One of the things which they say is quite rare, is how in his opinion about the advantages we rely on simple assumptions. At the strategic level, we make assumptions about your opponent's range in a certain situation or about how an opponent will react to this or that action on our part, or to behave in a hydrochloric environment. We also make assumptions concerning psychology, although many of them closely linked to the assumptions relating to the level of strategy, and others depend on our subconscious image analysis of the people we encounter in everyday life.
But the most important assumptions are probably the ones that we make for ourselves. We can assume that we have an advantage in skill before a certain player that would be reasonable in some cases, and it is illogical to others, or to make the assumption that we have an advantage in skill in front of a whole field of a particular event or a particular composition cash games. We can decide that certain aspects of our personality traits or our playing style in this or that situation gives us a psychological advantage. But the big question is, how true our assumptions about ourselves, and here the theme of "invisible benefits".
The reason introspection poker so important is that in the absence of this kind of activity is a more important problem than in real life is a poker table. Perhaps the most obvious example of an aspect in which the poker table, you will need introspection, is the creation of the image. We spend a lot of time thinking about how to perceive our opponents playing style, to better adapt to the adjustment that we expect from them. For example, a lack of self-analysis, which prevent us to understand that our image fell apart after it was opened by our three barrel bluff may result from the use of extremely unfavorable bluffs in the future.
