Get Some Backing
Some players get some backing from either companies or individuals. The backing helps them make the step-up to the next level and gives them the confidence to take on better poker players.
Lets face it all sports have coaches and some even have a whole team that will help their players from psychologists to physiotherapists. So why not poker?
Sometimes we just need a little help from outside, someone who will look from a different angle and tell us what to work on to improve. Thats if you will listen to it of course. So if you are a good poker player and want the extra help to fast-track your progress to the top tables, look around for someone who will back you.
Let me just warn you though, its not for everyone, some people don’t like playing with other people’s money and get nervous. Then again you also get people who don’t play well when the high buy-ins and bets are coming from their own pockets.
