Awesome video as always Phil and excited for the HU sweat in next vid. As sick nitty as that fold on J53sssKx facing 620 into 700 with 2800 effective is, you're just worried that when called, youre going to fold to a potenial and very likely 1920 pot bet on the river by a hand thats only As or nuts so youre nipping it in the bud and folding turn? Do you see yourself pure continuing if you have lets say K8s and not blocking the 2nd nuts?

Excellent content Sauce, thanks for this! Im very interested in digging and seeing an extended extrapolation of how the standard deviation could play out over deep NLHE and PLO with antes in an effort to try to quantify just how swingy the outlier bad runs and good runs can be.

Another great video Phil! I love how you try and simplify the strats as far as you can and lop off the very low incidence plays like when the solver wants to use 1/2 pot 7% of the time etc. Its very hard for my mere mortal brain to comprehend, like in the J974xhh example, that the solver will call random hands like T985 over T8 with a heart blocker bc in practice im just not calling the T98 with enough of a plan to lead on all 9 rivers etc but clearly im lighting some money on fire. And also, I understand that its trying to teach us to fire with a more heavily weighted freq with the 3 of a suit of the bdfd that missed because it blocks some of their continues even when it doesnt come in but once again in practice i just dont implement this into my game because my opponents are already so unbalanced and light years from perfect. Very mind expanding to think about though and i'll start adding weight to barreling when this comes up in game. Side note, do you use an RNG while you play HU to help randomize your close spots? Thanks again and please try and implement some practice mode next time after you review a concept to see how it shakes out pragmatically.

Nicely done m8! So youre folding 88to an open of 2.5 toanutg orLj from directly behind?

Nice work rich and I think your explanations are very clearly explained. You should’ve check raised the fish on T9xx9 and the guy behind you snap folds top pair. How prevalent do you think collusion in on Ignition¿

Yeah that JJ fold is way too tight. It’s closer to a 4b than it is a fold. 70 is way too peelable here IP.

ehhh? hes likely shipping hands on the flop that are boats so I agree with you.. the hands that were dead against ie AA+nfd and Ts with atleast a gutter and FD, are likely shipping flop too so we re getting the right price against Txxx with 2300 for 9100. its a close spot but I think its a call. we might have the best hand v QJ9 or random QJcx that now blocks so much Tx that it just stop and gos.

I think the 8 is maybe th best kicker as it unblocks JT QT QJs that may be emptying the clip.

Hey Sauce, great video. I notice that you don’t modulate your raise sizes pre from utg to btn. I see LLinus, BBB, bit2ez, and OtB all go from 213/220 to around 240 to 250. Clearly pio must corroborate this. Is it to de incentivize the 3b or just play .6ish bb pots more often from th btn? Also I see you fold q9/j9o from the cut off in unopened pots and t4s from th btn. What are your min opening thresholds here? Thanks bud!

Hey Phil, great video! I like this topic a lot and how you start with the oop 3b spot first. Great check w 99👌🏽
I’m curious if you’re if there’s any 6max/hu plo content producers in the pipeline as I’ve been disappointed with content that I’ve watched in these realms.
Also, the defending against the third pot Cbets on paired and flush boards would be super interesting content!
Cheers 🥂

it kept rolling 96 plus! More like HighNG

Very cool and well thought out! I like the part about how to take adv of the asymmetrical trips on 775 where the ip in 6 max and esp fr just doesn’t have the 7x other than A7/maybeK7s when opening ep/mp. Would like to see a solver game tree laid out with how leading leads us to make more mistakes and how to combat leads. Thanks!

nice work Sauce! reallly mind blowing how 11% of IPs range is AA and Im having trouble wrapping my brain around how its almost same freq to shove AA with a club and without. very strange that AAxx wants to turn itself into a bluff. also, if regs are calling 84o otr, why is just KK a vaue shove for NL? very interesting.
on a side note: Id give my left nut to see a four handed NL game with you, Linus, OTB, and Jungle

yeah I thought that our blockers were bad because the majority of the hands we beat otr are the AKQXhxhx type of hands that now feel like my hand is most likely overpair+diamonds or pair+wrap. That being said, our blockers are terrible, we unblock hearts, and we block QQ but are we folding all 89s? if hes not betting his 89s, which i dont think he would or should, should we call all Jxs and fold this with shitty blockers like we have? I thought it was close and called, and did not pass go.

Post | Tarpon85 posted in PLO: 25/50/100 Live FR PLO

We play a 25/50/100 hosted private PLO game every week and the game is a mixture of one very smart thinking Tag, 3 whales, 4 NL nits who sort of know what to do with four cards, and me.

Game is off the hook and the whales are hammered and we’re all drinking shots like it’s 1/28/1919 and the 18th Ammendment is about to pass tomorrow. Hammered Tag (60k) opens btn to 400, whale (50k) on my right with SB calls. I (50k) look down at QQ98scsc and squeeze to 1700. Btn calls, whale folds 🤯.

Flop: J ♦️ T ❤️ 6 ♦️

I check. Tag bets 3300. I call.

Turn: J ♥️

I check, Tag checks quickly.

River: 7 ♥️

I check. Tag bets 7k. I???

Thoughts on pre, flop, and river much appreciated. I want to withhold the results to prevent confirmation bias til some crusher way in... Thanks RIO Fam.

Great video and thank you for the artfully crafted insight into 250+bb PLO as there's very little content at all concerning this format.  Small question: at 12:40 you open fold 8776ss utg, but in the cutoff 4handed, and in an ante game I'm always opening this, maybe even in the hijack with nits and flat players on the cut off and btn.  Am I over valuing this hands connectedness and the mid pair this deep or was your fold a function of opening other tables coupled with the psychological tightness associated with being utg?  Mid and bottom set does suck a lot this deep...

Also, could you please shed light on why you and the other superstars like Oddsen open to 2.27-2.5 on the btn without an aggro 3btr in the blinds? I'm still in 2.5-3xland nursing the idea that I want my opponent to make larger errors while OOP and an avg larger pot IP cant be bad, but clearly I have to fold to 3bets more and play shallower in 3bet pots. As always thank you, and keep up the wonderful content man.
