Post | EditBay posted in NLHE: Love this exploit

Maybe you know this spot.

Absolutely print money on Ignition 1/2 zone when a short stacked player (very often half-stack) leads a flop like J73ss for half pot or so and I have top pair/top kicker or better. I just immediately jam. They almost always have a weak top pair and call off because of the draws available. An exploit so reliable I cash a pot like this almost once a session. My thinking is these are recreational players who take a shot at the "big game" but don't want to risk a full stack. They want to double-up and make more in one hand than they would playing .10/.25 for hours, so when they get top pair they start to fall in love with their hand, think the regulars might be trying to push them around, and panic call off because the time bank is expiring.

I don't think I've ever run into a draw or a set in these situations because this player type likes to play their draws passively and slow play/check raise their biggest hands.

Good luck out there.

Post | EditBay posted in Chatter: Poker Tracker Filter help

I'm new to building filters on Poker Tracker, and I'm getting stuck on something.

(These filters are for hands on Ignition, so I can see the hole cards. I play mostly 200z / 50z NLHE)

How do I filter for all hands / actions regardless of whether or not I am involved? I tried filtering for donk bets in 3b pots because I am curious what kind of ranges people have in those spots, but it seems to only give me results for hands where I took the action. I'd also like to filter for all donk bets but the same thing seems to happen.

Any help is appreciated

I feel like the last couple of weeks in general I have been gifted crazy punts and insanely light calls

May 10, 2024 | 1:14 a.m.

Maybe it's just when I've signed on but lately on Ignition it seems like the 200z game rarely has many players, when it used to have 50+ pretty regularly. Or at least enough to run with full tables. These days it seems like there are only 6-14 players a lot of the time. Is something up with Ignition that I missed the memo on that people are leaving? The 50NL game on the other hand looks more populated at all hours than it ever used to be. Trying to figure out what's up

Sorry, what's the name of the new software you are using? I tried listening a few times but couldn't quite make it out enough to find it using a google search.

Just rewatching this old video and laughing at you calling out the "$11 guy" as a nit. I wonder if he ever saw this

June 2, 2021 | 2:51 a.m.

Love the video as always. Did I miss if you said what the guy had in the KQ hand at 28:00 you were so curious about?

April 26, 2021 | 11:31 p.m.

When I run into tough spots where I'm making what feels like tight folds several times in a row like you did in this video I start feeling like I'm getting run over. It's a good reminder that sticking to your instincts and just playing one hand a time is always the best path

April 11, 2021 | 4:38 a.m.

Overall I like the video and the timing analysis. I too have noticed that tank 4 bets tend to lean heavily toward the stronger part of the range and snap 4 bets (and especially snap 4 bet jams) are very frequently AK.

That hand at 4:10 where the player led out on the Q1010 board--
This is somewhat common from weaker players at lower stakes on Ignition (which I think shares the same pool) and it is very frequently top pair in these multiway pots and almost never a nutted hand like a set or in this case a 10. When called these players will usually continue betting small on further streets and when raised they frequently give up if they have a weak kicker.

I've run this cycle many times and for me at least a winning run slowly leads to auto-pilot if I'm not careful. It's happened again and again. And auto-pilot is a poker player's, (or at least my) worst enemy--you absolutely have to maintain disciplined focus on every hand (by which I mean thinking through ranges) or you can easily slip into bad habits or tilt. And it only takes a handful of big mistakes that happen quickly with a lack of focus to turn an otherwise solid session into a big loser, especially as you move up in stakes and run into tougher players.

April 1, 2021 | 2:33 a.m.

What did that player end up having in the A6 monotone board hand?

I personally didn't mind seeing a lot of disciplined folding in this vid, I know it might be boring for better players than me, but watching your discipline in some spots reminded me how I can get too, for lack of a better term, emotionally attached to some hands.

Always love the vids

Just want to say that I absolutely love your videos and they alone have given full value to my membership on the site. After bouncing up and down for months I'm finally beating 50 zone on Ignition handily and I really credit it to the thought process you display on your videos. I was struggling because I was getting lazy with my actions or playing with too much emotion, but now I narrate my play in my head in your voice and it keeps me focused. I also have learned so much about bet sizing and sizing tells from you. Just bravo man

March 11, 2021 | 10:32 p.m.

