:30: I want to say I use bigger sizing vs pool who floats the flop here often and get more value out of all the broadway/A high floats. Here I think there calling range is rather inelastic and if they want to float they will and my size will not matter. Not sure if that is a dangerous thought process.
3:40- Yea I think on my chart this ones put as rfi vs weak table only to
5:10- I had it in my head that 44 is too weak for value and too strong for bluff but led down sort of a weird path
715- A bit of an optimistic everything this hand
922- definitely something to look into because my call 3bet/ranges stay the same vs villains I don't adjust well to these numbers
1050: overetting quads? is this props for the over bet haha
21:55 Ya weird one, I posted in zinoms comment about this one to that I probably shouldn't be letting off on the flop here and when I was in a new area of play I really didn't know how to act on the turn when the ace came- my plan was to x/shove or get 2 streets turn and river. With the Ace coming for free turn I go through all the options on replay it seems, thought about block betting small; check call and eventually was so confused I just let it go. weird out of normal play hand.
23:35 Ya I even thought that in game especially when small blind 3bet and I came along anyways; better to do it myself.

Cheers RaoulFlush; Great feedback just like last time. Blown away with both responses and that people are willing to go through this hour with me. I really appreciate it

:48 Ya agree in the moment thought best as call but definitely makes sence to bet
8:20- Looks like there is a least less of these mistake folds pre
17:17 fair point! In the first bit here I trapped twice and both times got the worst free cards come off.
21:27 Yea I am not sure why I opted for x/shove here definitely not standard
27:35 88 in small vs min flat this as a defend?
36:29 ah yes I believe you said last time to iso to 6bb vs limps?
48:10 ya not sure what slow playing demon took a hold of me this day
53:24 looks like I hovered over bet and then went for 85% instead. This is definitely a spot to pole and over bet though I have no merge river value bets thanks!

Cheers again zinom1 it blows me away that you are willing to take time and go through this I hope you enjoyed it as well!

Post | Scoopkid posted in NLHE: New video! review part2

About the post and history

Last week I had posted on here asking if anyone would help look over pt4 with me and help me find what I am doing wrong; I got a lot of positive feedback from you awesome people here and also on request posted a 45min video that I absolutely butchered the filming of. Either way the 15 mins of usable video brought out a lot of leaks and interesting points and I am still so thankful for those that watched!

When I posted last week Sunday I had played 50k hands at 25z losing at 6bb/100- after looking into preflop ranges and adjusting some things over the week from Monday to Friday I played 14k hands and won at 8.5bb/100! Obviously smaller sample of winning but excited to be positive!

Why Im here today

So for the first hour of today took a recording of the play to post a usable video to update. I took yesterday off as I have been playing everyday for a month and my first hour back felt quite bad actually and I found myself very aware of people eventually watching this....I found it brought out a bit of play anxiety and second guessing trying to play what I thought you people would want me to be doing rather than how I play. After the first 15mins or so this definitely went away for the most part

Anyways thanks for those of you who care and take the time to tear apart the video; I have zero expectations for what comes from this just as last time but you guys seem to blow my expectations of help out of the water!

Cheers and enjoy!

These were my thoughts as well.

I was suprised however at the 3b by AJ on this board as well would that mean im playing too passively in this spot?

My thoughts would be I want to be trapping on a board that favors me that villain has somehow found a raise on.

July 25, 2020 | 1:29 a.m.

I play the same with a call on the river.

villain can easily be value shoving river with worse in my opinion

they seem pretty nit like with 3.5bb but that would have to include at least JJs right? and vs MP open/call 3bet Im shoving JJ and TTs for sure as well as some bluffs!

July 25, 2020 | 1:18 a.m.

Should be a 3bet/call 4bet easilly.

Looks like they are competent to at least be 4betting with the best hands but also some bluffs and maybe overdoing it!

In my opinion we 3bet call 4bet and play check/shove vs big sizings and check raise vs small sizing on all boards that exclude A/K on them, sometimes you get snapped by aces but you'll often get a street or two from bluffs and sometimes get it in on the flop vs AK anyway.

I would also add I opt to call flop MORE vs villains with high cbet flop and high cbet turn otherwise if they give up turn too often with bluffs they see 5 cards for one bet.

Hope this helps, cheers.

Thanks HawksWin; the 3b stuff is going to be a focus today I just checked out the charts and I know I am missing a lot of these opportunities.

Interesting point about specifically SB/MP river calling frequencies. I'm not sure what to look into to solve this error but good to be conscience that its happening.

Ya BU and SB RFI are embarrassingly low, That has been my biggest take-away from this in a lot of spots to just wake up and stop the auto-pilot folding.

