great note about the F3B stat RunItTw1ce I've been there before wondering why everyone's f3b is so high ;)

emsterdad full name of the PT4 stat that you're likely want to swap this with is 'Fold to PF 3Bet After Raise'

Comment | Eldora commented on Vision GTO Trainer FAQ

Hey audtlr113! Yes, Vision does provide preflop solutions and you can even train your preflop skills directly in Vision using the Practice or Streak feature. From there, you can also narrow down the preflop ranges and explore them by using the powerful visualization and filtering tools.

Let me know if you still have any questions about this or anything else.

Hey IP.Man,
I'm sorry to hear about the issue that you're experiencing with the last STREAK section in the RFI segment. I've reached out to our developers about this and will leave you another update here as soon as this is fixed for your account.

July 20, 2022 | 5:10 p.m.

Hey Djoksi - I briefly wanted to let you know that Francesco Lacriola just launched a new series evolving around database reviews. The first part is already live on the site. This series came to live based on your suggestion! Just wanted to thank you again for dropping your thoughts here and I hope that you'll enjoy the video!

Hey emsterdad thaks for the suggestion! The first video that really jumps to mind for me here is a past video from Tyler Forrester titled Rake Effects at Small Stakes (Tyler Forrester).

The main take-away from the video is two-fold:
1) High-rake environments can have quite strong effects on optimal preflop strategies. This mostly includes things like:
- whether you should play a 3-bet only (no flatting) strategy from various positions, which applies to all poker rooms that don't rake pre-flop pots (GGPoker is the exception here).
- how wide you can optimally the BB versus different sizings
- which hands you can profitably defend versus a 3-bet (note that in higher rake environments that don't have pre-flop rake you will likely do more 4-betting instead of flatting vs 3bets)
- which hands you can profitably open-raise from different positions

In many videos you'll hear coaches say that they'll deviate their strategy and fold this hand because of the high rake environment and if you check out some preflop ranges at different rake environemnts you will quickly find what they mean by that. Suddenly 54s might not be a pure open from the button anymore whereas all 500z regs likely open that hand.

2) Post-flop strategy. And this is where it becomes interesting: Tyler dived into the question if our post-flop strategy should drastically deviate based on the rake (with the example of c-betting flops) and he found that the post-flop strategy was nearly not affected at all. While it is true that you will make fewer money even post-flop in high-rake environments the strategic changes are minimal - instead it mostly causes both players to make less money but it doesn't impact the overall strategy. Also note that in most solver solutions rake is already modeled accordingly. So when seeing a check-raising strategy in a solver output that accounts for rake - this will already calculate the amount of money that you will lose to the site. Tightening up even further would be an over-adjustment.

Based on these takeaways I would believe that it is highly risky to start value-betting less thinly or not check-raising as much just because you are in a higher rake environment.

There might still be a nice place for a video that evolves around the topic of rake and how to adjust to it based on different criteria but my initial assumption is that you will give up way more money by playing 'too tight of a style' just to avoid paying rake. So it might be ill-advised post-flop.

Note that this was mostly my personal take-away from Tyler's video and I might be wrong about some of the above!

Hey Run It Once community!

We're excited to invite you to our upcoming seminar series hosted by Run It Once Elite coach Francesco Lacriola. The first seminar will kick off TODAY, on Tuesday, July 5th at 2:00 PM EST (20:00 CET).

The theme of the seminar evolves around why you shouldn't attempt to mimick solver outputs. You'll learn how to efficiently analyze solver outputs to develop strong heuristics that you can use when playing. The focal point of today's session will be how range distribution influences our C-betting strategies.

Today's session is free to attend for all Basic members. You’ll be able to save your seat here (register).

July 5, 2022 | 4:29 p.m.

haha glad to hear that you are excited about your free month of Elite. You earned it! And I'm quite confident that the Elite membership might be able to help you create some Run It Once run good as well ;)

Comment | Eldora commented on I'm off

We're indeed sorry to hear that! What RunItTw1ce said is of course partly true and comments on older content can sometimes have difficulty to get engagement. Most coaches focus on catching up with comments on their newest videos but we are of course still happy to shoot our pros a quick message to specifically check out a new comment on an older video. Don't hesitate to shoot me a PM if you are specifically interested in one of your open comments and I'm happy to do that.

