Poker Players Disassociating Money

When playing online poker for real money remember you only have one life! Look after it wisely. Is it good to disassociate yourself to your money?

 

 

It’s Money Honey

Play Slots at Grand Reef CasinoThere used to be a game called Wonderboy. It was an arcade game that used to enter young children’s minds and take over. Kids would bunk off school and steal money from their parent’s wallets so they could play the game. The classrooms were empty and the arcades were full. When you lost a life playing Wonderboy you knew it was not a real life. It was just part of the game and something that another coin would fix.

A lot of the greatest poker players out there today have a gaming background. A lot of the weaker poker players also have a gaming background. One thing that they share is the ability to make decisions and to make them quickly.  In poker, unlike Wonderboy, you do not lose lives but instead lose chips. Those chips represent a sum of money. There are some players who do not feel the right emotional connection to the chips. For those players the chips are virtual lives like in the game Wonderboy. There is a disassociation with money.

For these types of players disassociating yourself from the money can be a good thing and it can be a curse. It is good because a disassociation from money allows you to make the correct decisions better. For others it is a curse because your basic bankroll management principles just do not function normally. You cannot move up or down as your money fluctuates because you do not feel the pain that a loss of money should inject into your life.
