I currently use DriveHUD but I am interested to switch to PokerTracker 4. I have also purchased Player Xray for DriveHUD but I think PokerTracker has a better note taking system. I also like that PokerTracker 4 has the leak finder. What are your thoughts? Btw, do you think PokerTracker has a better note taking system than DriveHUD? This one is very important for me so I can focus more on playing and give less time on writing notes.

I asked Scylla from GTO+ and he said me that if I want to use the solver in the cloud then I need to buy 2 licenses, one for the cloud computer, and one for my own computer. He also said this: ''Also, our licensing system locks keys to the computer that they were generated for, so it won’t be possible to frequently switch between servers.
As a rule of thumb I would expect that you’ll have a better user experience with a faster computer.
So if at all possible, please wait until you get access to a computer that is better equiped to run GTO software. ''
I also asked him if I should use either virtual dedicated server, a VPS or a dedicated server. He said: ''As for servers, I don’t have much personal experience with this, so it’s probably best to ask elsewhere.''

Unfortunately my PC doesn't have the specs GTO+ requires to run it. And so I am asking: Can GTO+ be used in the cloud? I saw that PioSolver can be used in the cloud. Is the same true for GTO+ ? I've never used cloud computing services before. I don't know how those ones work. All I know is that when we use those services, we can use another powerful PC via the cloud. I suppose that GTO+ can be used there. Sorry if it's a silly question. I just need to be sure before purchasing GTO+ .

I mean that I use a 50% range for NL5. I don't say that we need to use such a range for stakes like NL200.

Most likely I did a mistake and the author wasn't mentioning a very high cbet% ip for monotone boards. I don't remember very well.
For those boards you mentioned, our cbet frequency for a spot like CO open vs BTN call is close to 0% right? Can you give those percentages too?
Btw, I thought that we needed to use a big sizing in monotone boards(like 75%). It seems weird to use small sizing to me for these spots in GTO sollutions. I see now that this is an expoilative adjustment(the bigger sizing) vs weaker players we do since we don't care to apply GTO vs those people.

Hero(100bb) opens in the BTN for 2.5x. BB(100bb) calls. Our opening range is about 50%.
How do you play your range here? I used Flopzilla in order to see how my strategy looks like. I added to my cbet range: Flushes, sets, 2P, TP of K9 or better. I added 50% of 3rd pairs. I checked QQ, TT-66, 44-22 and J pairs. I also bet all nut fds(including Ad5x) and all gutshots, oesd. Also I added Qd8x, Qx8d, Td8x, Tx8d, 9d8x, 9x8d.
This betting range is 46% cbet and about 20% of starting range are pair hands or better. I think I need to be much more aggressive in this spot. I read that oop in monotone boards our cbet% must very low. However, ip it needs to be very high.
What hands should I add here? And what hands I may need to remove?
Sept. 16, 2020 | 9:44 a.m.
Here is one of my assumptions for this spot: Always calls AQ pre. Raises 50% of the time AQ on flop and 33% of the time KQ on flop and also sets 100% of the time. Didn't include Q5s, Q3s or 53s in his pre range. Also raises 25% of the time 64s. On turn cbets sets and TP always but doesn't for 64s. It's weird because why choose such a big sizing with that bluff. Our equity vs this range is 33%.
He might be raising though AQ and KQ 100% of the time on flop and if he cbets those here then this is an easy call. I don't know if I should call here. It depends on villain. What do you think?

I believe we need to call. I read in Applications of NLHE the following: ''In general, most players significantly underestimate how
much stronger a hand should be to bet, call, or raise when
multiway. Top pair hands and even overpairs will regularly not be
strong enough to bet or raise on many board textures where three
or more players see the flop. Furthermore, weak players often use
close to the same range regardless of how many opponents they
are facing. This is a huge leak which results in them going to
showdown with hands that are too weak.''
For this reason mentioned I think we need to call here. Maybe in theory, we need to fold here, but in this spot I think it's call

Looking for someone who plays at least in NL5(I play there too). PM me if you are interested.
I want to review hands daily in Flopzilla. We can keep each other accountable so we don't procrastinate on our daily study goals. We can often look interesting hands together and share our thoughts on how our strategy needs to be. The goal is learn from each other and improve together.

Ok. Thank you!
Sept. 11, 2020 | 9:29 a.m.
This is very helpful. Thank you! Where did you find these ranges? Did you use any solver? Or is there any site that has many of those? I'd be interested to see more ranges for preflop :)
Sept. 11, 2020 | 8:34 a.m.
What range would you recommend to play as a call and as a 3bet in the BB vs a BTN 2.5x open? I am asking for NL5. I would also be interested to see how much those ranges differ vs the ones we would defend in higher stakes where he rake is lower.

For WTSD, I made a mistake. Checked the values now and the average is between 24-27 and so 35 is very high.
The turn gives to 98s a straight but this was probably being bet on flop. It seems that he is slowplaying sth on the flop which he then raises on turn. Since you say he won't do that with JJ, then this means that he is raising for value trips+ . Also because his AF is too low, I think he isn't bluff raising often turn. His Value:Bluff ratio isn't balanced for sure. Regarding what hands he bluffs, it feels weird to me to do that with a hand like AK + no fd but he may be doing it. I mean you have some good reason to tell that he is doing it since you a better player than me. But even if he did it, AK is most likely being 4bet pre and thus he will rarely have it here. I think he may want to raise a draw which has a gutshot here like A9s, A8s or a fd. Anyway, I think we may want to fold turn. This player has a very low AF. But even if I am making a mistake on turn fold, then river is for sure a fold.
