Post | Thallo posted in PLO: Offering PLO Staking

Hey guys, I'm looking to back some players for PLO 10 up to PLO 50 depending on skill level. I am offering a variety of splits depending on your level of experience. As I feel strongly that Run it Once poker is the best option for players and I personally want to support them all play would be expected to be on there.

If this is something that interests you play PM me and have at least a 5k hand sample size within the last month, although of course the more the better! You don't have to necessarily be a winning player yet, but looking for people who are willing to put in time and effort into improving their game!

Once the stable is large enough we will be running internal competitions with bonus's for the top performing players each month. Nothing better than making some extra money just for making money!

Disappointed to see you are hiding the player names Richard. My plan to watch your videos then bum hunt your students in hopes you have a piece of them has been foiled. Sorry I'm just too used to seeing you in twitch, automatically feels like I should troll you.

Like this format. Looking forward to more

Richard your content is getting so good that I'm starting to get actively concerned at how many people may be watching this and learning things I don't want them to know. Imo correct small blind leading is one of the biggest leaks even good regulars still have and is not something I would like to see people figure out quick semi fixes to. I like that population is dramatically over checking oop and allowing me to dictate pot size IP.

Comment | Thallo commented on Vision GTO Trainer FAQ

Is there a way to swap the suits in HU Pots for non A high boards? for example q86ss flop automatically has the 86 suited. Can't seem to get the Q as one of the suited cards which changes the available 2p+ FD combinations significantly.

Gotta be honest man, your content on here is something that any of us who play mix and are trying to really learn wait for. It's fantastic to have a mix game coach on here and there isn't a lot of modern mix content, so it's a little disappointing to spend time on a video where opponents don't even know the rules. There's no reason to be reviewing games in a field where villain is patting a pair of 2's in 2-7 with 2 draws to go not even as a bluff. Just nothing to learn from it

I usually watch videos on 1.25x or 1.5x but you were going at such a pace I found myself habitually clicking to drop it to 1x....even though it was already there ha. Welcome back, I second nittyoldman comment on I would like to hear the opinions on population and thought process behind certain decisions. As we move more and more into the land of solver based play I think it becomes more important to detail how top players are adjusting exploitative to maximize EV.

19 minutes top left, I think villains hand is a pretty clear bet. Unblocks all pairs, blocks AQ of spades and a 9 which are prime cards in your bluffing range. Probly using our AA combos with a pair and no As as our bluff catchers, this seems to be one of the best possible leading AAxx combos

Hey Richard, great format, couple questions and comments:

At 23 minutes you say "rolled it" suggesting you are using a rng for certain frequency based decisions. Can you comment on doing this rather than using side cards which seems to be widely accepted as a better strategy for PLO if you can break them down into clean enough categories heuristically to actually implement?

This is more generic and something I've noticed in your other videos as well, you don't seem to bet full pot very often, even in spots where it's getting mixed in at a reasonable frequency. You, similar to me, seem to base your sizing strategy more around 1/3 and 2/3 or 3/4 sizing's. I've actually been working to switch this and get more comfortable "potting" more often and how to balance my betting accordingly, so I was wondering if you could shed some light on how you approach this. Are you deriving your sizing's based on what you think is most effective versus populations tendencies for specific reasons about how they defend, because you think it's just "gto", or is this just a coincidence and I'm totally wrong?

March 12, 2020 | 12:19 a.m.

Bad news Richard, 9 parts is well within the parameters of "massive" might be time to lawyer up.

Great series over all and always appreciate the quality of your MTT content, but as we get further and further ICM decisions play a bigger role the applicability of most spots to every day play decreases. I have no qualms of this coming to an end and looking forward to you continuing the cash series you have been doing and whatever your next MTT foray is.

I'll give you very good odds on this :)

Minute 6 table 1 a fairly insane hand was played that you weren't in. Not sure how the labeling works on Ignition but is the orange guy the same on all 3 tables? Min 3 bet the paired board with no blockers bad draw then jammed turn after making the 5 high flush on the paired board still with 0 pair blockers. I'm curious if this is an isolated incident of especially horrendous play or do you notice lines like this on a semi consistent basis on Ignition? Never played there. (Saw the 99 hand he played against you after writing this)

Great video over all, appreciate your willingness to trash your own lines when required and you've also gotten must better at not staring into the camera already. Seems like you are a great addition to the heavier solver focused content of Corey and Richard 1

Looking forward to meeting you at the LATB game coming up, hear we have a few mutual friends.

THe hand where Lucky called with 22 on the river he had only a half bet left, that's what he was thinking about. Twice the pot odds than a normal bet and how hard it is to come back from half a big bet, figured the long shot snow catch was better

Your videos have been exceptional lately. I think anyone looking to incorporate solver work into their hand history videos should look at this series as an example of how to execute that in the most fluid manner.

