I saw an article by Barry Ritholtz about putting together a short list for common errors that investors make. Robert Seawright then expanded on it with 30 Investing Truisms. I love this sort of stuff.
Here are some for poker:
1. A check-raise on the turn or river from a passive player is a monster.
2. Don't pollute your HUD with slow converging stats. That's what your pop-up is for.
3. Don't slowplay on draw-heavy boards vs. multiple opponents.
4. A triple barrel bluff vs. a relative unknown is almost always spew.
5. You need to have a tilt-plan in place before starting a session. Otherwise, you are like an electrician trying to install a circuit-breaker during a thunderstorm.
6. BRM can extend or shorten your life - regardless of your skill level.
7. At the micros and low stakes, your best strategy for dealing with a aggressive 3-bettor who has direct position on you is to switch tables.
8. Losing with KK against AA consitently isn't always a "cooler" - it could be a leak.
9. Calling with low and mid suited connectors out of position vs. a three-bet with 100 BB stacks is burning money.
10. There is no "in a vacuum" - there are always reads you can make and those reads are important.
11. Balance is not only unnecessary but also leaves a lot of money at the table at the micro and low stakes.
12. In general, valuebets should be bigger and bluffs smaller since most people have fairly inelastic continuing ranges.
