Enjoy the class and police said, you know how you like it 2. Body Language at the Poker Table: in this video, I'm gonna show you 13 and most common poker tells. So you're going to learn the specific things that people do at the table, not tell you about the strength of their hands. Please pay special attention to this one because sometimes reading body language can bring you more profit than playing well. Let's get right into it. Let's first discuss Common tells at the poker table. Players taxes chips very neatly. First thing he does after winning a part is making sure all the new chips are added to the stock in a need way. Such players will usually play tight, very calculated game. If such a player makes another stack and put it on the side, it's usually his profit. And so you can take advantage of that by betting more than his side. Stock players toxicities randomly such place. We usually play a loose game, and they like to gamble More. Player was a big part and doesn't finish stocking up his chips because he's getting involved in another part. It usually means they receive the pretty good hand. If it were rocks, they just throw it away immediately and finish stacking up the chips players shows he sent to someone who isn't involved in the park. You should work the person who look at the hand for towels. If he does any sorry face a sigh or anything indicating that the hand is weak is likely. The other way around in the hand is strong. He likely act in a manner opposite to the strength of the hand he's seen. If you don't spot any times from the person watching the head, you should assume the hand is somewhat strong, as players will rarely show bluffs or weak hands. Players seems nervous, you think? Surely he's bluffing, but surprisingly, he's actually more likely to have a big hand. Even novice players tend to disguise being nervous when they're bluffing and do their best to look call. So when you see a player begin to shake noticeably, you should assume that it's more likely that it's having strong. Additionally, if you show signs of impatience like topping his fingers on the table, it's even more likely because the bluffing player would generally try not to show any tells . And he certainly wouldn't show impatience. Player double checks his cards. There comes a flash on the board and the player double checks his cards. You can be quite sure he doesn't have two cars of the suit because he remember that he's only checking whether he is one card of the suit player engages in a conversation in the relaxed and rational manner. It's an indication of having a strong hand. If you're bluffing, it's much harder to talk freely as you're using a lot of energy to disguise the bluff. Oh, yeah? Did you hear about that? New James Bond will be my files. Amazing was just They did such a great job. Blair is smiling at you. While if the smile is genuine, then he's likely to have a strong hand. On the other hand, if you see a forced smile, there's a good chance he's bluffing. Player is very animated. It's similar to showing impatience, and it's an indicator of being strong. A bluffing player tries to remain a psych as possible not to trigger call anyhow, player glances at their chips. It's a strong indicator off. Having a good hand and wanting to bat. The glass we're talking about is just a brief one when players just stared their chips, It's not a tell. But when the quickly glance, it's usually unconscious and so not enact. Player takes a long time to act. It's an indicator off a difficult decision. Player goes out off this way. Toe act weak. That's what this just acting. Why would apply? Who's bluffing? Getting the exact house that he is? God, I missed again. Decision. No. Should phone. I don't have much. I don't know. What should I do Have? Really, really. But I figure bluff call me Player goes out of his way to act strong again. Real cows, which you will learn to pick up, are usually small and brief, unconscious movements or changes in the routine of a specific player. When it looks like an act, it usually is. So when someone wants to look like he's strong, he's usually weak. They're strong. I'm thinking, How much did that to get paid off? I am thinking 2000. What's your move? So we've discussed 13 common tests at the poker table, so let's not talk about how you should use these and how you should behave at the table. It's important that you study every hand in your opponents to establish how they play and how they act at the table. When you pick up a tell, you have to remember that it is just the tell. You cannot base your decision solely on it. It's just another piece of information that allows you to make better decisions. As with everything in life, you will improve with every life game you play so that one day you might be able to pick up tells on an unconscious level. Lastly, let's talk about how you should act when you're playing poker life. You wanna be a still as possible when you're in the hand, you want to just take a comfortable position and keep it during an entire hand. You want to always to the same movements. When you're reaching for chips and putting out the bad, you don't want to talk during play hand. When you make a big bet on the river, you just want to look at the board and keep still until you're open and acts. You simply want to act like a robot so that you're not going to give any task. Their opponents, also