Whenever someone asks for a invoked magic formula, I fall on the short end of the stick. Not in this case, though, because the term has a specific mathematical definition. Yes, the magic formula is to emulate the winning hand of our heroes in The DaVinci Code movie. As you may know, the movie (1998) has an amazingly accurate prediction of the future based on some deciphering of past events.
In this case, the magic formula relies on the fact that when you are dealt a hand, your opponents are particularly disinterested in what you may have, and will mostly likely either fold, or call a bet your opponents place on the table. In this sense, hands which are less interesting to your opponents serve as better hands, and are more likely toure your opponents into the hand. Your opponents, who are in some sense “drawn to their greatest strength”, are particularly disinterested in hands which may remind them of their greatest weakness. And the disinterest of your opponents in particular hands, serves as a kind of warning to you: if this particular hand where you must act is particularly unpalatable to you, you are better off to fold. In case you recall my earlier explanation of conflicts and opposition, if your opponents fold a hand which particularly dazzles them, you areined to increase your stack significantly. This may serve as a kind of warning to you that you are potentially behind in the hand, since those who have previously folded will be more unwilling to put you in the hand again.
And this theory is enhanced by the fact that the more complicated the situation is, the more likely your opponents are to interfere. Since they have the knowledge that you are staking a large sum, they will try to prevent you from winning. This may effectively make them “push”. If they know that you arefried in the hand, they may attempt to draw out on you, in fear ofmaking a mistake that would make their own hand profitable.
All of this is to say that the more complicated the situation is, the more likely you are to get into a hand that you are not expected to win.eller. If you are not the best hand when you get dealt a hand, you are going to lose money to the one in which you are best, no matter what your skill level is in this particular hand. This is going to cost you money. This is a bad lose for you if you are in need of the money. But if you are playing poker, this is actually a win for you because you aremore likely to win that hand than lose a hand in which you were the favorite.
The reverse is also possibly true. If you are the one in need of the money, your opponents are in need of the money. And, if you are playing online poker, the hands could be almost like that, since you are playing poker against other players. Not that you are not susceptible to the the nuts if you are in need of the money, since you will always be in need of the best hand to win; the hands are rarely about your cards alone.
The hands in which you are the sure winner are those which involve tricking your opponents. When you play online poker, you can often come across those games where the poker rules seemed to favor the Russell Edwards Effect. In other words, when certain cards are shown, the opposing players tend to fold more than they should. Sometimes, the moment you place your bet, an opposing player will immediately fold. This causes you to think he has a better hand than you, hence usethat sometimes on the turn you might have given him a better hand, but he decided to immediately call. This game is often referred to as the GoInside Game, in which it is more apparent that the opponent is not really sure what you have, hence reverse the predicted direction of the game.
Reverse Implied Odds
An additional interesting thing about behind the scenes poker is the implied odds calculation. The poker website you’re playing through will often calculate your pot odds, which is good information when you’re in the middle of a hand – good or bad cards are required to win, therefore the implied odds are huge. Good hands include high pairs, high cards, and some kinds of suited cards. You can learn more about implied odds by reading a number of Starting Hand guides, which can be found at the link below.
