I’m working my way through from the ground up, as course progresses concepts do get more complex and not only that I find myself questioning what I have actually internalised. Not only that but the sheer amount of info and other sources can be overwhelming when it come’s to learning this game.
Instead of finishing the course I though of why not have a basic enough strategy that will prevent me from getting in trouble while fully going into depth on topics in a logical order. My action plan is something like this.
Buying pre flop ranges from Peter Clarke’s site, as I was using the grinders manuals examples, and then also updated and incomplete once’s from the ftgu course but both do not cover everything. I’d rather master something instead of having blank spots or making incorrect ones myself. I think this is an area that just needs done correctly and my options are his site ranges, upswings ranges (prices are around the same) or some people recommended gtowizard, if you make a free account, but their ranges make no sense to me.
Getting an essential membership and truly focusing on an area, do you recommend the paths on this site? For example the order? Preflop to 3betting then 4betting, does it make logical sense to learn in this order? Or what do you recommend?
I’m playing about 1000 hands a day zoom 10nl. Marking problem hands and posting 2-3 a day and doing my best to identify where I spaz out. Any other habits you recommend?
This is my go to strategy when I don’t know what’s a going on post flop..
- Bet hands you want to get called or are in danger of being out-drawn
- Check/call hands that are good but can't really get called by worse if you bet
- Use draws to bluff
- Anything else is check/fold
- Make sure you re-evaluate your hand on each street

Opponent is a regular looking unknown.
Question: Was this a fold/jam pre? Is there a sizing you would fold to on the flop? What would be your ideal line?
Are we going to have any adaptations due to this being 10nl zoom and population reads? What's the process of getting population reads?

What is the best way of creating mixed ranges? Is one expected to go on on to poker stove and make our own or are their defaults? Are their any recommended videos or series on the practicalities on using such tools for this purpose?
How do I decide whether to call or 3-bet my cards that are marked as mixed? Do I set like a randomiser for 50/50?
At what kind of sample size should we be looking to change to a polar or linear strategy?
