Fullring Video, Some updates

Here’s a new video of me playing 4 tables of NL50 Zoom FR. My volume is still a little low for the first 1/3 of this month but I’m starting to ramp up my efforts to play more. So far I’ve played around 28 hours with 20k VPPs and a nice 9k profit for the month.

    Hey Gavin, nice video!

    I was playing full ring 10NL zoom today and I can’t believe I saw a supernova player who had a special status “earned over 1 million vpps lifetime” playing at 10NL 9ring zoom. I was very confused of why they are playing such low stakes, the amount of bounses/FPPs they earned should be able to play 100NL+ fairly easily. Are they playing low stakes on purpose?

    Thanks alot!

      well he’s either really bad and didn’t bother improving on his game, or he is making a video for some training site

    If you want some ideas for some future video’s. What about a session of 100nl, 4 tables or 6, you decide, where you have a topic you discuss, when there’s no interesting spots. Best I could think of in the moment would be, what is the biggest leaks you think micro regs are making, and what is the best way to go about it at that stake, then do the same for 100nl / 200nl, what are the biggest leaks, and the best thing they could do, then you can talk about the stakes you currently play, what (biggest leaks of regs, and what they should be doing).

    A lot to talk about I bet, but by playing the stake in the middle, like a leverage point, so maybe easier to process for poker minds that aren’t that developed.

    Got some new ideas for video’s!!

    – You go through what you think is the best layout and setup to use on Stars, what skin, what hotkeys, stuff like that, would be pretty interesting!! How to tile tables, if any methods that are better, why etc. A lot of options and customization on stars, would be cool to get the rundown on what you think is superior!!

    – It’d also be cool to have a session where you focus on HUD, so when you get a situation, you go like “in this spot, I want to check this stat, because blablabla, and this is how I can abuse, exploit”.

    – Maybe play fewers tables, and go over the most common spots that happens a lot, and how you can exploit people, that kind of shit would be really insightful.

    – Would also be cool to have a vod where you don’t talk much at all, you just play your normal games, and your normal stake, and you do your normal routine.

    Oj, another vod that would be amazing, you talk sometimes about doing equity calculations, playing around with some programs and stuff.

    Would be awesome to get a tutorial on how to do that, how to play around with it, something like that would be amazing as well.

    About 50nl & 100nl:

    Considering high rake at small stakes (~8 bb/100)
    how wide (%) would you defend vs BTN minraise?

    Rake difference between 50nl and 100nl is ~2 bb/100
    Whats your estimate of skill difference in bb/100?

      Honestly I have not looked into this matter. I wouldn’t be surprised if my defending was a little too loose. Personally I play mid-stakes and I’m SNE anyway with 60%+ RB this year so I’m not too concerned with high rake.

      The average NL50-NL100 player would proably be platstar or SN, with ~25-33% RB. If that’s the case you’ll probably need to take into consideration rake issues more and should defend slightly tighter compared to what you would otherwise defend. If I had to make a guess, probably multiply the “optimal” loose defending range by 85-90% to compensate for rake.

      I cannot answer your second question because I have not really played those limits extensively since 2009 and I’m also not one to bother too much about bb/100 Winrates.
