    I'm pretty new to tournies (a long time cash game player) and i was wondering, is min opening standard as blinds get bigger? I'm not sure what you use for "measurement" (maybe avg. stack:blinds?) but when do you only need to start opening min vs the 3x/4x of lower levels?

    at min 30: maybe you should note that Deryl23 was limp-raising with AA

    Nice video, I look forward for part 3 =)

    Really good explanations, which are easy to understand.

    minute 35:15 you get 2:1 odds with AJo vs someone who shoved with 10BB
    and a fish with 56 VPIP. How is that an easy fold???
  • Semesa


    pretty much never. by the time the stacks get to the size where it MIGHT be possible, there are ante's which give BB 4/1 pot odds and SB 3/1.

    I think your discussion about shoving AQ suited preflop against Ghand and daryl is far too results oriented. I didn't even have to watch and I knew by the way you were talking that the 3bet was going to be some kind of trash.

    If he is 3betting trash then this means he is bluff raising against a UTG raiser - a mistake. Is he really good enough to know that UTG will fold? What about superfish daryl? Surely 3bet bluffing against a UTG raise AND daryl in the pot is a mistake right? If he is stupid enough to try this then let him have the pot.

    To be honest this is the most results oriented analysis I have ever seen in my life. Good fold.

    I love minopening or 2.1-2.3x-ing when effective stacksizes (the lower stacksize out of yours and the opponents yet to act behind you) are less than 20 big blinds.

    @Semesa: actually it turns out against better players if you open larger it gives them a better "price" for 3betshoving, which means that you can't steal as often. I'd rather min-open and have them call (wee we're in position easy game) rather than get 3bet-shoved on a lot.
  • chenny8888


    @noclaninator: in an MTT given positions etc we can assume a certain amount of 3bet bluffing. 4betting is quite bad, as is folding. Calling is best in hindsight. Although the analysis may be in part results oriented, calling is still the best play
