Although I don’t any GTO background, I’ve seen a lot of PIO screenshots and all of them contains 99% of mixed strategies.
Let’s say PIO says AK is a bet 60% of the times and a check 40%, what does really mean and what we can extrapolate? We should strive to achieve those percentages?
Because I guess the 60%bet/40%check strategy is an equilibrium only if we follow the turn and river strategies accordingly right? What really happens if we bet and check 50/50?

----



While I understand what you say I find it a little confusing given what you have written before



------



I understand the what posted above and this is especially true vs strong opponents who won’t pay us off when the board is drawy and we have an obvious hand. At the same time is quite unlikely that 4 strong opponents will see the flop at the same time, is more likely that would be a mix with at least one fish in between. Vs one or multiple fishes our implied odd skyrocket, so speculative hands gain value when they hit.
Have you tried to query your DB (or even a larger one) to find whether those speculative hands aren’t really profitable? Because, at least for me, this looks like a spot when in theory you are right and those hands are overrated, but in practice they are profitable

---



If our opponents holds a draw like QT we want to charge it ofc, but at the same time we don’t want to lose value betting too big. If we are against a solid opponent he will fold the draws while actually, we hope for a call without proper oddsodds… isn’t our EV higher if Villain calls a bet without odds?
Since Villain is capped,I don’t think a competent one will shove over our polarized overbet, so that’s the case when we bet OTF and got a call we shouldn’t be simply overbet very very often, with that I mean our entire range, OTT without fear of facing something big?

------



I play NL25 and NL50, so this could be pool dependant, but the above example is very frequent and yet, I still have to see check-raises often. Seems to me that we can comfortably x/r very very wide and autoprofit since my player pool doesn’t defend 50%, not even close.
Anyway I guess that even on higher levels there aren’t many check-raises, why is that?


Have a wonderful 2020 Matthew
Thanks in advance
You're mostly asking exploitative questions.

The rake is huge. If you think you can +EV play speculative but relatively weak hands in multiway pots, then that's great. Those are the games you should be playing in so you can beat the rake. I'm all for good exploitative play so if you think you've found the spots to do it you should of course go for it.

If you are unbalanced in a spot that calls for a mixed strategy (for example, you 3-bet too much preflop with AQs in a spot where 3-betting and calling with AQs are both the same EV), then it won't matter against a GTO opponent but you will lose EV against a nemesis opponent. Against a real actual player, whether or not the 3-bet or call will be more +EV will depend on how he plays and realistically you'll just have to make your best guess based on player tendencies and/or your HUD.

Not in the slightest. The book does make occasional references to Applications, but only in respect to correcting previous poor advice.

NLHEFAP is much easier to read and while it assumes you have some prior poker knowledge, this book should immediately improve your game in contrast to how Applications might *potentially* mess up your game.

Both are excellent books, but Applications is much more geared to advanced play. An NL2 player would benefit from this book. In hindsight TP2 probably got the naming of these titles the wrong way round

Thanks for the great response! So it sounds like I should probably actually read advanced before applications. Is that what you would recommend?

Matthew Janda you're a hard person to find on the internet. My name is Johnnie Moreno. I go by JohnnieVIBES on the internet. I've purchased 5 copies of your book and given them as gifts. The only poker book I've ever read and endorse. You did a really great job with it.

I want to buy 100 copies and give them to my community as a gift, if we can work out a bulk price. Email me by clicking on the contact me on my website if this is something you're interested in discussing. Thank you for your time.

Johnnie

Hi Matthew

I only play 6 max cash game online. I heard your book covered a lot of MTT situation and less cash game. Do you think it is suitable for a cash game player?

Thank you

Just in case Matthew takes some time to respond to this, it's mostly a cash game book. I'd definitely recommend it.

No applications is not a prerequisite for Advanced.

I tend to think Advanced is better and more updated than Applications but I think there are more readers that really like Applications than Advanced. If I were you I'd start with Advanced then if you want more info go back to Applications, and where the books disagree trust Advanced more than applications.

TY for your purchases and kind words.

Regarding the 100 books, this is something you'd have to talk about with 2+2 publishing.

Yeah it's good for cash. It's more of just a "poker" book than really cash/tourney/HU/6-max/FR etc, though all the examples are in NLHE but pretty much all the concepts apply to omaha etc too.

Re: No-Limit Hold ’em For Advanced Players by Matthew Janda Reviews and discussion

Buying the book now! So many good reviews...

I used to watch your videos on CR a while ago, would you say they still relevant? I know they are not out there, just want to get a feel of what has changed in the past few years, if so, how much.

Also, do you think your 1st book is still relevant? If you could direct me, what would be the best path for someone that has quite some time to learn?

Go straight for the second book, or it is better to read the old one first? If one could watch your videos one more time, would you have any kind of advice of "where not to go" or about something that has changed, or it is math and it should still be good?

Sorry about the confusing questions, I'm really not experienced with the theory part and am a little lost trying to find the "right" way to start and go about it.

Thanks in advance, love your work!

I tend to think 2nd book > 1st book, but I think a lot of readers think the opposite.

I think old CR videos are still relevant, but would not feel confident saying they are worth your time when new, better content almost certainly exists. I'm pretty far removed from poker presently so while I wish I could point you in the right direction regarding other content I'm really not the best guy for it, though imagine other people in this thread can help and chime in. I definitely wouldn't seek my old videos out unless there's a few in particular that you think would be high value to you.
