Four suits include Hearts, Spades, Diamonds, and Clubs. Poker hands are made of five cards and the highest hand is the one that wins.

But, how can one become a professional poker player? Here are a few tips that can help answer this question and guide through playing poker for real money.

Professional Poker Player
The key to playing poker professionally is to learn which hands to use.

Study the Game

Poker is a game that has to be studied before playing. Without study, one cannot stand a chance to win this game or become a professional poker player. As a first step, it is important to learn this game and understand the rules. It is beneficial to remember the rules of the game in order to be alert at all points while playing the game. There is an abundance of information on the net as far as the rules, strategies, and poker variants are concerned.

While researching the game, one must try and focus on how it can be played fairly. This tactic can go a long way in ensuring recurring wins. Poker in India can be learned and played on online platforms, especially if one is considering playing poker for real money.

Focus on Winning Hands

Over and above studying the game, the key to playing poker professionally is to learn which hands to use. This strategy can be mastered only with umpteen practice and focus. Professional poker players try to improvise on the timing of fold. While learning about playing various hands, one must refrain from playing all hands at once. The idea is to not try too hard for a win in each game. It is about learning in every game and then improvising.

Poker Strategy

As people get a grip of this game, the next step is to learn bluffing. It is considered one of the most important strategies in the game of poker. This can be used only once the game has been thoroughly understood. While professionals tend to use this strategy very rarely, they usually end up winning whenever it is put to good use. For new players, however, this strategy is meaningless because it could end up making the player lose the game. Overusing this strategy is not considered practical.

Alertness and Choice of Game

Staying alert about all actions around the poker table can be of great significance in being at the top of the game. One has to constantly know their position at every stage of the game. It is not possible to see the cards that other players carry, but it is possible to be observant at all times. The behaviour of other poker players across the table can tell a lot about their situation in the game. Poker players also tend to select different poker games in order to learn more tricks about the game.

Multitasking makes Teenagers feel both more positive as well as more negative about the main task they are trying to accomplish, says a new study.

The study, published in the journal Human Communication Research, found that when adolescents combined something they had to do (like homework) with media use (such as texting with friends), they said the homework was more rewarding, stimulating or pleasant.

But they also reported feeling more negative emotions about the homework, such as finding it more difficult or tiring.

“It suggests that Teenagers may be less likely to multitask if they already find their tasks rewarding,” said study co-author Zheng Wang, Professor at the Ohio State University in the US.

The study involved 71 adolescents aged 11 to 17 living in the Midwest. All participants reported their activities, both media-related and non-media related, three times a day for 14 days on a digital tablet device.

At each time point, they listed a main activity they were doing (such as homework or chores), and whether they were doing any media multitasking (such as texting or playing video games) at the same time.

For each main activity, they rated to what extent they felt seven emotional responses (three positive and four negative).

The results showed that the teens in the study were media multitasking about 40 per cent of the time that they were performing other activities.

According to the researchers, both positive and negative emotions initially increased when participants said they were multitasking.
