Re: The well, oldjude.

How does your 1on1 coaching compare to the videos you make at leggo?

Do you have any idea why Boywonder hasn't made a vid for leggo in 6 months?

Re: The well, oldjude.

What's the lowest limit you've played?

At what stakes does it become necessary to work on winning significantly in non showdown pots?

Thanks!

Not my well, but this is such a standard question that I've been asked so many times, and I'm 99% sure Jude agrees with this... You don't work on non showdown winnings. You just play well. And playing well is necessary at all stakes. So work on playing well. If you try to work on non showdown winnings you're guaranteed to start spewing instead of actually improving your game.

I do my best and don't hold back information in both my videos and my coaching, i have had plenty of good feed-back from students so hopefully it is helpful.

No, i don't know him.

play money. But the lowest limit i've put in decent volume at is 1/2(50k hands i think).

Yes i agree with Grindcore. I have never actively tried to work on improving either my showdown or non-showdown winnings. I just try to constantly plug leaks and play better.

Thanks!

No problem, i've enjoyed doing it.

Re: The well, oldjude.

dont know if you have been asked this but since theres so much 'red line' talk and u accredit it to just playing well, what do you think it is most regs do wrong that result in their redline being negative/break even? could u provide/make up any specific examples?

i was going to say is it just due to not bluffing or value betting thin enough, but your 6max blue line doesnt seem to be terrible so you're clear not a total showdown clown.

Re: The well, oldjude.

Not my well but it's hugely stylistic, and in many cases positive redline sacrifices blue line and it's very difficult to have both lines crushing. Most people put way too much thought into it and obv the only line that matters is greenline. Right now I have a slightly positive red over my last 125k or so because of some changes I've made, and while my wr has increases there's so many factors involved. Most good TAGs with negative red lines will crush the pos red line guys' blue lines. Drunk iPhone post but just try to make every +ev decision u can and forget about all the lines. Your not gonna dramatically increase your red line without losing blue line.

Probably not v-bet very thin, i think i used to v-bet too thin. That and not fighting hard enough for pots maybe.

Invisibility. Think about it. You could do most stuff with it.

Probably the same only a bit tougher.

Re: The well, oldjude.

Very nice thread oldjude. Thanks for your time.

I have 2 questions concerning your preflop game (NLH 6max 100 deep).

1) How far does your preflop range change against regular opponents? F.e. do you raise/3bet/4bet Aces more like 100% or 80%? In other words, do you have a more static preflop game against regular opponents or does it change a lot opponent dependant.

2) Do you think your preflop game is close to perfection? Do you think there is still space for developments in preflop game?

I play my game fairly straight up but try to keep my opponents on their toes and take some funky lines too.

No. Yes i think there is probably a decent bit more room for improvemendt in most peoples PF game.

Re: The well, oldjude.

How important do you think that it is in HU/6max to learn to play well OOP and defend your blinds liberally? I used to be (maybe still am..) a nit OOP and folded in every marginal situation both preflop and postflop.

Hi Jude, v impressive, I played against you in Waterford a couple of years ago and you drove me mad with your 3betting...we had lunch one of the days. Pretty happy you lost that massive race with bigmickg in hindsight!

Great read aswell

Re: The well, oldjude.

I have watched some of your videos, but can't remeber how you play, so I'll ask this..
Are you more a guy who's 3betting/getting it in light a lot or flatting and putting people in tough spots postflop or do you mix it up?

How much do you donk bet? Is it a big part of your game?

Re: The well, oldjude.

Hi Jude, this is a great well and I read all of it.

I know you said you weren't taking strategy questions and I don't blame you for refusing to divulge your own tendencies in cash. But I do have a question for MTTs:

Since you're from a SNG background, what's the minimum edge you took when you reshoved or open shoved in an MTT. Is one BB in expected value about right to account for slightly inaccurate calling ranges?

I don't think it hurts to be overly careful about not getting involved OOP. If you defend too loosely or tend to play OOP too much it can be a devastating leak. I am referring to 6m, in HU it is essential that you familiarise yourself with playing pots out of the BB or you will get killed.

The latter.

I try to do it as much as i can since i think it is a hugely underused weapon for most players. I do it more than a lot of regs but not enough i think.

Despite you saying this, you defend your blinds pretty lightly in a lot of spots from what I've seen in your vids, do you credit your heads up experience for being able to get away with this?
