Wow the rake in the games where i played in the us was much higher.
5% on winning sessions would be the best rake ever, since normally u pay 5% online which amounts to 10% on every pot you win.
Not paying when u lose and only at the end would be the sickest rake structure ever.

Min 36, when u flop qq set I don’t understand why we check to call. If we want to play slow is a bet not the better option? Also do not understand the bet on the river as he likely has missed and probably won’t call much. As such would it not be better to induce, or in other words is it not too late to bet now?

You asked for feedback:
-I like a slow pace. So two tables is way enough. I like it when you focus and talk about the most I portent aspects of the hand ( vs minor details) and when u explain key aspects of your hands relativ to your overall strategy
- your sound quality is great ur lighting is fine. Much more important for us for you to focus on the game than that stuff.

It is standard today everyone to min bet preflop. I have been looking for some theoretical analysis of why a min raise pre flop is optimal but cannot find any videos around this topic.
Since this is our most often decision the combination of preflop ranges and corresponding bet size seems the most important question whatsoever.
The issue I have with min raises is that it gives a price to the B.B. that can be called very very often, which is precisely what we need to avoid.
So again I am looking for articles or videos explaining why min bets are gto ideal or not.

Is there an easy way to navigate to part 1

I play in the us 2/5 and buy in for 1k. I never lost more than 15k and think a 20k roll is sufficient.
If poker is ur only income maybe u would want to have a little more though.
I think if you go 100x ur missing ur potential to move up instakes.

Love the video. Good speed, amount of information, theory and practice.
Just signed up for first time ever for elite, with the goal to learn PLO, of which I am a beginner. Appreciate how you cover basic and advanced topics, teach the theory and put it all in perspective via the hand history at fast speed to allow me to soak up lots of relevant info.

So i have just listed to this vid for 2 min. Coming here to learn about the theory of pre flop ranges. The first thing I am told is that there is no set rule and I should make good decisisions.
This is not helpful.
I come here paying $100 per month not for someone to make me feel better but to actually learn something.
Will listen to the rest, but wanted to share initial feedback

decent video. it was a bit too basic for me. i would have liked some examples or math to underline your points and arguments and to make what you are teaching more tangible.
i.e. when you talk about what hands to flat with you could show some hand chart etc.

It sounds to me like in your first strategy you did not play enough hands and in your second approach you played to many.
I play PLO live as well and so 9handed games are common.
I think the key is to have good hand selection. If you start playing bad hands you will end up commiting too many chips and be in bad spots on the flop and dripping your stacks away much more quickly than you can connect with the board to double up.
I don't value AA very high unless they are well connected because we play multi pots most often. My focus is on having relative high cards that are all connected. I do 3bet and play an aggressive game but i am tight at the same time and try to create FE in addition to my EV overall. This works because i never just bluff and show up with lots of nutz. This also allows me to position selective river bluffs IP.
I do agree that the isolation does not work. So do not isolate but do bet for value IP. I.e. I would always 3bet j-high rundown with at least 1 suit or better in LP or open for pot. These hands do not show up that often anyways. It seems like i play only 25-35% of my range which tends to be higher when there are more limped pots of course.
I cannot see how an 80% range can beat live poker where you crush by having a stronger range in general. The name of the game is to value bet big and add some additional FE.

Phil i just watched this and heard your comment about the $10 deal.
I agree with you that this is the best deal around. Training videos do not exist for $10 a month anywhere else.
However we really all want the $100 package and that just is too steep for everyone. So i think that might create some hesitation. it feels now i can only afford the cheap crappy part of a product and that really hurts. I am talking about my personal feelings here of course.
All that said I like what you did from a pricing perspective. I think its great that you managed to innovate around pricing relative to your competition and i think it is a step and innovation that was needed in order to allow for higher quality content.
The world usually does not recognize innovation until it has transformed it so your experience is kinda normal.

very good video.
i appreciate the time you take to stop and explain things. and the fact that you show us tools you use and do some math.
very good "speed", not boring and fast flow with enough hands covered but everything you say is relevant.
thank you. please more like this also from other coaches.
so far im not liking many vids other than from the master.

not a fan of these formats.
I might as well turn of the volume, most of what you are saying is obvious stuff like "this is a decent flop"
That makes sense since u are busy playing 4 tables of zoom and have no time to actually teach.
im here to learn stuff not watch 1600 hands per hour.
I would prefer a video that focus on quality learning content vs lots of content with little value.
Phil has made an excellent review video where everything he said was useful and to the point.

Thx Phil. This vid was awesome. I am learning PLO and it really helps to hear every key decision point explained by you for each hand.
At the same time you went thru the hands fairly quickly.
More like this would be great.
