Hey man. That wasn't me who listed out those hands. Regarding ATS, I also see high ATS stats a lot. Maybe they play tighter EP and wider LP. Maybe they steal range from BU or SB. Also, thing is about this GG hud is that the way it used to work, the vpip and pfr stats used to track only the last 100 hands. And I believe maybe it stayed like this while the rest of the stats track hands played with the player.

Yup. And the 3 bet calls they make are even funnier

Sept. 16, 2021 | 5:42 a.m.

Yeah there is. But I might be missing some hands as they only let you download the last 3 months and I think I missed a few months. I'll probably do that today

Sept. 16, 2021 | 5:41 a.m.

Thanks for the insight guys. These are all very good thoughts that are getting me to see the topic from a different angle. I especially think calling with hands that unblock bluffs is an interesting idea worth trying.

That makes sense. Thanks for explaining. My thinking was to fold all the 0ev mixed fold hands since I assumed those are there to prevent being exploitable via light 3 bet. That combined with people's imperfect postflop game had me thinking we could gain EV postflop. Is this a valid though process or are we still losing to an ideal preflop strategy in that case?

Hi guys. I was wondering if there is any merit in overfolding to 3 bets in anonymous fast fold games and rooms where huds aren't allowed (ie: GG rush and cash)? Apart from losing some board coverage, would this theoretically maximize EV assuming the population has ideal 3 bet frequencies?

Sept. 14, 2021 | 6:11 a.m.

Thanks. I thought something was off about that hud. Thing is though. While my sample per person is small, my overall population sample is decently bigger. Meaning everytime I open the hud for different players I see pretty large 3 bet %. I'm wondering if maybe this is sampling error or if people really are going wide with the 3 bets

I have a question for People playing on GG about their built in HUD / tendencies of regs at these stakes. I keep seeing people with absolutely astronomical 3 bet % at NL5 and 10 but I don't know if I can trust the hud or not. More often then not if I were to repeatedly open the hud for different players and sample the 3 bet % the numbers are way too high. I don't know if there is something very off about the hud or if this is an exploitative adjustment a lot of regs are making. I realize the samples are small per player, but collectively it seems the 3b% is high for the entire population. Is this a fault with the HUD or are people in the pool really going ham with the light 3 bets? I've confirmed this with another player and he seems to be seeing the same kinds of numbers.

Thanks for explaining guys :)

haha, me too, my favorite play lately XD. I'm waiting for the moment it deals me K5s UTG, then I will earn a fish label from someone

Hi guys. I notice the NL50 ranges for GTO Wizard are significantly wider than I would have expected for UTG and MP. They were done with monker. I remember seeing other people's preflop solutions from monkersolver and they were similarly wide. This is for an environment with 5% rake and 4bb cap. I remember reading that monker had rake errors but the support team for GTO wizard explained that they used the newest version which corrected this. Yet they look similarly wide to older ranges. Do these ranges seem okay to you guys?

July 20, 2021 | 8:31 a.m.

Thanks guys. You're right in that the rake is higher for the GTO Wizard ranges and the opening ranges are oddly also wider

July 20, 2021 | 8:25 a.m.

Thanks guys, I'll check these out

July 17, 2021 | 12:24 p.m.

Oh wow, thanks, that's really good to know :)

And thanks for the viewer! Just what I was searching for

I've been toying around with the GTO Wizard trial playing against the NL50 solutions and I've noticed significant differences between GTO Wizard and a solver app I use called Solver+. So far it seems GTO Wizard has preferred the more aggressive actions on the river. I'm wondering why there's such a discrepancy? Is it because the rake is higher at NL50?

I also noticed GTO wizard has no restrictions on sizings used vs other presolved libraries. Does this make it a bit less practically applicable? I would have thought they should have narrowed the solutions down to the best sizes in any given spot?

I'm just confused about which solutions to trust, while they are mostly the same EV wise the frequencies differ wildly.

