Inside PokerSnowie's brain reveals the work of Johannes Levermann, the head of research of Snowie Games. As the PokerSnowie "master trainer", Johannes explores first hand how the brain of PokerSnowie evolves and learns advanced strategic concepts, on its own.

PokerSnowie's ultimate aim is to produce the perfectly balanced game, find the ultimate un-exploitable equilibrium for all No Limit Hold'em configurations. Join us on this fascinating journey, which is just starting, into the future of poker.

The PokerSnowie Video Quiz series aims to answer the question: "what is the right play?" It is a set of poker coaching videos presented by French professional poker player Sharp. In each video, Sharp sets up an interesting hand in the "Scenarios" tool of PokerSnowie and explains how to analyse the situation and learn from PokerSnowie's advice, based on the Game Theory Optimal model.

Understanding PokerSnowie's bet size and frequency

PokerSnowie has learnt GTO using three different bet sizes: half pot, pot and twice the pot. It is not necessarily enough to cover all the spectrum of No Limit situations, but we can already learn a lot by studying in which situation PokerSnowie suggests to bet small (1/2 pot), bet big (pot) and over bet (2 pot)
 
Let’s contemplate some scenarios.
 

Postflop strategy - developing the correct bluff to value ratio

Inside PokerSnowie's brain

This article explores how to construct a betting range that is well balanced between value hands and bluffs, and shows how PokerSnowie compares to the theory.

The optimal bluffing frequency is easy to calculate on one street. Suppose two opponents are on the river, hero can have the nuts or be bluffing, and villain has a bluff catcher.

Sharp explores the importance of GTO play preflop in today's PokerSnowie Video Quiz.

The quiz question is as follows:

Why is it correct to open from the cut-off with 98 suited and not to do so with 98 off?

Is it:

  • because It is suited?
  • for its ability to flop big hands?
  • for its playability?
  • for its range?
