See the way millions of offline poker players used the time while being closed due to coronavirus. Take some notes of what ground casino players learnt and did when poker rooms were closed.
This year was a total mess. Covid-19 shut down the entire world at a certain time this spring and thankfully, online players were not left without any options whether for some slot experience, poker rooms or even sport betting, because although the sport events were suspended, bookies were kind enough to provide the audience lots of eSpors bets.
Unfortunately, though, offline gamblers, including poker enthusiasts who would never replace the authentic land-based casino atmosphere for anything else in the world, were kind of limited. They had no access to casinos. Some countries haven’t opened their offline poker rooms yet. What did (and still do) all of these players? How did the offline poker players survive during the Covid-19 pandemic situation this spring?
At first, you should know that they did not just survive, but make a couple of great things not to waste time, but instead to invest it in useful or even better – relaxing – activities. Naturally, all of them are related with the top favorite game in gambling sphere – poker. Here are the things they did and that you might do, as well whether for diversification or as an alternative during an eventual second Covid-19 outbreak:
- They simply finally decided to try online poker style. No matter how stubborn these players used to be before, once coronavirus deprived them from an actual chance to play offline card games with real money, online poker platforms became as attractive as never before.
- They made a review of their play. We all know how important it is to track your activity, consider your mistakes and even reconsider your strategy in poker. But let’s face it – the truth is that we usually don’t have enough time for this useful chore. In the outbreak many poker players had finally received the chance to make such a review and learn from old mistakes, as well as think about some new tactics they might follow later.
- They decided to improve their game by diving in those old but gold poker forums. In the past, such forums were quite popular. Even the offline players visited them to learn some interesting theories, tips and facts about their favorite card game and later to put them into force in a real ground casino.
- They did some work on their poker mindset. It’s another important, but usually neglected due to lack of enough free time task for skill improvement. Offline poker players claim that during the covid-19 outbreak this spring they finally succeeded in making a couple of changes in this direction.
What did you do? How did you take the benefits of more free time, including time at home to improve your poker performance during the coronavirus isolation? We hope you did enough and we would not have another, second season of this outbreak…
