Abdul is Pissing Me Off

I’m in the process of trying to make any kind of sense of Abdul Jalib. I’ve heard of Abdul’s slightly different school of preflop strategy on and off for a few months now, but I didn’t take the time to hunt down what the information was until after posev.com went missing. So when Hdouble referenced Abdul’s Usenet post in his “Cost of Cover” entry, I thought I’d try to read up and figure out what the fuss was about.

And it’s pissing me off. First off, it’s extremely dense. It might take me weeks to decipher everything, but my initial impression of the strategies are that they’re overly concerned with concealing the strength of monster hands. I’m not wild about that idea, nor am I wild about my analysis. I have a knot in my stomach, and it’s refusing to go away. I want to pretend that I never heard of Abdul.

Ok, to be more organized in my thought, I want a clearly written philosophy and theory that underlies the strategy, and I’d like to know where that philosophy and theory stands in contrast to other well-known theorists. There are a couple times when Abdul writes, “This differs from Sklansky and Malmuth.” That fine, but more often than not, I’m not clear about what the philisophical difference is that has caused this difference in strategy.

With apologies to Monty Python, “My brain hurts.”

    Yea, as a general rule for me, if Hank understands it, I know it’s going to be wayyyyy over my head. ;)

    If you poke around his archives you’ll find a bunch of Abdul-related posts that might help you out.

    Congrats on your Blog of the Week mention!

    Your pointer is appreciated, April, as well as the blogroll entry. I’m just now reading comments that I didn’t know I had, so I haven’t checked out your site yet (though I’ve heard about it, of course).
