I heard that PIO with on-demand instances is a bit tricky due to the licensing and the fact that you would get a new machine each time. I haven't tried but something to consider.

Not much to it.

Start an instance. Download a .rdp so you can remotely connect to it and voila its just like your own desktop.

Post | StaticVoid posted in Chatter: Database to PIO Ranges

Is there anyway to take a database of hands (PT4, HEM) and import them to create PIO ranges? Basically I want to take what my population is doing instead of trying to create my own biased ranges.

Post | StaticVoid posted in Chatter: Monker vs PIO

Sorry for the very generic question but what program is best for NLHE analysis? Are there a lot of players out there using Monker for analysis or is this still heavily weighted to PIO?

Pros to Monker
- Can solve MW
- Can also solve PLO (which I also play)

Cons to Monker
- Interface seems subpar compared to PIO
- Slightly more expensive than PIO Basic but comparable to PIO Pro

Thanks for any input.

Party is over for @SetMineUrAss. He can’t win anymore so he rains on everyone else’s parade.

This post Is hilarious. SetMineUrAss Please tell me what incentive ignition has to rig the RNG? If you lose all your money then you aren’t paying rake. Seriously sounds like you are just bitter about the fact that others are making money and you can’t.

Game: Typical 9-handed 2/5 game with 3+ players to the flop.

What are some good tools to analyze live play? I'm finding trying to range all but the extremely tightest opponents completely futile. I am also a bit lost on what "correct" RFI, cold-calling and 3-betting ranges/numbers look like.

How should I go about improving my game?

PIO seems pretty much useless since most if not all hands are 3+ handed and as mentioned, ranging opponents is difficult. Would PokerSnowie be something to consider? Monker? Posting Hand Histories? Anything else?

Comment | StaticVoid commented on PIO Ranges

Ugggh. I'm almost positive that anything for sale is going to be overpriced.

Surprised there is no community support for common ranges. Seems pretty basic.

Are there any freely available PIO ranges? If so please let me know. Thanks

Post | StaticVoid posted in Other: PIO vs MonkerSolver

Any thoughts on PIO vs MonkerSolver? Seems that the pre-flop solving capabilities of Monker is quite powerful.

That helps a lot. Thanks

Thanks. There are quite a lot of videos on RIO. Any in particular you would recommend?

June 10, 2018 | 2:39 p.m.

I have the same questions as I am finally trying to understand PIO. Let's keep this thread going...

Post | StaticVoid posted in Chatter: PIO Unlocked

Any reviews on this course? Worth the money for someone relatively new to using PIO?

June 9, 2018 | 7:59 p.m.

If you have any software needs let me know.

Comment | StaticVoid commented on Opening ranges

Ok I am nitting it up then. I guess it depends on BB's tendencies. If somehow they are folding at any decent percentage I think we can open 45%.

My initial comment was also based off of a 3x open

Comment | StaticVoid commented on Opening ranges

That SB percentage seems a bit high no? That may include a limping range. I don't believe we can really open more than ~30%. Someone please correct me if I am wrong as I am by no means any sort of expert (or close to it)

Post | StaticVoid posted in NLHE: Population Tendencies

Sorry for a rather vague question but I have been out of the game for awhile and just wondering what are the current population tendencies are for your basic stats (VPIP, PFR, 3B, etc) across 0.5/1, 0.5/1 and 1/2?


June 9, 2018 | 7:45 a.m.

Seems to have a positive impact on live play. Counter-intuitively seems to help with patience.

they haven't been bankroll crippling because not once this year have I chased losses by opening more tables or playing higher stakes! (ROUND OF APPLAUSE)

^^^ my march goal

Comment | StaticVoid commented on pio solver

Yes its free. It's a bit different than bootcamp in that you don't need to dual boot into it which is nice. As ZenFish mentioned its really only restrained by the amount of resources you give to it.

Post | StaticVoid posted in Chatter: Will AI ruin online poker?

Curious how others view how AI is changing the game. As computers and our understanding of the mathematics of poker improve I wonder if this will ruin online poker over the next few years. I would think for a game as "simple" as NL it for sure would... maybe even PLO. How do others view this looming doomsday scenario?

Also on Mac. I use Virtualbox w/ Windows 10

Feb. 20, 2017 | 3:11 p.m.

Thank for the response. Ok, that makes a lot more sense. I was curious how one would put in so much volume otherwise.

I'll be following this thread to keep up with your progress and wish you the best of luck in 2017!

Great blog. The intro rings very close to home and I am trying to emulate. I've played for many years but not really taken it seriously and would like to change that. The one thing that strikes me as hard to emulate is attempting to put in 50k hands a month. I could MAYBE put in 10k. How do you put in so much volume? Do you have a full time job or is this your job?

What is opponent holding in hand #1?

Comment | StaticVoid commented on Tom Chambers Books

Didn't know about the preview so thanks I'll check that out.

Curious on how you compare writing a beginners book over the advanced. I would think it would be a lot harder to put yourself in that "beginners" mindeset.

Trying to reproduce the toy game in Sauces first GTO video. Is there a way to force OOP to always call?

Crazy expensive books. Are they even worth it?
