I’ve always thought players used the term whale too liberally but this is the first I’ve heard “nit whale” Skuz's Road to 500nl+ 2018

c-betting less than a 1/3rd pot on q63 with aces vs a bad player is a mistake should bet way bigger and start piling the money in.

Don't think it is terrible vs a bad player when you can bet small on flop and "give him a good price" to basically continue with ATC or induce him into raising as well.

agreed. Huge mistake not betting big for value vs a whale. My sizes were really off this session

Hey Skuz, based on your recent live experience, how exactly would you equate the difficulty of 2/5 and 5/10 live to online? Was it significantly softer or just slightly?

Hey mate,

Enjoyed your video series, I look forward to seeing more 500z hands reviewed.
How is live poker going and is it softer than Ignition? whats your hourly like in comparison knowing you beat 200 zone.

So my sample size at live (for this year anyway) is relatively small so my opinion my not be super accurate. So Sydney Star Casino has 2/3 and 2/5/10. I have only played like 6 sessions of 2/3 this year and this is extremely soft. Probably equivalent to like 2c/5c online. I have yet to play 2/5/10 because the waiting line has always been ridiculously long. I am going to try play it sometime in the next couple of weeks.

When I went to Melbourne last week, I played 2/5 and 5/10/20. The 2/5 game was also ridiculously soft. I think it was one of the softest live pools I have played in my life. Just to put it in perspective, on one of my tables I moved from my seat to the left of what I thought was
the spot of the table (whale) only to be told 10 minutes later by another reg that he was one of the top winning regs at 2/5....

The 5/10/20 game in Melbourne was the first time I actually felt like I was playing against opponents who actually knew how to play. There was a lot of 3 betting and 4 betting and it reminded me of online. I didn't play for too long on this table so I cannot really make an accurate comparison but I would say maybe 50nl or 100nl equivalent. One of the regs could probably compete at 200nl. Although you mainly just target the weaker players, since you are battling 9 handed, so having other competent regs on the table becomes less of an issue compared to 6 max or short handed online.

Thanks, lets hope I get there so we can review some 500z hands hahaha.

Yes live poker is incredibly soft. Sometimes I wonder why I even bother working so hard on my game to increase my winrate at 200nl by 5-10$ an hr when I could just go play live and increase my hourly by $30 with no stress and little work.

I am not sure what my hourly would be live, since I rarely play but I have been told by live regs their hourly. On Ignition my WR is 4bb/100 and I play 500 hands per hour so $40USD an hour. If I play 2 reg tables it would be an extra 150 hands per hour. So my hourly is $52usd an hr. Apparently a good 5/10 reg in the US makes 70usd an hr and I have been told the 5/10 regs in Sydney make close to 75 AUD an hour.

So I don't know if this applies to the casino you are talking about, but most the the casinos I play at in the US have a call ahead list. I do that on my drive down which is normally 45min to an hour away an by the time I get there I am normally top of the list to play. They also have an app for how many players are on the waiting list, how many games are running & what games/stakes as well.. check it out BravoLivePoker app. App also has poker rooms phone number, any promotions going & if they have a BBJ and how much it is.

I think I can call ahead of time. I don't think they have a sophisticated app for poker waiting lists etc. Its ironic how we have the highest rake in the world yet we have the least amount of comps and "extras" like apps for waiting lists. I wonder where the money goes..............

Generally I just turn up and happy to play any stake really. If I go with a friend I generally play 2/3 with them. I think next weekend I will go play 5/10.

Small Update

As for online, volume has been very low (20k hands so far) but pretty good start to October results wise (+15BI).

Study schedule started back up last week. Did about 10 hours of study across 3 days. My study group has dedicated Tuesday Wed and Thurs for study. We did some database stuff on Tuesday and then Wed and Thursday we looked at 3b pots IP as non aggressor.

As for videos, I have got some footage from last week so I can probably start up videos again this week.

How could that guy ever fold a10 there. That was truly confusing. Worried you have AA, when hes getting nearly 4-1 and he has a blocker.

Yea I was really surprised. The funny thing is, if I had a value hand like KK or AA, and saw this fold I would be very suspicious hahaha.

If this was one of the viewers/readers (and yes I know it is going to be slightly embarrassing) but I am curious to know what the reasoning behind the smallish 3bet size on the river.

This hand is seriously wtf status... did he tank all the way down to river? I wonder if it was a disconnect or something, just absolutely crazy he folds that.

Must have been a disconnect. HAD to have been. I disconnected on 50z in a 400bb pot last night with nut straight on the river, extremely tilting.

I forgot about all the issues ignition has been having past few days with disconnecting and auto timing out people so this makes a bit more reason to believe it was just a disconnect instead of the most ridiculous fold ever.