Apart from that, I'd also like to take the opportunity to invite you to our Discord community which you can join through this link:
https://discord.gg/D3B2Zq8jzP

We are currently putting quite a lot of effort to build up the community there and you might have a great chance of getting a reply to some of your questions in the channels there.

Of course we still hope that in the future you will have a better experience in the forum here as well.

We would hate to see you go because of that!

July 1, 2022 | 8:46 p.m.

Welcome Freenachos! Excited to see another long-term RIO member joining the coaching roster :)

Great first video too, highly recommend it!

June 23, 2022 | 7:33 p.m.

Hey AWF314 thanks for bringing up the suggestion! Nope, you did everything correctly we indeed have kept all mixed game content exclusive to Elite until now because we've never had an Essential coach for Mixed Games. But we'll make sure to discuss your suggestion in team and see if there's something that we can do!

However, I expect that for the most part it will likely remain a natural split that most Mixed Game content will be released at the Elite level.

June 15, 2022 | 3:19 p.m.

Hey emsterdad! This is a question that gets asked every now and then so it's a nice idea to discuss this in the forums.

My personal perception of this topic is that it should definitely not hurt you at all to train with Elite content while still playing micro stakes. Quite the contrary!

What I'm trying to express now might come across as downplaying some of the Essential content which you should be aware is not at all justified or my intention. We have very high trust in all of our Essential coaches, almost all of our Essential coaches are professional players themselves and you can feel confident that what you learn from Essential pros is getting you on the perfect track to beat your games.

But the difference between already highly-skilled Essential coaches and Elite coaches who compete at even higher stakes is that you can just expect an even deeper and well-refined skillset from an Elite coach. From that point of view, on average, when watching an Elite video you should be able to put even higher trust in the decisions and reasonings that the pro is showcasing. Therefore the training content might enlighten and improve your own understanding of Poker much quicker. Sometimes it's just that the very best players understand a spot even more deeply and when sharing this essence of knowledge with you it will benefit you tremendously.

But indeed, it works just the other way too! It is not uncommon at all that as a micro-stakes player you can learn MORE from watching Essential videos compared to one of the most advanced Elite videos. And that's exactly because our Essential coaches have in mind for whom they are creating content. They will repeat more basic fundamentals and spend time on explaining those, where an Elite coach could sometimes not even talk about that because he is focusing on finer nuanced decisions. In that sense, there is a chance that training with Essential content does a better job of fixing the biggest leaks in your game first.

I think eventually it comes down to the following:
- I firmly believe that training with Elite content as an ambitious micro-stakes player provides value that goes beyond just training with the Essential plan. Even if it's just picking up one or two statements from a high-stakes player who has a very advanced view on the game, these statements could thoroughly change the way how you think about this situation forever
- At the same time it is true that Essential training videos can do a better job of teaching the most important fundamentals in a more efficient way. You will likely find yourself lost in some Elite videos and compared to that the Essential content does a better job focusing on what's most important when starting out.

Most of the Essential content is played at NL100+ and while there are some videos on NL10/NL25/NL50 you will need to keep the pecularities of your player pool at NL10 in mind, even when training with Essential videos. So even for Essential videos you should always be willing to make adjustments compared to what you are seeing in the videos. But don't worry - when training you will learn exactly this process and there's content that teaches exactly those exploitative adjustments as well.

I don't think that the concern of picking up things in Elite videos that will not work at all at low-stakes is a valid concern in that regard. It's all about understanding and learning to thing through spots yourself.

The reason why I personally believe that for many micro stakes players, the Essential plan is still the right choice to start out is that you are getting lots of valuable content catered to your current situation at a very low price point. If the price point doesn't concern you and all that you care about is to improve your skills -> then I would recommend anyone who asks me to go with the Elite plan and mix content from both Essential and Elite coaches.
