Love this format, hope you will do more of this (and more often), even without shipping a tournament. I mostly care to see you getting down to a final table in a big field with all the Vpp’d hands.
Keep it up.

Hello Lucas.
The quality of the video itself it’s outstanding but I have a criticism to make.
Hearing you say before every Thinking process “I think” 350 times in a single video it makes it redundant and difficult to follow.
Maybe you say it out of respect to not insult these others top reg, but we know it’s your opinion, no need to say “I think” every 4 seconds.
Don't take my criticism too harshly.

Great series Ryan and as mentioned by somebody else I love the fact that you say each time if it’s a good or bad board for leading. It might sound obvious, but as an essential video I’m sure many will find this very helpful.
Keep it up with the good work.

Nice video and nice reply at the same time.
I agree that some of the points of Ashkar might be inaccurate in certain contests.

Maybe we can open a tread in the forum to add all the possible suggestions from everybody, I guess would be helpful.

Nice video and welcome in Rio!
I just have one problem with your videos:
I’m always watching RIO videos in my bed before sleeping and when you pass from a hand to another with that animation, I feel like an epileptic attack it’s incoming! :D
I know that I sound exaggerate but when the white RIO logo dissolves and you pass to the next hand it’s extremely disturbing for the eyes, especially in the dark.
Thanks again anyway and keep up with the good job.

Very nice video, hope you will consider again to do more of this.

Nice series Jae, really enjoyed it.
Just one thing please: When there’s action by Hero please proced slower because sometimes i literally rewinded even 2 times to see what happened in certain hands post flop.
I know that sometimes are abc hands but it’s interesting to see the sizes etc. Especially when after the hands you give an opinion about that.
Thanks again and keep it up.

It’s funny you said that, because after these research it appears literally the opposite. :)

Hey there, are you referring to Chinese apps? Just to realise which kind of games you’re referring to.

Hi Henry, nice video as always!
I´m a live player that is tryng to get back to the online since also this coronavirus has forced me home. I`m playing 1/2 and 2/4 in the casino with a winrate of 28$/hour, nothing special but enough to make me happy.
I was having a big bankroll but some personal problem in my family obliged me to invest most of it to help them, so I´m grinding my way up again.
I have some questions, many uberbasic, but would love to have your opinion:

-Apart from watching these videos, that I`m happily doing already, how would you approach the tables counting also the rake and all? I would love to play Zoom on PS but never used properly the HUD
-what are the most important stats apart th first obvious 3?
-poker tracker or holdem manager?
-wich stake would you start also counting that i have a roll of 12k?
-what do you use to have the autoraise preflop to 2,2BB?
-how can i have that amazing randomizer integrated to the tables?

Sorry for the long list of question, I know many of them are depending on many personal factors, still would love your opinion OR THE ONE OF ANYBODY ELSE THAT WOULD LOVE TO HELP:

bets regards,

Hi Gary nice video!
min @50.21 why don’t you bet flop and turn IP with nut Fd and gutshot? I tought it would be a pure bet. Thanks for your answer.

You are a good reason to keep my élite subscription. Keep it up!

Hello Darren, thanks for the effort but after the initial excitement of seeing a live play on PokerMaster (where I play myself), i was a little bit disappointed.
It appears to me you didn’t play a lot in this site, because many decisions you took were not optimal IMHO. Obviously those decision would have been good on, but here you need to make many adjustments.

I wish to see more videos on pokermaster when you will feel more confident about it.
Don’t take it personal, I loved your previous video.

Great video Darren, keep it up with this kind of videos!
We already have hundreds of “live play” videos and I believe these psychological videos are very useful.

Hi, first of all really nice video and love your thinking processes.
Min @32,40 table 3: you say that you like to raise 99 on that 876 board and makes sense of course, but what would you do if oppo decide to 3bet you flop? He might do it sometimes with a hand like that and might put us on a tuff decision.

Hi Dekkers, min. @10:00 why do you think it´s a good raise with ATo on table 2?
True, the lead of just 1 euro it´s very weak but still it´s a 4way 3betted pot. Don´t you think somebody has most likely at least a king and will not fold it?

Feb. 2, 2018 | 5:05 p.m.

Nice video.
Min @36.40 we're bet/calling right?
I know it might look like a stupid question but I always find myself with a lot of doubts when I have these combodraws with these stacks.

Oct. 7, 2017 | 3:22 a.m.

Nice video as always.
Min @6.18 you decided to flat flop with AK probably due to the small cbet, but what's our plan here?
We have almost no redraw apart from the straight and even if we hit one of our overcard oppo could have AQ/Kq and we put ourself in a difficult situation.

Thanks a lot the video Tom, it's great to have some good material about 5 cards PLO.
Please keep adding new material about that, I'm sure many of us appreciate since especially in the cash live scene, it's the most requested game by fishes/whales.

Comment | ottodix commented on Live Poker Primer

Nice video, I would love to have more material like that from you, since I'm focusing on the live lately.
Hand analysis like the one you made can be very useful, at least for me.
