Hey RunItTw1ce sorry for missing your post, I just stumbled over this. The reason for the issue of adjustable speed not working on android might be that android phones use the built-in browser player of whichever browser you use to access runitonce.com

To my knowledge this unfortunately currently makes it impossible to use the speed feature you normally can see on our custom player on other devices. If anyone from the community has found a way to make this work on android phones we of course would love to hear about it.

Comment | Eldora commented on Range Merging

Good luck with your journey looking forward for updates.

Regarding the hand I think you're still strong enough on the river to go for a bigger bet. In a non 3bet pot villain's range still has very many offsuit combos and since the flop only offered a backdoor flushdraw and not a full fd it should be much more infrequent for villain to have made a flush. So it feels like you lost value here by going for a river block. I think his range is Tx heavy here and I would focus on targeting that part of his range.

I doubt this is the reason because GTO+ auto-reminds when you forget to do so but: have you made sure to 'build the tree' before running solver?

Else the missing default setting and then leaving out raise sizes could be a problem. I'm not sure because I always have default bet size active but also seems unlikely that this is the issue.

You're probably already aware that the numbers you will see in a tracker are not really considering ranges and combos and don't construct their numbers according to the tracked ranges and then transforming these ranges into percentages.

Instead they really only work with observed frequencies. This still makes your question relevant and it always depends on how the exact stat is built. But usually and in the example you made a 4bet stat will observe how often an opponent 4bet when he gets the chance to do so. For example if an opponent shows a 4bet stat of 25% this doesn't mean he's really 4betting 25% of his range but simply that in all observed cases where he had the chance to 4bet he did so 25% of the time. With a big enough sample size this should translates to example a) you made - i.e. 4betting 9% of the instances when he was 3bet and because getting 3bet requires open raising first (at least in this HU example) it should be 9% of his opening range and not of his complete range

Comment | Eldora commented on NL5 AKo in 4betpot

I don‘t think isnurgeld stating he has some A4s and KTs here automatically means that he is 4betting so wide that he loses his range advantage on this extremely dry board. Of course if he does indeed 4bet all KTs / KJs then it gets closer

Generally and with a normal 4betting range the board structure has some advantage in that A2s-A5s are some of our frequent 4bet bluffs here OOP and thus giving us some trips and gutshot + bdfd equity with our bluffs. So I would see our range advantage as the 4bettor as strong enough to bet at high frequency with small sizing here and I would say AK can fit into this as thin value.

On the turn though I don‘t see any reason to continue betting with our hand and even if we would have some small frequency of KTs that‘s not an argument to continue barreling because I see a T more often in defender‘s range than in our 4betting range. We can of course continue bluffing but AK wouldn‘t be my choice based on its good showdown value and equity to improve after a check-back.

Comment | Eldora commented on Enough with pio

I very strongly agree that I have never thought while watching any PIO video "oh crap let's skip this I use GTO+ so this doesn't help me". It's like saying - "oh that's a live sesseion on Stars but I play on Party I can't use this." If really eager to do so any player should be able to translate everything someone does in PIO to a different solver with some software know-how effort.

At the same time I can of course understand that there is some excitement in seeing the pro use exactly the same software you do and without doubt there are some value advantages that can't be denied because you might learn some tricks how to maneuver the software. I can assure that we are still looking to diversify the softwares covered in our library wherever we can.

Pitsquared you bring up a good point that how a coach uses the software becomes more and more important. When solvers were still something mysterious and new to non-professional players this was different but mastering how to coach and teach with a solver is something we strongly encourage our coaches to incorporate and are steadily working on. I also see a clear trend that coaches have gotten better with this which seems like a natural evolvement. But surely there remains room for improvement for the future.

I haven't watched this yet but insanely looking forward to it. I suspect this series will help lots of members who shy away from watching HU NL because they don't have any foundations. This content can help getting into the subject maybe also for players who want to start crushing in heads-up battles when starting 6-max tables or being left heads up after tables break down.

Of course it will be gold for everyone interested in learning HUNL as their main game even more.

