The Problem with The Math of Holdem

By on Aug 11, 2011 in Featured, Poker, Team Moshman | 0 comments

I really do like Collin and Doug’s book The Math of Holdem.   I still haven’t finished it, but  that’s mostly cause I’m trying to read like 17 books at once and keep getting distracted.   But I do think it overlooked a very important, albeit recent, contribution to the world of mathematics and how it affects the poker world.   How can we poker players reasonably be expected to delve into the mysteries of the poker world without a thorough understanding of this equation?     I expect to see an addendum in the second printing.   *********   Feel free to bounce over to teammoshman.com to leave comments on the cross...

Vegas Vacation – Part 1

By on Jun 17, 2011 in Featured, Poker, Team Moshman | 0 comments

I don’t know if there are words in the English language that will help me fully articulate just how much fun this week here in Vegas has been, but I shall try anyway.   After arriving on Sunday and spending way too much time in lines to get my rental car, I was finally able to make the trek to where I was staying. Since it wasn’t too far from the Collin and Katie‘s we ended up going to lunch and then Katie and I went shopping. Now, normally shopping is not something I’m a fan of (if it can’t be bought off Amazon I usually can’t be bothered) but this was shopping with a purpose. Katie had recently decided that she wanted to learn to golf and this trip was all about getting the “little” things that you don’t realize that you need: shoes, balls, tees, glove, etc. We managed to find a pair of shoes that Katie was happy with, fit well and were pink...

Missing out on +EV spots.

By on Jan 20, 2010 in Featured, Team Moshman | 0 comments

Originally posted on teammoshman.com ******* I was working with a couple of students last night, drilling on recognizing the very +EV spots that they had been missing, and it got me to thinking about the snow wheeling trip I mentioned in my last blog.   First of all, we had an absolute blast.  If you’ve never been a riding in a vehicle that’s tipped at about a 33 degree angle, you are really missing out on one of life’s simple pleasures.     We ended up leaving after work on Friday and drove a few hours to get where we had initially planned on camping.  There was one small problem.  No snow.  Now a couple of us had been watching the weather forecasts all week and were well aware that there was supposed to be a pretty big storm moving in.  We quickly decided that snow was better than ran and that we needed to go up.  The plan was to camp at Wentworth Springs, at one of the ends of the...
