Understanding variance

Many poker players have heard about variance, but most of them don't understand what it is. 

This video will introduce you to the concept of poker variance and help you know how important it is to come to terms with it. 

Poker is a game of statistical distribution: every hand we play is at the mercy of probability. Our goal should be to make decisions that can tilt the balance of probability in our favor and not favor opponents. However, there is always a chance that by making right, profitable long-term decisions, we will still lose.
