Making a poker study group

Hello I am forming a study group of 4-8 dedicated people to analyze and study poker theory and do research on different spots/situations. I want a healthy group size for the different perspectives/thought processes on spots, the bigger the group the more data we can get through and share results in order to achieve a mutual goal faster. So I appreciate anyone that takes the time to apply and I will consider all applications seriously. The group will be mainly focused on more advanced material, so I will be accepting people with ample experience at least ~2+ years seems like a good baseline.

If you are a novice player I encourage you to still apply, even though you wont be given priority there might be 1 or 2 openings for some newer players who are committed to study. If you have a background in mathematics and statistical analysis from school/work would help.

I started playing poker about 10 years ago at a young age recreationaly, I started playing seriously about 5/6 years ago and have recently decided to focus heavily on studying in order to breakthrough as a better player.


If you are interested in joining me, please reply with a post recapping your poker experience, why you want to join and what you bring to the table, and any other relevant information.
Here's a form you can fill out;
- How long have you played poker for?
- What is your age and what stakes do you regularly play(this info is lightly weighted.)
- What poker analytic software do you have available? any other data analytics software (eg. graph making software)
- Any background in mathematics?
- Programming? Good at excel spreadsheets? etc.
- How much time each week can you commit to studying?
- What are your group expectations and goals?
- Any other relevant information

Thanks to anyone who takes the time to apply.

Re: Making a poker study group

Hi

Im looking to be part of a study group.

I have been playing poker on and offer for a few years but started to take poker seriously last 8 months.

I'm 26 years old and how no background in maths or programming.

I can commit to 5-10 hrs per week to poker study.

Im looking to improve my fundamentals in the game and understand the game faster.

Look forward to hearing from you.

David

Re: Making a poker study group

Hello,

I might try this.

- I play poker since 2008.
- I'm 27, I play NL50 heads up zoom.
- I use CREV and PT4 regularly, Mathematica on some basic level.
- I study mathematics at a university (3rd year now), took a poker theory class that was led by co-creators of DeepStack, taking an optimization class right now (crucial for poker solving algorithms) and a basic statistics course right now.
- I have a limited experience with programming (basically mostly two mandatory classes I had), definitely willing to change that though.
- The time I can put in this depends on how close it is to the exam period.
- I want to get sound mathematical results (both exploitative and GTO-related).
- I'd want the group to be a long term, high quality thing, rather than a large one.

Re: Making a poker study group

Hello, i am Lucas from Argentina.

- How long have you played poker for? I have played poker for about 1.5 years
- What is your age and what stakes do you regularly play I am 31 and i play micro stakes (cash, mtts and stg)
- What poker analytic software do you have available? any other data analytics software HM2 low stakes.
- Any background in mathematics? Not realy but like mathematics
- Programming? Good at excel spreadsheets? etc. No. Made lots of excel big calculations years ago, trying to beat online roulette. I search what i needed at the time and have no problems.
- How much time each week can you commit to studying? 5-10hs
- What are your group expectations and goals? I have being learning poker slowly but hard (had 2 jobs and used ALL free time for poker). Since i quit the "real" job, i got a lot of time and want to use it for learning and growing on this.
- Any other relevant information Nothing realy, i like psichology in general and i realy like to plan strategie mixing data (numbers) with behaviour.

I want to discuss hands a lot, and have some "order" to study things. So i think being in a group is a good idea. Hope the stakes I play are not a problem. My plan is to become a semi-pro in 1 o 2 years, and then see whats happens in the furete. This possibility started since a week ago (when i quit my job).

I also learned english but I don't take it on practice for like 12 years. Just read and watch some movies but not to much talking. Sorry if this sounds rare. Thanks for reading and hope to hear news.

Re: Making a poker study group

- How long have you played poker for?
I've been playing poker like an idiot since I was about 10 from a silly video game. About 1 1/2 years ago, I realized that poker was a skill game and started dedicating serious time to study and playing. I have read Theory of Poker, Harrington on Hold'em I + II, Easy Game, Applications of NLHE

- What is your age and what stakes do you regularly play(this info is lightly weighted.)
I'm 21 and typically play 25nl-100nl on Ignition, as well as low-microstake mtts. I play lower stakes on ACR. In January, I had a bad downswing coupled with extraneous personal expenses and lost a good chunk of my bankroll.

- What poker analytic software do you have available? any other data analytics software (eg. graph making software)
I use an app on my iPhone for Ignition, since there's no tracking software, and PT4 for ACR.

- Any background in mathematics?

I was put on the accelerated track in math back in middle school, and took Differential Equations and Calc III by my senior year. I was a ChemE major but have since switched to Computer Science Engineering. I have taken the required Engineering Statistics and am currently taking Discrete Mathematics, as well as Numerical Analysis.

- Programming? Good at excel spreadsheets? etc.
I work with C++, Java, Python, and Matlab regularly. I am familiar with Excel and macros.

