downloaded wmv and it only downloaded the first one minute and cut out..also why is the picture not as clear as some other vids
Just re-download. There aren't any problems with the WMV, so there's something on your end that interrupted the download for some reason.
The picture isn't as clear because the student (JLee) recorded 4-tables at 50% the resolution of normal, probably because he was recording on a smaller screen or a laptop. Steve tells me most of the vids in this series are larger, but it's the same way things worked with King for a Day or Hoodie Wars, where re-recording we're limited to the original quality that people submit, so it's not 100% in our control.
Tuba and baluga thank you both for video review definitely some great concepts. On the pocket 77 hands where i squeezed against a guy who was opening large range in steal position I was just looking to take down the pot where he is folding almost all of his range. Are you ever squeezing hands like this against loose opener as unlikely either player is paying off flopped set? Typically i would call with this hand here. Probably misapplying concepts seen in video.
A10 hand definitely was raising for value against player who is stealing 45% of the time, post flop i was definitely lost so i guess calling/folding is better pre flop.
Thank again guys
I think a couple of times you attribute stats from his HUD to the wrong players. Not that that is very important. Anyway...
Amazing video. I think I'm gonna have to re-watch it and take notes on all the concepts Baluga was talking about. That dichotomy between pre-flop ranges and post-flop ranges (the A8 v 48 discussion) is something I haven't heard articulated that well even though it is something people probably intuitively know. An absolute tonne of info in here
Balugwhale (and credits to Steve also) is da bomb, man that guy can explain things and more worthfull i guess, he makes you think hehehe, one one, one day i will have the monies to hire Balugawhale as a coach! Amen!
Great great series again by Deucescracked!
that 99 hand was so great to look at, i mean most of the people tell us lowlimit players , "no set, no bet"! Great insight!!!
Yeah yeah yeah, Baluga is the nuts but what makes him interesting is, judging by a lot of internet posts at 2+2 is that his, similar to Chaostricize, ideas are pretty controversial. Not all people agree with these guys. They seem to have a special take on NL. I am sure Krantz and Whitelime are like top of the food chain but these guys somehow can express the thought process to the top level.
