Sklansky, Zeebo, Baluga, Clarkmeister....

For examle, I almost always use Clarkmeister/Baluga (forget it if play Holdem with me:)).
How often do you use in practice so-called poker theorems? Maybe, based on grate personal experience, you can formulate your own one?

Good question. I don't have a theorem yet. Some theorems are useful and others are not. Moreover, some theorems may lose their effectiveness over time. While many theorems can help you in certain situations, it is important not to rely on theorems alone, as the winning player uses all of his knowledge of the game to choose the best solutions.

I think the best theorem for poker is systemic luck.

I don't use it. I don't even know what it is? In the game, I use intuition and common sense. I calculate my chances of winning in my mind. I think maybe he's bluffing. Based on this, I make a final decision about the action.

Agree with you. For sure its usage up to the specific situation at the table. Some of them are still useful, at least for me. Thanks for giving your opinion and gl.

I do not use any theorems. I rely only on my own experience and skills, and thanks to this I have good enough results and my bankroll is growing steadily.

I have a few rules of my own that I always follow.
1. I only play poker when I'm in a good mood.
2. I always wait patiently for good situations and strong cards.
3. I always follow the bankroll management system and play only for the money I can afford to spend.
Thanks to such simple rules, I can easily control my emotions, get pleasure from the game and my bankroll is growing steadily.

Thank for sharing. Real respect to #3. It seems important for many players (unfortunately for me as well still). Good luck.

Hello. I have used theories, read books, stuudied my stats. No matter how I look at it, it all still points toward Sklansky's chart. Good luck with these.

Oh, a very hot question these days, I often use Balug's Theorem. She helps me to make my game more professional, great post.

I think that Sklansky's Fundamental Theorem of Poker is something that always applies whether you're consciously thinking about it or not. The idea is just that you want your opponents to make mistakes (play incorrectly based on what you're holding) and you want to play correctly given their actual hand.

Thanks for an expert's opinion. It's always nice to hear clear inferences from intricate sentences. :icon_stud.
