2:30 :you mentionned a possible bluff JJ with heart on this KQX board. Isn't JJ too strong to start bluffing? Especially in a 3 way?
I would have think the bluffs come mostly from the bottom of our pocket pairs.

Thx for the content , it is great to try another format.

Hello ,
05:00 :Do you have any open shove range ? You did not mention this option but I feel hands for example like 66-77 seems great candidate in the push range.

Post | Cassoulet posted in Chatter: Pads on Pads forum

Hello I purchased Pads on Pads course.
I have nothing to say about the course itself it is good so far.

For every runitonce courses there is a dedicated forum on Runitonce to ask questions.
But from the email I received : For this course, questions should be asked in a Facebook group with our real names , I don't get it. I purchased it here on Runitonce .

I personnaly don't use social networks and absolutely hate them , plus I don't want want my real name to be exposed in public . That 's my personnal position on this, but in a general matter , in the first place : Why do I have to go on a social network to ask questions about a runitonce course when there is a forum here?

If I am the only one having an issue with this, then ok no problem , what do you, other owners of the course, think about being forced to go on facebook to ask questions?

Hello Seth , great stuff.

25:25 Table 3 When you have KJo SB vs LJ , in Villain shoes with QJ I would have think that this is one of the superstar bluff combination blocking heavily SB offsuits KX (KQo KJo)

Thx for the "avoid auto pilot " advices it is so true , very easy to fall in this trap.

Thx man, actually I knew this section , I saw few of the vids but it did not match my expectations.
I was hoping some other theory videos on this topic were not listed.

Hello , I am looking for a theory vid that covers sizings and why we use certain sizings over others.

Anything in mind?

Oct. 12, 2020 | 4:58 a.m.

Great vid man . Thx .

Sept. 28, 2020 | 3:34 a.m.

Hello, thanks for the vid.

01:50 You said that BVB when you are SB on tables 1-2-3 (no antes) you will have a RFI strategy but on the last one(the 25/50 +ante) you will have a limping strategy . Can you elaborate why?
With this preflop strategy(no ante : SB RFI, ante: SB limp) aren't we risking more to win less ?

Hey man great vid again.

19:20 . CO calling ATs vs 12bb LJ jam
at the first glance this call surprised me a lot.

Chip EV , LJ, Nash pushes 22% (22+,A2s+,A9o+,K8s+,KJo+,Q9s+,QJo,J8s+,T8s+,98s,87s)
ATs is winning a lot altough in reality I don't think LJ pushes that wide :

If a tighter LJ pushes : 17% (22+,A3s+,ATo+,K9s+,KJo+,QTs+,JTs,T9s)
ATs wins very small in chipEV

Considering that chipEV the ATs call could be just slightly profitable, that now you are in the money it is $EV so I'd assume it will tighten the ranges, and the fact that there are 2 stacks behind that can make you give up 12bb without playing your equity.
Can ATs be a fold or do you think it is too strong ?

Sorry for the long question

OMGIsildurrrrman12 If I recall you are cash game player.
Alex answered very well.
Just wanted to add a (pretty obvious) reason why mtt ranges are looser than cash game it is because of antes , it is one extra big blind in the pot.

Hello Oxota thx for the vid

30:30 table on the right. 3betting AJ against 16bb opener .
What hands would you use to balance this play? Broadways suited ?

32:00 table on the left 3betting more with no SB in the pot.
interesting , I would have think the opposite : since there is less money in the pot I would have risk less for a lower reward. So basically I would 3bet less often with my continues.

If I follow your logic this could be the same for pre-ante period ? We have lower immediate odds so we tend to 3bet more with our continues?

lov your vids man .

July 14, 2020 | 12:38 p.m.

thx ginzaboom , might be a situation ( playing versus a shorstack when shortstacks are very close) where I underestimate too much ICM .

July 1, 2020 | 4:35 p.m.


4:05 BVB " this is a situation where I want to raise way more than normal" .
Why? BB being 8/9 and very close to the shortstack , I would assume he would play close to chipEV.

28:45 You suggested that we could have some 3b jam. Which hands you think could 3bet all in and why ?

Thx for the vid

July 1, 2020 | 3:51 a.m.

Hello great vid

13:20 : JTcc What do you think about the option of check raising small and get in on the turn? Although he sized pretty big, in my opinion we still have some room to XR small. I feel that our value hands benefits more with the XR small .

thx for the content

Comment | Cassoulet commented on Monotone Boards

Why is the small bet prefered?
My understanding of this was because of nut distribution , when OOP has a lot of nuts (flushes here) , IP can't size big . I see the same happening on low paired boards , where IP mostly bet small. Is it the reason or is there another concept behind it?

June 3, 2020 | 12:37 a.m.

9:45 : Can you elaborate more on why AK can't Raise/call? I would have think that despite ICM AKo is strong enough to induce and call all in but would have push AQo .

Thx for the vid.

Alright so let's say same situation but he has a much weaker hand this time, is raise folding possible ? What I always thought was that we can't raise fold in this situation with any hand, because giving up such large portion of our stack and our equity is giving up our future in the tournament just to ladder up.

April 24, 2020 | 9:39 p.m.

Hello Sam

36:50 imluckbox AQo 5.5bb raising 4.5bb , you said it would give him some flexibility if 2 players go all in behind him. . So I assume it is a raise/fold if there is too much action behind. That's something I am struggling with. Isn't it a disaster to sacrifice so much of our stack just to ladder up? And we have a pretty decent hand.

Thx for the vid

April 23, 2020 | 9:22 a.m.

I got to say this time it was pretty hard to follow your reasoning ^^
but it is always great to have your insights.

March 23, 2020 | 3:34 p.m.

Hello Sam, welcome back
35:37 the J8s fold. You said you would have continue for chips , but fold here on final table.
That's a concept I might not understand well, in this situation you are one of the shorter stack although 5 players are pretty close in stack .
I would have assume we tend to play a bit closer chip ev in this situation

So my 2 questions are :
1. in general if all the small stacks players are very close in stackdepth (and we are one of them) do we tend to play closer to chip ev strategy ? I guess it will also depends if all the small stacks are 20bb deep or 40bb deep for example.

2 . (did not happen in this video) in general when we are by far the shortest stack do we tend to play closer to chip ev strategy ?

It is great to have the insights from a player of your caliber
Thx for the vid

Hello , welcome back and great video . Watched the hand few weeks earlier and I was quite impressed by both plays especially the checkback river from Jason Koon.

I had a more general question concerning my understanding of ICM , considering it is an imperfect model for a lot of reasons and the most important in my opinion is that ICM assumes that the tournament ends right after the hand. So I guess it will tend to generally tighten too much the ranges.
If ICM does not consider future, are those ICM results so valuable ?

Thx for your content .

Comment | Cassoulet commented on R

Alright before your answer , I was looking informations about it and a forum user came out with a formula .
So its not to calculate R but it is to calculate how much Equity we need to realize to make our hand profitable : Equity / pot odds.

I am not much a math guy, I really have no clue if this is a good formula , does it make sense to you?

Comment | Cassoulet commented on R

Hello nice vid ,
you showed us the formula to calculate R Post flop on a certain street , is there a formula to calculate R Preflop ? Or to calculate how much Equity we need to realize with a certain hand to make it profitable against a certain range?

Jan. 30, 2020 | 9:04 p.m.

07:45 I get that JJ is in the big bet for IP because its unblock the top of the calling range. But why QT is in the small bet ? Only because it blocks AT? That surprises me a little because QT also blocks a lot of OOP offsuit folding range so I guess OOP ends up calling more when IP bet QT.
