Poker

Poker Samples

Be objective when putting opponent on a hand

Human brains are excellent pattern detectors, able to predict the future results of many events.

Don't be afraid to go for full value

On Day 1 of the World Poker Tour's $3,500-buy-in Borgata Poker Open main event, I found myself at a table that should have been quite good for me, because my opponents were playing in a blatantly straightforward manner.

In poker, an "overlay" happens when a tournament fails to meet its guaranteed prize pool.

Was folding pocket kings the right move?

Last month, I folded pocket kings before the flop for the first time in my life.

Information is the key to playing out of position

Mastery on the felt requires careful analysis of information and risk. In regard to playing with a positional disadvantage, my coach once told me that I either had to get good at it or stop doing it.
