OK.. have to say this.. i like both cash games and tourneys.. i dont have access to online anymore, so yea, that might put me behind the 8 ball when facing some players, especially if i get back to WSOP tourney, but... i have busted out of tourneys, sat in cash, won enough money back to pay for the trip, and my entries. i have also had some good tourney results ( for me that is ) and not so good cash, where again, one helped make up for the other. i DO know to , and how to, "switch gears", when going from a $340 tourney, to a $1-$2 NLHE or $2-$5 NLHE.. that really isnt a big issue with me.. Now, even only being away for about 2 yrs since last WSOP event, i have seen some insane new "standard"plays.. cash and tourney.. i see a lot more options ( many thanks to your in-depth videos) from every single position, chip stack, level or buy in amount there just about is. really hope to beef up my game and go play the small series at the Venetian in August. not serious buy-ins.. top for me will only be $340.. but, hey,, thats half a paycheck for us working stiffs.. so yea.. NLHE is the only form i really play ( kill time in Limit holdem waiting for a NL seat ), but i love both tourneys and cash.. if no tourney is up for the rest of the nite i want to play, i sit in a cash game.. i prefer tourneys overall.. but dont see TOO many holes in my cash game that suffer as a result of playing in tourneys.. hope you DO come "Back to the Fold" and put out some more video blogs on poker... i have read a lot of the top books.. and still re-read them as i see serious value in them still today. you just have to NOW, go more to the range, the position, etc,etc,etc, than some of the tips in the books have showed.

Those two things... That's a lot of boiling. If people understood truly that this game isn't solved, and brought down to those two, that is taking something with billions apon billions of concepts and turning it into the final two. Awesome video, I wish that 2nd half was a video by itself. Hard to keep telling people go to minute 8-9 ish. Of all the years playing pro, I never actually thought or heard of it like that. Truly appreciate just hearing the extremly boiled version of what we are actually trying to accomplish. Awesome videos as always. (P.s. please make more comical videos for your funny playlist. "Don't do that. Never do this. Pretty much study this hand and don't do any of it" not exact quotes, but honest came to your channel sometimes just for some laughs. Have fun.

Doug, it doesn't bother me, really but I figured that since you teach me so much, I can teach you something. The word etcetera doesn't have the sound x in it. It's pronounced exactly as it looks. et - set - ter - ah. I hope you don't take this the wrong way but if you do, oh well, we'll both be okay.
Justin Timbers (10 месяцев назад)

ken edwards (10 месяцев назад)
it's not appropriate to state the game is skill based when i have played every way imaginable and still lose i always lose when playing poker on micro stakes low stakes medium stakes never played high stakes but i would not since i lose all the time until i can win 8 times out of 10 i will not play for high stakes for it's not worth the time and effort but i appreciate the thought on poker

great job Doug! n thx for explaining your thoughts. I heard you mention red n blue lining as an online poker term.... was interested in asking if there are other scenarios where ppl might misunderstand certain things or even understand them better just by using different poker language like you just did. it helped a lot n thanks again! ...plus I learn new terms! :)

OK. this is a naive-type question. I play cash games at the Atlantic City casinos. I see regulars. Should I be concerned at all about collusion, or cheating, or anything? Is the playing field generally honest? Anything I should be looking out for?
Andrew Mason (1 год назад)
Thanks for another insightful and interesting video Doug. I'm coming back to the game (micro SNG NL Holdem) after getting taught it ~10 years ago and it's changed and videos like this give me insight and inspiration about how I might be able to improve from being a marginal loser.

I feel like a solid player at NL tourney hold em. If I don't cash I got unlucky more than likely. I seem to always get knocked out around the 30-40 ppl mark no many how many ppl started the tourney and it seems to always be a bad beat that gets me knocked out around this point so annoying. I do have one win 10 dollar rebut tourney with 4200 ppl on partypoker in 2006, best cash payday ever. But anymore 5 dollar max buyin PLO is my bread and butter. I make average 30-40 daily 2 hr sessions. But if I move up to 10 dollar buyin I don't do as well. Idk anymore. Cash game Hold em I break even no matter the stakes.

