Hey Tariq Haji ! Thanks for the nice content, really enjoyed the video.
I did marked a couple of spots (most of them pre flop) that I'd like to hear your opinion. Fwiw the preflop sims I have are all for 200nl rake. You think it would change a lot on a 50nl enviroment? On one side rake is higher but on the other hand players are much worse which should allow us to VPIP a bit more as well, right?
Anyway, these are the spots:
1:58 --> Q6s seems like a fine OR on the CO?
4:58 --> K6s also seems fine to open on the HJ?
6:37 --> QTo fast fold on the CO?
8:23 --> J8o fast fold on the SB as well. Think it would be the bottom of my RFI range, fold J7. Wug?
19:44 --> ATo UTG. Also have this as a full freq open on my sim, but you folded saying you think its a bit too loose
21:22 --> Sick fold. Think I'd always jam our hand vs SB's 4B and also think I have a very diferent perception on SB's range. When fish cold calls the 3B on the BTN, even tho I agree with you that he will almost never fold to SB's 4B I still think its a pretty decent spot to be aggressive with some hands.
Your BB 3B range should still be relatively wide and BTN could have all sorts of non sense just putting ''dead'' money there which makes it very attractive to 4B imo. I also don't really think we should care about BTN not folding vs the 4B on SB's shoes since he has such a week range that we will be doing very well against, and also by 4B and knocking the BB out we lower the SPR a lot with the BTN making our positional disadvantage less important and playing a HU pot vs a fish with a super wide range.
+ Our blockers are pretty amazing in the sense of reducing SB's chance of having AA and KK. You also said that you don't even think he has QQ in his 4B range which seemed a bit weird since imo even JJ is like for sure 4B 100% when BTN cold calls (not trying to be results oriented but he had 99, so that should give us an idea)
24:13 --> Would always defend Q8s BB vs HJ even tho facing a 3x, why you think we should be folding?
32:27 --> A9o fine iso on the BTN vs fish limping on the HJ?
33:47 --> Defend A5o BB vs CO 2.5x? Would fold A6o but A5o seems fine
36:22 --> I think if we do want to ''protect'' our checking range I would still never check Q9s specifically. Think our combo having top pair + gutshot and being pretty protected on connected turns just makes it way too strong not to bet, villain also has way to many worse top pairs/mid pairs/ pairs + draws that we dominate etc... I would check AQ before Q9 if I'd have to choose

40:02 --> A3s would also pure open from EP and fold A2s

This is monker response LJ vs HJ 3B 40bbs deep fwiw: https://gyazo.com/a07fcc7a8034fa13206600a679ba7f7f
I would not focus on this type of spots tho since at the end of the day you have JJ for 40bbs and if he has you beat is just a cooler. Vs some nitty guys could make a case that the EV of flatting goes up but imo this is not where our EV will come from

Being a player who is transitioning now to PLO with zero experience I think it would be very valuable for me to get the sims myself. Not to blindly follow the solver, but just to develop a rough sense and idea of a starting point for pf spots. I've been watching a lot of the PLO RIO videos and a lot of the times I could see myself like thinking I'd VPIP x hand utg and the coach says its a clear fold on the CO for ex :)

Hey guys, thanks for the feedback! Just double checked the price and for all spots 6-max PLO 100bbs they are charging $399. You think thats ool Richard Gryko ? Also, do you have any indication on where to buy the sims at a more ''fair'' price?

Hey! With the goal of improving my PLO preflop game and going more in depth on open/flatting/3betting ranges, I'm interested in buying the MonkerSolver solution and also looking for people who might be interested in as well so we can split the costt
The price is around $500 for the whole solution. Let me know if you're interested! :)
