did not have a result, your opponents will know that your bet may be based on a false hand and will not hesitate to attack you . For this reason it is better to do it sporadically, so that they do not identify a pattern in your game. 

Balance your budget

Although it seems obvious, not measuring your bets can cause what you had arranged to bet to go overboard. If you don’t really have a competitive hand, avoid betting big from the start or calling when your opponents do , to avoid affecting your budget.
