In this blog post we will cover the Mavericks of Poker, Osmosis and Poker Strategy Software.
Many top poker players are larger than life. They are true mavericks of the game with colorful personalities with fun nicknames that people enjoy watching. They are risk takers who are endearing, entertaining and accessible.
Names such as Daniel Negreanu (Kid Poker), Justin Bonomo (ZeeJustin), Phil Ivey (The Tiger Woods of Poker), Phil Hellmuth (The Poker Brat), Doyle Brunson (Texas Dolly), Antonio Esfandiari (The Magician), Gus Hansen (The Great Dane) and more are continually being talked about in poker circles. Many of the top players write books, have training videos, create blogs, tweets, have Facebook pages, and more.
Osmosis is the process of gradual or
unconscious assimilation of knowledge.
Most poker players watch poker on TV and on YouTube and play online games on their computers and cell phones. Many read blogs, articles, listen to podcasts and check out websites. Yet a high percentage don’t have an organized plan to get better.
They learn the game primarily at the tables. A big part of their table experience comes in the form of osmosis from the best players. Players sitting at a poker table for hours can’t help but learn a lot about the game from those who are the serious players.
The serious players read books, take training courses, watch videos to learn, study the greats, and continually strive to improve their game. And, they talk at the table. Valuable information is imparted during this table talk. Sometimes freely, and sometimes by accident.
Either way, information spilling occurs continuously at poker tables. Those who are attentive pick up a great deal of knowledge by playing at the same tables as the experts.
Osmosis is alive and well in poker!
