Hole Cards Confessions Study Group: Introduction
This is the beginning of the Cards Chat study group of “Hole Card Confessions” by Drag the Bar instructor Owen Gaines. Each week we will be covering two sections of the book and Owen will be joining us in the threads to answer questions.
I will be posting brief summaries of the material to be discussed in the OP of each thread. I will not be regurgitating the whole book so people don't have to read it. I will not be quoting long sections of copyrighted material. The goal is to give each thread a starting point; not to reproduce the book for free for anyone who finds the thread.
If you haven't already gotten your copy of “Hole Card Confessions” you can purchase it at Owen's site. http://qtippoker.com/
Owen, and most participants have indicated that the first 34 pages of the book are very basic and don't need a lot of attention. However Owen suggested that we create a thread for it to help newer players who come to the thread.
This thread is for pages 1-34 and covers:
1. The two keys to successful poker.
2. 10 ways to gain information.
3. Different environments.
4. Levels of Thinking.
5. Player Types
6. How to categorize players.