Comment | Eldora commented on 10nlz: Two Gross Spots

1) He looks like a recreational player even though we only have 10 hands on BTN. His range after the flop action could contain quite some flushdraws: Nut flushdraws or even maybe some K-J high flushdraws all the way down to low flushdraws with a pair or straight draw to go with it. After him not raising the flop on this drawy board I think we can discount lots of his lower sets we are still ahead of. Of course there are some 9x which fit well into his range but after the massive flop action we can also discount some of them (e.g. 97s without a flushdraw J9s without a flushdraw).

So overall as played I think shoving turn can put a big portion of his range in an ugly spot and avoid him realizing all his equity. Note that we have lots of nut full house or better outs here (10) which almost would give you the equity to check-call. So if you check here and he decides to turn some of his flushdraws into bluffs you would even need to call. That's why I think just shoving is better.

Regarding your flop line I think I prefer betting bigger because 3way you probably don't bet a lot of your range. This would make me go bigger with the hands I choose to bet with plus it's a pretty drawy board which also should give some more frequency to bigger sizes.

Aug. 25, 2019 | 11:03 a.m.

haha okey got it certainly nothing wrong with that then. I appreciate their work too

Aug. 24, 2019 | 5:55 a.m.

Now I enjoy GTO+ a lot too but you display a GTO+ profile pic which might reveal some bias? :P Or just such an incredible big fan? ;)

Aug. 23, 2019 | 10:23 a.m.

I haven't done much work with Flopzilla yet but I assume some big advantages of the solver-nodelocking approach are:

  • Detecting leaks of the pool / your opponents. Example: You notice a certain texture should be check-raised 25% of the time but you already know they might at most reach 10-15%. Thus you can nodelock this and might find that you can now cbet 100% of your range instead of 65% before. But without the solver you might have never found out how much check-raising should be done on certain boards
  • Learning about multi-street approaches with value but also especially bluffing candidates. Example: You might find new bluffing candidates or detect you picked the wrong bluffs in different spots (for instance in some spots you might overvalue blockers as bluffing candidates but in other spots you might overvalue equity compared to blockers and so on). Regarding value it might reveal some slowplay candidates you haven't thought of.
  • I think it should be a much faster process

On the contrary one big plus of constructing the ranges manually in non-solver software is an enhanced learning curve because you are more involved with the ranges compared to just clicking through what the solver says. So it might have more direct effects on translating your study work to in-game ability. So there should be great value in combining both study methods.

Regarding a possible switch to MTTs: If you would decide to do so I don't think the work you've put into your 6-max game will be anything close to wasted. MTTs have lots of additional concepts and you have to tweak your 6max knowledge to integrate different stack sizes / play with lower SPR postflop and do a lot of different preflop and ICM work. But your general postflop capabilities will be super powerful for MTTs in general.

Aug. 21, 2019 | 5:52 a.m.

I sometime ran a quick database search in our own videos for this, maybe this helps a bit too:

Topic: Any video for equilab/flopzilla?

Aug. 21, 2019 | 5:35 a.m.

Agree that coping with and executing turn leads probably is a way understudied area.These two vids by Daniel Dvoress and Francesco Lacriola (just released this week) should be a good starting point:

Comment | Eldora commented on Charts

Hey ParaRose we don't currently offer shove/calling charts in a section on the site. While I'm sure you will be able to dig up some charts on the web note that it will be incredibly complex to get you prepared for all kinds of upcoming situations with charts due to the many different influences that strongly influence the ranges:

  • stack size
  • absolute and relative positions
  • ICM (stage of the tournament / closeness to the money / price-jumps when in the money)
  • What player type are you facing (most players will play pretty far from optimal especially on lower stakes)

While I'm sure looking at a chart might help you to get a rough understanding of the situation I'd strongly advice you to aim for a more thorough understanding to learn how to maneuver all these adaptive situations that you will find yourself in.

We have two sections in the MTT -> Learning Paths for Preflop Play and ICM which should have lots of valuable content for you for this purpose but I'd also like to recommend two specific videos our MTT Essential coach Owen Shiels just released a few weeks ago and Ryan Martin released within his MTT Fundamentals series:
How to Study: Shove-Call Ranges (Owen Shiels)
MTT Fundamentals #10: Short Stack Play (Ryan Martin)

Overall, mastering your preflop ranges (and also even only 3bet-shoving/calling ranges) is a crucial part in MTTs to become a winning player but at the same time it's a steady learning task and you will most likely steadily improve your own ranges here by experience / studying / playing around with software like HRC (HoldemResources Calculator), ICMIZER etc...

