Hello everyone,so i was wondering why do so many ppl have different 4B sizings and what is the correct one,i always thought about the guy who goes big sizing that he isnt very good but recently i started going bigger cuz of the rake to reduce the amounts my villain flats me and force him to just play jam or fold(example 2.5bb>7.5bb>24bb),wondering is this better than going 21bb and giving him better odds to continue.Also deepstack i always thought we would wanna size up OOP to reduce SPR because if we go to small we cant rly stack off overpair on majority of the boards and IP is going to put us in rly tough place if he is aggresive,but ive heard bunch of ppl saying that it actually should be reverse that we shouldnt size up when deeper OOP idk if thats theoretically correct or not because it feels so counter intuitive why would we give him rly good odds to continue his every A5s,JTs or 54s;so if someone could explain how this spots work in theory both 100bb OOP and especially deeper,that would be really helpfull.

Hello everyone,so for majority of last months i studied the game hard every day and gotten good results (50z-100z were my main games) and i thought i am way ahead of the avarage reg level on those stakes for sure, but recently i just became hardstuck im not even winning anymore redline is eating me alive and more the more is the case im starting to figure out that redline is the most important part of a winning player and ppl who say dont be obssesed with redline are wrong because for example i just played yesterday -12 buyin redline session so to think about it like this it means u have to stack someone 12 times without making any calldown mistakes or thin value bets just to BREAKEVEN and thats fcking crazy honestly,like i pretty much know all the spots for redline like open a lot,defend a lot raise BB a lot vs cbet but still it aint working.....So i was wondering have anyone had this kind of problem and managed to get over it,or atleast if u can recommend me some of the coaches u had in the past who foccuses on redline style of play would be super helpful,Thanks.

Hey,nice analyzing.Got a question 26:04 would it be better to fold our weak Ax on such a turn that gives our range so much more combos to call and try to improve(because low Ax are pure bluffcatchers they cant improve),so im thinking of caling calling 44(with a heart that we peel on flop) is better than calling A2 and AT lets say( cuz its our weakest A that cant improve we call A8 and A9 over that) and then we have a lot of flushdraws aswell to call and ofc all the strong hands.

Imo this is a flopped monster or nothing i dont think ppl on these limits value bet AQ here for value(which he can only have 2 combos) then theres some AK that doesnt 4B pre which u block,then there is 8 combos of QJ and JT maybe less depends how he construct his calling range pre.Some people open 76s and 65s some dont,if its opened its 100% call vs 3B...what else KQd KQh is there also.So thats already around 15ish bluffs now u have to look at the HUD or notes and decide will this villain X back his JT or 76s(good draws,lets assume he bets his bad draws QJs's and 65) for free equity or he is the type of a guy who is going to bet it on turn and then u make your decision based on that.Also when A comes on the board some ppl see it as a good card to try to get u off JJ-KK.Anyways u could also block bet turn is the line i prefer cuz A hits u more(im assuming u bet high freq if not range for half pot on this board).

Hey all as tittle says im looking for few ppl that can work together analyze hands and have skype sessions and look thro solver results.If u play similiar stakes would be great im atm jumpin up and down from 50z to 100z on pokerstars
July 30, 2020 | 11:22 a.m.
U should try to visualize your range when u are playing,tell to yourself whats your range on the turn u have all the straights ,2Ps,FDs even JT has more equity to call than this holding so u can easly let this one go,maybe u can call AQ with Ah and then look to bluff rivers on any heart.As played yeah fold river nothing u can do here.
July 27, 2020 | 6:14 p.m.
Yep these set blockers with backdoor straights are our best barrels after raising flop i just thought that i dont block that much once he calls my overbet cuz im not sure he is calling with worse flushes than nut flush draws
May 6, 2020 | 5:55 p.m.
Well i thought the worse the card for us the less we bet but with more polarized sizing,the better card for us we use more stuff like block bets,this is for turn strat tho i know on river we are polarizing on any card so theres not rly that much small betting going on cuz it would be hard to balance with bluffs,no?

I dont think coaching is a must at those low stakes once u get a bit higher already seen every video on rut it once,worked hrs and hrs with flopzilla and piosolver or GTO+,reviewd your database for leaks,compare your stats to other winning regs....once u done all those things BY YOURSELF and u are still stuck and have no clue why u arent improving and beating the game,then getting coach is good.Most ppl take coaching so early while they still dont really understand the fundamentals of the game by themself and by doing so u just waste hrs in coaching cuz those 3-10 hrs how much u take,your coach will need to use them on teaching you the fundamentals and strategy rather than finding your leaks and improving your game.

Well i use GTO+ and sometimes i cant rly be bothered to solve SRP because my PC isnt that great and it takes forever to load,the way what i seen in tutorials poker scientist already has the best sizing made with highest EV for given texture
April 2, 2020 | 7:23 a.m.
Heya i was wondering has anyone purchased this new GTO program thats been made recently? Ive been looking at some of the youtube tutorials and it looks rly interesting,so I wana hear the feedback if some of u guys have it.Thanks.

I play range check flop on this boards OOP then XR,but i guess u can bet stuff like TT-QQ for protection.Turn doesnt change much in theory he shouldnt have many 7x thats opening early positions but if he is unknown then he might.River exploitative fold no one bluffs lower pairs here and even if he is bluffing 98s 3 combos thats still not enough to call cuz he has atleast 10 combo of flushes and some boats

Ah i missread it then thought it was river.
But yeah after thinking abit im guessing AQ doesnt raise to much because it blocks villain calling range, giving us one of the best blutch catchers to call down vs 3 street barrels on good runouts
March 13, 2020 | 1:37 p.m.
zigdon7h About your last screenshot i think id call any Ax vs block bet tbh its to good to fold and to bad to bluff cuz od sdv BUT against that big sizing u put in this is how pool plays pretty much yeah maybe add in AJs as some of the calls together with AQo and 2P+ and fold everything else
March 13, 2020 | 9:22 a.m.
DNegs98 Yh agree with our calling range on the turn as i already calculated all that stuff are in 60% of our range to continue vs this bet and 54 is slightly out of there how i constructed it.On the river u think block isnt good? I think i would have 2 sizes to squeeze value against A8-ATs and all ATo combos and ofc put in some stronger hands in it to make him induce a raise,mainly hands that i block my opponent calling range like A6 A7.The way i see if im him and i decide to block bet im not going to block fold cuz that wouldnt make sense i would just X back instead then with my AJ for example thats to thin for 3 streets in some cases depending who we are against.Edit:i think i just answered my question if my river shove would go thro lol,but thats only my point of view cant know how he thinks
March 13, 2020 | 9:16 a.m.
This is weird how i learnt it so far id guess i would be raising AQ alot on the flop due to ranges being super wide and its our best TP and cuz of that it would allow us to raise more stuff on the flop especially OOP like 54s but i see in your sim its not raisin them.Instead its raisin 22-44 which we maybe substitute for more of those 5X and 6X

Shove makes no sense u lose to all of his value and u fold out his bluffs.Probably never raising that turn vs that sizing maybe only with some Jx or Tx flush draws that dont like calling the bet together with all combos of 77 because if he has value hand he is never going to fold vs your shove cuz what are u repping there right, thats a nice exploit play.
March 9, 2020 | 7 p.m.
turn this should be in your checking range and then XF u have Kx,Jx,flushdraws OESDs sets overpairs,GSs to continue u also block some of his diamonds.U are betting flop for protection and value against 5x, 66-88 then on the turn it becomes good SDV vs those hands.Like Jeff said i think solver rly prefers to bluff with 5x and 3x here instead of good SDV pocket pair.
