On The EV of Talking Strategy With Your Opponents

For a beginning player, it’s good to talk about betting strategy at the table because there is much valuable information to be learned from the experienced players who are willing to divulge their thinking. Eventually though, as a player gains experience, the negative EV of divulging will exceed the small gains in knowledge that come from routine comments and discussions after hands.

If what I just said is true, it means that the optimum path is one of significant change: from talking, to not talking. So if you play a decent game of poker, and you still talk about hands at the table, maybe it’s time you stopped.
