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.

and being picky here, the second last line under, what is combinatorics. It say 52x21x50x49. 21 have to be 51...correct? I am sorry to very picky here at things, which probably obvious. But i am just so unsure of math. But i decided to eat this elephant series....one bite at the time. And i am learning a lot.

Hi Tom. This series is just the stone cold nuts. I am not good at math, so i am eating an elephant....bite by bite. But there is one thing i can`t figure out, these numbers in the introduction: 222/286 unpaired flops? How shall i understand that sentence? I hope you will bare with me for probably dumb questions, because there will probably come more. In advance TY.

Hi RIO members.
It seems to me, that there is not made many videos with database review anymore. I cant find any for plo for example, but maybe plo is very complicated to get something out of with a database review. But holdem i dont see many either. Back in the days it seemed to me, that a database review was used a lot to figure out, if opening ranges was solid, cold calling ranges was solid, C betting frequencies was solid and so on and so on. Also to figure out if opening suited conecters UTG was profitable and stuff like that. These day`s it seems to me, that all the pros just consult pio or other solvers to figure out the same things/get the answers. Am i on the right track here? And is database reviews just old school and not worth anything anymore? I would still like to see a database review(just going nuts with 10-12 parts.....realy dry stuff) for a large sample of plo hands. How to set up filters and stuff like that. But i am a old school guy, so maybee it is just time to change my mindset with these things?
Hope to get a few constrfuctive coments and otherwise GL at the tables.

Hi Nick. Me too, being out of town for a while. Diffenately going with a tighter range for me as there is just so many spots i don`t know what to do postflop. I think i was running pretty poor for a while in PLO, so i have switched back NL for a while to regain my confidence. Running poor combined with being confused in many spots is not a good combo. I have a strong mental game, but in PLO i have played for stacks in too many pots with bad equity in a kind of tilt play. So for a while i will just study PLO and then come back and play THE GREAT GAME later:-). But thank you for answering back.

Yeah , it is a great game. If i could just ask one question. I am trying to figure out opening ranges from the different positions and i am going through Lescek's(i think that's his name) vids on that regard. But i can't realy find any info about cold calling procentes. I know that is different fron position to position and vs different positions. But what would be a solid cold calling procent to beat PLO 10?
Is there any RIO vids with database analysis, where i can find that kind of info maybee?
Anyway's thank you for your time Nick.

- I am calling preflop, basicly setmining. Is that a terrible way of thinking in PLO with a very weak Q Q hand like this? So is it a okay call, or borderline call or fold pre?
- Now, that i have flopped a set, i think it is correct to raise the flop. But I do not like my sizing, i should have made it bigger. But should i have just made it as big as possible?
- I do not like the turn card, but as i have a 5 in my hand, it makes it more unlikely that villans have a 5 combo that make a straight. So i decide to jamm and go with it. But could i actually check fold the turn? Or check call(Basicly it will be a check raise all in)?
- Or am i just beeing result orientated as i lost the hand. That i played the hand semi okay, and just have to get used to PLO and the swings.
- BTW. Villan showed up with J 8 7 5 double suited(hearts and spades)