- How much time each week can you commit to studying?
Because I am a student, my schedule can get a little hectic. However, when I have free time, I typically study (poker, chess, languages) for hours on end.

- What are your group expectations and goals?
Even though I have a strong background in math, a lot of my game still focuses on the psychological aspect--ie betting patterns and even timing tells--as Ignition does not allow HUDs and many players in the lower stakes are not playing a balanced strategy. I personally would like to learn how to properly balance ranges for specific boards, and I think that a dedicated group like this could easily become a powerhouse of online poker.

If you are interested in joining me, please reply with a post recapping your poker experience, why you want to join and what you bring to the table, and any other relevant information.
Here's a form you can fill out;
- How long have you played poker for? Around 5 years.
- What is your age and what stakes do you regularly play(this info is lightly weighted.) I'm 26, and I regularly play 1/3 and 2/5 live or 50-100nl online.
- What poker analytic software do you have available? any other data analytics software (eg. graph making software) Only the basics - I've used flopzilla and now it's pokercruncher and a little bit of pokersnowie. I work on a mac so my options are limited.
- Any background in mathematics? No, and that's something I'd hope that the group could help me with a little.
- Programming? Good at excel spreadsheets? etc. Nope.
- How much time each week can you commit to studying? I could probably commit 20 hours if not more.
- What are your group expectations and goals? I'm hoping some of the more mathematically oriented group members can help me with my game, and I can share my experiences and perspective in turn. My goal is to become an experienced 2/5 player by the end of the year and take shots at 5/10. I also want to improve my heads up play as well as tournament play.
- Any other relevant information I am a winning cash game player with a pretty solid track record. I'm a semi-professional and poker income regularly supplements my income from my job. I feel like I could help players with a strong technical focus adjust to live play, as I sometimes see these types of players struggle with the transition.

Re: Making a poker study group

Unfortunately I do not have time to participate.

Yet I rediscovered this page: rangevsrange.pythonanywhere.com

and thought that this would be great tool for a study group. I think playing with ranges is a great way to improve your game. The software itself seems now to be working flawlessly.

It is a GTO/range thinking learning tool. I have played there very occasionally but just finished one game. Please pm me if you want to play and maybe have a skype/chat afterwards.

DISCLAIMER: I do not have any affiliation with the site / guy behind it (http://forumserver.twoplustwo.com/members/199881/) and AFAIK the site is totally legit, free and doesn't have any ads.

More about the idea and its origin: http://forumserver.twoplustwo.com/16...range-1206491/

Re: Making a poker study group

I have played a lot of poker over 6 months and have become profitable at 5nl to the tune of 6bb/100 over 200,000ish hands. I beat the pool and will move up in line with BR management quite soon.

I don't have a degree in mathematics and don't feel it is particularly relevant for participants of said hypothetical group to have one in order for it to be beneficial.

Please give me some basics on yourself, try pm me, if that fails giver me your skype add or ask for mine to get the ball rolling.

Re: Making a poker study group

- Been playing for 5 years, started playing semi-professionally in 2015.

- I am 25 and regularly play SNGs and MTTs (low - mid stakes).

- HM4 and ICMizer

- No background at mathematics and programming

- 5-10 hours a week

- I am hoping to find some people I can regularly discuss poker with because I don't really have someone that gives me feedback on my play. And I think that's a big leak in my game. I am a winning player, but I could be more profitable if I was able to discuss the game on a deeper level.

- I am a student and wanna make money. I don't wanna become a professional poker player, but right now this is what I want to do and I believe that it is possible.

Re: Making a poker study group

Hello,

I'm probably not what you're looking for but I'll fill this out anyways.

- How long have you played poker for?
18 months
- What is your age and what stakes do you regularly play(this info is lightly weighted.)
18, $50 husngs
- What poker analytic software do you have available? any other data analytics software (eg. graph making software)
PT4, Excel
- Any background in mathematics?
Currently in advanced statistics
- Programming? Good at excel spreadsheets? etc.
I tracked my own wins/losses, profit, ROI, etc w/ Excel before using PT4
- How much time each week can you commit to studying?
Playing full time, 15-20hrs per week of study
- What are your group expectations and goals?
No high expectations, would just like some solid feedback on my play
- Any other relevant information
I worked my way up from a $200 deposit to currently having $1400 (on a downswing). I am a somewhat new player but looking to start playing poker full time. I wouldn't consider myself a "novice" player, but I definitely have some room for improvement.

Thanks,
Collin

Re: Making a poker study group

Oi, this seems way too official to me. I play 10NL and 25NL when I play cash and $10 MTTs or SNGs. I pretty much break even in those cash limits and I beat the tournaments. I recently got PT4 and I hardly know how to use it. If anyone feels like they are around my level I would love to connect on Skype to chat and discuss hands sometimes. You can hit me up here or leave your Skype username or what not.
Cheers
