I have been told to put players on hands if you can , it is a skill to acquire.
But I have been hearing the teaching has been to not put them on hands but ranges. why stop at ranges when the next step is putting them on hands.
Shouldnt we be getting the hand ranges down before the turn and before we have a quarter of our stack in the middle. I like to play with the game as much in my favor as possible .
If it takes work and practice then thats what I will do to be a better player and one day I will be play for good money live and may make a living at it.
If I play on hope, ( I hope I am ahead , I hope luck wins the pot for me , I hope I made the right moves against this player , I hope the deck gives me my card I already have all my chips in the middle. )
This is what I dont like playing with ... Hope .
It is up to me and my reads and knowing how others play and how I play. My play is what will make or break me. Not LUCK or the deck but my skill I have taken time to develope and work on to get to the level to do things that others feel are impossible to do .
Funny a freind and I was just talking about this and how many players have put a block on things and cant get past some of the basic things that need known but needs to be put off to the side to play other ways for reasons that would be hard to explain unless you are on that level of understanding .
Good Skill at the table
