The Best Poker Strategy Advice From The Art of War

This article was written by blackrain79.com contributor Fran Ferlan.

“Poker is war. People pretend it is a game.” – Doyle Brunson

With more than half a century of poker experience, Texas Dolly sure knows what
he is talking about. Poker is war, albeit of a more civilized sort.

And war, war never changes. So why not learn the lessons from the most famous
war manual that has stood the test of time and apply them on the felt?

The Art of War
is an ancient Chinese military tractate written close to two and a half
millennia ago, and is traditionally credited to a military strategist known as
Sun Tzu. 

It has been studied to this day not just by the military, but by many
businessmen, athletes, politicians and so on.

 

Its timeless lessons are useful and applicable wherever there is conflict. And
if you’re dealing with people in any endeavour, there will always be conflict.

So let’s look at those lessons and see if we can take them to the felt to
crush any and all opposition, be it external or internal.

1. Know Your Edge

“If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a
hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory
gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor
yourself, you will succumb in every battle.” – Sun Tzu

What makes poker profitable? The fact that everyone thinks they know how to
play. And it’s true. Poker is an incredibly simple game to learn, but
incredibly difficult to master. 

Most people never go past the surface level understanding of the game. In
fact, most people don’t really understand it’s a skill game in the first
place. It’s a card game after all, so how could it possibly be about anything
other than luck?

So those that know that it’s all about skill in the long run are the only ones
that are actually able to make money. That’s why there are professional poker
players, yet there are no professional blackjack or bingo players. 

Poker is all about awareness. To quote the great
Daniel Negreanu, you have to understand that everything you do at the poker table conveys
information. 

If you are aware of your own strengths and weaknesses, you have a huge leg up
on the competition, but that’s only one piece of the puzzle. Knowing the rules
and the winning strategy in theory will only get you so far.

This is something that Nathan “BlackRain79″ Williams actually specifically discusses in his latest video:

The key point here though is, if you’ve mastered the fundamentals, the next
step is understanding the opponents you’re up against. 

Are they a fish or a regular? Are they too loose/tight, too
passive/aggressive? What are their weaknesses, and how can I exploit
them? 

What is the best strategy to use against them individually, as well as against
the table as a whole? How do they perceive me, and how can I use it to my
advantage? 

One wonderful thing about poker is that the more you immerse yourself in it,
the more you recognize how deeply complex the game is. 

The more you learn, the more you realize how much you actually don’t know.
This is the paradox of knowledge. 

Think about the time you only started playing poker. How did you make your
decisions? How many factors did you take into consideration? I’m guessing very
few.

Then you started learning about playing in position, pot odds and implied
odds, outs and equity, board textures, stack-to-pot ratio, bet sizing, hand
ranges and so on and so forth. And these are just the basics. 

Today you’re taking all of this information in account and then some, often
not even realizing it consciously. 

Now consider your average fish. How many variables do they take into account
when making their decisions? Hopefully, far less than you. And this is where
your edge lies.

Your winnings are the sum total of all your edges played out over a huge
sample size. 

So if you know yourself and you know your opponents, and can recognize your
skill edge over them, you need not fear the result of a hundred
coinflips. 

2. Adapt to Your Surroundings to Stay Ahead

“Water shapes its course according to the nature of the ground over which
it flows; the soldier works out his victory in relation to the foe whom he
is facing.” – Sun Tzu

What is the best poker winning strategy? Tight and aggressive? Loose and
aggressive? Something else entirely?

It’s none of those things, and all of those things at the same time. 

There are simply way too many variables to consider at any given hand, so
there is no one-size-fits all strategy for every situation.

The best strategy is therefore one of adaptability. You will never play the
same poker hand twice. What works on one table, won’t work on another.

So in order to stay ahead, you need to constantly adapt to your surroundings.
And if you adapt successfully, your more cognizant opponents might adapt to
your adaptation and so on. 

There’s no such thing as standing still. 

That’s what makes poker such an incredibly dynamic game, so it’s your job to
always stay one step ahead of the competition. 

The biggest winners in the game aren’t those who play perfectly balanced
ranges at all times and are utterly unexploitable, but the ones that are
perfectly adaptable in relation to their opponents. 

They recognize their individual strengths and weaknesses, and use them to
maximize their profit. 

Now, that’s not to say that there will be situations where the best tactic
will in fact be to have perfectly balanced ranges at all times, but that’s
also being adaptable in relation to your opponents. 

You have to remember, however, that you are in fact playing against living,
breathing humans. Nobody plays perfectly 100% of the time, and everybody has
leaks in their game. 

Some less than others, but they still have them. You just have to dig a bit
deeper to find them. 

Improvise, adapt, overcome.

3. Make No Mistakes And You Will Win

“He wins the battle by making no mistakes. Making no mistakes is what
establishes the certainty of victory, for it means conquering an enemy that
is already defeated.” – Sun Tzu 

Here is a thought to have at the forefront of your mind every time you sit
down at the table: Most of the money you win won’t be the direct result of
your superior skills, but of the inadequacies of your opponents. 

When playing poker, your goal should not be to outplay your opponents. That’s
fighting a losing battle. You should let them try to outplay you.

The secret to winning in poker is actually very simple: don’t make any
mistakes. It’s easier said than done, of course, but there really is nothing
more to it. 

But how can you get to the point of not making any mistakes? Well, that’s
simple, too. By making a lot of mistakes. 

