Hello guys. My partner Saulo already said everything, but for the ones that dont know me, i'm very active in the brazilian community, but not that much in the international one for poker. Never posted much here or on 2+2, but I have a longtime partnership with Saulo and we developed this team together.
In case you want to know me better, i use a lot my IG for that, where i like to share results and thoughts about poker industry, and i did some interviews/podcasts in my career. I did one in english and some in portuguese. But i know you want results and mainly on PokerStars, so, as Saulo said we're transitioning from 500z to 1k and 2k regtables:
Last Results Stars Stakes
Last Results Stars Graphs
And about other medias:
My interview with Nick Howard (In English @ Jun/18)
SuperPoker Podcast Part 1 (Portuguese, Fev/19)
SuperPoker Podcast Part 2 (Portuguese, Fev/19)
BG Cast (Portuguese, Ago/19)
In adition just want to say that this is actually a very good opportunity and we're looking forward to work with very interested people. So, if you want to work a lot and make your poker career work, we will be glad to work with you. We have A LOT of success cases, some awesome histories that we will start to spread with more emphasis from now on, and this is just the begginning of the team, so, if you want to be part of something that will grow a lot, the time is now!

where this license comes from? which guarantees do you have that this license means something?
March 20, 2020 | 4:18 a.m.
it depends on the site. some sites charge rake from preflop either

Thats just pretty obvious. Not follow the “gto strat” in some street to make your opponent make bigger mistakes in future ones. Just the pseudo-mimic-gto guys dont understand that

jm88 i agree with what george plasticelephant said down here \/ about game selection, and obviously i totally disagree with the nit stuff, but not gonna repeat myself. I think game selection is very important although i dont do it LOL and just love to play zoom if i have the opportunity. Overall i would advise what i advise everyone: test stuffs by yourself, give yourself the opportunity to know how you gonna feel in each spot and be patient. poker is not going anywhere so just try the possibilities and give some time to understand the process. thats what i did and what i still do when i face more than one path! all of them have pros and cons imo. zoom is way more comfortable to play but is def not the same EV, so bigger downswings etc.. reg tables are slower, higher EV, lower DS but of course you play less and gotta put more tables etc.. so in general imo is very very personal! :) GL!!

jm88 ure being totally biased toward nits. i played 27/21+ since NL10 and beated all stakes thru 500. i have 20+ students beating microstakes playing 27/21+, this rake stuff is just an excuse for you to be more nitty and something that u cant prove because is not real. 20/17/6 is not nit, is super nit. and this is not even close to "an optimal vpip/pfr" btw.
idk where the nit fest comes, and i really dont care, im just ashamed for the ones who spread this stuffs for naive begginers. i usually don post on forums but i felt like u really wanted to see other point of view so i decided to post. GL!

how many guys said the same thing in 2009?
May 6, 2019 | 6:14 p.m.
you're a total joke
Saulo have all of his life in poker basically here on RIO since NL5. Never hide any downswing or anything.
now that all of your shitty arguments makes even less sense (if that is possible cuz you never made any fucking sense) you came with the most looser argument of all :~FAKE GRAPH~
and besides of that you need a fake to trash talk other players
thats how you perceived for everyone. do a favor to yourself and get the fuck out of here you stupid coward hater

Well, first of all you have to setup some parameters to say what a “missed boat” should mean. Means that you can’t be a multi millionaire anymore? That you can’t afford a good living in a 1st world country? That you can’t won even one penny at the long run? Well, of course you can’t aim to won billions with poker, or win cristiano ronaldo’s salary, but you still can aim a pretty gold living.
1- poker online will never be dead unless some facts could occur simultaneously:
a) technology have gone so far ONLY IN ONE WAY than “super bots” are not stopabble anymore. (here i mean that “super bots” tech have gone that far and the ways to stop them for some reason, don’t).
b) people do not like to play recreationally anymore
c) rake is even higher
d) laws issues makes more than a half of countries closed markets.
Some importants things i think i should mention:
1- People even at online highstakes are playing not even close to GTO, that “everyone is unexploitable” paranoia is insanse, humans will never be able to do it. And here again we are only considering NLHE and forgetting about other ways of poker like PLO who is a lot more complex to “solve” than NLHE. And of course all of that even counting with the fact that nlhe is somehow possible for a human to masterize it at all, which it isn’t.
2- We can’t forget that online poker is a billionaire industry. There are serious companies putting all their chips on it, companies growing up now and planning to work for several years. Its not like that for a billionaire industry to disappear.
3- Again. It really deppends of parameters of what is easy and what is good money/good lifestyle for you. And more important: what tools do you have to do it. Some people may think its too hard cuz they dont have a safe finnancial spot and are not able to make some the recquired sacrificies to achieve a poker life without it. There are soooo many variables in that! Mental is everything. If you are not happy, feeling lost, anxious about a life that you will soffer with a non-certain source of income than of course is too painful and too stressfull and too hard. If you want that poker would be like a regular 9-5 job you’re losing your time, it will never be. Its different.

I agree with Dan A , without zoom 4 tabling would be too low even for recs. About that, with the bot thing, do you think zoom/non-zoom have some impact in that? I know you already said that will not have zoom at the beggining, but i really think that zoom prevents more teamplay and bots than regtables.. do you have another point that im missing here?
Btw, another good policy by RIO, i really think it will be a success, anyone who is concerned about poker ecossystem will agree with you. I think the "pro-community" should stop being so sellfish in the short-term (cuz obviously your decisions are better for poker players in general at the long term, they being regs or recs). The most importante thing in the world is not you having the volume you want with all the comfort you want at only one site.

It's a good mindset to have in some manner, to not be surprised if a breakeven stretch or a downswing comes, of course, but just be sure that you're not like "anxiously expecting" for it to come like if you "don't desurve" those 10bb and thought times are inevitable, you know? I think those are two different ways to deal with it. I mean, imho you should enjoy a lot this moment, be proud as fuck of your graph (cuz its really awesome), be ready IF tought times come, but dont deal with it like if you're Always waiting for it to come, cuz you dont even know if it will come. It really feels to me that you're Always in the defense like "i dont know how reliable 45k hand sample per position is". IMO? is a lot. almost 300k hands at 10bb is A LOT. And about pools diferences, of course 200nl is tougher but imo is not that much, of course there's better regs and the reg/fish ratio is worst in general (but like you said, sometimes it dont), but the rake is lower and you as a nick fanboy too for sure realized that the majority of the pool have the same leaks, so imo you shouldnt be that surprise that you have the same WR.
There's a famous sentence that we use in brazil but im pretty sure its worldwide that says "Tell a lie often enough and it will become the truth". Who said those games are not beatable at such winrate? who said to you that 200z should be way tougher than 100z for you to be surprised with your wr at it? who said 500z is way tougher than 200z? who said nosebleed players are GTO robots not humans totally unexploitable? the same guys who never had a "run" like yours in not even 20k hands, maybe? :)

the chance that you're just running hot and ure not a huge winner is just soooooo little that i cant believe you actually believe in it. that's pretty humble in some manner but the way im seeing you talk i can actually think it's probably your only big leak.
"Many times this year i have been telling to myself that you are just running hot, and this cant be sustainable. And i still think that way" lol bro, really? you're a crusher, believe in it, stop self sabotaging, IMHO you should not even think about seat more at 100NL, and this is not gonna bring any benefits for me cuz i def know who you are, i play against you at 200z and if it gonna bring some more confidence to you so yeap, you're for sure one of the best regs at 200z (there are not many goods imho with aldo respect with the others), so stop the bullshit bro xD
GL and congratz
