Yea I have the same feeling sometimes ;) I'll expect that there will always be some dark power point vids as well of course, so your feedback is certainly noted.

July 22, 2020 | 6:11 a.m.

Hey ralphcig789 , I will definitely do so as soon as the call is up. We are currently putting the finishing touches on this new site section. Stay tuned!

July 21, 2020 | 10:58 a.m.

Hey RunItTw1ce thx for the feedback. I personally mostly prefer dark modes in everything as well, even regardless of whether it's in the morning or throughout the day. However, lots of people have exactly the opposite preference and can't stand dark designs, specifically when watching videos on an ipad or other mobile devices outside of the house. Coaches have a bright and a dark theme to choose from and with whatever choice I'm quite sure some will be more happy / unhappy.

On a general note I can recommend Iris from iristech.co to control your screens very effectively. Of course a white video will still be white but it could help reducing the brightness for your eyes in some situations like early in the morning or late at night. I think there might be also free versions for this out there.

The coursor problem was on our end but this shouldn't happen going forward. Sorry about the inconvenience.

July 21, 2020 | 7:29 a.m.

Thanks for pointing out the mouse cursor issue. This mistake is on our end but we're working with our editors so that this shouldn't be a problem in the future.

July 21, 2020 | 7:14 a.m.

radtupperware we are still working on this as I'm typing this but the completed calls should be available shortly for all Elite members in a new section of the site.

July 18, 2020 | 10:50 a.m.

July 17, 2020 | 6:56 p.m.

July 17, 2020 | 8:55 a.m.

I really enjoyed the approach you took with this video and loved the focus that you laid on later street play. I certainly find myself falling into the trap to just focus on finding the right combos when studying check-raising while the mistakes I'm likely to make on later streets might be much more extreme. Quite eye-opening video for me :)

Comment | Eldora commented on gto+ vs pio

GTO+ certainly is very powerful and I can assure you that after getting used to the interface you should not have any real downside just because most of our coaches here on Run It Once use PIO. PIO was first-to-market by far and therefore it's only natural that almost all pros who have been making lots of money from poker since many years are utilizing PIO and of course PIO is still hot and might also have some cool additions GTO+ doesn't (I'm not sure on this though).

This might depend on the definition of scripting and it could easily be that PIO is more powerful for scripting but in GTO+ you can definitely run sims across an unlimited amount of boards over night/when away from your comp. You can even set maximum time limits when a solve should give up etc. So it's possible to work on aggregated reports with GTO+ too.

A recent addition of GTO+ even includes a practice mode where you can quizz yourself for one specific sim or multiple sims and benchmark your play against GTO. For example, this allows you to run a 3bet pot situation across 20 boards and train your decisions after making studying more fun. I don't think PIO has a feature like this yet.

To be fair, I mostly used GTO+ myself because it was my first solver and I got used to it so as said there might be some cool PIO stuff that's more intuitive than in GTO+. PIO is still top notch. But if the money gap matters I would lean towards GTO+.

July 15, 2020 | 8:03 a.m.

I'd also tend to value bet here as the 5d river seems pretty safe. And overall even a player with this stats might not have many 2pair on this board texture despite 98 which should allow us to go for the 'thinner' value here. On most spades we probably have to check though? Maybe a Tc makes it closer already too given this completes more 2pair combos.

July 15, 2020 | 7:51 a.m.

Damn some fancy guests lately for a Hero's Journey. Way to go!

July 14, 2020 | 6:53 a.m.

Welcome Tariq! Already looking forward to check out your first video!

Comment | Eldora commented on The Best NLHE Coaches

pabernathy from the top of my head and when it comes to recording videos at these stakes I'd recommend you to check out these guys for regular videos on stakes even higher than NL500:

Kevin Rabichow
Krzysztof Slaski
Patrick Cronin
Tyler Forrester
Elías Gutierrez
Juan Pastor

Feedback noted ;) I think we can improve that in the next vid

Comment | Eldora commented on COVID Cbetting Course

To the best of my knowledge this has nothing to do with Qing or his course specifically which is also why the comments of this kind will be flagged. It's a resentment towards Poker in general I believe. But let's rather not continue the discussion here ;)

June 13, 2020 | 2:28 p.m.

Comment | Eldora commented on Video suggestion

For EV calculations during a hand you can readily extend your video search to general NLHE too unless you're specifically interested in ICM which is another topic then. The general EV calcs for a hand in MTT and NLHE cash shouldn't differ from the theoretical point.

