Hey I generally don't take many notes to be honest, that being said sometimes I will just take it normally and just try to be quick. I take short notes like "shoves wide bvb" "3b shoved 87o bb vs btn" etc to save time and also as they are easier to read in the future to help (especially when playing lots of tables).
I would never sit out of any table to take a note.
I never did this because I didn't bother figuring out how, but using HEM to mark hands to take notes later is probably a good idea
Great thanks, I;m using PT3 now and it has the mark hands feature and started using that.
Figured I can also go into the stars client during reviews in replayer - options: player notes if I want to.
I have sort of skimmed through a lot of this series and real life 180 grinder, and got the gist of sticking to thinking of chipEV away from bubble -
About calling any two card shoves:
I picked up the comment about K2o having >50% equity vs ATC - does this mean I can just construct a calling range of all hands >50% equity vs. ACT and start using it, if I understand correctly?
So I'm playing and I've seen a reg shoving light appropriate for 180turbos - next time he shoves in a shove ATC spot, I can call with Q6o, J6s, 98s etc? Assuming no levelling going on?
And is there a part of the series anywhere where you go into reshoving specifically?
Don't think so specifically as in JUST re-shoving an episode but it's definitely mentioned for sure. Probably more towards the end, and also in the other series I did called real life 180 man grinder.
Well yes if you have a spot that has no ICM, like not the final table or bubble, calculate your pot odds and see howm uch equity you need. If you have enough, call, if not fold.. So (how much it costs to call/how much the total pot will be if you call).
Also that's BvB, so make sure you don't call with 50% equity from the CO vs UTG because 3 ppl behind you can overcall making your call less profitable.
hey claydol im newish to torneys play cash primarily thought this was a really good concept from your video when i was making notes so thought i would post it here....
Blind versus blind shoving range factors to consider
1. Hand strength e.g. 65o does a lot better than 32o so may still be a shove against a loosish calling range in BB
2. Stack sizes. deeper we should play tighter, shorter we should play looser to capitalise on our fold equity
3. Opponent type... e.g. versus regular shove tighter because they should call us wider. Versus tight fish shove ATC because they fold so often. Versus loose fish shove tighter cause they call us widely
Example putting these ideas together
We shove for 10bbs in SB with K5o villain calls in BB with 12%of hands against his range we have 30% equity. On average we will be losing 4bbs from this situation (7bbs when we lose 3 bbs when we win 7-3=4) when called however when he folds we win 1.5bbs.. therefor 1.5times 88% -3times12% equals positive0.84bbs per time we shove here. To further this point if we are deeper then we should be less inclined to shove as wide because we clearly loose more the times we have a weak hand and our called. If our opponent calls wider then we win less on our steal and need to compensate by stealing with a tighter range. Need to balance these 3 main factors to ensure we construct the most profitable shoving range.
For practice learn how to adjust these ranges accordingly using poker stove and the simple equation provided
Should be in the series but depends how much your roi is, if you need to support your family/pay bills etc or if you can redeposit and so on. Also if you are willing to move down in stakes in a downswing. For example I'd play 3rs and 8s with 1.5k and move down if I dropped to about 1k, but a professional paying bills might like to have 3K to play 3rs and 8s
