Watched him a bit, I hope he doesn't get popular because the exploititive way he plays is exactly the correct style to crush micros. I get a good lul from the lab users who after months of hard study still can't beat 5nl and they have no idea why. GTO isn't worth looking into until you're playing 100nl or higher and even then I'd wager exploit play would still be very profitable.

Nothing says "keep it a secret" quite like posting the above on the most popular subforum of the most popular online poker forum. Good job, nuxxx!

yeah, cause no one has ever thought of THAT before .... DING! I just realised something! Bet really big when I have a strong hand! Overbluff where people overfold! Break through! Genius!

Luckily there's many genius posters like the one above to counter it.

calling this a challenge is absurd.

Nah, the challenge isn't to see if he can do it, the challenge is to see if he can do it better and faster than Doug did it.

He has a real dislike for what he considers unnecessary GTO play. And for some reason he thinks that Doug is the poster child for this unnecessary GTO play. I really don't understand this, Charlie seems like an excellent player and a smart guy, but the reality is that Doug is quite likely the absolute best exploitative poker player who ever lived. Doug played exploitatively so well, that everyone else had to learn GTO to remain competitive.

I don't intend to sound like a Doug fanboy, but this just seems so obvious to me. I can't fathom a world in which Charlie could be a better exploitative cash game player than Doug. It just doesn't compute in my head.

He keeps making river snapcalls that are losing against the 5NL population but are necessary to be unexploitable. What happened to **** GTO?

DP: Hmm, my opponent seems to be 3betting me extremely aggressively so I'll:
1. tighten up my opening range a bit
2. call 3bets a bit lighter
3. 4bet lighter for value and add more bluffs
*beats up everyone until he can get no action*

Charlie: Hmm, my opponent seems to be 3betting me extremely aggressively so I'll open and then 4bet 94o, I run $5M over EV anyway lmao.
*opponent folds*
Charlie: **** GTO.

Seriously, listening to people like him and many posters in the thread fills me with massive optimism for the future of poker!
I was at first sceptical of his piggybacking on Doug's challenge for views, but there might be some positive conspiracy to make the whole poker ecosystem more sustainable!

Re: Epiphany77 starts a $50 to $10k BR challenge to show his methods are better than Doug Polk'

Should be fun to follow, charlie owned me at z500 with one of his exploitative plays .

Don't really agree with charlie's views on 9/11 or religion, they are pretty dumb imo.

regs at microstakes are super exploitable so I wonder who is actually debating gto/exploitative here, exploitative will always be the highest ev strategy.

also agree with low buy in bankroll management strategy as the way to go. Actually using 10-20BI is fine, you can just drop down in stakes whenever you lose 2 buy ins, and you'd never go busto using this strategy. (pretty much employing zeno's paradox as your brm strategy). This is mathematically approved and risk free

It seems like a lot of people discrediting his poker ability because they dislike his personality to me. This is stupid. I've played him at z500 and he is a legitimately solid reg from the little i saw.

Re: Epiphany77 starts a $50 to $10k BR challenge to show his methods are better than Doug Polk'

Since he seems unable to understand what GTO is, I'm going to guess he also can't seem to understand why jet fuel doesn't need to melt steel

There's a recently discovered phenomenon called gravity. I watched a YouTube video about it and now I'm convinced that gravity is real. Alex Jones will probably try and debunk it though. Because he's a lunatic.
