Can you be too good a fighter?
Yes! Good poker players know they can beat other good poker players because they know what to expect from them. However, bad players are unpredictable and difficult to figure out. They sometimes do unexpected or even stupid things. If you are a much better fighter than your opponent, you may beat yourself by:
- Being too quick. You may block before the attack get to you and then it slips by. You may fire a second or third attack before the opponent has had a chance to pull his or her block back from the first attack, so they all get blocked.
- Counter kicking too quickly so that your kick goes over the incoming kick allowing it to hit you low.
- Reacting to perceived attacks that turn out to be just random movements by an inexperienced fighter.
- Not getting the expected reaction to your attack
To fight some opponents, you may need to lower the quality of your techniques.
