Default Help?

Is there any way you can make me a better poker player?

I really suck.

Great to see the forum up and running. Well done.

Thanks. It's nice to have it up -- looking forward to putting up some more videos in the near future.

As far as the better poker player part goes, well, we're trying... [img]/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

I've done a couple (I play HUDless about 1/2 the time overall), but most of them are me playing more than 1 table so we won't be able to post them here (just due to the physical size of the recording). If you want I can check out our library and figure out which ones have been played with and without a HUD.

Yeah, I'm thinking about a membership. I've been playing a lot of 3-4 handed games without an HUD, and seeing how you guys develop reads and take notes would be great.

Hey slamhound,

I humbly believe I am pretty good at getting reads on my opponents, and since I have started doing single table videos I find my reads / notes on players have been much more accurate and useful. I would say even if a video has a HUD used do not dismiss the value of the "getting reads" idea presented in the video. I use stats and observational reads in my play to learn about unknown opponents.

Most of my older videos are HUD-less, I say nearly 20 of them are.

One thing I watched was that you don't breathe during a session. Check out my older, meta-game, vids they have a lot of techniques that you need to move up.

Let me expand: When we played in that 4/8 game a few weeks ago and you got into a hand with one of us, you were taken out of your natural element, you were not the same person as you were just before the hand was dealt. Breathing well can help you get through this and let the decisions flow. Think of it like playing poker on your couch in your living room, just relax.
