I am very happy that I watched that nice video of yours. I am using Vision also and do study 3 bP SB vs BU atm. Starting from my next study session I will look more closely at which hand classes the solver uses for the different lines and try to find answers of why is that so.
With that and other videos of rio e.g imbajimba I am more convinced of how important it is to know the boards where we have high betting going. And to know which hand classes to use for the different sizing and why.

Hi Cory,
Are there any videos out there where this concept is explained?

April 9, 2021 | 11:35 p.m.

Thx for your replies. I was focusing on fold% only. I guess if we had one betsize only than the fold% would be different.
I will try to figure out which kind of hands OOP prefers for each sizing.

April 9, 2021 | 11:34 p.m.

The stack off range (44%) from the IP seems to be the same when OOP bet 25% psb vs 100% psb. Why not to lead our whole range 25% psb? Please see pictures below.

Why is the pot 17 BB?
If you are in the BB the pot should be 15BB!
And if you call in the SB the pot shoud be 16BB!

Could you explain the player profiling? Sounds interesting.

Often you know yourself where you suck.

I for myself get into autopilot game when playing to many hand. Than I do feel like lost to. I can't pick up enough information to compet.

Also I do call to much in big pots at the micros.

I do not use the notes I have taken effectively.

I did used to import Pokerjuice ranges into PPT. Is there a way to do the same with more near Solver Ranges?

I do have the same dreams, haven't work that hard for it though. But there are more important things in my life, where I do have to focus at. Like family health job. But as I do have a quite a lot of time I do want to spent ist for Poker, too. But must importantly, everything should be making fun. So if you do not feel like playing, than play less. And if you play, than play less tables. Not for building your br, just for learning the game more deeply. go down in some stakes. Or try to play some life, there you could have a more easy way to make money. And continue to lay 2-3 tables of Omaha online. Just some ideas which could help. Most successful people enjoy what they are doing. So loosing money which matters do not satisfy. So playing lower could compensate this. Also playing to much can be annoying.

Have you had any Coachings, yet. This could give you some confident. As I know you playing over bankrolled, this could be a good investment

Jan. 9, 2019 | 7:42 p.m.

ah ok thx. Flop Strategy from Leszek Badurowicz covers this concept also very nicely.

Jan. 7, 2019 | 10:22 a.m.

Happy New Year!
Welcome back to PLO - yeahhh

But now, when I'm in bad shape equity-wise on the flop and my opponent checks to me, I'm going to be checking a lot more often than before.

Do you have some examples, please?

Jan. 2, 2019 | 9:45 p.m.

Invest $0,9 to win $2,7 -> 1/3 -> so it has to work in 1 out of 3 times / in 25% to BE on the flop. If we can't get any folds we probably have ~20% to improve to TTP or Trips.

Or in 22,5% of the time we will get our FD on the turn and can keep the pressure on. We could still have a set on the turn when betting out FD on the turn.

In rare cases, (~8,5%) one of our opponents could call with an OESD like 34, 46 or 68 with a BDFD.

If I do understand right. You would prefer checking on that flop with our hand because the SB want fold enough and we can only continue on a few turn run outs?

What hands would you prefer betting? And what are the advantages of checking? We can keep worse dd-hands and bottom / 2nd pair hands in which can potentially be dominated on turn or river. I can't see to many advantages in checking. If we can't improve, than we can't call any turn bet which can result us folding the best hand.

Thx for all your comments.

I do like the line a lot, but only if Villain knows we do / it is common to value bet at least TP on the river.

Heros preflop perceived range contains a lot of xxyy-, high / middling cards and less JJ+ combos. Hero will call the flop bet with a lot of bd-draws. ~40% of the time Hero will improve to 2-pair or better(12%), FD(25%) or Wrap(1,3%) on the turn.

Villain probably expect Hero to stab here often with his draw, air and made hand range, so he can go for a x-raise (thin value / protection / bluff) with his TP/OP and draws, especially as the SPR is that low.

As Hero did x-back the flop he has a lot of hands with sd-value and less air in his range with whom he wants to get to showdown. As Villain didn't bet on the river he shouldn't have that much KK, AA (1 A Hero blocks) in his range. Therefor Villain has a hard time calling of the river bet, although Mr. do not rep that much sweets here.

Villain probably has to call with any A5+ here. In Heros shoes we probably have to bet at least all QK+ for value, so that we can bluff here.

I am curious about Mr. Sweets comments.

I am sry to here. You have given some good advice to the community.
But there are also a world out side of poker, so not much lost. All the best.

What do you do with the hands in HM2 like "bad play" or "good lines"?
The "good lines" probably comes in to your note book which you reread every day and the "bad lines" you will just review once in a while, like every week once so they want repeat over and over again, or comparing all the "bad lines" with each other if there are similarities, like calling to much cbets in 3bet pots.
would you xplain it more in detail? Have you any updates according improvements of your game?
