Welcome to the exciting world of poker, novice player! You’ve taken the first step in the right direction by seeking ways to improve your skills and win more games. The good news is, even the best players started from scratch, with a win rate of zero. The secret to success in poker is simple – study with a solver.
The Power of Solvers
A solver is a powerful tool that can help you analyze your game and make better decisions. Don’t waste your time creating simulations on your own as a novice player, you’re bound to make mistakes. Instead, leverage the simulations of more advanced players found in Zenith Poker’s extensive library. GTOplus is beginner-friendly, easy to use, and affordable, making it the perfect solver for novice players. Additionally, you can watch free video tutorials on how to use GTOplus on Zenith Poker’s website.
Incorporate Solver Study into Your Routine
Consistency is key when it comes to improving your game. Make sure to include solver study in your training routine. I recommend studying for one hour for every 3-5 hours of playing time. Don’t forget, play is also critical in this stage, as you need to make mistakes during play to improve.
Analyze Your Own Hands
Analyze your hands to see where you can improve. Compare your hands to similar spots in the solver. Consider questions such as: How did the solver play that particular combination? Did the solver choose a different bet size? What is the EV of this combo in this line? How much equity does it have against the opponent’s range? Where does this hand rank in my own range? These are all important questions to consider as you improve your game.
Create a Study Routine
Creating a basic study routine should be one of your early goals as a novice player. Even if you only play one session per week, make sure to include an hour of study in your schedule. This will prime your mind to play and identify your weaknesses.
Connect with Other Players
Don’t be afraid to reach out and connect with other players. Join free or paid poker study groups online, such as the Zenith Poker Community Discord group. Pinging ideas off other players and comparing notes on hand histories is a great way to improve quickly.
