  • GodlikeRoy


    Thanks guys :)

    Let me know what you want for future videos. I'm likely to do another live video next (with deep stack play) but am open to suggestions for further videos.

  • kaiptn


    solid vid,

    it would be cool to see videos with some comparisons between shallow and deep play as you did in the beginning of this video ( also talking about dif. stealing-, 3betting ranges etc)
  • DrugsOrMe


    +1 for deep plo vids

    Do you always buy in for 20bbs on the shallow tables ?
  • Kojika


    I'm just stupid and misread a bit of the action (saw the 5/10 tables when you have 20bbs).
  • GodlikeRoy



    It depends on the stakes I am playing and how well rolled for them I am, as well as what the line-up looks like and how many tables I am playing.

    In general, the higher the stakes, the more likely I am to buy in short.

  • supeyrio


    so is it possible to play profitably with 20BB on shallow tables? and what kind of variance do we face? can you share your standard deviation stat on holdem manager? really interesting, cheers
  • GodlikeRoy



    Yeah I do think it is profitable to play with 20bb on shallow tables, however at the lower stakes the rake will eat into your winrate a lot more than at higher stakes.

    Standard deviation by stakes, filtered for < 35bbs:

    25/50: 56.59
    10/20: 62.70
    5/10: 61.81
    3/6: 68.61
    2/4: 65.95

    Hello, Roy. Here are some questions from russian community:

    Hello, I am just a beginner in PLO. First table 43d minute. Your hand is AA99. Flop 36J, Turn K. I just don't get why you keep pressing and pushing all of your stack on such a board? What worst hand you're expecting to see opponent calling? If villain has only pair of Jacks - he won't call, andif he got two pairs on turn, he will. So why are u betting there? Is it for value or for protection?
  • iNspiRe


    One more. 1st table 15th minute, Hero steals from BU with AK57s and then folds after villains 3bet. Then you say if you would have a Jack - you would call, saying your Ace killes your equity. I just don't get it, your opponent can 3bet with a hand like AQxx, witch is dominated by your hand. Why Jack is better in this occation?

    Hi GodlikeRoy,

    I liked the vid a lot. Even fell in love with your simple HUD. Would you like to share your HUD colorcoding config? I experience a lot of difficulties giving certain ranges to certain values. It's hard to find any information on this subject.
