Hello Tariq nice video, about the spot with TTs (18min) what hands did you put in his shoving range in order to make this call because give his stats who looks tight I expect him to shove JJ+ and AKx which we have 33% equity against. Is it a mistake to fold TTs preflop vs this player? I would probably fold even the low sample we have

Comment | stigcall commented on Studying Efficiently

Blockquote I tend to do database solves, create aggregated reports, and see if I can figure out things from there. Then when I have certain concepts written down I verify these with running solutions that test the concepts. Afterwards I tend to know it because I spend the time working on it.
To make sure I play against the database solve and see how accurate I am.
Is this efficient though?

I think that's the best way to approach the new knowledge that you receive especially when you play against the database because makes you less uncomfortable when facing an awkward spot in your session. You also need to understand when to differentiate from the GTO approach and adjust your strategy according to your player pool.
For me, because I don't have any solver yet I mostly watch live plays, hand reviews, and gto+ (and all Peter Clark videos obviously) because you can put yourself in their own shoes and see if you can do the same things as a winning player do.

RaoulFlush Thank you very much for your comment. I will try to have this analytical approach from now on and to answer your questions:

About my blockers, I block KQ and AQ and some Backdoor hands which would maybe continue like KJdd KTdd AJdd and ATdd

Turn improves some FDs like T8, JT+ T9, gives set to TTs, and 2pair to QT.
The only worst hands that I can see fold to my second barrel are 77-99 and jjs and if he has some combos of 76s and A5s (which I didn't put in his range) that gives us 30 combos. Because the SPR is 1.3 approximately we have shove or x/f, with our equity being 29% ( I add 76 and A5) is unprofitable to bluff in this spot.

UTG: $12.59 (126 bb)
MP: $6.81 (68 bb)
CO: $10.00 (100 bb)
BU: $9.02 (90 bb)
SB (Hero): $10.07 (101 bb)
BB: $22.54 (225 bb)

Pre-Flop: ($0.21) Hero is SB with K♦ A♦
2 players fold, CO calls $0.10, BTN raises to $0.50, Hero 3-bets to $1.40, 2 players fold, BTN calls $0.90

Flop: ($3.06) 5♦ Q♥ 6♥ (2 players)
Hero bets $0.93, BTN calls $0.93

Turn: ($4.92) T♠ (2 players)
Hero checks, BTN bets $1.90, SB (Hero) folds

Q: How often should I bluff with this combo

A: These situations with busted ak OOp always confusing me because I don't how often should I bluff with my GS. I made a range and I hope to be as accurate as possible. With these assumptions, I think the best play is x/fold

Henry lister has made a video about poker scientist, you can check it and see if suits to you.
I Don't have any solver but to be honest if I wanted to buy one I would probably buy the gto+. I have seen videos in Rio from coaches that use it and looks more "playful" than pio which sometimes is a little bit boring and chaotic.

Comment | stigcall commented on 4bet pot ep vs co

Thank you all for your answers
zinom1 The 1/3 bet OTT really troubles me to be honest. I can understand why you want me to bet1/3, for sure in this static board which hands will call the 1/2 OTF (TTs, JJs QQs 88s)
but I have an assumption based on the player pool. At NL10 is rare to see a call to 4bet and when you see it is mostly from lags, in this specific spot I play against a reg (NL10 reg) I assume that the people who call 4bets in this stakes are not willing to fold on the first barrel most of the time so they keep their range "wide" with backdoor fds and overcards (AK AQ KQ) for that reason I don't know how effective will be a 1/3 bet OTT but sounds completely reasonable from a gto perspective.

Mudkip Thanks for the recommended ranges I have also these hands in my mind when I'm thinking a 4bet bluff the thing is the frequencies so I think I have to start using my rng for 4bet bluffing more often than I did with 15-20% frequency

What should be a good 4bet range?
I use some times hands like ats kqx a2-3-4s in my 4bet range vs people who over3betting but I don't have exactly ranges of which hands should I 4bet with

Do you think the bluff was good?
I have all the qq kk and aa in my range and I want to put pressure also I dont like the 1/3 in this board texture OOP and with my hand equity I decide to fast play with 1/2 and shove on a safe Turn
I expect him to call hands like kqs jjs QQs Akx Aqs (i cant see other hands in his 4bet calling range help me with that plz)

Great video Peter as always, the combination with pio in some spots is doing it even more helpful. Sb vs bb spots are very crucial for a remarkable winrate, I would like to see a video from you explain these hard no equity spots like j4s at 14:00.

lIlCitanul thank you very much

about the 33:00 spot on the right table, if assume a calling range like this!

we need slightly more than 50% to make this shove profitable and we have 43% do you think was better to x back river given the range I gave him? The combos that we take value from are KTs,KTo,JT=10 combos

Dec. 4, 2020 | 7:56 a.m.

Got to look at how much you risk to win what. You are risking 12.54 to win 11.47+12.54. So 12.54/24.01 is 52.23%. Your opponent needs to fold 52.23% off the time. If 39 is the amount of combos he calls that would have to be 47.77% off his range. So 39/47.77*52.23 are the combo's he would need to fold. Which is 42.64 combo's.

lIlCitanul I would appreciate if you explain where did you find the 47.77% of 39 and the maths behind the assumption because sincerely I read your post for half an hour now and I can't understand it

NIce video Peter, I see that your student opens from all position 2.5x and I want to ask if is correct because of the ante that takes place at stakes NL10-NL25. You don't think we give a good price to call us?

Nov. 13, 2020 | 6:44 a.m.

In this spot, if we assume a calling range like this one is it ok to cbet even 1/3 of the pot?

Comment | stigcall commented on 3bet pot videos?

Thanks for your answer
Yes of course and I know learning paths but the thing is that the most videos there are for elite membership for that reason I made a post and to if someone has something to recommend which is not including in the 3bet chapter of learning paths

Post | stigcall posted in NLHE: 3bet pot videos?

Hello, I'm searching for some videos in essential membership which talk about 3bet situations especially OOP because I find myself in very tough situations with small SPR and I don't know when is good to bluff with my overcards OTT, when to x or bet my 2nd pair, etc. I will appreciate if you have any video to recommend me

Sept. 22, 2020 | 7:34 a.m.

at 29:15 in this spot, our line was 3betPF b/b and jam OTR, Do you think is better to check OTR rather than jamming blindly to induce some miss FDs to bluff because the only hands that I can see call our jam are 99s, TTs, JJs, and A8s(sometimes)?
