Just one question about a hand where you flat AK and than c/r an Axxhh flop (I don't remember the exact board or when the hand was, but it's mostly just the situation that interests me so it doesn't matter that much :P)
When you flat pre, you flat because you don't get (a lot of) value from 3-betting so when you get to the flop vs a reasonably wide range on an Axx board than shouldn't you be applying the exact same logic? I realise you also said deception was an arguement for flatting and c/r flop, but that's still in play when you flat again since he doesn't expect you to have AK and he will value own himself or try to bluff you off a perceived weaker range.
So my question here is, do you really need to have AK in your c/r range here? Like if you think you will get value from villain 3-betting air on the flop than why are you only c/r AK and not AQ/AJ/whatever hand that has lots of equity vs hands with practically no equity. Also, most people just pot control with a lot of weaker aces, (I'm not saying he does, but it's likely) so it just seems like you're only getting value from a pretty narrow range while making villain fold all of his bluffs.

3 PostsGreat video. Tilt is a huge problem for me and this is the first time I've heard it described this way (sacrificing EV to increase variance). It makes so much sense.

6 Posts"I like the vid, but in my opinion it would be much better, if the concepts were presented in a seperate way. The playing distracted me (and sometimes you) from the talk and vice versa. It just seems to me that a presentation type video, where you can fully concentrate on concepts/ideas (like the philosophy videos) would give credit to the depth of your theoretical knowledge" "the game doesnt interest me at all, would be much better if you could talk about your concept without being distracted by the low limit.." AGREED very good video tho.

5 PostsHello Niman first of all i am new to this site and i have taken a liking to the way you teach it suits the way i process and intake things now im not sure if you guys do this sort of thing but before i ask i should tell you about my goal in joining this site. It is to basically start again and build a game from the ground up. Now as for me as a player i have a small idea of game theory so i can follow the psychology parts of things yet i have absolutely no idea, not about math in general but IN GAME MATH so in turn i often get lost when in game math situations occur and math reasoning is used to determine a way of going about things. My problem is though i have no idea where to start so i was wondering if you guys do this kind of thing of course and if you have the time is if you could please provide me with some kind of step by step process of the way you learned the math of the game by that i mean what you think a good starting point is then what i should dwell into next i.e 1. pot odds 2. percentages 3. implied odds 4. ev and so forth and also some of the tools you used to enhance your knowledge of the in game math i.e some of the books you have read or pc websites and programs you used and so forth if you could do this would be much appreciated
