I want to play like you when I grow up! The only problem is that my bad english do not allow me to understand everything. But could understand most of it. And watch you play is priceless.

Hey thanks for the kind comments guys! @JONGORDON84: Poker doesn't always have to be super complicated. Sometimes stripping it back can make it become a lot less complicated. Just keep on training, playing and improving. Things will then start becoming more natural!

Vs 2 opponents i think we can fold a pretty wide range. Vs 3 or more i call K4s and similar hands. K4 os i always fold in these spots along with other junk hands.

I min open any 2 OTB

A2 i think is a fold even vs fish. I would much prefer to open hands that can flop well such as suited connectors or Q9s type hands.

I actually prefer to flat such hands. Sb vs bb is a brutal spot to be in. We can call pre, float the flop and take the pot down on the turn a lot as villains tend to shut down once called. Its almost a white flag give up spot. I would be again on blanks and check a spade. We have the Js also so we have equity vs anything that is not a bigger made flush.

Basically a lot of battles happen btn v blinds and we can get it in vs a wider range. Also players at this level peal 4bets with worse so we get value from that also. Vs an unknown JJ is borderline. I think QQ should always go in here.

Yeh we can deffs adjust to opening bigger amounts. However the general strategy is we risk so little to win so much. A lot of players just fold their blinds without thinking about it, also a lot of players forget that blinds mean BLIND BETS. So attacking them to get folds is the main priority and that is generally what happens in these games. If a player starts to call then fold a lot pre then you should 100% be pumping it up more and more.

I think any suited cards, hands that connect well (upto 3 gappers), any A, most Kx then q7 , j8 . Q2 os is just to wide imo

Anacondadiseaseon 14/2/14

20 min the K4o hand in the BB how wide would you close the action there because i feel like we are getting pretty good odds on a call with alot of stuff although being OOP clearly sucks

22 min in you open Q5o OTB thats pretty wide. whats the widest you would go here?

sorry for all the questions hopefully others can help answer :)
