Poker PlayersPoker is often described as a game where you pace yourself and choose the best opportunities and bet large sums of money only when you are sure you can win. However, these hypotheses are rather faulty, since into all these calculations comes the human factor. Poker is not played against a machine, even in the online casinos , but against real people.
Players who keep their cards close and don't take chances are know as Rocks. These are the players who will never bluff, or take chances, or play for high stakes. They are also the least fun to play with, since Poker should be a dynamic game with permutations and changes and excitement. In addition, the player that wins this game will earn very little, since when none of the players gamble with a lot of money, then the payoff at the end of the hand is very low.
On the other hand, there are those players that are known as Fish. These players are those who don't know how to play at all and are very bad players. They bet all there money in a single hand, they take ridiculous chances and they lose most of the time very quickly. The experienced poker player would do well to avoid playing against these players, since the game would end in less than a single hand.
