Hi All

Is it possible to add a tool into vision where we can upload hand histories and the software tells us where our biggest leaks are. So as a wild example, HUPLO and we are leading 100% of wheel boards in three bet pots OOP and the solver says we should never lead them. This would help you plug the biggest leaks you have quickest. If Vision can't do this, do we know of any software that can?

Very good content

Amazing video thank you Nuno Alvarez

Mega video Luke Johnson, although I felt stressed out for you with those time banks. If you were starting out now, knowing the landscape of 6-max versus HU, where would you spend your time and energy?

Sorry, sure 11:25 Luke Johnson

Great vid @Clanty. With the KT hand, which hands are better river bets than this one? Seems like one for sure that would be jamming. If you get to the river using the BCB line, what does KTss do against a shove?

Really enjoyed that Richard Gryko thank you

Ben Sulsky Doug literally said you that you are the smartest guy to ever have played the game a year after your heads up match, then Phil Galfond said on a podcast recently that yourself, Ben86 and Berri were the only players he would refuse action on in the HUPLO challenge he played last year. You must be able to remember broadly remember what was going on across those timelines :-) Even the some information on the state of the games now, why you never transitioned to high stakes tourneys like Ike or why you never went to Macao to play in the juicy games when Durrr did. Also who your friends are in Poker. There are many of us on the site that would love to hear about all this stuff. You could even do an old school 'Well" type thing that all the legends did on 2+2 back in the day but in video format, where people submit questions.

Ben Sulsky I would love to get a documentary type video from yourself, showing interesting hands about what the game was like pre Black Friday, post Black Friday when you were considered the top 5 players alive across all the different games, going all the way until you stopped playing professionally. It would be amazing to see your databases across those times, how stats have changed and who the best players you faced were year-by-year across different games. It would also be amazing to hear your understanding of the modern ecosystem at high stakes including tournament poker, live cash and app games. As one of your biggest fans, something like that would be one of the most engaging pieces of content that could be produced. Hope you are enjoying life and thanks for all the amazing content over the years

I think it is absolutely incredible that you can still crush the toughest regular running NL cash game in the world whilst not working as hard at the game as you did four or five years ago. I hope that came across as complimentary as it was meant. Really appreciate you still producing great content!

Would you be able to tell us what the colours mean so that we can understand any adjustments from GTO that you make versus different player types?

April 17, 2020 | 5:36 p.m.

Is scripting for turns and rivers possible?

April 1, 2020 | 3:32 p.m.

I am up for this, play 6 max 100 Zoom at the moment and would like to get involved in a study group

March 28, 2020 | 7:24 p.m.

Thanks Twinskat, will have a go at running them now via script

Post | Spelly89 posted in Chatter: Looking for some coaching

I am looking for some private coaching for 6 max and HU NLHE. I am a recreational player looking to improve, and currently play 100 Zoom on Stars and Party. I have played the game on and off for nearly 15 years, always had a huge interest in its nuances and am an extremely competitive person. I am from the UK and we are undergoing a state of lockdown currently, so now seems as good a time as any to improve my win rate.

March 24, 2020 | 1:47 p.m.

Hi Guys

Sorry I have been busy over the last few days, but now the UK is pretty close to full lockdown I will be able to spend some more time on here. Here are the screenshots for the T22 board. I look forward to hearing back on this.

I did script them all yes, how can I go back and cluster them together?

Twinskat, I thought the 184 flop subset would be the most comprehensive way to study, but could be wrong obviously.

March 24, 2020 | 1:13 p.m.

I use EC2 for Pio as I am an apple user. It was a bit fiddly at first but now I have scripts running constantly. You need to get enough storage to save the trees, then download them to Dropbox. Each tree for BTN vs BB in two bet pots are 4GB, so it’s better just to run a few flops at a time and then upload to Dropbox. Let me know what help you need

Post | Spelly89 posted in NLHE: Piosolver shortcuts with KRab

Kevin Rabichow has tweeted saying that he wants to give back in some way because he feels privileged to be able to earn from home whilst others are self-isolating. Obviously, it would be great if other RIO members could contribute to this thread too. I tweeted him asking about Piosolver short cuts, as I am currently studying the 184 flops that cover most of the game. I have started BTN vs BB, six max with a 2.5x raise and call. What I would like to learn from this thread is whether there are any shortcuts to certain types of boards where BTN or BB have massive range advantages, and some lines that don't play out in the 50-200NL Zoom pools that Piosolver suggests are optimal. Here is an example of something that has really stood out so far that I am starting to experiment with in the games:

Js 6s 6d

BB check calls flop block bet (most common line by both players). BB should lead 20% - 33% of range vs BTN on turn, with spade turns being the highest percentage of leads.

