To be honest, I’m not much of a poker player myself, but Freddy Deeb does his poker homework and he turns up a lot. Freddy tells us in his new Poker Strategy ebook, “How to Play Poker Like a Pro,” that he doesn’t feel any sense of urgency when he makes his picks. Instead, he waits until he gets to the table and can relax.
He plays according to his gut instinct, which happens to be correct more often than not. That’s one of the reasons he wins so many hands. He’s a teacher of sorts and people listen to him.
Another reason is that poker is a teaching game. You need to understand the game before you start playing. Freddy knows the game well enough to help people who want to learn.
As a result, you can bet low on cards against Freddy and it will still be profitable. The reason is simple: he knows the correct way to play.
In this book, Freddy explains the truth about poker and why you should be playing with your eyes open. He gives you the right numbers of betting chips to play with and doesn’t promote the wrong bets. Instead, he does what most players wouldn’t dare do, which is to explain why certain bets are a good idea.
It’s his desire to teach that drives him to put his articles out there for all to see. He wants to make it clear that you don’t need to play like a pro before you play like a pro, and in this way he gives you an edge.
He’s not too concerned with your bankroll because he knows it is a reflection of your ability. Instead, he wants to teach you how to profit from the elements you have. He has information on how to evaluate cards and how to bet.
Freddy is one of the few professional poker players who admits he was wrong in his decision making. He doesn’t lose because he plays poor. He wins because he can win.
If you want to be a winner, don’t play when the other guy is already running late. He will know you are already at the table by the time he gets there. His eyes will be on you so he can read the hand you’re holding.
You need to know your chip count before you start to play. Freddy is a good example of someone who knows that the right time to raise or fold is not the first hand. He knows that it’s better to leave his opponent with something, like a flop or river card, that can be used to his advantage.
Just like all of us, Freddy knows the point of the blinds when he sees them. He knows the best times to bet and to fold.
Freddy’s name isn’t going to be remembered by the millions of people who have been introduced to the game of poker through his articles and videos. His name will be remembered by those who follow him because of his integrity and quality information. He uses his wit and intelligence to help others.
