    Thank you, really great video.

    How do you seperate the hands by number of players?
  • LLuq


    Thank you for 6max content.
    I would push AQo in the BB at the bottom right table, because as you said before, just calling in the BB sucks because you have to check/fold many flops. I think he would call almost any Ax and KQ, and u have a lot of fold equity. The stack sizes suck a little bit but I think the push has a better EV than flatting. I also don't like the completing in the SB an the Bubble because the BB never fold to a small bet on the flop, and raises or pushes almost always if you complete.

    Nice video anyway.
    More of this please.

    @LLuq: Could you give the time of the hand you are referring to?
  • faarcyde


    @elekadammate: I assume you are speaking of HEM filters...go to "Additional Hud Filters" in the HUD options menu item and set them for 2-2, 3-4 and 5-6.

    I believe LLuq is referring to min 17:45. Lokking forward to the next parts of this series.

    Exactly :D
  • faarcyde


    @LLuq: If you play around in Wizard you will see it is almost impossible to make this a +EV shove unless he is opening greater than 50 percent and calling less than ten percent which I think is pretty ambitious of a thought. Basically I don't like any option here but I decided calling is best since he appeared to be a very poor player I think I could make it worth my while to flat.

    I don't see that 85o being so standard?
    The NashRanges are:

    SB 56.6%, 22+ Kx+ Q2s+ Q8o+ J4s+ J8o+ T4s+ T8o+ 95s+ 97o+ 85s+ 87o 74s+ 76o 64s+ 53s+
    BB 32.3%, 33+ Ax+ K5s+ K7o+ Q8s+ QTo+ J9s+ JTo

    How do you play in the BB against SB pushing 65% or more?

    In my point of view he can easily call this 33% as he is the smallstack and it is not the bubble.

  • ivelin67


    Hello , since there are no other SH Sng videos , could you make this one accessable for users with lower status or produce other SH SNG videos, on lower stakes maybe?
  • Tim64


    good stuff, thanks trfc.
  • faarcyde


    @Pokertalent: Could you give me the exact time. Thanks.

    @Iveline67: You are in luck, I believe my next video will be available to all users for a period of time.
  • ivelin67


    It would have been great for me to be able to watch your videos , but unfortunately , the next vid is also available for platinum users only. :(
    I don't know if there is enough demand for this kind of SNG's , but it will be great to produce some vid for at least gold members. :)

    Hey there, faarcyde. There are some questions from russian community:

    1)What stats are you using when HU starts and why?
    2)What do you think is better in HU - SAGE or Nash and why?

    We appriciate any assistance!
  • faarcyde


    @Inspire: HU I usually use the standard ones and c-bet, fold to c-bet, c/r, fold vs turn bet, aggro factors, WTSD and W$SD. SAGE is basically a cheap version of Nash meant to help you remember it a little bit easier. I just use Nash.
