You have to pay if you want to use it a lot. I suggest you find their support channels for other questions.

Sharkscope or similar. The results are often blocked.

Stay away from GG. Rake is too high. Many good options and stars is among the better ones.

It's cheating because the poker site define it as cheating in their TOS.

Sept. 9, 2022 | 12:54 p.m.

I think it's very important that poker sites stop what is prohibited like mining, seating scripts, GTO assistance, HUDs (on sites it's not allowed), bots, etc. If it's too easy to use then you are more or less forced to join them (mostly thinking about seating scripts and HUD/DB).

Mined HHs is a less severe form of cheating but still cheating on most sites. You don't break any TOS if you get mined hands from a site you never played on to study general population trends. So I'd recommend getting HHs from a site you don't play to if you want to get HHs.

Cheating is not a big issue in most 6max cash games I've played in or heard about. It will happen from time to time but not an issue all the time.

Blind win rate is fine. It's your late position win rate that is bad in the sample. A good winning reg will have close to 30bb/100 on the BTN. Make sure to keep opening like 45% there even with rake.

Variance is huge for these things so don't read too much into it. Without variance you would have a win rate where you trade blows. You beat some players and some players beat you. However, the sample is too small to not be dominated by variance.

The reason call 3bet is so bad is became people 3bet way too tight. I
You will lose a lot if you call wide against tight and linear 3betting ranges. Solution is just to fold a lot unless you got a hand with good properties combined with a good price.

Hey. Maybe consider WPN skins. Black chip, ACR etc. GG rake is as bad as it gets. WPN allows you to play unregulated with normal rake in regulated countries.

Maybe ask in GTO wizard discord. It's 50x more active than this subforum and it's full of people who think it's THE way to study poker.

Nice reflection. We can literally see you evolve in this thread. You're pretty good at being 'real' and voicing your experiences. Don't underestimate that trait. It makes it quite easy for you to quickly learn lessons and grow.

This is like full 90 min coaching session size question. I think this is like what Qing Yang specialize at. There are probably some videos on it somewhere too.

July 11, 2022 | 11:23 a.m.

Why you care if people 4bet half of what they should? This is like facing a river overbet by a nit that always have it when he bets big on the river.

July 11, 2022 | 10:54 a.m.

As an example, a 28/25 opens from MP. We have AQs on the BTN, we 3-bet and now he 4-bet shoves. With AQs, perhaps you can call here

Never call against a reg there. Those shoves are so heavily weighted towards AKo you are literally losing like 20bb or something making the call.

Against spewing rec is different though.

You are kind of creating problems in your mind that isn't there. I understand it's a comfort zone thing and it will feel difficult for a while, but you have to go through it to grow. Facing too much 4bet shove by AK and low pairs is bad for AQs exactly but you gain back that EV when you have QQ+.

So if we 3-bet for value but can't stand a 4-bet, shouldn't we call?

Simple answer is no and it's not a real concern in most games you will play because people under 4bet like crazy.

Be careful with believing your feelings at this point of your development. At some point when you are more trained you want to start to listen more to them again, but for now it's best to work on doing things even if it feels wrong at first.

July 11, 2022 | 10:47 a.m.

It's even more important in high rake games like you've talked about. Also, people 4bet way too little so can just happily fold a lot if you face a 4bet. Can also just ship in AA because you get a lot of value when they don't have many of the 4bet then fold to 5bet hands.

July 11, 2022 | 10:37 a.m.

No, most people don't play call there as the hands that can call but would be too wide to 3bet are 0EV. No win rate in HJ calls. Just use EP vs BTN for that spot postflo. Closer to reality anyway. BTW a loose fish flat is somewhat close to BB call against SB open.

July 11, 2022 | 10:20 a.m.

I'd look at some of those YouTube videos

July 11, 2022 | 10:18 a.m.

You have clicked on BTN raise which means you go to next node in game tree. After a BTN raise SB is next to act, so you are looking at SB linear 3bet range against BTN open.

