fwiw, Icmizer allows for multi table ICM calculations and bounty inputs which would save you a huge amount of time. You can also quite quickly switch between cEV and ICM.

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
players vpip.

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 !

Hi guys,

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

Modern poker theory, GTO+, and ICMizer. IMHO start with your end game first eg FTs and 20-40bb stacks as the errors are so costly.GL :)

@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

What analysis have you done away from the table to begin to answer your own question?

Grind programs like ICMizer and HRC tbh

Good video by Owen where he uses an online program for this as well a very insightful discussion regarding field size

Comment | 13Strike commented on BB/100 MTT Challenge

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

Would love to see this type of analysis for MTTs!

Been searching for this for a while. Very few resources out there apart from the above video. Needs more imho as so critical

Would love to see more of this type of video. Thx

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.

FWIW, SB called. Do we think his squeezing range is identical to his 3bet range vs only UTG? If not I think we can include more combos than pure value in his range?

Hi mate, SNG specific? How relevant will your course be to MTT FT HU? thx

Think stack size and relative position are left out of the discussion as I curious to understand the situation where OOP ck/r flop with sets.I assume we're deep in these instances? cheers :)
