I joined elite recently and need to improve my stats skills like odds and ingame calculation. I could not find any theme related to this specificly so wondering if you guys could give me some videos to watch that I my have missed?
Like when someone rejam 25 bb what to call and which odds... Even in pre flop 3bet ranges for example on which hand you will best touch a flop.
Thank you and gl

Hey man great second video, but would be nice to see the full session to have your entire thinking process, feel a bit frustrated not to see the end of it.
July 28, 2020 | 1:56 p.m.
Hey Mathias great content, I am just joining elite again and it is exactly the type of videos I am looking for. Regarding what you mentionned, I think 6 tables is better to explain more in details your actions as we do have less time to see things with 8 (even if I am used to 8 myself). Would love to see more content like this we learn a lot from it. What is btw your strategy in sundays? 8 tabling? Play 12 14 tables and hope to hit something? I feel overdays it can be costly and i am not too sure about the best strategy to employ.
Few questions : 32:19 you fold 77, for me it is a jam but do you do it because it is strong range against 2 oponents and you will always be called espeially with bounty involved? As i felt we will like to gamble with a paire in this spot as only one may just iso and rejam. What is your general thinking process here?
Second one the AQ at the last hand, do you mind going a bit deeper in your thinking process, calculation to see the equity we have against a hand like this. as I struggle yet to calculate it myself in and outgame.
Thank you and gl.

Great content mate :)
Hey you said that the equity can be reduce by 3 Betting a bigger sizing,
as you well explained you will need to defend a lot and this will be profitable for your opponent... I discovered something tonight haha. What will be your standard 3bet in tournament to be the most profitable regarding every standard opponent? is it like if CO open 3x, 3betting 12 13 BB BTN?
Also if we are like 30 40 BB deep, I know we should open stronger to conserrve our stack especially in the end of the tournament, how then will we construct our defending 3bet / jamming range here? Here would be my CO BTN 25 - 40 BB deep opening range.
was also about asking how constructing a profitable 3bet wayif a potential aggressive reshove will be behind us like 15 20 BB. Will be I imagine a strong range like 8, 9%
Jan. 17, 2019 | 9:10 p.m.
love your videos man :) ICM Related you say I will just keep folding and at 3 Min you Jam KJs BTN with one with 3 BB and one with 8 BB UTG? Is it not better to protect the ICM by raise folding here especially as the ICM start to be important?
Also 20 Min TT you 3 Bet all in with a guy half of the stack so you can be out, I know TT is the top of our range regarding a fish but ICM related it's not a suicide related if we busto 3rd position against AK? We were lucky this time but every others 50% of the time and when he have JJ+ we are fucked....
Jan. 12, 2019 | 8:33 p.m.
Amazing content dude, thought for once I would not find something to ask but luckily I play more final tables haha :)
Hey when SB push with 20 BB with two short stack 10 BB, what would be the calling range here, AA+ AK+?
Also have a question when we are all 20 to 30 beep, the strategy is to be very tight as well and JAM tighter or doing it aggressively?
Jan. 12, 2019 | 9:43 a.m.
Hey dude great content here, at 6 min you decide to 3bet AA, flop is 683 which should not too much hit villain range. Is it not better in this scenario to check and hope he will find a Q or a K in the turn to take everything if he had QK ? Bet he will never call a cbet or may be a little one lile 2 3 bb ?
15 min you talk about calling range against BTN shove 13 BB which will destroy our stack if we loose, is K5s is tight enough to call here? Thought callinh A8xo 66+ KJ+? What will be your exact calling range pbounty related? Kind of same question for 17 Min
Jan. 5, 2019 | 5:39 p.m.
Dude great content again, sorry for all of the questions haha :)
With KO what would be your opening range with a big stack and 20 BB stack like it is here and peoples who can potentially jam a lot? I do not like too much especially raise folding which will give us a bad image at the table... Something like 22+ 78s+ Axs A80?
Also you spoke about calling ATs with BB, do you mind showing the mats of this calcul? I had a look of the videos and comment you recommend me to calculate the precise range of calling at 11:51, that would be great :) Sorry I am a bad student haha but this one is still chinese for the moment !
You said calling 50% with the range (think it's abou 15 min when Jam BTN 11 BB and BB is 10 BB for the bounty. You obviously fold T3 but do you agree with this range?
If they have 20 bb what will be the calling range here with 60 BB
and if we had like 40 BB?
Thx again !
Jan. 4, 2019 | 1:20 p.m.
