In their second video Luceboy and md261 review a $200 6max SnG played by one of their stakees and discuss reg-on-reg metagame in detail.
Luceboy takes theory of SnG's into a whole new level with this series of theoretical discussion as well as practical applications.

you guys know your stuff but seem to spend far too long on trivial topics imo which makes it get tedious quickly. give your viewership more credit when reviewing $200 tournaments
Al and I are always looking to improve our videos so could you offer some concrete suggestions?
Whats the point in the shove here with 34s ? i disagree with all in imo. dombomain33 could snap him off with any 2 over cards or pocket pair !
I understand your concerns regarding the shove. It does look weak, but dombomain is a solid, well known reg and his range here is also weak. All that matters when analysing whether to shove or not is his limping range vs his calling range.
He understands enough about ICM and bubble play that he will not be calling light here. In any case I would have expected him to raise if he had any kind of a premium hand, even AA. His limp indicates that he has some kind of a marginal hand and that he (correctly) assumes that if he raises he will get reshipped on approx 80% of the time.
Even if he is only limping the top 25% of hands, his calling range is almost non-existent. I would hardly ever expect him to limp/call in this particular situation given the size of the short stack. The disparity between his opening and calling ranges is almost as wide as it could possibly be so the shove is definitely +$EV.
Really enjoying this series for the theory discussion even though I don't play 6max SNGs.
Is the series on hiatus, when will the next ep be posted?
DC had planned to alternate between my series and "jjyykk"'s MTT series on a weekly basis. Something went wrong with his first episode so they ran 2 of mine in a row, then two of his. I expect to be back this Sat (14th), then alternating weeks after that.
