Hi! Great video and key concepts are top!
Sound on its own is relatively speaking not that bad. And you have radio speakers voice ("colorful and low") but as such would almost need some proper recording and (post)editing-processing (which actually would be a good practice for all videos on RIO and would boost quality of complete RIO coaching site). But before all of that the first very important thing is pronunciation. Dont get me wrong please, I am not criticizing, on contrary as I said your voice is perfect so with little effort you would have the best sounding videos! I am just saying all of this this because a sound was mentioned in replies and you have superb "sound potential":) So, I know you don`t have time for that but anyhow, in case you want to try, I would recommend you to speak a bit slower with a bit more of a "mouth opening" - slightly exaggerated pronunciation. Good microphone-audio interface, acoustically treated room with proper level of signal recording is helping a lot too. And if you wish to go even a step further I can help you with post-production, at least once for a test would be fun:)

Hi, I am not sure if I am in the right place to post this thread but I would just like to ask is there any announcement of Phil (and others) streaming live on Twitch? I always miss out those "live TV shows" because I am not aware that they will be going on. So, how to get notifications, where to find out upfront for those events? Thank you in advance!

Sept. 23, 2019 | 7:46 a.m.

Hehe, o it is fine, I was sure that is the case and for everyone else this was clear all the time, but I sometimes complicate things too much and I am trying to going "deep" when there is really no need for that, but thanks, now I feel peace:PPP:))

Sept. 23, 2019 | 7:36 a.m.

Thank you very much, yeah I am quite clear on that strategy I am just a bit confused with word "(top) pair blocker" because we hold that top pair, so it is kind of a blocker but it is also our pair if you know what I mean, I am just not sure if "I like" that terminology:)

Sept. 21, 2019 | 4:37 a.m.

Hi, I would like to ask about a hand on 18:20 - right table; why do you recommend playing slower with "wraper" when you dont hold a (top) pair blocker (which to me is not quite a blocker at all, but that is for another discussion)? With what hands will then opponents calling you (especially when those cards do not threaten your straight on the future streets)? So you wish to push them off the hand or you just wish to have top pair to have more equity if your straight miss so "you may end up with 2 pairs" or so (but then why call it a blocker)? I apologize about my English, I hope I am understandable and questions dont sound too stupid.:P:)

Comment | ChipTracker commented on Tricky Turn Spots

Hi, what sample of hands is needed for PLO? For NLH is around 100K or is that changed over time too?:)

Sept. 15, 2019 | 7:04 a.m.

Oh, I am a bit late with this reply cuz I was quite long "offline" myself. So...I am selfishly sorry that you are ending coaching on RIO but for sure I wish you all the best and thank you very much! Ffs I will really miss you, I mostly watched your videos / content in PLO segment. I hope that our paths will happily cross in the future (not maybe so much on the tables you sitting on my left:P:)) Well done and again, wish you all the best!

Hi, nice video.I would like to ask why did you fold on 40:15 with AJsK2o to BTNs 3br? I dont know the player, so maybe he is very tight, but otherwise I think your hand was playable against BTNs agression? Thx in advance!

Sept. 5, 2019 | 10:52 a.m.

Any updates on this topic? Did RIO succeed in adding any new country to the player pool? Any announcements for the near future? Where/when to check periodically for this info?

Comment | ChipTracker commented on $200 PLO Live

Ye agreed, this time I was struggling too on which table Phil is commenting. Usually he was saying "top right or bottom left", but on this video session was more "here and there" and no highlighting (or mouse pointer, plus red table and card colors, btw I would prefer 2 tables, but no biggy:P:)) Overall, it was a bit harder to follow, but as usually content is good and enjoyable to watch, so thx Phil!:)

Hi, I am very happy to see RIO poker room starting to operate and I would kindly and strongly suggest that you submit license application to operate with Slovenian players ASAP too. Yes, geographically is a small country, but do not assume there is small number of poker players. Poker, especially online, is very active in Slovenia and if you check, Party Poker for instance, you will be surprised with a number / percentage of Slovenian players playing there. I believe it is quite worth for RIO to submit license application ASAP. Please, keep us posted with more detailed info on that subject, if possible. Thank you very much and good luck!