I think the great Danish physicist Niels Bohr put it best: “An expert is a person who has made all the
mistakes that can be made in a very narrow field.”

The trick is to actually learn from your mistakes. Let’s face it, we all make
all kinds of asinine plays from time to time. Some more than others. 

And we’re often flabbergasted with our own idiocy. 

How many times have you said to yourself something along the lines of: How the
hell could I have been so stupid? Or: I knew he had it, why the f!@# did I
call him down? 

It’s normal to be critical of yourself in those kinds of situations. 

You have a feeling that you should have known better by now. But it’s all a
part of the learning process. If you know you made a mistake, that’s a lot
better than not knowing you’ve made one.

It takes a great deal of repetition and deliberate practice to get to the
point of just knowing what to do effortlessly. It takes a lot longer than many
people realize. 

Knowledge is difficult. And the learning curve is not a straight line. It’s
more of a zig-zaggy, one step forward, two steps back kind of line. 

So if you make a mistake, it simply means that your skill is not so far ahead
on the learning curve you assumed, and you haven’t really mastered it yet, but
that’s ok. You are getting closer one mistake at a time. 

As long as you learn from the experience, it’s not really a mistake, but a
learning opportunity. 

If you never ever make any mistakes, it doesn’t necessarily mean you’ve
mastered something. It’s more likely that you’re just not improving and
challenging yourself. And that’s a mistake in and of itself. 

4. Pick Your Battles

“The wise warrior avoids the battle.” – Sun Tzu

This one may seem counterintuitive at a first glance, but if you think about
it, it makes a lot of sense. Winning poker is not only about winning huge
pots, but also about losing as little as necessary.

The sum total of the two determine your long term profitability, and both are
equally important.

Beginner poker players often don’t realize this, and that’s why they play way
more hands than they should. After all, how could you hope to win if you don’t
play? 

They think that folding is weak, so they play too many hands, and stay in the
hand longer than they should. Just play all the hands, you can’t miss them
all, right? 

Of course, as any decent player knows, playing too many hands in poker is just
about one of the worst things you can do. 

In fact, as
Pareto principle
would suggest, about 80% of all your winnings will come from only the top 20%
of hands. 

Winning poker is about picking your spots, not just hoping to smash the flop,
because mathematically speaking, you’ll miss far more often than not. And you
can’t outrun math.

When the odds are against you, you should do everything you can to hedge your
bets, instead of throwing your money in with a mathematical disadvantage. If
you do that, you might as well go play the lottery. 

You should also consider the opponents you’re up against, as mentioned
previously. If you’re up against decent, thinking players, sometimes the best
play is not to play at all. 

If you don’t expect them to make a lot of mistakes, and you don’t make any
mistakes, you’re basically just trading the money back and forth, while the
house takes their cut. 

You should always get involved with some kind of edge, be it better cards,
position, or superior skill (hopefully all three). If none of the factors are
working in your favour, wait for a better spot.

So next time you are dealt a marginal hand out of position in a multiway pot,
for example, stop and consider is it profitable to get involved, and do the
potential benefits outweigh the risks. 

Are you putting yourself in a profitable situation, or will you just throw
money away most of the time? 

Pick your spots, pick your battles, and the rest will take care of itself.

5. Don’t Be Afraid to Mix it Up

“In battle, there are not more than two methods of attack – the direct and
the indirect; yet these two in combination give rise to an endless series of
maneuvers.” – Sun Tzu

There are two lines you can take in every spot you play, aggressive lines like
betting, raising, and reraising, and passive lines like checking, calling and
folding. 

But the number of combinations you can take throughout the hand are
immeasurable. You should be aware of them at all times, and try to take the
most profitable line in every spot. 

This can only be done if you look at the bigger picture. You shouldn’t just
choose what to do on one street, but consider the future streets as well.
Then, and only then can you make the most +EV decisions. 

The players that consider more options give themselves more ways to win. If
you are only calling or folding, you can’t expect to be a winning player.
Think of it this way, would you rather have two bullets in a gunfight, or
six? 

The more lines you can think of and pull off, the harder you’ll be to play
against. If you’re doing the same things over and over, you’re going to become
predictable very soon. 

Even if your strategy is winning you money for some time, your opponents might
adjust and start exploiting you. You have to be willing to mix it up here and
there.

If you are mostly c-betting the flop for value, for example, you might want to
try an occasional check-raise, or a delayed c-bet instead. 

If you fold a lot from the big blind, you can 3-bet light against steal
attempts from time to time. There’s no such thing as a standard play. Playing ABC poker can only get you
so far as BlackRain79 discusses in this video:Keep expanding your knowledge, and don’t be afraid to try something
unconventional every so often. 

Give yourself the permission to try something creative. When you get the
fundamentals down you have to keep pushing the envelope. There is room for
creativity in poker. 

There are possibilities for those who are willing to search for them. You
probably won’t discover some groundbreaking new strategy, but that’s not the
goal. 

The goal is to start seeing the opportunities you might have missed before. If
nothing else, you’ll make yourself a more difficult adversary, and that’s not
to be underestimated. 

6. Be the One to Dictate the Tempo

“The clever combatant imposes his will on the enemy, but does not allow the
enemy’s will to be imposed on him.” – Sun Tzu

This one is all about thinking proactively instead of reactively. 

When you play reactively, you’re not really in control of the outcome. And
since we can’t always control the outcome when playing poker, it doesn’t
really make sense to relinquish the control we do have.

