### 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.

Hi!
I am concerned that this will be a great series, but I wanna be sure that it is valuebale enough for me to watch it (you know, the day has only 24hours and hence time is always scarce -> you need to select more...)
So:

1.) I know how the variance works from the mathematic perspective - my knowledge comes here from the known book "mathematics of poker"
So will I find here anyways something new for me (in this part1)?
2.) Will you tell in further vids also something about the psychological side of "acceptance of variance"?
3.) why is this a series regards to the section "No Limit" instead of "others".
4.) Interesting that you are doing such a series and not one of the "mental" or "Mindset" Coaches - any special reasons for it?

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.

You donÂ´t know the movie?

Watch it. Soon. No, better even sooner ...

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?

Yes. Not sure what "sth" stands for, but we will mostly be dealing with large sample sizes so yes, the theorem applies.

It's a character from this movie.

Yes. I've read it and I from what I remember they do very few (if any) examples to show the extreme variance present in poker. I don't think there is very much overlap at all.

2.) Will you tell in further vids also something about the psychological side of "acceptance of variance"?

Yes, that's the plan for episodes 3 and 4.

3.) why is this a series regards to the section "No Limit" instead of "others".

I use exclusively NLHE examples because that's my game. Of course, variance applies to all games so it could easily be categorized as "other". I'll speak with the guys about it.

4.) Interesting that you are doing such a series and not one of the "mental" or "Mindset" Coaches - any special reasons for it?

Not particularly. It hasn't been something I've put much thought into, tbh. I've never done any mindset exclusive coaching, but I definitely discuss it with my students during out strategy coaching.

I think his point applies even though I love the character & the movie not the most pleasant image of him. Minor point though, very helpful video as I try to tough through a brutal stretch in my return after a year away.

Wow! Can't wait for next episodes! Is 'a must watch' definitely!
Thank you very much!

Also I really liked the whole presentation (its structure and style!). What software did you use? As a guy spending a lot of time drawing different slides for numerous presentations I just wonder if I can use it in my work ... =)

Prezi.com There's a small learning curve, but as you can see, it's pretty slick once you figure it out.
