6 Business Skills You Can Learn from Poker Pros

What business skills can you learn from poker professionals?

What business skills can you learn from poker professionals?

When poker tournaments across the world started to offer huge prizes, and the online marketplace made the game more accessible, poker became a promising financial endeavour for a handful of hopefuls who were looking to make it big. Since then, thousands of players made their living playing poker, and most of them did it with hard work, determination and an understanding of business. Professional poker players have a lot in common with successful businesspeople. Both use wise investment strategies and reserved cashflow management to grow their funds and turn pennies into pounds. Both deal with high-pressure situations and the demands of rapid decision-making. Online players can spend 12 hours in a row at the tables — that’s as long a day as an executive! If you’re looking to start a business or are already running one now, here are six business skills you can learn from poker pros.

Risk-Reward Strategy

Risk-reward strategy is crucial in poker, investment and business.

Risk-reward strategy is crucial in poker, investment and business.

Both poker players and business owners must take calculated risks by evaluating potential gains against potential losses. Both poker and investment decisions require the same principles. Players should only make bets that they calculate, using maths and logic to be statistically profitable in the long-run. If the odds are in your favour, then you can make the play. Making the right plays results in positive expected value. This concept is simple in a way: you must make decisions based on what will make you money in the long run, even if the decision doesn’t necessarily lead to the desired outcome each time. In poker, a pair of aces beats a lower pair around 70 – 80 percent of the time. That means the bet is profitable to make. Sometimes, you will lose your money, but most of the time, you will win the bet. The same is true in investment, or in any risk-reward business decision. You need to weigh up all the factors and then take risks when the odds are high enough in your favour.

Bankroll Management

Another component of professional poker is bankroll management. It’s a method for regulating funds so that you don’t go bust, and it’s based on not putting your eggs in one basket. In poker, as in business, it’s critical not to spend all your cash at once and put yourself in a bad situation. The pros recommend that you spend no more than 5 percent of your available bankroll (your poker funds) on a single game, and some would say the percentage should be much less. It depends on the game, but the lesson is always the same: if you risk it all on one move, even if the odds are in your favour, you could lose everything, so don’t do it! By spreading the risk across many areas and over time, you reduce your chances of significant financial decline. For poker players, this means spreading their bankroll over hundreds of lower-stakes games rather than going for broke on one. For investors, this means diversifying portfolios and risking amounts that you can afford to lose. Small business owners can think about bankroll management as quite similar to cash flow management. Money spent, and money received should be balanced, and investing everything in fast growth is rarely a clever and stable solution. Build slowly using funds from business profits.

Master the ABCs

Poker players study the game to understand the fundamental mechanics behind the cards and betting. They must know the hand values and percentages as well as the expected returns in any given situation (of which there are millions). They must know when to make bets and what it means to ‘check’. They must also understand the dynamics of blind structures. There’s a lot going on when it comes to poker, and anyone who understands these components already has a significant advantage over players who don’t know a flush from a straight.

It’s the same in business. Anyone with the right resources can build a business, but it takes hard work and determination, and you won’t get anywhere without an understanding of the fundamental concepts and components at work in your company. So, learn what you can about customer relations, cost structures, revenue streams and business plans. The more you can learn, the more advantage you will have.

Adjusting to Other Players

Poker players come in many different shapes, sizes and styles, and so adjusting to each player is a key element of the game.

Poker players come in many different shapes, sizes and styles, and so adjusting to each player is a key element of the game.

Professional poker players don’t just follow the ABCs of the game. Optimal poker strategy suggests that you should adjust to the other players at the table. That’s achieved by observing other player’s tendencies and analysing their stats to build a strategy of how to play against them. Then adapt the fundamental concepts to work out the most profitable moves given the broader situation.

Once you understand the ABCs of business, it’s equally important that you adjust yourself according to your position in the marketplace. Who are your main competitors? What is the demographic of your target market? What resources do you have available and what slice of the pie do you need to get? These factors will all inform your decision-making, and adapting to your circumstances will give you the best chance of survival and growth.

