Watch as Josh (sthief09) single tables $1/$2NL as he continues his series on how to make the transition from Limit to NL. He covers how to attack dead money, get involved correctly preflop, make the correct bet and raise sizes and many other topics a Limit player needs to win at NL. As a former limit specialist who made the transition and now plays NL exclusively, Josh is very familiar with the skills to begin crushing the NL games.

I've been a member o' DC for a week. I gave the video a 5 mostly because you addressed ways to take down dead money.
I'd like to add the check raise bluff after I call a raise oop preflop, something I rarely do to begin wih. I believe you say that you like to do this with backdoor draws, gutshots and overs. Do you generally not make this move if an A or K hits the flop? Are you just about always doing this against opponents with a high CB %, like 80-90 %? Also, what happens if you get called and don't improve on the turn, I assume you will normally just give up on the bluff in that case.
I'm very enthused about DC and have already seen a change in my game. I'm more aggressive preflop, isolating and 3-betting more. I look forward to learning all sorts of situational moves like this check raise, which I've pretty much never used before.
yeah I agree, though this vid is very old and the games might have played differently. I also used to 3-bet like 10% back then so I'm sure I got a lot of action. I think something like 1/3 pot could work here, calling off the rest. Assuming there's about 1 PSB left, I think we have too much equity to fold, and checking lets him check his worse hands with outs.
Hi muddy, take a look at this guide http://www.deucescracked.com/forums/7-Research-and-Development-/topics/28164-DC-Video-Guide-Updated-Se .
For the hud you'd usually have vpip/pfr/afq on the top line & then a mix of cbet, f2cb, 3bet, f23b etc all underneath somewhere.
In the future you'd probably want to start your own thread asking for advice rather than posting in a vid's comments, especially a vid that's a few years old as most people will be watching the more recent stuff
Actually here's a more recent guide http://www.deucescracked.com/forums/7-All-About-DeucesCracked/348821-DeucesCracked-Video-Guide