I also just found this thread where someone talked about an option where to get push/fold charts: New to SNG/MTT

Aug. 19, 2019 | 1:12 a.m.

Aug. 18, 2019 | 11:02 a.m.

I think the K is a pretty blank turn card after this flop scenario and I think a rec who wanted to shovel money into the pot with a decent 9 or also bluffed with a straight draw could panick and just interprete this overcard as a good bluffing card or even shove a random 9 because he would feel obliged to call for 70% pot left.

I‘m not even convinced that vs a recreational A9/Q9 is that much better of a bluffcatcher here - it‘s true we block 99 and 96 but he could 3bet 99 some of the time pre and regarding 96 even as a rec probably only has the suited combos. But on the other hand when we hold a 9 and specifically A9 some of his 9x and with A9 also his most likely overplay candidates are blocked heavily (also because he holds all suited and offsuit combos of those).

Aug. 16, 2019 | 6:04 a.m.

Was this video tagged wrong? Sorry about that and thanks for the note it has been updated in the meantime ;)

Aug. 14, 2019 | 7:38 p.m.

I would have also gone a bit larger OTR probably 66%. Also exploitatively speaking, in these lower stakes pools on boards where weaker players get suspicious if they're being bluffed (which might hold especially true on paired boards) a reasonable bigger bet might get the same calling frequency e.g. by 99/TT/Ax than for your smaller size despite it obviously being a mistake theoretically.

Of course we don't want to go too crazy given the rivered flush and still some Ax being possible but just considering calling elasticity I wouldn't care too much about betting small only for that reason vs a weaker player.

The rest of your hand thought process seems solid. Nh :)

Comment | Eldora commented on If Im wasting my time ?

Hey irabu1
I think what you described is what many players encounter after having taken a longer break from poker. Probably you even played pre black friday before returning now and the change in the games has been so drastic that you aren't a winner anymore even at lower stakes, currently.

Based on the story you outlined above it's a bit unclear to me which stakes you have significantly beaten in the past though? Did I get it right that you beat NL50 for a reasonable amount of hands but when taking shots at NL100 it didn't work out? Or could you neither beat NL50/NL100 back then?

Comment | Eldora commented on GTO + SOLVER

Hey GTO+ lovers

Krzysztof Slaski just released a new video deploying GTO+ two days ago. You can check it out here:
Studying My Game w/ GTO+ and CREV (Krzysztof Slaski)

We're keeping our eyes open for possibilities to feature more content with GTO+ for all of you interested in this type of content.

July 15, 2019 | 5:28 p.m.

Hey Bosco

This question is not easy to tackle because it's a very general request. Did I understand it correctly that you're interested in finding content teaching you how to play more aggressive yourself?

Basically, playing poker with a professional mindset bases on the fundamental to maximize your EV in different spots and on different tables by adjusting to the unique surrounding you find yourself in. While it is true that a LAG playing style generally reflects the strategy of good and winning players, there's also situations where being a bit more TAG might profit you more. This is why our pros usually won't lable one of their videos as "learning how to play LAG" but are always thoughtful to adjust to the different surroundings and a LAG/TAG approach is usually the result.

But of course there are specific situations where you can exploitatively put your opponents in uncomfortable spots playing more aggressive than usual if you expect them to not stand up to your aggression correctly.

My advice to implement more aggressive knowledge from videos would be learning about some aggressive opportunities that come up during your play. From there executing these aggressive opportunities with balance in mind will automatically make you a more aggressive but still solid and balanced player.

In the Learning Paths NLHE you can find some especially suited topics to learn how to choose the spots when to show aggression without blowing away unnecessary money
1) 3-Betting
2) 4-Betting
3) Continuation Bets
4) Check-Raising
5) Bluffing

Here's also one specific videos covering aggressive plays that jumped to my mind but note that there will be many more on the site:

Raising Turn C-bets - Julian Kopanskiy

Besides from that just watching some Essential coaches' live play videos will give you a good feel to explore some aggressive options because our pros frequently act quite aggressively at the tables when it's the winning play. I've set up a filter for you here:
NLHE Essential Live Play Videos

But once again, be careful with just deciding that you want to be a very LAG player because while there are situations where playing LAG is appropriate it doesn't guarantee you to be a winning player if done blindly.
