We made a deal with upswing and they are handling payments. So unfortunately I can't give out free trials any more

Guys, nobody defends that much anymore. The best players at high stakes are way tighter. I would be wary of older content

I think the main takeaway from that video is to look at your EV as a % of the pot. So like pot calling IP for a few bb in ev is pretty shitty in a 3bet pot where the pot is massive. And our equity * the pot is much greater than a few bb. It is still same thing as EV. It is just a fresh way to judge the payoffs of different actions.

We made the PLO Matrix, a PLO starting hand chart based on 6max monker outputs. Everybody here knows poker and the importance of playing well preflop so I don't need to reiterate. The magic of the Matrix is using 2 2-card no limit grids stacked on top of each other to give us 4 cards of information.
It is kind of hard to explain in text so here are the shill links:

From reading 500zreg's post I can tell he is articulate and extremely absorbent of poker content. He's watched more videos and read more books than almost anyone I can think of. He understands poker and game theory and he explains things well. And he is very organized and good at presentation.

I have had a change of heart. I apologize for calling Jonna102 a scammer. I have had the chance to play with him recently at 100z and after seeing his game firsthand I think he should be allowed to sell his coaching packages... because that is the only way to keep him in these games :)

By your definition nobody is a scammer. I could sell you a fake rolex but say it's real and charge you as much as it normally costs. But by your definition it's your fault for buying it, I didn't make you buy it. He is scammer because he is selling something that he can't deliver at a price that can't be justified. I am assuming that RIO wants to be a trusted brand. Letting a scammer advertise here while he is given some non-zero amount of legitimacy because he is a mod, is a problem. A possible solution is they could review advertisements to see who is qualified or not. To me the simplest solution is no ads, let the scammers scam somewhere else. Also this will come up on google when people search jonna102, which is helpful for people trying to research before they buy.
We can probably guess why Tom Chambers works with him, but lets keep the thread on topic :)

A little over a year ago he playing 25z what seemed like full time on stars. Then it looked like he sold some coaching packages and moved up to 500z then probably busted his roll and disappeared for a while and now is trying to run it up again.
I don't have a problem with him playing games he isn't winning in or even offering overpriced scam coaching. The issue for me is that he is a mod here on RIO so it gives him a position of authority and it legitimizes him. I think RIO shouldn't allow him to advertise on the forums because it calls into question the integrity of the site when they endorse somebody like him.
Maybe we can have a no non-pro coaching advertisement rule? Or maybe a coaching specific subforum where people can post what they are offering and we can leave reviews? I'm not asking that we get rid of all scam coaches in poker because that would be impossible. I'm just asking for RIO to take some responsibility and not allow scammers, especially those on their mod team, to prey on the newer more susceptible players that come here wanting to learn.

This is a really good example of a death of EV video spot. Where shoving the flop probably makes us a few bb but I think we can do way better for this hand and for our whole range if we x and plan to call flop and x and plan to call turn. As played you might as well just shove river, I think. You would have to look in Pokerjuice to get an actual answer.

Just play the same range you do for EP then you have 27.7bb from all non blind positions. But actually it is probably a sample size thing. If you're curious about stats check out Leszek Badurowicz's video http://www.runitonce.com/poker-training/videos/a-complete-guide-to-plo-stats/

I think the mistake in this hand was cbetting. It doesn't really do anything. You don't make people fold any equity that they wouldn't fold later and you don't get any value by getting them to call with worse. Especially if BB is ridiculously loose passive, trying to get him to fold an A is a losing play.

If you want a specific answer, or any answer at all really, you will probably have to be more specific about the rules of the game. You're missing things like stack sizes, betting rules, how many streets, if hand values are static or dynamic, etc.
Oct. 16, 2015 | 4:18 a.m.
You can't escape us low stakes guys in here. But against the general population of PLO10 I'm basically betting a strong linear range on all streets going for some of that sweet value. This hand is definitely strong enough for a cbet and needs some protection. Not many regulars are going to try and exploit a weak checking range. Also betting the river seems a little ambitious I don't know how often he is folding better but if you really want to, you will probably need to pot it.

He is most likely stabbing pretty wide here so I'm guessing the c/r would work often enough. Straights still make up a large portion of his range though, just not as many nut straights so you will have to barrel often. As a default in this spot I would cbet but if is stabs a lot when checked to c/r a wide range would probably be more +EV.
