Despite their long-term focus, they remain firmly grounded in the present. Instead of worrying about the past or dreaming of the future, they focus on the here and now. They constantly ask themselves, To maximize my EV, what must I do now?

Because poker is a power-oriented, predatory game, winners focus on power and minimize luck, justice, fairness, and personal relationships. They are constantly assessing everyone’s power, trying to get more of it, and deferring actions until the power balance favors them

Since power is always relative, winners naturally focus on other people. They constantly compare their opponents’ cards, skills, and styles to their own. They also try to understand their opponents’ motives, thoughts, and attitudes. Why are they acting this way? What do they want? How do they think? How can I get them to do what I want?

Because trying to focus on so many subjects is confusing, losers often oversimplify poker. They want a simple formula or a short list of do’s and don’ts. Winners reject such simplifications and consider complexities. They know that there are no simple formulas and that the right strategy depends on the situation. They ignore the attractively simplistic world of the losers and consider poker’s complex realities.
