re: Poker & Does anyone think this is a good training method?
the main issue i see is when watching online your not seeing the cards dealt except at showdown, so how will you know what the exploitable weaknesses are?
also each game has its own merit, i have joined 2c 4c tables, raised 15x and expected to get 2 callers, and at other times i have raised frequently (at the same stakes because the players were just playing too tight
on another note, the high stakes players will use advanced tactics but it only works because its against certain opponents,
so for instance, you raise it up on a high stakes games you may watch em re raise with 7 2s if the opponent is loose enough and it works because they dont expect a call
however in low stakes, if you tried the same thing they overestimate the power of there hands, ive had a guy float on a board with queen high, and tie himself to the pot because he has hit the 2 on the turn (thats his kicker)
