I think these type of videos help you as well not just for the fact that you get subscribers and you can make more money but as you are probably well aware the highest level of learning and knowing that you're an expert at something is when you are able to teach it to others so I think this not only helps the community in general from being less of fish but it helps you also get to your next level which I can't even imagine what that is. either way I very much appreciate your videos I'll continue to watch them good luck polk October 3, 2016 Reply url_fanatic u r the man tho in all srsness, no arse licking, but your opening up my poker brain, I'm going to be interested in my stats pre subscribing to doug polk and post 🙂 October 3, 2016 Reply TheMasterNinjaRyu Superbly explained Doug.

October 3, 2016 Reply DeathBySlushPuppy Mastery is a moving target 😉 October 3, 2016 Reply Fei Li What do you think about using HUD while playing ?It happened to me that, while I was using it, I wasn't a winning player, and when I one day decided to try to play some zooms without it I start winning and am a constant small winner until today without HUD progams.I guess I looked too much at numbers without really considering actual situation on the board those days.Did that happend to anyone else here ? October 3, 2016 Reply The Cheeseman value-town baby! October 3, 2016 Reply Mr Wool Awesome! cleared up where i'm losing money in 13 minutes,. I need stop playing 6max nl while playing spin and goes with a tournament on the side, and also just lately live cash games have crept in to the schedule.. Only playing 6 max NL online for me is the best option then, as I've been crushing those games because i've studied it the most, and is my most enjoyable. Before i'd do well in 6 max, but then play spins or tourneys and lose what i made in the 6max games. From now on 1 topic 1 focus. 'Jack of all trades but a master of none' seems to be the apt phrase here. Doug i think i actually love you lol October 3, 2016 Reply ONE lick Rick how to win at poker……………………don't play!!!!!!

I really just started playing seriously this month and have already won a 70 person MTT and a final table chop in a second one, as well as good results in cash games. Really looking forward to going further, and content creators such as yourself really help to speed the process! October 3, 2016 Reply upplsuckimcool16 I can answer that question based on what I've seen from all these internet"pro's" You win at poker by getting it in with the worst of it and sucking out 90% of the time with the edge given to them by their sponsor poker site. Take tonaaaap for instance, how often do you see him go into a flip with the best of it? like 10% of thetime and still he wins 90% of the time. October 3, 2016 Reply smaakmakend awesome new series doug!: quiestion! if i may: u talked about 30-50 buyin's on average seems good for cashgame's what are you thought's on live cashgame's offcourse it's easyer to beat but u also have to concider ppl can buy in double or triple "startstack" does this mean i have to bring more or less buyin's to the table? October 3, 2016 Reply Aaron Nethersole Hey Doug, Id like to hear you talk about "tilt" and how you cope and / or how we should handle it, keep up the great work mate! October 3, 2016 Reply Shem Goltz Hey Doug, I've got a question for you. Lets say I have a bankroll of $100 and I bink a tournament for another $400, now my bankroll is $500. How much of it should I cash out and how much of it should I keep as my bankroll? I tend to do the 50/50 style but would love to know your opinion in this matter 🙂 Thanks! – Shem October 3, 2016 Reply Dan's Poker & Motorcycle VLOG Doug, What site should I play on?

December 1, 2016 Reply Adam Y. I feel like a solid player at NL tourney hold em. If I don't cash I got unlucky more than likely. I seem to always get knocked out around the 30-40 ppl mark no many how many ppl started the tourney and it seems to always be a bad beat that gets me knocked out around this point so annoying. I do have one win 10 dollar rebut tourney with 4200 ppl on partypoker in 2006, best cash payday ever. But anymore 5 dollar max buyin PLO is my bread and butter. I make average 30-40 daily 2 hr sessions. But if I move up to 10 dollar buyin I don't do as well. Idk anymore. Cash game Hold em I break even no matter the stakes.

I'm coming back to the game (micro SNG NL Holdem) after getting taught it ~10 years ago and it's changed and videos like this give me insight and inspiration about how I might be able to improve from being a marginal loser. February 12, 2017 Reply Jack Griffin OK. this is a naive-type question. I play cash games at the Atlantic City casinos. I see regulars. Should I be concerned at all about collusion, or cheating, or anything? Is the playing field generally honest? Anything I should be looking out for?

If people understood truly that this game isn't solved, and brought down to those two, that is taking something with billions apon billions of concepts and turning it into the final two. Awesome video, I wish that 2nd half was a video by itself. Hard to keep telling people go to minute 8-9 ish. Of all the years playing pro, I never actually thought or heard of it like that. Truly appreciate just hearing the extremly boiled version of what we are actually trying to accomplish. Awesome videos as always. (P.s. please make more comical videos for your funny playlist. "Don't do that. Never do this. Pretty much study this hand and don't do any of it" not exact quotes, but honest came to your channel sometimes just for some laughs. Have fun.

NLHE is the only form i really play ( kill time in Limit holdem waiting for a NL seat ), but i love both tourneys and cash.. if no tourney is up for the rest of the nite i want to play, i sit in a cash game.. i prefer tourneys overall.. but dont see TOO many holes in my cash game that suffer as a result of playing in tourneys..hope you DO come "Back to the Fold" and put out some more video blogs on poker… i have read a lot of the top books.. and still re-read them as i see serious value in them still today. you just have to NOW, go more to the range, the position, etc,etc,etc, than some of the tips in the books have showed. June 15, 2018 Reply The Pioneer Channel What about non suited connectors as a topic lol been getting to find something on it but can't.. just suited connectors July 12, 2018 Reply Michael Angst poker is not a job you love… I have Had plenty of suicidal thought over the years on my way to pass 200k profits lifetime….. it can make you hate everything and everyone in your life when things are going bad. People act like making 20k a year isn' hard.. hahahahahah.. It's extremely difficult to make that much now and it still was a few years ago. and 20k is pretty bottom of the barrel for an income. The more of a bankroll you have the easier it is to win and less time you have to take to do it, since you can play higher stakes etc, but if your goal is say start with 20k and make 20k that year grinding away with propper bankroll management. It's a fuckin misery of job the amount of thinking and studying you have to do after sessions is ridiculous, not to mention handling bad beats and horrible runs the best way you can…… Not worth it for anyone but the person who wants to put poker first before everything else in their life.
