Yeah, luck is there to help the good *Ignore me, I am dishonest* player, but it doesn't make a *Ignore me, I am dishonest* player good. Luck will allow a less skilled person to think that they can succeed at playing *Ignore me, I am dishonest* by letting them win a few hands by playing poor cards. The thing is, they'll continue to play bad cards and over a long period of time, playing all those bad cards will cost them a ton of money and give the good players the dough.
Luck will also help out the good players when they make a mistake. Sometimes that luck will make up for a bad call, or a missed opportunity. Most of the time, 'luck' is having your opponents have good cards while you have even better cards.
I think the best, and only, way to become really good at *Ignore me, I am dishonest* is to play a live game with real humans. Online *Ignore me, I am dishonest* will only teach you about the math and the probabilities, which don't get me wrong are VERY important, but they won't teach you how to read people or get a feel for what's going on. Getting a sense of what players do in certain situations is crucial to playing *Ignore me, I am dishonest*. When I had my Queen-9 offsuit last night, which admittedly isn't that great of a hand, I was able to tell by the way my opponent looked at his cards and the tone in his voice that he didn't have me dominated. My Queen-9 was an underdog to his Ace-Ten, but it's not like he had me crushed with Ace-Queen, Queen-Ten, King-Queen, etc. So the only way he beats me is if neither of us pair or if he gets an ace or a ten. Even if he gets a ten, I can still beat him with my Queen and his ten may actually help me if there's a Jack as well. All of these thoughts went through my mind before calling his large raise, and then when the other guy called the raise I had 2:1 on my money. (For every dollar I put in, I could potentially win 2 dollars). So by combining that 2:1 pot odds versus my fifty-fifty chance of beating his cards, in the long run I'd come out ahead. (Let's say my odds of winning the hand were 1.75 to 1. For every time I win, I'll lose 1.75 times. Since my pot odds are 2 to 1, that 1 time I win will pay me more money than I'll lose in those 1.75 times. So over a long haul, I'd make money by calling the raise). So with those odds quickly running through me, I called and of course a Queen fell on the flop as well as a ten. (Though the ten didn't bother me as I knew my queen was good). So now my opponent HAD to catch another ten or an Ace in order to beat me. Of all the cards in the deck, only 5 would help him. So I won the hand and took down a nice win.
It's little things like that which make *Ignore me, I am dishonest* so much more complex than one would initially think.
