I played regularly NL25 ~ NL50 back in 2009-2010, and quit poker for nearly 10 years; Since I had to study "everything" that changed since, I found this to be the best path of learning to catch up with the modern game.

It covers pf ranges, blind x blind situations, polarized x merged strategies, what do to regarding cbet / double barrel / 3 bet frequencies and defense, etc...

But each video is around 15-18 minutes (total 30 videos), so don't expect hours of in-deep analyses of each topic, but it provides a solid core strategy.
It doesn't mention MTT phases (shove-fold / ICM) , but the general content is valid and solid for poker in general, what I saw as it's foundation is the same that I see other pros applying at NL 100-200 videos.

The course also gives one month of essential membership, so I could watch other videos to better understand a certain topic, and I mostly used it to watch the pros play live zoom, and see how they played compared to the strategy or reacted to certain situations out of the course.
For $50 (considering it grants one $25 essential month included) it was totally worth.

Why checking flop? Couldn't we bet 50-60% flop (maybe win right away), if paid, check behind turn (to induce) and call their bluffs river?
As played, I don't see them making 2 bets and losing, they could even outplay your mirrored AK.

Hello, I've purchased and studied the From the Ground Up Course, and at Episode 19 (Float betting the flop); I understood the different ranges and scenarios we could Float / stab the flop.

But at what sizing should we do it ?

For example, HJ opens 3bb, hero on BU calls with 9Ts / 88 or speculative stuff.

Flop comes whatever T64 that favors our range and the PFR decides to check.
According to the course, we would take this chance to bet for value or as a bluff on certain draws / combos. Okay...
But how much ? A unique sizing as 33% as a cbet ? 50-60% ? A large bet as selective 70% ??

Or should we use two different sizes for bluff / value ? (I don't think so, but if yes, why would I float bet bigger for my sets and small for my weak draws?)

Thank you,

Which additional software do you use ? (I see RNG / history of past streets / % bets are always ready before you click)
