Thanks for content, quality as usual.

Could you share the method you use to convert bounties into big blinds Alex?

Thanks Alex, great video as always.

The A5s jam at 28:00, I would probably jam myself too but could also see me going for a bet/call against all but the bigger stack on the BB or when multiple player stacks in. Anyway, my thoughts when you pull up HRC to check your play was that it shows that the shove was profitable which would be pretty surprising if it wasn't, but the center of the play is about the comparison of the evs in shoving and raising. And HRC or ICMizer they kind of don't do that comparison very well, as they assume 100% eqt realization on the PF calls if I'm not misstaken. So yea, just curious to see your thoughts on how to get around those HRC limits to compare between shoving/raising and even to define cold calling ranges in MTT's.

Also, how do you convert bountys into BB's? You seem to do that quite easily and straight forwardly. Sorry if already answered that btw.

Good work and gl!

Hey! I've been migrating from cash to tournaments. Could you give me some orientation on where to start studying? I mean should I study post flop with pio or focus more on hrc/icmizer?
Thank you, appreciate the good content!

Pretty good series you got there!
2 Overall questions:

1: Time action: How important do you think time action is in this kind of tournaments, Im not sure if your videos are played on the regular speed that they actually ocurred (are they ?), but it appear that you rarely take some moments to take the action pf or even pos flop. How importnat or what difference does it makes in your opinion ?

2: Float oop with air. Omg bro, I saw you floatting oop with purely no equity several times, how common is that ? Mtt reg do that alot aiming to exploit pos flop on spots that villains cbetting range is so wide ? If you can elaborate your overall thoughts on that too I would apreciate big time.

Another pretty good video!

Suggestion for the next one -

Constructing SB+BB ranges for 6 max (fast formats) vs (2x,2.5x,3x) open raises - focusing mostly on SB+BB vs CO+BTN and BVB.

-Flatting (exploitive vs minimum defence frequency)

And a suggestion for the next head's up videos

Get some pretty tough HH, things like defending vs 3bets on some strange turns and river runnouts, some situations that you might think that its probably a pretty clear call/fold but ppl not that experienced on head's up might be overfolding/overflatting. Just some grose pos-flop situations that you possibly have some good insight's to point out.

Pretty nice video. Finally getting some HU content for essential.

Some ideias for next HU videos:

Overall pf game plan regarding: calling 3bets and 4bets / 3betting and 4betting light /3 betting and 4betting linear/polarized

As someone pointed out, selecting some HH's and trying to make an especial video just for reasoning behind overbets on turn's and rivers, both as bluff and value, would be pretty awesome.

I do agree with all your points on this video about dubious flop c/r with toppair and FD with showdown value

 The most of my profit on poker came from head's up although I actually never had a solid game plan. Any tips on how to develop it ? A video on initial thoughts on how to develop a solid game plan for HU would be nice. But I guess this is way more complicated than it appears, right ?   

Other thing, after already having a solid game plan, how does it changes according to different villains, does the game plan already has it's own adaptation against several different opponents or witch opponent requires an peculiar derivation from the original game plan ?

Comment | caofa commented on HUNL preflop question.

Get into some math, it would probably clarify the things up for you. But actually there is no secret at all, I guess. Vs a competent guy I would do something like 7x the bb against mini raise or 10x the bb against 3x. And something in between vs a steal between 2 and 3x.
But vs recreational players, I would check how they react vs diferent sizes and go from there. I.e: If he doesn't fold to 3bet, kind of regardless of it's size, I would make it 10x vs a mini raise, or even higher, for value obv. 

Or if the villain folds against every single 3bet, of almost any size, I would do something like 4x vs a mini raise and 5x vs a 3x and so on...

And I do not have to say that the way the villain approach pos flop should matter alot too.

Just initial thoughts about the question, If someone develop a more defined, accurate and deep thought process, it would be really nice and helpfull.
