Rory Young is a high-stakes professional poker player with experience in live cash games as big as $1000/$2000 NL. 

As someone who used solvers as the backbone of his study, Rory grew increasingly frustrated with the tedious and expensive process of running sims, and he decided to find a better way.

And that’s when the Odin Poker team was born.

In this week’s episode, Rory joins the show to give an Odin Poker review and share why he’s more optimistic than ever about the game’s profitability despite this dramatic leap in poker study technology.

Key Learning Points: Using Odin Poker To Review Your Game

The top players in the game are using solver-based study to inform their decisions and strategies. The ability to purchase server space with supercomputers and run sims 24/7 has increased the information gap between high-stakes crushers and recreational players, everyday grinders, and mid-level pros. 

With Odin Poker, you can now access thousands of sims on your browser, with just a 20-second delay. As a result, a spot that used to take hours (not to mention the ability to correctly input data into the solvers) can now be reviewed in seconds. That means you can play your session, mark hands you want to review and use Odin to check each of those spots. 

In this episode, Rory says, “Incremental improvements get you to greatness,” and with this new tool, it’s never been easier to make those improvements daily.

About the Author Elliot Roe

Hi, I'm Elliot Roe... And I Help Poker Players Squeeze Every Ounce Of EV From Their Poker Skills and Abilities. Over 7500 poker players have downloaded my Mindset MP3s to boost their focus on the table and to relax and recover post-session. I have personally worked with hundreds more on mastering their emotions and the tabling and developing the “Pro-Athlete Mindset” needed to be successful into today’s games. Creating a strong poker mindset has been the “secret weapon” of the high stakes elite for years now, and I started this site to bring that edge to any player willing to work on that area of their game.
