### Tolerance: Episode One by threads13

Threads13 gets into the winrate and math behind it and demonstrates how variance can affect it.

Variance is huge in poker and it can drastically slow down the learning process. This series is split into two parts: 1) Identify variance and explaining the fundamental mathematics of variance. 2) Shifting the focus to learning (instead of results) and maximizing our learning.

Cool first episode.
I am nowhere close to a math expert but been interested in statistics since I started poker lol.

Are you using the central limit theorem to approximate the distribution to a normal-distribution? Does the theorem apply because we have a sample greater than 50 or sth?

Looking forward to calculating our theoretical winrate using a F-distribution or whatever it is in future episodes.

When we do an estimate of our winrate, is it okay to put in rakeback/bonusses?

For example a player has a winrate of 5bb/100. He earns 2bb/100 from rakeback and/or bonusses. Can we say his winrate is 7bb/100 and use this number in our calculations?

No, because rakeback isn't influenced by variance, it's a steady income.

Just make the calculation with your 5bb winrate and add the 2bb/100 of rakeback at the end result.

Wowow - I canÂ´t tell you how thankful I am for this video. It clears things up in an unbelievably manner, things I were "superficially" aware of have gotten crystal clear now. THANKS!

Aside from that - real professional video, the screen play is just awesome, never saw that before. Hats off! I can imagine that it took a lot of work (no matter how helpful the tool was you used for it).

Great video. I think since the majority of us use Holdem Manager, an option to hide the results throughout HEM can make us far less distracted by variance. You would of course be able to turn this option back on if you wanted. Or with the ability to disable it for a set period of time.

Anyways, the Holdem Manager guys are open to suggestions if there is enough interest.

Very nice work sir. The only thing I found a bit strange was the guy referred to as "The Dude," was in a pic with viscous, white, gunk dripping from his mouth. Everything else was awesome.
