  • Shevtshenko


    I've been wondering: can you make bad or uninteresting videos?
  • datsmahname


    This is a very valuable topic for poker players to consider, but this video series needs lots of work.

    I studied neuroscience and psychology for 4 years during my university education, and I am not satisfied by the organization of content in this video.

    I did find some interesting comments, but I think this series has a long way to go.

    Looking forward to future videos.

    @8 I (amateurishly) agree. But maybe he is 'protecting' us from too much irrelevant and maybe too technical, info for now? :)
  • smokinnurse


    unfortunately in english
  • sapheal


    Somnius, great idea and notion of poker. Also, like Your ideas regarding approach to poker- and all those go along with this kind of analysis and research.

  • akpanda

  • noisecore

  • MarcPS


    fantastic video. very good job.
  • luizsilveira


    Very good video but a bit slow. The same stuff could have been said in 20 min...
  • Guscode


    please release a german version...too much scientific english for an english noob like me :(...
  • Destrux


    Well...During first 15 minutes i though " Oh man, grade school biology..."...But then, at 20 minutes, right when he starts talking about emotional leakage, he used a hand example that described the exact hand and both mine and my oponents actions exactly that i played a few days ago. That kinda struck me hard...To see that someone actualy has a scientific explanation for it, it amazed me. Thanks for this video, and keep them coming ( and available to all statuses please! )
  • MaikelMF


    @20 thx :)

    To quickly address some of the comments:

    I studied psychology, focusing on neuropsychology with course selection for 4 years. Really enjoy the material, which is part of the reason I approached with this series. We determined that not everyone will have the same interests, some might enjoy the physiology while others might want me to get straight to the poker relevance. Tried my best to acknowledge both possibilities. As the series progresses there is more in-depth physiology content, but also more novel application that I hope will be thought-provoking. Basically there should be something for everyone. Like most things, it's impossible to please everyone, especially since you all have different backgrounds. I just hope everyone can at least take one beneficial thing away from it when all is said and done.

    Whilst this is an important addition to PokerStrategy's library of videos, it has a few problems.

    It reminded me of a first draft of a piece of writing - it needs editing, better organisation and a stronger sense of its audience.

    Moreover, the narration is too slow and, somewhat ironically given the content, does not postively engage.

    Given how relevant some of its ideas could be to poker players, it is a shame that the video is mediocre.

    If the scientist worked with a journalist/teacher/editor/voice over person, this would be one of the site's best collections.

    The book Freakonomics is a good example of what happens when a passionate expert meets a talented communicator. This video could benefit from the same approach.
