    @2 - Try 720p for best quality, if you then full-screen the video you will see the quality is completely fine with these options!

    Awesome! Go vonki!

    Video quality was definitely good enough in 720p although it could probably be better, but I could see everything just fine!
    Voice is nice to listen to too, and explanations are thorough and clear!

    WP Vonki, hope to see more, maybe at higher stakes? :)

    There's less to win from the small blind than from the button? The SB we put on the table isn't ours anymore.

    lol ooops. You're absolutely right, my bad. :X

    Thnx for pointing it out :)

    Personaly I am not a fan of opening hands like 22 33 44 UTG as when we hit a set and gets action we will most likely be in bad shape, maybe not on those limits but still.

    there are are a lot of different opinions of that. Because some people say the blind is dead money and not yours anymore, and others think its your own money.
    I dont know whats the true

    Just compare the 2 options. We raise from the button and everyone folds we win 1.5BB. We fold we're +- 0. Difference is 1.5BB.
    We raise from the SB we win 1BB in that Hand. We fold, we lose 0.5BB. Difference is again 1.5BB. So there is no extra value from stealing the blinds from the button.
    But anyways nice video, nice voice.

    #13: thnx for clearing that out :) and thnx for the feedback!

    #10: Yes, there are different opinions about this. I don't use all pocketpairs to setmine even vs UTG against some opponents either, but I think on these stakes you can get away with it, simply because you will get payed by overpairs/top pairs etc often enough. But if you're not sure if its profitable or not, folding them is def not a big issue either :)

    I don't know if it would apply to Fullring - I personally find it essential to get creative in the BU and SB in Hhorthanded uNL.

    Great video! I am beginner, so it helped me a lot. I like your detailed comments on opponents ranges and their mind processes. Keep on doing great videos!
  • vonki

    #17

    #15: Sure, getting creative in SB and BU def helps in FR too, esp since people in general fold more (at least thats my impression). Would you care to elaborate "getting creative"? =)

    #16: Thanks for the feedback! Glad you liked it :)

    i like the content, vonki. but you gotta work on the "ehm" a little bit i think, don't you? ;)
  • vonki

    #20

    #19: hehe, yes. So I've been told :D I agree btw, but it's no easy task making a video of your own when you're used to TwiceT always having something to say and saving all the awkward silences :D jokes aside, thanks for pointing it out and I will try really hard to cut out most of my "ehms" in the future :)

    Is a 10% opening range in utg really "tight" nowadays? When I see someone with a good sample opening 7+% from utg I 3bet him/her to death in position. He/she will mostly call/4bet with only about 3% and fold everything else that I run an immediate profit when I 3bet 2,5x to 3x.
    So how do you deal with aggressive 3bettors like this? In my opinion you could ercommend beginners only to leave the table because otherwise you'd have to counter them loose 3bets by 4betting your weakest hands like 22 or AJo. That would lead to difficult spots for beginners.
    Personally I like raising hand like QJs, JTs, ATs and T9s more than 22-66. That's because my equity can improve more often on the turn so I can 3nd barrel more often when people start to float me because they expect my range to be shifted strongly towards pocket pairs.

    #26: Well, it's relatively tight. I agree, alot of people do open too "wide" and fold tons and tons to 3bets, and I too 3b a decent amount vs UTG for this reason. How I would personally deal with it is something I think is best left unsaid, as you say it will lead people into tricky spots for beginners. Apart from 4betting or leaving, you can also simply just tighten up your range, and leave out some of the hands you would have to fold vs a 3b. But the truth is, from what I have seen, that it doesnt really happen too often that you get a player aggressive enough on your left, esp in FR where there are more people for him to target. If there is still a whole bunch of worse players, you can def just stay on the table, but tighten up your range a bit. If the table is not that good anyway, you should try looking for a better table for sure.

    Nice video Vonki! You have a really nice voice for these types of videos. Smooth and clear. I need to open my button range some more it would appear. I think I only currently open around 30% from the button. I didn't think it was profitable to open around 50%+. I play zoom so it is probably even more profitable against the super tight players. Thanks.
  • vonki

    #33

    Ty DrDunne! Working on something atm so keep your eyes open!

    #32 thanks! Yea, 30% from BU sounds like you can def open your range up! Just keep an eye on the players in the blinds! If theyre rocks or nits you can open really wide, but if you have loose players in the blinds you may not wanna open any 2 cards. I def think on Zoom, like you say, you can open up alot. I havent played much of it, but when I did, alot of players just autofold a huge part of their range. Try it out and see what happens! :)
