Your Questions About Poker Rules

Paul asks…

Can a psycologist play in poker torunaments live ones?

Is there a rule in the US banning psycologist from playing in WSOP or someone who has studyed some psycology a couple of years?Do they check for such things

admin answers:

Absolutely they can. While a general psychologist might have a slightly better than average chance of beating an average person, a psychologist who hasn’t studied poker, poker math, and poker psychology in depth will get destroyed in a typical game or tournament.

If I had my choice of playing against a psychologist or someone with a degree in math who had each studied poker equally long, I’d play the psychologist every day and run like hell from the mathematician. Given the same innate poker skill I’d also much rather play against a psychologist than someone who had read Caro’s Book of Tells.

At the end of the day, psychology doesn’t make a large difference in poker. It’s just one of the many things that will turn a good poker player into a great poker player.

Nancy asks…

Poker question for seasoned players?

When it comes to live poker, it often ends in a showdown between 2 players. If on the river a player bets and then a player calls the bettor is obligated to show his cards first. The calling player will often opt NOT to show his cards if he lost. However, any player at the table can request for his cards to be turned over. Is that considered bad etiquette? I’ve noticed the callers often get upset when forced to show their cards, despite the fact that its perfectly within the rules. What do you think?

admin answers:

I’m not 100% sure, but I think it’s whoever is first to act that has to show the cards. It isn’t really bad etiquette to be asking to see the cards because a lot of people do it.

Mary asks…

In poker how do you calculate how many outs you have?

I’m a beginner and I want to apply the rule of 4 & 2 to my game….but how to you how many outs you have after the flop and turn?

admin answers:

It’s not something you calculate, you just count how many cards would improve your hand, and decide how many of them would actually help you.

For instance, say you have 58 and the flop is 2 8 Q. Someone bets and you think he has a Q. If you think catching two-pair or trips would put you ahead, then you have five outs — there are three more 5’s in the deck and two more 8’s.

Different situation: you have 56 of spades, the flop is 47K with two hearts. Someone bets and a lots of people call. Now it’s your turn and you have an open-ended straight draw. There are 8 cards that would give you the straight. However, notice: 2 of those cards are hearts. If you suspect someone has a flush draw (which you probably should), then instead of counting yourself as having 8 outs, you should assume you only have 6 outs: 3 non-heart Eights and 3 non-heart Threes.

So a lot of times it depends on what you think your opponents have. That part improves with experience, but besides that it’s just counting. You could also think in terms of „partial“ outs, which you can read about in a book or type it in yahoo/google.
