Kalupso I do own poker snowie and I do just what you said. Sometimes I get advanced... sometimes world class.. sometimes basic...

anyway, my question is: How valid/reliable is that evaluation? (in the sense that in game I take many exploitative lines)

Please, excuse me all English speakers here, but my intent with this thread is to find out if there're other Brazilians here interested in creating a study group. So I'll just write in Portuguese below:

Bom.. às vezes tenho visto alguns brasileiros aqui. Que tal formarmos um grupo de estudos? Focado em cash games. Acredito que para dar certo seria essencial que os participantes tenham os mesmos objetivos e principalmente as mesmas crenças e modo de ver o jogo.

Ex.: Mesmo eu fazendo o uso de solvers (com muitas ressalvas e node-locking) pra mim, não adiantaria eu discutir estratégias com alguém focado em aplicar GTO em detrimento de um jogo 'exploitativo' que maximiza os ganhos. Ou então jogadores focados em MTT.

Se você estiver afim de criar e participar junto de um grupo de estudos me manda uma mensagem privada.

Obrigado!

Absolutely! I was actually watching a video from gripsed about bad poker habits. I'm guilty of doing 90% of them.

Nov. 1, 2018 | 4:07 p.m.

well... got mixed feelings about your reply.

In a sense, thanks for helping. Seriously.
But also, I feel dumb now :D.

But that works!

All the best man

I came to realize that I was checking my results too frequently. And it's just unnecessary anxiety. So I want to check my results once a month.

But there's a problem I'm facing:

How can I not check results if every time I open my tracking software (holdem manager 2) to see and analyse hands, the results of the last, and past sessions, are simply there on the screen and I can't do anything to avoid looking at it?

Any insights are greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Hey HawksWin,
Many thanks for the great reply. I learned a lot.

All the best!

Thanks Samu, I feel idiot now that I tried that play. But I think this might be a common thing for beginners.

Thanks for commenting

Anyone interested in creating a group focused on gathering and analyzing microstakes population tendencies to develop a list of 'hot spots' (I guess Nick Howard uses this term) with the goal of making the highest ev plays (exploitative)?

send me a PM

Hi Steve Paul , around 10:30 you fold JJ (on KT99). Would you call the PSB it if it wasn't multiway?

Thanks!

Hi,

Are there any videos that teach how to perform database analysis focused on identifying general population tendencies?

Thanks!

Oct. 10, 2018 | 9:16 p.m.

Thank you. My reason for calling was the small BTN raise and also the fact that I already had 1bb invested in the pot;

What's the lowest pocket pair I should be calling?

Hi Francesco,
I do own a solver (gtoplus) and I find myself spending quite some time on it. But I have a few views/questions regarding the practical application of this whole solver studying and hopefully you can help me.

The way I see it is that, since people are playing nowhere near the 'gto build', node locking is practically mandatory if we want to take any meaningful conclusions.

However, the problem is that we're inputting our own assumptions on how people play in real life into the solver and then analyse what would be the best counter strategy. (ie.: the pool don't bluff as much, so we remove "some" bluffs).

How relevant such analysis is considering it's founded on assumptions? Aren't these assumptions creating a 'compounding effect' so that small assumptions in the beginning can can lead to very different results? What's the point of all this then?

Thanks!

Oct. 9, 2018 | 2:43 p.m.

Any solver can do that (I highly recommend GTO Plus).

Now I do have a question though, besides the general ideas of equity/nut advantage, what's the practical application of being able to guess the actual equity %?

Comment | pwalker 9 commented on Warm Up

Thank you for this video Chris! I'm going to create a simple warm-up session, very basic, just to start creating the habit. But mostly important, I decided - after considering the points you make throughout the video - that I won't be starting a playing session from now on without doing this routine first.

Oct. 3, 2018 | 10:25 p.m.

Pokersnowie preflop solution is available for free. It can be a good starting point.

Oct. 3, 2018 | 7:13 p.m.

You're right Jeff_ I play too fast. This is something I'll consciously work on on the next sessions.

And yeah. Preflop and SB/BB are my weakest links.

Thanks

Hi Tyler Forrester ,
Thanks for noticing how open I am to critique. Perhaps I'm wrong when I assumed I'm already playing good poker. I didn't want to sound arrogant. I'm willing to give everything to learn this game. The feedback I'm getting from my post is really opening my eyes.

I'm definitely going to watch some preflops and then blinds videos. Seems like this the the biggest leak I need to focus at this moment.

thanks
