Honestly, I don't think this thread should be completely ignored. I am a winning player at PLO 50z and winning there for a lot of bbs/100 (80k sample). Ever since the "Cash out" feature was introduced, some shady things are happening in my opinion. Obviously people will just laugh when you talk about it, but there has been so many shady things in Poker so I don't see why something could go on on a site that is not the same one we know from 5+ years ago. Don't tell me "why would they do something like that, absolutely no reason", because with the cash out feature there is obviously a lot of reasons to let that happen.
Seriously, I had saved a lot of different HHs to a special categorie in HM3 where I felt very very suspicious. Like, getting squeezed out from a pot preflop from a very tight player and then he shows up with 2368r while I would have flopped a set. Now I can't even find the hands. Wouldn't that be genius to just delete all these HHs if something were going on? It is very scary tbh and I don't know how to investigate it further.
And like OP says, the 10% and below just happends a little bit too often and always vs "cash out" players and not vs regs.

@28.18 Gotta love this. "I can't fold... just yet. The question is, do I wanna jam" :D kinda reminds me of that serie "The Micros" where he is considering folding on the river but instead shoves, haha!
Hopefully we will get some new essential videos from you soon Phil!

Also, is Ah4hAs2d considered to be medium strong/weak Aces? We probably have to check fold quite some flops but when we do flop our wheel draw, we should be able to pot GII on most flops 100bb deep and do fine?

Thanks Devwil, very informative answer!
Yeah I completely agree that there is no need to be as aggressive as I have been because I don't get any folds preflop or isolate the opener anyways in a lot of cases. Also, RFI ranges seems way too wide in Matrix in some spots with AKxx AQxx from early positions in my opinion. At least on lowstakes.
Yep, I will have to tighten up with my overpairs from now on. I have been playing Zoom where ranges are even tighter, so probably even a bigger case to not be too sqz happy? For example, on a reg table I could easily see a fish just call when he gets 3-bet with bad AAxx 100bbs+ deep.
I will keep watching videos and hope to pick up more of these spots. I really love how Phil goes deep into a lot of spots, but sometimes I wish I could just have a liveplay footage of 10 hours of non stop playing to really get a feel for preflop. Will have to upgrade to Elite or get a coach I guess to improve faster!

Do we need to be a lot tighter with a squeeze compared to a 3b? I think I have been losing so much money by both 3-betting but probably the most by squeezing way too many hands (often single suited overpairs, AQQx, AKKx, and most single suited AA except the worse ones like AA82ss. I happily 3bet & sqz AA42ss, is that a mistake?) and end up in a multiway pot and go broke with my overpair. For example, should I 3b AA75ss SB vs CO but just call the same hand if MP opens and CO calls? Ace high suit that is.
What would you suggest me to do to improve this BIG leak that I have? I am watching videos from Phil but the spots has not really been there that often... Just keep watching or? I have been using PLO Matrix, but yeah, it has not really worked out...
Would really appreciate advice!! :)

sorry, what i meant was that he has KK/JJ on the turn a lot and that is why im considering to just check call turn cause usually when i bet i just get a pot size raise in my face. agree he almost never has JJ/KK on the river.
thanks for answering

yea, maybe people are shoving much wider with 15-20 bbs these days. before i felt like it was mostly small pairs and broadways. havent played much lately so my game is a bit off. :-) i guess that shoving a very wide range vs me would work pretty good, cause i would call pretty tight here. something like 55+, A7, A6s, KJo, KTs. do you think that is too tight? guess it's very player dependent. but if i ever see you at the tables i will make sure not to shove wide into your bb, haha ;).

i think the T9s is a bad call. you had a read that he would not shove like a 8% top range, but really who is (regs) doing that at this stack depth? anyways, i feel like his range is heavily ranged towards small pairs, broadways, Ax and some Kx and some good suited connectors. i don't play mtts atm but i just feel like you are behind here so often and rarely dominating his hands. also, you seems like a good player so seems unnecessarily to call here. i mean, is people really shoving 18bbs here with 74s for example? seems bad to me...

i enjoyed the video but me personally would like to hear you commenting your decisions rather than other things. ofcourse you can do both but in my opinion it's very interesting to hear your thoughts on different hands. for example: at 1:50 you were raise calling A2o from the SB. Is that standard? To me it seems like a spot were you could just shove or actually raise fold against therookieqq types :)?
13:00, were you raisecalling with JTs?
34:30 (A5s), what's ur range to get it in here vs this player? i probably never would raise call a low ace here but that could be a leak in my game? if i were to r/c i would make it a bit bigger rather than an induce bet.
34:30 (33s), again, a play i probably never would do. i would go with 66+, maybe 55, and again, that could be a leak in my game. but don't you feel that there are other better spots where you can gain chips or is this a really good spot?
looking forward to part2!

At 43:20, what would your get it in-range be against the opener? And how would you play small pairs there? Would you ever 3bet them, and then if he 4bets you and you suspect that he is light, then ship it or is that terrible? Or do you have odds to just setmine? I don't really know when you got odds to setmine, is there an easy way to find out?
Also, if you're going to make more videos, maybe you could show us some early stages as well. Keep them coming!