Bluffing is Overrated

New poker players often think that bluffing is the key to winning the game. But the truth is decent players will see this coming a mile off and call you up on your bluff. It’s more critical to play solid starting hands and make bets when you have the best hand. You will gain most of your value by getting paid off when players have a weaker hand, and there are only certain situations (against a specific type of player) in which bluffing is profitable.

The same is true in business. Even more so. Honesty is the best policy and delivering on the promises you make will lead to higher customer satisfaction than trying to bluff your way through life. Whether you are offering online marketing or running an underwater restaurant, your customer needs to be happy for you to stay in business. For this to happen, you need to play your best hand and offer your customer the best value — bluffing isn’t going to cut it!

Emotional Control

In any high-pressure situation, you will need a decent amount of emotional control. Both poker and business demand consistent decision-making over risks and rewards, but worst of all, the outcomes are always part chance. You can do everything right, and the cards won’t fall your way, not today anyway. That’s when you need to remember to keep calm and continue to make profitable decisions based on solid bankroll management. Stick to the principles and keep emotions in check so that they don’t rule over your decisions and make matters worse. Keep cool, and you will be a business pro!

Top 10 Memes of Year 2017 that Drove the Internet Crazy!!!

memes

Well, If I say “Social sites being our second home”, I think I might be right. Almost all of our time is dedicated to the social media. One new notification arrives and we keep checking our phones so eagerly as if there would be a text showing, “Congrats you have won 1 crores”!!. hahaha..

When we are so much into it, how can memes not affect us? We go through a meme and we feel so connected as it was made for us. By reading every other or so, we keep tagging our friends. Let us just have a look at memes of 2017 and 18, that broke the desi internet.

1.“Kya Aapne Kabhi Online Hotel Search Kiya Hai??”!!!!

online-hotel-search-kiya-hai

And yes that’s the trivago guy, who just keeps us asking this question all the time. If you got me right, mark my words, “All the time”. Even the trivago guy Abhinav Kumar himself knows that he is being memed now. The best part is he himself keeps sharing the memes made over him.

 Here’s something you can’t stop laughing..

Relative: Humlog aa rahe hai tumhare ghar pe do hafte k liye

Me: Kya aapne Kabhi online hotel search Kiya hai??? Hahahha..

2.“Ye Bik Gayi Hai Gormint”!!!

 

gayi-hai-gormintt

Remember that old lady with her old regular specs and a dupatta over his head keeping abusing our so-called system. But not all that got noticed, people bookmarked one line from the whole statement. I.e. “Ye Bik Gayi hai Gormint”. The funniest part is she pronounced that way and we accepted the same way.

“Gormint” and not “Government”

And the line, “Yeh saare milke hume bewakoof bana rahe hai” just grabbed even “Gormint’s” attention too.

3. And here Comes the Selfie Queen

selfie-queen

“Selfie maine le li aaj”

“Selfie maine le li aaj”

Can you please stop her from singing?, “Kuch bhi gaati hai yaar tu”, and what not people said about her singing. But how can someone stop the selfie queen aka Dhinchak Pooja. And the drama was not over. She even entered the Big Boss House. I mean a massive respect for the Big Boss makers.

4. Aunty Ki Ghanti

Aunty-ki-Ghanti

I just can’t get over the things that what is the reason behind so much success of such an awful song. I mean at one hand you keep complaining about the lyrics all the time and then a notification flashes,” Rapper Om Prakash’s Aunty ki Ghanti crossed one million views over the internet”.

One question I really want to ask my online audience, “Bhai chahte kya ho tum???”

5. The Sulochan Boy

the-sulochan-boy

Ok…Naam Kya hai tera??

And here a flying answer comes,”Kamleeeesh”. The video was all about a 13-year-old boy who was addicted to the drugs. He had them in the form of a solution tube which he called “Sulochan”. However, most of the internet crowd was worried of the fact “how small kids are being addicted to these drugs because of the poverty level”.

