Poker Players

Our poker players pages are brought to you by The Angry Counselor, who has graciously taken time from his anger management therapy in order to teach us about the psychology of poker. His articles cover a broad range of topics that help players understand what is going on inside their head as well as those of other players. You will also find that his observations and analysis are just as relevant for playing online poker as they are in live games. These articles are an excellent read from start to finish. You WILL be satisfied, OR ELSE!
