Some of the common mistakes players do while playing poker are: Playing too many hands, going with straights all the time, always preferring small pairs, unnecessary excitement. Poker is a game of thought but not a game of rapid action. Most of the amateur poker players try to play quick hands and loose game within less time. Playing too many hands will not benefit them. When a player plays every hand his opponents realize him as a poor player and try to deceive him.
Good poker players know that fresh players always play more straights. It is advisable for fresh players to stop going for a straight, unless they are dealt with one. Beginners of poker generally go for small pairs. Going for small pairs can make your opponent recognize you as a weak player. Never get excited in poker. Poker is a game which depends on bluffing; there are many cheaters around you who realize that you have a strong hand. Excitement later leads you to utter disappointment. Most of the novice players love face cards. When a player gets excited about his card, he won’t be able to concentrate on the table. Player’s excitement gives way to cheater to turn the game to his side.