6. Kangana Ranaut on Aap Ki Adalat

kangana ranaut on aap ki adalat

The controversy between the great actor Hrithik Roshan and Kangana Ranaut was so much into the air at a time. But after the actress’ interview at Aap Ki Adalat, it started taking the form of the memes.

And the memes were like, Indian moms saying to their child, “Tum aur tumhare pitaji k paas toh duniya bhar ka paisa hai” and what not.

7. Link your Aadhaar by 31st December

tiger-zinda-hai

Well, 2017 mobile users are well aware of the notification “ Link your Aadhaar by 31st December”. From bank accounts to mobile numbers to your Paytm account you were asked to link everything with Aadhaar.

Most of us were like, “Saans lelu??? Ya use bhi aadhaar se link karau??hahaha..

And the hilarious one was after the arrival of the movie “Tiger Zinda Hai” and the tiger was asked to link his aadhaar card and PAN card with his bank account. Isn’t it like what!!!

8. And one of the Great Show KBC

kbc

Agree or not, the tone of Mr. Amitabh Bachchan from the SONY Tv’s show became the internet sensation over a couple of weeks. If you are still not getting me, just go through these.

  • Me after studying 33 seconds

“Aur yaha lenge hum Chota sa break”

  • When she rejects you by saying she doesn’t want to be in a relationship right now, and she gets a bf next week.

I was like, “Bahut hi umdaa kheli aap, taaliyaan bajti rehni chahiye”.

  • Abhishek: Papa, What are your views on my acting career?

Big B: “Aap chahe toh quit kar sakte hai”

I am sure u got me.

9. Koi Nahi ayega

koi-nhi-aaega

And the meme is all about when you invite your friends at a Jain’s wedding. Your reply is like, “Mai likh k deta hun..koi nahi ayega”. Well, the dialogue was famous after the Oscar nominated movie Newton.

10. Nagar Palika Ko Bulao

nagar-palika

Last year a video came into the scene where a boy was complaining about the potholes of his city and within a second he himself falls into it. And from then the meme became viral.

The words were like “Pehle gaddha surakshit karao, Nagar Palika ko Bulao”.

I bet these were something that really made us fall for the social media.

8 Upcoming Movies 2018 with Strong Female Characters

upcoming-bollywood-movies

We live in an extremely male dominated society and our movies are a reflection of that society. Going by this definition we shouldn’t wonder why our films have always portrayed women as “Abla Naari”. So it’s given they were to say dialogues like “Bhagwan ke liye mujhe chhod do” and all. That was not it!

Our strong ladies were also portrayed as “Sanskari Ladki”. A girl who listens to parents, sings bhajans, bear the humiliation and husband’s torture and says “Mera Pati mera devta hai”. Thankfully, the time has changed now!

Today’s women are much more liberated, modern, and speaks her own mind. And that’s reflected in today’s film too. With movies like Piku, Tumhari Sulu, Padman, Pink, Queen, Chak De India!!, English Vinglish and of course Dangal, the picture is changing. This year too you can witness some power back performances of finest actresses of our time.

What’s more? Now, you can watch these amazing movies at a reduced price. Save on movie tickets with Bookmyshow discount coupons! So let’s take a look at what you must watch this year:

Paytm has been touching social issues in its recent ads, from an earlier ad where a relative transfer a few Paytm bucks to this ad which shows the dream of every common man in India, Paytm has been glowing a step ahead in terms of brand projection while connecting itself to social dreams.

Here, in this new ad, Paytm has shown what a cashless nation would be. More or less, what a cashless & corruption-less nation would be. There are 3 parts in the ads. First part shows a typical Sharmaji-Guptaji Govt. official stereotype taking ‘vada-paw’ as a token of friendship, not as a bribe. Second part shows a traffic police constable and the third part goes with the donation scene in an Indian education institute, where the donation actually is a box full of books.

