What Does The Future Hold For Online Poker in The United States of America?

Every since the fated day of April 15th, 2011, dubbed as “Black Friday”, there has been much speculation concerning the future of online poker in the United States of America.

What Can You Learn About Human Psychology From a Poker Game?

Having played poker competitively for the last few years, I have developed an understanding of how a variety of different poker players think and act at a poker table. No two opponents are exactly the same, but many poker players share very similar traits, especially the long-term losing players.

When losing, a lot of weaker opponents tend to “chase their losses” hoping to break-even, but in the process, most of these players ultimately lose more money because they fail to regain the focus needed to win in the long-run.
