    Or at least that is the connections I made at the Texas Hold'em table.

    NFs feel things out and tend to be passive/aggressive players
    NTs play with the odds and things they pick up from the other players
    SPs are the best bluffers and risk takers
    SJs tend to be the most aggressive players, trying to force their opponents out of hands
    In my experience SPs are most aggressive, often loose-aggressive - while SJs tend to be tight-passive (playing "safe") or even worse, loose-passive.

    I could concur with that. I was assuming since I haven't found many SJ types who will play an illegal game of poker. But I still think there is an order to it.

Actually I would guess NTJs would be best at playing tight-aggressive. Speaking in average terms, of course. When it comes to the skill of reading people, what you need is rather the skill to read cards, which might differ somewhat.
    That is an easy skill to learn for anyone who wants to. I'm as tight a player as you are going to meet, and I actually play too agressively. I tend to want to go all in for every hand I play and even though that works in my favor 80% of the time, the other 20% bad luck gets me and I'm out. I actually need to play a little less aggressively (not always go all in).

    Really though I think there are a lot of different types that can play poker well. My INFJ wife really cleans up at the poker table.

    I personally think INTJs and ENTPs. Though I think any type who spends time learning, can beat any other type who hasn't put in their time.

    I get beaten at Bridge quite often by my ISTJ friend. He also beats me at word games like Scrabble and Anagram, about 60% of the time. Largely I think though, because my attention span gives out before his, so I'm not so much losing through lack of skill, but lack of concentration. Unless you regard the concetration as part of the skill of playing the game, in which case, he's just better than me! lol

    Yes, but it helps having a patient nature ...

    I don't think patience is type related. Although the sort of situations where a person can become impatient can vary by type.

    I think anyone who thinks they can calculate/estimate odds on the fly without a system in place (NT or otherwise) is just fooling himself/herself.

    I haven't played often (5 times total) and haven't worked out the odds in various situations, but I have done well every time I have played. Playing tight when you have nothing, and limping into bets when you have something seems to win well.

    At Reno, my sister and I played in the poker room, and didn't mind giving money away to each other, and won big. My sister (ENFP) made a killing, and I did pretty well. We almost bankrolled the whole trip with those winnings.

    Accept the past. Live for the present. Look forward to the future.