Ha, not many comments on this one. It seems Phil beat up that Bluechip guy so hard that the poor dude is still in "poker coma". Now RIO community feels sorry for Bluechip and all are boycotting this review. Fortunately a fresh, but very brave volunteer poped out; besztok came to offer himself as a new punching bag. Congrats man, that`s the spirit!
Phil do not hide, come out and show all your power!
Khm, khm...yeah, thank you, I am OK now, so...I just wanna say this is again really good tutorial video!:P:)

Yes, you will be able to download your played hands after 24 hours and than analyze your own game with other players names anonymous. At least I think that is the case, not 100% sure tho...

Nov. 30, 2018 | 7:11 a.m.

Man o man, I don`t dare to laugh but I would like to, because to me it sounds like you are joking?:) Anyhow that is actually what attracts watchers, you are potential streaming star! People would even pay to watch you just so they would feel better while standing in front of a mirror:PPP:))) Now I am kind of joking...ugliness is a human construct, (as it is most of similar shit "we invented"), you are not ugly, you are just less average than others, in a way you are more unique than vast majority of human population therefore you are one of the most beautiful people. Just our perception at the moment is influenced and biased, so not many people is capable to recognize that, but this will change at some point and in both cases you should stream, so please streaaaaaaaaam \o/. Maybe we should make a leaderboard of most ugly (<- beautiful) streamer and if I join the contest I might even win:P:))

Will RIO poker client work on Linux?

Oct. 29, 2018 | 3:23 p.m.

I would like to apply for a job position "Update manager" (or "Message bringer"). I would be writing and posting updates about RIO poker room:P:)

Oct. 8, 2018 | 9:10 p.m.

Very nice again and this tutorial video format with 2 tables on switch is perfect! PER-FECT!:)

Sept. 22, 2018 | 4:17 p.m.

...I just did, thank you!

Sept. 17, 2018 | 7:17 p.m.

I still get "alert message "Invite Invalid". May I somehow connect via my Discord application?

Sept. 17, 2018 | 5:45 p.m.

May I join as well? Btw above links does not work for me.

Sept. 17, 2018 | 12:45 p.m.

You will be able to get (download) your hand history after 24 hours to analyze your play and statistics, other player names will be anonymous.

Sept. 16, 2018 | 9:04 a.m.

Yes, I agree with you (Quido) on all of that, therefore I did not mention the software, which I believe too, will be great. But there are some, maybe a bit less obvious issues, which Here4Phil kind of stressed out and I believe they are important too, if we wish to get a big player pool.

Sept. 15, 2018 | 10:24 a.m.

But Here4Phil has some point(s). I don`t see that as trolling or berating. I believe we (mostly) are all wishing RIO all the best, so some comments are made out of fear for project to fail. IMHO in here should indeed be much much more "lively & active" as it is now, especially if RIO poker client will really open soon (now I even become a bit anxious when I see a word "soon":P). Revealing of some core decisions is quite slow and mysterious. It is important to catch the right time - moment and it was already missed few times, justified - no problem. But at this point, I believe, there should not be any much more waiting. It is time to release the beast and solve obstacles on the way.

Really great job as allways:) I am NL player but lately I play PLO too, it is fun! So I would have one question; I prefer to bet that turn on 45:20 most of the time in such a spot with such an opponent, (among other things the last chance to extract some value, the last spot to be called/payed from "this" player), is that move ok?

Sept. 11, 2018 | 4:17 p.m.

Hi:) I am just curious, so if it is not a secret I would kindly ask are you (RIO) writing this new poker client application (code) from scratch? How many programmers, developers do you have on this project and what programming languages do you use? I would just like to know how much work, time and ppl is needed for creating such a software? Thank you very much in advance!

Sept. 9, 2018 | 8:56 a.m.

Nice! Shuffle and deal:P:)

Sept. 5, 2018 | 7 p.m.

...I would not change the "Raise to" with just "Raise" because "Raise to" is more precise in it`s meaning but sure, this is not really big issue, either way is OK.
Different size of buttons are maybe not that bad idea either because players might differ action buttons more easily and faster (to me the "Fold" button should be slightly bigger then other buttons)?
I would maybe only suggest a slightly more obvious highlighting of a player who has to act next. But this is not of a that big importance either.
