      Hey guys,

      I am planning to make a video series about NL SH BSS games. I will start on NL $10 SH and will move up to NL $200 SH. This thread should be your opportunity to give me feedback and to give me input for the content of the videos.

      As I start on NL $10 SH I want you to tell me what you like me to talk about in the first part. What are your main problems? What do you need advise on? etc..

      Best regards,

      Oh, sorry, I forgot to mention, it's gonna be BSS of course. Well, I think I gonna start on Full Tilt, but tht doesn't really matter imo.

      Well, I realy like that you are starting this video series/thread, especialy you do it in Full Tilt where I play also. I usually play NL SSS, but started playing some NL SH, but I started more to play on NL 25 becouse of double rake on Full Tilt on NL10 (or is it double only for FR games?).
      My first answer would be, realy non easy one to answer becouse of many diferent factors- it is about starting hans requirments- but could you give us just basic guidelines- like should we and when raise some hands like 9Ts, or about starting hands on diferent positions, like is it ok to raise KJs UTG etc. Also I'm not shore wich hands to 3-bet diferent opponents ( my standard 3-bet range is AQ+,TT+).

      So to sort these questions into answerable topics :

      Some basic SHC;
      Our opponent ranges;
      3-bet ranges;

      Nice project, Tribune good luck!

      i have noticed from sample hands forum that micro stakes that a lot of players dont understand the importance of position and agression properly
      so this can be some interesting topics

      The main idea imo must be to start with the really easy staff and build from there. From how, when and why to bet to making us a poker gods :D
      Very nice idea
      Good luck on the tables

      I think it would be great to discuss some important beginner concepts such as how and why you play differently with the same starting hands and same board texture depending on things such as your position and whether you are the pre-flop agressor.

      In later limits in the mid-stakes, you could add how the oppenent plays to why and how you would play differently with the same starting hands and board texture. For example value betting against calling-stations with made hands and checking raising against maniac oppenents.

      I know the only proper way to show how you would play these hands would be by making up hand scenarios but i think these sort of theories really would help people learn to play well.

      I guess one way to show these concepts in your videos would be to refer to other similar hands played earlier on in the vid and why you played them differently Whether it be because your out of position or your oppnents a maniac.

      Hope you get what I mean.

      I would be very intersted in those videos however, i am just learning about BSS, and SH is just whole another dimension, at least articles say so...
      So make the first vids as much beginner friendly as possible.

      Great idea. Im just trying out SH after playing SSS (i think FR is boring) so vids that would progress in limits and strategy would be awsome. I think for NL10 the topics you posted would be great.

      GL making the vids and i cant wait to see em :D
