Welcome to Newcomers & Unwelcome to Variance and Its Buddies!
By DrEllenCait

I often hear, ‘Well it’s Variance’, a term that should be explaining an inevitable part of poker. But then I wonder, ‘Is it just bad play or really variance’? Only by understanding what variance really is, can one make such a distinction and only by playing a very large number of hands do we have enough hands to compare our typical results versus results impacted by variance. So newcomers and aspiring players,, you are highly unlikely to have experienced the difference between bad plays and variance given it takes time (and a bankrol)l to play, say, 400,000 hands; Nonetheless, it is always wise to know what’s to come.

As CardplayerPT (Andre) warns: “It is Important to distinguish between regular variance and leaks in our game because bad results can indeed be the result of poor play, mistakes and variance can be an excuse. So you should avoid falling into that mind trap!

The link is broken. In fact, it looks like the blog doesn't exist at all. I'm sure it was there yesterday. Did you accidentally delete it?

Your other blogs are still there at http://www.pokerschoolonline.com/blogs/DrEllenCait

Thanks,
