5 Poker Mistakes
1- You can check.
2- You can bet.
3- You can fold.
4- You can raise.
Those are really the only actions you can take in poker, so these are the only mistakes you can make:
1- Checking when you should be betting.
2- Betting when you should be checking.
3- Folding when you should be betting.
4- Folding when you should be raising.
5- Raising when you should be folding.
I think you can come up with other mistakes combining the above 4 possible actions, but not all of them apply, IMO, but the above 5 are the ones that apply. Thinking about the possible mistakes you can make playing poker makes the game seem a little simpler, to me.
