Apparently yesterday your delay was not long enough.

Example you AK in sb villain Q 10 btn. Board Q 6 7 7 9. villain tanked and called river shove when time ran out. your delay was at minimum 45 seconds short.

I do not know if anyone in chat alerted you sorry if this is redundant.

I remember the hand, I thought I was already on the safer end but I guess a little bit more for good measure doesn't change much and is necessary, even if the situations are rare. At least for my own sanity for when someone pulls the full bank for 120s.

Thanks for the music suggestions and feedback, as always <3

Hey, thank you, and thanks for bothering to sit through the podcast : ) Books shouldn't rank as your primary learning resource, but Applications of No-Limit Hold'em and the Mental Game of Poker (great for a high % of poker players) are two I often mention. The audiobooks are also great. If you're a beginner, Small Stakes No-Limit Hold'em will likely have very useful content for you. If you're looking for PLO, no book will save your soul. You're gonna have to fight the mongrels with your FISTS, friend.




@almost_over , I enjoyed, but they're not on spotify sir

@semi-nutting, your "highly recommended" has already been on the playlist for quite some time : )

Re: Cash Game Island: Questions, Suggestions, Music Recommendations, Feedback, Trolling, Kappa

I found this study guide and was just wondering your opinions of the exercises, and if you would concentrate on certain aspects compared to others

Quote:
I'd be very interested in hearing your ideas for poker breakdown drills. Here are some that I've done:

A) The Hand-Reading Game
-filter your HEM database for “Saw Showdown = True”
-reply the hand street by street, and verbally articulate (or write down, or enter into Pokerstove) your estimate of villain's hand range on each street. Was the hand he actually showed down within the final narrowed range you gave him?
-keep score, track results. If the hand villain showed down was in the final range you assigned him, you're 1 for 1. If it was outside the range, you're 0 for 1. Do 10 hands every day, and over the course of each week, track improvement in your average score out of 10
-you can add HEM filters to work on your hand-reading in a specific situation, for example when you're facing a flop check-raise, or when a loose-passive c/c's 3 streets, or in 3bet pots, etc.

B) Grinding PokerStove / Mentally Estimating Your Equity vs. a Range
-Get PokerStove out, or an iphone/ipad app like PokerSniper.
-From recent hand histories filtered in a specific area you want to improve upon, plug in your hand vs. villain's range at the critical decision point. BEFORE clicking “Evaluate”, mentally estimate what you think your hand's actual equity will be using a method like WiltonTilt's TUPAC method (see his Math of NL Holdem series on DC) or a similar method described in the book Poker Math that Matters.
-Compare your estimate with the actual equity found in Stove. Track your results every 10 hands. The average gap between your estimate and the actual equity should gradually go down with practice and improvement
-Soon you should be able to do this in real time at the tables. In the meantime, your intutitive sense of equity in various spots will get much better.

C) EV calcs, EV calcs, EV calcs
-use an Excel template for various common decisions (calling a river bet, shoving with FE, bluffing the river, thin value-betting the river, etc.), or use CardRunners EV.
-Don't just casually review your hand histories, and still wonder whether you made the right play or not. Actually figure out if you made the most +EV decision given the info you had on villain and his likely range. The math is the math.
-Change some variables (tweak his range, stack sizes, bet size, your hand/equity), and see how that affects the EV.
-The more you do this away from the table, the better intuitive feel you will have in a specific decision area at the table.
-Before plugging in all the numbers and solving in your excel sheet, you can work on mentally estimating your EV. Then compare your estimate with the actual EV. If you repeat this over and over and over again away from the table, you can actually get pretty good at doing EV calcs in your head while at the table.

D) ACTIVELY watch a training video
-It should take you more than 40 minutes to watch a 40 minute training video.
-During each interesting hand in the video, don't wait for the coach to tell you what action he will take and why he thinks it is best. Pause the video, and ask: What would I do in this situation? Why?
Then resume the video and see what the coach says. If you agree with the coach, now you have some positive reinforcement for what was likely a good decision all-around. If you disagree, pause again, get Stove out, refine villain's range, do an EV calc, and figure out whether you or the video instructor was (more) right. Don't just take the lines they advocate as gospel. You're a thinking player; you have a mind of your own.

E) Playing Blind
-drop down one or two levels, open up 2 or 3 tables, and cover up the hole cards on your screen with scraps of paper or anything you can think of
-Handread, handread, handread. Develop the habit of going through the same step-by-step decision process on every hand:

1) What is his range? Articulate it clearly in your head or even say it aloud.

2) What is his perception of my range? Not what is my actual range, but what does he or she think I could have.

3) Where does my actual hand fit into that?

4) What will he do? (If I call? If I raise?) Not what he should do, or what you would do. What will he do?

5) What is the most +EV action? (consider ALL options and ALL sizes)

-Obviously in this drill you cut out step 3 because you have XX air. You're simply looking for +EV bluffing opportunities given his range and your perceived range. But most importantly, you're forcing yourself to actively drill your handreading ability; and you're forcing yourself to develop the habit and discipline of going through a proper logical decision-making process on every hand, rather than randomly thinking about different things in different hands.