Players who play passively are at the mercy of the pace their opponents
dictate. If you just check or call most of the time, you let your opponents
dictate the price of the hand. 

They basically say: if you want to get involved, this is how much it will cost
you. You become their customer, instead of the other way around.

Now, that’s not to say that you should be betting and raising every chance you
get and try to bulldoze your way to victory. While it may work in the short
term, it’s hardly an optimal strategy. 

It’s antithetical to the previous tips about biding your time and picking your
battles. 

If you respond to aggression to mindless aggression of your own, you are still
reacting to your opponents and let them set the pace.

So how do you play proactively? By not merely playing every spot in a vacuum
and responding to your opponent’s action street by street, but by looking
ahead and considering all the possible outcomes.

For example, you call a flop c-bet just because and then fold to a double
barrel on the turn. 

The proactive approach would be to first consider all the previous action and
available info, try to estimate their range, ask what would happen if I call
or raise, what kind of action do I expect on future streets, which turn cards
would help me and which would favour their range and so on. 

7. Preparation is Half the Battle

“Victorious warriors win first and then go to war, while defeated warriors
go to war first and then seek to win.” – Sun Tzu

Consistently winning poker players set themselves up to succeed even before
they even sit down to play. This is going to be a little long-winded, but bear
with me on this one. 

Consider an elite athlete for a second. What do they do prior to the big
game? 

Are they partying non-stop, living it up, and then just show up and sweep the
competition thanks to their godlike abilities and innate talent? 

Or are they working their ass off in the gym, practicing rigorously, watching
what they eat, and getting sufficient amounts of sleep every single day? 

On top of that, they are intensely focused on their craft, watch game tapes,
devise strategies with their coaches and teammates, maybe even meditate and
overall look for every tiny edge they can in order to get a leg up on their
competition. 

When you are competing at a world class level, every little thing counts and
adds up. 

Those that are willing to go the extra mile are the ones that eventually rise
to the top, propped up by the right amount of fortune at the right time. 

Poker is no different in that regard, except the fortune factor is far more
pronounced in the short term. But over a long enough timeframe, all those
little edges will add up, and the best will rise to the top. 

But being the best isn’t all about being exceptionally talented or
exceptionally fortunate. It certainly doesn’t hurt, but it’s not the whole
recipe.

There’s always going to be someone more talented, and fortunes won’t always
favour you. When those things inevitably happen and you hit a brick wall, grit
is what will keep you moving forward. 

And when it comes to actual game time, make sure you are the best poker player
at the table before even sitting down to play. 

Know that you’ve worked harder on your game off the felt than anyone else, and
there is nothing you are not prepared for, including a gruelling string of
never ending bad beats and suck-outs. 

Practice proper game selection and seat selection, make sure you are properly
bankrolled for the stakes you play (the bigger bankroll, the better), and
study off the felt to fix your leaks.

It also goes without saying that you shouldn’t play drunk, high, tired, tilted
or otherwise emotionally compromised in any way, shape or form.
In short, approach the game like a poker pro does, and you will get world class results.

8. No Guts, No Glory

“If you fight with all your might,  there is a chance of life; whereas
death is certain if you cling to your corner.” – Sun Tzu

One final tip for all you tournament players out there. Sometimes you just
have to roll the dice. 

Tournament poker is about survival. And the only way to survive is to
constantly fight to stay ahead of shallower and shallower stacks. So you can’t
just wait out your way to the final table.

In fact, this is exactly the key to winning poker tournaments: to play
aggressively around the bubble. This is where most of the players will clam
up, and here you should attack relentlessly. 

You should try to steal the blinds frequently, and recognize the players who
don’t defend and are too tight. If you are shortstacked, you should play
fold-shove strategy. 

If you’re deep-stacked, you should exert maximum pressure to medium-to short
stacked weak opponents. 

The goal is to set yourself as the chip leader going into the final table,
instead of barely making it with a few blinds behind. The top three finishes
have disproportionately big rewards, as opposed to eighth or ninth place, for
example. BlackRain79 discusses this final table ICM strategy in much more detail in this article.

So if you actually want to win a tournament instead of just making it to the
money, you’ll have to be willing to risk your tournament life at any
time. 

Sure, there will be times when laying low and biding your time is the correct
approach, but it can’t be the only approach. 

Remember you’re playing no-limit poker, so your whole stack is on the line all
the time, and with it your tournament life. Guard it carefully, but also be
willing to lose it any second. And you might just win it all.

Summary

Poker is war, except the battles are fought with chips instead of tanks and
cannon fodder. 

It’s a civilized form of warfare, and it’s absolutely beautiful. If played
responsibly, only your feelings and your wallet can get hurt, so it’s hardly
the end of the world. 

But in order not to get our feelings or our wallets hurt, we need to win, and
in order to win, we might want to heed the lessons of poker pros who played quite
higher stakes than most of us will (hopefully) ever need to.

It all starts with our awareness. Poker is profitable to the select group of
people who not only know the game inside out, but know how their opponents
think, feel and act. 

Your average fish on the other hand, doesn’t even know how little they
actually know. 

So if you’re aware of your own skill edge, as well as the inadequacies of your
opponents, there is nothing to fear, not even the never ending swings of
fortunes.

When you can read your opponents, you can adapt to their play style
effortlessly and always stay up one step ahead of them. 

There is no such thing as standing still. You have to keep moving and keep
adapting, otherwise you will get left behind.

