Looking Back on 2020
What a year 2020 has been. For all of us around the world, things look very different than they did even one year ago, and the poker world has been no different. Of course, the main change is that we’ve spent much more time playing online poker. With card rooms closed and home games canceled, digital poker has been a true lifeline on the game we love.
If you haven’t already, we highly recommend keeping track of data about your games and performance. For instance, you could try the PokerTracker software. The end of the year is a great time to review your data, look at trends, and try to find places for you to improve your game.
Do you know how many chips you won or lost? How many games you played? How many hours you spent at the table or studying? These stats will be a great tool for improving your game going forward.
Questions For Reviewing Your Poker Year
One of the most important questions that you should ask yourself is what you learned this year. What skills did you improve? How did you grow as a poker player? Maybe there’s some concepts that you’ve mastered, some spots that you’ve studied, or some mental leaks you’ve plugged.
Now it’s time to look at the other side of the coin: what did you struggle with? Were there any scenarios that came up that caused you a lot of pain? Did you keep losing chips in a certain situation? Take a good hard look at this, because this is the areas where you’re going to look to improve in 2021.
Other Spots to Review
There’s a lot more to poker than just playing cards, especially when you consider the psychological and mental game. That’s why we want to take a holistic view of the year and ask: what other gains did you make? What other things did you struggle with? Have you noticed any correlation between other life events and your poker winnings?
The Pokerrrr 2 team is happy that you’re with us, and we hope that you and your loved ones are staying healthy and safe throughout the holiday season and into 2021.
See you at the poker table!
