if you have bought Odds oracle, then you just have to sit down and learn how to use it the best way posssible. It looks like an Tranbant from the old Soviet, but it is actually very powerfull for many things. Use the range explorer well. and learn how to write out ranges. Then you will start to get a good feel for different hands strenght and how they are doing in different spots.

We are 70 BB deep effectively.
CO raises to 3,4x(PLO25).
BTN folds and i am in SB with KQ88$ds.
I decide to 3 bet!! I dont know, if 3 betting this hand is a thing. But please dont judge me too hard.
I face a 4 bet and decided to make the call. I just check folded the the flop, which was a J66(RB) flop.
We all know, that we basicly need 33% equity to call a 3 bet. But given the effective stacksize, there will be an SPR: 0,5 ish.
Which means that i only need 25% equity on the flop to stack off.
I ran it in odds oracle. KQ88$ds Vs AA** have 33,822% equity.
KQ88$ds hits 25% equity on 55,9% of flops.
How should i think about these numbers and the situation? If that question makes sense!
Is it more correct to call the 4 bet, when the SPR will be so low? And i will more often realize my equity.
And if thats is just some what true, at how low of an SPR on the flop should i just shove preflop......now that i have kind screwed up all ready. I think to avoid to miss play the flop, the excact hand i describe, i may have folded incorrectly!!
Overall i guess i need some clarity arround 3 betting and calling 4 bets. How to think about equity and SPR in that spot?´
Cheers and happy new year.

I think you have some good points/adjustments preflop to beat these small stakes games.
Taking out the bottom part from early positions rfi is the way to go i think, which i havent realy considered myself.
But i have 2 questions, which you may be able to address in the future.
I strugle to figure how to play in SB, when the pot most likely will go multiway. Means UTG or HJ open and there is 1 or 2 callers. The types of hands i strugle with is suited ace with a medium to low pocket pair. So for example: A884$ss or A955$ss. Should we enter pots with these types of hands in the worse position.I guess it is obvious, but if we enter pots with these types of hands and our opponents ranges is obvious not correct or solid. If we hit a set, should we just straight up prepare to play a small pot with baby sets, and maybe some times straight up prepare to get away from them? I know....it all depends!!!
But some times it can be easy to get away, when regs hit better sets and they play their hands face up, and i for sure do the same very often in those types of spots. But some times other regs ranges are also kind of out of bounds and they are in there with some semi strong draw!!
Do you have any over all advice to approach these types of spots?
What kind of hands should we defend the BB with for these multiway spots, where ranges is wide and out of bounds. Like king high suits....allways defends or nitting it up.
Hands like 8764$ss/rb. Should defend those types of hands and just expect to win a small pot most of the times, when we actually make a hand?
I know it is super hard to give any realy strong good advice on these spots.
But you have most likely been in these types of games many many times. And i wonder how you approach these types of spots.
Hope it makes sense.

I would fold pre., especially in the absolute OOP. To call it a shitty hand is a bit much. But with a lot of action postflop, the flush possibilities is very very often dominated in these multisay pots. But very hard to get away from. So all and all, just fold pre and move on to the next hand...

Thaaat 4 card game make my head spin.............
I am struggling with counting wraps. I try to exercise it as much as i can find time to. But i was wondering, if there is some kind of method to the madness. Maybee there is a video about it. I need to be able to take a quick glance at a flop and figure out, what kind of draws, there are available. Sometimes i even have trouble counting my own, when i am in a hand. I have to learn this as it just takes too much away from my brainpower(if there is any) in gameplay, and i then have less capacity to make good sound logic decisions. Am i one few having this problem or is it a common topic, when a pokerplayer transit to PLO.
I hope you can help me here.........

Great topic Nick....this is a spot i am struggeling with at the moment. Good to see, that we actually can have some flats in SB and not only a 3 bet or fold strategy. It would be nice with the same topic on BTN. How wide can we be pre and how can we utilize position postflop. Maybe someone allready has made a video about it?

In your first video for RIO, you have a plan, where you wan`t to make some content on game theory and expected value. Are they somewhere in the series and i have missed it. Or are they not done yet...or simply dropped?
So this sounded negative.....i do think you make some great content.

if you click on Popup Groups.....okay.
Then on the top left there is a box(New Group) and another box(delete) and then a small box. There you can import and export. So export from the old hud to what ever place, and then import to you new hud.
I think it must be that way, though i am shooting from the hip......

i have played 50 K hands on plo10. And after a rough start i am now a 2,44 BB/100 winner. The last 13 K hands a 22 BB/100. I know that this is a small sample and it doesnt realy tell anything about my ability in PLO. But i still want to take a shoot at plo25. I have played aggressive vs BTN and CO in SB.........a kind of 3 bet or fold. And then just flatting more in the BB. But at PLO25, where the blind structure is a little different, i am thinking about changing my stragegy a bit. I am thinking some what tighter in SB and somewhat more aggressive in BB. But if any of you guys and girls have sugestions or if the is some vids about it, then i would be glad to hear it.
