Meh. I can see combining them, but I would hate to see the turn barrel get short shrift as just one area of the c-betting article. You raise a good point. I'm ambivalent.

Other people's thoughts?

It would probably be a good topic for the same person to cover, since they are obv logical continuations of each other, but deserve two separate posts/threads for cataloging and discussion purposes imo.

Re: Project COTW Update: Authors Sign Up For Listed Articles

I am willing to do one or two if needed, but I haven't been a regular online player for a year and a half now.

I maybe interested in updating the donking one, I know mpethy loves that I did that one.

Re: Project COTW Update: Authors Sign Up For Listed Articles

Not all of the volunteers have signed up yet. Please to be signing up so I can make the new schedule.

Also: just received word that the powers that be have approved a COTW-related custom undertitle for the volunteers.

D4: you're in if you want in. I don't have a fixed number of authors I want or anything like that. If you're doing donking again, just confirm, and if you want to do anything else, just call dibs on it too.

Re: Project COTW Update: Authors Sign Up For Listed Articles

I'm going to be a little busy this upcoming week until basically Friday, after that I've got an ocean of time. I'm also up for working on what ever, but was thinking that if the person I want to work with wants to help me I could perhaps take this one

Quote:
Using the Overbet (This one isn't linked; it may not exist, I didn't check, but it's vital to have a new one on this topic)
But only if it's okay with you guys and if said person wants to help me with it.

Other topics I'd be interested in are:

- A conversation on bet sizing
- flop check raises
- bluffs and blufffing

Mzbourg: no worries, we'll be lucky to have the schedule up by Friday at this pace, so there's 0 chance you'll have any work to do on a CotW before then.

Re: Project COTW Update: Authors Sign Up For Listed Articles

hate to be a letdown but I don't feel I can improve on any COTWs in your list.

I would love however to do the Mental Game COTW. I think it's one of the more important concepts too.

OK, take your pick (or you could sign up for both; they'll come 2-3 months apart on the schedule...)

I'd like to be as early as possible on the schedule. Sounds silly but I have a good idea of what I want to write about and I'll be more motivated with a deadline lol

August 5 would be good for me, unless you have a specific order in mind already.

Like to tackle the preflop raise sizing (vanguard) one.
Will also look at 'How Stuff Works: Preflop Raising' (NewSkol) and 'Varying Opening Range and Size' (thejuggernaut).

Think most COTW's could simply benefit from a link to one of Split's 30+ free videos on pokerbank.

Re: Project COTW Update: Authors Sign Up For Listed Articles

I'm going to space these out a bit more than a week, as not everybody has signed up for two or more.

So here is a schedule, more or less at random:

August 5: Using Poker Stove: Cangurino

August 14: Donking: DonkDonkDonkDonk

August 23: Playing small pocket pairs: xxMaquiladoraxx

September 1: Mental Game: DKBarrel

September 10: Adjusting to stack size: PitaPita

September 19: Preflop Raise Sizing: DreadX

September 28: Last Red Line Post Ever: mpethybridge

October 5: Defending 3 Bets: YouFaiil

October 14: Default line creation: xxMaquiladoraxx

October 23: Bluffs and Bluffing: PitaPita

November 1: Varying Opening Range and Size: DreadX
YouFail: I know that's sort of short notice; let me know if you have a problem with it, and, if so, we can figure something out.