Florian Kastner (1 год назад)
I'm gonna take your advice and only play mtts for a while, altough i usually play sngs. but i see your point, every time i play with a bigger buy-in i'll likley end up loosing and it gets frustrating. and if you're running good in a mtt its 10 times more fun!

"No one plays GTO"... I thought that was like a pre-req to playing high stakes games. I don't get it. Does he mean no one strictly plays GTO?
John Smith (1 год назад)
+Croo ookie yeh they don't cuz it's impossible
Croo ookie (1 год назад)
+John Smith So he's saying no one strictly plays GTO? I think that's like common sense. But he said it in a way that mean like people don't use that strategy at all.
John Smith (1 год назад)
Playing exact gto is impossible. High stakes reg have an idea of what a gto solution might look like in a spot. Their approximation to gto is the best.

Shem Goltz (1 год назад)
Hey Doug, I've got a question for you. Lets say I have a bankroll of $100 and I bink a tournament for another $400, now my bankroll is $500. How much of it should I cash out and how much of it should I keep as my bankroll? I tend to do the 50/50 style but would love to know your opinion in this matter :) Thanks! - Shem
lily vales (6 месяцев назад)
Take the 500 bucks and never play poker again
Mike Baca (9 месяцев назад)
Shem Goltz No point in cashing out. And throw the 50/50 rule out the window. If you want to play poker to make money you need a minimum bankroll of $8k. Why $8k, because that's 40 buy ins at 1/2 NL. That's the smallest limit at local casinos. Until you reach $8k all profits should be reinvested in your bankroll. Once you reach $8k and start playing 1/2 full time then you can start "cashing out". Your next goal should be a bankroll of $20k so you can move up to 2/5. Just my two cents.
Aaron Nethersole (1 год назад)
Hey Doug, Id like to hear you talk about "tilt" and how you cope and / or how we should handle it, keep up the great work mate!
smaakmakend (1 год назад)
awesome new series doug!: quiestion! if i may: u talked about 30-50 buyin's on average seems good for cashgame's what are you thought's on live cashgame's offcourse it's easyer to beat but u also have to concider ppl can buy in double or triple "startstack" does this mean i have to bring more or less buyin's to the table?
upplsuckimcool16 (1 год назад)
I can answer that question based on what I've seen from all these internet"pro's" You win at poker by getting it in with the worst of it and sucking out 90% of the time with the edge given to them by their sponsor poker site. Take tonaaaap for instance, how often do you see him go into a flip with the best of it? like 10% of thetime and still he wins 90% of the time.

so pokerstars ceo just got done for insider trading.fulltilt stole millions.more than one site had superuser accounts .and umm nah online pokers legit lool its just a software program designed to distribute money in circles while the owners become filthy rich at addicts and dreamers expense.just like what banks do with our money wake up people!

Love your content Doug. I really just started playing seriously this month and have already won a 70 person MTT and a final table chop in a second one, as well as good results in cash games. Really looking forward to going further, and content creators such as yourself really help to speed the process!

Awesome! cleared up where i'm losing money in 13 minutes,. I  need stop playing 6max nl while playing spin and goes with a tournament on the side, and also just lately live cash games have crept in to the schedule..  Only playing 6 max NL online for me is the best option then, as  I've been crushing those games because i've studied it the most, and is my most enjoyable. Before i'd do well in 6 max, but then play spins or tourneys and lose what i made in the 6max games. From now on 1 topic 1 focus. 'Jack of all trades but a master of none' seems to be the apt phrase here. Doug i think i actually love you lol

What do you think about using HUD while playing ? It happened to me that, while I was using it, I wasn't a winning player, and when I one day decided to try to play some zooms without it I start winning and am a constant small winner until today without HUD progams. I guess I looked too much at numbers without really considering actual situation on the board those days. Did that happend to anyone else here ?

Hey man, this reminds me of some of your videos ! Keep it up yourself ☺ PS Also, if you see this, could you consider doing some a la Doug Polk challenge and play some lower stakes PLO zooms ? I play 25 zoom daily, pretty much am a constant winner and would really like to play at least a couple of hands against you, and I am pretty sure I am not the only one with that desire at those stakes, we have some really good regs there !
