I might just fold this one if it's a 9-handed table. Calling here is better than 3betting IMO.

So we raise SB with kind of a wide range 100bb deep and BB calls. Flop comes QsJs2s. Why does Pio wanna check the vast majority of our range and not cbet?

I hope this player council thinks what's best for not just regs but also recs. I mean if it's four or five regs, they're naturally gonna think from the POV of regs and not recs. So like there's gotta be some sort of balance, like the RIO staff I hope are gonna see the big picture and look at the situation from all angles. I don't express myself well, but I hope you see my point.

42s at 3:30 is actually prolly a profitable shove if folded to you, I put it in HoldemResources and put some kind of a prize structure and it said that it's minus 0.01bb to shove if BB calls 32.6%. And in reality he just doesn't call that wide. But on the other hand if you think you have a little bit of an edge, I guess you can pass up that spot. Like if he calls 23%, it's 0.1bb profitable.

We are jamming JJ too.

I think KTs at 40 min is good enough to shove. I don't like the limp. I like the defends.

Q5s or was it Q4s MP M = about 1.2 would have been a jam I think. Don't remember the time. A6o 30:00 is I think not very close, it's a pretty clear fold. A6s is a kind of close jam.

Edit: And actually you corrected yourself after I paused the thing, saying it's not close at all. Anyway, thanks for this series! I'm an MTT player and definitely learn new stuff from this.

I think if you're ITM and not close to the final table, then dollar EV shouldn't influence your decisions almost at all, so I think this is just a really std jam.

QTs 39:30 is a clear re-jam. Only situation that would suck is if the flatter calls your shove with AQ or AT. I guess just flatting the shove wouldn't be bad either.

I think it is cool that you're doing MTT videos. The small bets are really fascinating.

At 2 min I think I'm just shoving 96s cos it's slightly +EV, and at least in theory I would like to minraise a hand like 97o there cos it would be slightly -EV to shove.

But then again what you said about minraising having an even bigger expectation might be true. Haven't done that much research about this.

Edit: Didn't see it was a Super Knockout. I would fold in a Super KO. But an interesting situation nonetheless.

22 UTG 8-handed M6 is a fold. 44 is a close shave.

Post | qwerty21 posted in MTT: Omaha MTT Strategy


I was wondering if there's material here about Omaha tourneys. I'm sure there's some material on Runitonce, so links or recommendations would be appreciated. Like I have trouble with the math aspect with shallow stacks for example, like what do you shove UTG with M4. Also just how wide I can minraise from MP and stuff. Advice too is all welcome. I'm doing okay playing like three Omaha tourneys per day along with my 27 Holdem tourneys, but in a lot of spots I'm just guessing, spots that you don't encounter in cash and like you need different kind of math.

Post | qwerty21 posted in MTT: Marginal Shoves Pre


I have been checking shoving ranges with HoldemResources recently, and I have two pretty general questions.

1. What is enough edge to shove with for example M4, if we for ex. have +20% ROI? Should I take +0.01bb spot?

2. What if the players behind have a good amount tighter calling ranges than Nash? How much wider should we shove? Of course this is kind of the same question as the first one, if we just adjust players calling ranges to what we think they call with in reality.

Sorry if these questions are too general, but would really appreciate replies.

Why do you cbet 100% of the pot so often, especially on dry boards?

Q3o defend to a minraise from the button is pretty bad IMO, not knowing his tendencies at all. It just plays so poorly and you're OOP obviously.

But I mean that's virtually the only hand that I found irritating, having watched about 15 of your videos. And who knows, maybe I'm wrong about that defend.
