Latest David Apostolico Articles

Strategy for Making Something Happen in Poker
Iíll leave it to others to discuss whether poker is a sport or not. However, there are many similarities between poker and sports. In this article I want to explore some of those similarities and the lessons that can be learned.
A Strategy Question to Improve Your Poker Game
If you are playing a tournament and you only win those pots when you have the best hand, you are not going to advance very far. Furthermore, if you find yourself frequently calling with the best hand, you are not extracting maximum value for your strong hands.
Don't Talk Too Much When Playing Poker
On a trip to the Borgata in Atlantic City, David Apostolico was reminded of that old Run DMC song 'You Talk Too Much.' He wasn't offended by his opponents' speaking habits. On the contrary, he welcomed their comments as they were giving away more information than they intended.
Doing a 180 in Poker
Poker is still a game about minimizing mistakes. If youíre not making enough, though, youíre probably not doing enough to win, either.
The Power of Aggression
According to David Apostolico, you can't underestimate the power of aggressive play late in a poker tournament. This article gives you a real life example of how to use this poker strategy.
Calling to Exert Pressure
Common wisdom in poker says that in the great majority of situations, if you are going to enter a hand it is better to be the aggressor. But calling can also be an aggressive move.
Luck and Poker
What separates winners and losers in the world of poker? Is it luck or skill? The role of luck is a big one, but don't overestimate it.