Thanks for the tips and for taking the time to look and I appreciate the deep strategy you went into for SB vs BB hopefully I can take this from here straight to the green line on pt :)

I think assuming villains are betting and not giving up on river all the time is a dangerous way of thinking; Like if every time you had a close call but folded because "well they will just pressure me on later streets so may as well give up now" I think thats giving villains too much credit too often; make them play tough and aggressive. That being said I am still not sold on THIS particular turn call.

July 21, 2020 | 6:37 p.m.


I was hesitant to post this one because it did feel like a massive punt on the river. I was pretty confident in all the actions leading up to river and I don't think I've ever stationed off for double starting with TTs.

My timebank had 5s on turn that I used up and zero on river? I've never had this issue on stars before but my QUICK thinking on river was that I was going to be shown AA/KK and Broadways that barrel; some of which making flushes most not.

But in reality I just don't think players are playing this aggressively to merit this kind of call down; hand is vs someone with high vpip/3bet and AF but I agree that river is a fold.

Was called a nit yesterday so wanted to check in that I am not just someone who over folds a potential standard call river,

Cheers thanks again RaoulFlush and zinom1

Comment | Scoopkid commented on Pt4 review!

I am blown away with how much positive attention this post got can't tell you all how please I am with this.

5:24- 88- Yes I do lean to cbet range here as an auto but great point being too dynamic; I definitely paused before betting I remember this one. I guess any hand I am protecting against probably c/r and Im left behind with a lot of hands.
7:15 : I am...not sure. I think In the moment the thought was to protect vs A5hh like hands but this is a clear hand check back call most rivers so I agree with too thin for value; definite overplay.
910: thankyou! I choose the overbet for most double paired boards in my favor.
1115: Ah yes I looked into the 3bet BBvsSB part of ranges today actually and was definitly over flatting these spots.

14:03: definitly worth looking over cbets for future and not auto betting boards that shift equity balance back over to villain, cheers.

Again thank you very much means a lot that you took time to look over some hands. Excited to see this Henry Lister video with you!

Comment | Scoopkid commented on Pt4 review!

1:55 T6 interesting that I snap folded that one; really trying to slow down those BU choices
2:00- Yes miss-click I saw that one to when I was uploading and was like oh no.
2:53- would normally open 76o hopefully MP opened to 3x this one I believe
5:45- Good point on 3bet I know better to pole here and go big common error on my behalf- and ya another weird snap fold with an open that I know better; really trying to tune into these opens.

Thats really annoying with the zoom in; would of had hotkeys for others scenes turned on unfortunate.

I really appreciate the time taken to look at the start bits of this with me I'll attempt a bettor recording in the future maybe with some audio to get a sense of where my head-space is.

I think the biggest take-away so far is just open my eyes pre and don't auto pilot fold these frine like hands. I did drop from 4 to 2 tables recently because I did feel like this was happening.

Cheers mate.

First attempt at this! Kept it down to 45mins to not have an overwhelming amount of content and I didn't see before I hit record but I had cutoff the part with the bet slider including so unable to see my mulling over bet sizes but overall I think this video captures at least the start of a session. zinom1

Comment | Scoopkid commented on Pt4 review!

Thank zinom1; My flats IP come from mostly hands like TTs,QJs and ATs and hands that want to keep villains EP range wide; I am trying to expand the bottom side of CO, HJ, BU opens currently seem to miss a lot of opens and something I am currently watching closely; I try to follow the RYE charts for opening ranges.

As for SB Im not sure where that flatting comes from I try and implement a 100% R/F strategy.

Starting a zoom session now to record to be looked into.

Hi all!

Looking for a kind guide to help me improve at 25z

Losing at 6bb/100 over 50k hands.

Struggling to improve and feel like I am in a spot of I don't know what I don't know spot.

Weather this is just a friendly grinder reviewing or if a coach is out there for hire both are appreciated.

Cheers and happy grinding

Post | Scoopkid posted in Chatter: Party Poker My game Report cards!

I guess.....What do we think!
Curious if people should be taking it serious or is it meant to make us feel good by giving us good undeserved grades?

Any crushers out there with a good sample of success that get 99% on the report card?

Im rather new to party poker MTTs (50k hands in thus far) But I've been given the Pro rating with an 83%.....should I feel good about this?

I like the ease of use so far looking through the report card and the comments makes me double think why it would be giving me such an output- an interesting one was turn AF was low but turn cbet was perfect to the report card. Opens a new door of c/r on turn? Or potentially calling down too light....Lots to think about as always!

Cheers, thanks for any feedback or sharing of your own experiences!
