I am a 100/200nl reg and looking for a coach (preferably beating 500nl +)
I don't really know where to start looking and wondering if anyone had any recommendations / offer coaching themselves and can share them with me that would be much appreciated

I feel like it has to be 6x or some crazy KJo bluff
Also havent posted a hand in a while so that probably makes no sense

I dont know if im allowed to post about staking ITT or on this site so if im not I apologize in advance :)
So, me and a friend of mine are starting up a stable together and we are looking for a few players who would like to play under a stake offered by us.
A couple of things we are looking for
1) Would preferably be NHLE or PLO cash since these are the games we are most well versed in
2) Committed players who already have experience of low/small stakes (mainly 10-50nl)
3) People willing to put in volume (IE we dont really want to invest into someone who is only going to achieve 20k hands a month)
4) Most contracts will be long term nature. We dont want to invest time and knowledge into someone who is looking for 1/2 months of financing then leaving.
If all these things sound good to you and you are interested please post in this thread or PM me so we can talk through PMs or Skype etc.
Why take the stake? Risk free financing is one and in addition to that we have a lot of experience in PLO and NLHE so the opportunity to learn would be immense.

Just wondering if anyone tells me how they deal with auto-pilot. At this moment in time I feel like it is the biggest leak in my game.
I know I can crush where im playing if im playing well and concentrating fully. Which will usually be for the first hour then I will just go into full auto pilot mode and end up looking at my results 3 hours in and being down a load like wait where the F did that come from. When I know its coming from like missed cbets, or missed 3bs or having to fold coz i didnt follow the action properly.
Just wondering if anyone has any specific ways to deal with such an issue or any books etc

Based on the fact you said you struggle in 3b pots when you arent the aggressor, i would fold pre or 4b as you know you're not gonna be comfortable calling and both 4b'ing and folding are fine here
I assume we jam river which i think is ok, obviously hes balanced but generally i would assume people check JJ/QQ and missed AQs here.
Although i probably wouldnt float with no real equity bar backdoor broadway, id be more inclined if he cbet gives up alot and we had like a BDFD aswell

Check flop is good, boards terrible for AK betting turn w/Ad is fine and rivers are a wierd one once you figure out if your opponent is competent or not you can bluff/check most rivers
ie. if hes thinking he knows you probably cbet 8x and FD's but if hes a bit silly he will probs fold alot of stuff OTR thinking you have those if you double barrel (im not saying you should always cbet 8x and FDs here but i think at 10nl ppl will assume you do)

I would call turn here we've got kinda alot of outs vs everything and getting insane odds kinda sucks that we are OOP but i would peel then jam rivers when we get there and just x/f others
x/jamming is possible here but idk what else you would x/jam you are just gonna bet/bet/bet your overpairs and sets i imagine so it will look like a desperate draw trying exactly what it is
Nov. 18, 2014 | 1:18 p.m.
I mean i would of just 5b jammed anyway preflop think it saves alot of trouble here, however i think if we peel this 4b id be tempted to just jam over cbet OTF we can get value from worse and realize our equity vs him and save ourselves from getting into spots like this
Feels like hes really nutted here, i would probably fold river which feels horrible considering we had KK pre ha

At this point his cbet OOP was 8/9 (88%) so his check is a little wierd
His river 2b is 1/4 (25%) and it wasnt a x/r
Weird one, thoughts :)

I assume we x all these streets before player 6 bets since we were OOP, i think if you are gonna check flop here you have to x/c down with the top pair we are balancing with i guess :)
You could also bet bet x/c here if you expect him to bet missed draws but i think x/c x/c x/r is like the worst line you could take here since you are bluffing with the best hand alot of the time. And dont really fold out a better hand by check raising

I would play your hand exactly the same way, i dont think i like calling 22-55 we just fold so many flops, although vs a fish you can probably argue it since we will be getting exploited less and facing less bets, while getting more value from our sets when we hit them. So vs fish 22-55 is probably ok to peel but vs regs i wouldnt get into the habit of doing so
Nov. 6, 2014 | 3:50 p.m.
I think betting turn bigger would be much better. I think you can argue both x/b and betting here but i think x/b is better, he could peel some Axdd hands that wont fold and AK aswell. Although betting would probably fold out some Kx hands and thats about it really and we may somehow sometimes have some SDV beating some diamond draws but thats unlikely.
I think overbetting would be bad here as if he is capped why would we overbet for value into a capped range, this is 10nl so i dont think you can OB into his capped range with the hope of levelling him. So i guess at 10nl it might not be a bad idea to OB but it would be a bad habit to get into in this spot imo and i still dont think he would fold like AQdd and AJdd to the OB anyway.

Hi, really enjoyed your story and the video in general. The format to the video was really good it wasnt just a full video of one thing, doing a short presentation then some live HH review was really good.
Have you got any recommendations of where to start learning GTO properly. (Ie any particular articles or videos you watched/read)
Also where is a good place to start in terms of constructing GTO ranges postflop, is it something you did yourself by looking at boards you struggled on and constructing ranges on them or is it something you discussed with your coach?

The Ac is out there and if he has a worse flush then we have 8 outs which is roughly 14% which is never a good spot to be in. Turn is defo a fold w/out reads he could have 2p's and even if you give him AxQc into his range i still imagine (w/o stoving) that we are way behind here

1. Checking back for some balance is nice some of the time but most of the time esp. at 20nl i would go ahead and bet here as you will get a lot of folds when he misses, your hand can withstand a check raise and there are plenty of good turns to double barrel
2. You would probably play a Jx exactly like this if you x/b the flop called turn and you would bet river so its not hard to rep Jx or a hand like 99/TT, betting could fold out 6x and all A highs that beat you and maybe some random 22-55 he decided to play like this

at full ring this is the easiest turn fold of your life.
fwiw i would fold this board and this line at 6m too

If you have a read that he stabs when you check then i guess the x/c OTF is ok, i would just prefer betting flop as we can make him fold a lot of stuff with equity, get called by worse and we can see alot of good turn cards (just fyi its not his cbet stat you are looking at here since he was not PFR)
as played fold river seems good
June 23, 2014 | 10:55 a.m.
Thats true, you think we ever call a flush here?
June 7, 2014 | 2:56 p.m.
if you think he 4b's light alot you can do both, 5b jamming wins the pot a good amount of the time if he does and has some equity when called anyway.
I think you have to assume hes going to barrel off w/ worse on Qxx and Axx boards if we call the 4b and you can outplay him post as we cant just continue when he hit as we are probably losing money doing so. But at 25nl i think regs will just give up when they miss in 4b pots and barrel w/ the nuts so its weird to call w/ AQ since we are never happy :)
so w/out better reads id probably jam (if he has a highish 4b)
You can also fold ....
