Good luck on tables, waiting for part 2.

love ur vids Ben.

lovely that u started putting a bit more NLH volume at regular games lately

would love to see more of ur HU 2 or 4 tabling videos, with pauses over recorded footage, if possible (similar to one vs syous series). I think its ur best format of vids by far. Thx

Comment | halvadron1 commented on Fold a flopped set?

Damn it,i answered my own question >:( .Calling is more profitable on this spot because you might more realize than your equity on any turn except Ax or Jx .if opponent is known to shove any turn

Comment | halvadron1 commented on Fold a flopped set?

but the problem with calling is you might have to call AI/shove on any turn except Ax or Jx,but you will realize your equity more than 100% of the time if your opponent is known to shove on any turn.

Comment | halvadron1 commented on Fold a flopped set?

hmm,i got another question here,is calling or jamming more +ev? I think calling here lets him bet another street on a blank with the huge draws like Ax of spades or AK of spades,but jamming might fold out those huge draws i think.

Na,you should flop c-bet,if you put him on a range of AJ,AQ,66+,A10s,AK(less weightage),and 910s(?),even SP KKs.

Check back is a bit bad as the turn gives draws like 910,AK a free card,and your still IP and playable on turn and river,and you still can gain value from AJ,AQ if possible.You lose alot of value if you check back flop,therefore causing a awkward spot on turn and river because of that.

Hello. In his video Lucas presented his hud and I would like to get the same one. Does anybody has it and can give me a link to download?

Oct. 27, 2013 | 10:49 a.m.

yes,but like arukidinme said,we want to put personal notes on the concept videos too,or highlight the important points of these concepts.

Oct. 26, 2013 | 12:10 p.m.


some of the elite videos arent that elite

Post | halvadron1 posted in Chatter: Powerpoint type videos

Hey RIO pros! Nice work on all the powerpoint point type of videos that is made such as how to be a better poker player,toy gaming...etc

I got a suggestion when pros make these types of videos,can you put up the powerpoint slides up for download as well? The members could greatly benefit by just understanding  the points offline(while on the way to work,on train....etc) and slowly grasp the concepts while we are doing other things. 

Thanks alot for all the great effort done on RIO! Worth the value! 

Oct. 25, 2013 | 11:21 p.m.

doesnt a normal raise accomplish the same thing? do u expect him to float/reraise with his air alot?

Oct. 25, 2013 | 9:35 a.m.

hey pros,i have a question,can the pros that make the powerpoint type videos shown make it downloadable on RIO? it would be a great help in memorising the points of the video while i am on to school or on the bus to somewhere...that would such a great help!

79d in SB

do u consider oop float and lead the river if turn goes c/c ?

I feel like we risk too much and  not pick up enough

after betting 1.8k he stiill have 16k behind 

I think our c/r looke really bluffy, do we really  crai with any value hand ?  



Oct. 24, 2013 | 11:01 a.m.

 ya,  a  session with some low mid stakes mtt would be nice 

Oct. 23, 2013 | 7:23 a.m.

min. 13:30 w A7s:
My standard reaction vs a C/R would be to B/C cause on this High_low_Low boards we have lots of combos of TPs/OPs which usually only wanna B/C and hence I would play here with my range which wanna continue vs a C/R more of a B/Call-gameplan instead of a 3betting-gameplan OTF.

Nice 2nd Vid btw so far:)

Oct. 20, 2013 | 9:18 p.m.

this is gonna be epic

Comment | halvadron1 commented on Toy Gaming (part 1)

Great first vid on the basics - thank you for it!

One general question which I spotted and has not rly to do with the topic:

When you work personally with CREV, don`t you set up in the options stuff like %-Rake, Rakecap and Rakeback,

so that the EV-results will get even a more correct picture?

Oct. 18, 2013 | 8:18 a.m.

QTo with ~10bb OTB at bigger162  38:00 

 plan on r/c or r/f ?

seems like a standard open push, any reason u decide to deviate from that? 

KQo 3way pot on ATxr 39:30 sunday500

can u elaborate more on this?

looks like u r repping nothing ,do u have any value hand to  c/r instead of just bet out ?

I think a c/c and continue if we improve ott, if turn goes c/c , then bet any river ,that would make much more sense 

Oct. 15, 2013 | 9:06 a.m.

more concept/theory videos plz

and have to say that sound quality of some videos is not really good although the content is good

it just kill the whole video

Oct. 6, 2013 | 3:42 a.m.

In the first hand (JTs), you said that you like in general to lead turns when the midcard paired and you have a lot of trips in your range.

Here it was not the case cause it was 6max and you openraised from MP, but HU it could be the case.

But what are then the weakest hands you lead for value with OTT?

Do you have a mixed strategy, like leading then Trips+ for value and Draws without SD-value and C/Calling TPs and other madehands + Draws with sd-Value?

Oct. 4, 2013 | 5:39 p.m.

It used to be that videos were promptly uploaded to be visible at 1pm EST. Lately it seems to be random, sometimes they'll be released as late as 5 or 6pm. Or later. My other complaint is that the "upcoming videos" space used to accurately say which videos were actually... upcoming. Now the space is VERY often empty. It's a shame because that page used to be operated in a very professional manner IMO.

Oct. 4, 2013 | 4:08 p.m.

maybe we should invite Moorman here and make some elite videos 

Oct. 3, 2013 | 1:28 p.m.

Hand History | halvadron1 posted in MTT: WCOOP $215 8max pre AK vs HSPLO reg
UTG: litovchenko8: 7001
UTG1: Ghoyteep: 16785
LJ: neravenstvo: 9730
HJ: deki76: 13050
CO: Skjervoy: 14613
BN: Biryk: 26122
SB: dumanis26: 10004
BB: Nekitocsic: 2055
utg raiser is not good, running 32/23 around 65 hands, his rfi utg is 40% in 15 samples, beem doing some 0 equity bluffs.

skjervoy plays something like 23/19 ,only have 3bet once before this hand, show up with AK, he didnt play crazy, I'd say more on a solid side.

I've been running something like 18/12 in 65 hands , zero 3bet/4bet attempt , never get to showdown, most of the pots I win is on the flop or timing bluff in 3way pots.

I dont think I have significant dynamic/history with these two opponents.

And there's not much 3bet/4bet wars on the table.
Preflop (180) (8 Players)
dumanis26 was dealt A K
litovchenko8 folds, Ghoyteep raises to 240, neravenstvo folds, deki76 folds, Skjervoy raises to 620, Biryk folds, dumanis26 raises to 1740, Nekitocsic folds, Ghoyteep folds, Skjervoy raises to 2950, dumanis26 folds
So with the reads I think its def a 4bet for value , is my size good due to the deeper stack?

Skjervoy didnt think for a long time and click it back and then hero went to tank.

this is my first 3bet/4bet on the table after 8 orbits. He should def gimme credit for having a hand here even though its a really good spot for a cold 4 ball given the reads.

I'm not sure he's capable of 5bet/fold here since we didnt have that many histories

So I think he always has it. And therefore I should fold.

If I have a more aggro image or dynamic I'll def go with it

Is this a high-five monitor shove or ez fold? or should I cold call the 3bet at first?

thx for ur comments.
Final Pot
Skjervoy wins 3960
