If you are looking for an entertaining way to improve your poker skills then one of the best is to watch live poker tournaments on television. When you watch poker professionals playing on TV you can pick up all sorts of new skills, such as how to bet, how to bluff, which hands to fold on, which to raise on and more.
There are a whole slew of televised poker tournaments scheduled throughout the year. You can watch the World Series of Poker on ESPN, the World Poker Tour and High Stakes Poker on GSN and more. However, one of my personal favorite televised poker tournaments is just about to start – The National Heads-Up Poker Championship on NBC. The National Heads-Up Poker Championship happens every year. It is an invitation-only tournament with a $20,000 buy-in. Last year’s winner was Huckleberry Seed. This tournament will be televised on NBC in April and May.
The great thing about watching the pros play in televised tournaments is that you get all the information. You not only see the players’ body language and facial expressions and see whether they fold, call or raise, but you also get to see their cards. There is a hole camera for each player that shows you exactly what they’ve got in the hole so you can understand why they are playing the way they are. For me that is the ultimate thrill and it serves as a fantastic way to help you improve you poker skills!
