Hand Readers, are they really soul reading, or just really good at situational cognitive thought? Come find out as Terp and Orange expand on last episodes topics and include some example hands.
Ask any great No Limit player what his biggest strength is, and heâ€™ll tell you itâ€™s his ability to read hands. We hear the term â€œhand rangesâ€ thrown around left, right and center. Why? Orange and terp explore the answer in this series, primarily focused on hand reading, equity distribution and balancing. A must watch for any micro or small stakes player.

this was pretty bad.
Can you give us some more feedback about what we ca do to make the vid better? Were there quality issues or is it in the content, etc.? Constructive criticism/feedback is always better for us whenever possible as it gives us a chance to do our jobs better.
Good video. The sound fucks up from time to time, but aside from that, this is really really good!
From what I can tell it looks like it was a Skype error -- again, one of the unfortunate consequences of trying to record dual instructor videos; while the video content almost always is better with two people than with one, the technical problems can sometimes cause hiccups like this.
this was pretty bad.
sorry you feel this way - what might we do better?
i apologize for the sound issues. my old computer really struggled to run everything and i'll look into defragging and all other options.
dave and i have most of the rest of the series sketched out, but we'd be happy to consider anyone's suggestions for direction. we also welcome challenging hands for analysis in our series so please message us with either!
All right, really loving this series and it's concept cos I feel handreading is a pretty weak part of my game coming from a donkaments background. Anyway yeah real shame about the audio quality but tis done now, hope the rest of the series is sweet, looking forward to much more discussion on this topic.
In terms of improving it, thinking maybe if you had a few more solid slides to exemplify points it would help so you don't have to conjure up extreme examples on the spot to illustrate yourselves, you could create some pretty though provoking spots. Also thinking that it would help so that you wouldn't just take turns to explain yourself and the situation one at a time, rather get into a discussion together and just give you a foundation to just start going what if he's this player type of if the turns this card or he does this etc. Finally, be nice personally to get a better grasp on some standard and non standard lines to navigate through tricky spots and situations and a discussion on why and who they're effective against, think be nice to have a template of some decent postflop plans of attack aswell as inducing thought and creativity, anyway appreciate it, godspeed.
Obviously it's standard not to include results in normal hand-analysis, but I think in the context of this series including the villains' hand at the end actually is important. This is because the point of the series is how well we assign hand ranges, so the "result" of the hand is not who won or lost - rather, the "result" of the hand is whether the hand he actually had was indeed in the range we assigned to him. We need to see his cards to know whether we got this right.
So, in the AJ hand v. the fish, you should show the result so you can say "Look, our range-assignment was correct, he did indeed have TJ". Or, against the TAG, "Look, he had 88 - that makes sense in terms of his preflop range from MP".
Hope that makes sense.
