扑克 Playing Poker With Tunnel Vision

You may have heard of the term “tunnel vision” before. It is where you see nothing but what is ahead of you. The term can be applied to online poker as well.



Let's explain a little bit more about poker tunnel vision. Online poker players are very often so focused on their own poker hands that they can't see any potential for loss.



They often don't read the board properly and don't understand what other players may be holding. Online poker players with tunnel vision end up losing huge pots because they think they have a big hand that can't be beaten. They don't realize that another hand could be better and end up losing a lot of money. Tunnel vision is something that you don't want to have when playing poker.



One example of tunnel vision that many casino poker players show is when they get dealt an ace. It doesn't make any difference what their kicker is, what their position is at the table, what the board reads, or any other factor. They see the ace and begin to bet.  These online poker players become so focused on that ace and trying to hit another one that they forget everything else at the table.



They think the ace is the key card for them. The same thing happens to many players when they catch connected cards or suited cards. It also happens with virtually any pair. These players only see what is in their own poker hand and often ignore what is on the board.



Tunnel vision in online poker is so very common and also so very hard to get away from. It is so easy to look at your own hand and ignore the rest of the board and the rest of the players at the table. What you need to do is become more adept at looking at everything else. Some players will focus on the board and on the other players before they even look at their own hand. That is one good idea.



Another thought is to try and read your opponent's hand instead of focusing on your own. If you can figure out what your opponent is holding then it will keep you from becoming too focused on your own hand.



The good news about tunnel vision is that you can take advantage of players that have it. These players will be very easy to read and you can take money from them on a regular basis. Tunnel vision players make only the obvious plays and you can outplay them nearly every time if you are not one of those players yourself.
