I bought this book by Michael Acevedo, and I really like that it is so focused on poker math and GTO principals. However, I'm really having trouble reading it because it is just not that fun to read. It is a ton of math, which I love but too much of it just makes it boring!
Anyone have this book? How did you approach it. Did you get value from it?
I've not read it myself, but I have seen a few people say that it's not a book you can just read, digest and implement. Take one concept, really invest yourself in it and make sure you completely understand it and then put it into practice. Once you have mastered it, then you can move on to the next section. If you try to read the whole thing, you'll probably never finish it and you certainly won't be able to implement into your game.
It's not the outcome of the hand that's important; it's how you got there that defines whether you played it well or not.
