Hey is anyone in a group or wants to be in a group for studying PIO? I play usually on the Chinese apps mid to high stakes. I guess as long as you can play mid stakes or higher it's OK if you are wanting to learn and improve.
I'm trying to get inspired to study more.
PM me if you have some interest.

Hey what's up guys.
I play 5 10 NL plus or higher I'm looking for weekly call or something similar to help me stay accountable with staying on track with goals.
Has anyone else tried it?
In addition I work with some coaches but also look for some players who's motivated and committed to excellence.
PM me if you like my idea...

HI Kevin -
17:36 – 8s 5s on the river. Do you like a shove here by the villain in the hand. As played, are you folding to a river all in?
28:16 - 10s7s - Preflop you said that sometimes you 4 bet this hand. Can explain why you like this hand to 4bet, and what situations that you usually want to 4 bet it.

Nice Video: At 16:18 I'm trying to understand the calculation. .03 x 2000 = 60, so 6/10 of a BB because the game is 50 100.
After that, I understood you to say that it's 60 BB / 100 or 16 bb / 100? I think you said 60BB per 100. I'm having trouble understanding how this affects win rate that much with a small % adjustment. Thanks

Maybe Human didn't see the hand where Flying Smile checked back T 9 because he was playing too many tables? Based on that hand I would be turbo folding the King 9 on the turn vs. flying smile. I don't think that he's ever bluffing in that spot, at least not the way he was playing on that day.
It really seems like this game plays super tight. Very cool to see some of the hands that were folded, like 4h 5h preflop to a small 3 bet. I get value just watching how these games are playing and then with your analysis and watching your play Kevin, I like this series quite a bit.

Hi thanks for the video.
About Pokerstars, are people using GTO software on there? I wasn't completely understanding what you were saying about the games on Stars. Do you consider that it's a fair playing environment but the games are very hard with high rake?
About PIO, How long does it take to run 25 different flops for a spot such as BB vs Button on the flop for a PIO novice. I think you said you got those flops from the PIO website. Do you have link where that video is at?

Hey Paul Nice series. do you know the air date for this event? Can I access it on the Poker Go? Thanks

Hi guys thanks for the thread. Few questions for Jason or Brian -
A. About playing full time on the poker tour, do you have an idea of how many people actually play it full time over the past year? What about the past 5 or 10 years.
B. Can you share how hard it is to have an annual profit playing in the big buy in events, and also, how the variance is. For example, if you played for 10 years on the live tournament circuit, how many of those years would be profitable or unprofitable. How many events do you usually play, etc.
C. Hopefully I'm not getting too off topic but you had chatted a little bit about not making big mistakes in the tournaments from the video. Does the Hyper aggro style of play work very well these days at all?
D. Who are you're favorite poker players on the Poker tour 2018? Most fun to watch or the best overall players.

Hi Teunuss - Excellent Video and Format -
Just a couple of novice questions about the PIO analysis:
a. Are you able to run multiple hands at the same time? Or do you have to run one at a time.
b. On the Kc9c PIO hand, you said the OOP range was PIO approved. Is there a way to access the default ranges for those spots somewhere? Any suggestions?
May 16, 2018 | 9:06 a.m.
Nice format with 6 tables and mixed stakes. Good pacing. I enjoyed the video.
16:58 – 5h4h on the river. What hands might you be bluffing with in this spot for this sizing? Would you say you are under bluffing in that spot?
36:22 – Is anyone really ever folding trip aces on the river for the sizing of your river raise in a blind on blind situation? With Ace 10 or Ace 7, I think you can check raise turn and bet the river for value and put him in a tough spot on the river with a weak ace, and maybe even get some calls on the turn with 10x or Diamonds. And if you played your 7c4c like this he would have a much tougher decision on the river with his Ax hands. That probably does not play balanced with your range though?
April 10, 2018 | 4:18 a.m.
Nice Video! I really liked the format.
Do you have any advice on setting up default preflop ranges for PIO? How long does it usually take you to review your hands in the mornings if you have around 5 hands to look at?

