ACTUAL STUDENT REVIEW

Brilliant course, Excellently taught “For anybody who doesn't know the math of poker it is like you are simply guessing at what you are doing. I have often wondered how much maths are involved in poker but have never bothered to investigate this. When I saw this course on Udemy I immediately thought that is a must for me as I was one of these guessing Poker players. Having watched a lot of poker on various TV channels in the UK Some of them have said , "you don't need to know much maths to be reasonable." So I watched a couple of episodes from them which covered the the rudimentary's but having watched this course now I have realised that I was playing with both hands tied behind my back. I am now itching to do more of Altons courses and then possibly getting some tuition from him in the very near future. Top course Alton!" – Keith
