What are the odds of winning at poker if you don’t know the odds in poker?

Practical Poker Math provides a complete and easy-to-understand explanation of the basic odds, probabilities and expectations in Hold’Em and Omaha. All the formulations are completely open and are demonstrated via easy-to-follow, colour-coded calculations.

Pat Dittmar has aimed this book at beginning through semi-pro players who want to improve their results and who know that there is not much chance of improvement without a fundamental understanding of poker odds, probabilities, and expectations.

Pat Dittmar is head of trading and development at TradePointTechnologies.com, an organization that develops and deploys state-of-the-art proprietary trading technologies. Pat feels that successful poker players possess the skills required to play in the one true fast action, around the world, around the clock “Big Game” – the world financials markets, and TradePointTechnologies recruits its traders exclusively from the poker world.

Their opponent was a piece of software called Libratus, running a

Why It’s Hard to Recognize the Unlikely

Whenever I fly, I like to talk to the person sitting next to me. Once in a while, I find that we know at least one person in common. If you are like me, perhaps coincidences such as this happen in your life as well. The most unusual coincidence in my life took place when I flew from Boston, my home, to Chicago to meet Scott Isenberg, the new editor assigned to revise a statistics textbook I had authored a few years earlier.

A program called Libratus took on four of the best poker players in the country, at a tournament at the Rivers Casino in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. They were playing a form of poker called heads-up no-limit Texas hold ‘em, where two players face off, often online, in a long series of hands, testing each other’s strategies, refining their own, and bluffing like mad. After 120,000 hands, Libratus emerged with an overwhelming victory over all four opponen
