Casino Games — Poker Intelligent Component — Part Three

Similar advantage can be also achieved in poker. To the position advantage in poker we can refer the factors of your position with relation to your opponents, the accessibility to varied membership and the number of opponents continuing the contest, your aggression, the size of opponents’ stacks and so on. From all of the martial arts disciplines of poker the most important is the creation and realization of position advantage. Here it is as important as with chess.

In conclusion is an intelligent analytic effort exists both in chess and in poker but they are not alike as the position advantage differs in quality.

The third type of an intelligent effort is associated with the analysis of the part of a game situation which is not associated with the game process itself. This type includes taking into account the psychological peculiarities of the duel.

Strictly speaking, this psychological element is not as trusted in chess, mainly because of the game information which is fully open to both opponents.

In poker the psychological element is essential indeed. It provides almost the half of success of the player. The restricted type of information in poker makes the players only deducing it and it can be done only by noticing your opponent. And here you meet a great opportunity to misinform or change him or create the psychological pressure upon him, and etc. We can name at least three facets of a psychological element that are often employed by experienced players.

Firstly, it is watching for the “signs” of an opponent and the “sings” that you send him. Secondly, one uses the continuous assessment of the psychological state of opponent. Finally, it’s possible to cause the psychological pressure upon the opponent in order to impose one’s will on him.

In summary the aforesaid we can say that both games are intelligent battles but their profiles differ. From the three part of an intelligent effort — logical, analytical and psychological, the most important ones in chess are the first two when it’s in poker the last two. But the analytical component rules in the games, which is quite understandable because these two games are intelligent.

And finally there is the last comparative remark. In chess, the role played by mindsets, is less important than the role of judgement and analytics. Chess in this sense appears as the game of spirit. Irrespective of the state of mind you must and can find the way to glory, with this way not depending on human feelings and emotions. Chess is the philosophy, the game of aristocrats of a soul.

In poker the role of mindsets is more important especially when compared with judgement. The meaning state of the opponent, their feelings and emotions not only influence the length of game but change the way to glory. In this sense poker is a game of plebeians, the battle of human interests.

Both, philosophers and plebeians, we are all human. Moreover, in our life in turns we become these and those. The games are beautiful, both are worth your attention under condition that your intelligence needs a check in a fight with equal ones, in other words, under condition that you are a individual.

In america active poker is not more than 100 years. In this regard if we make analogy between chess and poker we need to compare modern poker with the 19th century chess. Those were difficult times for chess players. Outstanding chess talents, which have received the general recognition in our times, had to spend sometimes all of their energy to find proponents who would agree to pay for such expensive and not perspective event as the world chess match for the champion title! But the reality was sad, any finder for the title had a chance to call for the world champion after fulfillment of one obligatory condition: he previously to pay prize money by himself, losing the great part of it in case of failing. If the pretender would loose such match, the lower income was almost guaranteed for him. Many years had passed before chess became the respectable and respected thing and the awful fates of losers became history.
