Combos video overview.
This is SplitSuit's first concept video for ThePokerBank.
In this video, SplitSuit explains how to work out combos for different types of hands. This is followed by practical examples of using combinatorics in both preflop and postflop poker. The video concludes with 3 hand history examples that highlight how combos can be used to help make more +EV decisions.
Other important concepts discussed in this training video include weighted ranges and blockers. There is also a quick introduction to Flopzilla EV Calculator, which is a valuable tool for when working with (and learning about) combos and blockers in Texas Hold'em. Watch Using Flopzilla for an introduction to this tool.
James "SplitSuit" Sweeney is author of Dynamic Full Ring Poker: Beyond The Basics. He also coaches at his personal website www.SplitSuit.com. He uses the alias *Split* at the 2+2 forums, which is where you can find his famous contributions to the COTW thread.
