      Just one more question, I'm trying to put pressure on my opponents nearing the final table during an MTT by how much should I increase my bluffing frequency also along with stealing blinds and possibly protecting my BB's more often are there any alternative strategies you might employ? Thanks.

      Interesting podcast. I asked you this question during a seminar, but I realize you were very limited so I will try to get a reply now.

      You have said that we should be opening from BU more than Snowie suggests. But if we play speed version of poker (zoom, rush, speed poker) people tend to defend a BB more often, as they can't press fast fold button. Would you recommend to stick with Snowie opening range for speed poker?

      Hi!

      @WilliamTell
      unfortunately I'm a cash game expert with very limited MTT knowledge. Please ask this question in our MTT Board: http://www.pokerstrategy.com/forum/board.php?boardid=1499

      @thewinner44
      Yes. You should open raise >50% on the button in speed/rush zoom games. It is really rare the people defend their blinds enough.

      Hi KTU,

      Did you test Snowie's heads up skills? I presume you are not a HU specialist, but from knowledge you gained would you say Snowie is stronger HU or 6 max?

      Maybe noob question, but I have trial version and when I make new scenario it says I can't get evaluation until scenario is complete.. I took a look at the tutorial for scenarios and tried to do the same thing, still the same message PF when it's my turn. Is there anything I missed here? Why won't it give evaluations? Do I have to state who is hero? Is it because I have trial version?

      Thanks

      I played HU vs snowie and, he was ok, I think we were breakeven playing. But in 6max, it was super easy to win, I was playing 100 VPIP and 100 PFR, and printing money.

      snowies preflop ranges will get worse as each additional player is added to the hand. It's not really fair playing snowie with 100% vpip 6 max. The value of snowie is in learning balanced range construction postflop with 'standard' betsizes. It's preflop ranges will be off because it doesn't account for a weak player in the game

      Hi Jules,

      I never payed for subscribtion for snowie, so I cant tell about his ranges. I read in snowie description that it plays at very high level poker, and plays unexploitable. When I see that I can print money playing 100VPIP, then it means that snowie is playing far away from unexploitable strategy. Unexploitable ranges should play at least breakeven also vs 100VPIP, which is not the case with snowie. So if they claim that snowie plays at very high level, and is unexploitable, then I didnt want to look further snowies ranges. I could agree that snowie is good if I use only standard bet sizes (as snowie is using), so that we play approximated poker, but then you say 100 VPIP is not fair vs snowie, which means snowie will play good only vs ranges that he expects to see? off course, if you have accurate assumption about opponent ranges, then it is not hard to play good.
