just cold call preflop . all goes wrong from preflop.
and this hands just check back, it is not clear valuebet and not need to protect with so many BD , and good player can check /shove AKK5/AQQ2 bdfd and vs your hand that will be fucking disaster

Why we should raise or 3bet oop ?
- get initiation on the flop
- decrease SPR. Opponent IP have smaller Edge if spr lower, because can do less big bets.
What should be a good ratio between VPP in SB and BB ?
SB: 85-100%, BB ~65%, if vs bad player 75%

What bb/100 can obtain a good player in PLO HU 50 and PLO HU 100 ?
15+ I think, on this limits pretty easy to get 10-15bb\100
2) How many different players do you suggest to play against at the same time ? Is there someone who play against 2 or 3 different players concurrently and make profit ?
It depends from you and how tough is your opponents (for you as well:)

1) How many hands are necessary to understand if a player is a winning
player on a certain level?
I think from 5 to 30 hands you must be sure in it with 80% freq, usually unprofessional players do stupid things really fast.

hello, guys. I get many letters in January, but didn't answer because I'm not interested in RIO's VODs and threads anymore, because feels like all discussions here on really low level and found my own way to work on game.
My price changed now to 300usd per 60-90min, because my skill increased for last half year.
Can make discount 10% for 10 lessons
For guys who need help with transition from NLH to PLO, price will be 150$ for first 5 lessons.
There is my last results after I changed all my thought process. Now it is 16evbb on 200-1k, and I still know that doing a lot of mistakes.
If you are interested in coaching better to send me email:
p.s. I already stop playing 200, and if find good additional rooms will stop playing 400-600 soon too. And after that price will be increased, so hurry up:)

I dont mid to push your hand, because you blocks top and middle set.
Probably if you had K or A in your hand better to just call and wait for not flush runnout.
But when you dont have it, there is too much more scary cards, so better to push it.

wow. Copernicus ass so on fire... Probably you are one of that type of guy who can come in to Louis Vuitton and cry that their clothes very expensive.
Man, I will tell you the truth, looks like it will be hard for you to understand, but try... if you dont like product or it is expensive for you, you have a choice to not buy it.
I think everybody can sell everything they want and make the price on it which they want to. PLZ stop telling to anybody how thay should make their bussiness.

Hello, Boys and Girls. I got few lessons from Cory which was based materials for book, and now I get my personal copy.
PLO is game with a lot of tough spots and this book will help you to understand 3bet pots too much better.
After learning it, everything becomes more structured and understandable. And now I feels more confident in 3bet pots.

I think you shoud not bet the flop or not bet the turn. Because your hand doesnt have any redraw = dont like a lot of turn and river runnouts. And on this turn runnout you will like only non flush unercards, it is 8 ruunots only maybe, 7 non flush is good for you too. But I feels like if you dont like more than 50% runnouts and you OOP= dont bet.
River I feels tough, but think it is ok to x\f even so strong hand without blockers to his FD, because he called preflop from CO, and probably he should have more PP and Axxx rundowns than ~QJ9, especially in game where your pot raise is like 19/2=9.5bb, his range must be more like Axxx.
But if it is lose fish, it can be easy check call.

easy fold preflop. it is very bad hand, you need at least As995 or some conected cards
Just call flop vs 95% players
Should be easy fold turn because it is hard for him to have blocker after you raising flop but easy to have nut flush

I can add that calling can be better when you are IP or with SPR ~4.5+.
I cannot agree with Nick Johnson that this spot is close for x\c or x\r, for my opinion we should stackoff here vs 97% villains.
If we x\c and on half of deck he will push out our pair+wrap? If turn comes brick 3 or king. We just fold so strong hand?
But what will happened if we hit our 2 pair or straight? we almost never get paid enough even if we create donk betting range on turn.
as for x\r: we have FE, in pot 75$ and we are risking 175$ only, we have good EQ and we can realize to the maximum OOP.
In easy way, I see a lot of arguments for x\r, but still dont any reasons why x\c can give me bigger advantage vs opponent or higher EV

'what do you think about that, what hands if any should he be leading?"
This board has a lot of draws, so I think he prefered more to focus on his check raising range than DB. Although if he decides to bet, frequency should be very low, something like polarized 3-5%: mixing weak 5, 7, oesd, with some strong nutty hands.
"On the other hand I have excellent blockers to his straights so why not bluff raise to balance our T9 value combos?'
I dont think that is excellent situation for bluff raise, I think it is ok for bluffcatch vs good reg.
Better to float turn with some 99-TT, even naked, this float is crazy but works.
"Or what other hands would you choose to bluff there and what hands would you bluffcatch?"
I think you construct your bluffcatching range very well. 2pair like 54+ blocking his possible straight draws which made straight on river is ok
"Also do you think that he has check raising range there? Rather is he ever checking on the river?"
I think x\r range here vs not fish guy will be losing value vs bet pot.
you really give me somethink like Jx on turn and J8 as valuebet river with this betsizing?
I think valuebetting river with top two pair on that board is suicide and pot betting turn with that type of hand is terrible too

x\shoving should be too much better, because here a lot of runnouts where villain can you bluff out your equity , and this is very bad because you will have it a lot.
In simple way your hand is strong on flop, but very often will not be like that on many turns.

I'm not sure but looks like quite lose preflop raise for OOP vs 2 guys, but if you have postflop advantage or they are passive postflop or not 3beting, or BB is very tight is calling, it can be probably OK.
So if you raise that hand preflop, I think this guys are not supper bluffy, and this spot doesn't bluffy for BB range. and CO can have here AK easily. Doesn't looks like you have any FE here. So ch\c + donking good rivers should be the best strategy here.
