Poker Podcast With James And Chris

James and Chris give their take on what effective study in poker looks like. They discuss how to make studying more enjoyable, and how to make goals for your study sessions. 13: Facing an Exotic Line with an Overpair & Maximizing Profit vs. Tactical Tuesday goes back to its roots on this week’s episode with a pair of hand breakdowns brought to you by Coach Brad and his student Jon. The first hand comes from a recent $5/$10 session on Ignition where Jon faces an unexpected turn donk in a 3bet pot. The second hand is one posted in the hand history review section of Greatness Village by one of Coach Thomas’ students. 2012 WSOP Bracelet Winner Ronnie Bardah joins Bernard Lee. Roland is joined by Unibet Ambassador David Lappin on today’s First Flag. The GPI Global Poker Award winner talks about the Dutch flag he captured in 2007 and reveals which flag remains the most important one he’s collected in his career.

Currently, there are no restrictions on HUD use at ACR. My preference would be for Americas Cardroom to institute completely anonymous tables a la Bovada Poker, but at least they could pussyfoot around with a PokerStars-like partial ban. Is Americas Cardroom tough enough on cheaters and bots? An underground mini-scandal took place in early 2018 when popular online poker streamer Joey Ingram went on a diatribe about possible cheating at Americas Cardroom and the greater Winning Poker Network. Although he came out with a number of well-researched findings, the most believable claims included rampant cheating bots and collusion by a ring of Eastern European players. Is Americas Cardroom Rigged? At this point, I do not believe that Americas Cardroom games are rigged in any way by the poker site itself. Those sorts of conspiracy theories have been slung at every site who’s ever dealt a hand of online poker. Purposely cheating its players would be unnecessary suicide for a company already raking in millions by simply hosting games and staying out of the way.

However, the only access players have to hand histories at Unibet is within the poker client and unfortunately there is no way to save those files short of taking screenshots. This removes the ability of pro players to use heads up displays and tracking software against their opponents. There is in fact one software product that allows player tracking via heads up display on Unibet. That product is Holdem Indicator for PC and iHoldem Indicator for you Mac users. These two Unibet compatible software products use a technology called screen scraping in order to compile real time stats based off of the numbers displayed in the poker client. This technology allows you to bypass the lack of hand histories the site provides and now you can use a HUD. There are some limitations to the tracking that Holdem Indicator products can provide however. Unfortunately, since players can change names three times per day, the ability to track players long-term doesn't exist.

Can you play America’s Cardroom on mobile? Yes, although not every cash game and tournament. America’s Cardroom recently released mobile software that will work on iOS or Android, but only for Jackpot Sit and Go’s, Blitz Poker (fast-fold), and Cyclone satellite tournaments. Does America’s Cardroom pay out players? Yes. In fact, the payouts are one of the best features of America’s Cardroom. I’ve been playing here for nearly a decade and have cashed out numerous times without any trouble. Bitcoin is my current favorite withdrawal method here, as ACR will send it within 24-36 hours. I genuinely like Americas Cardroom and think they’ve done a lot of things well over the past several years. They’ve bailed out some failing competitors, dished out one of the most underrated bonuses online, embraced cryptocurrencies, and are a breeze to get cash outs from. I still play at ACR regularly. Despite those positives, however, America’s Cardroom isn’t perfect. They have a couple of legacy issues I’ve been waiting years for them to fix, along with a more recent cheating mini-scandal.

PFR: Preflop Flop Raise. How often a player raises preflop given the opportunity. This ranges from 0-100, where higher numbers mean a player is raising tons of pots preflop. RCB: How often a player continuation bet the river when given the opportunity after being the final preflop raiser and betting the flop and turn. RCR: How often a player check-raised the river when given the opportunity. RFI: How often a player open-raised preflop. This is sometimes shown by position (e.g. EP RFI) which shows how often they open-raised from that specific position given the opportunity. SQZ: How often a player squeezes preflop. TCB: How often a player continuation bet the turn when given the opportunity after being the final raiser preflop and betting the flop. TCR: How often a player check-raised the turn when given the opportunity. In Pot. How often a player voluntarily puts money into the pot given the opportunity. This ranges from 0-100, where higher numbers mean a player is involved in tons of pots. At Showdown. How often a player won some money the times they got to showdown. WTSD: Went To Showdown. How often a player saw showdown given they saw the flop. What would you do if you knew EXACTLY what your opponent had when he 3bet you preflop? How would you feel if you knew the precise range your opponent double barreled you with? My name is James "SplitSuit" Sweeney and I'm a poker player, coach, and author. Red Chip Poker.

PokerStars announced on Wednesday that it is making changes to its third-party software tools policy, set to go into effect on Monday, March 4th. A number of categories are being addressed in the update, but on the PokerStars blog, Severin Rasset focuses on two: seating scripts and reference material. We all sit down at the table as equals. So, when a player takes the time out of their day to play in our poker room, we want them to know they’ve arrived in a safe and fair environment where the only thing to think about is the action. Also, that they’re not being targeted for their experience, and they have a clear and unambiguous picture of the additional resources available to them. Third party tools like Hand2Note are always an interesting topic in this debate. On the one hand, there are legitimate and useful tools out there that can help players to train, get better and enjoy the depth of the game.

It is a good idea to start learning some advanced poker strategies like this especially when you start moving up the stakes. And this is because if you want to get paid off with your value triple barrels then it is important that you have some bluff triple barrels mixed in from time to time as well. This line is all about how my opponent plays postflop. I want to know what percentage of the time they CBet on each street. Sample size is definitely an issue once again as I have preached throughout this article. However, as long as you know that the numbers are reliable then these stats can make finding the weak spots in their game pretty easy. How often my opponent CBets the flop. This stat tells me if they are a heavy CBettor or not. I will take various lines depending on what it tells me.

At the very lowest stakes (NL2, NL4 and NL5) there are still terrible players everywhere with huge leaks in their game. You can still very easily beat these games with a basic HUD setup like my Lite version and a simple TAG strategy. Whichever stakes you are playing, if you are serious about online poker, then I would recommend that you at least try using a HUD. Using one has easily saved me thousands if not tens of thousands of dollars over the years at the poker tables. You can download my HUD setup for free above. And you can get started with the free trial version of Pokertracker 4 right here. Lastly, PokerTracker is just one of the resources that I use to improve my poker game. If you want a complete list of all the poker tools I use, you can find that right here. This article was quite long and has a lot of technical information in it.
