"Son, I've made a life out of readin' people's faces, and knowin' what their cards were by the way they held their eyes." - Kenny Rogers, The Gambler

Legendary Country & Western Singer, Kenny Rogers knew when to Hold’em and when to Fold’em that’s for sure but his words weren’t simply a story about a game of poker but how it is a metaphor for the game of life.

The nature of poker is such that we express a great deal about who we are, in the way that we play. The way we make decisions in a game, can also reflect the way that we make decisions in real life. Some of us maybe more spontaneous, suddenly deciding to go all in on a whim, while others may fold until they feel it’s exactly the right moment to play. In each case, one may deduce certain characteristics in each individual that may apply to the way they act in real life.

If you think about it, when you play online poker it trains you to be more analytical and think in terms of odds and possibilities. It actively encourages us to be patient and not go in hot headed, for there is the actual risk of losing real money. Even when you are playing free poker, you can learn more about how you play and apply that to how you approach decisions in your life.

When you play online poker, every card, every raise, every fold can tell you a little bit about yourself if you monitor your reactions and see how you react to the game as it unfolds. Don’t waste any more time, stay alert and you’ll learn more than just how to read the cards.
