The video that I needed like air!
From NL50 to NL500 in one year starts today (13.03.2022)
Today, more than ever, I really have the confidence that I can do it!
Thank you so much for this precious gift, Luke!

In your opinnion, is it necessery to fill in Donk sizes in 3b pots, when it comes to 100bb game? Can i leave a Donk sizes field completely empty or it's might effect (ruin) the solution?

Jan. 21, 2022 | 9:37 a.m.

Agreed! It's makes very much sense. It's why i with sympathy watch players who are willing to bet x/r big 2x.

Jan. 20, 2022 | 3:59 p.m.

ty for couple more hints i will check pot and 2x pot as well!

Jan. 20, 2022 | 12:55 a.m.

I see :)
Thank you for sharing your opinion!
Thank you sincerely for your time!
Much love <3

Ohh now i get, but the field "Maximum spread (in chips)" i believe should be empty right?
I would also love to hear your opinion on this matter:
"Keep in mind a lot of them are just using solver libraries to train. For example, GTO Wizard has MTT and HU SNG solutions for every spot. No need to solve everything yourself."
Are they really doing so now? The only way to compete against them to use some of these things? If you believe so, let me please know may be some other sites/apps that you think are must have/worth it!

Jan. 19, 2022 | 9:32 p.m.

Wow thanks for opening my eyes! Are GTO Wizard are the best in the business right now? It's really worth it?

Jan. 19, 2022 | 9:29 p.m.

Can you please explain to me how/why it's works.

Jan. 19, 2022 | 9:21 p.m.

Wow! Ty for the hint now i see:
Minimum bet size (in chips) Maximum spread (in chips)
And what exactly I should write there? To be honest, I don't quite understand.

Without knowing how to run this im just feeling that im getting exploited over and over again vs all those 25% 33%

Jan. 19, 2022 | 9:03 p.m.

I find out that they are using 25% 33% sizes very often!

Couple years ago i saw that NL HU players were using 25%-33% sizes just On The Flop, now they are using those OTT and OTR as well.
And now SNG HU Top players also using 25%-33% sizes OTT and OTR.

Let's say we play SNG HU Hyper Turbo (25bb deep) it's a limping pot and we want to have 25%-33% bet sizes OTT and OTR
If we put such digits into programm.. there definetely will be a situation where we didn't CBet on the flop (there will be 40chips in a pot), so as a result then there is no longer will be possible to bet 25% on the turn (because big blind is 20chips), so in this case OTT you can only BET at least 50% of the pot. So all the calculation with 25% turn bets and 25% river bets goes straight to hell. Because now PIO shows me that i could possibly bet 25% OTT and 25% OTR which is not.

My question is:
How to correctly calculate such a situation?
How they doing it?

Jan. 19, 2022 | 9:02 p.m.


I can't find such settings, but I found a slide that hints that this can be done:

Please tell me if you know!

I have always felt myself that I have lack of volume. Regulars from the limits above often ask me a question: "Why do you still play this limit?" "You're a lot stronger, stop wasting your time. Go higher."
I myself think that this mental block is deeper than it seems, because I did not find out today that I am not playing enough. I feel it for more than a year, but I haven’t done anything yet. This is probably due to the fact that I use aggressive bankroll management, and the fear of not playing an A-game makes me think that I can lose everything in a flash. I believe that if I made the bankroll management somewhat more conservative, this would considerably bring me closer to become "The A-game player".

Thanks a lot for asking, Elliot Roe. I feel that while answering your question, I finally got closer to the solution of "What's an action i can take to start fixing that bottleneck?".

antoha1998 (one of the best NL 6max grinder)

Approximate transcription of the dialogue (from russian):


Antoha, what do you think about HUD, is it overvalued?
Are you currently playing with a HUD, or on your limits is there no point in it?


Solver is overvalued, HUD the only thing that is really important.


Guys, What do you think about this?

July 5, 2017 | 8:50 p.m.

