I enjoyed this one! A point that resonated with me was (paraphrased) - "When an opponent plays a bet bet bet line on a runout that is unfavorable for their range I think it's stronger/less bluffy than it should be."
Keep up the good work Ben, big fan!

Alex "Pwndidi" Theologis was seemingly destined for poker. While other kids were outside banging around with the soccer ball, Alex was inside grinding Tomb Raider. Lara Croft gave way to DOTA which gave way to Warcraft and eventually to chess and finally poker. What began as home games with friends turned into an online grind that led him to where he is today. In 2019, Alex maintained an ABI of ~$420 and his theoretical approach combined with population exploits has proven very successful.
His first video reviews the action from a $5k event that saw him make a deep run. In future videos he plans to create a wide variety of material largely based on feedback from the viewers.
Welcome aboard Alex!

Vlada "Vlada2108" Stojanovic started unlike many of his counterparts as a live player in small stakes games at his local casino. When he eventually found his way to the virtual felt he focused primarily on MTT's which remain his bread and butter. His GTO oriented approach has proved successful during his foray into the high stakes world. Outside of poker he enjoys basketball, psychology, and skiing.
Vlada's first video covers a 4 step approach to studying any aspect of poker and he uses 3bet pots to illustrate this. His future videos should be a mix of theory, specific situation drills, HH and database reviews, and some live play sprinkled in.
Welcome aboard Vlada!

We don't support the PT4 format in our forums. You can see which sites are supported in the bottom right corner after clicking "post a hand." We can troubleshoot further if it's still not working if you email the raw HH to [email protected]

Hey all - quick note here that Ben is out of town for the next week and will not be answering questions until he returns. Continue to post anything here in the thread but just hang tight for a response. Thanks!

Great feedback, this is on our (Run It Once's) end. We try to strike a balance between cutting dead parts and leaving in the action parts but sounds like we got a little overzealous here. Will keep it in mind for future for sure.

I sent you an email regarding this. For anyone else interested in something like this, please email [email protected] and I would be happy to discuss the next steps.

Congratulations to Saulo Ribeiro on his addition to our Elite NL coaching roster. Saulo was already punishing the $200 zoom games when making his debut as a RIO coach last summer so it's no surprise that the success continued when he began playing $500 as his main stake. This success at the tables coupled with the great effort he put into his videos and positive community reception makes this promotion an easy decision.
His first video as an Elite coach went live today and after a quick reintroduction of himself and his goals for 2020 he discusses the topic of practicing and how to effectively study the game.
Congrats again Saulo and good luck on and off the tables in 2020!

Hello - unfortunately we don't support this format in our forums for conversion. You would need to post the raw HH directly from Stars and not the HM3 version of the HH. An example of what that HH should look like can be found here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hand_history
If you continue to have difficulty please email us at [email protected] and we can troubleshoot the issue.

Another recommendation once you get some working knowledge under your belt is to listen to BBC (language you're trying to learn). If nothing else it gives you the pronunciation of words and the commonly used term or phrase for things that might not be readily available in your textbooks. Languages will sometimes have words for "phone" or "computer" but in reality people will just say "phone" or "cell" or "mobile" instead of the antiquated word from long ago.

Hi All -
Sorry for the delay in responding to this post. Some time ago we began a complete overhaul of our app and recently completed the new version and got it live on iOS (still working on android). There are still a few tweaks and bugs that we're working on but for the most part it should be working without issue. A few items to troubleshoot if you're still having issues:
- Please make sure you have the current app. We could not push the new app as an update and had to offer it as an entirely new app. If you search "Run It Once" it should be the only app that shows up now. Make sure this is the app you're using.
- Use your site username (NOT your email address) and password to login and be aware of case sensitivity.
If you're still having an issue accessing the app please email me at [email protected] and I will further troubleshoot any issues. Again my apologies for the inconvenience and we're still going to be pushing some fixes in the coming days that should have things running smoothly in the future.

Jae "YugiohPro" Kim started his poker journey like so many others with school friends in various home games. He quickly fell in love with the game and began going to Indian casinos in California where he would play limit poker during the NL boom. The transition to online poker came during this time period but he found himself struggling to turn a profit until stumbling into training sites and forums where he became a voracious consumer of all things poker strategy. The grind continued through law school and during this time he managed to chop the Sunday Warmup for 6 figures and hasn't looked back since.
With an ABI around $90, Jae makes his bones at the $55-$215 MTT range, occasionally taking shots at higher stakes events when the situation dictates. As an avid RIO fan before becoming a coach, he seeks to differentiate his content from the other active video makers and feature a mix of solver work, ICM calculators, and leak-finding both on his own game and for members of the community. Outside of poker, Jae is an avid gamer with Hearthstone and TFT being his current favorites and is a NBA and Premier League fan.
His first video features a brief bio before examining final table ranges with an eye toward ICM implications.
Welcome aboard Jae!

I said this in Richard's previous installment and completely agree! It's his attention to detail and his treating a 6BB pot the same as a 75BB pot in terms of the depth of analysis (sometimes even more!) that I find the most helpful. Great stuff as always Richard!

Coaches do have an obligation to respond to the questions in their video threads however this expires after the video has been on the site for a reasonable amount of time. Typically you can expect an answer to your questions up to the point when a new video from that coach has been posted however this isn't a hard and fast rule.
