Thanks a lot, very much appreciate the effort. Do you think most of this applies to the 10NL-25NL level as well?

Looking forward to watching this soon.

going to take me a while to download but just reading your abbreviation list is interesting. Out of interest, what sort of winrate do you enjoy at 100?

Got it to work. Had to download this camtasia codec: http://www.techsmith.com/download/codecs.asp

Make sure to restart after you install.

*edit: Still won't play with VLC player, but it works in WMP and Divx players now.

Spade Re: Instructional Video JE01 - Moving up to 100nl and winning with a TAG style

I'm not done but I just noticed this hand...

some guy opens in the cutoff to $3, hero calls in bb w/A5s,

flop is Q73ss
check/check

turn is an ace putting up two flush draws
hero bets 5, c/o calls

river is a total blank like an offsuit deuce
hero bets $10, c/o folds

Guy would bet flop with a Q so he don't have that, he would call/raise with a better ace, and he's calling alot of draws, so we're valuetowning ourselves like 100% of the time if we bet. check/calling to induce is vastly superior to betting here.

Re: Instructional Video JE01 - Moving up to 100nl and winning with a TAG style

very nice video. thanks a lot!

i have a question concerning a hand (lower right table, 46:16min)

op raises pf w/ KTs and gets called by SB.
flop brings: FD and ISD. OP gets c/r and calls.

turn brings Kh w/ TPMK and still FD and ISD. villain checks and OP says "I try and like get him outta here" and shoves.

Why exactly would we want him out (what hands do we want to chase away) and what hands are calling our all-in anyway?

Re: Instructional Video JE01 - Moving up to 100nl and winning with a TAG style

Great video- I'd definitely recommend it to anyone reading here. There's a lot more to be learned from seeing someone's thought process over an entire session than more common posts where Hero wonders if he should've got away from TPTK before stacking off at some point.

The note-taking part of your video was especially helpful to me. I just started using a HUD with PT3, so it's useful to see what type of notes to put in that are more meaningful that TAG or loose fishy, or whatnot.

One hand I noticed that I'd play a little differently was on the top right table at 3:22. On the turn, you've got the second nut flush draw and an open-ended straight draw. I would've fired a bet and tried to pick it up there. It's a small pot, so it shouldn't be hard to get away from the hand if villain comes back at you strong.

Re: Instructional Video JE01 - Moving up to 100nl and winning with a TAG style

Thanks for the vid man, excellent stuff.

I have a question for you: I saw you fold AQo UTG. Is this normal for a TAG, or did you just fold it randomly? Also, is AQo generally an automatic fold OOP to a raise and call? Thanks.

AQo is not a strong hand OOP. AQs barely makes the cut, and even that's a stretch, imo.

I assume you're talking about when you have AQo in the blinds, and there's a raise and call. I'll reiterate: AQo is just not a strong hand OOP.

Sure, fundamental poker knowledge applies to any level. I probably wouldn't play as aggressively at 10-25nl, perhaps like a 12/8 style with more playing hands for straight value than getting people to fold.

True, that's a good point. I hadn't thought it through that well in the moment, I knew the opponent seemed rather loose at the time, and was kind of blindly going for value.

Re: Instructional Video JE01 - Moving up to 100nl and winning with a TAG style

I liked the video. Although i think playing on deepstacked tables wasn't the best idea given that you said the video was to help lower limit players make the transition to 100nl (and higher) following a TAG style. There is a different dynamic when you are playing 200bbs deep, which we saw have an effect on your lines in multiple hands in the video. Deepstacked a lot more unique spots come up when I think it's probably better to be educating lower limit players on more standard spots where they have a decision for only 100bbs. Preflop ranges, opening, 3betting etc are going to vary a reasonable amount in deeper games so I think it probably makes it a bit harder to apply what we see in your video to our own games if we are only playing with 100bb stacks.

Apart from that nice work, and thanks for the video

Yea I explained this hand badly, I think I was distracted by talking and the other big hand going on at the top left table.

Youre right that nothing worse is calling unless he thinks im bluffing, so I should have said 'lets get him to call way behind with draws and worse hands cuz it looks like I'm bluffing'. I also could have bet like 25 dollars trying to get a call or shove from 78/AJ/NFD etc.

What would you have done on the turn?

Thanks for the feedback! Glad that you got something out of it Mog. I am having trouble however, finding the hand you refer to, I see no action on that table at 3:22.

AQo in EP is a standard fold for me. The only reason to play it there would be for range obfuscation. AQs however, I usually raise for said reason because it flops much better. Around MP I start raising AQo if it folds to me.

It is definitely not an instafold OOP ( I assume you mean in the blinds) facing a raise and call. If it is a good squeeze play opportunity, then AQ is a fine and common hand to do so with OOP. I would not be flatting raises OOP with AQo though, it is a raise or fold.

Re: Instructional Video JE01 - Moving up to 100nl and winning with a TAG style

i'll try to finish it tomorrow...but from what i saw...

1.) dont like the KQs overlimp in EP/MP. iso the idiot
2.) with KQs OTB from EP raise by aggrotard...i like callin 150bb deep rather than makin a rly odd stack size pot with a semi-strong hand.
3.) with 96cc when u river ur flush against aggrotard...make it $44 on the river rather than $33. hell call off a lot of his range...so make the most of it when he does (also, i love the "spaz-raise"...works like a charm against aggrotards)

looks good so far. how often are u changing ur PFR from 3.5-4bb?

(also...didnt who u were. just assumed u were 2p2 (cuz weve played together some))
