    Great video, the dice example was very good at explaining the importance of BRM. Just a small thing in your calculation, the EV is 1.10$, not 1.05$ :)

    Looking forward to the next parts!

    Прекрасное видео - для начинающих надо смотреть в обязательном порядке. И живые сессии у автора очень крутые - один из лучших тренеров ФР СНГ, я считаю.

    oblitron, you are wrong 1/20 = 0.05 not 0.1
  • steinek

    #13

    oblitron is right, thank you. I am very sorry for such a banal mistake but the argumentation is still the same.
    I do not know when exactly the videos are published but it will be pretty regularly.

    IHR DEPPEN....

    Meine Frage:

    Was ist, wenn man 50 $ hat,
    aber nicht weiß, ob sein Play + oder - EV is ???

    So ging es mir am Anfang, darauf hat das Video auch keine Antwort, generell finde ich es gut, aber da der Anfänger ja nicht wissen kann, ob er bei seiner momentanen Spielweise überhaupt ne Edge hat, ist dieser Abschnitt des Videos nicht 100% seriös.

    MFG JJ

    also ihr Deppen bezieht sich auf die
    ganzen #erster-Leute btw
  • steinek

    #29

    Hi, aber wie soll den ein Video darauf eine Antwort geben können? Es gibt schier unendlich viele verschiedene Situationen, die natürlich nicht abgedeckt werden können.
    Im Rest der Serie lernt man ja, wie man in den entsprechenden Phasen +EV spielt, aber das ist selbstverständlich gerade der schwierigste Teil und wenn man das so einfach sehen könnte, gäbe es wohl nicht so viele Fische.
    Vielleicht habe ich aber auch deine Kritik nicht richtig verstanden, dann hake einfach noch einmal nach.
    MfG

    Nice, nice video. Non-result oriented thinking is the most important thing in this game and lots of time we forget. That concept most likely will get you off tilt.

    I am a beginner and I luckily won 400$ in a tournament. What I need now is someone like you to tell me that the 400$ doesn't represent my actual strength AT ALL and I have to be very careful not starting to gamble. So thanks for this video ;-) Looking forward to watch the other ones!

    Thanks Steinek. Watched this video (all 5) last week. Modified my mindset and now managed to go up to $6 with a 1% rule.

    Nice video, brings people back on their feet and gives them hope.
    So, improve, improve, improve... is the message.
    Looking forward to see the sequels.

    Oh man these video series was great! It should me some very very large flaws in my game! I missed out on a lot of easy pots when i was playing!
    I already started applying this to my game and this is making poker fun again.
    Thanks Steinek

    Before watching this video i was a bit ( may be too much) of result oriented attitude, now i know what i should focus on and how to think non result oriented!

    Will definitly be following the 2% rule.

    I loved the bit where you said "yea! I made $3 in two week!" haha
  • fnssm

    #57

    Isn't it

    EV = (11/20)*2 + (9/20)* (-1) ????

    Because there is a probability of loosing our invested dollar wich is 9/11.

    best video about beginning poker !
  • Sotodo

    #64

    The EV calculation is different:
    100%/20=5%
    5%*11=55%/100=0.55 5%*9=45%/100=0.45
    EV=[probability of losing*(-lost money))+(probability of winning*money won)]
    EV=[(0.45*(-1))+(0.55*2)]=0.65

    Excellent video, refreshed the main concepts for a solid SNG starting block. Looking forward to the next one! Got me thinking about my +EV in certain situations.

    45% of the cases he will be broke? Because 12-20 shows? That's when we lose and he will win. 3 straight win for him is: 0,45x0,45x0,45 = 9,1 %
    and for us 0,55x0,55x0,55 = 16,6%.
    So were do you get the 11 % from ?
