At 24:49, I think pio exclusively likes big bets on these kind of textures. Reason for using this sizing?

I guess the conclusion is, the guy bluffing can always change his blockers for bluffing, so as a caller it's more important to block his value hands? Thanks Krzysztof, brilliant explanation.

Great video !
Probably the only video on RIO which covers this crucially important topic. And extremely well presented.
One request I have if you could make a video explaining the concepts of this video mathematically that would be extremely useful .
Thanks again :)

Excellent video !
At 34:10 , while discussion bluffing you mentioned we should prefer to bluff with an 8 or 9 in our hand, to block our oppinents best bluffcatchers but my doubt is how are those hands the best bluffcatchers when they block the only way we find bluffs as well? How should be go about spots like these.

Thanks a lot man. Makes sense

Comment | Shekhar commented on Nut Advantage

One doubt that crept in my mind. The person with a polarized range will be able to retain the entire pot only when he has more valuebets than bluffs right? Becuse If he has more bluffs he will have to giveup some of them.

Sorry for bugging you again and again man. But can you please break it down in a more elaborate way. how does IP not have enough bluff combos?

Comment | Shekhar commented on Nut Advantage

Makes a lot of sense. Thanks.
But can you please elaborate this concept with respect to this example ?

Hi was watching this Diago ramadiz video on cbetting your whole range, in which he talks about how having nuts in our range protects our bluffcatchers. It intuitively makes some sense to me, but I still haven't figured out the maths behind it. Can someone please help me understand this slide from the video, with some quantitative inputs. Thanks.

Nice video, peter! At 36:13, reason for using a smaller sizing? I think this board purely prefers big bets. And i have seen you use a big sizing on 732 earlier, when you were actually deeper( so more smaller bets should be used, as opponent has a nut advantage? ). Some exploitative reasons for doing so? You also mentioned this board is drawy, which should further make you wanna bet big right? To reduce the no of streets.

Post | Shekhar posted in NLHE: Blockers

Hi guys,
I ran a pio sim for MP vs BB on Ad4s4c rainbow. My question is why does 109dd has lower equity than other 109 suited combos. I have given all the A9
and A10 combos to BB. So in terms of blocking value all the 109 are the same. But since BB has all the Ax of spades and clubs, there is high probability of BB backdooring a higher flush when we backdoor a flush. So shouldn't it be the opposite ?

Exceptional video! Thanks.

Damn i dont know why i calculated AA and KKs combos as 6. Anyway makes sense :) thanks

March 1, 2019 | 12:22 a.m.

Makes sense. I haven't pioed this spot. But intuitively it felt like we have like 7 value combos ( I assume you will mix checks with QQ on the turn), So if only shove AK combos avoiding diamonds and clubs, as I assume he also folds fds to a turn jam. We have 4 combos + AKcc, so even if our bluffs have some equity. If we shove more than this, wouldn't we be over bluffing ?

Feb. 28, 2019 | 11:04 p.m.

Great first video man!
At 37:56, isn't having diamonds actually a bad thing here? Obviously K of diamonds and A in general is good, but we block his AKdd, AJdd type hands which will fold turn, so i guess all other AK suited combos are better than this one?

Post | Shekhar posted in NLHE: Cbet sizing and equity advance

Hi guys,
How is our cbet sizing affected by our equity advantage and our nut advance? I am having hard time navigating through many flops, and really able to establish the relation between the three.
Also does position also factor into our cbet sizing? For example, I ran pio on a texture KJ2, in a 3bet pot with same ranges when we are IP, and when we are OOP. When we are OOP, it exclusively prefers big bets on this board, while while we are IP, it primarily prefers small bets, with a mix of bigger bets? What might be the intuition behind this? Thanks

Hi Daniel great video, my doubt is, how do some hands have higher ev than the pot itself.

Feb. 26, 2019 | 11:46 a.m.

Great video daniel, your theory videos are the best. But don't you think the title is slighly misleading, and should be more like how the stackdepth affects our checkraising frequency? Thanks a lot though :)

Feb. 21, 2019 | 1:44 p.m.

Hi Daniel, Great video
at 16:32, actually kq with a club is preferring a small sizing, while kq without is still using the bigger one. Why is that? And that is something I have observed in lot of similar spots in pio. What might be the reason for it?

Feb. 21, 2019 | 10:30 a.m.

Hi paul, great video!
At 13:29, i think pio prefers a big sizing on this texture. Any particular reason for using a smaller one? That might be the reason why we are facing so many raises.

Feb. 19, 2019 | 8:03 p.m.

Pio really prefers a bet of around 80% pot on this texture, irrespective of ehich position we open from.

Feb. 18, 2019 | 3:46 p.m.

Amazing video daniel. A 100bb analysis on a similar spot please :)

Feb. 15, 2019 | 3:28 p.m.

Thanks a lot ryan. Really helpful :)

Feb. 15, 2019 | 8:11 a.m.

Hi apotheosis great video!
At 11:07, I have always seen you using small sizings on these textures. But from my experience with pio,it seems to only prefer big sizings. Is this sizing an exploitative approach ?

Feb. 14, 2019 | 7:03 p.m.

Which would mean we don't have to size down even if we think our range doesn't have bluffs ? But in that case, opponent can just always fold right?

Feb. 14, 2019 | 1:26 p.m.

Great video, Sam!Really improved on my understanding of bet sizings :)

In future can you include some videos in which you elaborate how our blocker effects effect our decisions while calling, folding and barreling wrt pio. I personally have a lot of issues with, and I think a lot of others do, aa well. And that is a something that I haven't found in any of the RIO videos.
Thanks :)

Comment | Shekhar commented on Calling 3 Bets Review

Hi tyler, exceptional video
At 35:41, why did you suggest calling with 77s with a spade? And in general why are pocket pairs with a spade higher ev?

Feb. 13, 2019 | 5:38 a.m.

Hi Mark is the excel available on a link or smthn where we could download it ?
