I read all three but dont have any saved on this pc sadly. 3rd edition obv is the nutz and likely a much better investment than many training sites nowadays
You dont say, ill check it out, btw, did you check out any 6max DC vids that you liked? I like FWF a lot, are there any others that you recommend? is slowlane123's advice aplicable to 6max (i doubt it isnt) but you know... nitring...
currently watching balugawhale's latest ghost series and diggin it. guy is pretty much (dare i say it) the new giggy!
slowlane has some pretty good vids for anything tbh and his betsizing thouhts are pretty solid. been a while since i watched his stuff but there s no reason why midstakes fullring strat cant help an adaptive 6max player
Meh I thought EasyGame was pretty outdated now, some of the x/c donk lines he was suggesting were pretty flawed and bad. Only read 1 and 2 though, didn't even know there was a 3, whats it like?
3rd edition is the first two editions with corretions or suggestions from his 2011 viewpoint. i think the lines you talk aout are pretty decent tbh in spots where they obv are applicabe (vs weaker players that tend to check back a lot but call with big parts of those hands)

Yeah idk, I guess it was better than pretty much any poker book I have read, but didn't really teach me anything new and I am only a 100/200nl player so don't see how it could really help any decent 400nl+ players.
There are definitely some videos out there, and even standard posts on RIO that have taught me a tooon more.
btw, i read easy game 1 & 2 and while some of it did seem a bit outdated there was still some very solid content there. I mostly liked the chapter on HU. Probably also a bit outdated but at the time I wanted to get into table starting more and it helped me tons.
got a coupl fun hands to post later. played 2 sessions today so far. one more to come. decided to restrict myself to play no more than 9 regular tables. sick how i can play 24 fr tables no problem but 2 6m crushes my skull. gotta get 80 more vpps tonight to complete my first month of 6500 vpps to keep nova. not that it matters much but still nice to push myself to do some volume once in a while.
righty, month officially over. getting the hang of the action on reg tables. fun to only play 9 tbls and again get to think spots thru. did spew away 6 stacks to start the day but then took a break and rostuckod that and 4 bi more. more of that in february!!!
couple fun hands from today:
1: vs a reg stealing quite wide from the small blind.
Hand 1: I like it I think you can actually just 3bet it to $2.00 because you lose less when he 4bets and keep the SPR a touch bigger for when he flats. Not a big thing though but your sizing is basically a bit over 3x and I think you get about as much folds with an even $2 3bet at a cheaper price.
Definitely some leveling going on ith. I don't know this villain but I think his thought process here is probably one of the following:
a) He figures you missed the flop a bunch and will just give up if he check raises you small. Okay not much leveling going on here...
b) He knows that you know that he doesn't really rep anything by check raising this flop but tries to level you by basically just clicking it back to gain more credit/look strong. Like if he thinks you know that he understands that he probably can't expect many folds with this sizing then he can expect his bluff to work that way.
c) Villain actually has a good value hand that he wants to get it in with you and is trying to induce you to spew with overcards.
I think the way you played it given your hand is the only way that you can really win the hand because 3betting the flop for value just doesn't make sense unless you think villain check raises small overpairs and you think you can stack him NOW but not on a bad turn card.
What do you do on different turn cards though? I'd assume that a lot of villains airballs here are overcards so any J+ turn can be tough to play.
What do you do on a 6 or a T?
Weird line but I think I fold the turn because I don't think that our A and K outs are always clean here. What is your reasoning for not stabbing at the flop but on the turn?
OTHOH, if villain has a big hand why the hell is he taking this weird line. His check raise should be bigger or he should be leading somewhere.
Seems like a decent board where villain can c/f. I'm assuming that you bet the turn because you are basically trying to push him off of small pairs and just collect the dead money? Seems like the flop is probably just as good a spot for that if not better.
I gotta fold this river. I think the over shove is value more often than not even though his line makes no sense. Why does he shove here as a bluff? I mean obviously you are folding a draw if he bets like $8 right? Or at least he would think you would
Your range here imo looks like pure busted draws along with some Jx. I don't think you are going to be checking back the flop with sets or QQ. So if this is a bluff then he must think he needs to shove to get you off of Jx here, which is interesting because given his ******ed line, I guess he would need to shove to get you off Jx especially given that you are obviously contemplating a call with A high here.
I know I'm all over the place here but my guess is that he is just a bad reg that tried to play a pretty good hand all fancy but then when he got to the river he realizes that the pot is way too small for his hand so he tries to rep a bluff with this shove.
h1; pre is impossible to analyse without reads properly but intuitively raising the turn seems bad (why would you jam anything ott). Pre though it is definitely a bad adjustment to 3bet a hand as good as T6s vs someone who is opening wide.
h2: I just fold and assume he's ******ed with a nutty hand. almost 0% chance he is a reg with this line imo.
1st hand is just suicide imo, lots of 25nl players just flat upto QQ here, so he can have a lot of PP in his range... not sure how many of these he is raising to a cbet though.
Obviously you rep a big hand with your play, but i just dont see this type of player EVER folding a pair like 8s and above in this spot, especially vs you, which i imagine he knows how agressive you are anyway.
I see a lot of 1010 JJ hands played like this, when villians arent sure if they are ahead and dont know how to play it, so they do weird small raises, also see some min raises with these hands preflop
Dont see the point in making bluffs like this myself, dont think thats where the profit at 25nl is made, would like it a lot more if it was a different Club than a 2, then at least we have a flush draw if he calls and a bit of equity.
Hand 2, fold the turn.. you said yourself that he is nitty, and people who are nitty preflop tend to play straight forward post flop.... again, he probably knows you are aggro and may be trying to trap you by not cbetting and knowing your likely to take a stab at it.
Id guess he has a nutty hand like 1010 or even JJ, and hes trying to build a pot on the turn with that large raise.
Would be interesting to see the results.
Nice to see someone else moving away from the ZOOM tables too, decided myself that i would go back to normal tables, was doing 6max only 6tabling and i can run a HUD, makes you realise just how easy the games are when playing so few tables and being able to take advantage of all the small pots you can steal.
But im 24tabling FR now, i also think there is more money to be made than at ZOOM, seems like even the fish at ZOOM can fold the garbage hands and you just end up walking into the nuts everytime.
