Thanks, i've played a lot of MTTs and PLO cash but not so much PLO MTT's. That was my instinct too and I went with it.

Your jamming range for ben is way too tight. If you think Ben is folding 88s down here you are insane. Ben is the shortest at the table by a good margin and as such gets to play closer to chip EV jams rather than ICM.
Secondly you can't exactly run this sim through HRC when some stacks are 40bb+ That isn't what this software is designed for. I ran the sim and have this call winning over 1bb here which is huge.

700 is not a sample size for tournaments. Get better don't worry about this metric yet.
Sept. 8, 2020 | 6:40 a.m.
Blinds 80k/160k/ 20k
UTG 6m (assumed reg)
SB 1.8m (very tight wants to ladder haven't seen anything from them)
BB 4.5m (Weaker player pretty happy to call 3bets despite ICM)
UTG min raises to 320k, (he has previously folded a MR open on the btn to me.
What is your play here? Do we 3 bet and try to pick up the 640k or does anyone prefer a call trying to get BB to come along and stack off when we hit a set?

I really liked your questions and Richard's answers! Definitely the main RIO once coach I look forward to now.
Interesting what you were saying about preflop play. I was using the Upswing PLO matrix tool and found it crazy how many hands I would get wrong. I since purchased a preflop solve and use that to check my hands but it's still fascinating to see how it approaches some spots.

Great video as always, it's cool to see how quick you are at using the syntax on monker

Hi great video,
I was going to ask you about your choice to 4bet QJT8ds at the 16min mark as this is a spot that I always call. However I just checked it with my preflop solve and with the SB caller it's a 100% 4bet and without it's a call. Thanks for opening my eyes to this spot.

Not sure if you are still reviewing this thread Richard but i love your videos.
Matthias has been doing a deep dive series for NL where he takes a specific preflop scenario. Eg. BTN 3b's CO and CO calls. Then looks at how the 180 different board textures and how they differ for IP and OOP in terms of equity/ev, frequency of different sizes/checks. Ect.

Thanks Richard, I really liked your video. Some advanced techniques like how to write scripts and even a process video for how to attack a certain spot would be really cool too!
Aug. 20, 2019 | 12:59 a.m.
Having stumbled across this myself, looking for videos. I would recommend just getting a copy of icmizer and running lots of spots through it. I've been doing this for the past few days and found it really insightful.

I'm guessing it's to minimise the value of villain's x/shoves when we fold...
July 17, 2019 | 12:54 a.m.
Hey Sam loved this series and rewatching it now.
Could you elaborate as to why you like the 25% PSB sizing on 6d4d5c. Is this your only sizing on this texture?
July 17, 2019 | 12:52 a.m.
Thanks so much for this, very helpful.
June 24, 2019 | 7:08 a.m.
Really cool, thanks for posting. I've been playing PLO as my main game for two years and I didn't know this!
May 22, 2019 | 12:58 a.m.
I'm just making them myself, seems like a worthwhile exercise anyway

I really like the pace of live play as you can discuss situations in depth. I would love to see more live cash game play at mid stakes 5/10 to 25/50 with a mix of amateurs pro's and stack sizes. Seeing an excellent player's thought process as they take in 3-4 bits of information in an unusual spot, is really educational compared to making sure our 1/3psb range is optimised in a btn vs co spot at 100bbs

Thanks for the video Kevin, Definitely love your solver approach. I would be interested to see how you make your heuristics or a summary of your heuristics later in the series.
March 11, 2019 | 11:54 p.m.
I liked the video as someone who has only come to PLO in the past 18 months i like hearing about how you would approach situations differently today vs two years ago.
I prefer the one table approach and I like seeing you and other elites play these stakes.

I liked the format, i too failed the AJ42ss/ t986s question. I think I just auto raise any nut suit otb so thanks for pointing that out.
Jan. 26, 2019 | 2:14 a.m.
Loved this video, looking forward to the series continuing.

I understand his assumption is that the majority of the popn are under bluffing this spot, as you can see with the CO response (vs 6.7%) there isn't any bluffing with A5s basically and your 'bluffs' come from the AKo part of your range.
In summary, don't bluff random regs in this spot as you need to do it for stacks, without a read.
Jan. 16, 2019 | 12:07 a.m.
i dont mind a smaller size on the turn to make straights indifferent, if you bet $60 and this is what I presume to be a weak live game, you are going to get value from all tx, AK and maybe some k9. There aren't many rivers you dislike other than a K or a J, so protection isn't relevant.
Preflop it's a fold. In a limped pot IP, i don't mind overlimping. Or if you are btn straddle and there's been a raise, you are slightly discounted so it's probably fine, especially when all these pots are MW

I too support this recommendation, I would consider it worth my elite subscription alone for the month for a single video, giving me the fundamentals.
Jan. 14, 2019 | 10:19 p.m.
Thanks for this video, I like your communication style and looking forward to finishing the series. Would be keen to see some more midstage play from you as well.
Dec. 4, 2018 | 11:19 p.m.
To those who advocate a check on this river, can you provide examples of hands that you would believe would make appropriate bluffs as played?
I tend to agree with the line about betting turn to maximise fold equity, interesting to see what your two sizing strategy on this turn would look like Richard.
I am correct to assume that hero can check behind some turns with KQ92, KQT2, QT92? And that our value range is only 2x+ that reached this river?

Yours and Cory's content are easily my favourite on site, I love your comments about using precise language.
Happy for the monker work to be separate, I am finding monker a little troublesome to deal with. So I would really appreciate an intro into how to use it, if there is time.
Oct. 28, 2018 | 10:38 p.m.
I've really loved all of your content. As someone who is new to solver work myself I'm really loving the mix between live play and solutions. I think you articulate yourself really well.
An intro to how to use solvers would be lovely.

I definitely have nejoyed this seires. Probably don't need any more with this exact lineup but very keen for more of the live plo games. As a live player myself I found it very helpful to hear how you should adjust to the different structures such as additional blinds. I still love the online suff too
April 24, 2018 | 12:30 a.m.
I really liked this video format. I paused the video frequently to take notes so I don't mind the speed at which you covered topics. I would love to see similiar style video's for example about bb defending oop and as the 3better oop.
Good video format, I thought your analysis was really solid and helpful to where I am at with my poker journey. Thank you
