Very nice video - and graph too! You made me chuckle quite a bit with all of your "SAUCE would play that, I won't!" comments :D

I think you have me mistaken for someone else

Yeah, thought so. Thanks

1h 46min into tournament. Pretty much all regs, except for possibly SB, but he was running at like 8/2 after 52 hands. Opener was playing 20/16 after 125 hands, so not very meaningful to show positional stats. 



If the circumstances were just slightly altered by being a bit more shallow or a couple spots to the left, it's pretty much a no-brainer shove. But I haven't done my theory homework on tourneys, so I'm curious to hear what you guys have to say. Fist-pump shove or very close?

Hey guys. Thanks a lot for the replies. There's no substitute for experience, so I'll do as you say and log a lot of hands. 

So far I've gone from being skeptical if I like the game, to a feeling of newborn enthusiasm over a game where I see so many possibilities. This is going to be an interesting process.

I've finally decided to make the leap and start playing this weird game where you get four cards. 

My background in PLO is maybe about 8-10k hands of lowstakes plo online lifetime, and also some higher stakes ROE in a live setting. Even though PLO has just been played very rarely in between the nlhe grind, I've still watched most of Phil Galfond's PLO videos (both bfp and here). 

I want to get a better feel for the game and see where it can take me if I work hard on theory and analyze my play - basically the same approach as I've had to nlhe. So I have now decided to switch completely over to PLO for a while.

Last two days I've played about 3,2k hands of plo and ran a lot of hands through PPT to get a feel for how equities of different spots run together. When playing though, it's actually been preflop decisions I've been mulling the most over so far. I don't have well defined ranges and end up doing what "feels" right. If I've understood it correctly, PLO is still so far from a game theory optimal solution, that you end up with a lot of different, but winning playing styles. 

This got a little bit long-winded, but over to my question; How should I go about constructing fundamentally sound preflop ranges? In what neighbourhood should my openraise from different positions be? What about the gap between VPIP and PFR? Intuitively it feels like it can be wider than in nlhe, depending on the opposition ofc. 

I'd be very thankful for answers to this, or if you can point me in the right direction as to where I can find this information, it would be much appreciated.

Haha, yeah that's me! Used to play 5/10-25/50 on party, but decided to take a bachelor's degree before it got too late. Done with that now, so back to focusing on poker again. Who are you?

Thanks a lot for this opportunity, Parker. I appreciate all the feedback you've given me, and I'm glad I decided to send footage to you - even though it opens up my game. I'm not really worried about that because it forces me to improve, and also because I'm in the process of implementing some big changes to my game overall. 

I'd recommend anyone to send in footage for review.

Also, I just wanted to add one thing:

Reasoning behind the QTs flat otbtn vs utg open (at around 37min mark) was because of the possible weak player in the sb playing 59/39 or something after 28 hands. Would you still rather 3B in this spot?

Hey Parker, thanks for reviewing my footage. My avatar says: "Always gangsta!" 

Just to clarify the first big pot; He didn't bet turn. He cb flop, check/called turn. 

I always check the pop-up for the specific position of the 3b stat/co open or btn open etc. I never make a play based on what the total [insert stat] says. I just feel like the hud gets a bit messy with too many stats, but I should probably fix that. 

Unfortunately I played sub-optimal in some spots, you mentioned them all, except I think you missed an unnecessary 4B bluff that I made w/K7o which I should've just folded to the 3B. I probably was a bit affected of the fact that I was recording. 

I think the 2nd half of the footage had some interesting spots as well, so it would be awesome to see that part too.

Very good video that personally was perfect for me at this point in my life.