Love the vid! Maybe at 27:30 solver likes the overcard draws better because we block the overcard continuing/raising range of opponent and unblock their pairs 6s - 9s that might fold?

March 10, 2021 | 6:48 p.m.

Ultra hot or ultra cold--I think this all the timel. Either the pool always has it and the worst possible runouts happen all day or everyone is an overcalling fish and I'm hitting gutters and flopping flushes. I know that's not true but it sure feels like it sometimes

March 7, 2021 | 8:33 p.m.

Absolutely love both the play and analysis. Really confirms some instincts in a way that makes me feel much more comfortable when I take this right over to my game. Thanks for the great vid

Oct. 8, 2020 | 6:54 p.m.

What do you introduce yourself as in the beginning of the video? I listened to it like five times and I can't figure it out

Feb. 28, 2020 | 8:43 p.m.

I really like this series, and hearing the different coaches' perspectives. How many more should we expect from this session? Was hoping for a couple more close spots

Feb. 20, 2020 | 10:32 p.m.

Really like this format and enjoyed the vid

In this situation, going to give a like before I even hit play. ;) Love your vids Tyler, absolutely my favorite

"This flop is...crazily shit" I laughed out loud and spilled a bit of my drink, because honestly could it be worse.

Nov. 22, 2019 | 4:27 a.m.

Love it; I'm still working on getting past this exact game and hearing your breakdown gave some insight. Thanks

Oct. 8, 2019 | 6:33 p.m.

I was watching like, man this hand seems super familiar. Like, I'm pretty sure I know what villain specifically has. I AM CLAIRVOYANT oh no wait this was just uploaded before

This series rules

Aug. 29, 2019 | 1:58 a.m.

What I'm saying is I could see myself punting off this money with low diamonds like 56--89 etc if I were villain and on tilt

Aug. 30, 2018 | 6:52 a.m.

Um, as a guy who plays these stakes and makes dumb decisions, this villain could have (in addition to some better value hands), any two diamonds and just bluffed that river thinking that the board favored his range.

Aug. 30, 2018 | 6:46 a.m.

Tyler is a billion times better player than me so whatever he said is the gospel but my first thought was that I wouldn't have picked that river to bluff shove since it counterfeits our most likely two pair we would have raised for value on the flop. When he calls the turn it seems face up that he has a strong J (or better), which would block the more unlikely J6 and J7 combos. Which leaves us representing almost solely 89 and maybe the sets but I would have 3b 77 at least. A call with a J is maybe questionable even still but maybe he had a read on your bluffing tendencies

Aug. 25, 2018 | 3:01 a.m.

Always love it when you put out a new vid. I've modeled a lot of my play on your style.

I wonder in spots like around 23:20 where you have the 10s and you KNOW he is baiting you with a K all day with that small sizing, and you are telling yourself you should fold, if you should just fold. I have seen you make the call in spots like this in so many videos and I'm thinking that over the long-term listening to your gut in these kinds of spots will be a money maker, don't you think? Just exploitatively, regardless of what the math is telling you?

July 15, 2018 | 10:12 p.m.

I'm a guy who periodically upgrades to Elite for a month's worth of value, then returns to Essential. I like the freedom of doing that from time to time without commitment. I hope that will stay the same. I could never commit to Elite for more than a month at a time but have really gotten value from the times I have upgraded.

July 30, 2017 | 2:45 a.m.

Hey so first hand right off the bat, flop top set, cbet bc we cbet 100% on this board, he folds. You say "I don't really like this" before you bet and neither do I when I do it but then I always end up doing it. And what do you know, villain folds. My instinct to say "I don't really like this" leaves me to believe we can check this back occasionally simply because it is an obvious deviation from gto and we are more likely to get paid. Even if it raises the hairs on the neck of some villains to check back an obvious cbet, by capping our range I think we can get more value from marginal hands than we would from some weak floats that can't continue on the turn. Pure exploit and rarely until you think people are catching up to it and I think it would take a while. Maybe I'm wrong but I'm willing to try it

June 25, 2017 | 11:06 a.m.

Hey Era7er, love your vids, I like your playing style more than about any of the pros on here, so exploitative--you never talk yourself into a "standard" call against a nitty opponent which is a leak of mine and I see the pros on here do it a lot too. I learn a lot and you crack me up with that dry humor, it makes it entertaining. Straight flush "which should win us the pot here I think most of the time" I actually laughed out loud. So thanks