on the players, receive their cars. You should be looking at them not that your cards, it's the same. With the flop comes. You want to look at the other players. Two reactions. First, the flop isn't going anywhere, and you just might pick up some tells. Okay, great. Let's some of what you've learned. It is very important that you pay special attention, toe all the players at the table and noticed their behavior. This allows you to spot tells which can be additional pieces of information that will help you make better decisions. A tell is something a specific player does in voluntarily that might indicate the strength of their hand. You've seen 13 most common poker tells, but to really memorize them, you should watch this video a few times does can be an amazing sorts of information if you become proficient at reading people's behavior, but you can never so early basic decisions on them. They're always just an additional piece of information to the puzzle. You need to make sure you're not giving away any tells to your opulence when you're playing life poker. And to do that, just remember that you want to be kind of like a robot. Whenever you're in a hand, be still comfortable act the same way trying not to talk and always keep your poker face on . Hey, thanks for watching this lesson. If you have any questions or comments, please go ahead and post them, and I'll be sure to try and answer them as best as I can. Try to aim for a least 30 minutes off, playing micro stakes cash games after each and every lesson because you really want to get as much practice as you can. You know it's important to ponder about these concepts were discussing, but it's asking more important to practice them into tables. So go play some and I will see you in the next one. 3. Expected Value: in this video are so you have to calculate expected value of your decisions in poker based on an example of a hand. Please pay special attention to this video because if he's one of the most important factors to consider when playing holdem, so let's get right into it. Expected value is a concept in probability that is used to describe the average outcome of a given scenario. So say you're sleeping a con with a friend and he tells you he's gonna pay $1 if it's hats and you're gonna have to pay 50 cents if its tails, how do you evaluate if this game is profitable for you or not? Use expected value or TV. Every client sleep has equal probability of being heads or tails. So you calculate the E V by multiplying 0.5, which is the probability of it being heads by $1 which is the imam of your friend is going to give you and you add to that 0.5, which is the probability of it being tales multiplied by minus 50 cents, which is the amount you're gonna have to pay your friend. So that comes to 50 cents minus 25 cents, which equals 25 cents. So you can expect to win 25 cents out of every single conflict in the long run. So in the same way you can use E V to calculate the probability off any decision in your life, for example, whether to buy a new car or a used one, whether to buy a house or to rant on whether to invest in company A or Company B and so on . Of course, you don't always know the exact probabilities as we sleep in a cone, and most of the time you'll have to estimate them in poker. Your goal is obviously, to Moxon made the expected value as you want to maximize your profits and many major losses . We'll go over an example of a hand in a minute, but let's first talk about hand Rangers. Whenever you're playing a hand, you should always think about what your opponent could be holding in that spot, and you shouldn't try to put him on a specific hand like I'm sure he has aces, so I'm gonna fall. No, you always have to think about all the possible hands your opponent could play this way up to this point, and that is his range of hands. So let's go over an example. You raise for middle position with aces and get called by the battle and the small blind. The board comes Jack. 10 5 small blank checks and you bet 1500. The bottom, who is a loose, aggressive player raises to 5500 at this point. Given your knowledge off the player, you put him roughly on the following range of hands. All these jacks intense, which your bidding 48% all these straight and flush draws 38%. Always jack tens and pocket 5 14%. His race gives you the also 4 to 9, so you only need to win about 31% of the time to break even. So you call. You don't want to race because you think it will probably make unfold. Always Jackson tents, which you're beating. The turn is a four of clubs. It's a great car for you, as it doesn't complete any of his drawers, and you decide to bet 6500 the button calls because he just cause they're you think that he most likely doesn't have a pair of jacks or tense at this pond and that he felt most of his week draws. You think you re raise all in the majority of his hands that are beating you and always pure blast. So you narrow down this range too strong droves 80% of the time and hence that are beating you 15%. The river is a king of hearts. What's your strategy? Do you go in for the remaining 6400 or do you check call? At this point, you're part committed and your hand is too strong to fall, so falling is not an option. Let's look at the TV to help us decide what to do. Based on high read this hand, you estimate that his range consists of dross that got there