You should also keep trying to improve and work on fixing your leaks off the
felt. 

The elite world class professionals didn’t get to the top by having a sixth
sense or some godlike innate talent, but by studying the game reverently and
practicing deliberately for an insane number of hours over many years. 

And they made way more mistakes on the way than most of us ever will. That’s
what made them experts.

Speaking of mistakes, one of the best ways to avoid them is to not put
yourself in the position to make them in the first place. 

This means being selective about spots we decide to get involved in. A lot of
beginner poker players simply play too many hands, stay in them too long, and
donate way too much money. 

Sometimes the only winning play is not to play at all. 

However, you also miss 100% of the shots you don’t take. So you will have to
go out of your comfort zone from time to time. 

This means experimenting with different lines, and letting go of the notions
of “standard play”. 

If you make a standard play every time, you will have standard results. And a
standard result for an average poker player is actually losing money. 

If you don’t tilt and make huge costly mistakes, you can expect to be a
breakeven or a slightly winning player.

So don’t be afraid to get creative here and there. You might end up with the

Stephen Curry and Draymond Green made several highlight plays to get the job done for the home side at the Chase Center.The duo didn’t even have to feature in the fourth quarter with six Golden State Warriors scoring in double digits to close out the game with ease. They even restricted the Cleveland Cavaliers well who shot less than 40% from the field.Cleveland Cavaliers get going early but Golden State Warriors eventually take controlIt was a fairly close affair in the first quarter. Stephen Curry stepped up for the Golden State Warriors and scored a quickfire 16 points but the Cleveland Cavaliers responded well. The likes of Collin Sexton and Jarrett Allen kept them in the running.Things changed towards the end of the second quarter where the Golden State Warriors went on a 23-8 lead to finish the first half with a 10-point advantage. The Cleveland Cavaliers couldn’t recover from there as the Dubs extended their advantage in the third quarter thanks to the playmaking of Draymond Green.The Warriors have held their opponent to 105 points or less, and 40.6% FG shooting or less, in 4 of the last 5 games— Grant Liffmann (@GrantLiffmann) February 16, 202128 games into the season, the Warriors are the 8th seed in the West with a 15-13 record.Not too bad for the projected 14th seed ahead of the season. pic.twitter.com/GYc8ifhLdt— r/Warriors (@GSWReddit) February 16, 2021I’d say it’s not the Cavs night.

Thousands of jobs available at tribal casinos


With millions of Americans out of work, the first sign of a recovery has to be in new jobs coming on the market. The tribal gaming industry is doing its part, with several operators posting new jobs in the past few weeks.Seneca Gaming Corporation has lots of jobs available at the Seneca Niagara Resort & Casino in Niagara Falls and Seneca Buffalo Creek Casino in downtown Buffalo. The operator will be hosting a job fair for open positions on February 25 between 10:00am and 6:00pm.“Even with the changes and challenges everyone has gone through over the past year, Seneca Gaming Corporation has remained one of the largest employers in Western New York, and we are excited to be growing our team across a variety of departments,” said Meghan Smith, Seneca Gaming Corporation’s vice president of human resources. “We truly believe that the time we spend at work should be rewarding, fulfilling and fun. That’s how we approach our jobs every day. If people are looking an opportunity in that type of environment, we are ready to talk to them.”Attendees can check out what’s on offer in person or virtually, but should be ready for an interview at a moment’s notice.On the other side of the country, the San Manuel Band of Mission Indians are also on the look out for fresh talent. That operator has more than 500 jobs to fill, with as many as 2000 coming for the rest of the year. They’ll be having their virtual career fair on February 18 from 9:00am to 4:00pm.“The expansion of San Manuel will offer an economic boost to the local job market at a time when it is really needed,” said Brigitte Saria, Chief People and Infrastructure Officer. “Our efforts to boost the local economy are guided by our commitment to ensuring our employment process and work environment follow leading health and safety standards.”The Chukchansi Gold Resort and Casino in Coarsegold, California are also hiring. The tribe is looking for 50 full-time and part-time positions, and will have a job fair on February 23 from 10:00am to 1:00pm.Add those jobs to the 150 that Oneida Nation Enterprises were offering as of last week, and there’s a lot to be hopeful for about the future of the economy, and particularly that of tribal gaming.Connecticut tribes close to new dealGovernor Ned Lamont wants sports betting in his state, and he needs a new deal with the tribes to get it done. He used his budget address to emphasize the push:“My administration has been in active negotiations with our tribal partners to bring the state’s gaming economy into the digital age. And I am submitting legislation which reflects what I believe to be the best bet in ending this stalemate of inaction in a way which is in the best interest [of] the entire state.”Construction resumes at Four WindsThe Pokagon Band of Potawatomi Indians’ contractor recently resumed building a hotel at Four Winds South Bend Casino. Construction slowed down significantly due to Covid-19.The new 23-story hotel was originally due to be completed this year. But with construction crews only working on the foundation now after a 10-month delay, maybe 2022 seems more accurate.

GGPoker Adds More Variety to No-Strings-Attached “Daily Freebie” Promotion

Verified players can continue to play a real-money game, such as Flip & Go and Spin & Gold, for free each and every day.One of the most popular promotions for low stakes players on GGPoker has been further expanded.

During the software update on February 10, the Daily Free Spin promotion changed to Daily Freebie. Furthermore, UK players can now also claim the daily gift for a chance to boost their bankrolls.