Great content again :) When you decide to check raise 57, does the check raise with like 30 bb will not affect too much our stack and go to the 25 bb zone which is a bit painfull as we can only continue our aggression with 6, as we do not have any backdoor flushdraw possible? Would this not be better doing it with 50 60 bb and play more straight forward 30 BB deep out of position, even if he does not always hit this board?
When you sb 3bet A8s with like 25 BB, what will be your strategy if the flop is not good for our hand? Bet flop 1 street and fold or just give up?
35' You call 76sb, is it not better to 3bet instead of calling with 35 40 BB?
Jan. 2, 2019 | 4:17 p.m.
not sure mate :) interesting question ! Pedro ? :)
Dec. 28, 2018 | 1:25 p.m.
Dude another great content haha, getting addicted ;)
Few questions again :
You lead preflop Aj and find a 6T4 against 3 opponent 6 max with SB BB, you decide to go for a check raise here (sorry do not have the time) to represent something like over paire, I will get it with one player but against 4 is is not mostly a check fold here? Ok we have the nuts with BTN and TT and the A does not help turn but thought we will be called a lot in this spot no? How will you balance your strategy here?
24 Min : Would you consider 3 betting flop with T9s against 20 25bb stack size in the semi final to put pressure against your opponent? Good read as he have Ak haha but from my small experience, they can have a weaker range trying to steal the BB, what do you think about it?
31 Min you have AK with 3 hearts on the flop against 3 players and A23. You decide to check call here, is it not better to bet in protection / value against a 20% flush draw something like half pot or 45%? Check fold obviously when the 4 hearth is coming
37 Min : You limp 7K Bvb, what is the optimum strategy with this flop, best to check raise 476 here? to value and protect against weak hands and fd? Betting the turn and fold the river?
Obviously it is easier when it's like a JKA board which will hit more our range but this spots I find them tricky to play here
44 Min : if BB was checking the turn after his check raise with KT4 flop what would be your strategy here to steal the pot?
Last one for you haha, you are including a lot of check back flop with like middle paire, top paire. How do you include and mix this in your balanced strategy? (I bet a full video can be done for this haha)
Thanks and good job again ! Really also like the reactivity you have in the platform which is not the case of every coach so this motivate me even more ;)
Dec. 28, 2018 | 12:29 p.m.
Thanks for this, I agree with the concept and thought he would call AJ TT+ in this spot haha. Even 88 would not probably take this spot of call I think with the stack size..
Did a simulation with HRC what range would you profitably reshove here? Everything up to 0.03 with a large opponent? I am even surprise you can push Qx here as well
Dec. 28, 2018 | 11:12 a.m.
will depend of a lot of facts, how far are you in the tournament,
how loose is your opponent opening etc.
I would not reshove against UTG open with 2 for example 20 BB but I would against CO especially if he is opening very loose.
I would consider also which tournament is it, like if you are deep running and not use to this stakes, I may won't play the same strategy than if it is my normal stakes tournaments, but this depends on me really :)
Dec. 27, 2018 | 12:39 p.m.
Hey Mate thanks a lot for this great content again, like the pio solver combination here with the review :) Few questions if you do not mind regarding this one (A bit lately regarding your video, just back to this content).
- When opponent lead 6T4 at the beginning of the videos, sometimes they lead with the nuts as well, how do you react against this? Because they will lead expensive the turn so we will probably have to fold correct if it's like a 3/4 pot?
-At 4 Min you decide to 4Bet AJ and go for it with the bounty, how would you calculate if you have to call or fold even if you are behind the opponent JAM range? Do you have any kind of reshove rull as well for like 20 25 BB stack and bounty related as well for reshoving range?
At some point you are against two others players in SB with AJo, and it's open CO, call HJ.
Why do you decide to call and not raising out of position to protect your range against opponent range? Feel like AT AJ are hands very difficult to play out of position and can be hard to situate yourself sometimes. Or is it just that the pot is small to compare to your stack and you considering having some edge against your opponents?
Last one :) Looks like your tables are automatically posted on the screen when you open a new tournament, does not matter which website, do you use a software for this? You also had one tool to have the BB written in red in big on each table in one of your videos (same question)
Thanks a lot for your content and keep going like this buddy ! And Happy New year in advance :)

Hi guys and Merry Christmas all.
