    Simply great videos, not just this one but all your videos. I have really improved my Sit'n go and MTT game with your videos.

    One question though, is it possible that we can get to see you play a 3x rebuy on Stars, like the 60K GTD 1 dollar rebuy? Would be super exciting to see what you opinion is on those kind of MTT's.

    Collin, thanks a lot for the videos! You do really Great Job!!!

    It will be very interesting to see your play in the tournament, which was mentioned in comment #2.

    One small question, please: is it possible to join to your team "Team Moshman"? do you have some criterias? maybe some exams? Thanks in advance for the answer.

    #2 first part: are you reading my mind? I join the club of Collin's admirers: books, videos, and when you think you get everything new videos come up with fresh ideas, is this even possible? Thank you very much for your work, definitely made me better player!

    Nice video Collin.
    On you last question/hand. I think a fold would be better on that spot. Your risk/reward it´s to high, you push 4k to win 900. I would wait for the short to get eliminated.

    @15:00 you open 66 UTG with the plan of raise/folding.
    Given that you will rarely get called + you have no implied odds for your set when that happens, wouldn't it be better to raise/fold hands with some blockers here? While being careful not opening too many hands obv.
    It's like we are playing 66 because it's a pair and therefore "it's a strong hand", but if we raise-fold in fact it doesn't matter.

    #2 Olekia: Thanks! If I have a deep run in a 3x turbo rebuy I'll definitely use it for video content. If you have one you FT, feel free to get in touch and I may be able to use it :)

    #3 Dgk1982: Thanks, really appreciate that. You're welcome to PM me for more info on joining TM.

    #4 SDK1987: Thanks for checking that spot, agree it's close for sure.

    #5 Vycn15: Thanks! I really appreciate the nice feedback.

    #6 Kimchee688: I prefer using Nash as a base point and adjusting, but SNGWiz is a great tool for exploitive ranges. For the best way to remember ranges, I would read up on the idea of pivot points, which my friend Greg Jones talks about in his ebook Crushing Online SNGs.

    #7 Laci24: You're welcome!

    #8 IFlopRoyals: Good point on the risk/reward, thanks for commenting :)

    #9 Xmiammiamx: That's an excellent (and somewhat subtle) point. It really doesn't make sense to open a hand we're r/f'ing vs everyone at the table, that has no blockers, unless we're opening pretty much ATC. Nice comment!

    Last hand: I would be tight in this spot and fold K3s. I might only shove like 20% or so. Reason is in bad risk:reward.

    If we win side pot how much does it help for future HU? I think our likelihood to win HU wont change much at all. So as I see we take high risk for small reward.

    Thanks Collin, I feel honored! :-)

    I tried to put that hand into the Nash calculator, but our raise range was super tight cause the program made opponents shoving wide... I tweaked ranges by hand; the transition is surprisingly sharp. Hero's range goes from 5% to ATC (but with most hands being actually close to breakeven) by just removing a few hands from opponents range.

    On the "transition point" I managed to find the beautiful following 75.5% range: 77+ Tx+ 94s+ 95o+ 85s+ 85o+ 75s+ 75o+. lol.

    Blockers FTW!

    #13 Xmiammiamx: Right definitely, in high ICM tax situations Nash will have people 3bet shove superwide over opens. Ranges like 77+ TX are pretty funny to see even though they make sense with the right assumptions (including no flatting). I wonder in practice how many regs openfold 66 and r/f T2o? :)

    Just realized while reading the comments that I read the Colin comments in Colin Moshman voice!

    Great video!
    When talking about constructing ranges I have a question regarding this.

    If one is a sligtly loosing player or have "too low" ROI in 18man (or any other game) what would you do/study to correct one's ranges ?

    thanx, very thorough :)