Apotheosis has two fantastic videos on this concept:
EV Calculations (Apotheosis)
Multi-Street EV Calculations (Apotheosis)
His video Introduction to Poker Fundamentals might also be of great use here.

Tom Coldwell similarly covers this topic:
Calculating EV (Tom Coldwell)

Apart from that and on a slightly more general level I can also highly praise Steve Paul's Math You Should Know series. Here he covers the theory background on Combinatorics, Game Theory and Variance.

Comment | Eldora commented on Video suggestion

Hey ralphcig789!
With regards to different structures / variations of MTTs here are some suggestions.
If you want to learn more about how PKOs differ from the traditional freezeout format I'm sure checking out Pedro Madeira's series on this subject will help you:
Comparing Ranges - Freezeout vs. PKO (part 1-3) (Pedro Madeira)
If you're specifically interested in PKOs then browsing Pedro's library will hand you much more content on PKO and how to tackle the different situation there: from opening ranges / jamming ranges / postflop play almost everything comes up in his multiple live play PKO series.
Specifically for ICM investigations of Bounty tournaments Owen Shiels also has you covered:
ICM Bounty Investigations (Owen Shiels)

You can also find all this comfortably in one place in the Learnin Paths -> MTT -> PKOs

In Owen's video MTT Game Selection Owen also talks quite a bit about different MTT formats / player pools where I could imagine you can find some useful information.

Owen further has a series on a $11 Rebuy event where I'm sure he goes over some strategic adjustments in critical situations or even a lower stake version with a focus on exploiting ($5 Rebuy: Lots of Donks). Similarly, Jeremy Menard discusses a $200 Rebuy event here in a 3-part series.

Our Elite coaches Dylan Linde and Sam Grafton also each have videos on Rebuy events:
6-Max $100 Rebuy (Dylan Linde)
$109 Rebuy (Sam Grafton)

I think it's a great idea to maybe get a comprehensive video on general strategy adjustments in the future to summarize the most important things but I hope that the selection above will already be valuable to you for adjusting your strategy.

Comment | Eldora commented on Off table studies

Hey andrestc yea I think that's a very solid study process for studying shove-call situations and you looked at a lot of the most important things here to land at reasonable ranges. Now I'm not an MTT player so I can't comment on the actual ranges although they seem reasonable to me and I also suspected that 55 will not be a call here. As you can see even if you already knew that 55 wasn't a call then you still got lots of value from this hand just based on your good studying approach for the hand.

One additional factor I'd certainly encorporate into my decision at this stage of the MTT is the ICM that might have a huge impact on the actual ranges. While with you being a shorter stack the ICM pressure for you not being incredibly large, it might still have some effect and result in the open-jammer doing so a bit tighter and also wants you to call tigher even disregarding possible range changes for the open-jammer.

Owen Shiels also has a great series on 'How to Study' different MTT specific skills in a 5-part series in the Essential subscription.

June 4, 2020 | 7:39 a.m.

Btw Ryan Martin I love your in depth discussions but please stop letting your time banks consistently run that low again before you make your decision just because you're still giving your reasons. You know how frightening this is as a viewer? More adrenalin than watching a horror movie

June 2, 2020 | 8:24 a.m.

It's just incredible how much SNG strategy has changed / advanced over the last 10 years (surprise :D). While I haven't played any recently myself I found this highly interesting and would definitely like to see future installments. And getting the RIO community ready to crush on RIO Poker SNGs soon seems like a very nice thing :)

Comment | Eldora commented on Video suggestion

Hey ralphcig789! I can recommend you to check out this videos series where one of our coaches reviews Aram Zobian's final stages of the WSOP Main Event with Aram joining the video:
WSOP Main Event Hand Review w/ Aram Zobian
WSOP Main Event Hand Review w/ Aram Zobian (part 2)

Here's another session where an interactive coaching session is presented with the student on the video.

You can also filter for 'MTT' and 'ProView' in the video library and find a vast selection of Leakfinder videos here:
Leakfinder Filter
Whilst most of them are not with the student joining, I believe that for some of them the student joined the session too.

I hope that you find some valuable content in these and we're happy to keep these types of videos coming so thanks for your suggestion!

Yea this was an awesome experience report of a coaching session. Chapeau Qing Yang ;) I'm not surprised that you rock at private coaching too

Comment | Eldora commented on COVID Cbetting Course

BigDickPlaya I can't believe that you don't notice how inappropriate leading this discussion in this thread is at this moment which is why most of it has been removed (and will be going forward). There's some places where you can share your thoughts on this but please stop spamming your opinion all over the forum in different threads repeating the same arguments over and over again.
