    i don't like so much this format... i think that cash is much better, and a player with more edge could win more

    CollinMoshman, why do you think minrasing is good in these? You think EV for minrasing is better then for shoving that much, that it compensates 3 more hands we could have played instead of postflop after minrasing? I kinda think even 20bb deep is gonna be better to shove, and play more hands after, instead of postflopping half the time of the tournament, what do you think?
    Tnahk you!

    nice video thx
  • CollinMoshman


    Thanks guys, appreciate the nice comments.

    MagXedin: I think min-raising is good because when you are playing a format without ICM, you're usually correct to be minraising more than shoving at stacks well above 10bb. You can use the software Holdem Resources to show this ... it's a very good idea actually, I should do this in an upcoming Wednesday coaching :)

    Interesting video. Maybe I'll try out this format myself too, even though I am mainly a cash player :)

    CollinMoshman, Im not arguing that the EV of minrasing is going to be better that shoving. Im saying that the EV of minrasing is going to be lower than showing + playing 3 more hands, while you still play postflop of your minrased hand.
    The duration of a tournament is 5 minutes but the amount of hands you can play is not limited. if you play minrase a lot you have a lot of postflop, so you will have less hands per one tournament average.
    Also, when analysing minrasing spots in HRC its important to include BB flat calling defence. Because no one folds BB to a minrase nowdays. That will lower EV of minrasing very significantly.

    #21: I'm focusing on maximizing cEV/hand, but you are right -- it is possible to fit in more hands by playing just shove/fold so that is definitely a fair point -- thanks.

    #23: Appreciate that! I would recommend adding to normal stats raise first by position for CO/Btn/SB as well as BB fold to steal.
