It is sometimes hard to be patient when you see other players splashing it around and getting lucky, but you will often see impatient players bust out prematurely while patient players who play quality hands will last longer.  So that should be experiential support for being patient.

You are definetly right:)it still requires a good strategy and some experience to know ,and to practice this:) Bullies are at all tournaments and when you see them going all in with 58 offsuit,and win,there is some temptation to "use" their playstyle..

When I start seeing hands that I can't play for a sustained period and I feel like I'm getting impatient i try to occupy my mind by talking to other players. I'm generally an out going person so striking up a conversation takes my focus off the fact that I'm not playing. I don't do it disrespectfully or to get under anyone's skin, I just like to hear where people are from, what they do, etc... Of course this doesn't work online

i think is just a mindset thing...if you want to be a winner poker player you have to be focus 100% every time...
