Hey all, I've been working through FTGU PLO and have recently focused in on my pre-flop game. While I have been able to use the course as a good way to understand the core concepts, I'm having trouble 'checking my work' when looking at old hands. In the videos Emty uses MonkerSolver to get a GTO range, but I don't have the PC to run sims and don't know where else to get pre-flop GTO ranges.
So when I'm reviewing my sessions and I want to know if I played a hand correctly pre-flop what should I do? Just go on my FTGU notes, or should I invest in something like the PLO Matrix or the PLO Preflop Helper from MasterMind?

Hey there, I'm a recent purchases of FTGU PLO and right now I'm working through the pre-flop sections. While I feel like my pre-flop understanding is greatly improving, my bankroll is taking a nose dive. I can add the exact results later but I'm currently losing -35bb/100 over ~3.5k hands. Obviously a small sample size, but I think it's unlikely to be entirely variance.
My big leak that I've noticed, again I can add stats later, is that I seem to think I have equity on the flop/turn so I call/jam on my opponent. Then we flip the cards and I end up staring down at a 10-30% chance of drawing my outs - not ideal. Occasionally I hit, but the majority of the time I don't and now I'm down 50 buy-ins in a span of two weeks.
So my question is really, what do I need to study? Should I keep grinding through the pre-flop videos or skip to one of the later videos that might stem the bleeding.
