Also any videos that focus on MTT maths eg ev calculations in a hand?
I'm looking to go deeper into tournament theory. I've been around the site for a long time but haven't seen any of these vids before.

Thank you for the suggestions.
Another q (if any1 can help): are there any theory vids specifically for MTT's that will give me help in understanding slight variations on structures (and potential adjustments in strategies required) -rebuys -pko's -2nd chances etc etc?
Even if the resources are not on runitonce. As much as I would like at this stage of my career to easily grasp every nuance of the game, I still need assistance :(

To follow up: where there are audio contributions by both parties on an ongoing basis rather than a 1-off leakfinder by the pro :)

I'd like to see a mentor series where an MTT player teaches another player how to get better.

I want to emphasise: not a beginner series but a good player being leakfound to potentially turn into a v good player.

(If there was a series already made along these lines, would be happy if you could point me in the direction instead.)

Hey Chris
Have gone through all the vids :)
What’s the plan for 2020 on RIO vids? New direction or similar themes/subjects?

Hi Andreas,
If you are answering any q's (see last post):
any poker a-ha moments?
any plo a-ha moments?
how do you think about a pool eg 100PLO zoom on stars? (i am aware that the pool isn't constant for the exact same players every day.)
does it enter your mind where your skill compares to -the rest of the pool -an individual player you are in a hand with, or possibly do you make the assumption you are likely a better player than opponent(s)?

Thanks for the reply Andreas

I had an idea for a series of vids I would like to have used if I ever got to the applicable level to be a RIO coach:

take a microstakes player who wants to -move up stakes -be a pro -be a winner. Watch them play/talk to them about how they think about the game/assess their mindset then draw up a 6 month plan on how they can improve inc -live play goals -training drills. Then 6 months later do the same again with obviously they're at a higher level than before.

So it'd be a long term relationship with a student/subscriber or multiple 1's

Q: to what level do you think you could take the said player? (On that topic, could you as a teacher/coach make them a better player than you are?)
Q2: does it depend on the player/student? (What's the spectrum of outcomes?)

Am an essential member.

Have been using the RIO app for the last 48 hours downloading quite a few vids.

Trying to download another 2 but doesn’t seem to work.

Can anyone look to fix please or give me a diagnosis.

Hey Andreas
Welcome to RIO!
Am a fan of the interviews you had previously done on YouTube.
Q: as a learning/teaching tool do you think this type of content is better than a standard live play vid with commentary over the top?
What formats of vids are coming up?

Aug. 25, 2019 | 10:38 a.m.

Hi Viktor

In the 1st HUPLO strategy vid you said you wanted the series to be 9 videos long. I could only see 2. Did you release them under a different title?

Hi Nick
I have some q's:
i) are you familiar with Tai Lopez?
ii) what do you think is optimal: a fastidious routine that you never break or a rougher routine but you get the odd extreme experience that provides radical insight? (You can only have 1!)
iii) do you feel you have a tendency to fall into negative thought patterns? do you feel you have control over this (now)?

Hey Nick
Just popping in to say have been bingeing on your youtube channel over the last couple of weeks. Really enjoyed, really got a lot out of them.
I don't think I'm going to commit a lot more time to poker study in relation to playing/having a career but still find your thoughts (I like the q&a vids most) v useful as can transfer the general ideas to my main pursuit: film writing.
Keep releasing please. I intend to follow for as long as you keep producing content!

Thank you for the reply.

Post | ralphcig789 posted in Chatter: Essential subscription app


I am considering joining. 2 q's please:

i) is the app working fine for essential sub? (Where I can download some vids and watch on move)

ii) I use an ipod touch, I think it should be fine to use app. Any confirmation/relevant info?

Hi Disharmonist

Thank you for the reply. I will address some points:

It's a common joke/half-truth on forums that Jungle is autistic. Whether it's true or not, I dont know. I couldn't have put in a nice photo if I'd have just said [generic poker player].

It's something he is aware of.

If autism doesn't involve necessarily having exceptional maths skills that's my bad. The 3x guys I mentioned above (Cates, Tammet and Barnett) which I came across all have math gifts and autism has been mentioned (whether valid or not).

Your 3rd point I will definitely elaborate on (though hope somebody else contributes 1st embellishing on my original argument in relation to that).

Last few points will also consider before replying though from my gut 'endurance, resilience and persistence' in a single session is much less important than in a physical sport though 'improving your skillsets by training and repeating' is essential in poker, as in any competitive activity or most daily activities if you have a desire to be competent at the task.
