From the Vault: Old Hold'em Manager 1 Articles
A recent hand analysis thread reminded me of a series of articles that were originally released with Hold'em Manager 1 to help use the software. However, they also contained some valuable tips on how to suck less.
There were 8 articles in the series, and many of them are out of date, or are particular to running Hold'em Manager filters. However, the one I enjoyed the most is "Analysis - Facing a preflop 3-bet." It is a discussion of how typical players 3-bet in various positions, and a game theory optimal analysis for proper 4-betting frequencies. It's where the infamous chart
that I post if someone asks "I got 3-bet, should I ____?" comes from.
I've included the article as a pdf file below. Also, if you want the other original articles, I've included links to them as well.
Articles 1-3 (http://faq.holdemmanager.com/categories/Learn+Hold%27em+Manager/Hold%27em+Manager+Overview/HM+Articles/)
Articles 4-8 in Word Format (http://www.filedropper.com/articles)
They're quite useful, as they detail how to make quick approximations on the fly, given stats that converge quickly. I really think they're worth a read if you're above 10NL. You should be able to easily understand where the information comes from and how it was obtained.