The ad is touching and is successful in propagating the brand proposition (which is Paytm Wallet) taking the date of release as Indian Independence Day. have a look at the ad :

10 Reasons to Recharge Online

Once we use to stand up in front of the counter of the ‘recharge wale ki dukaan’ and ask for recharges tarrifs and new offers. The shopkeeper would indicate the big chart hanging on the walls or may recommend us personally as per our budget. For some, the days like this are gone. For some, the recharge shops are an alternative while the internet is not around. For some, it is like “What is online recharge”. Still, there are 10 strong reasons why one should recharge online.

1. Anytime :

You can recharge the mobile anytime you wish for. Be it 3 in the morning or 11 in the night. An online user have the accessibility to online recharge 24X7.

2. Anywere :

You can recharge from anywhere (if you have a smartphone of-cource). Place is not a limitation. You can recharge your sim card while on a roof, while commuting or even while having lunch.

3. No need to search for shops :

You need not to ask “yaha recharge ki dukaan kahan hai?” (is there a recharge shop around here?). Be it any new town, city or even state, you need not to locate for a recharge shop. All you need to locate is your phone.

4. privacy of your number :

recharge online

You have an option not to provide your number to the recharge shop owner. Your number stays with you and in the safe hands of technically advance recharge sites.

5. There are offers:

There are various offers which can lead you to have some extra savings while recharging online. For example : You can get some GV while paying bills.

6.  It is your own digital wallet :

You can recharge anytime with your digital wallet. You can first submit some amount of money in the wallet and then can pay through it. You can also use this wallet for the offline payments as well. Some petrol pumps and some of the auto-rickshaw are now integrated with paytm wallet payment.

7.  You can earn cashback :

Not only this, you can earn cashback on your recharges while recharging online. This is one of the most lucrative feature of the whole online recharge processing spectrum.

8. You can pay bills from the same recharge destination :

Majority of the sites are providing the option of paying bills through the cashback you’ve earned in your wallet. This is really great as it automatically gives you an option of having the money in your wallet from recharge cashback and utilising it for the process of the bill payments.

9. It is very simple and easy :

Yes indeed, the simplest one is Paytm though. The process of online shopping, once registered in the protal of your choice, seems like a child’s play. it would hardly take around 40 seconds to pay online for your mobile recharge if you have your card saved.

10. Make your own decisions :

You can see all of the available offers, recharge coupons and all the plans for prepaid and postpaid payments for your operator type. This would inturn help you to make a decision based on the provided amount you have and the need of your usage.

This could be the next move of Online Shopping Portals

Shopping is not just randomly buying stuff, it is an experience. The experience is something which cannot be crunched in words but is a essence of presence at a particular moment. Experience is so great that it could change business models of big companies and can force companies to bring back app only model. The all catchy, smooth and engaging shopping portals we see today are designed to provide a good experience. This experience could be the key of the nest transition of the ecommerce companies in India. YepMe-Store

What we are talking about?

We are talking shopping outlets with of the brands like Flipkart, Snapdeal, Jabong, Shopclues etc. Amazon is the least expected portal for this concept. If you think that it is not possible then you are wrong as companies like Yepme, TataClick are already working in the same model. We are talking about offline shopping of products

The  problem and the solution

We are talking about the solution of worst possible online shopping problem. The problem is that in India, people like to see and feel things before they buy them. This is not a small issue, I as a shopper sometime hesitate before making any purchase online for products like clothing and apparels. However, if I can buy them under a banner of Flipkart while touching and getting a fell of it, it would be a go-go from my side. Therefore, the proper trap of Indian retail could be trapped in a proper way. The companies could assemble the power of both online and offline channels of sales.

Is it a contradiction of Ecommerce title?

No, anything which transact online is ecommerce. Haven’t we bought a Pizza Online? Aren’t there are outlets as well? The reason for this is simple; “serving the customer in a particular domain as the way they want it”. Flipkart and Snapdeal are likely to lead the whole scenario and will boast the concept.

Would there be any Deals & Offer?

Yes, infact more than now. The products under the brands like Flipkart & Snapdeal would be based on Market Basket Analysis and the deals and Offers would be based on that. Image source
