Curious how it is that Ivey and Antonius, the two biggest online winners - that's right online - have both stated that books/math did not lead them to success. Both are alleged feel players who get into their opponents heads (incidently Dwan is quite good at this too). So i'm curious how the industry of poker math/analysis is catching up. Would a Skulsky, Galfond, Cates have an edge over Ivey or Antonius these days because, as the argument must go, the theoretical approach outflanks the psychological? Did Ivey or Antonius ever make big scores on players as good as Skulsky, Galfond ,or Cates? On a side note, there has been a conspicuous lack of nl or plo played by raiseonce or fakelove888. To me, this indicates that the competition looks -EV to them. All indications point to this, but still a part of me refuses to believe that there is much -EV for those guys anywhere.
