    Its a good chart for beginners and to learn the game with but you also have to realize these principles arent set in stone(and you should make note of this). The way the video is explaining how and when to play your cards is wrong. There saying "Always play your cards like this". Thats completely wrong. Poker is a people game. You play the player, not your cards. If your always going to play by the book, the good players will find this out quickly and crush you. If you constantly mix up your play you will be difficult to read. The video is wrong in the sense that it says "You should always play your cards this way". Completely wrong. The way you should play your cards depends on your position and most importantly your opponent(s).

    For a beginner the starting hand chart is very helpful and enables the player to avoid mistakes such a playing the wrong starting hands/too many hands. At the level this video is aimed at psychology and playing the player is not so important as getting the fundamentals right but yes as your game develops so too can you move away form the hand chart and start to think more about the opponent.

    Does AK have less value at lower stakes? After all, when another player pairs the 7 of his 6,7s aftre calling a raise he won't imagine he is beat.
  • Huckebein

    #16

    @10: AK is a very strong hand, but it is only ace high if you don't hit.

    On the other hand you want the bad players come along with their bad hands, because this will be your profit in the long run. Following the chart is definitely your best option.

    Kind regards

    I´ve got my 50 bucks within 24h (though i can recommend good BRM, i almost went broke, grinding back up now).

    About the charts, as they say, it´s aimed to the lower levels - and from my experience, in the lower areas it´s all about playing the cards. People are doing crazy stuff - all in bluffs on turn with nothing, all in bluffs preflop to steal 0,03$ in blinds and stuff.

    Also, it doesn´t matter if you have only shown AA, KK, AK and stuff, people won´t respect your play any more or any less.

    I´m confident that you will eventually make money with the chart in the lower levels. I´d question if that is the best way to learn the game itself, though.

    I think the raising size is too big, now players mostly raise from 2bb to 2,5bb, rarely 3bb, I mean if no players limp/raise behide you ;)

    do someone know poker quiz answers?
  • OnkelHotte

    #32

    @30: Yes, a hand is different from another one but so is the value of a hand. And there is clear statistic date which reveals that some hands are worth being played and some others aren't.

    Thus a careful hand selection is the most powerful tool to successfully start into poker.

    Combining pre-flop and post-flop playstyles is getting confusing... :D
  • IwaoTakeo

    #51

    Having played 10k+ hands so far, I'd say more often than not keeping to the pre-selection strategy earns you money in the long run. The only thing I don't like about it is a bit of predictability of your playstyle - sometimes it's worth only calling a raise with AA for example, such as when you are on the blinds and a loose player raises from the button; deception is where you make big money.
