      Had 1st session. Made a couple helpful changes to my hud.

      - removed unnecessary filtering;
      - added very important stat for hypers;

      That should help me realize that I need to steal wider from SB, which is a leak in my game. And also will mark hands from HU for study.

      Villain is a reg 16/15/6 and BB fold to steal 70% after 500 hands filtered for 5-6 handed. I'd like your thoughts for preflop and all later streets cause I have no idea how to play such hands.

      Hey,
      Pre i usually just flat in this spot with this hand to keep their range as wide as possible. But on your stake 3b for value seems decent as well. Against 4b i would just toss it away, cause it is still AJo. Really hard to say with what hand to flat 4b or 5b. Everything is player and meta dependant. But in your games i would just go broke pre qq+ and ak+ against single player. (unless player is some sort of NIT)

      If villain plays back a lot then i wouldnt raise this hand pre. As played flop is standard (u could make it even smaller a bit). Turn is ok when he has some 6x and Ax hands and he is going to fold them. Otherwise i would just cbet on flop and ch/f on this turn.

      Alx, good job for posting hands. This way i can pinpoint your mistakes easier. Cause u will post hands where u have problems and then we could analyse similar spots later with our sessions.

      I've spent like 10 hours on SNG Wiz quizes this weekend. Wrote down some common leaks to try and spot them ingame too. Mostly I don't call enough vs shortstacks, don't categorize my opponents enough and push too tight HU.

      Don't really have much to post for evaluations since I pretty much can solve everything myself. There are some spots where I don't know what range my opponents might have, some HU spots and some postflop. I have marked a lot of hands. Gonna filter them and post tomorrow. :)

      Hey guys,
      It is half month when we started it and we havent even done basic things (just skype chat and some sessions), cause i just cant reach u guys. If you want to continue this then lets finally talk and arrange coachings (and lets make it like iam not the only one online while the coaching should be). I really dont have much time to just through away. I expect that u come and ask from me, when could we do the session, or lets look some interesting hands or sth. With this attitude i can not continue. It isn't what i expected from these sessions.
