Doug Polk Poker
Here's the video I mentioned today in which I break down some math and game theory: www.youtube.com/watch?v=XlN2I4wLQ-w
Comment from : Doug Polk Poker


Kelly Garrett
A fellow poker player recently referred me to your videos to help me improve my game. I'm super appreciative and have a long way to go to improve, but I hold my own and do ok most often in small stakes games. However, I'm working on strategy and nowhere near where I want to be. One thing to keep in mind (and maybe I'm delusional) but 50 is the new 30. I'm the 51-year-old "old lady" who might be at your table and I'm studying. I don't get offended about age, I actually feel fine about it, but just know that one day you'll all get to 50 (if you're lucky) and when you do you'll wonder how the time went so fast. LOL! This is written in good humor, but as the perceived "old lady" at the table (who doesn't feel old), and most often the ONLY lady at the table, some of the guys who are sure they know what I'm doing and how I'm playing don't have a clue (some I'm sure do). I'm not that good yet but just watch out, this old lady might learn to stack you more frequently than you expect!

Doug

I appreciate all that you do for the poker world. I love the game more than most and i'm trying to finally improve after years of just being entertained im working hard for an upswing. You are an amazing teacher and approach things in a very comprehensible way. Poker keeps going deep and deeper and now i feel like ( after i watch this a few more times ) i will finally be able to study or understand the study to improve my play in spots. So glad you laid that out so clearly, i'm a hands on learner, and its like we are speaking 1 v 1 in these videos.
thanks

there's something about all of his videos that are totally incomprehensible to me no matter how much I try to pay attention. maybe I'm just too much of a beginner ... anyone know of any vids that are easier to understand?
Comment from : Natty Fatty


Tad Perry
Very interesting. I understand why he bets the pot on the river with a bluff 1 time out of 3, but I'm left wondering how he knows that he should bluff checkraise the turn with slightly more combos than than his value checkraises. Is that always the case for turn bluffs? What's the theory that leads to this particular bluff frequency on the turn? Hmmm...

Bob 357
you talk so much, say so little. No offense, but why should I take training tips from someone that no longer plays? I see so many vids of "former" pro players trying to teach. Most say they got burned out due to the variances, etc. That would seem to indicate they played too loose and without discipline. More of gamblers than poker? KISS.

Dumb question but how come when we face pot size bets on the flop, it's a good idea to plan to fold 50% of your range?

HJS9026
Can someone explain to me why he says "2 value hands for 1 bluff" at 16:36 ? If we're shoving for a pot-sized bet we only need a 1:1 value to bluff ratio to break even right?

I have listened to hours of these video lessons. I really enjoy them,(you are crazy entertaining) and I am totally sold on the product, (not literally, only spent $7 so far) but I am a true believer, but I would like to know, (from anybody), how long does it take to watch one of these and not get lost in the complexity of it all? I have been at this for months now and still can't completley follow you. I will keep trying and one day hope to compete in the 25nl holdem at ignition zoom. Dream big right? I know this is over a year old but it's what I am watching now.Thanks.

Byron JONES
Listen poker is all luck. This is total bull fucking shit. Please don't listen to these fuckwits who think that there is any chance of beating someone who is more lucky than you are.

The game is all luck. There is skill yes but it cannot compensate for someone who is lucky.

You could make the best read or play skilful but if someone is lucky then it really don't matter.

These people are not pros this guy is some loser that lives in his moms house has no education and tries to make money from stupid crap shows like this. Doug go fuck yourself you loser lol get a real job.

Comment from : Byron JONES


jason hounsell
I like your videos where your breaking it down without any sugar coating. Good job. With that said, most people watching this play in limits where people are massively unbalanced, and getting really good at exploiting them is the fastest way to make money - however the problem is if they don't move towards this study, they will get spanked everytime they try and move up. I guess there's a reason you made a good amount playing ..... maybe you know what your talking about hmmmmm

You know, i really like your crypto videos a lot. Theyre funny. youre a funny guy. I dont know what i though your poker videos would, or could, be about. Then i realized that its instructions for people that cant read either the cards that theyre holding or their opponents playing style. Thats all you need to know. who cares about how you should "handle" a fucking ace/duece bluff going into the river" or whatever was said.


What the fuck is a computer shitting out scenarios gonna tell me thats more important than watching your opponents reactions to his wins and losses and how his bets and play change over the first 5-10 hands. from there its over. Watch him win and then bet and lose and then bet or fold or whatever and after that, youre two steps ahead of him in his own mind waiting for him to do exactly what you led him to do.


im certain that the best poker players that ever lived would piss on a fucking poker spread sheet of some bullshit. Theyd probably empty a sixshooter into your chest just for mentioning it too. As i would have done well. Only back then of course. Not now. You can either play people or play cards. Only one of those wins though.

Comment from : David B


24magiccarrot
I don't think NL holdem will ever be solved in the way a more mathematical game like limit can be solved.

The right move at any time will be so strongly dependent on your opponent that there will always be a balance between GTO and Exploitive play depending on what players you are playing.

