|The Advanced Card, a plastic business card with a chart which guides
pre & post flop strategy, demonstrates how a player can coerce an opponent into
making mathematical mistakes (bad investments) while avoiding such mistakes
himself, in most typical post-flop situations.|
The card takes the emotion out of the game, discouraging the
player from making ill-advised decisions. Unlike existing poker books, the
card contains a clear set of rules which can be consulted during play.
Simply put, the card helps you stay off tilt.
The card is unique because of its reliance on Effective Odds, a rarely discussed concept seldom used in developing poker strategy. The card makes it easy to design a betting strategy in terms of both your and your opponent's effective odds. This approach immediately enables you to put your opponents into negative EV (Expected Value) situations, while helping you avoid such situations yourself. Additionally, the card provides you with a betting strategy for deriving information about your opponent's hand, and helps you evaluate this information based on your opponent's actions. The card also takes your game past the concepts of pot and implied odds by allowing you to plan a betting strategy over the course of the entire hand, not simply on a given round.
Learn to Semi-bluff with confidence. The card encourages you to be the aggressor when bluffing, and to force your opponents in to making tough decisions. In this method, you play with deceptive aggression, while setting boundaries preventing you from going overboard. After the flop, the card guides an appropriate amount to commit to the pot with different types of draws, keeping you aggressive while preventing you from over betting. Conversely, the card provides a betting strategy when playing legitimate hands that forces your opponents to fold their draws, or be sucked into negative EV situations.
If this all sounds overwhelming, fear not! The card is accompanied by an instruction booklet, explaining these concepts in clear terms, while providing concrete examples of how to apply them in actual games. Once you've read it, you should be able to refer to the card and make on-the-spot decisions during play.
Card can be purchased for $67.