All players, both existing and new, just need to have verified accounts and log in each day to claim their gift, which lets plays play real money tournaments—and compete for real money cash prizes.

The update has expanded what is given away. Now, there are Daily Freebie tickets for Flip & Go, the super-successful new format introduced in January 2021. It has also undergone some changes since its launch, with GGPoker increasing the frequency and adjusting the buy-ins as well as the maximum number of stacks for purchase.

“GGPoker is happy to confirm that we’ve relaunched our Daily Free Spin offer as the Daily Freebie; verified players can continue to play a real-money game, such as Flip & Go and Spin & Gold, for free each and every day. All they need to do is log in and claim their daily reward!” said Paul Burke, Head of Public Relations at GGPoker.

“We hope to continue to change up the rewards on offer in the future, giving all players the opportunity to try out GGPoker’s most exciting games, no matter their bankroll.”

For existing players, Daily Freebie is available immediately—just log in and claim.

If you haven’t yet signed up, you can do so today and enjoy the promotion as soon as you have verified your account. You can also take advantage of all of GGPoker’s generous welcome bonuses.

How the GGPoker Daily Freebie Promotion Works

The operator has seen unprecedented growth in 2020 to become one of the leading online poker platforms for tournaments and cash games. GGPoker has achieved that with a plethora of promotions, innovations, and high-profile partnerships. Their continued success has led to a record $7.5 million in promotions given away in February 2021.

One of several promotions for players with smaller bankrolls is the Daily Freebie formerly the Daily Free Spin.

This was launched on September 7, 2020. It has given verified players the opportunity to claim one $0.25 Spin & Gold ticket every day ever since. The free ticket courtesy of GGPoker continues to be available under the new name three times per week—*but this rotates with other ticket types.*

Players can see the next six upcoming Daily Freebies listed under the “My Promo” tab. A new daily gift becomes available after each daily reset at midnight Pacific time. Each ticket will continue to feature an expiration date of 24 hours once the Daily Freebie has been awarded.

The current rotation of Daily Freebie is fixed for the time being. However, GGPoker hopes “to change the daily prizes on a semi-regular basis,” according to Burke. He also hinted at a strong possibility that the Daily Freebie will include the alternative currencies C$ or T$ sometime soon.

Newly included as a prize in the Daily Freebie is a $1 Spin & Gold ticket, which can be claimed once per week. Furthermore, five $0.05 Flip & Go tickets are up for grabs three times per week, giving players the chance at trying the new tournament format free of charge.

As a mixture between a Flipout and regular tournament, Flip & Go was launched on January 12, 2021. However, it only took a few days for the first tweaks to be made. Initially slated to take place once every hour, it was soon increased to once every 30 minutes.

The buy-ins were also adjusted and the lowest available stake was increased to $0.05 with a guarantee of $50. Players can now take a shot at their own leisure three times per week and enter this lowest tier with five stacks thanks to the Daily Freebie.

Upon launch, the Flip & Go featured a maximum of 10 entries for each of the four stakes. However, that number has been adjusted recently and the stacks for purchase are now capped at a maximum of eight. This makes the bonus stacks based on the holdings during the Flipout stage more valuable in comparison.

The overall feedback for the new tournament format has been very positive, as outlined by Burke.

“Players love it! We have been very pleasantly surprised by the positivity seen across almost all feedback, of course not all players are interested in a new game type but those who have tried it have mostly good things to say about Flip & Go. We’ve also received some constructive criticism, which is also valuable.”

Further tweaks to the Flip & Go format may very well possible, as GGPoker is constantly reviewing and optimizing its schedule. One such adjustment was made with the expansion of the popular Daily GGMasters earlier in February.

The changes to the Daily Freebie promotion went live on February 10. All verified GGPoker players in eligible countries can claim their daily gift under the “My Promo” tab after each daily reset.

Daniil Medvedev Finds Another Way of Playing Professional Tennis


At 23, Rublev is two years younger than Medvedev and grew up playing junior tournaments against him in Russia. For a long time Rublev, seeded No. 8, and Karen Khachanov, 24, the third member of Russia’s latest golden generation, were better than Medvedev. The rise for Medvedev came in 2018 and 2019, when he nearly beat Rafael Nadal in the 2019 United States Open final.“He reads the game really well,” Rublev said of Medvedev. “It’s amazing, the patience he has to stay so long in the rallies, to not rush, to take the time, because in the end these little details, they make him who he is.”Russia is the only country with two players in the top 10. Khachanov gives it three in the top 20. Aslan Karatsev, 27, another Russian ranked No. 114, came out of nowhere to make the quarterfinals here in his first Grand Slam tournament.Medvedev comes into the quarterfinal on perhaps the best roll of his career. He has won 18 consecutive singles matches. He won the ATP Tour finals in London in November, pulling off the nifty trick of beating the world’s top three players — Novak Djokovic, Nadal and Dominic Thiem — in a single tournament. For Russia at the ATP Cup, he beat Alexander Zverev of Germany, a 2020 U.S. Open finalist, in a tight, three-set match in the semifinal round.Medvedev spent his early childhood in Moscow and played few sports other than tennis growing up. He worshiped Russia’s last golden generation, which included Marat Safin and Yevgeny Kafelnikov, who were in their prime when he was a young child. He moved to France to train as a teenager and became fluent in English and French.Medvedev could be heard screaming at his coach, Gilles Cervara of France, in French during his third-round match against Filip Krajinovic of Serbia, as he frittered away a two-set lead before recovering to win the final set, 6-0.

