Hi I have question?

Where is less Math needed......in CASH GAMES our Sit&Go??

It think in Cash games especially when you play deep stacked because i think when you play sit&gos especially in late phase its all about ICM and pushing ranges.

Right?

Hey RDKNAUF91,

I'm going to move your thread to the beginners section where it belongs. We have experts there who are willing to answer all of your questions and alot of our players improve enormously from fizzy and her team.

Back to the question, the deeper you get the less maths is important (pre flop) immediate maths becomes less relevant and we focus more on IMPLIED ODDS. An example of this is..

Player A raises from UTG
Player B is in the cut off with pocket 6's.

If they are 40bbs deep he should fold his pocket 6's because he will fold alot after the flop vs a good range from UTG who will come out firing after the flop. However if they are 200bbs deep then although he will still fold as much on the flop he will win more money when he hits his 6 meaning that his IMPLIED ODDS are greater.

Hope this answers your question and you don't mind that I moved your thread.

Thanks
Patrick

Hey,

Glad you found us.

Indeed SNG's are more math orientated than cash games. But alot of cash game dynamics are built on adjustments from studying statistics and frequencies. I.e if there is a guy who is keep 3betting your c/o raise from the button then you would adjust by widening your 4b/call range. This can be done by either watching the table and getting a feel or using a HUD.

Thanks

Cash games for sure. Sit and Go gets to the point of Shove or Fold

What you think about PLO vs NLH . PLO is all about draws and redraws ,decisions based on math but on other hand its almoust impossible to know your equity in given situation because its hard to put villain on range.So I think PLO is more of a feeling game than NLH...???

U forget about sth. Pot odds play really important role in PLO as in almost all fixed limit/pot limit games.

very interesting question. i am not such a big fan of the maths myself so maybe i should have asked this question too long ago!

thanks for all the input in here guys.
in my opinion, maths are more used in the Fixed limit formats bec they are always computing odds, i could be wrong though.

sth = something!

Seriously, the ICM and pot odds stuff is fairly straightforward, but at the end of the day, it's all game theory.

musashi has a bachelor degree in maths
jbpatzer is an esteemed university maths professor
while i have a doctorate in getting massages and pedicures.

i would listen to them.

but seriously, there is soo much more to poker than the math aspect. if it was down to maths alone, those guys would be the absolute rulers by now. and yet they are regular people like you and me (no offense guys, you know i you)

Lol at 'esteemed'. Just 'steamed' would probably be nearer the mark.
