In this week’s edition of Poker Twitter News we have a bunch of poker advice for you, shared by some of the biggest and brightest minds of poker.
BenCB on how much you should study
So… Two hours tops?
To succeed in something, i.e., becoming a poker pro, you really need to want it. This is your dream; you do everything possible to make it come true. Right?— bencb (@bencb789) November 7, 2022
Then you automatically dedicate as much time as possible to learning Poker and building your dream business.
If you want to succeed, you dedicate all the time you can. For some, it's 10 hours a day; for some it's 2 hours. It doesn't matter. What matters is your determination, commitment, and persistence. Some can dedicate more time, and some can do less.— bencb (@bencb789) November 7, 2022
And if you can dedicate only 1 hour per week because you have other obligations, that's fine. It will take you longer, and you can work towards being able to dedicate more time. But at least you understand that you dedicate all your time to your goal.— bencb (@bencb789) November 7, 2022

How poker gets more difficult
Interesting graph of difficulty of poker as stakes rises.
How poker gets more difficult as the stakes increase:— Patrick Howard (@mobiuspoker) November 10, 2022
Technical game gets more difficult *linearly*, and can actually become easier at ultra-high stakes (because whales)
Mental game gets more difficult *exponentially*
Mindset trumps everything once stakes get high enough pic.twitter.com/6xYFEbyvXL
ICM in early stages
Well, if owner of DTO Poker says so, it must be true.
The risk premium these sims assume is very far from reality. ICM has obvious limitations and blindly following it will have you losing tons of bb/100.— Dominik Nitsche (@DominikNitsche) November 11, 2022