about 75% of the time and draws that missed about 25% of the time. Let's calculate the expected value off the first decision. There's 26 k in the party, and you're going to best 6400 So the E V is 0.75 times, minus 6400 plus 64000.25 times 26,000 which is 1700. So, on average, you're going to make a profit off 1700 in this spot. If you correctly estimated your opponents range, What about the check call? Well, you know that after your check, the button is gonna shovel in with all his hands that are beating you. And with about 80% of the hands that he missed, so the expected value ISS 0.75 times minus 6400 plus 64000.25 times 0.80 times 32,400 plus 0.20 times 26,000 which is 2980. So check call. It's actually better in this part. That's in the long run. It will earn you 1280 more than betting out. Okay, great. Let's sum up what you've learned. You now know that your decisions of the poker table should always be made so that you are maximizing the expected value. As you've seen in the example, it's sometimes better not to bet and go for a check. Oh, in a spot where it seems you should be betting you should always think about the range of fancier operates. Could have been a specific spot, and as the hand goes on, you can narrow it down significantly. Of course, the more experience you have and then more information. You have any opponent, the better you'll be able to estimate the range. Hey, thanks for watching this video. I really appreciate you taking the time to learn and get good at poker. I wanted to take the time and thank you for a dedication and ask how you do it. Do you see improvements in your game? Are you starting to feel more confident playing poker? Do you have any interesting hands you'd like to share with me? I love to hear some feedback from you guys, so please share some parts with me and I will see you in the next one. 4. Steal and Resteal: this video, we're gonna dive into the concept of stealing not like shoplifting or anything but stealing in poker, staying blinds and antes. So let's get right into it. Steel is a tournament play you make from late positions when you race with a junk hand on Lee to try and pick up the blinds and antes, it's a very effective and profitable play When don't properly in tournaments. The blinds and antes grow up so quickly that you simply cannot wait on Lee for premium hands because you've got blinded out. In order to maintain your stack, you have to utilize the steel. What factors should you consider when trying to steal the blinds? Definitely, your position is the most important. As from early positions, they're still just won't be very successful. The later your position is, the more likely it is that the still will work. You will have the most success from the cut off and the bottle. Another thing you should consider when stealing is who are the players on the blinds and especially the big blind? Does he defend his blind often, or does he folded unless he picks up a premium hand? If he's loose, aggressive stealing his blind becomes a bad play, a still defended or three but most of the time, best players to steal the blind from our type players, and the tighter they are, the more profitable to steal will be. What's also important is your image on the table. If your opponents have seen you play loosely and still blinds often, they'll be more likely to call you, so maybe you should wait for a premium hand to raise. On the other hand, if they think you're a nit meaning a very tight player, you can get away with stealing more as they will fear. You finally picked up aces you can you till I still the most when you have a big stock and you're stealing from short stocks because they won't be able to do anything about it unless they pick up a premium hand. And that will not happen too often. The best moment to destroy the shop stocks with your big stack by stealing lots of hands is on the bubble or close to it because they just want to get to the money, and they likely folk more than 95% of their hands. Let's look at an example of the steel. The blinds are 12 okay with 300 anti, which means there's 5.7 cave in the part before the cards are dealt. Everyone forced to you on the cut off you raise. With seven days off to 4300 you're still on. Lee has to work more than 43% of the time to be profitable. We've covered the steel. So now let's talk about the re steel. If you know that a specific opponent is stealing a lot, you may counter that with the re still again, the last players there are left toe. Act in the hand, the better. Most of recent years happen from the bottom and the blinds. In general. When we're stealing, you want to make sure you have a good read on your opponent that is based on your observations. You think it's very likely that he is stealing in this specific spot. Let's go back to our example. You raised with seven days off to 4.3 K and the player on the Big Blind who is a very tight player decides to use his image and make a reiss to you and he three beds to 10,500. He obviously can't call Seventies off, and so you fault, and he was a nice part. What it's worth mention is that his re still on Lee has to work a little over 51% of the time to show profit. And even if you have an actual hand and Mr Flub, he'll be able to pick up the part with a continuation. But a lot of the time, and that's all just using his very tight image. Okay, great. Let some of what you've