Hey Ben some of ur 3 bet size from SB are exceptionally big. I’m of the impression most people use bigger sizing from BB and a moderate sizing from SB (to reflecti linear nature). So plz elaborate ur rationale.

This helps a lot. Thx, Chris.
Wim Hof method, i watched a Vice doc about him a couple years ago ... but did not think too much about what implication I can draw to better my functionality. It's good to hear that u have some experience with it and can attest to it.
I had 1-2 experience with coldness, and want something really really bad, for example when i was in middle school i want to play basketball well, i remember not improving much with on and off playing ... one night during freezing winter (snowing -30 ish outside) I went to shoot hoops .. (stupid adolescent do) .. until the basketball is kind of covered by ice. Had to stop. To my great surprise I suddenly found a "shot" ever since that night... it's not like I trained much or put in the work necessary to improve (hopelessly lazy). But after that crazy night .. I can just always shoot well. It was transformative.
Another thing is fighting non-stop coughing ... Anyway I'm a big believer in human potential ...both physically and intellectually. What I found is once someone who wants something bad and able to push through his perceived limits/comfort .. even only just by a little bit .. payoffs can be non-linear.
Ur last two paragraph is valuable ... I'm kind of taking notes of more "corporate knowledge" .. will find time to read those books.
Also nap .. and sleeping are generally underrated.
I feel like most people do not adequately live a scientific-oriented lifestyle. There are so much about nutrition, learning, brain and neuroplasticity, untapped potential etc ...
I personally strive and struggle to overcome my weakness such as lose weight and procrastination. I've made some progress in weight loss ever since I heard the name "insulin". But fking procrastination man ... I don't understand how I can dig a big hole time and time again until I panic and put in emergency-saving actions. It's just stupid ...
Comparatively, poker is such a simple game. Language learning ist einfach. We are really our own biggest enemy.
Sry for much rambling here ... thx again for the info and the work you put in. Any improvement at the margin can help lead to no small things.

Hi, Chris, haven't found much literature on this: does cold weather (or slight physical endurance in some other fashion) foster more effective learning? (better, more robust memory? more effective learning, more focused, succinct thoughts when enduring physical discomfort, could it be our survival instinct at work?)
If you know something about this, please share. Thx.

Lol .. let the French be French, it's fine. But I do like your suggestion ... maybe in the future Yoh can produce some content on deep stack play in live poker .. not many material on several hundreds blinds deep on this training site.

What site do you play on?

Hey... eating is overrated. Sleeping is underrated. In most cases I could not resist the anticipation of eating and the process of it ... however ..it's often a downward cycle after the consumption. But .. we are all on our way to become better at something.
Ben is definitely one of the brightest mind in poker. His strength resides in strong theory foundation and ability to execute. I think as you move up higher and higher and facing tougher competition ... his approach becomes increasingly relevant.
Nick Howard ... watched a glimpse of his playing footage ..had the impression he is a terrible player. However .. he does have interesting ideas. Ability to play and ability to provide useful info doesn't necessarily need to perfectly correlate. I think his approach is mainly targeting and most effective in 200nl or lower .. the majority of weak pool. Could be helpful.

Hey good luck with the journey. Reading the tilte u seem to wanna become one of the best, can you share what intrinsically motivates you? Also what's your long-term goal in poker? Thx.

Hey I play 100nl+ and have one of the better winrates ..
u seem to be a dedicated full time player ..
i’m not full time, but do enjoy improving and beating the stake.
Yeah can message me if you are interested.
Sept. 19, 2018 | 10:33 a.m.
Hey I glanced over ur previous videos ... think this one is a lot better .. and have some interesting idea to show.
I appreciate this one. And wish for more experimental & unique approach in the future.

Hey Kevin thx for the video.
6:45 I think Q4 river bluff catch is loose. I believe ip most likely exert pressure from flop on with Tx, Qx, 98s ..feel like ip xb range mostly consists showdown value hands .. or complete give up stab river hand combos involves 4,5 or 6 ..a bit 8. Turn should filter some of his non-showdown bluffs as well (say low clubs). I'm not sure river call with Q high blocking 4x ... is winning a lot.
9:45 34d How do you decide whether to take a stab on turn or river with this hand class on this board? 7c turn though give ip some trips but is a static card for the most part. Do you think exert pressure from turn is better (with added threat of a river follow up)? If we check turn ... leaves only option to be folding ... also gives ip player equity realization a small amount.

Thank you. I'm looking forward to your content a great deal.

Thank you Julian!
Hey I want to ask ... how do you node-lock villain not 3 betting on flop enough (after an already locked cbet strategy) ..say a scenario 3 bet sb vs bn, where PIO has sb cbet 50% ..but villain likely to cbet full range small sizing ... it's easy to node-lock that. Then ... on the same node... Bn raise .. I expect OOP not to 3 bet close to PIO's range, folding more .. and flatting more. Please elaborate on how to "additionally node-lock" oop's response on flop facing a raise?
Do we need to create subtree configuration or just directly click set strategy and node lock?

8:50 55 on AQJ ... haha very ambitious 3 sts bluff .. turn need to check back really high ..
First hand ... yeah ... your are right ... I did not know about the positions and flop actions ... looks like combo draw gets to probe with strong sizes ... what surprised me is . ..some weak FD hands can just play check/f line ... maybe it really attributes back to how strong AQ68 is for IP. It's also sensitive to how much he really check back flop.
