In this final volume of Kyorugi, I review my final (for now) heads up session on PokerStars. I play several opponents and focus on developing basic reads from the first few hands of a session. Unless you're playing a completely balanced game, it's imperative to develop reads as quickly as you can, allowing you to immediately exploit your opponents. At the same time, you should keep your reads fluid and adjust your strategy as you continue to collect information. The most important lesson in this video, though, is to find a way to be critical of your own play without getting down on yourself. Record and observe your play, be honest about your mistakes, but don't beat yourself up over them. Instead, find a way not to repeat them.
