Reg looking to make massive improvements to his game

Hi all, I've been grinding on and off for 6 years, and in the past 2 years I have played 14,819 MTTSNGs and MTTs, average buyin of $2.95, 28% ROI, including:

7,289 $2.50, 11.2% ROI.
2,976 0.50c (90man, 180man), 51.8% ROI.
1,778 $1.50 (45man), 2.6% ROI. (worrying lol)

I've barely worked on my game and I know I have the potential for massive improvements. I want to get to 20%+ ROI in $2.50s, and eventually get to the $15s with a 5% ROI. I have a plan to improve and I would like input and advice on studying.

Here is my plan:

ICM and Final Table
  • flat structures
  • shoving vs. non-Nash villains
  • shoving vs Nash villains
  • calling multiple all ins

Chip EV Scenarios
  • shoves - 5bb, 7.5bb, 10bb, 12.5bb, 15bb, 17.5bb, 20bb
  • raise/fold ranges - 12.5bb, 15bb, 17.5bb, 20bb
  • raise/call ranges - 12.5bb, 15bb, 17.5bb, 20bb
  • open raise ranges 20bb+

Deeper Postflop (40bb+) (more specific stuff to me, but input appreciated)
  • which boards are best to cbet and which turns are best to barrel
  • missing river value OOP by checking instead of bet/folding with one pair type hands
  • are my large river bluffs profitable?
  • are my 3 barrel bluffs profitable?

Mental
  • read Mental Game of Poker again and do all tasks and exercises

General
  • find as many leaks as I can
  • analyse great regs, their stats and their hand histories
  • follow a pre- and post-session routine, including studying and mental game

Any thoughts are greatly appreciated.

Re: Reg looking to make massive improvements to his game

If you have 20BB+ as a category and only one above then I wouldn't make it 40BB+

Both of those go "raise, 3-bet, 4-bet jam" so I call them 4-bet stacks. In the same way I call re-shove stacks 3-bet stacks. You want to make the next thing 5-bet stacks.

So at 20-40bbs, you have a 4-bet jam range? At what size roughly do you stop 4-bet jamming? What's your max 3-bet shove stack size over 1 raise?

Re: Reg looking to make massive improvements to his game

As a rough guide I'd consider 10BB-20BB to be 3-bet stacks. Below that people are often not raise-folding so they are effectively jamming when they put in a quarter of their stack with a raise and you should treat it as such. It also depends a bit on the action. If someone opens 3x then you might well just jam 25BBs rather than trying a smaller 3-bet particularly OOP.

Roughly I would say don't put in more than about a quarter/a third of the effective stack without jamming - so practically if more than a tenth/a ninth of the effective stacks are already in then just jam rather than raising. Depends a bit though - 4 bets in position tend to size relatively small at 2x-2.5x the 3-bet, so there is often still room.

So as for when it becomes 5-bet stacks, probably somewhere around 70BBs - it might go open to 2.5BB, 3-bet to 7.5BB, 4-bet to 17BB, 5-bet all in, rather than open to 2.5BB, 3-bet to 7.5BB, 4-bet jam.(I know you could argue either is better, that's why is the borderline)