learned stealing allows you to maintain your stack size in tournaments. It's a low risk, high reward play as long as you're stealing from late positions. The tighter the blinds are, the more profitable the steel becomes. Your ideal opponents are players who don't defend their blinds often, if you're not there comfortable. Yet with postal play on short stocks, you should try to avoid feeling from loose, aggressive players. If you have a big stack, you can really abuse the short stacks with stealing and is the tournament gets closer to the bubble, you can raise every single hand versus short stocks because they won't be able to respond unless they wake up with a really big hand. Good way to counter players who are stealing too much is too often. Three bad done. And that's the stealing. Hey, thanks for watching this lesson. If you have any questions or comments, please post them, and I'll be sure to answer them as best as I can. Remember to practice and tried to play for at least 30 minutes before watching the next one . Because it's really important that you practice that you integrate the knowledge you're getting here into your poker game. Good luck conceiving the next one. 5. Image at the Poker Table: in this video, we're gonna be talking about your image at the poker table and how you can use it to your advantage. So let's get right into it. Your image at the poker table is basically what you're up. Others think of you where they think you're nit or a maniac. When you seek at a new table all the thinking players will start to observe how you act in play and there quickly make assumptions about you, which with time they adjust. But remember, sometimes the first impression last for way too long. Why is it important to be aware of your image while you can use it to your advantage? Let's save set at the new table and during the 1st 2 rounds you've played 10 out of 18 hance. Each time you've had decent hands and were able to play them very aggressively, and you've wound up all now the whole table things you're a maniac in there. Be way more likely to call you down with much wider range. Just unusual. Capital offence. Ford. You're dealt pocket queens. Now you can just fully take advantage of your loose image. And when a type player with whom you've already played a couple of pops raises from middle position. You hope that he finally make a stand with the weaker than usual head and you'll be able to stock him. So you're three bad. He four beds. You shovel in and he calls with Ace Jack off suit. He would have never done this if it wasn't for her image. If you had a tight image, he would have likely folded the A jack off to the three bed. Now let's imagine a different situation. You said that a new table, and during the 1st 2 rounds you haven't played a single hand, not even from the blinds. Now your opponents are thinking you're a very type player and you have a hard time getting paid when you're dealt pocket Queens. But you can use your tied image to try and steal the blinds to three but light and definitely to bluff a little more because our players will respect your bets much more. Your table image is not only how you play, but also how you act at the table. For example, when you're talking a lot joking and having fun, you'll often be perceived as more of a loose player than, in fact, you are what's on the other hand, when you just sit quiet and don't move much, other players might make assumptions that you're in need. So remember to pay attention to how you are perceived at a table and also pay attention to all the other players and be aware of their image. Let it help you make your decisions. But Deng gets too much credit to it. Unless you've played a lot with someone and you have a pretty good idea of how they play. Because otherwise, you know that good players would try to manipulate their image and use it to make place. Personally, I think it's good to give off a list image when you're sitting at the new table because you're opulence might just make the mistake and give you too much credit because of the first impression, even when you're talking up later. Okay, great. That's some of what you've learned. Your image at the poker table is what your opponent think of you as a play. If you have a loose image, it will be easier for you to play big parts because people assume you like to gamble more. And if you have a type image, you might have trouble getting paid in spots where you have the nuts. You know a couple of tricks that you can use to see more lose or more tight in that it is very important to be perceived as a looser player than you really are. If you're going to be playing tight, aggressive poker, first impression lasts. So it might make sense to start off really loose if that's the image you want to plant in your opponent's hats. Hey, thanks for watching this video. I really appreciate you taking the time to learn and get good at poker. I wanted to take the time and thank you for a dedication and ask how you do. Do you see improvements in your game? Are you starting to feel more confident playing poker? Do you have any interesting hands you'd like to share? I'd love to hear some feedback from you guys, so please share some parts with me and I will see you in the next four 6. Implied Odds: in these media. We're gonna briefly discussed something called Imply it Out. So let's get right into it. Imply it. Arts