Poker Theory

Poker players are like scientists. Some are very good at adjusting to various aspects of the game, while others flounder as lab rats in a maze, following the usual practice every day and pridarpvayki pot only when conditions are suitable.

Albert Einstein is not playing poker. In fact, he has spent so much time in legal theories of everything around us, so it is excluded from most aspects of normal life while he worked. More than once this great thinker was visited by a doctor because of abdominal pain and more than once Einstein is aware, after several questions from the doctor that he is sure to eat for more than a day or two. It also comes the phrase "God is not playing dice with the universe," which means that everything happens for some reason - not by coincidence. This viewpoint is also adopted by David Sklansky, who also provides the basic principles of something important about the world (or at least the poker world).

Sklansky shared their views in his book "Theory of Poker" (The Theory of Poker), as:

"Every time you play a hand differently from the way you played it if you see all your opponents cards, they win, and every time you play the hand the same way as you would if you see any playing cards of opponents, they lose. Conversely, every time opponents play their hands differently from the way they played, if you see all your cards, you earn, and every time they play their hands the same way as they did If you see your card, you lose. "

Naturally, in short it means that you can make your best moves, if you can see the hands of opponents, but what is that you have a chance to do "best" moves if you can adapt your game to that of your opponents. If you just stay in the game and follow the latest controversial findings, it is great, but not for you and other players at the table and it will cost you money in the long term. You should watch the game you play.

It is written on how to play AK, and I still see people who play this hand wrong more than any other, even the AA. AK is still a draft manuscript, it is not complete and will often earn a considerable sweat, unless it is improved - AA is complete and may (not must) be won without significant sweat to improve. Many experts say that they will always set a floppy, even if they are not captured anything if they set before the floppy or suit with AK. However, other prominent pro players such as Dan Harrington, say they will surrender to the floppy if you have not captured anything. So what is the right way?

If you have not yet understood it, both are correct, but depends on the opponents and how they see the game to the man who held AK. The most important thing is to be able to adapt. Can not play any hand of poker in the same way every time or it will cost you money in the long term. If you do not believe, go back to back and study theory of poker. If you still do not grasp the idea, perhaps this quote from Einstein will help: "Madness is a repetition of the same experiment again and again and expected a different result."

If you play with A-K raise and raise every AA, turn and River, and still wonder why not make any money with this excellent hand, you are a bad scientist. Stop playing the same way each hand. Start to watch the game and your opponents and start to adjust my game to them. If you can not do this, however, can still take a few pot, but you are doomed to stay up to life in the labyrinth of low limits.

If you do not know, then be a scientist - speculation over the likelihood and try some experiments. Just because your action has worked, it did not make the best action at any time in any situation. Sometimes must simply stand and wait, and another path must act more actively.

Doyle Brunson likes to call this "changing gears." If you are always the fastest speed, believe me, often do not live to reach River. Similarly, if you are always the lowest gear, it will never finish first. Learn how to experiment, dispose of bad theories, keep well and adapt to each game. This is all of poker - to play on the right way at the right time, not to play the same way every time. Remember, Einstein also said, "Imagination is more important than knowledge."
