All Strategy – Pokerroad Review

Sometimes I get sick of writing about pokerroad. But the fact is, they produce some of the best content in the poker-sphere. If you don’t know by now, check em out.

Their newest show is ‘All Strategy’ with Daniel Negreanu, Justin Bonomo, and Scott Huff.

Start at the bottom – Scott Huf – he’s entertaining and keeps things moving along.

Bonomo – he is MUCH better than the ‘calling station’ show he produced on Cardplayer. That show made my ears hurt, and there was a video feed to make it more awkward and boring. I think he’s better on PR because he doesn’t have to carry the entertainment value, he can just get geeky on em. His personality is kind of bland, but he seems to get a little more lively with some other personalities to key in on.

Negreanu – obviously one of the best minds in poker, and also one of the few who can truly verbalize his thoughts.

The show – overall very informative. If you like poker strategy talk then the ‘All Strategy’ show is going to be entertaining for you.

This Episode – a great dialogue on short stacking tournament play. Bonomo said “…often players use being on the short stack as an excuse to play poorly.” They proceed to discuss the benefits of logically thinking about your stack size, along with the other players at your table stack sizes. Even when you are desperate, there can be good and bad opportunities to try and double up or pick up the blinds/antes. I also liked the ‘coin-flipping’ discussion – if you are better than the average player at the table, then you can think twice about getting in those ‘average’ spots, and look for better spots to accumulate chips (with made hands, safe boards, etc.)