I'm not gonna lie to you, Bradley.
You video series "Training for Poker Like and Elite Athlete"
Is the MAIN reason, why i subscribed on RIO!

Your series, this is the only missing puzzle, which I just didn't have.

And i believe that in-depth work on your videos, and conscious application in practice. Will allow me to become the best in my chosen discipline!

Immensely grateful to you!

In other words, if he wants to rise from the lowest limits, to the highest.

Desire to work, from him, more than enough.

Maybe there's something else besides software?
What kind of investment is highly recommended?

June 11, 2017 | 6:12 p.m.

Hello, guys

Not many people in sng thread know about pio, so let me please ask a question here.
Pio can hep develop sng games, for example SNG HU HT?
Or programm is intended only for cash games?

June 2, 2017 | 7:40 p.m.

We didn't see showdowns, so i can only assume he runs good.
If you marked him as regular i don;t think he is joking too much.

The question is how skilful is this reg?

As value: 66, 22, 79ss, J9ss, QTss (too thin)
As bluff: KJss, K9ss, 78ss, 89ss.

If he just "good", i think : 66, 22 , QTss, KJss, K9ss, he will probably bet river.
79ss (close) but i think he will bet it too.
And x/r only J9ss.

"Skillful and masterly" reg can decide to play so all these hands imo:

66, 22, 79ss, J9ss, QTss
KJss, K9ss, 78ss, 89ss.

April 9, 2017 | 2:15 a.m.

flop and turn is okey imo.
again depens on opp. can he float?
he might have dd hands, 77, AQ, AK not sure about 22 and A2ss.
In bluff range i see only two hands KT with one diamond, and KJ with one diamond.
These two, I would turn into a bluff!

Without speciific reads just fold imo.

April 9, 2017 | 1:41 a.m.

Without exact reads imo we have to fold.
Good layd.

April 9, 2017 | 1:25 a.m.

66 its just one time incident, Q8 / KQ / JT / 99 / J9 all those hands vilain probably bets on flop or x/r.
I would call his little x/r on turn too.
I dont see any reason 2 bluff this river, especially agaisnt this opp.
Good check back.

April 7, 2017 | 1:05 a.m.

K3, K5, K6, 33, 55, 66, 42, 35, 47, any 2 diamond.
Imo we are too deep to call here with AKhh.
Nice layd.

April 7, 2017 | 12:58 a.m.

In villain is unknown:

33 / 44 / 34s / K9 / A9 / 52cc / 56cc / 57cc / 67cc / T6cc / T7cc / T9cc / Q2cc / Q5cc / Q6cc / Q7cc / Q9cc/ QTcc / K2cc / K5cc / K6cc / K7cc / K9cc / KTcc / KQcc /

ott call or push both are fine imo.
fold is a mistake.

April 7, 2017 | 12:50 a.m.

It's pretty ugly to call the check/raise because there is a chance my flush draw is dominated.

Here is the answer.

Easy fold after his x/r

April 7, 2017 | 12:34 a.m.

I prefer cback turn too in most of the time.
I don't think you line is very bad.. imo we can play 76cc this way sometime..

QT and J9 improve but I turn a lot of equity so I barrel. I think he
would raise most 2p+ here.

Agree. If your villain is not good regular+, he usually x/r 2p+, right, in this case your river bet make sense. But between standart size, and overbet i prefer overbet. Because i think it's will be tuff to fold 9x, strong 8x K8/A8 for most recreational players on this bet size.

So yes. Imo you have too overbet.

You can also play, check turn, overbet river. But 2d not the best river for this line.
There is few hands we can play so. KJ+, QQ, KK, AA.

So for me. In most of the time. It's check back turn, and check on the river.

April 6, 2017 | 5:20 p.m.

Okay mate! I will try so :)

April 6, 2017 | 1:40 p.m.

Thank You, Resolve for comment

And want to apologize that I can not write off in your topics. Because I do not consider myself competent in the 6max games. If you played hu, with pleasure would share m opinion.
