Re: ****Official Beginner/Basic Question Thread****

Hey newbie.

First of Spin& Go, yes its because of the amateurs.

1. There are a bunch of ways to go about that. One would be to split your poker time, one half you use playing, the other you use analysing and studying. It is really hard to get better in this game just by playing, especially when you play a lot of tables. However, every table you add, no matter your skill, subtracts from your winrate this will quite go away. You simply cannot pay the same level of attention to say 8 tables than to 2.

2. Not sure what H2N is, but my routine had been to simply mark any hand I felt in the slightest unsure about and then review them all. Coaching/Study partners can help a lot, let them look at whole tournament HHs they will find leaks you wont.

3. Try color-coding after tendencies. I used something like: Nit, TAG, LAG, Loose-passive, Adaptive Reg, Unadaptive Reg...
Also, if you use a HUD, see 4.

4. Setting up a HUD is a science of its own, so here is a short version:
Steal stat or Raise First In on BTN/CO/SB are awesome stats, because they tell you how positional aware a player is.
Agression Factor and Agression Frequency help a lot as they give you a good idea about postflop agression.
There are a lot of usefull stats, but if you use too many it becomes excessive and youll end up not using a lot of the data in the end. So, try figuering out which ones you need to get the informations you want.

As far as notes are concerned, try to only take notes that you dont see in your HUD stats. For example, the note "Tripple Barrel Bluffer" isnt worth much when you have a player with high post-flop aggression, as that is what you already expect him to be due to his stats. On the other hand "never bluffs river" would be an amazing note for an otherwise highly aggressive player.

5. Im guessing you use the Nash function. Thats a good baseline, but you will have to adjust ranges on your own to see how the "missplay" of your opposition is optimaly exploited by you.

Re: ****Official Beginner/Basic Question Thread****

I have learned the push/fold ranges for the Stars 9max Turbo STTs.

According to ICMIZER, I'm doing okay for a beginner (top 7% in both push and call spots).

I'm wondering how I can transfer my knowledge to regular-speed STTs. My intuition would be I should be pushing a bit less and calling a bit tighter.

But can one say a little bit more than that?

Re: ****Official Beginner/Basic Question Thread****

Technically there is no difference, same spot, same equillibrium. However I would imagine people call tighter in regular-speed, so you can argue for shoving wider. On the other hand, if you keep pushing "lightly" for a while, people will start calling wider, then you need to tighten up.

You can argue for calling tighter, but that is only true if people shove tighter. Which might be true on average for regular speed.

Youll just need to play a bunch and see how the population in regulars reacts to it. Unfortunately I dont have much experience with regulars and it is far from recent.

Re: ****Official Beginner/Basic Question Thread****

Hello,

Anybody have any relevant advice and suggestions regarding the FGS feature in ICIMZER?

I have watched the official launch videos from ICMIZER and messed around with the feature myself but would love a more in depth discussion about it.'

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Cheers.

Re: ****Official Beginner/Basic Question Thread****



Thats not really a beginner question.

FGS calculates the equilibrium of future hands.
So, its a bit of a tricky function as you will still need to "manually" calculate how far your opponents are off equilibrium. If they arent the strong players that is.

What exactly would you like to know?

I guess I'd like to know more of the pros vs cons of having FGS set to 0 as apposed to having it set to ICMIZERs suggested number when it comes to analyzing push/fold spots.

Essentially so that I am getting the most accurate answers during my study time.

Thank you

Re: ****Official Beginner/Basic Question Thread****

Some guy I know on the Internet says that the right setting for FGS is 3.

Take that for what it's worth to you. After all, from your point of view, I, too, am "some guy on the Internet."

Unfortunately I dont have that wisdom.

What I can tell you is this:
FGS simulates perfect play, so the more people deviate from perfect, FGS becomes less accurate.

What I can not tell you is this:
Whether the "bad" FGS result is better or worse than without FGS.

In both cases (FGS or not), you need to understand what the result does tell you and what it lacks. For example, a situation where you are chip leader and the other 3 players are equal in chips, will always be undervalued by ICM, FGS or not, but the effect will be less strong with FGS.

Re: ****Official Beginner/Basic Question Thread****

hoi, i play daily at least 30 sng tournaments at pokerstars. only 50/50 with buy in of 1,50 or 3,50 dollar.
i make a little profit from it (average 1.5 buy per tournament). But I play only on experience.
i also like to watch pokercontents like those from joeingram. And everytime i hear them say 'you have to study to become better at poker'.

Now is my question: What do i need to study, how can i figure out what i can do better?

I'd start with figuring out what is a realistic expectation in these games. 1.5 BI/game is insanely high and unsustainable whether you are implying it is just winnings or profit (1.5 BI on top of your initial BI). The best players make 0.1-0.15 BI/game (which would be 10%-15% ROI), but they are quickly moving up to 7s and 15s.

i win .5 bi on top of my initial bi at $1.5 and $3.5. those are the lowest stake and i know when you are good you are not playing that stake. when i move to $7 dollar i almost break even. I have the feeling that they know what to do and i play with the lights out.

Re: ****Official Beginner/Basic Question Thread****

Hi,

I see this is the thread for beginner questions so I thought I would ask here. I am new to the forum, I am really looking forward to learning more about the game. I am playing typically one micro tournament at a time. Could someone explain to me what MTT and STT stand for and the main difference between them? Also, could someone direct me to where I can post my hands in this scenario for review? I appreciate the help!

Re: ****Official Beginner/Basic Question Thread****

MTT - Multi Table Tournament
STT - Single Table Tournament

The main difference is the number of players playing, the pay-out structure and how the pay-out affects your strategy. STTs usually have a higher "ICM-Factor" than MTTs.

Heads-up & Spin&Gos are discussed in the Heads-up SNG Forum.
6-max to 18-mans are discussed here in the STT Strategy Forum.
27-mans and everything bigger is discussed in the respective MTT Forum.

Make sure to read the FAQ for posting guide-lines.