F) Are you mental?
-Work on your mental game (tilt control, poker mindset, etc.) a little bit every day
-See Jared Tendler & Tommy Angelo's writings/videos for specific things to work on each day, but you should develop a discipline where every day you do something like, for example, 10 minutes of deep breathing or visualizing situations where your emotions might come into play at the table, and how you will deal with those emotions. Some people suggest writing down whatever thoughts creep up in your head immediately after you take a bad beat or get stuck a couple buy-ins early in a session or while you're in the midst of a downswing (or an upswing to fight complacency). This all may sound like a bunch of new age b.s., but I can assure you it WILL impact your bottom line. Elite athletes do this; there's no reason why a serious poker player shouldn't. Every major pro sports teach has a “mental toughness coach” or a sports psychologist on staff. Most of you should be spending as much or more time working on this area of your game as you spend working on actual poker theory/strategy.

G) Drilla in Flopzilla
-give villain a preflop range, enter in a board like Axxr or J98ss, and estimate how often his range has hit TP or better vs. how often he has air. Compare with the actual results flopzilla gives you. Also estimate how often he has an OESD or FD, and then realize how wildly off mark some of you paranoid f***s are to repeatedly make protecting your tpnk against a draw the centerpiece of your decision-making process


H) HEM work
-database analysis to find leaks, answer questions about the profitability of various plays in various situations, or review how specific villain types actually play in your games in various situations (you could use the HEM Vision app). Most of the training sites have at least one video or series devoted to DB analysis (sthief09 on DC, vitalmyth on Cardrunners), or you can hire a leakfinder coach like mpethyridge to help you get started.

Re: Cash Game Island: Questions, Suggestions, Music Recommendations, Feedback, Trolling, Kappa

The above is excellent, and I'm wondering which of my decade-long stalkers bothered to journal it. OUT YOURSELF.

There's more, and complexity increases, but there is no point worrying about that until the earlier things have been tackled and hammered down thoroughly. The zone of proximal development comes to mind. The online cash players I know that stuck around have done a ton of basically everything they possibly could have. Getting better at certain things will be necessary to even begin being efficient with other things. For example, improving at assessing ranges accurately for different player subsets is clearly necessary for doing work that involves said ranges when you're trying to actually get applicable answers. Contrary to some popular beliefs, me acknowledging/pointing this reality out doesn't kill the game, it just makes the occasional person understand that it'll take work, helps give a path, and some will bother doing it (for better or worse).

There are great things above that will certainly help many. As a beginner/intermediate, you will gain from most of them, you'll improve, and you should be able to discern which ones are providing the most value for you at the time. If you're feeling a bit burned out with churning one particular thing, do something else. If you want to improve, it'll definitely be a time-sink, that much is unavoidable. Treat it like starcraft, play, climb the ranks, practice, watch replays, understand your mistakes. Simplistic zergling rushes won't beat your higher ranked opponents, and simple quick checkmates don't always work out in chess (real chess). THE GAME GOES DEEPER, FRIEND

I try, ideally 7pm - 3am EST, but expect the next few to once again start a good bit later than that : ) IT'LL ROTATE AGAIN.

Anyway here is a few more for you.

One from the indie Gods.



A recent one thats blowing up. Perfect for the stream



And this one should be mandatory cause we be "gettin it"




Also in the interest of the blade and seen as you're on the Japan grind.
Here is some Japanese "Math Rock". Great with flavoured tobacco. The drummer is a "god"

Hey Adrian,

Just checking in to say I love the stream, it really stands out from the twitch poker subsection, you present the perfect balance of education and entertainment! I actually had to change my sleep cycle to be able to watch in Europe

Also really inspirational for a micro player climbing up the stakes to see how high the skill cap is and that even NL200 can be consistently beat if someone puts in enough time to study.

At last some suggestions for The Playlist:





but anything from flume is good really



perfect song to handle downswings

Let me know if you like any of them and keep up the balance, positivity and all around amazing work you put in!

This is a great stream and the later starts are perfect for me. I work until 1am which is 3am and can't watch otherwise until the end of October, so keep up the late streams.

Kappa is the tenth letter of the 10th letter of the Greek alphabet, used to represent the k sound in Ancient and Modern Greek.
In graph theory, the connectivity of a graph is given by Kappa.
In differential geometry, the curvature of a curve is given by Kappa.
In twitchchat the almighty emote is given by Kappa.

Probably been suggested, but AJ, I know you don't want to leave past sessions on twitch. But have you thought about leaving only your last streaming session for like 24 hours and then deleting it? Maybe make it subscribers only, something very limited.

I love your stream but it's impossible for me to watch givien my schedule and time-zone reasons.

It's the face of a former employee that ended up being one of the most popular emotes on twitch, signifying sarcasm and the overall troll vibe Twitch aims to preserve.