Meet America’s 63rd National Park


As Americans continue to weather the pandemic, the $2.3 trillion coronavirus relief and spending bill passed by the federal government in December brought an unexpected and lasting gift: a new national park.The 5,593-page spending package included a raft of provisions authorizing little-known projects — the construction of the Teddy Roosevelt Presidential Library in North Dakota, for one — and giving lawmakers a chance to advance a variety of long-delayed initiatives. Among them was the elevation of the New River Gorge, in southern West Virginia, to the status of Yellowstone, Yosemite and the country’s other most renowned outdoor spaces. The designation of the area — roughly 72,000 acres of land flanking 53 miles of the gorge — as a national park and preserve creates the 63rd national park in the United States and completes a multigenerational effort, started in the mid-twentieth century, to transform a tired industrial area into a national landmark.“Towards the end of this year, with these big bills coming down, I decided to strike,” said Shelley Moore Capito, a Republican and the state’s junior senator, who, along with Senator Joe Manchin III, a Democrat, introduced the New River Gorge legislation in 2019.“This was the right opportunity,” she said.A draw for rafters, kayakers and other outdoor enthusiastsThe gorge and its surroundings have been prized for decades as one of southern West Virginia’s more spectacular natural places.In 1963, the West Virginia House of Delegates passed a resolution seeking to designate the New River Gorge as a “national playground,” preparing to send the proposal to President John F. Kennedy, whose primary campaign was lifted substantially through support from West Virginia voters. But momentum to create a national recreation area stalled after Mr. Kennedy’s assassination later that year.Though the gorge remained a curiosity among rafters and outdoor enthusiasts, the area only received federal protection from the Interior Department in 1978, when it was designated a national river.Now, the outdoor offerings in the gorge have come to define the area as a premier destination for adventure sports in the East.The New River plunges 750 feet over 66 miles, resulting in long stretches of violent rapids that can reach a class five level, generally considered the most difficult that can be navigated by white-water boaters. (Licensed outfitters operate in several towns near the river, providing rentals and tours for rafting and kayaking.)The canyon walls, which soar as high as 1,600 feet, offer miles of cliffs that rank among the best in the East Coast for rock climbing. Sheer faces in the gorge made of robust Nuttall sandstone provide both traditional and sport-climbing routes across the difficulty spectrum.Bike routes are scattered throughout the park on both sides of the river, with options for both technical mountain biking and more casual pedaling along former railroad beds.A glimpse back in timeAccording to the National Park Service, geologists believe the New River — its name a misnomer used by early American explorers who often assigned the same name to any river they came upon for the first time — was a segment of the preglacial Teays River. This larger river, which traversed much of the current Ohio River watershed, was later diverted and broken up by glaciers. The age of the Teays is uncertain, but fossil evidence suggests it could be as much as 320 million years old, leaving its remnant, the New River, as quite possibly the second oldest river in the world.Beyond the millions of years of geological history on display, the gorge is also filled with signs of the region’s heritage as a major coal production hub.Miners once capitalized on the easy access to rich deposits of high-quality bituminous coal in the canyon, where the river had already shorn through hundreds of feet of rock. Especially after the Chesapeake and Ohio Railway linked the New River coal fields to markets in 1873, dozens of boom towns popped up along the river’s edge, thriving well into the 1920s.In 1963, a coal mine was still operating in the gorge, said Dave Arnold, a state tourism commissioner who operated a rafting company for more than 40 years.“In ’76 or ’77, if you were in my boat, we’d have been floating down the river and I would have been showing you, ‘here’s an old coal tipple, here’s the old hotel at Caperton, here’s this and that,’” he said.The demand for coal around the turn of the twentieth century was so high that towns existed every half mile along up the river, according to the Park Service. As the industry went into decline, however, by the 1950s many were already abandoned, leaving ghost towns scattered throughout the gorge. Additionally, logging during the late nineteenth century stripped vast portions of the gorge bare, clearing enormous swaths of virgin forest.The park contains the remnants of communities such as Nuttallburg and Kaymoor, which still stand near the riverbank and are accessible from points higher up. Seams of exposed coal are visible along some trails leading into the gorge and its towns, where abandoned mine portals and the foundations of coke ovens remain.Restoring an ecosystem with diverse wildlifeDespite the environmental degradation and pollution that industry unleashed, some unique ecological features make the gorge well-suited to a diverse combination of wildlife, which has slowly reappeared as time has passed.The river lies at the center of a migration corridor where plants and animals that typically range further north or south come together, including several federally endangered and threatened species, such as the Virginia big-eared bat and the Allegheny woodrat.According to Lizzie Watts, the park’s superintendent, the river itself is also notably warmer than surrounding areas, making it a popular warm-water fishing destination with more than a dozen public access points. The river is one of the premier spots for smallmouth bass fishing on the east coast, and muskellunge and walleye are common in the park today.