Auto-Lotto Processor

I have had the time recently to play a few live, Auto-Lotto Processor Review poker tournaments. While I've had one nice cash of $3,000, there have been three times where I ended up just out of the money finishing 21st and 24th twice.I have been so intent on playing ABC poker with a few moves thrown in, I have forgotten the need to play against myself as well.What does it mean to "Play against the player and not your cards?"As you know, I believe one of the most important keys in winning poker is to play against the player rather than just playing your cards.One way to simply define "playing against the player" is to evaluate what range of hands you think your opponent holds and playing in a way to beat him by using his bets, his table image and the board against him--that is, representing a hand that can get your opponent to fold.A simple example: A player who raises pre-flop way too often and always follows with a c-bet when his hand doesn't improve on the flop. You call this player in position, take the flop heads-up, and when he bets the flop, you raise.It's easier said then done. And I think it's easier when you are playing live and the stacks are deep.What does it mean to "Play against yourself?"I think all poker players get in a habit of how to play good poker. I would say that players are better at pre-flop play than ever before. They know the "right" cards to play pre-flop in position and bet sizing. However, these same players often end up waiting forever for a big hand.These players need to play against themselves. That is, they need to mix it up and play poker in a style that is counter to their table image.
