I found the aggregated report in this video very interesting. I've been using GTO+ (its cheaper than PIO) to support me doing some of the homeworks up till now. This sort of sweep is probably the next step up in terms of work I could do.
Can anyone point me at a good article or something on what an aggregate report is and how to build one? I found the below link, which I will watch at some point, but no idea who the guy is or if he is giving out good information.
Thanks for your help

The homeworks topic would work too. I think some of the homeworks leave you scrabbling in the dark a bit (yeah, lets just go through the entirety of postflop bet sizing as a homework COUGH COUGH), would be nice to know where other people are going and to see if I'm moving too far off base.

Just joined that discord, seems as dead as you said it is.
It would be pretty easy to put up a basic discord chat group if there were a few of us to use it

I'm guessing that since you have released a bunch more FTGUs they are selling pretty well - but there's no discussion in the forums. Is there any way to guide people to discuss their homeworks on here a bit more, or something like that? Its a lot easier to stick to something you are doing with other people.

Hi, when talking about adjusting to stack sizes in this video, Owen says that when there are a lot of reshove stacks behind you should be playing a "Tight Blocker Range".
I'm not 100% sure what that means, although I have a rough idea. I think I over adjust in these spots and end up being too tight. For example, lets say I am in CO with 40bb, and both the SB and BB have 15-20bb.
My original starting range in this spot would be a 33% range:
What I might actually play in this situation would be about 20%:
I might even drop the lower AXs and pocket pairs if both blinds are at 15bb or less.
Is this too big a reduction?

What does "Get it in" means?
It means going all in with your chips. In this context it specifically means preflop, but it can also mean going all in at other stages of a hand. You will sometimes see it written in poker forums and chat groups as GII. You might also see the acronym AIPF, which means All In Pre Flop, and means the same here.
I think you have slightly misunderstood the video. You don't need to open tighter preflop when you are deep stacked, but you need to be less willing to get all your chips in the middle without seeing a flop.
So when you have 10 big blinds, you have to be willing to go all in with quite a lot of hands, for reasons explained in the video. At 20 big blinds you still GII quite a lot, but nowhere near as often, because you don't need to risk your tournament life as lightly as you did with 10BB.
As you get deeper stacked the effect is even greater. At 200bb at the start of a deep stacked tournament you might only want to go all in with Aces or Kings.

Hi - got a basic question about studying shove spots, having recently finished the video on playing a shove/fold stack. I think the TLDR of my question is "Do you have to take every marginally +EV shove?"
The attached picture is a shot of the table spot I am trying to recreate. Small field tournament, 20 players remaining, all already ITM but pay jumps are tiny until ~final 8. It's a fairly soft field (it's got me doing well in it lol), except when ozzieowen decides he hasn't got enough tables running and regs some of mine. I've set up the simulation in Multi Table ICM, I believe correctly. Ive been studying the hand from both my POV and that of SB, who has a similar stack.
As the screenshot shows, theres a lot of very marginal hands in the SB shoving range. The temptation when I am studying is to say something like "I know people are going to make big mistakes, so why should I risk my stack on a +0.01 shove? Im going to remove everything that earns less than +0.05 and look again". Is this reasonable?
I'm probably missing out on times when people overfold, and that's probably quite a lot at this stage of the tourney, but I dont really know for sure.

Hi, great video thanks for making. I know I am bad at folding so this was very needed.
I was surprised in the ATo hand when you said your flop strategy on the KT3r board would be to overbet or check. Can you explain why please?
