My interpretation is that mathematically, the expectation in EV is taken across the probability distribution of poker cards that are yet to be dealt in a particular hand as well as the randomness in opponents' play, and it is assumed that every other piece of information (including situation, position, etc) you can have is already taken into account when you ...

If everyone is folding to your raises more often than they should, raise more hands. This is particularly true if you have tighter players on your left and action is folded to you. You can either steal blinds pre-flop or win post-flop with a single continuation bet many times when your opponent misses. Sometimes when you have a great hand like AA, nobody ...

There can be a few approaches that people use when deciding when to pack up and leave. Like yourself people get to a certain amount won and are happy and leave. For me personally I'll stop when I no longer feel I have an edge over the table, I feel tired, the game is slowing down/breaking or when I no longer feel I am playing the best I can play. I think its ...

No, the EV is the EV. But probability is a function of knowledge. Your estimate of the likelihood of the various events that go into your calculation of EV will change over time with new information, so that what may seem like the "same situation" to you at different times might actually be a very different situation when you take into account your added ...

In this case "short term" implies that you may have specific situational context that might be relevant to this narrow class of decisions. Say you're in a NLHE game and you have aces pre-flop and you know that you're sitting immediately to the right of a a big-stacked aggressive opponent who will very often punish your limp with a big raise. Since he's been ...

If they have cards but no money left they're all in and thus the other player cannot bet more to make them fold. Whatever money was in the pot before the other player bet is all the money the person with trips can win. The player without any money left cannot be bet out of the hand. Run the cards out and see who has the best hand, if trips person ends up ...

I would suggest Save everything to a database so you can write whatever kind of query you want about a hand. make the number of bots from one to nine rather just five. Let the player change the seats of particular robots Let the player decide the texture of the bots, rather then forcing them to play with a set number of aggressive bots let the player ...

I'm not familiar with .NET and stuff. I probably should mention that I'm not a professional programmer myself. But there surely are a lot of great libraries in pure C. Using C++ and i5 CPU I personally get about 4.4 million hands/s in Monte Carlo with 3 players and 2.3 million with 6 players. But that's just raw unoptimized Monte-Carlo. Brute-force ...

I would wait as long as possible to buy in and focus on making it to the time of the add-on. I'd approach the question this way--how many chips do you expect to have after level 6 and what do you expect to spend for either of the following two scenarios: 1) you buy in right away or 2) you wait until as long as you can. For the second scenario, assume ...

It sounds like you're playing against really loose aggressive players (very typical in zoom, along with very tight players. Not much middle ground) One good way to play against them is to wait for really premium hands and be super aggressive. So if they raise, raise them back. If they come over the top, I like to just call and then bet big/raise on the flop. ...

This happens to everybody in poker at times. It is important to keep your cool during periods like this and just keeping making the correct folds. Most players at these stakes are really passive and they usually have exactly what they are representing.

Going by probabilities where the expected value is the average of the sums of all possible outcomes in the set, the standard application of EV in poker is for hand analysis, meaning did I make the right decision based on the current pot, cards, and previous play. In this sense we are dealing with constant values and your best estimation of the opponent and ...

For me, the best way to play Aces is to sometimes limp-in and other times raising preflop. In the games I play, if I raise 15 to 20 it doesn't surprise me to to get 3 to 5 callers. The problem I run into, is let's say I get 3 callers of 20 dollars, now there 80 in the pot and, even with a good flop for Aces, it's so hard to know where my opponents are at. ...

EV is a mathematical term that only makes sense on the long run. In probability theory, the expected value of a random variable is intuitively the long-run average value of repetitions of the experiment it represents Thus there's just one value of EV which more or less translate to "the expected total value if we were to repeat this draw an infinite (or in ...