I was just in the Final Table of the 15000 Guarantis 888 for 16.5 and cheap leader
Stack size cheap leader with 16 BB and 5 left. (I have a 4K roll before this tournament
so Ideally winning is the target and I think it's best to get the maximum of risks in this case
The prizepool is like this
5- 891 $
Stack Size : (very Deep haha)
HJ 6 BB
BTN 12 BB
SB 6 BB
BB (Me 16 BB)
BTN open very light BTN and I find KJ BB, in my perspective I would put the max of pressure against a fish very loose aggro from what I have seen. (My tracker was not working for some reasons on this player)... Two questions regarding this spot, first one is it best to just call and play post flop, or is it better to push to put the max ICM pressure against villain who will struggle to pay a lot of his range here, I would say AJ 88+?
The second one is how to play as a cheap leader and as a not cheap leader like mid size when everyone is between 12 to 20 BB in a final table, because ICM here is the key.
For the story BTN called with A8o which is for me way too loose as I will probably push 22+ AJo+ in this spot and the hand after he open, find 8 BB 33 and push, busto against AQ last in chips...
Also have a a good run questions guys :) I jumped from 1k to 5k in a week time with 4 final tables with a 2K winamax cocktail win in 3 sessions (just unreal for me and very good before the Winters series and the Winamax series). I feel that I play better next to the final table like 30 left and take the risk to search the win, but I know that I probably won't have this every week. How do you manage against good run? Do you surf to the confidence and just play / Keep working or you slow down and do others stuff... I dunno wanna be over confident in this situation and come back stupidly to the 10$ only.
Thanks a lot and have a nice christmas and NY guys
Dec. 26, 2018 | 11:19 a.m.
hey mate thanks for your nice content again :)
11:50 against a shot in SB potentially shoving. What would be your open / call range here, if you are 25BB and if you are like 35 40 BB . I imagine it will not be the same that the one you gave me for bvb play as ICM is involved much more and we do have to conserve our stack much more.
Will you have any kind of open fold range?
I really struggle to know sometimes when I am deep in top twenty to know what to open / call / fold which is the base to win tournaments ! Great content and looking forward to the strategy in the final table
Dec. 20, 2018 | 7:40 p.m.
Thx dude :)
Dec. 20, 2018 | 6:40 p.m.
Cool is the difference of green is like 100% 75% etc?
Like +5.65 and 0.35 are not clear to me haha
Does the range work for big blind jam too or worst to defend with decend hands instead?
Dec. 18, 2018 | 7:16 p.m.
Hey another one for you if you don't mind. At 18:00 you defend bottom right Ax against a fish Vs 3 bb open. How will you define your defending range against a 3x and against a 2x here?
Even if he seems a fish I feel hard to play this type of hands out of position no? The bord won't much touch our range so we will struggle most of the time to get a lot of money back no?
Dec. 18, 2018 | 1:33 p.m.
Hey mate regarding those videos, would you have any shoving range against recreational players 10 15 bb not to be exploitable against and being profitable in the long term against late position large and tight openner? Like 22+ Ax Kjo+?
Dec. 18, 2018 | 1:19 p.m.
Cheers dude :)
Dec. 17, 2018 | 9:38 p.m.
I usually do not have too many problems to build a big stack in a tournament, but when we do arrive at the end like in the latest 200 100, not sure if it's a combination of spew, bad analysis, or just some flips that you have to win, but I really want to progress in the 20 25 BB game deep.
Do you have any videos like theory and live play to recommend to be able to perfom in this micro limit stage 2$ 22$ average?
Did few finale tables recently but really need to up my level to the next stage (Do not really consider the hyper turbo as a talented play haha)
Any help and advise will be defo appreciate guys ;)
Thanks a lot and gll
Dec. 15, 2018 | 3:33 p.m.
What a perfect answer mate, thanks for the fast reply ::)
The second one is how basically to decide or not to go broke QK when you oen against a push let's say 20 BB
You decide to do it when it's an hyper turbo when everyone have more or less the same stack size and you need to take some risk to win this kind of tournament.
However when you have like a 25BB stack in a deeper tournament, or like your stack when you are one of the cheap leader, how will you define this kind of calling range against viliain range, as from my view he probably can do this with 88 + AT+
I bet it is even more different when he is tighter
Thanks a lot for this again !
Dec. 12, 2018 | 8:17 a.m.
hey buddy great content, thanks for explaining the cheap leader strategy at this part of the tournament, when you are into the middle stack size position like 12.19, how do you react when you just are before ITM and after? I feel this position very hard to play, is it only Push or Fold related as even if we are not last, the different position won't be very different until top 5 so we will need to have some shoving spots at some point. If you could detail this that would be great ! Waiting for the deep run haha
