What Is The Current STATE OF POKER?

Poker Strategy Info And Source:

In this video I discuss the state of poker in 2021 and what the future might hold for our beautiful game in a post COVID world.

Many small poker rooms are closing in Vegas and the demand for tournaments is at an all time high.

I think that the games will change drastically in just over a year when the recreational poker players cease to play in tournaments as they will have used their ‘bankroll’ in bigger live tournaments.

It is important to make sure you are being very selective with the games that you decide to play. Pick games that you think that you can beat, play lots of them & make sure you have an appropriate bankroll.

What Is The Current STATE OF POKER?

  1. What do you think the future holds for poker? Are we going to see any big changes because of COVID?

  2. Hey Jonathan, GREAT content here! I have been a rec. player for many years. One time I made it to a BIG tournament, it was at the M Resort for $2500. buy-in, which I won the buy-in online. I sat across from a guy named Jonathan Little (that was cool). I also met Evan Jarvis in the hallway. Saw Jesse Sylvia there, etc, etc. I have had my ups and downs, my highs and lows throughout the years playing poker. I have learned to throw emotions out the window. This game isn't for the weak-hearted or the weak-minded. What happened 5 mins ago in a hand should be forgotten like the toy you had when you were a child. It's about picking up information and jotting it down in your brain and keeping it stored up there. As a cash game player, what should be my starting bankroll going into games like $5.BB $1000. max. buy-in? #PROTECTYOURSELFBEFOREYOUWRECKYOURSELF

  3. Sometimes I think poker is not profitable at the low cash game levels. I was stock around a bankroll of 400 bugs for 3 months (50K hands) But since I put a lot of technical and mental game study volume things seems to be changed. One and half year ago I started at 50 bugs, now I am almost at 1000 bugs (984). Especially the last 2 months (50K hands) I won an average off 10bb/100 at 5nl. So hopefully its not only an upswing. When I am higher than 1000 bugs bankroll i'll moving to 10nl tables. I tried it a couple of times (lasttime 2 months ago) but were not able to beat it right than. Hopefully all the study has made a difference. My midterm goal (2 years from now): Play 50NL 10K hands a week and win approximately 1K per month. I do have a good job and two little children and a real poker carreer is not a prio at the moment (but it is my most important hobby). I am playing at party poker. During day (and morning time) it is really hard to find enough 5nl max 6 cashgame tables. Hopefully this will be better next months otherwise I probably going to Pokerstars (but need holden manager when I do)

    I hear what your saying, and I appreciate you saying it.

  5. I have no idea what the future of poker is … but I'd love to have a clear plan for my poker future. I'm okay at poker. I play online every day and have taken myself from not knowing anything six years ago to becoming a small-winning player. But I'm not winning enough. And I don't know the game enough. And I want to be great. So where do I start.

    I have a library of poker books … but have only read two to completion (Grinder's Manual and The Course). I just started on Tipton's books. I have a Sweeney math workbook. My bf has JL's book and courses. I have watched videos, tried a few lessons from some other courses, etc, but haven't found ones the formula that keeps me engaged and not bored/not overwhelmed. Often times, I watch a video and I didn't get anything new from it (any poker video … not JL's videos). So, I get frustrated and feel like I wasted my time. Other times, it's over-the-top and too advanced for me. So, again, I get nothing because I don't have the foundation for that topic.

    Not everyone learns the same. For me, I'd do best with a 1-on-1 coach. I'd have to be accountable and show up prepared. That's always been my best bet. Unfortunately, that's not an option … unless I have a ton of money (I don't) and, if I had the money, actually knew where to find a poker coach who would give me lessons. I feel defeated. I feel there is a ton of info out there … but I don't know how to approach it in the best manner that will help me improve in the most efficient and helpful way.

    I've had the sickest losses in my life recently in live poker. Fifteen large pots where I was, at minimum, 80% favorite for all of them (most were 83 plus, three I was a 92, 93 and 98% … yes, the second one outer I lost to this year in the same sick manner) … money all in … and I lost. It hurt my bankroll but even worse, it completely shook my confidence in poker. I didn't win a single big pot all-in where I was a huge favorite. I'm a female … and I feel that I might get chased down a bit more when I'm at the games I play. I have played several times at five different casinos this year. But I primarily play house games – there is no casino close by. The house games are comprised of mostly loose guys, with a mississippi straddle and uncapped buy-ins. (I think the uncapped buy-in puts me at a disadvantage.) Those aren't the games I want to play but those are my only options. Unfortunately, it's devastated my game. I took two plus months off, came back, and had the same exact experience. Five days ago, I lost $600 in one pot to a rivered flush by the very spooky 73s! I don't think I played the hand incorrectly … I could have jammed the turn but he would never have folded … and it would be the same outcome. But that hand, that was the proverbial nail in the coffin for me. I cannot play until 1) I have a bigger bankroll and 2) I have an edge.

    So what's the starting point? How does one take the next two months to go from small-winning player to super solid player? What's the plan one should follow? Because … poker is a complex game with so many different elements. What's the best way to tackle it? There are ranges, preflop play, postflop play, solvers which are crucial, math which is crucial, etc … how do you have a well-rounded plan that makes sense that tackles all of it?

    I feel overwhelmed. Yet, I love poker so much … I'm willing to get where I want to be however I have to.
