Thanks for sharing man 🥰
Motivational as fuck to see how even a crusher like you had downs and still kinda struggles in some parts of the game.

Hey Nuno, just sent you a PM ;)
Basically would like to know if there is an offer in the form of a "masterclass" with just the content that the student could follow at his own pace and when he wants to, as it would suit me way more.

Hey man. I already have all the screenshots of my monker ranges, what I need is a software that would allow me to display them and navigate in a more easy way than having it in a folder

Hey guys, pretty much everything is in the title. Right now I just use excel to show my preflop ranges when I play cash games, but it's quite shitty and I'd like something more easy to use. Does any software like that exist?

Thank you :)

What the fuck dude, that is insane in such a reg-heavy environment. Congrats!

Side question: I play a highly exploitative strategy in both anonymous and known pools. I've been having pretty good results in anon, but in known it's a whole different story. I put a decent amount of work in understanding the equilibrium play to make my strategy more resilient, but it seems that results don't follow through in known pools. Any advice about which are the biggest adjustments you can make as an exploitative player diving in a known pool? Like having very solid reads on every oponent, study them individually a lot? Or more into looking at the equilibrium sizings/frequencies/range composition and trying to mimic them? Ty :)

Nice try, Cory. Seems that everyone is on a downswing :(

Playing against a massively unbalanced field requires massively unbalanced adjustments that are gonna massively print :D

bc turning hands with showdown value into bluffs requires that EV (bet and make better ahnds fold) > EV (check and win a lot of the times at shwodown). In order to make that EV of bluffing higher and OOP's bottom of range hands indifferent between bluffing and checking, IP has to overfold. Otherwise OOP couldn't have a bluffing range since he would prefer to check his bottom of range and get to showdown with it.

Woohoo GL mr crusher!

Hey man, outstanding results, I've always wondered why you were not moving up though? Or playing softer games on other sites, the only upside of playing zoom on starts is volume

Cool thread! keep going :)

Hi Ben, thanks for doing this!

I am pro since a few months and I have been questioning myself about something. Does the need for competition come from a balanced place? I have the opportunity to play fishy games at 1Knl by being selective, but I sometimes find myself thinking "I could get to the top and battle the best on PS NL5k+ at some point", and end up going for a rush of useless PIO studying, + battling top regs instead of spending this time making money vs fish or bad regs with good exploits.
I feel like my competitive desire is a way to feed my ego, but I'm not quite sure about that. In that case it's a bad thing to me.
I'd be really interested to have your take on it, especially with your nosebleed experience :) ty

Hey man, all my respect for taking that decision. Where do you live? And do you have any idea what you're gonna do next?

Nov. 16, 2019 | 2:34 a.m.

Haha what's the result with square size proportionnal to weight? Quite normal if you 3bet 97s sometimes :)

GL for your journey man. If I can give you 2 cents, the number one mistake people make when changing habits is trying to change too much things at the same time. It has very big chance leading you to failure, and giving up. Go little by little :)

Well said bro fuck pokerstars

Hey man, great blog, but those pictures look really small, try to use gyazo :)

Oct. 4, 2019 | 2:44 a.m.

you should call your whole range against a fish here (and raise nuts indeed)

Hey man, nice video again! I have many questions :D

I saw that you developped a limping range UTG, I have some regulars doing that in my games from sometimes all positions and I don't know how to counter that, or even to build this kind of strategy. I can't find any video about this subject on RIO. Do you have any recomendations?
Also, how do you manage building exploits after you limp preflop, since this spot doesn't show up often, you may lack data on it?

At 24:51, with 43ss when you re-jam. Is this specific to the texture of the flop, and/or only appliable in this formation (BB vs SB?), only reg profile?


Sept. 10, 2019 | 10:09 p.m.

Thanks a lot man! I've been working on that the last few months and I can feel it is getting better. Meditation helps a lot. I'll take any book one can recommend. Thanks a lot! :)

Feb. 22, 2019 | 11:03 p.m.

Basically any stats are worth studying. Favor a "broad to narrow" perspective seeing 1st the overall line trends, then by profile, by texture, etc.

S0lidSnaKe If you are the guy I am thinking about playing on, I would advice you to start working both on your technical and mental game instead of spitting your anger on someone who is very likely to have a much higher bb/100 than yours. I've seen some of victor's graphs, and I've seen the way you play poker. Victor's thought process is infinitely more valuable than a random mediocre small stakes player spreading his anger on a well-intentionned guy. If you are not mature enough to realize this, please don't write again on this forum.

Btw in order to make this comment usefull I'll give my 2 cents about this hand:

I like 3barrels, but not with such a ridiculous sizing. Blockers are much more needed as you highen up your sizing, because you will earn a margin gain of the blockers effect as you highen up your sizing.
Keep in mind that bluffing should always be an exploitative play though. If a bluff is -EV, there is absolutely no reason to bet, even for the sake of "balance".
The population tends to overfold to 3barrels, expecially regs, that's why I like the river bet though.

Hey, no info on BB. Thanks for the advice! :)
