How do you train for poker?


Poker is a mental sport.  Training for a mental sport is similar to a physical sport.  You break the game down into pieces and get repetitions in on those things.

In basketball you may practice free-throws for 30 minutes per day.  In poker you can practice memorizing the correct raise-first-in ranges.  You can practice playing against check/raises with something like Simple GTO Trainer.  

In sports you’ll often watch film and break down areas for improvement.  In poker you can record your online session or review a hand history and break down areas for improvement.

All sports have coaches.  In poker you can hire a poker professional to give you feedback on how you can improve.

External things like getting enough sleep, eating a healthy diet, mediating, journaling–these things will often improve performance for both physical and mental athletes.
