Hi Dan, that's an interesting read.
Here are some suggestions for improvement: This place, of course :)
- Focus on solid ranges from all positions before you "dive in too deep" no pun intended. As Phil mentioned.
- Don't worry about redline, maybe until high stakes.
I likewise am not up to date on NL 6max.
- 2 Big skills to always remember and rely on: People underbluff and overcall. Don't overbluff too many spots as people are quite sticky everywhere and don't overcall because no one is bluffing enough, even HS players lack bluffs in spots, and pressing that fold button will you get you to where you want to be.
- Lastly, focus on population tendencies in player pools unless you have a big sample and good reads on individual tendencies. Exploitation and good fundamentals are key.
Don't get discouraged, keep grinding and best of luck! Cheers.

Hi Ben, what advice would you give to a HU PLO Lowestakes/Midstakess reg on improving with monkersolver. PIO seems to be a lot easier to use. Monker we really need to dig in to get solutions in a simple manner and application seems a bit cumbersome, not sure where to start. Looking for patterns seems obvious, and approximating such large strat doesn't seem too easy.

Phil Galfond 1:50, don't you think that when you're calling AK82 on turn, and you're very likely to face a bet on the river and have to fold, it's a pretty -EV play? Also, the fact that when you hit 8 or 2 or A and face another pot bet, you're in a reverse implied odds situation since he might improve on those cards as well? And instead you could defend hands that have a bit better visibility against his perceivable-strong range? I just think it seems a bit loose to call that turn.
Also, what do you think about folding flop if ImagineKing likes to barrel a lot of turns? And potentially follows through on rivers? I guess the adjustment would be to either calldown lighter or fold more on flop, and if he is barrel-happy, what do you think about flop fold? :) Curious to hear your thoughts

@reStacks What hands would you be opt to 4bet in this spot that could comfortably call 5bets or have high equity edge in those bigger pots. I'm a little new to PLO, the obvious candidate is AAxx ds and single suited I suppose but what other hands, If I had to pick some I guess I would use strong connected ds however they don't come around that often, so I guess ds Axxx with some wheel draws. nut straights?

Post | Everize posted in PLO: 275bb Deep Heads Up 4Bet Spot

Villain was 3betting 53% over small sample (38 hands) and not folding to any 4bets.
My reads were that he would have to X/R a lot of turns to be able to win the hand given the action with hands like A5xx etc.
Turn spot having some implied odds on straights + the times he was bluffing I figured it was still a call, 53% is a really wide range to get to this spot.
All comments are appreciated :) Let me know what you guys think.

Hi Teunuss, at 9:15, you said you would be mixing up your sizings, one smaller one and one larger one(how big is each?)

And which hands would you be betting for which sizing? I presume his range to be some KQ, AQ, maybe AJs, occasional QTs, and you block JJ so his calling range I'd guess is like QTs, AQ, maybe KK, AA which you don't block, it also doesn't look like you have too many bluffs, 87s, ATs?
Would you want to be betting big with 9x and smaller with Qx and JJ?

Hey Tyler at 28:25, you say that the villain should be betting huge on the river, like jamming basically, my question is, should he do it with AQ+ in your opinion or even tighter than that? After running a quick sim, PIO opts to only only jam with sets+ in that spot for all in sizing.

You should also have quite a bit of flushes with Jd Xd as well, plus a bunch of AdQd if you don't 4bet those, and possibly A4d, feels like there are quite a few combinations, also villain does get called by QJ.
Honestly it seems like a spot where AQ might be a thin value bet, no? Considering how many better hands we have in that spot. Correct me if I'm wrong, what would be your range for jamming the river in villain's shoes for value and would you have more than 1 sizing or just jam/check. Thanks! :) Keep up the great work.

I can confirm that Joanna102 had next level exploit on the villain. #Truth

I'm sorry to say but I am totally on board with 500zreg, as unfortunate as it might sound for other posters in this thread. If I were to purchase something that costs $2000, I would really want to know that it would improve my game, not just something I would read and never use, like a random fiction book. 500zreg brings a lot of topics, you mention that you are willing to play hundred thousands of hands and post them in months from now, how would that even be adequate, the whole point of posting hands is so people have proof that your knowledge has an impact, and it could only help them BEFORE the release of the content. Theory does not turn people into superstars, especially if it has no practical use, that is exactly what the other poster is trying to say and It is extremely important to take that into consideration.

If anybody could show up and suddenly post courses for $2k, without proof, a lot of people would be scammed. I realize that Tom Chambers is a coach on RunItOnce and nobody is questioning Phil's ability to find people that are bringing value however, we are not looking at RIO's content at this point but external $2k purchase that a coach if offering on its own time, it would be absurd if nobody had questions or concerns.

Moreover, JNandez is a winning Pro crushing the stakes he's playing, and you being more of a "theory coach" at least in my eyes, probably also in many others', I don't understand how your pack could offer more value than his, opportunity cost for you might play a role but it doesn't in everyone else's view. Which is beyond me how I could ever purchase it over someone that has not only proof of crushing those stakes, but also his own pack that costs less than yours! I just don't see the value, and you do give the "indifference" vibe to me, which makes me less eager, probably handful other people as well.
Lastly, proof of being a winning player, and potentially some sort of preview of the content or whatever could totally change everyone's view on this. Although I do wish you best, 500zreg brings very obvious points that I'm sure everyone else is thinking, I'm surprised nobody else wrote anything to back him up so I might as well be the first.

