January 1, 2018 | Leave a comment Have you ever noticed how male and female poker players tend to have different playing styles even in free poker games? This may not be something that a lot of players are able to pick up on. However, I have noticed it a great deal from playing at different tables both free poker games and high stakes, online and casino. My observation is that female poker players tend to be a little more careful than male players. Women tend to play hands less frequently, and just take down small pots in order to keep above water. In comparison men are often more aggressive, take more risks and chase larger pots. Although it may be a biased opinion, I feel strongly towards my claim and have no doubts about what I’ve learned, as I say, these are observations taken from many free poker tournaments online and paid Internet and casino tables. Another observation is that it can be easier to push a woman off of a pot than a male player. Women tend to avoid the larger pots as I’ve mentioned already. That’s why it is often easier to buy a pot off of a female player than against a male. Now before anyone gets angry I’m not taking anything away from the female game with that point, I just feel that women tend to play more of a conservative game which can also be an advantage to them. This is because men tend to jump the gun a little bit. They’ll try to force hands that aren’t meant to be. Not to say that only they do it, but once again, it’s just something I’ve noticed from playing myself. It seems to be especially prevalent in free poker games and tournaments where despite the lack of risk the women play a more sensible game with a more strategic objective as opposed to an all-in and hope mentality.

As intelligent “cut above the average” players of either sex we must always strive to learn from our mistakes, practice at free poker games to improve and accept that we may have certain gender related traits that we should aim to harness to our advantage.
