In the first part of this Fixed Limit Fullring series Benido talks about the preflop play.

Additionally he explains exceptions, talks about important assumptions and discusses some examples to prepare you for the preflop action and different situations you might face on the tables in the micro limits.

    Can I use this SHC for 6max FLH ? What adjustments do I need to make ?
  • Benido

    Hey Azarelz!
    Nope, you shouldn't use the SHC for 6max. In the next video (Preflop advanced) there will be a different chart: the Open Raising Chart (ORC). Just use this one and the additional charts instead. They are discussed in a silver article as well, so you don't have to wait for the video. The article is called "How to play shorthanded (with charts)". The ORC for fullring will be part of the second video :)

    He Sally, have you updated your Flash-player recently? I would advice to do so first as no other user reported problems here.

    great video. I'm a new player and this has helped a lot to explain some situations. like why i sometimes want to raise a hand i think is good and i just get bullied off the table by someone with a big raise and i lose out on the hand whether its good or not. Probably because i am going in with a hand that just isnt strong enough and i would know that if I was analysing the other player's moves properly. i will trust in the chart! 10/10 for video :)

    I found the mistake! In the italian version, the SHC is missing few info on the mixed hand!