“The next generation will have the opportunity to see what, in the last 150 years, it looks like when an area goes from being logged and mined to left alone,” Ms. Watts said. “The ecosystem has come back to full trees and mature forests.”As federal protections took effect after the Park Service began overseeing the area as a national river in 1978, wildlife has largely recovered, and many see an opportunity to showcase the region’s natural elegance.“To show off our rock climbing, our extreme sports availabilities in that area, is just really exciting,” said Ms. Capito of what she described as a “kind of wild and wonderful part of our state.” ‘The cream of the crop’The National Park Service, created in 1916, oversees more than 400 areas across the country, including national monuments, seashores and battlefields as well as parks, which together total more than 85 million acres.While the new title for New River Gorge does not fundamentally alter the area’s day-to-day operations, both lawmakers and the Park Service tend to view “national parks” as the crown jewels of the park system — a protection granted to some of the largest and most prized tracts of the country.“National Park status is usually considered like the cream of the crop,” Ms. Watts said. “But it really is just another one of those names.”The New River Gorge does not match the scale of many national parks in the western United States, where Death Valley, the Grand Canyon and Yellowstone sprawl over more than 1 million acres each.Nevertheless, officials expect the new designation to bring a substantial influx of travelers, boosted in part by a dedicated set of enthusiasts who strive to visit every national park.In typical years, around 1.3 million travelers visit the gorge, according to the Park Service’s tourism data. Based on studies of other areas that received national park status, Ms. Capito said she expects to see visitors increase by as much as 20 percent.“It does feel like the very beginning stages of transformation for the whole area,” said Becky Sullivan, the executive director of the New River Gorge Convention and Visitors Bureau. “I’ll be very, very interested to see where we are in about 10 years.”Maintaining the community and its favored pastimesAs unique outdoor attractions throughout the Appalachian region have gained more national visibility, some concern has grown over the idea of a wealthy and mobile set from out of state trampling the communities adjacent to these places.West Virginia remains the second-poorest state in the country in terms of median household income, according to data collected by the United States Census Bureau. And while tourism has brought a needed injection of wealth to areas all around the gorge, it has also changed the makeup of neighboring communities, as more people have come to visit the park or settle down near it.Interest in the natural offerings around the park has brought slow but measurable change for small towns nearby like Fayetteville. Officials say that the advent of remote work during the pandemic has only hastened a trend of properties in the area being repurposed for vacation rentals and outsiders snapping up second homes.“You cannot find a house for sale in Fayetteville, because they’re just in such high demand,” said Sharon Cruikshank, the town’s mayor. “So that definitely changed the budgeting of the town as well as the county.”When legislation was first introduced to designate the area as a national park, pushback came from some locals. Hunters have long enjoyed access to secluded sections of woods around the gorge, and with hunting prohibited in federal parks, some protested the potential loss of thousands of acres of hunting grounds.In a compromise, more than 65,000 acres of the total area were designated as a nature preserve where hunting can continue as before, and only roughly 7,000 acres directly within the canyon are officially off limits as national parkland. A provision was included to empower the park to acquire more than 3,000 acres of private land around its current boundaries as well, to expand the size of the preserve and add public hunting grounds.In a nod to tradition, the legislation also enshrines the right for visitors to continue to make use of one of the park’s most famous features — the New River Gorge Bridge — at least once a year.BASE jumping, an extreme sport in which jumpers parachute from elevated structures or cliffs, is banned in every other national park.But, since 1980, BASE jumpers have been permitted to plunge from the top of the 876-foot-high bridge and parachute down toward the river once a year, on Bridge Day, held one Saturday in October. The legislation designating the area as a national park allows that tradition to continue.As many as 100,000 people typically come to watch the jumpers plunge, according to Ms. Sullivan, providing a major boost for businesses in the region. The event has only been canceled twice, including last year because of the coronavirus.Bridge Day’s organizers advise jumpers that the only dependable way to touch down safely is to plan to land directly in the river. In normal years, hundreds do so, often multiple times that day, gliding down and softly hitting the New River’s waters.

