I plan to talk about both. I honestly am not sure how deep into the actual math we will get.. this first time will be a trial run. If it goes well I might get to teach it a couple more times.
I do plan to talk about psychological aspects, definitely.
To put this in perspective.. I'm not really expecting alot of these people to be able to tell me what pot odds
, implied odds, possibly even expected value
are. I do expect them to be able to tell me what hands beat what for example. So I will spend a fair amount of time dealing with things on more of a conceptual than an in-depth look at the mathematics of things although this isn't to say we won't get into some math.
Another topic I would want to talk about would be tournament vs ring.
Again I'm really in the brainstorming phase and don't want to lead this thread too much (other than just getting it started ). Basically I can do whatever I want to with it, but the above should give you an idea of the rough caliber of player I expect to be getting. Just thought it would be interesting to see if any ideas I haven't thought of get thrown out in here on what would be good to include.
