Poker has increased in popularity since the beginning of the 20th century and has gone from being primarily a recreational activity confined to small groups of enthusiasts to a widely popular activity, both for participants and spectators, including online, with many professional players and multi-million-dollar tournament prizes. Poker has always been a game of chance, a game of probability, a game of anticipation and a game of nerves, Opines World Famous Business Strategist Hirav Shah.


Poker was developed sometime during the early 19th century in the United States. Since those early beginnings, the game has grown to become an extremely popular pastime worldwide.

About Game

Poker is any of a number of card games in which players wager over which hand is best according to that specific game’s rules in ways similar to these rankings. Often using a standard deck, poker games vary in deck configuration, the number of cards in play, the number dealt face up or face down, and the number shared by all players, but all have rules which involve one or more rounds of betting.

In most modern poker games, the first round of betting begins with one or more of the players making some form of a forced bet (the blind or ante). In standard poker, each player bets according to the rank they believe their hand is worth as compared to the other players. The action then proceeds clockwise as each player in turn must either match (or “call”) the maximum previous bet, or fold, losing the amount bet so far and all further involvement in the hand. A player who matches a bet may also “raise” (increase) the bet. The betting round ends when all players have either called the last bet or folded. If all but one player folds on any round, the remaining player collects the pot without being required to reveal their hand. If more than one player remains in contention after the final betting round, a showdown takes place where the hands are revealed, and the player with the winning hand takes the pot.

With the exception of initial forced bets, money is only placed into the pot voluntarily by a player who either believes the bet has positive expected value or who is trying to bluff other players for various strategic reasons. Thus, while the outcome of any particular hand significantly involves chance, the long-run expectations of the players are determined by their actions chosen on the basis of probability, psychology, and game theory.

Astro-Strategist, Business Consultant and Astro Guru, Hirav Shah shares below as-to how to be a winner in such an uncertain game of Poker !

Luck and Fortune in Poker

The first thing is to understand the nature of poker. A lot people try their hand at poker, might win a few sessions and then start losing eventually and then label poker to be nothing but gambling how “unlucky” they always get, and how lucky their opponents are :

A) Poker is like any other job. It’s boring sometimes, even for winning players. People who are great at poker, treat it like any other job. They need to play long hours, while they are consistently maintaining focus at the tables. These players play an insane amount of hands, (it’s called putting in volume) for them to show consistent profits. At so many points in your career, you will feel burnt out, demotivated etc.

B) Only around 15% of the players are long term winners.You need to understand this. And make every effort to not end up in the rest of the losing players.

C) You need to have more Emotional Quotient (EQ), than IQ to be successful. Poker is a game that drains you mentally, plays with your emotions , puts your patience and every feeling to test, the more you are in control of your emotions , the greater player you will eventually be. After a stage, almost every player knows the odds, knows the math, the basic strategies etc.

D) Respect Poker, and accept that the game is brutally cruel, than anything you have encountered before. This is where most of the players fail. Poker isn’t chess. The person with better skill doesn’t always win. You will get unlucky from time to time, for the rest of your poker career. You will lose pots that you were supposed to win 96% of the time.
