Poker pearl #20
[Above is a scan of the cover of the June 3 Card Player magazine.]
One of the regular columnists for Card Player magazine is Roy Cooke. You can tell he plays mostly live from what he writes here:
When observing opponents, try to determine their weaknesses and what plays will work best to take advaantage.
Poker is a people game. Learn an individual opponent's tendencies; think about how you can best play against those tendencies.
When you are correctly making different plays in similar situations against different opponents, you are on your way to developing the poker "feel" that will take your game to a new level.
