To get information that's usually considered cutting edge, it's often good to discuss topics more candidly with experts forging new thoughts on well established theories.
Books of course mostly deal with this problem but the time gap between solidifying new theories and publishing that material can sometimes make the work seem more like conventional knowledge as the pace of discovery becomes quicker & quicker, making todays edge seem like tomorrows leak. It seems as though people are too reliant on the commonly known easily accessed sources and aren't challenging themselves enough with more complex study and self discovery.
It's only by combining new ideas with the old do we create notable advances in our abilities. To that end I'd like to know what resources you've found that standout above the rest that you consider to provide valuable topical material for poker players?
- What I'm hoping to discover are insightful bloggers, tweeters, peer-reviewed journals, eminent writers, amongst whatever else you often refer to when learning. Direct affiliation to poker topics is good but isn't necessary.
- I'm not expecting to see a plain list of favourites only due to their writing style, humour, wit, popularity, etc. although useful sources with these additional benefits would clearly be brilliant.
As long as you feel that what you suggest is current, relevant, and can offer substantive information that can help poker players in any/all areas of focus, whether that's Maths, Psychology, Strategy. Anything. Then it would be of great value to share them here.
Personally, an obvious choice would be Poker.StackExchange.com. Not so much for what it is right now but absolutely for what I imagine it could become! It has huge potential. I've also found the Social Science Research Network has given me many cognitive science scholarly articles that have helped me think creatively.
For each link/example it would be helpful to give a little information on the area of expertise you think it addresses, and perhaps how it helped you.