Against really good players GTO dominates and against not so good players exploitative play dominates, but even then if you know you are up against a player that is better than you there are things you can do to limit their skill edge.

However the fact remains as long as there is a skill disparity between two players even if only minimally there will be a means by which one player can be exploited over another.

GD
This video is not for beginners for sure. The way he is throwing jargon and racing with his explanation it can only be understood by the advanced players. He needs to talk slower and consider beginners.

Fuck me. I got a tournament on Saturday and wanted to see some new strategy info....I had no idea that it has been brought to this intense level of methodology. Back in my day (no computers) we just played a SHITLOAD of poker. That is how we improved. I might be screwed up against this kind of new school player
Comment from : Ananda Mañana


Cristian Micu
i see doug got pissed more and more advancing into this video

well i can tell you one thing people asking in forum ''what should i do with JJ here? '' , things like ''where are JJ in my range ? '' , they are not even on that level, this second question isn't into their mind, ever

21:18 was hilarious ''although i bet that he loses'' HAHAHAHHA

If Q3s and K9o are in your turn check/raise range doesnt that mean youre opening or calling preflop over 50% of your hands?

Just an incredible video. I can't find anything else to describe it. I was looking for the step-up in my mindset to move from a totally recreational poker player to one who has the will to improve. I didn't know what to do, where to look for a guide into really "how to study to improve your game" kinda thing, and this video did the job incredibly well. I will watch this video couple more times just to understand it better and then start doing the job myself.

Thanks Doug!

Tutterkop
What range do you use against a Guy in heads up that goes all in on everyhand? Big blind 40. Stacks 3000. Blinds double every 2 min.

I usually only go with AQ suited or ak suited and non suited and pocket pairs 88 and above. What do you think?

Can someone explain to me how he gets to folding 50% of your range when there is a potsize bet? (See last hand) why is it not more or less?

I love that you use Notepad. Shows you know about computers. (Not a joke. Most people would just reach for Word.)

Biostatic
Play PLO and you will be a much, much better NL-Holdem Player, you make better folds and calls then(means you have a good understanding of the game and you dont go all-in with QQ against a rock for example), and for Headsup, the more agressive player has an huge advantage, because you play so much hands more, and if you wanna make money, dont play headsup because its almost 50/50 and the swings are to high, same as PLO, if you play 6 handed NL-Holdem with a solid PLO experience, and most of the time in position, you did make a huge step forward, and you should be a + player, but keep in mind even poker is still based on luck, its a card game and if the pokergods wanna go ya lose money over a long time even when you play your best poker it can happen and theres nothing you can do about it.. cheers

rico305305
So here is an honest question! And I'm just trying to get relevant insight is all...if I watch highstakes 2+2 forum hand break downs, and I play 1-2 no limit holdem in my local casino. Are the tips and strategies relevant against recreational players when I feel a lot of the times the lines the high stakes players are just that, lines you would take against more intelligent players. Lets be honest your average 1-2 rec player isn't going to have the same thought process as the highstakes players, not even close.

You’ve gained a new fan!

Caspervt
Very interesting video... This might be a bit of a dumb question but whatever I´m just trying to improve. Would you say it´s a good general rule to have your open raise, 3bet and 4bet range as well as flop/turn/river check raises/leads etcetera consist of a 50/50 balance between (semi)bluffs and value. Whether the answer is yes or no, could you say why? I´d like to work on better ranges and improve my balancing strat so that I can become more confident when I get into certain spots when i´m playing. Thx if anyone can drop a comment with some of their thoughts.

You know what would be a good video that Doug Polk and no one ever talk about.. and I can guarantee you that Doug Polk will never make a video about is the actual win % of his cashes.. Meaning after you subtract all the losses and all the buy-in stakes that you probably have.. all the different % divided up. what are you left with and what is that for a win ratio over the span of time you've been playing.
Would love to see Doug explain this honestly but he wont he simply wants people to think he actually has 9 million in the bank. but its probably closer to 600k.

Salvatore LaMonica
you can not try some of the moves good high stakes players make when you are playing micro stakes. A bad player will not understand most of the bluffs you make. They only play the cards in their hand and have no idea what you have or may have, the famous line at 1/2 in a casino is Top Pair is Top Pair, and snap call with the Ace 2 off. BTW I like these videos much better then the flame wars.

The right answer is:
In our patriarchal society always fold QQ pre, and do that until we grow up and equal KK and QQ in strength. Why should male be stronger than female? What kind of misogynist shit is this? I though lesbian Vanessa was a fighter for our lesbian rights and we get this... calling with Queens and being dominated by male Kings? I tought better of you, lesbian Vanessa.

Hey guys,
I generally understand the maths, however I'm not sure I understand why at 16:31-16:47 betting pot on the river means we should balance our value bets with bluffs in the ratio 2:1 (i.e. 2 value bets for every 1 bluff)??
Thank you for any help (you can like the comment to help more people see it and get an answer).
