    As an advert, I took Spoon's suggestions to the next step. I looked at every showdown hand from one reg, noting ranges and tendencies throughout hands. I played this villain tonight on several...

    There's an upside, however. You don't need 40 BI at 25nl to have fun against decent players. Just load up some 2nl and 5nl. For a recreational player, it's nirvana.

    By the way, big gambling news...

    I'm back on FTR, and it's good to see some of the old regs doing well. GLGL!! Glad to hear you played well in Barcelona.

    Regarding "games are dead," it's interesting. I play cash, not MTT's or...

    Really? I'm finding tons of things to use at the tables. In the last HW assignment, I found:
    1. An overbet tell.
    2. A flop bet sizing read on another player I wasn't analyzing.
    3. A leak - cold...

    Good goal.

    However, winning is fun. Moving up is fun. Withdrawing (and spending!!) money won at the tables is fun. Buying poker books, poker software and better computer tools with your winnings...

    ^^^^^

    From personal experience, I know it's much more difficult playing a mega-weak range when stealing. If you steal less, your range is stronger, you have more equity post, and it's tons easier...

    Thanks, Spoon! I've done the HW for lessons 1 - 6, and I'm totally like one of my whiny students at the university:

    "The HW's really HARD."

    "I'm too tired for this."

    1. I struggle with outliers, like when I have HH showing a 3bet with K8s when he's only 3betting 8%. Is he aware? Does he have a read? Or is he just clicking drunk?

    Villain is VPIP = 23%, PFR = 16%, AF = 1.4, Raise First In = 26%, ATS = 36%, Fold to ATS = 73%, 3bet = 4%, 3bet vs. steal = 3%, and Fold to 3bet = 66%.

    Sage advice. Thanks!

    I have a couple of regs with ATS > 40% and Fold to 3bet > 90%. So I can 3bet lighter, keep hands like TT or KQ in my flatting range. Both ways are money.

    Now I'll be...

    Wow, advice from Griff in the op thread! Thanks!

    I read this before I played tonight, and I've been taking a close look at these types of hands. Having equity oop can be hard to deal with, but if...

    OK, I don't have a ton of hands on anybody. I'll post what I can, then try to go through other examples higher up the page and comment.

    I like the promo - I'll get to work! I've been waiting a bit because I had 1k HH's plus on only 1 villain when I started, but I have been doing Spoon-inspired work in my old op thread.

    OK, Hero has a hand like 88 and 99 in the blinds, it gets opened by the CO or BTN, everyone else folds. What do we do? 3bet? Call? Feels like way too much equity to fold preflop, but how best to play...

    Villain is 19/14 over 1915 hands with ATS = 27%.

    We've seen him steal with A8s, A6, 66, AK, JTo and T9o. I find this range problematic. He seems to open any two 9+. If that's the case (and only...

    BB has ATS 3/3 times from SB and 3/4 times from BTN, has folded 4/5 vs. BTN steal attempts. He steals a lot himself, and the only time he didn't fold to BTN steal attempt was a 3bet. So one of two...

    I find it interesting that Hillary, as Secretary of State, lent so little Clinton-era style to the foreign policy of the Obama administration.