Comment | Everize commented on Big Pots

Hey Tyler, don't you think the strategy of assuming that BB is always 4betting linear range is highly exploitable? Under assumption that you will be flatting most of your middling pocket pairs in such position, that would make strategy of betting 1/3rd on flop and turn highly profitable against your line, especially knowing that the profit of your strategy is highly based on not seeing those Broadway cards, and even if they don't fire the turn, they still have 6 outs on the river, and potentially, very profitable 1/3rd, Check, Bluff line.
Just feels like, if opposition did watch a video, which they might, would really net you low EV in calling those spots IMO. Curious to hear your thoughts.

@Ben, now that we all agree on loving your videos, how about you pump them up at 2x the speed! Double the content! win/win! <3 Excitement off the charts!

Thanks, worked!

Does the video work for anybody? It still does not open for me.. Tried for 3 days now.

July 30, 2016 | 6:28 p.m.

I assume it's because BB has to call his portion of A highs to 1/3rd bet, and majority of them contain a bd fd. AJhh doesn't have as big of a blocker effect and out of all AJs, probably best one to continue barreling, also increases fold equity on the river. We also lack bluffs, and firing spades on turn and river isn't as good. Ben can correct me if I'm wrong. And PIO tends to fire A9-AJs 7s turns, although checks rivers and bluffs KQ-KT non spade instead..

July 22, 2016 | 8:36 p.m.

Great video, I'm amazed how you talk about everything a viewer would want you to mention, bet sizing, blockers, other parts of your range, other insights etc. Great job, you seem like you've done this before.

Hey Daniel, great video. I have a question you might shed some light on. When you had your strategy of betting 25% value and 12.5% bluffs and you face a villain that starts calling down more from 50% to 65%. Is there any adjustment you should look to make in that spot like value bet even thinner and expand your value range while cutting down on your bluffing range to increase EV or would you let your strategy be as it is and why? I understand that the strategy will not be exploitable by villain, but if he will be calling more than usual, I think you could increase EV by looking to value bet even thinner and would it be something you want to do or is it better to just keep ranges as they are in real scenario?
Keep up the great work, love the videos!

Feb. 3, 2016 | 7:41 a.m.

I was interested in this spot on my own, and by playing every AhXh this way(checking flop, to call turn and raise every blank river with AhXo and AhXh you're going to have 7 combos, gave him every Ah2h - AhJh, and then AhJx (AhJd, AhJs,AhJc) 3 combos and AhTx 3 combos(6 combos of bluffs). So given villain checks to us on the river and we fire, we're going to have even more value combos assuming we're betting KQ+ (9 combos) or better, making it total 16 value combos, and only 7 bluff combos. Assuming we don't call 3bets wider than ATo preflop, if we do, then we're only going to be more bluff heavy on the river. Hope that helped, obviously Teunuss can tell us more about it if I'm incorrect.

Feb. 2, 2016 | 6:18 a.m.

Tyler, optimal bet sizing is definitely an interesting topic, but how reliable do you think what you found out is to the games you play which probably aren't this optimal with sizing. Does all what you've discovered by doing math make you want to bet closer to the optimal bet sizing or is that just something you did out of interest and curiosity?

Jan. 20, 2016 | 4:25 a.m.

Hey Zaza, awesome video as always!
31 min mark top left table with QTo, on the river you opt to bet 1010 $into 1178$, what do you do against a villain's jam in that spot? I'd assume villain would almost never bluff there unless he has a flush, maybe even a weak flush does not jam, what your decision given though it would be only 410$ more to call? Do you make an exploitative fold assuming he never bluffs or do you call down given the insane odds? Cheers!

Great Video, my favorite one of yours

Jan. 14, 2016 | 6:30 a.m.

I'd like to see another concept video like the one you did with calling down. I think something that is overlooked is building postflop ranges on certain board texture, everyone puts all the work off the tables and I think it would be nice to see how to construct a range on flop and account for runouts in position, something like CO vs SB/BB and then some interesting board and getting in depth about what you're thinking when constructing a range, what goes into your checking range and so on. I think people would find it very useful, it wouldn't have to be necessarily "your range" because giving out that might be too valuable but basically, showing how to do it would be great.
Site has lots of live play videos and session reviews, they are great but I'm sure it could use some more postflop concepts. Great video by the way, lots of good information.
Cheers! You will be missed!

I understand how it works, the question was whether you should try to meet MDF in all spots, because it's probably most effective in game tree ending spots and I rarely see people look for MDF on other streets other than the river.

Jan. 10, 2016 | 9:10 p.m.

Ben, when using minimum defense frequency, does it also apply on flops and turns or just rivers where the game tree basically ends

Jan. 10, 2016 | 3:01 a.m.

Any particular reason for not reloading on tables?
