According to my local bookstore Kinokuniya, currently the supplier has no stock. When are you reprinting it again?

Re: No-Limit Hold ’em For Advanced Players by Matthew Janda Pre-sale thread.

I'm about halfway through the book, reading it on the Windows desktop Kindle app. I'm very impressed so far, and especially pleased that it doesn't suffer from as many typos/misprints as 'Applications' did. I've only spotted one little mistake so far, and it's with this footnote #6, which is an incomplete sentence:

The two missing words are "opponents play."

Technically this is not a type-o since these words appear in the printed book but were missed by the company that does our kindle conversion.

Best wishes,

Just tried the discount code for the PDF version. Did't work.

Any help?

Re: No-Limit Hold ’em For Advanced Players by Matthew Janda Pre-sale thread.

Hello Mathew; Question

In a mixed strategy, I understand that the two actions have the same ev, but, What do means they have different frequencies? It is the action with the highest frequency that we would take by default if the opponent were unable to exploit us and the action with less frequency only a defensive line in case the opponent is enough good to exploit us?
In the example you give in Chapter 2, ask 1: 10s 8s in 9h7c4d, assuming the optimal strategy was a mixed strategy of bet 97% of the time and 3% check of the time; The ev of both lines would only be the same if the frequencies are respected, so it is true that you say that no line is superior to the other, but only if the frequencies are respected.
Therefore we will make a minor mistake if we bet 100% which is almost the same as betting 97% than if we check 40% instead of 3%. So in practice, by our inability to balance exactly could appear that one line is superior to another, or it is less likely to make a mistake when its frequency is higher in a mixed strategy. Do you think this is correct?

After reading what everyone has said about the book, I decided to buy it. It should be arriving in about a week, and I am really looking forward to reading it.

I think if there was a mixed strat between betting 97% and checking 3%, then I'd just always bet against an unknown (unless I knew the general tendencies of my opponents, and the 3% line was exploitatively better).

A mixed strat doesn't really mean one line is defensive, it just means there are two (theoretically) equally good lines. That's it. And just because two lines are equally good, doesn't mean you need to take them both at the same frequency.

For example, perhaps chocolate ice cream and strawberry ice cream are equally good. I still may prefer a 70% strawberry/30% chocolate mix, because I want to feel like I'm eating chocolate covered strawberries, not strawberry covered chocolate (gross). But that doesn't mean one ice cream is better, it just means we eat one a little more often than the other to get the ratio right.

Re: No-Limit Hold ’em For Advanced Players by Matthew Janda Pre-sale thread.

Couldn't believe it when this hand cropped up today after the discussion we were having.

Full Tilt No-Limit Hold'em, $0.25 BB (6 handed) - Full Tilt Converter Tool from http://flopturnriver.com

Hero (BB) ($25.35)
UTG ($68.43)
MP ($27.42)
CO ($58.15)
Button ($25)
SB ($25.99)

Preflop: Hero is BB with A, 7
3 folds, Button raises to $0.60, 1 fold, Hero calls $0.35

Flop: ($1.30) 7, 2, 5 (2 players)
Hero checks, Button bets $0.42, Hero raises to $1.46, 1 fold

Total pot: $2.14 | Rake: $0.10

Re: No-Limit Hold ’em For Advanced Players by Matthew Janda Pre-sale thread.

Hi Matthew,

In the section 'Why we Bet and Raise' you give the example of the BB ch rz A 8 vs Btn 50% cbet on 852 to build a pot to win and deny button ability to realise equity.

Could you explain why achieving these things is more valuable than potentially gaining more bluffs from the weaker/lower equity hands in Btn range on turn/river if BB were to instead ch call the flop?

Thanks