are based on the possibility off winning money on later streets. If you think you can win a lot of money from opponents if you make your drove, you have good implied thoughts. On the other hand, if you think your opponent will not pay you off if you hit your drove, then you have body implied outs. So having good implied arts, they help you justify a cold. That is incorrect when you consider part arts. Let's see an example of that. Your head's up out of position with 45 and the flop comes Queen six. Trey, your opponent is a type player, and he bets the pop. You're getting 2 to 1 ox. So based on parts on Lee, you shouldn't call. But you know that your opponent is a type player in his range is very strong here with apart sized back. So you deduce your implied part. Arts are good, and you call hoping that if you catch your straight, he's gonna pay you for it. An example of body imply it ops would be if you had the same hand, but the flop came 789 Now they only have a god shop. So you're part outs are really bad, and your implied ups are almost non existent. Because even if you hit that got shot, your opponent is not gonna pay off with a worse hand because the board will be just too scary. Still, in general, when you're thinking whether you have good or bad implied outs in hand, think about how concealed your hand is. Is your opponent a good player or a bad one? And if you hit your hand, will he pay it off or not? Reverse implied Arts described the opposite situation, so how much you could expect to lose. They occur when you have a marginal hand and think you're best at the moment, but you're open. It keeps betting at you. You're not really sure where you add in the hand you have little chance of improving, and you know you're open and may keep on betting or not. So, on your beat you lose a lot, and when you have the best hand, you in the minimum, let's look at an example, you have a pair of kings, and the flop comes Do stray for You're open in bed south to you. You should still probably call this one bed, but you definitely have body reverse and Platt offs. And if you're opening bets again on the turn, it's better to just throw your king's away and wait for a better spot. Okay, great. Let some of what you've learned imply it out are important games where stocks are deep. They can help you justify calling in spots where your parents are not to boot. They can also help you decide not to build big parts in sports, where the board is scary and it's unlikely or open. It will pay you off if the drugs complete. Reverse implied outs described how much you could expect to lose on later streets and help you avoid playing big ports With media off her hands. It's sometimes an access to fall a strong hand when you don't really know where you're at in your opponent is showing a lot of strength. Hey, thanks for watching this lesson. If you have any questions or comments, please go ahead and post them and I'll be sure to try and answer them as best as I can. Also remember to place much as you can during this class so they can really practice the concepts we're talking about and because there's just hiding, learning poker. That's how you think. Bad at poker through hours. Spending the tables. The class project is just 1000 hands, so that should be no problem for you. But if you play morning, that that's great, because it would simply be more beneficial to also make sure to save the most interesting hands is your plane, because you will need them for the class project. You were three of these, and because I will be selecting the best ones, the most interesting ones and analyzing them for so enjoy the game and I will see you in the next one. 7. Check Raise: this video will discuss, the check writes. It's a powerful play, and it will make your opulence fear you, but only for using it correctly. So let's get right into it. Check. Race is a play you make when you're out of position and you check with the intention of raising when your opponent bets. You can use display either for value or as a bluff. Let's first discuss the check raise bluff. I don't recommend using it doing your first couple 1000 off hands as it's an advanced play , and you should have decent experience before you start using it. In general, you should pick spots where your head's up and you feel that your opponent either has a weak hand or that he has a medium strength hand but is likely to folded. If you check race, you should definitely Onley use it occasionally as it's a very expensive play when it fails , but using it really will allow for more of your value check raises to get cold. You can also check. Race is a semi bluff when you have a draw, and I think most of your bluff check raises should be semi gloss as then you at least have a chance off heating the best hand when the play doesn't work and you get called. Let's examine an example off a bluff check race you raised with 89 Suited and an aggressive player on the bottom calls you and the Flood comes Ace King three. You know that the player on the bottom cause with a wide range of hands there and you know that he will bet most of the time if you check to him. You don't think he could have strong aces there as sure if re raise them most of the time. Pre flop. You think that the only strong hands in his range could be pocket threes and a three suited maybe King three suited. But you don't think he's this loss.
