Hand Ranges as Combinations Thinking about hand ranges in terms of combos is much more difficult than “putting your opponent on a single hand” and requires a lot of practice to become proficient at it, but making this switch is something all players must do if they want to progress in their poker careers. The author then correctly accounts for Hero’s fold equity when the BB folds, but then in the equation given shows that Hero still had 29 percent equity for the remaining 25 percent of the hands to be played. In that case you definitely want to use your data to make adjustments (when the sample is reliable).

It is based around an in-depth examination of what is meant by game theory optimal play (GTO) and how it can be applied at the table. When I first started playing online and learned about these tools, I assumed the top players were the ones who had mastered them and knew the math behind each and every possible situation. So, how do world-class players manage to get access to the most advanced poker theory without having to spend thousands of hours actually in the lab? When he showed me the Heads-Up Display (HUD) he had constructed in Hold’em Manager, I was impressed, and even a little envious.I know this to be true because I am one of those specialists who has been creating cutting-edge content for them. They believed in me, offered me staking and gave me access to world-class coaching when I was no one, and that is something I’ll never forget.

However, most modern poker theory these days focuses on how to beat the solid winning players instead. Hand Range 3: A Typical Mixed Raising/Limping Range The Villain would be much better-off playing a simpler strategy where they only enter the pot by raising with all hands they want to play, making them more difficult to read. Michael Acevedo, one of the world’s leading poker theorists, is a game theory expert who is renowned for creating cutting-edge content for the world’s leading players. AA: It is definitely possible for Villain to hold AA at this point, and he would most definitely want to raise with it (unless he was known to slow play).

There are 12 ways to make a non-paired offsuited hand, so there are 78 × 12 = 936 total combos of offsuit hands. First, I want to thank Alex Carr and his staking group Pocarr for giving me the opportunity to start playing online multi-table tournaments (MTTs). A player's intuition is the most valuable asset, thus to be able to express the way an author actually sees the game/ approaches the problems is probably more important even than the maths/ solutions themselves (although of course, a completely erroneous book is of no help to anyone). That HUD, combined with Michael’s background knowledge and eagerness, led me to invite him into a study group of which I was a member and which also included elite, high-stakes players such as Stephen Chidwick, Elio Fox and Martin Kozlov.

This might go down as the best poker book ever written--Brandon Adams, Professional Poker Player ----- I can’t imagine that a more comprehensive book on the subject of GTO will ever be written. An exploitative strategy is a strategy that aims to take advantage of the mistakes and tendencies of opposing players. Some play to have fun and socialize, others play for the thrill of running a big bluff or outthinking their opponents, and others play for the glory of winning a tournament, a bracelet, or making a living.You could be the ninth best player in the world but if you made a point to only play against the eight players who are better than you, you will get destroyed. Mark’s mistake was assuming that his opponent’s loose preflop play indicated that he will play loosely postflop as well. If you know a player significantly overfolds to flop c-bets, for example, betting is going to be much better than checking even if a GTO solution would take both actions half of the time.
