Also snapshove is a good useful tool, but I'd be careful applying it
to final tables, and its a little dicey at 15bb, even for chips at
15bb my most frequent play when i vpip is minraise not shove. Under
ICM this is even more important because we want to fold if multiple
Very interesting and insightful video. This is something I've only recently been exposed to. With programs like Icmizer etc you get the idea that you should be shoving some of the small PP. Is there any merit to a pure push/fold strategy around 12bb-17bb?
Even in a monker run a 12bb stack is min raising HJ into 40bb and 50bb stacks: suited broadway, AA-JJ, TT mixing, AKs-AQs, AKo mixing, A8s-A6s, AT-A9,k9s-k8s, KQo mixing, and QJo mixing raise/fold with bits and pieces drawn from our OS range.
The interesting and tricky thing here is both monker and ICMizer etc are making assumptions on how the other players play their range, and many times and shorter stack depth its a mix of people playing pure push/fold and attempting a more balanced strategy, especially at mid/low stakes. How would you adapt your ranges under these conditions? Many thanks !

I've started playing regularly around the $5-$22 MTTs at GG Poker and I'm looking to focus on the end stages around 20-40bb stack depths and Final tables. So far I've been really focusing on a subset of 128 flops I've run using GTO+ BTN vs BB @ 30bb and thought it would be good to have a dedicated study group for this and other areas to share the workload and to keep each other focused and on track
Ideally you'd be familiar with ICMizer, GTO+ Flopzilla etc and at least given the ideas in the book Modern poker theory a look in as I think having this as a baseline is really important.
I think a focused session a week where one person takes point is important. Also if it becomes a consistent thing we could get group coaching here to check our work and hopefully challenge our assumption.Post here and if there are a couple of us I'll start a Discord server. Cheers

@05:45 whats your river strategy unimproved ? on 6c8h5sTh how would it differ on say 2c, 2h, Tc Ks with this player pool vs what you'd expect to see at GTO? cheers
ps also in a couple of spots you mention you prefer to ch back hands that have decent equity, but would be forced to fold vs ck/r. Do you think people in weaker fields ck/r flops at anywhere near GTO freq? Its an area I'm working on in my studies and imho people don't BUT people will call more freq and get sticky, which then makes what you say about SPR in several spots really important. Is that because at lower SPR we are less able to dent equity with our bets? many thanks

Database analysis for population tendencies using Hand2Note for stack size in MTTs. This would work well as a compare/contrast with sims: what is the theory, what are people actually doing. Can be done pre and post flop. Cheers

Grind programs like ICMizer and HRC tbh

What is the significance of BB/100 MTT as a stat? At a guess it means # of BB won per 100 hands. Would that not be slightly warped depending on how deep you go in the MTT as there is more chips won? As a live reg my metric was always $ per hour, or ROI, very interested to hear about this.
FWIW as a father with another on the way, I think hearing about how you balance life commitments, playing, studying, fitness etc etc would be fascinating. GL GL

Interesting enough the results don't include mental breakdown over the sample. The simulator assumes that your ROI remains constant, I'm pretty sure that would, at the very least compound the fall, if not cause it to become exponential.
