You can lock Quido's account (guy commenting below): he pirates but doesn't think it's theft:

Thanks for sorting it out, Mikey, got your email and replied.

OK, I can email in case. Awesome.

Hi Team, today I see a big red banner on top of RIO: "Free Essential ... until October 30th".

I think 'cool', as I'm mostly tired today and cannot play much, ' let me check the essential videos' out as I don't even know who's who anymore. Soon after doing this, I get 'Your account is temporarily locked as you have been requesting too many videos'...

There goes the promo I guess. I briefly saw a 'Contact us' link with the message but too late, I had closed that already. What can we do?

Comment | YashN commented on HM2 or PT4

There are plenty of 'add-ons' you can add to PT 4, so this isn't a differentiating feature.

Dec. 2, 2016 | 6:30 p.m.

I thought I'd try a newer version for speed as PT 4 has a few slowdowns on macOS.

However, currently, going with a version greater than 9.3 will cause you a few issues: HUD not appearing normally, HUD nor working, both in games and replay.

Secondly, when you revert back to an older version, you may run into Restore issues.

Best to wait until PT actually announces support for newer Postgresql versions to attempt an upgrade. In that case, ensure you have a good backup stored safely somewhere.

Mushmellow, you're not the only one: I'm precisely like that myself. After a while, either I do a whole cycle of de-synchronisation and come back to waking up early, or else I use sleep deprivation within reason then sleep exhausted to sync back.

Your Tracker/DB HUD gives you this if configured for it.

Only read MGOP 1, but the process in it is fantastic if you act upon it.

Yes, their dereferencing and embedding alg works pretty well. A complete replayer plugin in Discord would be the ultimate.

Discord is cool. Wish they formatted hands properly when pasted straight from the tracker though.

At least I haven't taken up the role of a moralising basher but who doesn't feel stealing commercial content is a problem, like Quido...

Thieves protecting us from 'scammers' according to their own crooked moral hierachies, that's all we need to get better now.

You pirate commercial content and then think you can take the moral high ground that someone else is a scammer?

"The coaches are shit"


Apparently, bencb76 who just won the Super-High Roller vs Fedor is a BPC SNG Head Coach (from an email received):

Congratz to our SNG head coach Ben "bencb789", who won the biggest online poker tournament in history yesterday, and collected $1,172,461!

Ben is of course used to big scores, having been the #1 player on Sharkscope last year in all formats of SNGs, and across all levels:

Those lucky enough to be in his SNG group in our coaching for profits programs see him in action every day, of course, so it's not a big surprise to them or us.


What do you say about this, you and other haters? Still not worth it to be coached by him on BPC?

'movie character' - not much, nicknames and avatars are as varied as opinions or the more smelly alternatives which are as common.

Interesting take on CREV, ZenFish. As an alternative to assigning % to equity realisation wouldn't it be necessary to build a reasonable fuller tree for better results?

Sept. 4, 2016 | 6:44 p.m.

Haven't noticed that kind of issue with PP, and I think I would have: I built my current roll there from 0, so would have plenty of opportunities to notice while in a tiny-to-small bankroll.

There are issues, but not with the money, mostly to do with the software and its social features as well as some of the annoying bugs.

Indeed, feedback like this one is helpful.

Sept. 4, 2016 | 6:38 p.m.

You're probably going to learn some useful process with the official and unofficial PIO videos posted on Youtube and elsewhere - its often easier to watch someone do it instead of reading about it.

Aug. 29, 2016 | 5:14 p.m.

  1. Know Terminology - make a list of concepts that need to be known
  2. Configure HUD stats
  3. Play and Track
  4. Configure DB/Tracker for Leakfinding
  5. Do Leakfinding session and identify biggest leaks
  6. Review hands for these leaks
  7. Study material related to Leak plugging (take notes) and review hands again (take notes)
    -- Study can include using Flopzilla/Equilab and modeling in CREV or PIO/GTORB
  8. Do focus sessions on the concept plugs
  9. Play again
  10. Monitor DB for change in BB/100 after plugging leak

Repeat from #5

Then go on their forums and ask your questions to them directly.

Comment | YashN commented on coaching questions

Here are a few pointers:
1. Ensure that before you take your sessions with a coach, you have a good grasp of terminology and concepts
2. Be prepared before your first and subsequent sessions:
- Know what goals you want to accomplish
- Have a rather comprehensive DB of hand histories available and be ready to either export and provide these to your coach or else allow him to remotely configure your DB/Tracker software
- Be ready during the session to listen more than speak, listen carefully and actively, do ask questions if necessary
3. Be ready to put in efforts post-session:
- The coach will probably provide you with material to plug your most blatant leaks, you will have to study those, practise them and internalise them for later
- Read additional material not provided by your coach on the concept you need to work on.
4. Choose a coach whose work style and teaching style fits your own personality - no need to hook up with a coach who will bark insults at you if you value self-esteem and hate vulgarity
5. If you have any additional requests, ask the coach what he thinks: either he'll give you other things for free or for additional cost
6. Note down after sessions what the coach did and what he advised, what results you got from applying the plugs and also why each plug is a good thing to do.

Comment | YashN commented on BPC Best Poker Coaching

You can check the graphs and the blog posts from players who are doing the recommended work for yourself and make up your own mind. I agree with Samu above.

Aug. 29, 2016 | 4:37 p.m.

Well, teaching can make you better yourself as you verbalise and structure thoughts, rules and process.

However, after a while, big money being involved at the highest levels, you don't want to create great adversaries.

Case in point: Fedor... he was coaching, he had a stable (maybe still has?), then he seriously upped his game, and decided not to share his new knowledge on videos on RIO anymore.

At the end of the day, it's war and you need to crush the others to get to the big payouts, and you don't want to give them the edge you have. It's a game of imperfect information, so the more you have, the better for you.

Comment | YashN commented on recommendations for math

There's not much complicated maths in Poker. What's complicated is when you need to factor in trees and calculate EV. There is software for this so that you can work with it offline.

For the rest, the maths is really rudimentary (odds).

You could practice with PT4 itself, hiding its own display of odds.

There are couple of Poker maths dedicated books, so you may look into those, like one from Owen Gaines I think.

Why is $45 expensive - if you think it's worthwhile to learn, then consider it a learning budget? If it's worthwhile to learn, it probably means it will earn you money as well, so it isn't a big expenditure, it's a good investment.

You can learn anything on the Internet too nowadays.

Hey dondigio, the best way to approach this is to learn the Quick Filter tool.

Your approach should then be to identify your biggest leaks through the various reports (e.g. positional) with the necessary stats.

From there, you can dig deeper for more hands using the Filters.

One player's leaks is not necessarily another's so it won't benefit you to look at someone else's filters.

Aug. 22, 2016 | 11:32 p.m.

Thanks ZenFish.

You should be able to run 64-bits with VirtualBox I believe.

Aug. 19, 2016 | 7:56 p.m.

Excellent post, ZenFish. Any pointers on what to explore with CREV's EqS?

If you're on a Mac like me, you're probably using a Virtual Machine, can't PIO Solver run on one?

Comment | YashN commented on Do you use HM2 or PT4?

PT 4 videos about Stats

Look into the sidebar for more videos. Watch them all.

The Stats Tab can show you a lot of info: you can view positional stats, make additional Report customisations (right click upper-right on the report and add/remove stats).

The Holdem Range visualiser can be useful too.

Learn to use the Quick Filters as well.

One of the best Online MTT players of all time uses PT 4.
