Blockers - Mastering Small Stakes No-Limit Hold'em Excerpt

You are probably wondering why Q-6o and Q-5o are in the limp/3-betting range. It is because they do not fit cleanly into the other ranges, plus they have a bit of blocker value. A “blocker” is a card that makes it more difficult for your opponent to have a strong hand. While Aces and Kings are the main blockers that you should be concerned with, when facing a wide range, Queens and Jacks become relevant as well.



Slow Playing is Risky

Today I am going to share with you a hand I played last year in a $1,000 side event at the Hard Rock in Hollywood Florida. Up until this point, my table had been fairly tight and passive. No one was too crazy.

Everyone folded to me in second position at a nine-handed table and I raised to 375 out of my 9,000 effective stack at 75/150 with Ks-Qs. The cutoff and button both called. The blinds folded.

Turning Pro - Life's a Gamble Excerpt

~ “Nick the Greek” Dandolas

After the Army and the six-month stint with my dad, I moved back to Fayetteville, NC, worked as a military sales rep, and got married to a local girl, Pam Sharpe. I taught ballroom dancing part time, but I also managed to find some home poker games.



I was recently told about a hand that illustrates a clear mistake that some amateurs make while working to improve their strategies. Our particular Hero was working on making thin value bets when this hand took place.

With blinds at 400/800, a loose, passive player limped from first position out of his 40,000 effective stack. Another loose passive player limped from second position. Our Hero decided to call from the hijack seat with Ks-Tc.

Poker is War - Advanced Concepts in No-Limit Hold'em Excerpt

People say chess has a lot of similarities to war. I’d say poker has more of them. A war is a conflict fought with imperfect information. Nothing is hidden in chess; however, there’s a lot of imperfect information in poker. If you view poker as a battle, the similarities are astounding.
