About this deal

This book is a product of all that number-crunching combined with Michael’s incredible aptitude for organizing and presenting data.

Pure Bluff: A bet or raise made with a hand that has little or no chance of improving on a later betting round with the intention of making a better hand fold on the current betting round.

In other words, if you play a true GTO strategy there’s no possible way for your opponents to get an edge on you.I suggest my students use a ratio of 80% play to 20% study, but my own ratio has probably been the exact opposite!

I do not subscribe to the common high-stakes attitude of keeping knowledge hidden to keep the losing players losing. Of course, just memorizing a few range charts won’t make anyone a world-class player but understanding the ranges in play will help you avoid common mistakes, allowing you to make better decisions. For example, on the flop A♣K♣Q♣, the hands 3♥2♥, 3♠2♠ and 3♦2♦ can be considered as the same hand for strategic purposes.

I must confess that I am almost never playing exact GTO, that I am constantly jumping between models and finding ways to widen and adapt based on my observations of my opponents. There is a range for Lojack vs Button rejam at 25bb but not Lojack vs Cutoff rejam at the same stack depth.

This is considered a balanced approach and it represents the very foundation of modern poker theory. Whatever their motivations are, no one plays poker to lose money and so, at their core, all poker players share the same goal (even if they do not realize it) which is to generate and maximize profit! You would be better purchasing HRC or alike and get better value here as it is difficult to learn from 50+ individual charts from a book. Understanding GTO is fundamental to being able to make accurate poker decisions and being able to exploit players who don’t. Winning 29 percent of the remaining 25 percent would be correct, but unless I’m misreading it, that’s not what the book says.

Also, why can't a book still get a high score if it has great content even if it is covered elsewhere because it would still be useful for someone to purchase and study it if that person doesn't have a large library of other works? Action Abstractions: A situation where some of the actions in the real game are assumed to not be usable. represents the factorial function, meaning that you must multiply the number in question by all lower digits, e.Also, if you know what the unexploitable frequencies are, it is much easier to identify when others are playing in a way that is open to exploitation. To make correct assumptions in certain spots, a player needs to play thousands of hands against that opponent. However, applying this approach against every opponent will probably be a bad idea because not all opponents have the same tendencies. Obviously this is equivalent to having over 100 percent equity for the non folded hands which is not possible. J♣T♣ is the nuts on 9♥8♥7♦ but is no longer the nuts if the turn brings another heart, 9, 8, or 7 because stronger hands than a straight are then possible.