As an example:

My solver says that checking the river here is the highest frequency action (but all other bet sizes are the same EV as checking). But GTO Wizard says the check is a mistake and that I need to overbet the river. Solver+ also prefers a cbet on flop whereas GTOWizard checks

Post | SpankoPita22 posted in NLHE: Old zenith ranges?

Hi guys,

I was wondering if somebody has (or knows where to see) the older zenith poker ranges. They have a new range viewer but unfortunately he only takes BTC which where I am is a pain in the butt to buy. Would really appreciate if if someone who has these could share them ^_^

Thank you

Hi guys,

I've been looking for places where I can play against GTO solutions for free.

So far I've found learn WPT which has a few free ones every now and then, and GTO wizard.

Are there any other ways/places I can practice? I have GTO+ and realzie there is a play vs. the solves feature, does anybody know a place with a free library of solutions I can practice against?

Also this is a bit of a stretch probably, but does anyone have some method of looking up explanations for specific boards and why a solver chooses a certain play (short of asking on forums)?

July 16, 2021 | 12:32 p.m.

I always see you posting on here and being so very helpful, congrats, you really deserve it ^_^. I started off with magic too, still playing it though :p

July 16, 2021 | 12:26 p.m.

Thanks for explaining :) that's what I thought. Interestingly it's even betting non-pair hands huge, like basically most of the range

Hi guys

Can somone explain to me why the solver chooses large flop bet sizes here at 70% frequency? It's betting about 95% pot

(BB 3 bet vs UTG open and call.)

From BB's pov

My first guess is nut advantage on a board where UTG has no sets or 2 pair.

I was wondering if give the choice of even bigger bet sizes, if the solver would choose to overbet?

This just seems like such a wild output.

March 25, 2021 | 5:28 p.m.

Ah that makes sense, thank you for explaining. So slight nut advantage / having more aces shouldn't drive our decision to bet here? I guess we don't have enough better sets. I need to stop thinking about these spots in such a tunnel vision way :)

March 25, 2021 | 5:20 p.m.

Hi guys. I was wondering why this is a high frequency checking spot? We open EP and BU calls.

Just trying to figure out the logic behind this.


March 25, 2021 | 4:32 p.m.

Thanks, most charts seem in tune with this but I do trust MMASherdog so I have no idea how he gets away calling so wide. And apparently it's a solver derived range.

Post | SpankoPita22 posted in NLHE: 4 bet calling range from SB

Hi guys. I was wondering if you are calling suited connectors from SB vs. a BU 4bet?

I was looking at the preflop bible charts and I was very surprised to see how wide sb is calling with all sorts of suited connectors at 100% frequency.

I can see mixing folds in with all the PP and SC being viable, but calling them at 100% seems like burning money.

Feb. 17, 2021 | 6:55 a.m.

Thanks for the explanation :). A bit off topic but wouldn't it be risky to overbet into a J9 flop vs BB or is that mitigated by the width of their range and the fact they would 3 bet JJ?

Post | SpankoPita22 posted in NLHE: Simplifying Solutions

Hi guys. Sometimes I get solutions that are so mixed I don't really know how I would apply or remember them. I was wondering (as an example) how I would go about simplifying this one. Would it make sense to simply bet 40% pot with my entire range? (I multiplied each bet size by the frequency and added them all up and divided by the pot size)

Feb. 2, 2021 | 5:30 a.m.

Thanks, this is a great idea :)! Gonna try this

Where can I find a decent list of strategically unique flops? I would probably start with a smaller number of flops and then get more granular as I get the hang of it

Feb. 1, 2021 | 5:34 p.m.

betsizes and the most commonly taken betting action. As well as a general idea of which hands bet and which check.

Post | SpankoPita22 posted in NLHE: How Do You Study Solves

Hey guy, I'm wondering how you study solver solutions? I don't mean specifically what inputs you use in a solver but rather how you actually remember your hand reviews. If I solve only 5 hands I can barely remember any of it the next day :(

So I was wondering how many hands per day you solve/study and what methods you have for actually remembering everything?
