Damn this sounds shady why don't a group of 3-4 people just bunch together and buy 1 piosolver from a trusted source then split it 6 ways, if anyone is interested in doing this with me pm me.
As there is no incentive for people to scam each other when they are putting money towards buying 1 sim as they literally have nothing to gain and it takes no time to receive it from a trusted buyer...

Thanks for ur reply! Atm i'm struggling a lot with bet sizing OTF knowing when to use 1/3 strat or just go for 2/3+ max value vs fish or IPvsBB spots.
So what about the 3/4 sizing on 852r is it too complex to answer in a single statement lol?

Hey shifty, i had a question about the 45s hand at 33:00, why did you xraise 2.5x instead of 3x OOP in a 3! pot on 4c2s5s?
I think you mentioned earlier in the hand that you will have a lot of pocket pairs in this spot so are you doing a lot of xraising with those hands here? This is really confusing because the SPR is quite large so i thought it doesn't make sense to do this type of strat, do u mind explaining why this is optimal or better then just calling with range and xraising 3x?
Also i'm guessing another reason is that he might be 3!ing all his overpairs+ OTF vs a 2.5x so raising might become better, seeing how his play might look on future streets OTT...
Would appreciate a response cheers :)

5! AI or choose a good 5! sizing maybe it's slightly more +EV
I'm a maniac tho, call more often vs these sizings tho but i don't think many 10nl players know how to defend vs 5! and might fold a bit more but yeah you need em to fold a lot more since it's preflop so you risk a lot but you need em to fold a lot too.

@ 18:11 The 69h hand on 7c6h3s MW is so confusing, so you x-call a bet from IP in sb then bb 2nd player x-raise squeezes IP folds and now you call?
Do you expect bb to be xing range here as does sb and he will have a lot of GS combos like 4x in this spot, MW pots are so tough in general...

If villain is going to be calling a majority of river run-outs/all 3 streets (wider then what solver suggests) with TP+ but will fold to a turn x-raise, EV of betting turn > EV of x-raising if you factor in villain's river tendencies so exploitatively we bet TPTK+ OTT but if we don't include that then x-raising turn is better...?

AsKh vs Ep cc (SRP, MW Pot)
Qs3d3s t = Th
Hero bets UTG, V cc (lp left to act), Lp folds
AsTc7c t = 8h (MW Pot, SRP)
Hero bets in cu, V on bu cc (sb left to act), sb folds
OTT in both hands villain's ccing range with 1 person left to act behind is going to be TP+, FD's/strong draws basically a very narrow calling range. Therefore OTT villain will have equity advantage vs our range, and we should do a lot of checking/check our whole range vs. his range that is basically Ax+ & very strong draws?
In regards to how population tend to play OTT when faced with a bet or a check i think majority of the time they will def call all TP combos OTT and when xed to bet all TP's for the most part.

Thanks for the helpful reply!, i think i need to work on using my HUD better for sure.
Haha full-ring... i find that you get into a lot more MW pots with full-ring esp as stacks get deeper which is an area that is sort of yet to be explored, in regards to the 66 hand on KdKs8d do you just end up checking more of your range the more OOP you are assuming you had Kx there and BU has high c-bet do you prefer a bet or x-raise?
Like when i'm in a MW pot OOP i struggle what to do, such as if the other villain's in the hand are very stationy and i'm 1st to act do i just want to be betting for value or xing my whole range (if there are spots where someone will have a high cbet and someone will over-call, x-raising becomes more favorable then betting).

Hey Julian nice video man :) had a question in regards to playing multiple tables & tightening up/not taking marginal spots that aren't going to be massively +EV
I struggle to 5-6 table reg tables (no zoom on sites i play), i find that i can't focus properly given all the things going on and i find myself not being able to handle playing a lot of marginal spots all at once (and it tends to stress me out esp when my timebank runs out or the site just auto-folds me).
So i was wondering when you decide to play more tables do you have to end up just playing tighter in general, i'm playing the micros/smaller stakes atm so i think i could get away with this strategy but idk... was wondering your thoughts?

Agreed i think the turn over-bet is very unnecessary, flop is good would go 3/4-pot here on this texture MW given said villains, 6c is not a turn you want to be over-betting... they can still have the nuts here/a lot of defends esp after 3 cc OTF at least one player will have 78s/56s/69s/66 etc.
Yes SPR is weird as you didn't expect to get that many calls OTF I'd bet around $7 and depending on action i will fold/call etc., i think there is also merit to checking here as well interesting spot OTT for sure MW pots are tricky esp OOP
Over-betting pot in this spot def worst decision.

Yeah poker is not easy, you have to put in A LOT of hours/hands + play your A-game/not auto-pilot almost 100% of your session. If you don't do one or the other you will lose money.
You have to mentally be there as well like the stress of variance, hours, and just playing perfect every damn second...
Pretty sure that is what a real job feels like tho like owning a business or being an engineer etc.
But yeah there is way less variance in those types of jobs
Just going on a rant lol sorry if this didn't help.

Hey what does having an equity advantage even mean exactly, like i get range advantage in terms of nut combos but not equity advantage?
Like hero's overall equity is 49% and villain's is 51% therefore villain has equity advantage but it's only by 2% so...
I'm guessing the range of all our hands has more PE then the range of all of villain's hands if we say we have equity advantage or is there another meaning i'm not getting?
Sept. 18, 2017 | 2:29 a.m.
Micro stakes tho, i'd need specific notes/reads that villain will 5! jam/over-defend stuff like that if we 4! to $2.50 100bb deep i don't see how we have equity to call assuming his 5! range is KK+ AKs+ even tho i think it's just AA.
Sept. 14, 2017 | 2:41 a.m.
As long as villain calls 50%+ worse hands then you have a profitable/+EV value bet.
I think it might be a bit too thin, but it's sort of close we need villain to be calling 3 streets with Jx here or for villain to have called flop with a lot of Ax, i can see a lot of backdoor suited Ax calling and really we are only trying to get value out of those Ax.
We are getting called and losing to #8 AK #2 ATs #2 JTs #2-3 Jx with a FD maybe some slowplayed sets and 2pairs, so already we need villain to call like #12-15 combos of worse hands so let's say villain has A2s-A8s that's still only #10 combos.
I guess run out matters a bit too as river isn't a considered a brick as it does give us a lot more nut hands then villain so we do have better hands to value bet such as KQ+ like #16 and a lot of Flushes...

This is a spot i've always wondered say we are in a MW pot with a whale and an agro reg, and this is a texture where hero has a range disadvantage or a spot where hero should x range mostly.
Preflop: Hero raises AA UTG, Agro reg calls in CU, Whale calls OTB, 3-way to the flop (100bb deep)
I guess we still x-call, if we bet and get raised by CU the whale is still going to be defending parts of their range for us so theoretically what do we do here and EV wise what do we do here?
What if there are multiple whales in the pot?
