In this first episode, danzasmack introduces you to the wild ride that is 6max Limit Holdâ€™em. After touching on some basics, danzasmack discusses the finer points of early position preflop play, as well as some postlfop â€œtrouble spotsâ€ when playing out of position.
"Well, I'm getting 15 to 1." danzasmack provides a comprehensive introduction to Shorthanded Limit Hold'em for those new to the game. Basics will include things like starting hands, hand reading, and developing table reads. More advanced topics include adjusting to table dynamics and preparing yourself to move up in limits.

Very nice introduction. I loved that you got into the post-flop play in the first video. Books usually cover all of pre-flop in all positions first and by the time I get to the post-flop stuff, I'm drowning in starting hand charts and blind steal info, that I've forgotten about the feel UTG. Loved the second part, especially the explanation about getting away from a hand like AK when in a multiway pot. Also the explanation about why you are betting on the river (to get called by a worse hand or to fold a better hand). Very basic, but essential stuff one forgets when multitabling or tilting.
I enjoyed the video, although it was mainly basic stuff I still found it helped to go over things that I had half forgoten about, I'm looking forward to the rest of the series, and if they are all up to this sort of standard I am sure they will be excellent.
Very well done. Clear, complete and logical. I like that you are including reads with the basics. On the QQ hand with the river ace, I assume you fold to a raise because of your previous read. I wish you had posted 3 months ago when I started 6max. But you will overtake me soon. I looking forward to the rest of the series.
Really like the video. Perfect for my stakes I think. FL 2/4 6max.
A question about the graph you show on the video.
Is that your winrate from the small stakes play you did for this series?
Looks like a really good winrate.
I barely break even due to the high rake on 2/4. Thank god for bonusses and rakeback.
Looking forward to the next episode..
It's a fortunately unfortunate situation that I was unable to post my small stakes graph (2 computers).
that graph was actually from the time period right before I started working for deuces, and is made up of all 10/20 and 15/30 6max.
I'll be posting details of my play at these stakes in a later episode, as pokertracker review is something I think a lot of people don't take enough advantage of.
Hi, just joined for the 7-day trial and this is the first vid. I watched.
Question: The first two hands that you have as examples (QQ on a XXXXA board; AJ on a JXXXK board). The point you were making is to value bet the river inspite of the scare card. My question is, what would your play be if you were to be raised on the river? My play would be to call, but what do you think??
Two other questions:
1. What is your range/action vs. a UTG open-limp? Do you over-limp with any hands? Does your range change? You gave us the hands to open raise with, but what if the UTG opens with a limp?
2. What is your range/action vs. a UTG open-raise? You gave us the hands to 3-bet with, but do you ever want to cold-call?
I am feeling a bit overwhelmed with the starting hand requirements you have mentioned in all of the videos (especiall #3) you had mentioned that you used an excel spreadsheet when you started. Do you have a chart that lists everything you have covered? It would be extremely helpful to have that up when working on the concepts in your videos.