Root: Pitch not to blame for England defeat


England captain Joe Root says team “outplayed” by India on tough surface as they lose second Test by 317 runs; skipper feels his men can learn from the way the hosts found control with the ball and batted calmly; third Test in Ahmedabad from February 24

Last Updated: 16/02/21 10:01am

England captain Joe Root says his squad must not get too down about their heavy defeat in the second Test against India.

England captain Joe Root says his squad must not get too down about their heavy defeat in the second Test against India.

Joe Root refused to blame the spin-friendly Chennai pitch for England’s thumping defeat to India in the second Test – and has urged his side to learn from the difficult conditions they faced.
England were spun out for 134 and 164 at MA Chidambaram Stadium on a dusty surface as India wrapped up a 317-run victory on day four to level the four-match series at 1-1.Rohit Sharma and Ravichandran Ashwin completed hundreds for India and Root says the hosts showed England a template for scoring runs on unhelpful tracks for batsmen. Root says his side must learn from the challenging conditions they faced in Chennai (Pic credit – BCCI) “I wouldn’t say it was a good pitch but it made for very exciting cricket and it was not the reason we lost the game. We were outplayed in all three departments,” said the England skipper.”For us, it’s a bit of an education. It was a surface that spun a huge amount and bounced more than we anticipated but we should take that as a learning and be better for it the next time we experience conditions that are similar.”The toss was an important one to win – but it wouldn’t have guaranteed us a win either. India showed you can score runs and found a way of managing a very tricky surface.”Our batters need to learn from how India rotated strike, while what I took from how they played was how calm and unflustered they were. When a delivery really misbehaved, they didn’t waver from their game-plan.” Ravichandran Ashwin (pictured) and Rohit Sharma scored centuries for India in the second Test (Pic credit – BCCI) Root – whose side will be looking to bounce back in the day-night third Test in Ahmedabad from February 24 with their six-match winning streak in overseas Tests having been snapped – also felt his bowlers could have been more frugal on day one when India reached 300-6 after electing to bat.”We have to find ways of building pressure for long periods of time with the ball, bowling six balls at one batter, which India made very difficult for us.”Can we string maidens together and force wickets through very disciplined passages of play? I think India did that better than us.”On day one we could probably have been a bit tighter and squeezed the game, making it hard for them to score freely. The four-match Test series is tied at 1-1 heading into the third Test, a day-night fixture in Ahmedabad from February 24 “We have to learn from the opposition, who played very well, but we are 1-1 in the series and there are two very important games to come.”We are very excited about that because of how well we played in the first game. We are very much in this series. It’s set up very nicely.”We have to stay level. We don’t get above our station when we win and it’s not all doom and gloom when we have tough weeks.”It is very important we stay level as a team. We have to learn but that is one thing we have done well in recent times so hopefully we can take that into the rest of the series.” 0:52 Root says he understands Moeen Ali’s decision to leave England’s bio-secure bubble and return home to his family Root says he understands Moeen Ali’s decision to leave England’s bio-secure bubble and return home to his family Root – who also confirmed that all-rounder Moeen Ali will miss the rest of the series having opted to fly home – said Ben Stokes only bowled two overs in the game for tactical reasons, not due to injury.”Ben is fit and able to bowl but, on that surface, you look at the overs of seam bowled and it was minimal,” said Root.”I’m sure Ben will have an impact on this series with the ball as he did in the first game. He can grab big moments and turn them on their head.”Pressed on whether he wanted to include the rested James Anderson, who had starred with a scintillating spell of reverse-swing bowling on day five of the first Test, Root added: “It was discussed. “But we need to look at the series as a whole. The pink-ball game looks an exciting opportunity for someone like him to have a real impact.”Follow text commentary of the day-night third Test between India and England in Ahmedabad on skysports.com and the Sky Sports app from 8.30am on Wednesday, February 24.

Just keep in mind that you must maintain great discipline in such a job, as not to lose yourself in the flexibility and freedom of your own time.
No Salary Ceiling
The biggest reason most poker players want to go professional is the unlimited profit available for those who dare to claim it.
Although money shouldn’t be your primary motivator, it’s hard not to think about the multi-million prizes at the biggest poker tournaments in the world.
Even if you are just starting out playing online on real money poker sites, there are still countless options with prizes significantly more extensive than what most working people can earn in their day jobs.

Plus, the best part about this is that there’s no salary ceiling on how much you can bring home each month.
Living and Traveling Anywhere in the World
Another great advantage of playing poker for a living is that you can experience the feeling of always being on vacation while traveling for work and making money in the process.
If you plan on becoming a full-time poker player, you can look forward to frequently traveling to some of the biggest and most exciting cities in the world.

From Las Vegas and London to Barcelona and Monaco, you make your own schedule as packed or free as you wish.

Moreover, as a professional poker player, you have unlimited freedom in choosing a location where you want to settle down.
If you want to make your home in a sunny and warm place, you can select a popular poker destination such as the Caribbean.
This will allow you to enjoy endless summers while still being very close to some of the most popular and rewarding poker tournaments.
The Disadvantages of Playing Poker for a Living
No Guaranteed Income
The most significant benefit of a day job is that you know exactly how much money you’re earning every month.

When you switch up your day job for a professional poker career, this safety net disappears.

While it’s true that you’ll be able to win massive amounts of money potentially, there’s no telling when or even if this will come.
Instability of income is a typical tradeoff in many careers that offer a higher profit ceiling.
If you like playing it safe and can’t risk running a negative balance for a few weeks or months, pursuing a career in Texas Hold’em probably isn’t the best way to go.

That said, if you’re ready to accept the swings and have the mindset to handle the pressure of unstable earnings, you can turn this disadvantage into your advantage.
The Road to Success Can be Arduous
Watching Daniel Negreanu toy with his opponents makes it seem almost effortless. But, most of us forget that we’re watching the end result of years of studying the game and the psychology of their competitors.

All professional poker players have experienced great highs and lows throughout their long journey.

Don’t go into it thinking that it’s going a smooth ride all of the time. Confidence is a must-have, but you should continuously work on your skills to back this up.
Of course, some players have achieved great success in their first few years of playing the game, but these are outliers.
If you’re aiming to make poker your lifetime career, you need to arm yourself with patience and always remember that you’re in it for the long run, and variance will catch up with you eventually.
Stable Budget Needed to Start
Although poker offers you the opportunity to win a lot of money, you also need to have adequate starting capital before you even consider devoting all of your attention to the game.
The lack of money is one of the more significant reasons why most players don’t commit to playing poker professionally.
For many players, it can take years before they can get to a consistent level of winning in poker. If you don’t have the capital to start or a stable day job to cover your poker losses, you can quickly grow tired of the stress and grind.
It’s crucial to remember that success isn’t guaranteed and that you should never risk the money you can’t afford to lose. Learning good bankroll management is a must!

Are you Ready to Become a Professional Poker Player?
The hard truth is that not everyone is cut out to be a world-class poker player. But, with enough patience and work, you can make a great living from playing poker.
This is because, ultimately, the pros heavily outweigh the cons, and most players who truly commit to studying and learning the game can succeed in it.

If you’re passionate about poker and ready to put your energy into it, nothing is stopping you from making a career out of it.
