Dude , you are really good with the vlogs. Doing a marathon to finish up your videos. Why aren’t you doing more ? I’m a poker enthusiast getting my statistics/math in line. Let me know if you’d be willing for a chat .

Nice video. I play quite a bit a 6 Max and heads up on ignition. But the action here, even in a 9 handed 3/5 game s unreal. Love it!

James McCabe 

I'm sorry, but the name "Poker Statistician" is a stretch for you. I expected to be watching an intelligent, math-based poker channel. This is just another one of these YouTube vloggers that aren't profitable enough poker players so they make videos to help keep their bankroll steady. But then you're spending time filming and editing instead of at the poker table. I like your channel, I just think your channel name is extremely click-bait-y.

I like a raise with a hand like 99+ and set mine with less in the 1st spot

Hey Mat, what's the name of your opening track to this vlog?



Great vlog man,  I like the content and that it's mostly just hand analysis. On the 77 hand, I have no idea why everyone is saying they like a larger squeeze there. That is always a flat in that spot. You're in for $5, so great price to flat for implied odds on other players besides original opener. (clearly a fold if it's just you and him) Short stack is never folding when he has only $38, so other players are getting a better price to flat your 3 bet to $100. If someone does come along to that 3 bet(which SB did), pretty much every flop without a 7 is going to be bad for you hand. Stack - Pot ratio is so low that any sort of equity from the other player is just going to get it in. Plus not to mention you're in an LA game full of crazy station players.

Joshua Keen 

I felt a lot of your preflop raises in $3/$5 were too small. Most raises in that game start at $30-$40. Also, I agree with the others that your 3-bet sizing was too small against the short stack. Add the pressure with 60bb; 3bets go a long way and the increased sizing will have you take most pots uncontested.

Zeke Bones 

I love how your always to the point and don't add fluff, not that that's always bad.


Welcome to LA 🤣🤣🤣


First video, Subbed! Nice breakdowns!


Jam all in 77 is my thinking.

They need to have pp 88+, and call you with it. You still have two outs.

More fold equity with all in.

Mr. Fulton 

Good line on not checking down in the dark. Not profitable long term. Thanks for the content as always. Good stuff.

Jameson Wittman 

Nothing is going your way!

Clint Perkinson 

Check it down when there's another player in the hand? Horrible etiquette by that tool. Sounds like a lotta tools were ur opponents in this session.

Teo G Poker 

Squeeze to $160. You already know shorty is committed...this gives better odds to remaining players when he calls. 💵💵💵☺

Matthew Halliday 

I like the squeeze there. Problem was is that hand in the small blind was exactly right for a call. I wouldn't have c bet that flop personally but he did make it easy for you with the donk bet.

Meat Grinder 

Ive never played there prob since 2005, i live in OC so i usually do the gardens or the bike . Nice remodel?

Blake Masterson 

Hercules cut scene was funny as fuck.

Daniel Barreto 

pocket seven raise was ok all things considered( stack size and relative hand strength) you win on a lot of dry boards with that many folds pre. c bet will take it down more often than not. dude that paired hi queen also let you keep some of your money by leading out. he shoulda checked it and got that c bet off ya.
