Great series. I really like the "student/teacher reviewing recorded sessions" format. And yes, Baluga is awesome at explaining things in clear terms. Tuba, I got luv for u too, don't worry! lol. Anyway, first of all, yeah, you guys seemed to be looking at the wrong stat windows for several of the players, not that I think it made much difference, but it was a little confusing. Finally, I have a big question. Where's the luv for 2nl, 5nl, and 10nl?? I haven't seen any videos for anything less than 25nl. Why is this? I'm just starting out, and I'm much more comfortable risking 2, 5, or 10 dollars instead of 25, 50 or more. Ok, that's all. Thanks for all that you DC guys do! =)

Just watched this and had to add a 5 star rating and a comment to BalugaWhale who was amazing.

Only got through about 5 hands in the hour but the depth of the conversation was amazing.

I think you should give BalugaWhale a series where you just prompt him with some random poker question and see how long and how in depth he can go before running out of things to say Grin

Maybe no one saw my earlier question, but I am wondering where's the luv for 2nl, 5nl, and 10nl?? I don't see any videos for anything lower than 25nl. Why is that??

The concepts are going to be very very similar to $2nl, $5nl, $10nl. I'd recommend looking at From the Ground Up and Baby Steps to find some great materials/advice for those limits even though the levels tubasteve and n0whereman play are higher than the limits you're specifically looking at. In order to become the best player possible you're going to want to learn about the how and why and not specifically the what -- so while you may be looking for a $2nl vid, you really should be looking for videos that cover basic concepts like hand selection, pot control, and basic handreading against loose passive opponents. In order to give you the best advice possible, we try to match up our instructors to levels that are as close to what they are familiar with ("teach what you know"), so without any instructors really playing a ton at those levels, it would be disingenuous for us to try to coach specifically to those games. That said, I still really think you can get the most out of watching $25nl-$50nl vids and applying those concepts to the games you're playing in. Smile

hope this helps,
Rob

I have questions about a few of the hands that were not commented on in the video. They are as follows:

38:00 88 in the BB. Should we have lead out on the flop instead of check/folding and why?

47:45 K7s in the CO. Could we ever raise an unopened pot like that instead of folding and why?

50:40 KQs in the BB. Should we have checked the flop instead of c-betting and why?

55:25 T3s in the BB. Should we have bet at any point in that hand instead of checking it down and why?

1:09:55 K8s in the BB. Could we ever 3bet or call in that situation instead of folding and why?

1:14:50 65s in the BB. Could we ever 3bet or call in that situation instead of folding and why?

That's all. Thanks again.

I just want to clarify what was said about not raising A8o from the cutoff with 2 loose passive players in the blinds. When you have players in the blinds playing over 40% of there hands do you not want to steal with any ace rag from position,but any pocket pair and suited connector/gapper is fine? I still find it strange you would lay A8o down when you're so far ahead of the donks range and could get value from his middle pair.
Can someone just go over this once more so my tiny brain can fully understand it.
Thanks. Grin

Tuba: "Yeah, I think with the K T 8 rainbo.."

Baluga: "Stop, I'm talking"

Tuba: Stunned silence

Baluga: "So.. yeah, as I was saying, I think with the K T 8 rainbow.."
