    How can you say that a poker player is great?

    Do you have your own criteria to consider someone a great poker player?

    What skills and attributes do they have?
    how can you face the problem if the problem is your face?

    I live in Moultrie Ga. Its down south near Fla. line
    Maybe most players think the pros are all great players, and don't look at some players at lower levels. I have come in contact with very good players at low levels, and everyone of them have one thing in common. They have patience. That is something I try to have but sometimes when the cards are not falling my way I try to make something happen and every time I pay for it. So when I see a player at a table folding every hand for awhile, I know they are good and I watch out when they call or raise a pot.

    I think that a poker player can be considered great when we wins big tournaments (live or online) and he is constantly ITM (in the Money) and increases is bankroll.

    They really have to be calm, patient, hands defined, tournaments defined, good management of the bankroll, take notes of other players, read blogs, view vídeos, constanltly studying the game and the players. And, of course, to be a good poker player we should also have a litlle bit of lucky than the others.
