      Any suggestions or feedback from the previous weeks 180 man session would be appreciated. If any of you have any suggestions on what you would like to see then please let me know in here. I am happy to do anything from subscribers HH reviews, go through some of my HH's, live sweats, push fold ranges, any particular area of 180 man strat you want to go in to in detail?

      Just drop me a line here and I will endeavour to make some material on any relevant topics (of which my porn collection is not one).

      GL at the tables.

      Hello TomSom87,

      I've watched your video and enjoyed it. I liked that you explained several hypotetical scenarios and what types of actions you could take.

      For me I was hoping to see more of:

      - since it's turbos I think it's more valueable to talk more about mid to late stages, instead of full HH review: shortstack play away from the bubble (<13bb), bubble play (~30 players left and FT bubble), FT play (particularly 4 players or less) and HU;

      - talking about the "why's" with both hypotetical and specific hand analysis examples instead of "what I'd do in this spot", because (for me) I'm used to know what to do (based on experience, reading and videos), but not always do I actually know the right arguments or math do support it;

      - discuss specific topics on push ranges: why you should widen or tighten your shoving range against specific oponent types, starting with the standard plays to more stats or reads/notes oriented;

      - and also the same on calling ranges: eg. against regs or recreational players;

      - decision-making about odds to call against villains ranges: assessing ranges, determine the odds necessary, and deciding on the table while playing;

      - your opinion on R/C, R/F spots, regarding stats and possible ranges, and on making a "non-all-in all-in";

      - more math in general on 180man turbos :)

      - a bit on variance and mindset for this type of game.


      Thanks in advance and hope to see more videos from you. :)

      Thanks for the feedback. There is a part 2 of this video that looks at the late play and there's quite a bit of HU play. I will certainly take into account your feedback and try and expand on these topics going forward.

      If you would like a HH review as part of my session please feel free to email me one.

      Next week will be doing a live sweat so hopefully will get a lot more spots to look at and will be able to show how I use the HUD to make decisions. I'm planning to keep 12 tables open for the duration so will hopefully get some decent sweats and some areas for discussion.

      Only 2 videos released at the minute which can be seen here:

      Part 1

      Part 2

      I think you only need a bronze status (but I might be wrong about that).

      The first of your videos requires the basic status (indicated by the white button which is followed by the language flag and the descriptions).

      The second one requires at least silver status (silver button).

      How do you think is the better way to review sessions? Review only marked hands or review last 100 hands in tourney? How many hours does it take to review your own session?

      I basically just play what I feel like. Just keep registering whilst I feel good about it. With having a full time job as well, there's no need for me to put myself under any pressure to play if I don't want to.

      The only time I tend to review my own sessions is with horses and other people. Most of the time my review sessions are looking at other peoples HH's and I find that you can learn a lot from seeing how other people do things. It also gets you to question why you do things the way you do and motivates me to plus hands into programs like ICMIZER and try and find out optimal solutions for hands.

      There will be no 180 man session this week as I have got man flu and dont sound too good at all. Last thing people want is 2 hours of me coughing and spluttering I'm sure.

      Normal service should be resumed next week, although I am moving house on Friday my internet provider have assured me I will be fully installed an ready to go on Monday morning.
