This video style is entertaining af and quite eye opening how population range leaks can completely shift your strategy in one way or the other. I don't have the guts or knowledge to go that extreme.

I always have to laugh how you punish the bet slider just picking your rough overbet size. Keep it up!

This is dope! Welcome Brian :)

Hey Holonomy! A new Sauce video will be released either later this week or early next week. Sorry for missing your post here.

I assume that the smaller sizing choice could source from two things:

  • Defendor has the nut advantage (having more 66/55/65s)
  • Defendor doesn't have many weak pair hands (apart from pocket pairs) and himself has a high overcard density that we can target well with a small bet size

Note that our checking frequency reaches 80% on 765 2-tone as now the defendor has an additional straight that we don't have and even a range check on 876s where there are two potential straights.

Of course this could change in low stakes sims where quite some pocket pairs and suited connectors get folded because of the rake impact.

The main difference to a SRP where those wet textures favor us sizing up could be that in this case the BB defendor has a higher density of weak pairs and low gutshots / str8 draws that we want to target with some of our stronger regions like our overpair advantage. But I'm not even sure 865s is a perfect single raised pot candidate to size up that much either just because it's that bad.

(But honestly I'm just trying to make sense of this, so these are just some thoughts not real firm wisdom)

That's the CO response to a flop check by the 3bettor right?

Great conceptual / exploratory solver video on a spot that's so rarely studied. I had the pleasure of watching this video prior to it being released on the site and already found myself referring back to your video numerous times when facing these spots at the tables and it definitely is helpful! I hope other members will feel the same :)

Sept. 14, 2021 | 10:11 a.m.

Looking forward to this a lot. I'm sure you can do it! Let's go

Tyler Forrester released a video on this in 2018 where he explored the differences and if I'm not mistaken came to the conclusion that postflop the rake does not have large impacts on our strategies when it comes to bluffing, value betting and so on. It has impacts on our winnings of course (which likely is why it does have a considerable effect preflop) but apparently our strategy doesn't shift a lot postflop.

Hey seuny!

That's for sure an interesting topic and I was quite confident that we had some videos on this topic, so I ran a quick search. I hope that you will find some of the content valuable to advance your HUD skills. Of course if anyone else has a good video in mind, please share!

MTT focus:

HUD Basics (Owen Shiels)
HUD Design (Ryan Martin)
Building Your HUD (Lucas Greenwood)
Effective Hud Use (Lucas Greenwood)
Setting Up an MTT HUD in PT4 (Jeremy Menard)

Cash game focus:
Solving the Mytery: Juan's HUD (Juan Pastor)
Exploiting Players Using a HUD (Mark lammers)
Stats: Making Better Use of Your HUD (James Hudson)
What Makes a Good Heads Up HUD? (Vincent V)

On top of that I could imagine that the wider topic of Database Analysis and tracking your play could be helpful to understand stats as well:

Using Tracking Software to Analyze Your Game (Vlada Stojanovic)

In the NLHE -> Learning Paths there is a dedicated category for Database Review where you can find 10 more videos on this topic.

Let us know if any of those videos were particularly helpful in your quest!

Hey scottomatic sorry that you didn't get any feedback here. It's great if you are able to start establishing this list for yourself as you go forward and I think that this will definitely be valuable for your study process.

We are currently working on a bigger project that will hopefully give you exactly what you're looking for as soon as the update is ready to go live! It will still take a little bit of time but we are very optimistic that it will support all members fundamentally in their study experience.

Welcome Max, great to have you on the team!

Nice video Ivan! It's great to see some MTT live play content in the Essential mix :)

July 17, 2021 | 11:19 p.m.

oh yea wow for sure I didn't meant an exhaustive breakdown but potentially just a look at 5-10 representative boards to get some very rough heuristics :)

Welcome to the team Shaun! The first RIO coach who has more RIO points than me right upon becoming a coach! ;)

July 15, 2021 | 5:51 p.m.

Welcome aboard Shaun and great break down of a spot where it feels like many players are just guessing what to do or simplify to range checking. Especially great that you're sharing those valuable files for further studies I'm sure this will save a lot of members tons of work.

I think a great follow up could be to look at the value thresholds for betting and also for where to pull our bluffs from for some representative categories of boards? But that's just my first thought.

Comment | Eldora commented on How much books cost?

poker_bro sorry for missing getting back to you here. Interesting question, we haven't though about that before. I've reached out to you via PM :)

July 2, 2021 | 10:01 a.m.

Hey guys!

I ran into this spot yesterday and find myself still unsure if I screwed this up. I open UTG and get flatted by BTN, SB, BB.

BTN is a recreational who flats wide ranges, I have notes on him flatting Q9s in SB vs EP earlier, from SB he regularly flatted JTo, QTo vs random positions. Postflop I don't have strong reads on him.

Seat 1: SB (€76.35 in chips)
Seat 2: BB (€50 in chips)
Seat 3: HERO (€148.71 in chips)
Seat 4: HJ (€56.07 in chips)
Seat 5: CO (€117.67 in chips)
Seat 6: BTN (€50 in chips)
* HOLE CARDS *

Dealt to HERO [Jc Js]
HERO: raises €0.75 to €1.25
HJ: folds
CO: folds
BTN: calls €1.25
SB: calls €1
BB: calls €0.75
FLOP [5c 5d 9s]
SB: checks
BB: checks
HERO: bets €1.75
BTN: calls €1.75
SB: calls €1.75
BB: folds
TURN [5c 5d 9s] [4c]
SB: checks
HERO: bets €6.95
BTN: raises €11.55 to €18.50
SB: folds
HERO: raises €127.21 to €145.71 and is all-in
BTN: calls €28.50 and is all-in

Especially with his presumably wide range BTN is certainly able to hold 54s, 65s, A5s here imo. But based on my notes I also have T9s - A9s in his range.

Uncertainty 1: What about the turn double barrel? I figured that if BB was still in the hand I would likely have not doubled here given he has way more combos of 5x but being up against BTN & SB I felt safe betting again.

Uncertainty 2: Facing his turn raise I saw a decent chance that he could still hold some strong 9x like A9s/K9s as well as TT which made me consider and follow through with the shove. I could see him calling off with some of those hands if not always.

But is calling and accepting a check/check vs some of the hands we beat on the river a better line and give him a chance to bluff some of his missed FDs and potentially even fold on a flush completing card?

Vs this examplary range where the combos of J9s, T9s, 87s, 76s are only the cc combos we have 52% equity.

Would strongly appreciate your thoughts on this spot!
