Elements

Autor: | 18/11/2011

Tommy Angelo a fost antrenorul lui Phil Galfond (Jman28). Metodele sale sint unice iar pretul pe masura (7000$). Grosul lectiilor se tin fata in fata (Las Vegas) si nu la telefon sau prin email. “Studentii” lui chiar joaca la aceeasi masa cu el la un moment dat.

Cartea ‘Elements of Poker’ cuprinde sfaturi asemanatoare programului sau de training. Ni se ofera practic 144 de lectii, denumite elemente.
Tip original, Tommy inventeaza termeni precum “6th Street”, “Hijack”, “mum poker”, “fastfold”, “bliscipline”, “tiltlessness”.

Tilt-ul este definit de T.Angelo ca fiind orice forma care duce la derivarea de la cel mai bun joc de tip A-game.
O persoana este capabila de trei tipuri de joc: A-game, B-game si C-game. Pokeristii sint la A-game cind se simt bine si joaca bine, la C-game cind joaca slab si se simt rau iar B-game este stadiul intermediar. Angelo incearca sa ne ajute la C-game considerind ca pierzind mai putin inseamna practic cistiguri mai mari.
“Whenever you lop off some C-game, you increase the percentage of time you spend playing your A-game,” spune Angelo. “This means that the work put into your A-game will pay a higher return by being put into play more often.”

“Everybody tilts; to make money from tilt, you dont’t need to be tiltless. But you do have to tilt less”.

“To win at poker, you have to be very good at losing.”

Poate cel mai important aspect prezentat in carte este parasirea jocului de cash imediat ce propriul joc se deterioreaza.
O alta parte interesanta din carte  este cea referitoare la pokerul live. Tommy ne arata cum sa oferim si sa primim respect la masa, cum sa nu divulgam informatii despre jocul nostru (“mum poker”) si unde sa ne indreptam atentia la masa de joc.

Apoi mai gasim informatii despre limit, no limit. Desi e sincer si spune ca prefera cashul in locul turneelor, Angelo are un capitol foarte interesant denumit “The Dollar Value of a Stack”.

Relatia “respiratie – minte – tilt” va va surprinde cu siguranta.

Intr-un fel, putem considera Elements of Poker o continuare a cartii ‘Ace on the River’ (B. Greenstein).
