The 10 second rule for decision making in online poker. Hadn’t heard of this yet, but this video does a great job of advocating using 10 seconds to think through a hand before making a decision. The best question he wants you to ask yourself is if you make the same decision in this hand as you would other hands, will you be profitable? Take a look at the quick video. He first shows himself in play using his time and then goes through some of the thought process.

Everything he says seems simple enough, but you’ve got to appreciate the way this guy logically and rationally thinks through his decisions to fold, bet, raise, or check. If you adopt his more analytical approach to the game as a constant in your own, you’re probably going to be better off.

I admit that sometimes I do act too combatively or with emotion. I usually take time and reason out why I should or shouldn’t make a move but on the same token, I’ve also made a lot of decisions that I know, in the long haul, would cause me to lose money. Solid video.

    wow this guy makes money playing poker? 3xing into 2 guys with less than ~8bbs at a final table? wow thats incredible, i never run into players this bad, thats prolly cuz its like a 5 dollar buy in and i play 10-20nl cash but whatever.

    its terribly bad to limp that Q9, he lucked out the guy was a fucking idiot.

    He has to use all this software and he still is playing like 5 dollar buy in 45 person sit n gos. thats hilarious
