How do you make the best decisions while playing poker? Well, thinking of it from a mathematical perspective can help.
In this class, we'll consider how 1) the size of antes should change the way you think; 2) bluffing (sometimes, but not always) can help; 3) position matters; 4) probabilities should change the way you behave. Come learn how to be a better poker player!
M10563: The Math Behind Poker in Splash 2016 (Nov. 19  20, 2016)
How do you make the best decisions while playing poker? Well, thinking of it from a mathematical perspective can help.
In this class, we'll consider how 1) you can use the odds of winning when on a drawing hand to decide whether or not to fold, call, or raise; 2) the number of other players remaining in the hand can affect the relative value of starting hands; 3) your stack size can affect the way you play; 4) tournaments and cash games are different and 5) bluffing (sometimes, but not always) makes sense.*
