Poker New years resolution

Tuesday, December 30th, 2008 | Poker and Life, Poker Articles | 4 Comments

Submitted by Dungbeetle, this article belongs to the Poker and life section. Editor's comment: I just finished reading Dungbeetle's poker New Year's resolution for 2009 and found his views on the effects the financial crisis might have on the poker scene in 2009 to be very realistic. How do you think the financial crisis will affect your poker life in 2009? I had intended 2009 to be a real make or break year on the poker front, in that I'd play in a number of EPT and WPT events as well as the Read more [...]

Implied odds; all you need to know

Thursday, December 25th, 2008 | Poker Articles, Poker Mathematics | 2 Comments

This article is a part of the Poker Mathematics series. Implied odds is a more advanced poker concept than pot odds, poker probabilities and EV. You should therefore familiarize yourself with these basic concepts first.

Implied pot odds are most relevant when you are on a draw and stand to gain additional bets if you make the draw but on the other hand Read more [...]

Friday, December 19th, 2008 | Poker Articles, Poker Strategy | 1 Comment
