One question for you. I am a solid winner at $5NL and break even at $10 NL. The site I play charges a $2 max rake at $50NL and $3 at 100 NL. I was wondering how much you feel the rake at that level can help your win rate since you actually win pots big enough to win money that isn't raked- any pot bigger than $40 would not be raked past $2. I am just wondering if I might be able to have a small win rate vs breaking even at $10NL due to the rake not being so excessive. Any thoughts would be great.

Thanks,
Phishman

Ya, I get it. Overcalling isn't a simple recipe type of thing- have to consider the ranges of other players. Very good explanation of why you didn't call in that particular situation.

The time stamp was 21:21. If you have any general overcalling strategy you could explain that would be great.

Thanks,

Jared,

Good vid. Do you know a good source (book, online etc...) for overcalling ranges in full ring (opening ranges would be good too) I have found sources for 6 max, but not full ring. When you said that KJ is a 3 bet or fold hand there, I was thinking I would call there- I think this is one of my leaks. Are you looking more for suited connectors, pocket pairs, etc... there so that you avoid domination when you overcall?

Thanks.

I really liked the vid. Thanks. I am new to online poker and GTO, but have been studying it a bit lately to get a feel for it. I am currently reading Applications of No Limit Hold Em. My approach from what I have learned so far is that GTO is a really good starting point for betting freq, bluffing freq etc... but that you need to adjust GTO to match the tendencies of your opponent- e.g. reduce bluff freq a lot versus calling stations. Do you think this is a good approach? Should I still study GTO to understand it but just apply it in the fashion that I am thinking about above or is it better to focus on studying other aspects of the game? I also play a lot of live NLHE and understand that the exploitative adjustments from GTO are even larger against poor opponents in these games too, but have found it somewhat helpful against good thinking players- any thoughts on this would be good too.

Thanks
