Quick Life Update

Tuesday, August 23rd, 2011
How time flies! I realize it's been almost a month since my last blog post and my last Killer Poker Analysis recording. I've heard from some great fans during this time, and I thought I should just write something to say that I'm getting back into the groove soon...

Bet-sizing considerations when playing against an opponent who's known to be on a draw

Important Strategic Considerations for Cashout Tournaments at Full Tilt

Friday, October 1st, 2010
The most obvious question to ask about cashout tournaments is: "when (if ever) should I consider cashing out." The answer to this question: NEVER.

My Non-Exploitable Shove Cheat Sheets are Now Publicly Available!

Friday, July 30th, 2010
The past week has been extremely eventful. The biggest news of all is that I made my non-exploitable shove cheat sheets available to PokerPwnage members. My non-exploitable shove cheat sheets give approximate non-exploitable jamming ranges (with respect to cEV) for stacks ranging from .5 big blinds to 27 big blinds...both without antes in play and with antes ...

Why Open-Limping is Generally a Bad Idea

Friday, July 16th, 2010
It's been quite a week since my last blog post. I've been doing quite a bit of programming for three different things I've been working on. The hours have been long, I haven't played any poker, and I'm a bit tired, but I've really enjoyed this past week. Improving one's skills at something is always a rewarding experience! Aside ...

Today’s (7/2/2010) Edition of Killer Poker Analysis

Friday, July 2nd, 2010
I'm a bit sick today, but the show must go on! I'm predicting a non-negligible amount of sniffling, nose blowing, throat clearing, and coughing. However, I'm also predicting an overwhelming amount of killer poker analysis. The high quality of today's content should compensate for the low quality of my voice: 1.) The importance of board texture in no-limit hold'em ...

Today’s (6/25/2010) Edition of Killer Poker Analysis

Friday, June 25th, 2010
I'm back from my cruise. If you haven't been on an Alaskan cruise, you should strive to change that as soon as possible. The cruise was exceptional! We saw glaciers, whales, bald eagles, remnants of the gold rush era, and a lumberjack competition. And Princess Cruises provided excellent on-board service. I'm feeling extremely refreshed. Maybe it was the cruise; ...

Time…the Most Valuable Resource!

Friday, April 23rd, 2010
Time is something we can never get back. Yet, I seem to be very good at losing track of it. I've spent the past 2 weeks plugging content into the backend of the new version of KillerEV.com, taking care of my clients, playing a bunch of online tournaments, and trying to take poker tournament theory to the next level. I've ...

Game Theory: Rochambeau to Poker (Part 1)

Wednesday, April 7th, 2010
The first time I heard the term, Rochambeau, it was in reference to a one-on-one pain contest between two men. Competitors take turns kicking each other in the balls, and as in all pain contests, the winner is the player who doesn't concede. As much as I love testing my mettle, I've never engaged in such a game of Rochambeau ...

How to Employ Turn Check Raises in No-Limit Hold’em Tournaments

Tuesday, February 16th, 2010
Another weekend; another Pokerstarsathon! This has been my 3rd consecutive weekend of logging 20+ hours on PokerStars. The past two Mondays, I felt horrible despite pulling in some nice profits. Yesterday, I felt a bit more chipper even though I netted a loss for the weekend. I'm proud of being a bot whose physical and mental states are outcome-independent and ...

Poker Tournament Strategy Made Simple

Monday, February 8th, 2010
First off, if you didn't catch Killer Poker Analysis last Friday, I covered the following topics: 1.) The squeeze play in no-limit hold'em 2.) My opinions on Full Tilt's Rush Poker now that player tracking HUDs work with it (I haven't tried it out, but it seems to be word on the streets) 3.) Implied ...
