Ronnie Bardah is an ambassador of poker. A former pro, a trainer and an entrepreneur, he has come up with a new breed of poker strategy.
It’s hard to imagine how anyone can be fascinated by Poker. But when you realize that one of the stars of the hugely popular show, ‘The Biggest Loser’ also holds a PhD in Social Psychology from Harvard, you start to understand how hard he worked for it.
Ronnie tells us that the secret to winning at Poker is to understand who your opponent is. He starts with a list of characteristics that all players have, then works backwards from there to predict their behavior and adjust his strategy accordingly.
The real power behind his success is that he is a strategic thinker. His Poker strategy isn’t about brute force, but about understanding his opponents and adapting to their weaknesses.
In his experience, Ronnie finds that it’s not only the people you are playing against, but the game as a whole, that is made up of a player’s perspective. He’s seen it take place among friends, family and coworkers.
This is the reason why he’s developed a poker strategy based on observing the world around him and the way people act and react. If you’re familiar with The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, that’s basically how his poker strategy operates.
First, the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse are described as being “unwilling to adapt”. By being unwilling to adapt, they are attracted to players who are willing to adapt. They’ll play the player with the most change, a person who is always pushing the envelope, and who is a natural leader.
Second, the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse are known to “cross paths”. When they cross paths, they tend to kill each other. A known killer is John Ruskin, as the known killers include Henry David Thoreau, Thoreau’s college roommate, Albert Einstein, and Woody Guthrie.
Third, a third Horseman of the Apocalypse, known as “the buckyballer”, or “the gentleman”, is always seeking to make things easier for the other players. They will only do this by making their own cards better, which means they’ll play fewer cards against themselves.
The fourth Horseman, also known as “the whiner”, is always complaining. They are more than happy to complain about anything, and will easily pick on other players for minor infractions. They are also known to break other players rules, and make other players upset.
These are some of the Horsemen of the Apocalypse of Ronnie Bardah’s poker strategies. By simply observing the behavior of others, you can learn a lot about them.
He began studying psychology in college, after being a standout athlete at Harvard. After receiving his PhD, he’s developed a new approach to psychology, which he’s called the “Achilles Heel” model. This is the theory behind his Poker strategy.
