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.

Was hoping this would be incorporated into the video in some fashion based on the title...

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:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.

You can post HH's directly to the site using the "post a hand" function from any of the sites that we support.

By now you know go0se.core, chaps1988, and mynameiskarl. Check out today's YT video where Henry Lister takes a crack at one of the toughest Zoom pools in recent memory.

Richard Gayler's path to poker started with Starcraft 2. The American-born grinder met a few players that introduced him to the opportunities in the poker world and he made the transition quickly at age 19. His first foray into the game came at 6-max NL cash games before he found his niche in PLO and hasn't looked back since. After working his way up to lower-midtakes online, he entered into a backing arrangement for highstakes live games. In 2017 he resumed playing on his own, finding success online at 6-max, shorthanded, and HU PLO. His career took him to England where he was able to take advantage of his dual citizenship to play $500 Zoom on Stars. Since then, he's returned stateside where he plays mostly 500-2k PLO and a handful of larger live games.

His playing style is marked by playing as wide and aggressive as his opponents will allow with a VPIP over the last two years at roughly 40. His videos (including his first video) plan to focus on exploitative adjustments against both anonymous and named opponents.

Welcome aboard Richard!

Congratulations to Patrick Sekinger on his addition to our Elite NL coaching roster. This well deserved promotion is a result of Patrick's dedication to producing high-quality content and his success at the tables including moving up to his main stake of $500 zoom. His first video as an Elite coach went live today and provides an overview of poker in 2019 as Patrick sees it and what to expect in the years to come. Patrick's videos that he produced as an Essential coach will remain available to those with an Essential membership. Congrats again and good luck in the coming year!

Excellent timing for this post as we have something that should hit the spot for you at the start of the new year!

In the meantime, one piece of advice that I share with people that are in a similar situation to you is to try as many coaches as you can, even if they aren't necessarily in the area that you are focusing on. I have played exclusively mid/high stakes PLO over the last 8 years or so and have learned a substantial amount from Daniel Dvoress and Tyler Forrester who coach HS MTT's and MSNL respectively.

Even if this was true, you would know the next number in your bit string before reaching the point requiring randomization and that could impact how you play the hand leading up to that point.

vegas777 I sent you an email regarding this issue.

Certainly noted Peter Shwartz - I think HU doesn't run quite as much as it used which could contribute to this but we should be able to get some more HU stuff on the site especially with Phil's challenges coming up.

For Pimsleur - I just bought the audio books. They come in packs of 30 and I think there are 6 or so per language. So "German 1" has 1 through 30. They're usually quick and good to do if you're at the gym or something where you can participate passively.

How you coming? Did you have any luck on those apps?

This is a known issue that most seem to be having on iOS after the most recent update. We very recently completed an overhaul of our app and will be pushing an entirely new version for both iOS and Android in the coming week or two. This should alleviate the issues that you're currently having. Sorry for the inconvenience here and hopefully we can get this sorted very shortly.

Nov. 26, 2019 | 5:06 p.m.

that was indeed the implication!

Enjoyed this one. One thing you touched on in the video that I am guilty of is creating a narrative in my head during a game where a certain player is targeting or leveling me and it can dominate my thought process in hands and force me out of my game even if it's accurate whatsoever.

Nov. 12, 2019 | 8:20 p.m.

One of my favorite aspects of your videos is the level of detail in the analysis of small pots. I think low stakes or new players will tend to want to analyze the big pots and that makes sense as you want to avoid making mistakes in those but often those play themselves out with both players flopping big hands in low SPR situation. It's the far more frequent smaller pots where mastery of those situations can lead to much greater increases to the bottom line. Well done!

Two apps are good: italki and hellotalk. You put in your languages and the languages you want to learn and it will show you contact info for people that want the opposite. Luckily for us, everyone wants to learn English so we are in high demand.

I also like Pimsleur - it's audio book. It generally provides you with how things are said when two normal people are talking to each other.