Hey Elias – Nice video.
24:53 - I was thinking about this hand creatively – What about leading out for one third pot on river, and you could add flush draws as bluffs…Because, I don’t think that he’s bluffing the river much if any at all, and you are ahead 99% of the time. Another idea is to over bet lead out for 5x pot or even shove. He might have tough call with an Ace.
As for video ideas, I would like to see more 5/10 plus action, as there are not really a lot of the videos available at high stakes NL on RIO. If you could produce videos and do hand reviews at high stakes on Pokerstars that would be great, from my perspective. Also very valuable would be if you are active with answering questions on the forum. For example, let’s say that you made some videos 3 tabling and hand review at 5/10 plus on Pokerstars, and that you are actively answering and participating on the forums. I don’t think all of the videos need to be super fancy. That’s my ideas.
By the way, what software are you using to make the videos?

Hi Ben – Nice Video
14:03 – Kh Qs
Flop (Ad 5h 6s)
a. How often are you bluffing the flop here, and what sizing would you recommend if you are going to bluff this flop?
b. How often would you estimate that the preflop raiser would be check folding the flop on this board (a) for a bet of 1/3 pot, or (b) 2/3 pot?
c. Are you barreling turn / river a lot if he check calls flop and you are bluffing?

Hi Era7er – Nice video
Just a few questions about the KK hand at 13:00
- Are you calling an all in on the river if he shoves?
- About preflop with this hand KK in the BB vs. UTG raiser - Are you bluffing there preflop at all?
- ON the turn, if your opponent is passive, would you consider betting, even if the board is less drawy?
Dec. 19, 2017 | 2:07 a.m.
Hi Tyler - Nice Video!
Just some question / thoughts about the Ad 2h hand at 42:00 on the river:
Assuming you had some more money behind (1k or more), do you think having a small sizing for a river check raise, to around 395 or 425 is a viable option for your range? And also, possibly having a larger raising size for other types of hands.
With your actual hand and stack, Ace 2, is it possible that a min raise would be a good play? I don't think he's jamming over a min raise without a better hand enough to call it one the river if he makes it. But of course, you would have great odds to call at that point, so I can see why it might be a little bit of a tricky spot. It would probably look very fishy to me if someone min raised me there and I was the guy on the button (river). I actually think the guy could be floating you a lot and have a lot of bluffs, as well as the hands like KQ, AQ, KK, AA, and maybe even Queen Jack...

What size and type of monitor are you using ?

Nice Video -
Do you mind sharing your win rate in terms of PT BB/100 at 10/20 NL and 500 Zoom on Stars?
Since you are really good with apps such as PIO solver and CR EV, it might be cool to see you do some sims with the hands after your review sometime.
Nov. 18, 2017 | 3:12 p.m.
Hi Juan – thanks for the video – Nice Format (would also work well if it was live play with the PIO analysis). I don’t think very many people will be folding a set at that stack depth, but if you are deeper it’s certainly a lot more likely.
8:42 – Can you just give a little bit of detail about the pros and cons to bet 17 into the pot of 26 instead of a smaller bet size? Are you barreling the turn a lot if he calls flop? And if he calls turn, what about river shoving range?
How often would he need to fold hands such as QQ to 1010 or small suited aces on the flop to make the larger bet size profitable?
Nov. 17, 2017 | 2:26 a.m.
Oct. 13, 2017 | 12:50 a.m.
For a future video, it might be cool to see you look over some of the hands from a video in PIO. You seem to be pretty proficient at it, based on the amount of hands you check to help with the commentary analysis.
How long does it normally take you to check a hand in the solver?
Sept. 26, 2017 | 12:39 a.m.
Great Series - It's helping me with Mid stakes NL live play since there are limpers in pots pretty often and usually some weaker regulars.
Time stamp 20:18
Hand; You open pocket 4d 4c UTG, C.O. 3 bets and you call pre flop
Board (4h Jd 6c) As 2c. You check call the flop. Turn goes check, check. River goes check, check.
A. Do you think checking the river could be a fairly large mistake in this hand?
B. Can I also ask what your river bluff check raising range would be in this hand? I guess he can be checking the turn for pot control with hands like small suited aces if he 3 bets those preflop. What do you think? And do you think that check raising the river as a bluff pretty frequently (overbluffing) would work well against
some of the weaker regulars?
C. Do you ever donk the turn in this situation. Maybe bet half pot on the turn and then bet the river or go for check raise on river?
