Sorry OMGClayDol but you still haven't answered my question probably because i didn't word it properly. When using http://www.holdemresources.net/hr/sngs/icmcalculator.html outside of the money, in the "Structure" box what do you put in for 180's? Do you put it in as '1' ie 100%? What about FT, when there are 4 left do you just type in .30 or 30%, .20 etc?
Hope i made my question clearer, I don't use SNG Wiz
At around 4:30 you review a hand holding AQo in SB against an UTG shove for ~10BB eff. pre-ante. You say you would usually call and gave regulars 88+, AQ+ on average, with 77+, AJ+ being a possibility. Now, assuming BB folds, we get 1.2:1 and would need 45% equity according to the replayer. Against the first range we only have 36% and against the second range only 43%.
And as we probably would even need a little bit more equity than 45% to call, since the BB (also 10BB eff.) can still overcall with what I assume would be an even stronger range (am I right on the assumption that potential overcallers usually decrease our calling range/increase the equity we need [unless they call very loose obv]?), AQo seems to be far from a call here. Even AQs and 99 with ~46% equity against the looser range seems to be close (I am too tired right know to make an actual EV calculation including an overcall right now). So probably TT+, AK+ with 99 and AQs being close against the looser range and a clear fold against the tighter range.
Could you comment on that?
Pokerstove J9o vs a calling range, then pokerstove K9o Usually because J9o is rarely dominated (AJ) whereas K9 is dominated by KQs AK. Vs. most of the other hands in the calling range the K isn't really important anyway (like say vs AT k9 and j9 are nearly the same) and the closer connetctivity meaning more likely to draw a straight improves equity.
The most common example of this concept is Axo, axo has terrible equity vs a tight range, so often hands like 87s are better to shove. Pokerstove a2o compared to 87s vs. ATs AJo 77+ and see 87s crushes a2o
thanks for the quick and clear answer. Btw, I sent the very same question to 2p2 mttsng section and still no response. I therefore appreciate your apporach
I have already tried the hands against certain ranges, but I was concerned with the theory behind building ranges in general - the effects of suitedness, high card value and connectedness of the cards. I think I got a better grasp of the concept from your videos and comments, although I see there is still a ton to learn.
I would like to ask you another question, if you don't mind - in the videos you often refer to Nash equilibrium/equilibrium pushing charts. However in the latter episodes you mentioned that it has its flaws. As I generally do not like chart-bot play, I want to know how you approach pushing ranges now, after a few months since release of these videos. What would you recommend to player who played a few thousands games, understands some of the basics, to improve further? I have been playing micros for a few months and although the results aren't too bad, I think my winrate is low and that I make a lot of costly late-game mistakes.
All the best,
Yeah I mean as a general rule, the WIDER/LOOSER a range is, the more important high card value is - A high, K high and even Q, J high.. The tighter a range is, the more important not being dominated is, being suited/connected etc matters. Same with versus calling ranges (the less that calls you, the worse random trash high card like axo kxo is).
The second question I would try watching the second series I have, and if you still need more info to ask me questions. I would also consider getting some coaching, I am not trying to oversell myself here (you will see I answer basically every question and rarely mention this) but I think you are an ideal/perfect student to get coaching with me in terms of your situation (good general understanding, decent sample size already etc).
Add me on skype if you would like to discuss further (you can ask questions obligation free of course). The cost is somewhat high but I can basically guarantee you it will be well worth it long term. Also the first lesson is money back guarantee (not worth it - don't pay )
thanks for your offer. I guess I am going to watch your second series first and keep playing until I finish it. I am definitely planning to get coached in the future.
Anyway, I added you on skype (I hope you are the only omgclaydol there, lol).
See you around,
