Frequently, then, a different play becomes correct depending upon what your opponent has. For example, a bluff raise might have a reasonable chance of working if your opponent has nothing but two aces. It has less chance of working if that opponent has aces up. It has little to no chance of working if he’s made a straight and no chance whatsoever against aces full.
The trouble is that unlike chess and many other games, poker is a game of speed. He has coached a team to win their national cup on six occasions in three different countries. Every once in a while you are allowed to think about a hand, but in general you have to make decisions in a few seconds. You can’t sit there for two minutes calculating odds, trying to read your opponents’ hands, trying to figure out what they are thinking, and then deciding upon your best play.