Tc 2s 2d

BB check calls flop block bet (most common line by both players). BB should lead between 0% (Ax) and 50% (Tx) of range vs BTN on turn.

I haven't played much heads up lately, but from the little volume I have seen this doesn't seem like a thing either at 50-200 HUNL.

What other interesting spots aren't getting implemented what other boards should be studied next, where people are making mistakes. It feels like the A54 flops with K turns seem to be played pretty well by the regulars on Pokerstars.

Thanks for this Sauce!

Just one question from me, even though I would love to ask a bunch. Which player in each format (or combined) has gotten the better of you over the course of your career, if any?


Dec. 16, 2019 | 10:24 p.m.

Any idea on what time the client will be available to download? Keen to support this venture but have a fairly busy day ahead

Hey Phil Galfond

Merry Xmas

On the T932 hand, what bluff/semi bluff hands take this line? If we call flop with a hand like this versus his three betting range, what hands should we raise with to put pressure on his AA/KK that aren't sets? If we only do so with say, T987 with hearts or AT87 with hearts, it feels like we aren't raising enough on a board that should favour our range. Also, as played, how would the bluffing part of our range differ versus a range that full pots both turn and river? Are there any tools that you can use to help balance these ranges for all different sizes in play other than solvers? I find in these spots I get lost and ending up playing my hand too face up. As a small and mid stakes recreational player, I end up getting owned far too often against the good regs when ranges start to get narrower and thinking hands through become much more complex. Videos from yourself/Cory/Richard have really helped, but more videos like this would help crystallise how I approach these spots going forward.

Dec. 26, 2018 | 1:06 a.m.

Hi Cory Mikesell thanks for the quick response. Yes that was the hand I was referring too. I feel that at these stakes, lots of players don't play well against block bets on any street, and whilst people are mostly over-folding, some are definitely over-calling (I have stats on one particular opponent that calls or raises 90%+ to a block river bet over a decent sample). Balancing all of your ranges on every street with three distinct bet sizes on flop and two on the turn and river is the most challenging aspect of the game to me, and it is why I admire mid and high stakes crushers so much.

I look forward to your future videos.

Dec. 20, 2018 | 9:03 p.m.

Hey Cory Mikesell, thanks for this video, looking forward to part 2. In the hand on the left table at 19:30, do you have no block-bet range at all on the river? Do you ever get to this spot with just bare trips? I have played a bit of heads up at these stakes recently, and I feel that when villain uses this line they are normally praying to get to showdown with a weak made hand. Outside of the good regs, people seem to way over-fold or way under-fold to river block bets, and I have been trying to use this exploitatively. Whilst I don't think in this spot we are going to get many better hands to fold, is there a possibility that we could be missing some value on weaker hands that will call to a 25-33% bet?

Dec. 20, 2018 | 12:31 a.m.

Phil, you are a genius. You start with the problems that the poker world faces. ‘How do we grow the game’s popularity in general?’. ‘How do we make sure that the poker economy is buoyant?’. ‘How do we change the dynamic of only 10% of players ending up with all of the money?’. ‘How do we make the players who can’t beat the rake want to keep playing?’. The money that will flood into the economy because of advertising could be enormous. Talking from experience of my job in the retail sector, we are working with massive Youtubers to grow our own community on our own YouTube channel, which in turn gives us more money through advertisements which we then pump back in to grow it more quickly. We have seen almost exponential growth in interactions with our brand since deploying this strategy. Logan Paul and KSI created the biggest PPV fight ever (bigger than McGregor vs Mayweather). Imagine the impact it could have on poker if people with different disciplines but huge followings became the recreational players, because the game’s popularity increased significantly and it paid them more through advertising than what they would lose in a 25/50 session? The whole strategy is great for both Regs and Recs. You’ve smashed it!
