Pocket Q-School
by Karl Yu, WinnerOnline
20 December, 2007


There is a reason that the phrase “practice makes perfect” is a cliché; it can be used in almost every situation.

Practicing shots from the charity stripe will increase a basketball player’s free throw percentage.

The more a QB in football practices with a team, the better he learns the offensive system.

Solving more equations will help a student build a stronger foundation in mathematics.

Even poker pro Daniel Negreanu is constantly telling readers of his syndicated column to play as much as possible.

In a November 30, 2007 Card Shark column entitled Raising Questions: Practice pre-flop tactics for No-Limit success, Kid Poker put it best saying, “As with most things in life, practice makes perfect in poker, too.”

While practicing on a medium such as the internet can help players cut their teeth in poker; there is no substitute for live play.

Getting advice from someone well-versed in poker can be helpful as well.

Heck, Johnny Chan even taught Jamie Gold a few things about the fine art of Hold’em prior to the 2006 World Series of Poker.

Poker professionals don’t share their wisdom with just anyone, but a lesson from one can expand the scope of your knowledge and game.