July 11, 2022 | 10:18 a.m.

PC left column is preflop caller. PR row on top is preflop raiser. You should find PC BTN and PR CO, so lool for BTN on left and CO on top and find the intersection. There is something there ;)

I tend to just click through the preflop tree. Pretty sure there is a YouTube tutorial. I'll see if I can find it:
Newest update

Not sure what best is but many GTO base vids on their YouTube. They have awesome support on their discord too.

Comment | Kalupso commented on SB vs BB

His BvB 3bet is probably closer to 15% if overall is 11%.

Comment | Kalupso commented on SB vs BB

27/21 with 11 3bet %

This is not a preflop nit profile so JJ clear 4bet and TT mostly but closer. Even 99 can consider "getting it in" but then mainly as 4bet shove together with AQo and AKo. Maybe some JTs too in 4brt jam if you want to have it. 4bet shove is most relevant against overly linear 3bet that is also on wide side.

JJ is more of a value 4bet against call 4bet range. Same for AKo and AQs (yes, AQs is a value 4bet here).

This you call "GTO" is already speeding up your learning process :D

In general, what you do here is how I like to study. Think about a spot and what you think is good or correct and then check solutions. Then you can start to question what you missed in your analysis and make corrections or learn something that explains it better. In the beginning this is difficult because you lack the fundamentals to do so. Why books like the new one from Janda is really helpful. They help build a framework for analysing spots.

July 11, 2022 | 9:03 a.m.

Yes, and correctly so. Could easily fix a leak if you call ATo and QJo. Gap concept. When calling outside BB you need to be ahead of some hands in the raisers range. Typically offsuited hands want to dominate some hands when calling. They make one pair hands and being dominated less and dominating more often is really important to it's EV. Low pairs and suited connected hands are more about the price and implied odds. Also, how often you get squeezed.

July 11, 2022 | 8:59 a.m.

It's not full 100% GTO but it's the equilibrium solution given game tree and solver algorithm. No human tampering or what makes sense logically or similar. You can say it's GTO approximation.

Maybe the no solution spots are either 3 players to the flop or after flop lines that never happens in the solver.

July 11, 2022 | 8:56 a.m.

Post a screenshot. You definitely get to see turn and river strategies if doing it correctly.

July 11, 2022 | 7:43 a.m.

When is the next one?

July 10, 2022 | 10:17 p.m.

The efficiency is just so high that you kind of shoot yourself in the foot to not learn to use it in any basic way. It's not about mimicking GTO or not either. More about just seeing a bit of the range and equities and what hands can do.

It really doesn't matter much with your goals, but it's not difficult to click buttons in these software at least.... Getting something out of it might be difficult but you don't really need that at first. Just looking a bit at range and clocking buttons is good enough at first.

July 10, 2022 | 9:09 p.m.

Sounds reasonable. In terms of GTO stuff. Just a little goes a long way. When studying the RIO video I'd have GTO base (free) open on the side and click through for some of the spots that comes up. Look a bit at the ranges and strategies. Just use it to add context to analysis in the video. Will help you make sense of both solver and training content and slowly build your ability to analyse your own hands.

July 10, 2022 | 8:20 p.m.

Qing Yang (maybe mistyped) probably has something on flop CBet.

July 9, 2022 | 7:31 p.m.

There are different reasons on different flops. You might see higher frequencies if you allow even smaller flop sizes.

July 9, 2022 | 7:30 p.m.

Common "leak". It takes dedication to change. I sometimes get into that kind of thinking and sometimes is able to let go of those things. A lot of people like to ride the highs of winning but the consequence is you learn to pay attention to results and get the lows of losing too.

I set some intention or goal before each session to make me focus on process. Also, have some mantras to use to let go of trying to control results

Lot's of stuff you can do if you actually want to change but you gotta be willing to let go of caring about 5k hand sample heaters too...

Comment | Kalupso commented on IP 3 bet pot

What he did is good if all in. Could also put in even more with AQ+ than this. Min hand for this line he took is around KQ or AQ.
