Today one of my poker-coaching clients emailed me about cashing in a micro poker tournament freeroll on a small online site where we are affiliates. She put the "Laughed Out Loud" shorthand after her message… suggesting that the win meant very little because the payout was insignificant.
This was my response to her:
"Cashing in a micro poker tournament is more important than you may realize.
This is part of the process of separating yourself from the results and playing your best poker game. It is a vital part of having a winning poker mindset.
Since these are tiny payouts, it is human nature to discount the value of each decision. When in fact, each decision at the poker table is a business decision.
It is part of developing the habit of playing winning poker."
When in doubt about any action at the poker table, remember my motto:
If you can't raise, don't call.