Love the dive into the SB cold call range and subsequent leads at 26 minutes, as someone who plays in environments with weaker players and rake a less of a factor, I knowingly have widened my SB cold calling decently above GTO to get involved in more hands vrs said weaker players, but haven't dived deep enough into what this actually means for me on different board textures especially when it comes to my leading frequency...which thanks to this video I'll now be spending many future hours doing.

I would hypothesize that most "weaker" players won't have put much time into this spot and are used to oop checking to them on most broadway textures without differentiating between SB and BB, and thus will adjust very poorly to proper aggression from the SB, will be interesting seeing how gto responds vrs population and how to best exploit that difference. Thanks for this.

The pain you feel while playing is entertaining to experience from a viewer perspective

Feb. 16, 2020 | 9:33 a.m.

Been loving your videos and I'll take all mix game content I can on here, but that being said I don't think this format is very conducive to educational videos. In high stakes HU dynamics like this so much of the play is exploitative and based on each players perceptions of their opponent that using theory to evaluate these plays is very challenging. We just have no idea how deep the history is and the assumptions/knowledge each player is working with. I just don't think we learn much from viewing isolated hands in this dynamic compared to general theory study.

25 mins you talk about picking up a low draw but i think it's stud Hi

Comment | Thallo commented on #GalfondChallenge

forCarlotta No, you directly said "Again, I don't want to sound redundant or just call him a fraud, because that's not the case... but if he continues, I'm way more sure that the money played is not real." That's no language barrier, your intent is crystal clear and it isn't to learn. These are the RIO forums and this is a thread to discuss the challenge in a productive manner, not state your beliefs on it being a scam. I won't be addressing this any more and further taking away from what this thread should be. Everyone here deserves better, and I hope you keep this thread clean in the future.

Simple Omaha just came out with some PLO training. Other than that I think PokerJuice is the simplest, but def has holes.

  1. Def convenient, missing on sizing options. Strongly prefer a 1/4-1/3 and pot option over 1/2 and pot. Also pot or check river sizing in the HU solver same thing, not reflective of game play
  2. Haven't gone through much so hard to say, but trees seems accurate
  3. Button vrs BB

Edit: Ok after running through more of the HU sims def some weird decision conclusions. 3b having 100% check with huge portions of their range on the A67hh seems odd, and the half pot/full pot only sizing options on paired boards lead to some really weird lines

Comment | Thallo commented on #GalfondChallenge

forCarlotta This logic is incredibly flawed. For one Phil has won well over a million in a single session before, so they idea of him "faking" a high stakes match on his own site is absurd. Second; the reasons to continue are many. If Veni is truly a better player, this is Phil's first challenge with many upcoming, what better what to knock of the rust then play one of the best, review the hands, and improve? Third; Phil is one of the best exploitative players, I'm sure he certainly believes his chances improve the longer the match goes on. Additionally none of us have any idea Phil's bankroll, his motivation to challenge himself, the +/- for visibility on the site every day this is played, the +/- for future action based on how visible this loss is, and plenty of other reasons that can go into continuing.

This is a trash take, it's been addressed repeatedly. Don't post what is a very thinly veiled accusation of Phil, one of the most well respective figures in all of poker and deservedly so, attempting to scam the poker community here again.

Feb. 8, 2020 | 2:53 a.m.

What site are these hands played on and when?

Feb. 6, 2020 | 9:45 a.m.

Phil's fold at 13 seems standard given how small the pot is. As you stated hes calling hoping for 1/2, so he's barely getting over 1-1 on the call given it was checked down. With a player behind seems like a definite fold.

Iteopepe88 Need infinite more videos like this. I've been playing a lot of these games in a 12 game mix on one of the private apps. Would you be interested in me recording any footage and sending it to you for review? Playing 30/60 or 50/100 mostly

Jan. 26, 2020 | 11:31 p.m.

Jcarver sighting at the A-5 table, that's amazing

Jan. 26, 2020 | 12:29 p.m.

Iteopepe88 lol that "fck" at 30 minutes after the suck out. Classic.

Getting a lot out of going through some of your older mix game videos. This one and the Badugi one were fantastic. Would love more recent in depth specialized content like this if the chance arises.

I feel like I'm missing something on the equity calculation at 45 minutes. How is catching a 4-5-6 with a 5 and two 6's dead 51% in 2 draws? Are we not factoring in the cards you had?

Comment | Thallo commented on #GalfondChallenge

While one of the main purposes for the challenge is publicity, def don't want anyone in the booth just because they are popular. Polk runs a directly competing training site so I would doubt he's hopping in the booth for this ha

Jan. 24, 2020 | 3:04 a.m.

Ya, this an just ICM pressure. Even if it's early at a final table, I do think it affects the ranges people are willing to open and even in some cases defend. I can also be fascinating to figure out who is altering their play in what ways due to ICM and who isn't.

Would just like to say that Richard Gryko is doing an exceptional job commentating and balancing out Stapes. Very hard scenario to be commenting in and he's adding a ton of value.
